Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Save us, Jeebus!

Well, you definitely need to check out this article:

Vatican letter says norms on priesthood must be 'faithfully observed'

The letter also made clear that, while the text does not apply to those already ordained, priests with homosexual tendencies should not have educational roles in seminaries.
Tell me how this is not going to lead to a witch hunt. His pants are too neatly ironed! He just bought new curtains! Don't let him near our youngsters! It would be funny if it weren't so sad.

The Inquisition (what a show)
The Inquisition (here we go)
We know you're wishin' that we'd go away.
But the Inquisition's here and it's here to-
"Hey Toquemada, walk this way."
"I just got back from the Auto-de-fe."
"Auto-de-fe? What's an Auto-de-fe?"
"It's what you oughtn't to do but you do anyway."

I wonder... is there a similar policy on pedophilia now?

Of course not. The Church has always insisted on its relative immunity from secular prosecution and they won't address criminal priests themselves. From their point of view once someone is ordained, he's ordained for life so the idea is to prevent problems they have no intention of dealing with. The problem is that they resist scientific evidence that homosexuality is not associated with pedaphilia. That might involve being rational and reasonable and that's not why these people are in the business their in.

As LTG is so fond of saying, "why would you expect anything from a pig but a grunt?"
