German Cardinal Lays Blame Regarding Underage Sexual Abuse

What a radical notion. Homosexual abuse of children could have something to do with the liberal establishment’s favorite form of sexual depravity, homosexuality:

A German cardinal on Friday provoked anger and controversy when he claimed the Catholic church was not responsible for sexual abuse by its clerics, and instead sought to pin the blame on homosexuality.

“What has happened in the church is no different from what is happening in society as a whole,” Cardinal Walter Brandmüller said. “The real scandal is that the Catholic church hasn’t distinguished itself from the rest of society.”

During 1946–2014, over 3,600 children were abused by Catholic clergy in Germany alone, according to the German Bishops Conference.

Society “forgets or covers up the fact that 80 per cent of cases of sexual assault in the church involved male youths not children,” [Brandmüller] told Germany’s DPA news agency in an interview a few days ahead of his 90th birthday.

The liberal media establishment that has done so much to create this degenerate state of affairs leapt into action:

“What a shameful way for the Catholic Church to relativise guilt and defame homosexuals. Disgraceful,” Ulf Poschardt, the editor of Welt newspaper, wrote on Twitter.

Poschardt can take solace that Cardinal Brandmüller and Pope Francis are decidedly not on the same page on such matters.
