Proposition: One reason the bishops responded so poorly
Advertisements [?]
to cases of sexual abuse by priests is that all their training was based on significant misunderstanding of normal sexuality. If you're taught that the normal , healthy and holy urges of a married couple are sinful and that women are the gateway to the devil, how could you understand the full impact of pedophilia? No wonder these guys all reacted like a deer in the headlights.
