The BBC reports that theCatholic Church is planning on subjecting their priests to sex drive tests. In light of a slew of pedophelia related scandals, the Church will be testing priests for, amongst other things, “deep-seated homosexual tendencies [and] uncertain sexual identity.”
Apparently the Church thinks that all pedophiles are homosexuals and by rooting out the homosexuals in their midst, they will prevent future pedophile priest scandals that have tarnished the image of the Church and cost it hundreds of millions of dollars in law suits. The fact that this is complete crap and flies in the face of innumerable studies seems to be lost on the Church as it embarks on this ridiculous and useless witch hunt.
Why is this on Jewlicious? Because our community has also been rocked by similar, albeit not as extensive, scandals and only a factual understanding of the underlying problem will allow us to deal with it properly. Let’s not make the same mistakes that the Catholic Church has.
