Oh, boy. Here's an article about the priest sex abuse scandal from today's Daily News where Cardinal Egan's stand-in, Eugene Clark, puts the blame squarely on homosexuals.

Some key quotes:

"The tendency to homosexuality is a disorder, not a sin," he said. "But the practice of homosexuality is truly sinful."

But Catholic League President William Donohue praised Clark. "He makes a great deal of sense and to have this said so articulately by one of the brighter priests in the New York area is very encouraging," Donohue said.

What's so fascinating about this scandal is that it's not even, really, about the abuse - it's about how the Church covers it up and allows these pedophiles to keep on priesting. That sickens me even more than the actual abuses.

Anyway. I didn't really want to talk about this - it just gets me so unbelievably angry. But here's the good news - Howard the Duck comes out on DVD in 2003.
