Vatican's secretary of state links paedophilia to homosexuality


The Vatican's second highest authority said on Monday that the sex scandals haunting the Catholic Church were linked to homosexuality, rather than vows of celibacy, among priests.

Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican's secretary of state, asserted that "many psychologists and psychiatrists have demonstrated that there is no relationship between celibacy and paedophilia." But he added that others had shown "that there is a relationship between homosexuality and paedophilia," and "that is the problem."
