sexual activity with children is not breaking celibacy?
IIRC, that gay priest could have remained a priest if he had admitted to being a sinner, put an end to his relationship, stop having gay sex (that priest said in the media that he didn't think that being in a loving relationship with another consenting adult was wrong).
The bishop has admitted to sexually abusing his nephews and he has admitted that it was wrong (although he downplays it by saying that it was only a game, he didn't think that the boy (the one he abused 13 years) was against it, etc.)
Apparently, there's a difference there but I don't get it.
Another thing I don't get. If you have read the New Testament in particular (as I have, having grown up as a catholic) and you read how Jesus acted and reacted to people (to the weak, the poor, the ill, the needy, to children, to those abusing power, to criminals, to prostitutes, to the greedy,...), how can you preach out of the bible and act totally differently? I seriously wonder how that works out in their minds.
One of the reasons why I stepped out of the church is the contradiction I saw between what I read in the bible and what I saw in the church.
It quickly lost credibility for me.
