    Hearsay several times removed is never a great source. Coughlin had his enemies.

    Now, if you had told me Francis had gay affairs, I might believe that.

    Clergymen are bound to vows of obedience, poverty and chastity. They are not authorized to have sexual relations of any kind. Personally, I don't care about anyone's sexuality, as long as it doesn't hurt others. It's absolutely none of my business.

    When 80% of abuse cases among Catholic priests are homosexual in nature, there is a homosexual problem as well as a general mortal sin issue.
