Catholic Priest Says Gay Men Are To Blame For Paedophilia
An aide of the Archbishop of Cardiff has claimed that gay men are the main perpetrators of paedophilia in the Catholic Church.
In the wake of recent exposures of widespread cases of paedophilia within the Catholic church, controversy has been renewed by Father John Owen.
Speaking on BBC1's Big Questions programme on Sunday, the communications officer for the archdiocese of Cardiff stated that "most of the offences are being committed by homosexuals".
Father Owen, also a chaplain at Cardiff University, said that teenage boys were the group affected by the “majority” of abuse cases in the United Kingdom, adding: "Now what does that tell you? Now that is a fact."
