In a June 10 interview with The Washington Post, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano (who was Apostolic Nuncio to the United States from 2011 to 2016) cited
the Ruth Institute Study on the correlation between clerical sex abuse and the number of homosexual priests.
The Archbishop said that in the report’s executive summary, Fr. Sullins noted: “The share of homosexual men in the priesthood rose from twice that of the
general population in the 1950s to eight times the general population in the 1980s. This trend was strongly correlated with increasing child sex abuse.”
Such recognition in one of the most prominent liberal newspapers in America, but one influential in the nation’s capital, was most welcome.
An interview with Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse Ph.D. will be broadcast on “The World Over” with Raymond Arroyo on the Eternal Word
Television Network (EWTN) this evening at 8 pm ET. The interview will focus on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops meeting in Baltimore,
where clergy sexual abuse is expected to be discussed.
