Famous actor Kevin Spacey has been taken down by, basically, one man. His snowball was enough to cause a landslide, and the man was gone. Several other cases started in the same way, with *one* credible accuser.
This is why your humble correspondent wonders how long it will be until the same happen for the one or other – or for several – of our more or less prominent and very vocal clergymen heavily, and I mean heavily, suspected of homosexuality and practiced sodomy.
Father Martin, Father Rosica, and Archbishop Paglia immediately come to mind, but there sure are many others and I do not think people like Cardinals Coccopalmerio, Schoenborn, or Woelki above suspicion in any way. How many are working in the shadows only God knows.
It is time for a #himtoo movement, where former seminarian colleagues of, or people in any way associated with, these not so gentle men dare to defy the wall of intimidation they obviously try to erect around themselves, and expose not episodes of heretical preaching and behaviour (which are richly documented for countless priests and prelates), but single episodes of homosexual behaviour without regard for the offender being a priest, a Monsignor, a Bishop, a Cardinal or, as it is perfectly legitimate to suspect, the Pope himself.
We need courageous priests to get rid of at least the worst of this filth.
I understand it is not easy, but souls are at stake.
