Clowes demonstrates that there is a strong link between homosexuality and the sexual abuse of minors. He clearly states that celibacy is not the problem but homosexuality is.
In his paper he cites studies such as:
A study of 229 convicted child molesters published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that “eighty-six percent of [sexual] offenders against males described themselves as homosexual or bisexual.”
According to Clowes, “[t]he only way to get to the root of the problem of priestly child molestation is to ignore the smear campaign and proceed methodically.”
