In a letter to Pope Francis, two Cardinals, Raymond Leo Burke of the United States, and Walter Brandmueller of Germany wrote that the homosexual agenda has spread throughout the Catholic church and is to blame for the string of sexual abuse that was committed by Catholic priests, according to Daily Mail.
This deflection is a reactionary response to Pope Francis rightfully telling the Catholic clergy that as religious leaders, they are to serve the people, not let their positions in authority engulf them and cause them to abuse their power like the priests that were found guilty of sexual assault. They believe that the Pope's criticism of clerical power ignores the "primary fault," which is the straying from absolute law. They referred to homosexuality as a corruption of "absolute moral law" and the "denial, by words and by acts, of the divine and natural law."
They also mentioned in the letter that the homosexual agenda has been spread throughout the Catholic church and was organized and promoted by a "climate of complicity and a conspiracy of silence." Cardinal Burke has also said that the reason why certain priests committed sexual abuse because they were feminized and confused about their sexuality as if that makes any sense.
What these two Cardinals are doing is very dangerous for LGBTQ people because some people may hear this an perpetuate the myth that gay people are pedophiles. The only people to blame for these assaults are the people who committed them. It's called personal responsibility and it's a great thing.
