We like to keep up with local media coverage on LGBTQ issues, but things occasionally slip by us.
The Tribune Review ran a little AP piece on world condemnation of a Papal comment linking homosexuality and pedophilia.
“Many psychologists and psychiatrists have demonstrated that there is no relation between celibacy and pedophilia,” the Italian cardinal said. “But many others have demonstrated, I have been told recently, that there is a relation between homosexuality and pedophilia. That is true. That is the problem.”
The Vatican backed away from that winner of a comment, but I'm curious why the Trib ran this. Overall, the article condemns this attitude, but there seems to be a distinct trend in the Trib — they run content that is anti-gay such as Pat Buchanan's column alongside local interest pieces about lesbian teenagers saving the world with food drives or some such thing. So I can't help but wonder which editorial instinct ran with this piece — the part that wanted to get out the homosexuality/pedophilia story or the part that condemns it? You never know.
