Obligatory celibacy could have contributed to child sex abuse in the Catholic Church, a group of Australian archbishops has admitted, becoming the first-ever Catholic institution to publicly acknowledge the potential link.

What used to be mostly voiced by the critics of the church has now been, albeit cautiously, formulated by its leaders.

“Obligatory celibacy may also have contributed to abuse in some circumstances,” concedes the report, which was released on Friday by the Truth, Justice and Healing Council, which includes the archbishops of Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Canberra and Adelaide.


The council’s conclusion is based on two years of research. Eight hearings were held, 50 witnesses’ testimonies were heard and 160,000 church documents examined.

“We’ve got to ask the question about whether celibacy was an added and an unbearable strain for some,” the council’s chief executive, Francis Sullivan, said according to The Australian.

“It doesn’t mean that celibacy needs to be eradicated — let’s not turn the church on its head — but we are saying you can’t have an honest and open discussion about the future without having an honest and open discussion about celibacy. We are placing celibacy on the table.”

The report says “psychosexual training” for priests could be enough to prevent child abuse in church.

The Australian study is in sharp contrast to US research in 2011, which found no connection between celibacy and child abuse.

"The rise in abuse cases was influenced by social factors in society generally," said the report, commissioned by the American Catholic church and carried out by the New-York based John Jay
College of Criminal Justice.

Critics then questioned if a study commissioned by the church and based on data provided by the church could actually be trusted.

The Australian branch is being overwhelmingly self-critical in its report, which focused on what clerics did wrong to let abuse happen.

Sullivan said it was important that the church “had the guts” to acknowledge it has abused its power, including in dealing with sex scandals.

“Church leaders, over many decades, seemed to turn a blind eye, either instinctively or deliberately, to the abuse happening within their diocese or religious order, protecting the institution rather than caring for the child,” the report says.

Victims of child sexual abuse are skeptical that the report can actually change the church’s attitude to the issue, citing previous difficulties in trying to attain justice.

"The redress in a lot of cases was absolutely disgraceful and very very devious, and done in such a way to exploit the vulnerability and the damage that survivors had already suffered," Nicky

Davis from the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests told ABC.

• The Catholic church funds a "study" that concludes it wasn't their fault? Hmm. I suppose that this study also shows that celibacy would never lead to, umm, normal sex with women? Or is it like the homosexual groups paying for a "study" claiming their actions are "because they were born that way?" Or the Tobacco companies funding reports, or the Drug Companies funding studies for, or the .. I guess God wants you all to let this thing go so they can get back to doing what they do best. Controlling you.

• 1st Time I've heard that child abuse relates to celebacy. It was a problem with the Anglicans (married) about 100 years ago. The vicars were defrocked & handed over to the law, which IMO was the correct & Christian way to deal with it.. Also paedophilia is just as common in the married in the laity. IMO The RC paedophilia cover up was a terrible betrayal on all fronts. A betrayal of the children, & a betrayal of their faith. RC celebacy always struck me as odd because S.Peter was married!

• Finally... They worked it out. No need to be a rocket scientist to see that a sexually deprived man will be a constant danger to others, especially someone so vulnerable as children. Russian Orthodox Church took more sensible approach - a priest MUST be married, to be a priest.

• The sex abuse crisis can be laid squarely at the feet of (Homosexual Clergy) and their (Allies) in the Church. 85 percent of the cases were homosexual priests preying on teenage boys. – regardless of how establishment types like to spin it otherwise. These Men (Clergy) if one can call them that are not men of the church they may have worked with-inn it at a point in time i guess some still do But they do there Father will the Devil. Relaxing the teaching on Celibacy I.E letting priests marry a woman would of not made much different in my point of view.

• "Celibacy could cause child abuse" This Headline is a LIE and the bishops from the Truth, Justice and Healing Council, which includes the archbishops of Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Canberra and Adelaide are APOSTATES. The bible talks about the great Apostasy that is going to happen at the END TIMES. Welll these Apostates bishops are nothing more than liars and apostates. This issue of sexual abuse began in the 20th Century with men who entered seminaries with the intension to destroy the Church from within and it helped also that rectors in Catholic seminaries were had become liberals and became careless about the kind of men they were allowing to become priests. The Church has had celibate priesthood for many many centuries it is impossible if you study history that there was no records of sexual abuse back then. The headline is a lie which is meant to deceive those who don't know Church and World History and who don't understand Church teaching of Priestly Celibacy which very closely connected with Christ since He too was celibate.

o The apostasy of the Roman Catholic Church began in 1054 (even earlier), when it separated from the true (Orthodox) Church. From then on they have promoted many untraditional and unhealthy innovations, of which the misguided abomination of mandatory priestly celibacy is merely one.

• The key words here are "could have" and "may have" contributed to abuse. It depends on the moral strength of the individual who takes up the call to celibacy. It can not be laid at the door of celibacy as a godly practise. Any sexual abberation is a breach of the vow and is the sin of the individual, not of the church.

• Real connections/circular loop: money AND power/ego AND sex AND violence/preys! without consequences!!! The worst things about these sexual abuses are not the physical injuries as much as the children's loss of innocence, fragile trust/self-esteem, cognitive dissonance, secretive Alienation("dirty" in a such a holly house)...

• Two things. (1) It takes 40 seconds of thought to arrive at this conclusion logically. (2) They took a personal recommendation from Paul in the Bible and turned it into an iron clad rule despite Paul himself stating it should not be an iron clad rule.
