The Catholic League says the ongoing Church abuse scandal is a homosexual crisis.

President Bill Donohoe singles out The New York Times for allegedly getting the story wrong saying, "The Times continues to editorialize about the pedophilia crisis while all along it's been a homosexual crisis."

Donohoe took out an ad in the op-ed section of The New York Times Tuesday to broadcast his anti-gay message.

In the ad he says that the Times has "teamed up" with a "radical lawyer" to weaken the Church authority and whose only agenda is women's ordination, abortion and gay marriage.

He slams the Survivors' Network of those Abused by Priests as a "professional victims' group," and says the Times is being "driven mad."

Donohoe defends the Church handling of the most recent abuse case involving Fr Lawrence Murphy in Wisconisn and appears to blame the victims' families for the failure to investigate.

He also refers to Murphy's "apparently predatory behavior."
