I heard this crap growing up too ...

One of the things I find fascinating in the Church's response to the allegations of abuse in PA dioceses is the attempt by some in the Church to claim the abusers are abusing because they are gay.  It is fascinating and sad, and relies on horrendous bias against gay people.  The post from one priest below is featured at the National Catholic Register's best blogs list:
And let’s be clear.  This scandal is about HOMOSEXUALITY. 
Some of these homosexual predators are, I think, possessed.   Think about it.  If you know anything about demonic activity, and this is something that lay people should not get too involved with, then you know that certain demons specialize in certain kinds of sins.  They will attach themselves like spiritual lampreys to the souls of people who commit them and also to the places where the sins were committed.  Once a demon gets hold, they claim the right to be there, until the layers of their connection are broken one by one.  That’s what exorcism rites do: they break the legalistic claims of the Enemy to be there.
Homosexual sins are particularly grave and their demonic force is concomitantly vile.  And these sins also involve the young or those who are subject to the authority or power of the predator.  Millstones are not enough.   If you wonder about the Lord and capital punishment, HE spoke of the millstone before the Church did.
That’s the supernatural side.  There is also the natural side.  It seems to me that men with these strong disordered inclinations don’t… how to put this… act like other men.  They think differently, they work out differences differently.  I know, I know.  But that’s my sense of things.  It’s hard to articulate.
I think Satan and demons do exist but they speak here through the blogger and others who think like him.

DISCLAIMER:  I am trans, not gay.  If you don't know the difference: gay is who you like, trans is who you are :)  The Church thinks we (trans people) are disordered too, but at least we aren't getting blamed for this.
