Church confusion

To the Editor:

Having been raised in Catholic schools, I believe there is much good in the doctrines.

However, I fail to understand why St. Elizabeth Ann Seton believes that it cannot tolerate a Boy Scout who is gay when the Catholic Church’s priests have been molesting young parishioners for decades and were provided cover by the higher echelons of the Church.

What the priests were doing seems far more malignant than a young Boy Scout who is bothering no one and trying to better himself through scouting.
