Re “The Catholic Church Must Listen to Victims” (Op-Ed, Feb. 22):
Mark Joseph Williams mentions something so simple that many believe will help end the sexual atrocities committed by clergymen. The problem of clerical sex abuse has more to do with the unconscionable celibacy law and nothing to do with sexual orientation.
We are not created to live a life of complete solitude without human interaction. We were made to comfort one another in every aspect of life’s journey in intimate as well as social situations. Doesn’t the Bible quote God saying “It is not good for man to live alone”? Didn’t God create Eve for that very reason?
Pope Francis: Please, for the sake of all, end celibacy! How can you expect priests to minister to the community without a full understanding of humanity and with such an unhealthy removal from human contact?
As a cradle Catholic, I believe that we are made in the image and likeness of God, and the very belief in God as three persons in one (the Trinity) might be an example of what we should be emulating, not a solitary existence.

The Catholic Church’s victims will get little justice because they have little power. It should be clear by now that this deeply conservative institution will purge few abusers and enablers because it doesn’t have to.
But justice will come if victims mobilize the laity’s only power: money. Without it, the bishops can’t even pay their dry-cleaning bills.
Only a widespread boycott of the collection basket will fill the hierarchy with enough fear to force action. Effectively threaten an institution at its most vulnerable point, and it will change.

To the Editor:
“The Church Is Breaking People’s Hearts,” by Frank Bruni (column, Feb. 20), does a good job chronicling the horrible abuse that Shelly Fitzgerald and her father, Pat Fitzgerald, have suffered from the Catholic school where one was employed and one volunteered. Unfortunately, the problem is not limited to them.
New Ways Ministry has chronicled the stories of more than 85 church employees since 2007 who have had employment disputes with Catholic institutions because of L.G.B.T. issues. (Not all were fired. Some had contracts revoked, some were forced to resign, some resigned because the abuse was too much to bear.) These are only the stories that have become public in the media. Our office receives many more calls from people who choose not to go public.
American bishops and church leaders can easily follow the example of the German bishops, whose conference issued a policy in 2015 that church employees who were in same-sex relationships, civil unions and marriages would not be fired.
Church teaching on human dignity, freedom of conscience and on the importance of work supports such a policy. There is no theological reason for the American bishops not to do likewise.
