Former Pope Benedict blames Catholic Church sex abuse crisis on 1960s sexual revolution and 'collapse in morality'

Former Pope Benedict has blamed the Catholic Church’s sexual abuse scandal on the effects of the sexual revolution of the 1960s.

The 91-year-old said a move away from absolute views of right and wrong towards a world where 'there could only be relative moral judgments' has caused a general collapse in morality that had also infected the priesthood.

He also bemoaned the fact that seminaries had an openly gay culture and thus failed to train priests properly.
