Roman Catholic Spin Machine

Here's the latest attempt to try to spin the clerical celibacy/sexal abuse scandal issue: (link). One of the particularly odd attempts at spin was this:
The Times continues to editorialize about the "pedophilia crisis," when all along it’s been a homosexual crisis. Eighty percent of the victims of priestly sexual abuse are male and most of them are post-pubescent. While homosexuality does not cause predatory behavior, and most gay priests are not molesters, most of the molesters have been gay.
Just how many sodomite priests does the "Catholic League" think that Roman Catholicism has? And why, given the secrecy that the article acknowledges, does the "Catholic League" think they have an accurate count on the molestation rate among priests? In other words, what is the claim that "most gay priests are not molesters" based on?
