Although I know that many people suspect that celibacy is the source of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, abuse, alas, is not prevented by marriage.

Selwyn House, a prestigious private school in Montreal, has had several cases of abuse.

The newly arrived headmaster had to inform the school that one of its employees was just arrested.

Michael Kane, a computer technician and audio-visual co-ordinator since 2000, was arrested Wednesday in Chateauguay and arraigned in Valleyfield on one count of sexual interference with a minor.


Kane, 40, is married and has two young children. The victim is allegedly a friend of his family.

The problem is not celibacy, but male sexuality, and there is no cure for that.
