AIDS within the priesthood

HIV-infected priests
In 2000 it was reported that in the USA the annual death rate from AIDS in Kansas and Missouri was 7 times that of the general population in the period 1987-99. At least 300 Catholic priests had died of AIDS since the mid-1980s, namely 4 times the rate of the general population. The death of a bishop in Minnesota had been disguised as a non-AIDS related disease and his identity had been concealed.
Religious orders need to acknowledge that there is a problem relating to the sexual practices of their priests.
Human nature is human nature. Priests are human. The behaviour of celibate priests might be expected to mirror that of the general population.
