Interesting you guys bring up the topic because I've never made the connection of the similarities between CSA and coming out, except for the obvious secretiveness some of us are finally able to jettison. Do they give Shame merit badges? ;-)

In particular, never made the church connection, except Westboro, RCC et al are more overt about the gay issue. Same animal tho...denial, vilification, etc.

@1life: Excellent post. Thanks!
