I remember when this book came out, this priest was treated and viewed as a nut. From Culture and Family, "We Told You So: The Homosexual Network Twenty Years Later:"

The year was 1982; the book was The Homosexual Network: Private Lives and Public Policy. The author was Enrique Rueda, a Catholic priest then in the diocese of Rochester, New York. The book had 522 footnoted pages of text, with another 160 pages of appendices and indexes. It not only analyzed the ideology of homosexuality, but it documented the spread of that ideology through religious organizations, including the Catholic Church, and traced the funding of it.

If you had read that book, you would not have been surprised by the revelations that have been coming out of Boston in the recent trial of Fr. Geoghan, on whose behalf the Archdiocese of Boston by 1998 had settled 50 pederasty cases while another 84 were pending.
