It turns out that he spent his whole career ferociously opposing the rights of homosexuals and making advances on his male subordinates. One of those was public, the other was not.
If you want all the details, Mark Turner has a great write up over at the Friendly Atheist.
I don’t know how a human can lack empathy to that degree. How can he not put himself in their shoes? When the dogmas of religion supplant empathy, that’s where true evil lies.
