    Denying reality is not the way for the Church to move forward.
    I think there is so much more that needs to be understood about paedophilia, let alone many other mental disorders. I don't think the Cardinal was opining that the act itself is not a crime, but more that the paedophile cannot control his/her instinct to be sexually aroused by children. And from what I know, the latter is close to the truth, I think.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    It's not as if child molesting priests are a thing of this century. Children were regularly abused back in the 1500, 1600s, 1700s too. It just didn't get public view of was publicly acknowledged. It was just "life".

    What a novel idea.
    This thread has nothing to do with that.Its about a priest who in many peoples opinion is making excuses for child molesters.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Easy analysis here. While they were busy judging others, their closets opened, and their skeletons fell out.

    Yeah, pedophilia isn't a crime, but child molestation is. I figure some people become pedophiles as a result of life experiences, such as being molested themselves at a young age, and some people may even be born "wired" that way.

    Frankly, I feel sorry for pedophiles. I can't imagine what kind of hell it must be to live with those kind of urges. Don't get me wrong, the moment they act on those urges they lose my sympathy.

    Medical help should be free and readily available to pedophiles who seek assistance in controlling their urges. And we shouldn't judge people who actually take the proactive measures to seek treatment.

    But once you have shown you are willing to molest children you MUST be removed from society.

    LOL! Ahhh, here's a wild guess. If the Church is shucking and jiving as much you claim everyone else is, what's the point of Church?
