Proper attitude for a Catholic towards the pedophilia scandal?
#18

if you haven't read it, i posted a thread that explained the sociological basis for the moral panic over "pedophile priests" (most of whom are pederasts, not pedophiles).

the author is a sociologist and makes some good points not made elsewhere.  i had not realized before reading this article that only 54 priests have been convicted of pedophilia over a 52 year span in the US!!!  actually, it could be less than 54 priests; there were 54 convictions.  i'm pretty sure john geoghan (sp.) was convicted on more than one count, probably others were as well.
