akenaton BS: Rapist Catholic Priests (51* d) RE: BS: Rapist Catholic Priests 20 Oct 17


Another tea break.

The problem as DMcG often says is "in the phraseology."
Paedophilia and Abuse of Minors are often conflated, in the Priest abuse scandals, there were almost no attacks on infants or pre pubescent children and one of the studies done, it may have been the John Jay report, stated that the rates of real paedophilia amongst priests was on a par or slightly less than in the general public.

This is from memory and I would need to check back to name the sources, however I cannot be arsed doing so, therefore you will have to verify it for yourselves.

Certainly Dave the gnome seems to be correct in stating that the rates of sexual assault on minors in general is hugely over represented amongst male homosexuals/Catholic priests.
