Subject: RE: BS: Clerical abuse of kids: More Revelations
I think we're confusing sexual frustration due to enforced celibacy and rampant paedophilia.

I had a friend who was the daughter of a very respected Methodist minister. Her parents seemed happy, but for years during her childhood her father had secretly sexually abused her.

I think paedophiles find that being scoutmasters, choirmasters, youth sports coaches, orphanage workers, priests, charity workers in disaster areas abroad etc gives them easy access to vulnerable children.

Once convicted, I wouldn't ever release them again. They present a danger well into their old-age.
