I'm stuck on this Donohue (Bill Donohue represents the Catholic League) stating that the Priests weren't Pedophiles. He claims that the majority of the victims were post pubescent and puts up a stink about the term Pedophile. Vid Link
(go to 7 mins and start there.) If his claim were true, his obtuse observation would be correct that they are not pedophiles. As Galen points out they are hebephiles
. He refers to them as homosexuals but it's not accurate. They would still be rapists. So instead of being just pedophiles you are made up of rapist and pedophiles. Happy now Bill?
But it's worse for Donohue. He claims that the "majority of the victims were post-Pubescent". Under my states' law that's 14 when the designation changes from child to young adult. Guess what Bill, there are stats available to the public to check you out. The John Jay College of Criminal Justice did a study in 2002. At that time they found 10,667 victims. 50.9% of them were between 11-14 years of age. Full Paragraph and Study link
". The largest group of alleged victims (50.9%) was between the ages of 11 and 14, 27.3% were 15-17, 16% were 8-10 and nearly 6% were under age 7. Overall, 81% of victims were male and 19% female. Male victims tended to be older than female victims. Over 40% of all victims were males between the ages of 11 and 14."
This man has earned an ass kicking. He spreads lies, blames victims, blames homosexuality and all for a paycheck. I suggest you go check out this study. It's from 2002 and they had spent over 500,000,000 on the settlements. I'd argue that these numbers are much larger from those whom are dead and or would never talk about it. Additionally, this doesn't include the Ryan Report, the deaf kids, everything coming out in Europe now. I can only pray for the complete fall of the Catholic Church and the Catholic League..
