Bill Donohue says Priests were not Pedophiles

God Damn it... go to 7 minutes to get to meat of the matter.

Well, he's correct. The difference between being attracted to prepubescent children and young people who have gone through puberty is as large as the difference between being attracted to men or women. Hardly semantics.

That being said, you're right that it's STILL RAPE and there is NO defense for it! So yeah, congrats to Donahue, they're NOT pedophiles, they're hebephiles. Big fucking whoop. I used the right term, happy now?

Disgusting.

Hebephiles... I'm glad you had the link! I might have mistook it for a Jewish thing. I'll hold him, you punch him Galen.

Stats that show he was wrong about the age of the boys. Not by much, but if we are going to split hairs...
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. Link

Yeah Gaytor, I was rolling with the semantic thing, but the fact still remains that a LARGE percentage of those priests did molest prepubescent boys and I don't really CARE what type of sexual attraction they had. I don't give a damn what anybody is attracted to, but it tends to grab my attention if your attractions (no matter what they are) start manifesting as RAPE! I mean, hey, I'm sure I'm not alone in the fact that I've sat and watched the high school cheerleaders on ESPN2 for less-than-innocent reasons, but then I think that I can pretty much be forgiven for that seeing as how I'm not FUCKING RAPING high school cheerleaders like some brutish asshole!

You have a sick/unusual attraction, ok, no problem. I mean, people can't HELP what they're attracted to, right? But what everybody CAN help is the actions they take! And it is the ACTIONS of those priests (not their attractions) that we civilized people take issue with!

In summation: Donahue can suck my balls.
