Why do you conflate gay with pedophile?
Sodomy and elective abortion are the defining essences of queerness.

If you do queer, you are queer.

All of the RCC-related attacks on boys were sodomy of a male child by closted adult male queers.

Adult male queers openly advertise their attraction for boys...

The mystery here is how you and others are so easily confused about these known facts.

By strict definition, pedophile means one that is attracted to the pre-pubescent.
Popular definition sees it as applying to anything with an underage person.
Some of the priests were with pubescent boys, and claims of it being with girls are less common.
OK, so let me rephrase:

Why conflate gay with ephebephile ?

RCC closeted adult male queers sodomize boys in their charge, and a clueless guy here asks me why I believe gay men are involved as perpetrators.

Clueless guy wants to re-label it pedophilia, ignoring the important fact that the offensive activity was male-on-male sodomy, the essence of male queer behavior.

To top the mischaracterization, an anonymous worm labels my post clueless.

Word games are all these sleazy people have to offer to excuse their behavior.

Some people have truly been stupified by queer propaganda.

Would you prefer that the young Catholics be molested by heterosexuals?

I'm a catholic just because some priest too advantage of minor threw out the years doesn't mean we are all like that!! I know some other religions think its acceptable to do this. I am not saying it is right. If your look at it it's the fault of the Catholics that forbidded priest to get married all those years ago because When they died their children and wife's got their money and the leaders did not like this and banded priest getting married in those day there was no priest taking advantage of little children !!! It's very,very wrong to do so but it doesn't give ppl the right to say that my religion is wrong it is not for you to say and most are born in to the religion

Bullshit. The numbers show that priests offend less than Protestant clergy and far less than teachers.
You're a liar as usual, gaybo.

The children don't have much to fear from straight priests, just the gay priests. Unfortunately there are a lot of gay priests in the Catholic Church. Estimates run as high as 30 percent gay.

I am sure you have no such 'numbers', and the pope himself admits that the Vatican is run by a homosexual cabal.

I agree that the church doesn't condone abuse now. But they have lobbied the state government that makes it hard for alterboys like me to get justice. They didn't care about us and how much pain they have cause our families.

You should know better than to dare me to post sources:

In 1990, the Freedom from Religion Foundation issued a study on pedophilia by clergy. At that time, two clergy per week were being arrested in North America for sex crimes against children. Fifty-eight percent of them were Protestant.

Data Shed Light on Child Sexual Abuse by Protestant Clergy
http://www.nytimes.com/2007/06/16/us/16protes...

Insurance companies, child advocacy groups and religion scholars say there is no evidence that Catholic clergy are more likely to be involved in sexual misconduct than other clergy or professionals. Yet ongoing civil litigation of decades-old cases against a church with deep pockets keeps the Catholic Church in the headlines.

“There is no plausible evidence that Catholic priests are gangs of sexual predators, as they are being portrayed,” said Pennsylvania State University Prof. Philip Jenkins, eminent religion and history scholar, and a non-Catholic who’s studied the church’s abuse problems for 20 years.

Jenkins said there has been no formal study comparing denominations for rates of child abuse. However, insurers have been assessing the risks since they began offering riders on liability policies in the 1980s. Two of the largest insurers report no higher risks in covering Catholic churches than Protestant denominations.

Wisconsin-based Church Mutual Insurance Co. has 100,000 client churches and has seen a steady filing of about five sexual molestation cases a week for more than a decade, even though its client base has grown.

“It would be incorrect to call it a Catholic problem,” said Church Mutual’s risk control manager, Rick Schaber.“We do not see one denomination above another. It’s equal. It’s also equal among large metropolitan churches and small rural churches.”
