That is simply not true. The percentage of priests accused of rape is 1.8%. The average percentage of pedophiles in general population is 4%<quoted text>
Pedophilia is more of a problem in cultures where there are many taboos and sexual repression. Due to the nature of American culture, we produce pedophiles and rapists. Repression breeds obsession. You need look no farther than the Catholic Priesthood to see that in action.
Not to mention pedophiles seek out the church for two reasons. 1) Because being an adult not in an adult sexual relationship raises no red flags. and 2) It gives them better opportunities to abuse. Pedophiles are opportunistic abusers. It is why the number one profession with the highest number of pedophiles is teachers. It has nothing to do with repression. Someone is a pedophile long, long before adulthood. Science believes pedophiles are either born that way or abused into becoming that way for the vast majority of cases. In some cases there simply is no answer but that predilection is established well before an adult
But there is no way a culture where children think it is ok for a stranger to be naked around them would not aid a pedophiles efforts. Many pedophiles try to confuse their victim into being a "willing" participant.<quoted text>
Children are vulnerable when they aren't well supervised. It doesn't matter if they are naked to a predator. They are looking for easy prey, not naked prey. They'll get them naked after they catch them, so that's not a big deal from their perspective.
There just is no reason for it. What possible good outweighs the potential dangers in your mind? Especially when wahtever good could be taught in other ways?
