africans also don’t believe AIDS exist.
Then it is my opinion that Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier should be repeatedly gang raped by a herd of bull elephants with these same mental disorders. Then again, he may enjoy it...
sick freak will burn in hell
Pedophilia is an illness, not a crime, as long as the pedophile doesn’t act on his desires.
The minute he touches a child, he’s a criminal, and should be punished severely.
most of the scandal in the Catholic Church isn’t really about pedophilia. It’s gotten that tag in the media for a reason; to take away from the fact that it’s really homo priests wanting to have sex with teenage boys. “Pedophilia” conjures up images of creepy old men molesting little girls, which is not what the bulk of the scandal is about, and the media knows it.
In any group you’ll find the occasional fool with big mouth. The Catholic church is no different in this respect from the Fraternal Order of Police or the Hunting editors for Outdoor Life.
Of course that fact won’t slow down the Catholic bashers who will take the cardinals asinine statement and broad brush his OPINION onto the backs of the entire Clergy.
Now that they’ve all but won the fight over same-sex “marriage,” will the legalization of pedophilia be the next great liberal cause?
First it was a sin, which man of his own free will chooses to commit or to resist. Then it becomes an illness or disorder in which the perpetrator is himself a victim. Then it becomes a lifestyle which must be tolerated and respected by all others. We’re halfway there.
Being really, really stupid is not a crime either, nor, apparently, an obstacle to cardinalship either.
In the New, Improved South Africa it’s not a crime to rape a child. In fact the latest statistics indicate that in less than every 30 seconds a child under 12 is raped.
Sodomy and pedophilia is rampant in the new nation run by the communist blacks.
Gee! One hopes affirmative action hasn’t effected the Catholic Church.
Napier said he knew of at least two priests who became pedophiles after they were abused as children.
"Now don't tell me that those people are criminally responsible like somebody who chooses to do something like that. I don't think you can really take the position and say that person deserves to be punished. He was himself damaged."
So if someone else's response to childhood abuse is to become a serial killer of those who remind him of the abuser, is that murderous conduct not a crime? Does the same logic apply?
So far, everyone has read his statement incorrectly.
He’s saying that in those people that become peds after they themselves were raped, it’s a disorder. You should know that a significant number of boys that are raped become themselves child rapists. They were not born that way. That is the second half of the horror of it all - the poor victim himself becomes a victimizer. Stopping that person is absolutely required, but saying he’s just a perv isn’t enough - he got screwed up like a perverted PTSD.
Read what he’s saying, as if he were not an ignorant just blabbing, like you.
Wanna bet they were abused by Catholic priests...Or a cardinal...
Birds of a feather flock together...
“The Church” deals with “SIN”. Society defines “crime”
This is the next step towards turning it into a sexual orientation.
I cannot believe that the Creator is going to give much time for this excuse making by those that claim they speak for Him. Christ did say things would become worse than Sodom and Gomorrah ... we should be filled with ‘pride’!!! (NOT)
If it is an illness, I seriously doubt that it is curable. If a cure exists, it might exist as something like a bullet to the head.
