“The prevalence of pedophilia among [homosexual people] is no higher than among general population.”
Even the Roman Catholic Church made that claim in their VIRTUS videos for churh staff/teacher training.
I have ‘well educated’ friends who think the whole thing is genetic although there is no scientific basis for this claim.
It’s an amazing lesson in how people will not look at something honestly if it makes them look like a bigot.
If being homosexual is genetic, we ought to be able to eradicate that gene from the population shortly. Wonder how homosexuals would like that?
I went to VIRTUS training a decade or so ago and the instructor stated that the abuse scandal had nothing to do with homosexuality. I couldn’t let that false statement go unchecked so I raised my hand and rebut her claim with the Church’s own statistics that were at that time recently released - 80-something percent of the abuses were same sex, therefore by definition they were predominantly homosexual. And then I shared with the group that 1 or 2 or 3 percent of the population (homosexual) accounts for 40 something percent of all abuse cases nationwide and asked why would the VIRTUS class be sugar-coating this?
