Is there a point to all this word salad, Alex? I’m getting tired of your nonsense. Last time I looked, pedophilia was being committed by clergy, not gay people, and there didn’t seem to be an awful lot of folks around who felt energized and motivated to fuck kids(theirs or other people’s) as a consequence of watching a Mardi Gras parade.
Put up or shut up. Cheers.
Did you miss the bit where I said there was no reason to suppose homosexuality leads to paedophilia? I’ve never suggested homosexuals are more likely to be paedophiles than heterosexuals. What I am suggesting is that the sort of culture which permits, celebrates and normalises homosexuality is more likely to eventually permit, celebrate and normalise paedophilia. I guess that was the point of the ‘word salad’.
As for your gratuitous remarks about the clergy, I hate to break it to you but “clergy” and “gay people” are not mutually exclusive categories.
As I understand it, the vast majority of clerical sex abuse cases do not involve prepubescent children. They involve adolescents.
Therefore we’re not talking about paedophilia. We’re talking about ephebophilia.
Not all homosexuals are ephebophiles.
Not all ephebophiles are homosexuals.
However, as I understand it, the vast majority of clerical sex abuse cases involve adolescent boys.
Therefore we’re talking about homosexual ephebophilia.
Therefore it is legitimate to link the clerical sex abuse scandals with homosexuality.
I could be wrong, of course. If you can provide evidence that the vast majority of clerical sex abuse cases involve prepubescent children of both sexes, then I will retract what I’ve just said.
Put up and I’ll shut up. Cheers.

Oi… Alex… you do realise that it was heterosexual marriage that has led to the calls for same-sex marriage, don’t you?
You mean sort of like how the Mass led to the Black Mass?
