Pedophiles stigmatized for sexual orientation?

What kind of a world are we living in? Read this article & maybe you can tell me. What I find appalling is not that I think there is much chance that they'll get what they want, but that they feel entitled to 'start a conversation' on this issue. Was this bound to happen in a society that increasingly thinks there is no absolute rights and wrongs, but everything depends on the situation - in other words moral relativism?

While you're thinking, please remember to pray for all victims of pedophilia ... and all who struggle with the  temptations of this grave moral evil.

    In a word, yes.

  2. What a fire this article started when I reposted it to my own FB page.

    I'll be writing a follow-up blog entry all about it. Thanks for this, though. I'll be sure to direct folks back here if they want to complain some more. ;) Ha ha!

    perhaps you'll let me know how to to find you on facebook so I can see the 'fire' for myself!

  4. I'm not entirely sure how to look you up, to be honest. I searched "Fr. Levi" and "The Way Out There" in addition to tagging Ireland. Ha ha. No luck. E-mail?

    And the thread was a message sent back and forth because the person (a relative of mine) was too embarrassed to openly criticize the article for fear of being labelled a pedophile, herself.

    And yes, it was a WOMAN (herself a mother, no less!) who leapt to this relativistic stance's defense. Ugh - my heart.
