A new report blames opportunity and cultural change — but a pedophilia expert says it’s much more complicated
The researchers at John Jay College of Criminal Justice attribute the uptick to “opportunity” and, as Religion News put it, ”emotionally ill-equipped priests” who “lost their way in the social cataclysm of the sexual revolution.” Opportunity and cultural change are responsible for the sexual abuse of children, really? That might seem to imply some unsavory and disheartening things about human sexuality. Next they’re gonna tell me these priests weren’t actually pedophiles!
Well, actually, that’s exactly what the researchers concluded in the report, which was commissioned by U.S. Roman Catholic bishops.
