Here’s an exercise to try at home: 1) Allow your mind to be thoroughly poisoned by religion. 2) Defend child rapists AND blame the kids for getting raped. 3) Hear God’s voice in your head praising your moral superiority.
From full article at HuffPost:
Father Benedict Groeschel, of the conservative Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, said that teens act as seducers in some sexual abuse cases involving priests.
“People have this picture in their minds of a person planning to — a psychopath,” Groeschel said. “But that’s not the case. Suppose you have a man having a nervous breakdown, and a youngster comes after him. A lot of the cases, the youngster — 14, 16, 18 — is the seducer.”
Pressed for clarification, the New York State-based religious leader explained that kids looking for father figures might be drawn to priests to fill an emotional hole in their lives.
In the interview, he also suggests a man raping a child should not be considered a crime, if the kid is a boy.
