The McCarrick Report and the need for new protocols (Part 1)

Abuse of minors is called pedophilia not homosexuality.


The abuse of young children is pedophilia. Abuse of an adolescent is not.


I’m a heterosexual male and I’m not attracted to teenage girls.

Abusing adolescents is mental illness not homosexuality.

Abusing due to a difference in power- like McCarrick did isn’t even normal homosexuality but is an abuse of power.

There is a segment of the Church who wants to blame the sexual abuse crisis on homosexuality.
