why are you correcting this.
It is still a 12 or 13 year old boy/girl.
They do not have the insight nor ability to escape such a situation should it arise (especially if they are deaf)
To me, that is pedophilia. Pedo means kids...12 and 13 year olds are KIDS in my book.
either way, the church and priests responsible should be burned at the stake for these disgusting acts.
Pedophilia (or paedophilia) is a psychological disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a sexual preference for prepubescent children.[
Ephebophilia is the sexual preference of adults for mid-to-late adolescents, generally ages 15 to 19.
See, if the kids were post-pubescent - 12 or 13, according to Bill - then it's not pedophilia anymore, it is homosexuality. And that means it's not the fault of the church, it is the fault of Gays.

The Characteristics of Pedophilia According to the DSM-IV definition, pedophilia involves sexual activity by and adult with a prepubescent child. Some individuals prefer females, usually 8- to 10-years-old. Those attracted to males usually prefer slightly older children. Some prefer both sexes. While some are sexually attracted only to children, others also are sometimes attracted to adults.
Diagnostic Criteria for Pedophilia
A. Over a period of at least six months, recurrent intense sexual urges and sexually arousing fantasies involving sexual activity with a prepubescent child or children.
B. The person has acted on these urges, or is markedly distressed by them.
C. The person is at least 16 years old and at least five years older than the child or children in A.
Note: This does not involve a late adolescent in an ongoing sexual relationship with a 12 or 13 year old.

On Larry King Live last night, professional overzealous defender of the Catholic Church Bill Donohue explained to Sinead O'Connor that it's not pedophilia if the victim is 12 or 13.
so following thier logic.... its not pedophilia if it is a 8 year old girl that hit puberty at 7? I see so now the church is condoning premarital relations with 8 year old girls if i use this logic to guide my choice in "women"...
