The head of the influential Catholic League says that the priest who allegedly sexually abused 200 deaf boys in Wisconsin did not engage in pedophilia because 'the vast majority of the victims [were] post-pubescent."
Bill Donohue made the argument during a raucous debate on Larry King Live Tuesday night, during which he repeatedly pointed the finger to homosexuality -- rather than pedophilia -- as the cause of the church's sex abuse problems.
"Youâ€™ve got to get your facts straight," Donohue said, addressing sex abuse victim Thomas Roberts. "Iâ€™m sorry. If Iâ€™m the only one thatâ€™s going to deal with facts tonight then that'll be it. The vast majority of the victims are post-pubescent. Thatâ€™s not pedophilia, buddy. Thatâ€™s homosexuality."

a child in most states is defined as someone under the age of 18...a child molester can be what people thing, such as some 40 year old diddling with a 5 year old, or a 19 year old banging a 15 year old..the law barely defines differently here and both will get the title.
Whatever, a crime is stil a crime..you touched someone underage...look, fantasize, do whatever you want..but once you physically touch someone underage, thats when you have done wrong.
