Alfred Kinsey justified pedophilia, claiming that "the current hysteria over sex offenders" was detrimental to child development

Hey, you know what else is detrmiental to child development?

I'm assuming there's more to back up the claim that Kinsey justified pedophilia - right or wrong though the thought about hysteria might be, that bit of quote doesn't exactly say "hey, pedophilia ain't so bad!"

In every country and every age, the priest has been hostile to Liberty.

He's saying because it wasn't looked upon as bad then, he felt it was OK to reinstate a priest who was a pedophile.

I'm not trying to justify anything, I'm just explaining why he's saying these things.

Oh, so he's not just oddly mentioning child porn in his Christmas message, he's offering an excuse.

Happy birthday, Jesus!

Correct, he's not randomly saying "pedophilia was pretty chill in the 70s." He's saying "I gave my buddy a job despite his pedophilia because it was pretty chill in the 70s."

The Pope really has no effect on American Catholics.

Yeah, that struck me rather odd, too.

Seriously. Wow. Just...I...that...

Wooooooooooow.

John Paul II was a Saint.

Those are all just vicious lies.

Instead, the letter emphasizes the church's right to handle all child-abuse allegations and determine punishments in house rather than hand that power to civil authorities.
Yeah, there's a brilliant idea.

Fucking hell. Everyone involved in this cover-up needs to be in jail. NOW.

Just about everything was pretty chill in the '70s, but I do not remember the Church looking the other way on those many other social/sexual issues. In fact, quite the contrary. Has the Vatican cited Kinsey's work as reason to tolerate other sexual deviance in their eyes, or just this?

Anyway, let's enjoy some entertainment, shall we?

YouTube - Acrobats strip for Pope Benedict XVI, perform topless in Vatican

Er, that was awkward.
