“The sexual activity (past or present) of bishops and superiors is one of the most powerful elements that condition them to cover up the crimes of their subordinates. They need not have abused children themselves, but their sexual activity is likely to be exposed if the web of secrecy ruptures.”

    Interesting take. Just because you’re not a pedophile doesn’t mean you don’t have sexual skeletons in your closet?

    Institutional Pedophilia is the systematic mistreatment of children within a social identity group (Catholics for instance), supported and enforced by the society and its institutions, solely based on the person’s membership in the social identity group.

  3. Sinjin Smythe Says:

    Institutional Pedophilia creates a system of invisible barriers limiting children based on their membership in social identity groups (Muslim female children) . The barriers are only invisible to those “seemingly” unaffected by it.

    Take a moment and Google “___fill in the blank___ sexual abuse” and tell me:

    Do you really think it is just a few bad eggs, religious perverts that is, or do you think maybe (and I realize this is a big maybe), maybe religion isn’t about power, money, control at all. Maybe it is really the confidence trick of the pervert.

    I have said before that the Catholic Church is a false front for institutionalized pedophilia. I think before you cast this idea off if you will just examine the volumes of reported incidence it becomes inescapable: Religion itself is a deviant sexual cover-up.

    Covert forms of pedophilia may be secret, hidden and not openly practiced, or so subtle that they are not readily obvious, even to the intended target.

    The child targeted with covert pedophilia may not even realize that an oppressive act has occurred until after the fact, nor be aware of who committed the act.

    Often, targets of covert forms of pedophilia may second guess themselves and their reactions to covert pedophilia.

    Religion is the confidence trick of pedophiles.
