I was discussing the Catholic priest abuse scandal with someone and I had a thought. she had just seen someone say in a BG that there were no priests because they were all busy chasing little boys.
It's okay to relentlessly mock and berate all priests as being being pedophiles and child abusers. I've seen as much, anywhere you turn people make fun of them. I even had a guild member do so recently. But the fact that nearly all the priests in question molested little boys, and were homosexuals most likely isn't mocked nearly as much. Is it ok to say all priests are child molesters, but not all gay men are sexual predators towards children? Can't one just as easily joke that gay men shouldn't be trusted around little boys as can priests, based off of the same stories?
I am not saying they are, of course, I am merely wondering if there's a double standard at work here. We can publicly mock priests, but in any public discussion, you'd be branded a hateful homophobe for using the exact same scandal to say all gays are child predators.
