expert vs. expert

By Jeff (articles ) | Apr 09, 2003

Throughout the duration of the clerical scandal, the mantra of the experts has been, "In past decades, we thought pedophilia was treatable; now we know it's uncurable."

R. Karl Hanson, one of the eight experts at last weekend's Vatican symposium on pedophilia, begs to differ. He believes that pedophilia is readily treatable and that over 85 percent of treated pedophile priests will not abuse again.

Which experts do you believe?
