don't be confused

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 17, 2010

Janice Sevre-Duszynska, who identifies herself as a "Roman Catholic womanpriest," has chastised the Vatican in an op-ed column written for the Lexington (Kentucky) Herald-Leader. The title encapsulates her demand: "Don't equate women priests with pedophiles."

Actually I agree with her (or at least with that short statement of her argument-- which, I confess, is all that I read). There are very distinct differences between pedophiles and female Catholic priests. Offhand I can think of two:

  1. Nobody ever writes a newspaper column identifying himself as a pedophile.
  2. Pedophiles exist.
