The Rev. Neil Doherty isn’t a pedophile, he’s a pederast! These crimes against our children aren’t going to stop until we get a better grasp on what drives these perverts to molest. Profiling isn’t a bad thing, especially when it comes to children’s safety.
Does heterosexuality necessarily drive one to molest children? No, as I am sure homosexuality does not. However, the reality is Neil Doherty targeted post-pubescent boys, not girls, as did 82 percent of all the known abuses, according to the John Jay study. As institutions develop methods to identify potential molesters, it’s important all persons should fall under deeper scrutiny and looking at one’s sexual orientation should be on the table.
