    I guess he doesn't think it was legitimate rape.

    The conversation took an interesting turn, however, when the editor asked about the 78-year-old's work with sexual abuse perpetrators.

    "People have this picture in their minds of a person planning to — a psychopath," Groeschel said. "But that’s not the case. Suppose you have a man having a nervous breakdown, and a youngster comes after him. A lot of the cases, the youngster — 14, 16, 18 — is the seducer."

    Pressed for clarification, the New York State-based religious leader explained that kids looking for father figures might be drawn to priests to fill an emotional hole in their lives.

    Furthermore, Groeschel expressed a belief that most of these "relationships" are heterosexual in nature, and that historically sexual relationships between men and boys have not been thought of as crimes.

    "If you go back 10 or 15 years ago with different sexual difficulties — except for rape or violence — it was very rarely brought as a civil crime. Nobody thought of it that way... And I’m inclined to think, on [a priest's] first offense, they should not go to jail because their intention was not committing a crime."

    In the mans defense he is a brain injury survivor.


    He is not in his right mind.

    I think the church should not have him performing anhy church duties

    I love he suggests it's only 18 or 16 year olds getting molested when a lot of them are 12 or 10 or even less
