Do gay men tend to be more likely to be pedophiles?

Christian statistics say that Gay men make up a huge percentage of molestation cases against children. I'm gay, I don't find children the least bit attractive. Why do Christians have to hit so low? Statistics are not always fact, but many Christians rely on them like they are! I'm a Christian, but I don't use questionable facts to make a point against an already struggling minority. It's just bothers me.

    yes being a pedophile is the same thing as homosexuality because it is a sin. And all sin is sin, there is no measure of how big a sin is because sin is sin and no matter what form of sin is being done, it is it's own self therefore sin is sin that comes in many forms. That is where the Judge NOT theme comes into play. No matter what type of sin you went through others had been through other types of sin and it is not for us to judge against them because you did sin as well. The world has made sin to be about levels but there is no level of sin, sin is sin and it has no levels. All the things you do as sin is very evil. For instance, stealing something is the same thing as coveting someone's stuff because of jealousy(Which is a sin).

    Pedophilia is a sexual attraction to children, it's a completely separate issue/phenomenon from homosexuality. The exact same percentage of pedophiles are gay as the percentage of gay people in the general population (5-10%, depending on who you believe).

    Do gay men tend to be more likely to be pedophiles?

    Christian statistics say that Gay men make up a huge percentage of molestation cases against children

    Pedophilia and Homosexually are two different things. The truth is most child molesters and those who are into Child pornography are Heterosexual men not gay men. Most of these Heterosexual men are completely straight when it comes to their adult sexual interest, but can be either be Bi Gay or straight when it comes to their sexual interest in children, most are Bisexual when it comes to their sexual interest for children. Of course there are Gay men who also have a sexual interest in children but this has to do with being a Pedophile not being Gay if being gay was the reason why little boys are sexually molested then all little girls who are sexually molested would be so because most men are Heterosexual and not Gay.

    Homosexuals only make up 7% of pedophilia cases. Also, most men who molest boys are interested in the feminine qualities of the boys and are straight. Most of us think that a child molester is a rather slimy individual( a stranger in town, sitting in his car near a schoolyard, luring children with candy. Our findings reveal that, on the contrary, the child molester is not a stranger, but is someone we know well. He often is a man we trust, a man our children trust. . . . As a rule, he is married and has children of his own whom he usually does not molest. He is almost always a well‑respected, even loved, member of his community. He is often an active Christian who is involved in his church.

    I think the only "christians" that cite those "facts" are ones with a political agenda--although pedophilia has been associated with homosexuality for a LONG time. Unfortunately pederasty is still a "heritage" of male homosexuality and probably will stick around for a long time. However, most modern researchers find that pedophilia is mostly perpetrated by heterosexuals and wikipedia states that it appears to be more a crime of opportunity rather than orientation.

    Yes, i known many gays in the past and 90% of them loved little boys, gays are way more likely to molest, if you go after the same sex no matter what age YOU ARE GAY!!! Do priest molest because they are priest? NO it is because alot of gays tend to become priest..

    I don't really think being gay has anything to do with pedophiles.

    I think it is more likely that a man be a pedophile than a woman and because that percentage is higher there is a higher percentage of male on male molestation.

    I am not sure where they get those statistics. Reality is that most pedophiles are in fact straight and married. Sexual abuse of children occurs most often with a family member. But I am sure the people who choose to misread statistics could make a case for anything they chose.

  • NO they are not. It's a fact that 95% of paedophiles are heterosexual males, and their victims are usually their own children. Gay men are used as smokescreen for those statistics because many pople don't want to admit the truth.
