    Default New York friar blames youngsters who ‘seduce’ priests, coaches

    Sympathy for ‘this poor guy’ Jerry Sandusky and other pedophiles? New York friar blames youngsters who ‘seduce’ priests, coaches

    Father Benedict Groeschel: ‘Suppose you have a man having a nervous breakdown, and a youngster comes after him. A lot of the cases, the youngster... is the seducer.'


    BY VICTORIA CAVALIERE / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS


    A prominent New York-based friar has sympathy for some pedophiles -- including defrocked priests and former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky -- saying they are sometimes "seduced" by their underage victims.

    Father Benedict Groeschel’s jarring comments come amid ongoing fallout from child sex abuse scandals that have rocked Penn State and, over the past decade, the Catholic Church.

    In some of these cases, children “looking for a father figure” are responsible for the relationship with someone in a position of power -- like a coach or clergy member, Groeschel told the National Catholic Register.

    “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," said Groeschel, a founder of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal.

    Pressed on the point, Father Groeschel says "It's not so hard to see - a kid looking for a father and didn't have his own - and they won't be planning to get into heavy-duty sex, but almost romantic, embracing, kissing."

    The Westchester-based friar -- who maintains a prominent position in the Catholic Church, doing outreach in the Bronx and Brooklyn and appearing on a weekly religious television show -- doesn't think an adult who has a sexual relationship with a child should be punished for a first offense.

    "I'm inclined to think, on their first offense, they should not go to jail because their intention was not committing a crime."

    He also has some sympathy for Jerry Sandusky, convicted in June of 45 counts of sexual abuse of boys.

    "Here's this poor guy - Sandusky - it went on for years. Interesting: Why didn't anyone say anything?"

    Witnesses and victims didn't necessarily see the abuse as a crime, he proposed.

    "It was a moral failure, scandalous; but they didn't think of it in terms of legal things."

    Groeschel's office in Larchmont, N.Y., did not immediately respond to the Daily News' request for clarification.

    So a second victim of a pedophile has more rights to see his abuser brought to justice than a first victim. That's interesting.

    I think the thing that disgusts me the most about this is that it makes me wonder what he's hiding and who he's covering up for.

    No words. I hope there is a hell so this old fuck can roast in it for eternity.
