Is it okay to molest little boys, according to the bible?

Why do priest generally molest little boys? Is there anywhere in the bible where it says molesting little boys isn't cool. Most people say no, cuz that's why priest do it in the first place, they say it isn't against the bible to molest boys. But seriously it's just common sense not to molest little boys, so why do they do it. I wouldn't care what the bible says. Anyways does the bible allow molestation of little boys & why not girls?

It's never okay to molest children, boys or girls. The Bible is against it. The Pastors and Preachers that molest children have fallen into a deep sin. They should be arrested and Prosecuted just like everyone else who does a crime like this.

The Bible says to stay away from Sexual immorality, which is anything aside from a married man and woman having sex. So yes, the Bible is against it.

Priests are sick in the head, and they use that cover as their innocence, because who would suspect a priest? The bible has nothing to do with molesting, and I am positive that it says nowhere in the bible that you can molest someone. Just because they're priests doesn't give them those types of rights.

Of course it's not in the bible. You need to realize that pedophiles pick jobs they'll be in authority of children, daycare, scouts, single mothers and being priests was a perfect cover since everyone trusts priests and children would be deemed liars. It is not the job, celibacy or anything else that makes a pedophile. It takes a certain kind of evil to do that and they take the jobs to help them have access.

I agree with Trinity. Men go in to the priesthood to serve God. However, some don't mind the celibacy because they weren't attracted to women anyway. The vast majority of priests are good servants of God. It's the minority that's given priesthood a tarnished name.

Bible has many bad actions, however that isn't the reason for the child molestation.

No, sinful people are everywhere. People give in to their sinful desires. That, God hates.

The Bible does not support that notion. How stupid! God is totally against that, and it should be outlawed. You should never molest boys or girls.

I think the root cause for that is the general Christian perception as if sex is bad or dirty, as if there was some "original sin", and that celibacy should be preferred. Those were the false teachings of Paul. In Catholicism it got to the extreme form that celibacy is required of the priesthood. This is an unnatural lifestyle for most people, and the suppressed pressure eventually bursts, regrettably victimizing young innocent children. The way to combat these cases is to acknowledge there is nothing dirty in sex between a married couple, that there was no such thing as "original sin", and that marriage with sex is the natural state for humans. I believe 99% of those predator priests became such because of the forced celibacy. If they had a wife to have sex with, almost none of them would become a sex offender. The problem is not with the priests; the problem is with Christianity.

Generally, I agree with this comment. It's likely your prescription won't be accepted by Catholics, but from a psychologists point of view, there is much wisdom in this. Star.

Of course the last line must be a typo because it means sin isn't in the person but the religion. I don't think you believe this.

The Talmud in Gittin 45a (and also Kidushin 56b and other places) said (my own translation from the original Aramaic): "It is not the mouse who stole. It was the hole which stole." That is, the conditions allowing for the theft are sometimes responsible, as they tempt or lure the thief. That is, if there was no hole it wouldn't be occupied by mice, and then there would be no mouse to steal the food. The problem with Christianity that I alluded to is of this type: Christianity, specifically Catholicism, creates conditions under which such sexual crimes are more prone to happen. As I was saying, without the forced celibacy almost all these priests would be happily married men, not child predators. If course the criminals are the priests, but the problem is rooted in Pauline teaching. Please interpret my comment according to these Talmudic ideas.

No. It's never okay to molest children according to any religion, or non religion. Or nature. Or biologically, it's just not okay no matter what.
