Blame Brent Corrigan + Hawaii Speedo Student For Church Pedophile Scandal

With so much invasion of eroticism, sometimes it’s not easy to stay celibate or to respect children. If on television and on the Internet and in so many media outlets there is pornography, it is very difficult to stay pure and chaste. Obviously when there is generalized sexual freedom it’s more likely there could be cases of pedophilia.
