The Question Club
Let's say that someone you know, like a close friend, relative, etc., admitted to you that they were a pedophile, but never acted on it. For the purpose of the example, let's assume they are telling the truth. would you think differently of that person?|
Would you trust them around other children you two may know, or your own kids? (edit; by "trust" I mean, interacting with your kids at all, not necessarily with them being alone with them)
(Note: I'm not a pedophile, but I keep reading these articles about the pope and him condemning pedophilia, and everyone saying pedophiles should burn, so I figured a moral challenge was in order)
EDIT: Perhaps I should rephrase the question to, would you no longer associate with that person if they admitted to you that they were a pedophile with no intent or history of harming children? Let's say there are no children around.
I'll be honest and say that I'd feel very weird about being around that person at all, and I have no kids. I'm just wondering what other people would think
