Is pedophilia of Christianity?

A favorite tactic of muslim defenders is accusing the whole of Christianity of pedophilia.

An example:

“moe Says:”

“27 April, 2009 at 10:41 pm”

“the only righteous people who rape children are your church god fearing priests!! and your ignorance about islam is tremendous…”

When we define pedophilia we find:

“Main Entry: pe·do·phil·ia  “

“Pronunciation: \ˌpe-də-ˈfi-lē-ə, ˈpē-\”

“{Function: noun”

“Etymology: New Latin”

“Date: 1906”

“: sexual perversion in which children are the preferred sexual object”



“Pedophilia is a paraphilia that involves an abnormal interest in children. A paraphilia is a disorder that is characterized by recurrent intense sexual urges and sexually arousing fantasies generally involving: nonhuman objects; the suffering or humiliation of oneself or one’s partner (not merely simulated); or animals, children, or other nonconsenting persons. Pedophilia is also a psychosexual disorder in which the fantasy or actual act of engaging in sexual activity with prepubertal children is the preferred or exclusive means of achieving sexual excitement and gratification. It may be directed toward children of the same sex or children of the other sex. Some pedophiles are attracted to both boys and girls. Some are attracted only to children, while others are attracted to adults as well as to children.”



 “Pedophilia is defined by mental health professionals as a mental disorder, but the American legal system defines acting on a pedophilic urge as a criminal act.”

As we can see this type of illegal sexual perversion by definition has nothing to do with Christianity or Jesus Christ teachings. The claim of the muslim and others are not built on facts but ad-hominem attacks and rumors.

After all if these types of claims were true where is the proof from the Gospels?

Those who are in the Catholic church who practice such perversions DONOT represent Jesus Christ nor Biblical Christianity.
