’Pedophilia doesn’t kill anyone’ but abortion does, says Rhode Island priest

’Pedophilia doesn’t kill anyone’ but abortion does, says Rhode Island priest

Rev. Richard Bucci, of Sacred Heart Church in West Warwick, defended his decision to bar 44 lawmakers (who voted in favor of the Reproductive Privacy Act) by saying ’pedophilia doesn’t kill anyone’ but abortion does. The 72-year-old priest had passed out fliers to parishioners against the lawmakers suggesting a ban on them from acting as witnesses to marriage, serving as godparents, and so on.

What kind of conversation even winds up in a statement like that?

He really needs to be more careful with his wording, and especially with his audience. If you want to make the point that abortion is murder then just say that. Don't compare it to pedophilia. ESPECIALLY in front of reporters.

I understand the point he is making but most people won't understand it. he's saying pedophilia is bad but abortion is even worse.

Is he correct? Yes. Was it a good idea to make that distinction? No. A sin is a sin and if the Catholic Church wants to criticize abortion (which it absolutely should) then it needs to get it's own house in order first.

Murder kills the body. Pedophilia kills the soul.

what the actual fuck? just because one thing is bad (abortion), it doesn't somehow make another thing that is abhorrent less abhorrent.

Possibly poor wording, however if you read the articles he is responding to one of the banned politicians, who brought up the comparison in an attempt to critique the priest's rationale surrounding the ban over abortion.

Can't wait for people to misconstrue this Catholic's words for the beliefs of Christians. Anyone who's actually taken the time to study world religions would know the difference, but oh well.

Lets just go with Abortion and Pedophilia should be banned. And pedophilia might not kill you on the outside but it kills you on the inside.
