The preferred nomenclature

What the fuck are you talking about? The pedophilia in the Catholic Church is not the issue here, Dude. I'm talking about drawing a line in the sand, Dude. Across this line, you DO NOT... Also, Dude, pedophilia is not the preferred nomenclature. Ephebophilia, please.

Also, I am intrigued by the curious use of the word 'only' in the sentence "The statement ... defended [the Church's] record by claiming that "available research" showed that only 1.5%-5% of Catholic clergy were involved in child sex abuse." I guess even at the worst, a 95% is still an A, right?
