Why catholic priests abuse teenagers

If you ask me grandfather Freud answered this question a long time ago in his article on child sexuality. In a nutshell Freud’s point was that if a person can’t have normal sexual intercourse with a person of the opposite sex for whatever reason, their sexual drive will inevitable drive them to look for alternatives, which include but are not limited to intercourse with people of the same sex, masturbation and what not, the imagination is the limit. Again being the revolutionary that he was Freud boldly stated that sex is not just when a man sticks his penis into a woman’s vagina, sex is any activity where you derive sensual pleasure from your body.
Now consider catholic priests, the RC still has the celibacy rule for its priests, in other words catholic priests are not allowed to marry. Imho this rule is totally arcane and unreasonable, and it’s little wonder, that having no natural release for their libido, poor catholic priests end up pouncing on kids. Shame, really, there’s lots of other areas, like science, in which the RC has been able to adapt quite nicely, why they have to carry on torturing their clergy is beyond me.
