|It was pretty routine to the Greeks. Pederastic "courtship."|
The problem with "pedophilia" in the Catholic priesthood, such as it is, has nothing to do with celibacy.
What nobody dares say is that it has a lot to do with homosexuality.
It is mostly a matter of gay priests "grooming" younger sexual partners.
It is quite natural for homosexuals, despite all the denials, to latch on like a limpet to young teenage boys. Since their sexuality has not yet been fully fixed and confirmed by experience, they are more lilekly to be open to homoesxual acts. Moreover, in case of any resistance, they are weaker. And less credible to the authorities.
It must, after all, be difficult for homosexuals to find sexual partners. Ninety-eight percent of those they are attracted to, and might approach, are going to be repelled by the idea, and may even react violently. Not good for your ego, at best.
Younger boys are the perfect solution.

It also seems quite likely, given this dynamic, that nobody is born homosexual. They are turned homosexual by older homosexuals if they are gotten to at this early, impressionable age.
Early sexual experiences are likely to leave a deep impression.
Sadly, this means that a lot of gays have probably become priests out of no religious feeling, but as a useful way to meet and gain the confidence of such young men.
As many become teachers, or coaches.
Exit question: have you ever noticed that homosexual men are generally unusually good looking? Conversely, that unusually good looking men are more likely to be homosexual?
It makes sense: an older homosexual is going to approach the pretty boys first. The girls who come later get the leftovers.
