Have the guiding principles of major religions in the world been hijacked or they got it all wrong?


Scriptures of some of the major religions in the world have all sorts of opinions on the sexual act. They even outrightly condemn 'Homosexuality' but strangely have no opinion on 'Paedophilia'. To my understanding Paedophilia must have existed in the society for centuries whereas homosexuality would still be a fairly newer concept. If so, then why is it that it fails to find a mention? More and more paedophile cases have started echoing right from the citadels of religion. Would it then be wrong, to say there's a possible breach or perhaps moral-bankruptcy right at the heart of the religion?

    @Miz, the question was essentially on the selective highlighting of one issue and silence on the other. Religion driven practises were never sane so as to evn speak off. If it wasn't for the society, religion wud have continued to enforce them.

    I do second your closing comments and hence for mere lack of reasoning and blind faith, I wouldn't look for answers there. Simply put I take it as the Accomplice and the Accuser but the potshots are actually @ the torch bearers!

    So what you're implying is, these emerged in modern societies. If so then, why is homosexuality condemned in the holy books?

    And would you mind explaining what 'women rights' have to do with paedophila or homosexuality??
