Interesting choice of words, Angry... "leading
a child into sin". From my viewpoint, for an adult male (or female, for that matter; gender is irrelevant, although the vast majority of pedophiles are male rather than female) to have sex with a child would instead be defined as "forcing
the child into a sex act for the adult's gratification"... making the child a victim and not a co-sinner.
