Batman: "The line "let's not call it child abuse, let`s call it child rape" is the perfect example of this. He is using a stronger word that people will react more emotionally to, when the weaker term is more accurate, if either of the two is."
Nice try at psychoanalysing his speech. There is nothing wrong with knowing how to speak to your audience. Hell, you wouldn`t purchase anything as a consumer if your advertisers didn`t know their audience and speak to you in ways that capture your attention and leave an impression. You act like this is a wrong thing. Well, it`s not... but you are.
Also, did priests have sexual intercourse with young boys? YES
Is sex with minors termed as rape? YES
Then, is it called rape? YES
I don`t see the problem here. Perhaps you are a pedophile and like to drat little boys? Did I capture your attention with the use of my language?
