"The Afghan situation correlates somewhat to the man boy love scandals plaguing the Vatican right now, in that repressive religious beliefs have dire consequences on the lives of children when the various sexual needs of adult men don't have healthy and consensual outlets, especially of a male-on-male nature."

-- Blogger Michael Petrelis comparing the Afghan tradition of "bacha bazi" or "boy play" and the Catholic Church pedophilia scandal.
