This is a big accusation, do you have source to back this up?
I agree with the principle of people being able to change their minds and we should accommodate that, but I also have a hard time giving a huge credit when a 66 year old man says that contrary to everything he's written on the subject, he has recently learned that having sex with children is wrong.
If changing doesn't have any benefits, would anyone change?
I'm not saying there should be no lasting repurcussions for such behavior, but when someone admits they are wrong, it should matter.
If admitting they were wrong doesn't matter, then it doesn't make any sense for them to do it.
