Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
um, are you suggesting that
  1. there was a particular upsurge in paedophilia in the catholic church during the 60s-70s period
  2. this was theorised by paedophile priests as a matter of sexual liberation?

These would be two extraordinary claims... Data will probably be hard to come by for the first; but for the second, if anything was ever published on the subject, it should be easy.

I think the reality is that paedophilia was always, until very recently, considered a very minor misdemeanor by the church hierarchy.
