Having read the the 'Magill' interview which has provoked so much controversy, it is clear to see that Mr Norris was alluding to his state of mind as a young man in a society which was then hostile to homosexuals, as evidenced by the four words "when I was younger".

A man should not be condemned for his youthful innocence. I cannot believe that Mr Norris would advocate or endorse paedophilia in any shape or form -- the very suggestion is preposterous.
