    If they have acted upon their perversion then they need the full force of the law brought against them. They then need to repent and seek care to keep from repeating their sin. We can forgive, but the person must show true repentance and a will to change.

    It's a sin the church cannot forgive or tolerate so there is no social redemption or ministry opportunities.

    It's a mental illness that causes harm to others, since "love always protects"

    there must be "healthy boundaries"

    6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened round his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.

    God is mercy and love. God can and does forgive.

    I understand that even today there are no real apostles or COVID would have been cured.

    So though it is not impossible for God, the faith in humans is not available today.

    Forgiveness gives room for healthy boundaries.

    Of course it is a mental disease, no one in their right frame of mind would commit such a perversion. But that does not excuse one from prosecution. In the case of pedophilia there are other innocent people involved that are harmed for the rest of their lives. This cannot go without some sort of prosecution.

    I guess it depends on what you think happens after you forgive someone.

    Just because we forgive someone, or they are forgiven does not mean they are immune to the consequences of their actions. This is particularly the case in sins that are caused to other people, that are against our civil laws. There are always real world consequences for our real world decisions.
