Post Jesus link with ancient pederast sect?

I recall reading many months ago, in one of the articles in the Historical Jesus section of the Infidel.org library, that there was a sect of pederasts who claimed Jesus as one of them, but their texts were discarded when gathering the various books that today constitute the Bible. It was only a passing mention of it though.

If anyone knows what I'm talking about, would you have any further information about it? Even if only the name of the sect.

Thanks,
Sastan

There is no hard evidence demonstrating that Jesus was a pederast, but there are places in the NT that suggest that Jesus loved young men.

It is possible that the author was thinking about Secret Mark.

Here is some information about Secret Mark.

Secret Mark is intriguing, and potentially a useful cudgel with which to beat the Religious Reich. I wonder what Fred Phelps and Jerry Falwell think of it. Maybe the veracity of Secret Mark is what fires their unhealthy obsessions.

I think maybe they are more interested in Victoria's Secret than they are in Secret Mark ...THAT is what fires their unhealthy obsessions
