Pedophiles want same rights as homosexuals, Claim unfair to be stigmatized for sexual orientation

Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals.


Critics of the homosexual lifestyle have long claimed that once it became acceptable to identify homosexuality as simply an “alternative lifestyle” or sexual orientation, logically nothing would be off limits. “Gay” advocates have taken offense at such a position insisting this would never happen. However, psychiatrists are now beginning to advocate redefining pedophilia in the same way homosexuality was redefined several years ago.


In 1973 the American Psychiatric Association declassified homosexuality from its list of mental disorders. A group of psychiatrists with B4U-Act recently held a symposium proposing a new definition of pedophilia in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders of the APA.


B4U-Act  calls pedophiles “minor-attracted people.” The organization’s website states its purpose is to, “help mental health professionals learn more about attraction to minors and to consider the effects of stereotyping, stigma and fear.”


In 1998 The APA issued a report claiming “that the ‘negative potential’ of adult sex with children was ‘overstated’ and that ‘the vast majority of both men and women reported no negative sexual effects from  childhood sexual abuse experiences.”


Pedophilia has already been granted protected status by the Federal Government. The Matthew Shephard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act lists “sexual orientation” as a protected class; however, it does not define the term.


Republicans attempted to add an amendment specifying that “pedophilia is not covered as an orientation;” however, the amendment was defeated by Democrats. Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fl) stated that all alternative sexual lifestyles should be protected under the law. “This bill addresses our resolve to end violence based on prejudice and to guarantee that all Americans, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability or all of these ‘philias’ and fetishes and ‘isms’ that were put forward need not live in fear because of who they are. I urge my colleagues to vote in favor of this rule.”


The White House praised the bill saying, “At root, this isn’t just about our laws; this is about who we are as a people. This is about whether we value one another  – whether we embrace our differences rather than allowing them to become a source of animus.”


Earlier this year two psychologists in Canada declared that pedophilia is a sexual orientation just like homosexuality or heterosexuality.


Van Gijseghem, psychologist and retired professor of the University of Montreal, told members of Parliament, “Pedophiles are not simply people who commit a small offense from time to time but rather are grappling with what is equivalent to a sexual orientation just like another individual may be grappling with heterosexuality or even homosexuality.”


He went on to say, “True pedophiles have an exclusive preference for children, which is the same as having a sexual orientation. You cannot change this person’s sexual orientation. He may, however, remain abstinent.”


When asked if he should be comparing pedophiles to homosexuals, Van Gijseghem replied, “If, for instance, you were living in a society where heterosexuality is proscribed or prohibited and you were told that you had to get therapy to change your sexual orientation, you would probably say that that is slightly crazy. In other words, you would not accept that at all. I use this analogy to say that, yes indeed, pedophiles do not change their sexual orientation.”


Dr. Quinsey, professor emeritus of psychology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, agreed with Van Gijseghem. Quinsey said pedophiles’ sexual interests prefer children and, “There is no evidence that this sort of preference can be changed through treatment or through anything else.”

In July, 2010 Harvard health Publications said, “Pedophilia is a sexual orientation and unlikely to change. Treatment aims to enable someone to resist acting on his sexual urges.”


Linda Harvey, of Mission America, said the push for pedophiles to have equal rights will become more and more common as LGBT groups continue to assert themselves. “It’s all part of a plan to introduce sex to children at younger and younger ages; to convince them that normal friendship is actually a sexual attraction.”


Milton Diamond, a University of Hawaii professor and director of the Pacific Center for Sex and Society, stated that child pornography could be beneficial to society because, “Potential sex offenders use child pornography as a substitute for sex against children.”


Diamond is a distinguished lecturer for the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco. The IASHS openly advocated for the repeal of the Revolutionary war ban on homosexuals serving in the military.


The IASHS lists, on its website, a list of “basic sexual rights” that includes “the right to engage in sexual acts or activities of any kind whatsoever, providing they do not involve nonconsensual acts, violence, constraint, coercion or fraud.” Another right is to, “be free of persecution, condemnation, discrimination, or societal intervention in private sexual behavior” and “the freedom of any sexual thought, fantasy or desire.” The organization also says that no one should be “disadvantaged because of  age.”


Sex offender laws protecting children have been challenged in several states including California, Georgia and Iowa. Sex offenders claim the laws prohibiting them from living near schools or parks are unfair because it penalizes them for life.

Psalm 92:7

"When the wicked ones sprout as the vegetation

And all the practicers of what is hurtful blossom forth,

It is that they may be annihilated forever."

We know we're living in 'the time of the harvest', but to use another agricultural metaphor, a good part of the crop of Jesus' illustration consists of weeds. Those weeds have now gone to seed and are multiplying.

It's getting harder and harder to find those solitary stalks of wheat. It must be time to put a torch to it!

B4U-Act  calls pedophiles “minor-attracted people.” 




reminds me of this WT article...


living in sin =  living together
adultery = having an affair
homosexuality =  alternate lifestyle
w10 6/1  'Whatever Happened to Sin'
So whatever happened to sin? The fact is that nothing happened to it. People just began calling it by other names in hopes that it would appear less serious than it is. Many either dulled or ignored their conscience. All who desire God’s favor must resist such a tendency. As we have seen, the wages of sin is, not just a bruised ego or embarrassment, but death. Sin is a matter of life and death.

                   At that time those who fear Jehovah spoke with one another, each one with his companion,

                             and Jehovah kept paying attention and listening..." ~ Malachi 3:16

I think the big difference between the two groups is that the victims of paedophiles are too young to give any 'informed consent', whereas it could be argued (and is) that homosexual activity is between 'consenting adults'.

So, I am not convinced that the two cases could be considered equivalent in law.

If little girls and boys are having sex at 11 I don't think it's a far stretch to say that homosexual activity would be more common at an earlier age. I've heard homosexuals say -- "I've always known I was gay, since I was a young boy or girl" blah blah... and talking them into some preverted sexual activity wouldn't be illegal if they pass the law. I really think it's only a matter of time before it happens...

There is a very strong agenda and push to get that accomplished -- There are several government officials that are known pedos like Barny Frank that was caught with a 15 year old boy (consensually having sex) and nothing was done about it and Barney Frank is still in office and respected. I've met other Politicials that are as sexually deranged as a human being can possibly be and they are running the country...

Look at #7 of the State agenda for homosexuals on this page.. they are talking about Pedophilia. I'm pretty sure it's going to happen.

Here's where human "law" is a load of baloney for lack of a better word.  It's sexual preference.  Some folks are into people of the same sex and some folks are into kids, hence, alternative life style.  Both sets of reasoning are "animalistic demonic" (Jude 18, 19) . . .“In the last time there will be ridiculers, proceeding according to their own desires for ungodly things.” 19 These are the ones that make separations, animalistic [men], not having spirituality. 

Remember when the angels went to warn Lot and all the men of the city came to Lot's home?  (Genesis 19:4) . . .the men of the city, the men of Sod′om, surrounded the house, from boy to old man, all the people in one mob. . .
A sister once told me that her son confessed homosexuality and defended it by saying that he felt as strongly about his preference as heterosexuals feel about their's.  She said she referred him back to what Jehovah pronounced after the flood of Noah's day, (Genesis 8:21) . . .the inclination of the heart of man is bad from his youth up. . .  She then told him that his strong preference toward homosexuality in no way indicated that he was "born" that way.  She informed him that as his mother, she had noticed feminine tendencies in him from her earliest memories of him as a child.  However, that was an inclination and he had the choice to either go with it and give in or resist.
Jesus compared the time of the end to the time of Lot, hmm, maybe this is why.  Just sayin'...
