Normalizing Pedophilia Continues: UK Police Chief Says 13-Year-Old in Porn Not Child Porn

LONDON, November 20, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Terry Grange, the leading officer on child protection of the UK’s Association of Chief Police Officers’ has ignited controversy by commenting in an interview with The Sunday Times that pornography featuring children at 13 years of age should not be considered child porn. Grange also said that the term “pedophiles” should only apply to adults who have sex with 12 and under.

Grange’s comments match those of the pedophilia party launched recently, with court approval, in the Netherlands. The ‘Charity, Freedom and Diversity’ (NVD) party of the Netherlands formed last Spring introduced itself to Dutch politics as a champion of children’s rights. In a press release, the NVD’s spokesman and co-founder, Ad van den Berg said among their goals is lowering the age of consent for sexual activity from 16 to 12 and eventually eliminating it completely.

Grange told the Sunday Times: “Child porn is 12 and under.” On pedophilia he said: “For me, that sort of thing, paedophilia, is [with] prepubescent children.”

In the UK where the age of consent for sexual activity is 16, Grange says, “It is much more of an issue for me if a child is under 13. I think the closer they get to 16 the more it becomes a grey area and I think everyone in the field of dealing with sexual health and sexual activity acknowledges that.”

He added: “I don’t actually personally adhere to the 15-year-old being with a 20-year-old boyfriend being paedophilia, or even if the boyfriend is 30.”

The ACPO incident is the latest in the ongoing normalization of pedophilia, which has picked up steam since homosexual ‘marriage’ has been mainstreamed.Â

In comments this weekend, Romeo and Juliet director Franco Zeffirelli made positive remarks about homosexual sexual contact with young boys.ÂÂ In the context of noting that as a boy he was sexually abused by a priest, Zeffirelli said, “(Homosexual experiences) are not always bad for boys. I don’t think they make you homosexual. Sexual choice is made for you early on in life anyway - if you like girls, you like girls.”

LifeSiteNews.com reported in June on a poll which found 11% of Canadians did not consider pedophilia immoral. (https://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2006/jun/06061204.html )

In 2001, leading Canadian film-makers were promoting the pedophiliac film Fat Girl which featured nude scenes with a thirteen year old. And in 2004 Nicole Kidman starred in the movie Birth which included a scene which made it appear as if she bathed in the nude with a boy of 10 with whom she was sexually interested.

Also in 2004, Glasgow University awarded a student a doctoral degree for his thesis defending pedophilia. (https://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2004/dec/04120306.html )
