Pedophile support group seeks ‘truth and dignity’ - Want same rights as homosexuals
August 2, 2013 (Renewamerica.com) – Who could've seen this coming? Well, those of us who can see the "logical" end results of the radical homosexual movement, that's who. With homosexual activists on the march throughout our government, military, schools and society in general, many of us have warned that their push for special "rights" would – besides trample on the freedoms of speech, religion and association of those who oppose them – inevitably lead to demands by other sexual deviants, like pedophiles, for their own societal affirmation.
Jack Minor, in his column titled "Pedophiles want same rights as homosexuals," wrote:
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."
I don't know where the APA came up with such absurd claims. Childhood sexual abuse has screwed up countless millions of people. It is a lie from the pit of Hell to say that shattering a child's fragile innocence in such an abominable way, in the "vast majority" of cases, has no negative "sexual effects." Childhood sexual abuse has strong, clear correlations to numerous problems, sexual and otherwise, that victims experience into adulthood. Some of the problems, cited by the American Counseling Association, include:
... higher levels of depression, guilt, shame, self-blame, eating disorders, somatic concerns, anxiety, dissociative patterns, depression, denial, sexual problems, and relationship problems.
Childhood sexual abuse victims may also struggle with drug and alcohol abuse, suicidal tendencies and possibly even become abusers themselves. Anyone who says that childhood sexual abuse doesn't really hurt kids is a liar with an evil agenda.
I read through the B4U-ACT website to see what it's about. It's a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization. B4U-ACT (why the dumbed-down abbreviated name?) has quite a bit of repetition on its site. Its subheading is "Living in Truth and Dignity." Truth and dignity for whom? Pedophiles? How about for their little victims? I looked throughout the site for any condemnation of adult sexual contact with children but found none.
By sanitizing the term for child predators in calling them "minor-attracted people," the B4U-ACT gang is trying to remove the quite-warranted repulsion society has for pedophiles. They also parse the definition of pedophile by trying to put child sexual perverts in various innocuous categories to suggest some of these deviants would never act on their "affections" toward children.
From their "Principles and Perspectives of Practice" page:
... We see minor-attracted people as whole human beings, not as dangerous criminals or "deviants."
... We recognize the severe stigma directed against minor-attracted people by the media, politicians, law enforcement officials, and some mental health professionals. We oppose the perpetuation of false stereotypes and the use of language that instills fear in the public, fails to promote understanding, and ignores the humanity of minor-attracted people.
... Providers have an obligation to offer and engage in continuing education and professional growth activities on an ongoing basis in order to promote and develop a more accurate understanding of individuals who are sexually attracted to minors and to improve services for them. Such activities should challenge popular stereotypes rather than reinforce them, and portray the full humanity of minor-attracted people.
These people are pedophile defenders. While there are statements on the site that indicate they do not want adults to break the law, there is no condemnation for always-detestable adult sexual contact with children. Instead, this group seeks to fight "false stereotypes" of child sexual predators. What a sham! Despite their claims to the contrary, YES, people who lust for children WILL act on those hell-born "feelings."
The public does not need to be "educated" to develop an "understanding" of pedophiles. We already know all we need to know about them. What they do is despicable, and only a miracle transformation of their spirits by God can break the evil chain of darkest sin that ensnares their souls, and although it's possible, it's a very hard thing to accomplish, because as Jesus said of such people in Matthew 18:6,
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
Our nation is walking in darkness, and it's getting darker by the minute. The militant homosexual movement is steamrolling across the country shoving perverse sexual degeneracy in our faces, warping the minds and spirits of our school kids, shredding the meaning of marriage, destroying the cohesion of our military and spitting on the rights of others. Don't think for a minute that other sexual perverts will not follow the same battle plan as the homosexual alphabet soup brigade in their quest to force society to accept sexual abomination. The first step is to create sympathy and "understanding" for the child sexual predator, and the B4U-ACT website bends over backward to do just that.
