Pedophilia and Incest: justified by the homosexuality mindset?

Peter Baklinski

August 8, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Same-sex styled romance and relationships are portrayed in the same manner virtually every time by media powers. The man or woman meets a member of the same sex and gushes out that he or she “just knew” that this was “the one”. “It was love at first sight”, they are sure to say, followed by lines about wanting to “get married” and “live happily ever after”. The camera usually zooms in on the enamored couple holding hands, looking at one another tenderly, or maybe even kissing one another.

I have no problem with people of the same sex deeply loving one another and being inclined to do so. How could I have a problem with that? Am I not a man who deeply loves his father, his brothers, and his dear male friends? I would like to think that I would lay down my life for them if needed.

I do have a problem, however, when people say that inclinations and feelings of love ought to translate to sexual expression.

The homosexual argument that one encounters again and again is that two people who love one another ought to be able to express their love and have society happily recognize their loving relationship. I call this the ‘homosexual mindset’. It has become a predominant mindset that has shown itself to tolerate no dissent.

The problem with this mindset is that one can go onto justify practically anything in the name of ‘loving feelings’.

A grown man who loves children, according to the homosexual mindset, ought to be able to have sexual relations with those children, simply because he is inclined to them and has loving feelings towards them. According to this mindset, anyone who says otherwise is a pedophiliaphobe and a bigot.

You think I go too far with my reasoning?

So-called psychology experts have claimed that pedophilia is a “sexual orientation” comparable to homosexuality or heterosexuality. Homosexual-themed academic conferences have taken place that are aimed at reordering society so that the “stigma” associated with older men acting sexually toward younger children will be erased. People at these venues imbued with the homosexual mindset suggest that persons who are “emotionally and sexually attracted to children” ought to be called “minor-attracted persons” and have society bless their inclinations and the sexual acts that result from them.

If people can justify having sexual relations with minors because of their loving feelings toward children, then why not justify parents having sexual relations with their own children? With the homosexual mindset, a father should be able to have sexual relationships with his daughter because, after all, he loves her and even has intense feelings toward her. According to such a mindset, anyone who criticizes such people is an incestaphobe and a bigot.

You see, the lie that the promoters of the homosexual mindset perpetrate is that people are defined by their inclinations and that they must act on them in order to find fulfillment.

But the startling fact is that no one, absolutely no one, is defined by their inclinations. Is someone who is experiencing an inclination to kill others automatically a murderer? Is a man struggling with an inclination to rape automatically a rapist? Is someone who is inclined to overeat automatically a fattened glutton? Of course not. People become who they are by the acts they commit.

If this is true, then persons who experience inclinations to the same-sex are not automatically homosexual, but they are simply experiencing an inclination that they can choose to act or not to act upon.

Another fact is that every person alive today struggles daily with disordered tendencies, whether it be a struggle against greed, lust, selfishness, anger, or overeating. The fact is that everybody is looking to love somebody and to be loved by somebody. But it is not true, as the Beatles sing, that “all you need is love”. You also need love to be led by truth. For instance, such as the biological and moral truth that sexual relations are ordered towards the creation of a new life that is best nurtured and reared within a stable marital relationship.

The truth is that some relationships are moral and responsible, such as marriage, just as others are immoral and irresponsible, such as adultery. Society thus far has unanimously condemned relationships that involve grown men having sex with children, calling them disgusting and morally repugnant. Society, once upon a time not very long ago, also condemned homosexual relationships with the same kind of abhorrence. But society has been forced in the name of love and tolerance to accept the homosexual mindset. Shall the homosexual mindset also move us to accept pedophilia and incest?
