“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.
Many of those who have opposed identifying homosexuality as merely an ‘alternative lifestyle,’ have been concerned that this would happen with other sexual orientations.” Gays and others supporting them have argued that this would never happen. But now it is.
The American Psychiatric Association (APA) is right in the middle of the drive to “normalize” pedophiles. In 1973 it changed the classification of homosexuality from being a mental disorder and now considers it normal. The APA has also issued a 1998 supporting report in which it claims that there are no “negative effects” in either men or women from childhood sexual abuse.
Recently, a group of psychiatrists held a symposium and proposed a new definition for pedophiles; “minor-attracted people.” And earlier this year, two Canadian psychologists suggested that pedophilia is a sexual orientation just like homosexuality or heterosexuality.”
Advocates of normalizing pedophilia argue that the government has already protected them by the Hate Crimes Prevention Act which list “sexual orientation” as a protected class. Though Republicans tried to pass an amendment in the U.S. Congress excluding pedophilia as a protected class, Democrats defeated it. Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fl) said that “all alternative sexual lifestyles should be protected under the law.”
The White House (as in President Obama) praised the [unamended] bill. “At root,” he said, “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.”
Advocates of normalizing pedophilia are riding on the back of the success of the homosexual movement to promote their agenda. They try to make legal discrimination against pedophiles and other fetishes and “isms” equivalent to race, color and religious discrimination. Psychiatrists argue, for instance, that pedophilia is like homosexuality in that a person cannot change this orientation.
“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’ she said ‘to introduce sex to children at younger and younger ages; to convince them that normal friendship is actually a sexual attraction.’”
There have also been legal challenges in several American states to sex offender laws.
Sexual perversion is described in scripture as one of the key features of the end times. “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves…, Without natural affection… lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God… 2 Timothy 3:1-4
Jesus characterized the end times like the times of Lot in Sodom. “Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot… Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” Luke 17:28, 30
Pedophiles want same rights as homosexuals
