Pedophiles Want Same Rights as Homosexuals

This was inevitable.

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…

Rest here.

The position of the Church should be obvious. Christians cannot in any way approve or support such sinful, evil behavior (cf.  (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10).

Glamorizing Pedophiles

I’m afraid so… Up Next: Glamorizing Pedophiles:

Mainstreaming  of pedophilia via pop culture continues

As some of us have been saying for  years…

Now a (gay) actor/ “role model” announces with delight that his new TV series features a cool new character:

It isn’t going to be watered down. It’s actually going to be darker,  bigger and bolder, and more dramatic. I mean, for goodness’ sake, we’ve  got a main character [played by Bill Pullman] who’s a pedophile! The  interesting thing about that is that the audience is going to be torn, because  they’re going to not like him for what he’s done — but they’re gonna  like him

Is Kia Promoting Pedophilia?

What are they thinking?!

A new Kia ad is raising eyebrows—with some even saying that it promotes pedophilia.

The ad, which promotes a dual-zone climate control feature in one of Kia’s cars, took home the Silver Press Lion at the prestigious Cannes Lion Awards. But it is controversial, to say the least.

The ad features a teacher lusting after his elementary school-aged student. On one side of the page, she appears as a young girl. On the other side, though, she becomes a scantily clad, buxom teen, seemingly as a product of the teacher’s imagination.

It’s clearly designed to shock, and is succeeding. The advertising blog Copyranter called it “one of the sleaziest car ads ever,” and noted that it doesn’t even visualize the benefits of dual climate control very well.

What do you think? Does the ad cross a line?

Here it is:

‘Priest Prohibited’ Signs Enflame Austrian Passions

Austria — The signs depict a priest wearing a long cassock chasing a boy and a girl, framed by a bright red warning circle.

They’re dotted along a southern Austrian wilderness path that cuts through a swath of forest owned by Sepp Rothwangl, and warn priests against entering his land in the company of kids. It’s the wilderness camp owner’s way of dealing with what he says was his own abuse by a clergyman as a child.

The signs might be expected to be nothing more than a one-man protest in a backwoods region far from Austria’s centers of power. Yet they are attracting nationwide attention and threaten to reignite passions over pedophile clergy that Austria’s Catholic establishment had hoped to have put in the past.

The grizzled 60-year says his actions are meant to “express my protest as a simple citizen” — alleging the Roman Catholic church seems incapable of removing abusive priests from office a year after Austria was swept up in the worldwide sex abuse scandal.

He speaks of “anger boiling over” at what he says is the refusal of predator priests to personally apologize to victims.

“Child Protection Area,” declares a message in bold black writing beneath the sign. “Violations will be prosecuted. We are forced to take this action in the interests of unprotected children.”

The message says clergy are prohibited from entering the forest in the company of children unless they are accompanied by parents, guardians or other authorized adults.

Rothwangl’s signs in his 160 hectare (nearly 400 acre) forest in the hills of Styria province are causing friction in part because they are placed along one of the main trails leading to an ornate 16th century basilica that’s a place of pilgrimage for thousands of devout Catholics each year.

But they are generating a wider impact on a church struggling to revive its reputation…

Spokesman Georg Plank of the Archiocese of Graz, Styria’s provincial capital, describes the signs as “a bizarre act which is supposed to generate attention.” He says that while the majority of Austrians see church attempts to make amends positively, “there will always be a small group that is not satisfied.”

Still, he says the church plans to turn the other cheek, with no legal or other challenges planned…

The whole piece is here.

Bizarre.

Dutch Catholic Priest Pedophilia Endorsement Shocks Church

The Huffington Post has the repugnant details:

Amsterdam — The Dutch Catholic Church and the Salesian order are investigating revelations that a Salesian priest served on the board of a group that promotes pedophilia with the full knowledge of his boss.

The order’s top official in the Netherlands, Delegate Herman Spronck, confirmed in a statement that the priest – identified by RTL Nieuws as 73-year-old “Father Van B.” – served on the board of “Martijn,” a group that campaigns to end the Dutch ban on adult-child sex.

The group is widely reviled but not outlawed.

“Of course we reject this and distance ourselves from this personal initiative” on the part of the priest, Spronck said in a statement. “Membership in such organizations does not fit with the ethos of the Salesian order.”

However, Spronck’s own superior in Belgium said he will investigate both Spronck and Van B., after both men were quoted by RTL Nieuws as saying such relationships aren’t always harmful.

Superior Jos Claes told Belgian television on Saturday he “couldn’t imagine” that both men would not be disciplined, but said he must make sure of the facts first.

“Society thinks these relationships are harmful. I disagree,” RTL quoted Van B. as saying. He served on Martijn’s board from 2008 until 2010, when its founder was arrested for alleged possession of child pornography, a case that is ongoing.

Van B. told RTL he remains a member of Martijn and now lives in a retirement home in eastern Netherlands.

In a second interview, RTL quoted Spronck as saying he was aware of Van B.’s pedophilia and membership in Martijn, and even of two instances where the priest had been fined by police for exposing himself in public. But he said he didn’t think that was sufficient reason to ban him from the order.

Absolutely numbing.

How long will this evil go on?
