Error of Man: Many experts now view pedophilia as a sexual orientation

 

Many experts now view pedophilia as a sexual orientation [Google+ hangout]

LA Times

Pedophilia once was thought to stem from psychological influences early in life, but now, many experts view it as a deep-rooted predisposition that does not change.

Times reporter Alan Zarembo will join city editor Shelby Grad at 3 p.m. in a Google+ hangout to discuss the origins of pedophilia, which is limited almost entirely to men and becomes clear during puberty and does not change.

Paul Christiano’s desire for young girls remained stuck in time as he neared adulthood. Despite a stable home life in suburban Chicago, he was tortured by urges he knew could land him in prison.

In 1999, Christiano was caught buying child pornography. Now 36, he said he has never molested a child, but after five years of state-ordered therapy, the attraction remains.

Pedophiles want same rights as homosexuals, Claim unfair to be stigmatized for sexual orientation

By Jack Minor | greeleygazzett.com

black-tearsUsing 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.”

Pedophilia has already been granted protected status by the Federal Government. The Matthew Shephard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act lists “sexual orientation” as a protected class; however, it does not define the term.

Republicans attempted to add an amendment specifying that “pedophilia is not covered as an orientation;” however, the amendment was defeated by Democrats. Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fl) stated that all alternative sexual lifestyles should be protected under the law. “This bill addresses our resolve to end violence based on prejudice and to guarantee that all Americans, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability or all of these ‘philias’ and fetishes and ‘isms’ that were put forward need not live in fear because of who they are. I urge my colleagues to vote in favor of this rule.”

The White House praised the bill saying, “At root, 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.”

Earlier this year two psychologists in Canada declared that pedophilia is a sexual orientation just like homosexuality or heterosexuality.

Van Gijseghem, psychologist and retired professor of the University of Montreal, told members of Parliament, “Pedophiles are not simply people who commit a small offense from time to time but rather are grappling with what is equivalent to a sexual orientation just like another individual may be grappling with heterosexuality or even homosexuality.”

He went on to say, “True pedophiles have an exclusive preference for children, which is the same as having a sexual orientation. You cannot change this person’s sexual orientation. He may, however, remain abstinent.”

    It’s all superficial, people like this wants you to accept, make excuses and tolerate sin. To convince us that we are born this way, no you do have a choice, free will. God’s Word tell us that ( the sins of the father are passed down from generation to generation. So to say we are born this way is to accept and excuse us to live in sin. For the experts to say that this is deep rooted predisposition that does not change. Well they can change, most experts believe superficial anyway as most people do. The root of the problem is sin and the world does not see it as that. Superficial which is: ( concerned only with what is obvious or apparent : not thorough or complete: affecting only the outer part or surface of something : not deep or serious: lying close to the surface)  Our soul is composed of the heart (to feel), the mind (to think), and the will (to decide). If people would come to the acknowledge of what sin is, they would repent and ask God for forgiveness and be born again which is receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior and the indwelling of God’s Spirit. People do not have to live in sin and torment from it they can be set free. Jesus came to save, heal and deliver us from all sin. Romans:8-6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. Romans:8-13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. May the people be shown the era of their ways.

    This is disgusting. How could abusing and mutilating and traumatizing children be a protected sexual preference? If someone had a fantasy for killing the president or harming the president or any one else of prominence, it would be treated in a completely different manner. These tendencies should be treated as threats to children. Even if we don’t look at it from a biblical perspective, the biological/physical/psychological repercussions on children is terrible. Children were not made for sex. Sodomy is especially mutilating. What will they say next? A person’s disposition for arson is genetic and should be protected, or someone’s fantasy for murder should be protected????? !!!!! Anyone who purchases child pornography should be jailed, not protected.What these people want to do to children is heinous and should not be protected in any way!

  3. Sher

    I mean, we knew that this was coming. In one of the TBHH videos I remember Craig stating.. What’s wrong with murder, who said that.. the same God that said somethings wrong with two gay men loving one another.

    if you condone one sin, where does one draw the line. God hates sin.. all of it. From “the (so-called) little white lie to homosexuality.. its all the same to God, SIN!

    I fear for us all, especially the children.

  4. Disgusted

    This is totally disgusting….we have come to a place where every sin has an excuse. Nobody is responsible for their actions anymore. It seems obvious that the people who are redefining pedophilia do NOT have children of their own, or they would certainly NOT take this stand. Of course they have an attraction,, of course they cannot change if they do NOT want to change. Anyone can STOP having sex, anytime they want. YOU have to CHOOSE to STOP sin, criminal activity, hurting innocent people, berating others, whatever you want to call it. Innocent children/now adults are indeed suffering because of the abuse placed upon them, how can anyone say there is no lasting results from abuse? Give your heads a shake! The Lord will cast you all out for your ignorance, and acceptance of sin. If you don’t want to call it sin, then demented minds – how’s that for keeping it non Christian? I just have to say that I feel badly for those of you who have been sexually molested, in anyway. I pray that you will find peace, and be delivered from the nightmares that surround you. I pray a protection of love and peace to surround you, and that you would find the love of Christ to sustain you. May you come to a place of forgiveness, not because of accepting what someone has done to you, but because you need to release yourself from unhealthy anger and bitterness. Praise God, we can all find forgiveness, and Lord we ask that You would change the hearts of those who have decided to call this sin sickness, and want to allow the hand of satan to harm our children in any way. In Jesus name amen

    You can have victory my Brother by placing your Faith exclusively in Christ and His finished work on Calvary. You placed your faith there for salvation, no works or laws necessary. Now place your faith there for your sanctification, no works or laws necessary. Jesus Christ is the source of all things we recieve from God (Jn. 14:6; Col. 2:10). You cannot gain the victory from anything that you can do, this robs God from His glory. Our responsibility is to stop struggling with sin and rest in what Christ has already done. This allows the Holy Spirit to do the work for us. “In Whom also you are circumcised with the Circumcision made without hands (brought about by what Christ did on the Cross), in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the Circumcision of Christ (refers to the old carnal nature that is defeated by the the Believer placing his faith in Christ’s Finished Work, which allows the Holy Spirit to cut away the flesh).(Col. 2:11)

    FOCUS: The Lord Jesus Christ.(Jn.14:6) Vs. Works
    OBJECT OF FAITH: The Cross of Christ(Rom.6:3-5) Vs. Our Performance
    POWER SOURCE: The Holy Spirit(Rom.8:1-2,11) Vs. Self
    RESULTS: Victory!(Rom.6:14) Vs. Defeat!
    Faith in Christ and His Finished Work on Calvary’s Cross by the Believer is the only way sin can be defeated.
    (Excerpt from “Brother Swaggert, Here is My Question About the Cross” by Jimmy Swaggert)

    My Brother, if you don’t quit, God won’t quit!!!

    This would be very distressing to parents who care about their children’s well-being.
    They would become worried about leaving their children anywhere, be it school, baby sitter
    even with at ‘friend’s house.

    Any law passed to allow pedophiles to freely approach a child as an adult seeking sexual favours is absolutely dangerous.
    Jesus said, ‘Suffer the little children to come unto me.’

    People so inclined are tempting God’s wrath.

  7. Anthony Burrell

    These people are absolutely correct. Homosexuals, pedophiles, etc. Were born “that” way. I was born with this undying attraction towards women. The problem is that the world doesn’t accept that all brands of fornication and sexual immorality rebel against the very image of God our creator. If left to my own sinful nature I would sleep with every woman, whore, and prostitute who would allow me to, because I was born “that” way. “What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God–through Jesus Christ our Lord!” (Romans 7:24-25) We all grow up with, and others develop, lusts and desires that hold us captive and separate us from our most holy creator. We were all born “this” way (whatever “this” may refer to for you), but thank God that through his son Christ Jesus he offers us a chance to be BORN AGAIN.

  8. Reginald Johnson

    How many of us wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for pedophilia?

  9. Kelz

    Those initiating it to be acceptable is more likely the pedophiles too…

  10. Victim of Sexual Abuse

    As a VICTIM of child molestation myself, it is disgusting to me that anyone would classify me or any INNOCENT CHILD as a “sexual preference” and think that it is acceptable. This is absolutely wrong, degrading, and disgusting. It is an ILLNESS and a CRIME, how dare anyone think it is anything but that-unless you have not had to grow up and live with this for your whole life, you have no room to try to support this change for the pedophiles. What needs to happen is they need to stay away from kids and get psychiatric help, then stay away from kids some more. People need to quit sweeping this under the rug and acting like it is OK. Sure they might need help, but what about those of us that have suffered at their hands? What for us? God help these sick people and also help the sick people that seek this change. Help them see with clear eyes, and see their wrong. Also, help those that are suffering every day as a result of child molestation and abuse, please give them peace and strength to get through it. Amen.

    The video of the two men talking was so dead and full of confusion that I couldn’t watch the whole thing. It literally made me sleepy and confused. Totally demonic and kind of stupid. Like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole .

  12. shayshay

    This is sick and this is mess is happening right before our eyes.

  13. Mrs Roberson

    This is such crap. This is just another way for people to have an excuse for their sick behavior .” I can’t help it I was born this way”, give me a break. So are we now going to have pedophile rights. You need to check out NAMBLA – Man Boy Love Association. They want to be able to have sexual relationships with Children. They think it’s nothing wrong with this ” attraction”. People better wake up. Science my butt. Science has been wrong in the past and will take many years before they admit their errors. This is a prime example of flawed science!!!

  14. markdonna7

    May God have mercy on them, so they are call evil good and good evil.

  15. eyes of a watchman

    The floodgates have been opened and it’s only going to take God to close it. We are in the days of Noah and Lot. Nothing is going to get better. Sin will INCREASE more and more each day before JESUS returns. We must speak TRUTH to others and let God deal with them accordingly.

  16. Duckmanbill

    OK, people here are obviously getting the wrong idea from this. Classifying it as a sexual orientation does *NOT* somehow make it ok. It will still be illegal to act out on the desire. Convicted pedophiles are not going to be released from prison. If anything, reclassifying it as such will serve to protect children, because the law will recognize pedophiles can’t be changed (baring devine intervention), giving justification to them remaining on the sexual offenders registry for life.

    To suggest some members of congress are somehow pro-pedophilia is ludicrous.

  17. AngryVictim

    This is the most evil act that can be perpetrated on a child. And truly is demonically driven. To rob a child of their innocence out of selfish ungodly desires.Not only inflicts pain and physical/emotional trauma but forever changes the child. God please come soon, this world is headed for judgement.

  18. kerry b. nichols

    Right is wrong, up is down, and sin is righteousness. The box has been open and all vile and rotteness has been let loose. I jsut wonder if these same ppl who favior this bill, will the same when it is their child who these monster are havin sex with, maybe some of them are closet sexual deviant.

  19. Ibn

    If this becomes another “sexual orientation” then the government will have to release those in prison previously convicted. There will be no such thing as sexual predators. We are living in the days of Noah. I pray that the body of Christ gets serious and start sharing the gospel like our lives depend on it. Because truth is, souls depend on it. Jesus come quick!

  20. chrissmix

    this is craziness in the world & in the government love of many have become cold

  21. Annoyomus

    As someone who struggles with it, it is a very powerful sin that makes you hate yourself and want to commit suicide. You constantly wonder what kind of pathetic excuse for a human being you are that you would actually be attracted to young girls. You cant even tell anyone and seek help, because you will be condemned as a disgusting outcast in society.

    Though we should give everyone struggling with this a fighting chance and not condemn them for having the urges, we should still punish the acts themselves and be aware that me and others are potentially dangerous to little kids. Its like a constantly battle, it takes everything I have not to look at pornography of it and to stay away from temptation in real life.

  22. Bunni

    And when we said 2 years ago this would happen, we were laughed at and told we were being judgmental and absurd.

  23. Shavon Stewart

    Anybody who believes that being molested by any adult does not hurt a child is fool. That is all I have to say.

  24. ReesyReese

    Straight up nastiness to the 10th degree!!

  25. bimos

    tnx
