Conference seeks to normalize pedophilia

John Rossomando, in an article for The Daily Caller, is reporting that, "If a small group of psychiatrists and other mental health professionals have their way at a conference this week, pedophiles themselves could play a role in removing pedophilia from the American Psychiatric Association’s bible of mental illnesses — the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), set to undergo a significant revision by 2013. Critics warn that their success could lead to the decriminalization of pedophilia.

The August 17 Baltimore conference is sponsored by B4U-ACT, a group of pro-pedophile mental health professionals and sympathetic activists. According to the conference brochure, the event will examine “ways in which minor-attracted persons [pedophiles] can be involved in the DSM 5 revision process” and how the popular perceptions of pedophiles can be reframed to encourage tolerance..." (See here).

For years I have been warning that the Reign of Antichrist will witness a celebration of sin and perversion the likes of which few can imagine. Pleasure is the new principle par excellence. When I wrote [several years ago] that, "If pleasure can justify homosexual behavior (and increasingly that is what our sin-sick society is saying), then other deviant forms of sexual activity which are viewed as pleasurable by some will also be logically justified. This will include pedophilia, pederasty, ephebophilia, gerontophilia, necrophilia, sadism, masochism and bestiality," I was mocked by homosexual activists.

As noted here, Homosexual Alfred Kinsey, the USA's preeminent sexual researcher, found in 1948 that 37 percent of all male homosexuals admitted to having sex with children under 17 years old.

A recent study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that 'The best epidemiological evidence indicates that only 2 - 4% of men attracted to adults prefer men. In contrast, around 25 - 40% of men attracted to children prefer boys. Thus, the rate of homosexual attraction is 6-20 times higher among pedophiles.'

Another recent study in the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that '... all but 9 of the 48 homosexual men preferred the youngest two male age categories.' These age categories were fifteen and twenty years old.

A third study in the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that 'Pedophilia appears to have a greater than chance association with two other statistically infrequent phenomena. The first of these is homosexuality ... Recent surveys estimate the prevalence of homosexuality, among men attracted to adults, in the neighborhood of 2%. In contrast, the prevalence of homosexuality among pedophiles may be as high as 30 - 40%.'

A study in the Journal of Sex Research noted that '... the proportion of sex offenders against male children among homosexual men is substantially larger than the proportion of sex offenders against female children among heterosexual men ... the development of pedophilia is more closely linked with homosexuality than with heterosexuality.'

A study of 229 convicted child molesters published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that 'eighty-six percent of [sexual] offenders against males described themselves as homosexual or bisexual.'

Culture in crisis!

Ultimately, this is what the homosexual movement wants - access to your children. This is why they seek to indoctrinate kids in the public schools. So that they will be more receptive to the "lifestyle."

We are definitely in the midst of the General Apostasy. Consider this: a USCCB advisor speaking at a pro-pedophile convention. Go to this link...

Amazingly, so many who purport to be Catholic or Christian still do not understand that this is a clash of two worldviews; one which is Christian and the other which is intrinsically anti-Christian. The two will not - they cannot - coexist.

Pedophilia is more common among homosexuals.

What aload of crap.

Decriminalizing pedophilia isn't at all what the group B4U-ACT is about at all. Rather, they seek to help people to avoid turning unhealthy thoughts into action. When someone harbors thoughts or desires centering on innocent children, they definitely need psychological help and counseling, and supporting the efforts of mental health professionals to provide them such assistance shouldn't be interpreted as condoning or validating those impulses.

Frank's comment is uncharitable at best and contrary to our Catholic teachings at worst regarding those that the Lord terms as 'incapable of marriage because they were born so' (Matthew 19).

Wendy's comment is a blatant lie: Our Catholic bishops commissioned the John Jay school to study the matter, and it absolutely is not true at all that there is any relationship between crimes of pedophilia and persons with homosexual orientation. More young men were victimized during the period of greatest abuse only because during the period studied we had only young men as altar servers. Pedophilia isn't about sex, it's about power. Seminaries were swamped during the 50s & 60s, and too many men were accepted who were attracted to the power of the position rather than to vocation as a servant leader.

FishChrysallis, your own language and lack of civility speaks volumes about your faith life. If anyone is guilty of "blatant lies" it is yourself.

Steve Baldwin, the Executive Director of the Council for National Policy in Washington, D.C., says that, "Overwhelming evidence supports the belief that homosexuality is a sexual deviancy often accompanied by disorders that have dire consequences for our culture..."

Baldwin says that his research not only "confirms that homosexuals molest children at a rate vastly higher than heterosexuals," [a point confirmed by FBI statistics], but it found that "the mainstream homosexual culture" even "commonly promotes sex with children."

During his research, he also found:

The Journal of Homosexuality recently published a special double-issue entitled, 'Male Intergenerational Intimacy,' containing many articles portraying sex between men and minor boys as loving relationships. One article said parents should look upon the pedophile who loves their son 'not as a rival or competitor, not as a theft of their property, but as a partner in the boy's upbringing, someone to be welcomed into their home.'

In 1995 the homosexual magazine 'Guide' said, 'We can be proud that the gay movement has been home to the few voices who have had the courage to say out loud that children are naturally sexual' and 'deserve the right to sexual expression with whoever they choose. …' The article went on to say: 'Instead of fearing being labeled pedophiles, we must proudly proclaim that sex is good, including children's sexuality … we must do it for the children's sake.'

Larry Kramer, the founder of ACT-UP, a noted homosexual activist group, wrote in his book, 'Report from the Holocaust: The Making of an AIDS Activist': 'In those instances where children do have sex with their homosexual elders, be they teachers or anyone else, I submit that often, very often, the child desires the activity, and perhaps even solicits it.'

In a study of advertisements in the influential homosexual newspaper, The Advocate, Reisman found ads for a 'Penetrable Boy Doll … available in three provocative positions. She also found that the number of erotic boy images in each issue of The Advocate averaged 14.

Homosexual newspapers and travel publications advertise prominently for countries where boy prostitution is heavy, such as Burma, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

By the way, the John Jay Study confirmed that most of the abuse committed by priests was homosexual in nature.

FISH asserts that, "Decriminalizing pedophilia isn't at all what the group B4U-ACT is about.."

Really? LifeSiteNews has reported that on its website, "B4U-ACT classifies pedophilia as simply another sexual orientation and decries the ‘stigma’ attached to pedophilia, observing: ‘No one chooses to be emotionally and sexually attracted to children or adolescents. The cause is unknown; in fact, the development of attraction to adults is not understood.’ The group says that it does not advocate treatment to change feelings of attraction to children or adolescents."

Pedophilia is simply "another sexual orientation"? And this woman considers herself a Christian?

God help her!
