Gawker article takes sympathetic look at pedophiles
Twitchy.com ^ | 9-8-12 | Twitchy Staff

Fox News analyst Kirsten Powers is only one of many who are “super troubled” by an article published yesterday by Gawker which takes a sympathetic look at pedophiles. And by “sympathetic,” we mean depraved.

Because I believe you should not believe anything you cannot read for yourself, you will find the Gawker article here.

But a word of warning: It will make you sick and very, very angry.

I’m very sympathetic to them when they’re down on the ground after some dad beats the crap out of them. Remember that dad in Texas that beat to death that one guy who molested his 4yo daughter? It’s the Libs that are trying to give us “The New Norm” and the Dems who’ll pass laws allowing it.

I saw this coming a long, long time ago. I saw a news show once where some molesters said that once the people had accepted the homosexuals, they were going to use the same tactics that the homos used to get the normal people to show them some love.

Super disappointed at where the practice of psychology has gone. Without a sane philosophy behind it it is like the blind leading the partly sighted into ditches. I’d damn the pedophile’s psychologist in that story even more than the pedophile, since the latter realized he had done wrong while the former only wanted to find a way the pedophile could indulge. That is not compassion. It is a devil’s trick.

Plenty of people have a sympathetic, look the other way attitude concerning pedophiles. Just say something bad about Penn St and their situation and they’ll swarm like roaches

Just the fact that a group such as NAMBLA is allowed to still exist is sickening. This cannot continue to be ignored

They have already made kid sex normal in school and media so why not make it okay for them to have sex with adults?

Who didn’t this coming down the slippery slope when Obama amin mails condoms to 11 year olds??

How many people now think its okay for two 13 year olds to have sex? If they are mature enough for sex, why not with adults?

What if they brainwash the kid (schools, MSM) into saying they wanted it? How many idjits will think thats okay too?

If you want to get NEXT LEVEL sick and angry, check out this documentary by Louis Theroux about the California pedo facility in Coalinga, California:

Louis Theroux - A Place for Paedophiles

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z29LbVcOARo&feature=related

(File under Exhibit B in the case of Why I Will Always Have a German Shepherd and Other Means of Self Defense. Of course Exhibit A is a series of documentaries about California’s Catch & Release program for rapists & murderers like Larry Singleton, Ted Bundy, et al).

If you mean the loss of all those titles and such, yeah, I heard someone say that was going too far. They couldn't seem to understand this was something that had been going on for years and the people who knew about it (including Paterno) had a clear responsibility to stop it and yet made the conscious choice to do nothing.

If the fans, etc, want to place blame, they should place it where it belongs, and that is not with the NCAA (those are the guys who took the titles right?).

Here’s hoping that Kristen Powers and her ilk - disgusted by the evil extremists in their midst - will begin to see that they have more in common with the people they’ve been vilifying (conservatives) all these years.

Juan Williams got a wake-up call. Kristen has just gotten hers. I’d like to believe that in moments of their own solitude they’re beginning to question the party live they’ve been towing all these years.

This is why you should never let another law in your city, state pass with the words “sexual orientation” in it. Pedophilia and Beastiality are “sexual orientations” it is only a matter of time before these sickos get off on this technicality. This whole stupidity of “you can’t legislate morality” is what got us into this mess. The fact of the matter is we have legislated morality from day one of our Republic!

I do not want to be in a country that allows this type of behavior to even be pondered or studied

people like this ... and Kevin Jennings... need to be ground into paste and flushed into the sewer

Read the article. Generally disgusting example of apologetics.

However.

It drew one distinction that I think is quite important. Pedophilia, in its true meaning, does not refer to the act of child molestation but rather to a consistent attitude or orientation towards sexual attraction to pre-pubescent children. We don’t generally get to choose our phobias, and we don’t generally get to make concious choices about our philias either.

What we do get to do is decide whether to act on our philias. And a pedophile (in the sense of someone who has the inclination or orientation) who makes the conscious choice not to act on his very strong inclinations is in some sense admirable. Though I wouldn’t recommend him as a baby-sitter.

It is possible both phobias and philias can be overcome with therapy, but in general the notion that “therapy” can cure anything is vastly overblown.

Pedophilia is also very different from similar sexual attraction to young post-pubescent people. We make a common mistake in this country of mixing up the legal notion of age of consent with pedophilia. Pubescence is a scientific fact, age of consent is a legal construct. The two have little to do with each other.

Now don’t get me wrong. I’m fully in favor of stiff penalties for sex with underage children, but some weirdo pursuing a 14 year old girl is not a pedophile. A sicko who should have his head kicked in, but not a pedophile.

There are also almost certainly people who are not pedophiles in the sense of exclusive attraction to children who are perfectly willing to do a child for kicks when convenient. If anything, such a person is even more evil than the pedophile who fails to control his urges.

Anyone who thought it would stop with homosexuality doesn’t understand the nature of sin and cultural degradation.

We just saw thousands applauding statements of support for people who just wanted to be married to the one they love. You are right they will use the same tactics. I heard several months ago that they want to change the term pedophile to Minor Attracted Person. Pedophile will become a politically incorrect word and using it will make you a hater. Articles like this will become more and more common and people will believe they are just misunderstood victims and we must preserve their rights.

“For I say unto you He that would lead a child into sin, better that he tie a milestone around his neck and drown himself in the sea’’. The judgement given by any court to a pedophile in this world pales in comparison to the judgement that will be given in the next.

The term exists already. It’s called “Inter-generational love’’.

If you can justify the perversion of same sex marriage, approval of pedophilia isn’t far behind—next up, bestiality and marriage to dogs, cats and pigs.

Many deal with criminal and destructive temptations. It is part of the human condition and those who act on their temptations end up ruined either as a natural consequences (self loathing, poverty, victims, addiction and disease) or legal consequence. When a man acts on the call of temptation just once, the next time it is harder to resist.

Your notion that fourteen year old girls are not children sexually, is wrong. Sexual activity is both a mental and physical caculation. A man or woman sexually pursuing teens who are not mentally mature enough to caculate the manuplation and results of entering into a sexual relationship with an adult, are sexually pursing children. Children are, by nature and by condition of dependence, unequal players in relations with adults. Adults have too much power over children to be permitted to pursue them for sexual favors/payments.

I don’t even think adults should be permitted to approach minors verbally or in arts in a adult sexual advocacy way. That permission we permitted homosex activists leads to perverts crossing the line. We are seeing perverts sexually interacting with children in the public schools more now than ever.

Children should be permitted to develop sexually without adult interference beyond warnings of consequences (disease, abuse, pregnancy, etc.) which they don’t know for lack of experience. Physically, a child may be ready for sex, but not mentally because they are not mature adults. Therefore, the sexual relationship between a fourteen year old and adult can not be “consentual.” But all this is the thinking and operation of a Western civilization.

What is going to happen is that global liberal elitists are going to move on to opppress resistence towads any and all sexual behaviors. Raping your kid will be one in a long string of offences they will perform whether you like it or not. Perverts don’t care what you think about it. They will assert their right to enter your house and do it right on your property (see homos forcing normal people to host their sexual activity on their property.) Adultery - family wrecking - was once taboo and illegal.

They want the freedom to do whatever they want to do sexually to anyone, at their whim. They are going to have to be killed because a defeated Western society won’t stop them. But given what they are doing now by grooming kids for sex, of even a depraved and highly diseased nature, with adults in public schools and without parental objection, I do not think people will stop them when they “progress” to raping other people’s pets, children, husbands and wives in the name of sex desires and rights.

In US prisons Americans accept men raping men and many even cheer it on. In muslim societies, men are permitted to rape children and women. If they object, the victims are punished. They marry children. They have multiple wives. It will be justified here as rights within multiculturalism. Homo pervert “sex experts” are keen about justifying everything on what was considered normal in ancient Roman and Greek societies before the evil Christians came along and ruined all the fun.

Sexual perversion is empowered by little openings that turn into flood gates. Forcing homosexuality on the society opened the floodgates.
