I have to disagree. If homosexuals can change so can pedophiles. They are both a mental illness.
I have friends in a prison ministry and pedophiles are told in prison counseling to accept who they are as they cannot change. They are urged to control it. They do not receive real treatment. They aren't told it's a sickness. So government employees are encouraging them to "accept themselves" and also to "admit they are homosexual".
Good points. I have just read over the years that pedophiles never are rehabilitated. But I know that God can work miracles in peoples’ lives.
And if pedophiles or homosexuals are told “you’re born that way and cannot change” it’s pure evil. Pure evil. It’s condemning them to hell.
