Skip to comments.APA fending for pedophiles?
Posted on 08/19/2011 4:43:39 AM PDT by IbJensen
Several well-known researchers recently made unexpected arguments on pedophilia ...
Liberty Counsel Action's Matt Barber attended the conference and says he felt he was on a different planet, as the presenting professionals aimed to remove pedophilia from the American Psychiatric Association's (APA) "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders," (DSM). That would mean that pedophilia would no longer be considered a mental disorder.
"The entire focus of the event was on the victimhood of the pedophile," Barber accounts. There was "very little concern for the children who are the victims of these individuals when they are raped, who these individuals lust after."
And he says the experts' discussions were focused on "destigmatizing pedophilia ... removing the stigma, and [getting] the public to stop demonizing pedophiles."
But the attorney reports that the APA is already moving toward declassifying pedophilia as a mental disorder "by saying that a pedophile is only a pedophile in their latest DSM ... if they are distressed by their attractions or behaviors."
So Barber decides that would bring the APA one step closer to de-classifying pedophilia as a mental disorder, as they did homosexuality in the 1970s.
Concerning that issue, the APA board has also voted unanimously to endorse homosexual "marriage," which comes as no surprise to one traditional marriage activist, since the organization has contributed to 11 amicus briefs since 2004 in court cases that favor same-sex marriage.

"For them to say that opposition to same-sex marriage is causing psychological distress among lesbians and gays, I mean these guys have it completely backward," LaBarbera contends. "The reality is that self-described homosexuals and lesbians, they do have psychological problems because homosexuality is a perversion."

Pedophiles should be injected and buried. They will always be ready to prey on children. The image of defenceless children are imbedded in their evil brains. They like it.
Membership in the APA should be classified as a mental disorder.
This is exactly the same thing they did with HOMOSEXUALITY in the the 70’s. It’s definitely not good science but rather gross immorality.
We need more parents like this to send a message!
No Trial For Mom Who Shot Alleged Molester
Grand Jury Refuses To Indict
COVINGTON, Ky. — A woman accused of shooting a man who allegedly molested her son will not go to trial.
On Friday, a grand jury in Kenton County decided not to indict the woman, who shot Larry Howell in November, WLWT Eyewitness News 5 reported.
WLWT is not naming the woman to protect the identity of her son.
The woman was charged with one count of first-degree assault, and assault under extreme emotional disturbance.
Prosecutors said Friday that they will not present the charges a second time to the grand jury, which effectively ends the case against her.
Howell, of Erlanger, Ky., has been charged with nine counts of sodomy.
Investigators believe that Howell molested as many as 20 boys between the ages of 12 and 15. Howell allegedly lured children to his home in Erlanger with gifts and money in exchange for sexual favors, WLWT reported.
Two days after his Nov. 30, 2001, arrest, the woman shot Howell in the groin, just moments after he was released from jail on bond. She admitted to the shooting in court, WLWT reported.
Howell spent several days in the hospital, then returned to jail.
After Howell was shot, parents in the community rallied their support behind the woman and raised money to bail her out of prison.
I’m beginning to believe pedophilia is a far bigger problem than I ever suspected. It seems unusual if we DON’T see a daily article about child porn arrests, teachers seducing children, or sexy clothing for your four-year-old.
Perhaps the reason we don’t hear too much about this evil is that most of the pedophiles are imbedded in the MSM and the evil regime that is ruling and ruining our lives.
I am not normally a violent person at all unless its for self defense, I tend to be the live and let live type who sill stand his ground but not be willing to throw the first insult or punch in any confrontation.
That being said as the father of three wonderful children who are growing up fast, two of my daughters have steady boyfriends now I’m thinking more of being a grandfather as well as a father. If this sh*t they are saying is true and they are seriously thinking of relaxing the standards of pedophilia in the legal sense then I will officially go on record as saying I will gladly spend the rest of my life in jail if someone did this to my family.
There are only a few things that will cause me to go postal at the drop of a hat, and the top of that list is when some pervert satisfies his lust on an innocent child. If that person is now being looked upon as someone deserving of pity instead of as the monster they are then I will gladly bring justice to them no matter what the consequences to myself.
The association is just catching up with Wilhelm Reich’s crazy beliefs.
When ignorance and timidity let the liberals grant one perversion special rights many of us said this opens the door for all perversions. We were called homophobes, bigots and worse.
Soon, no form of societal degradation will ever be off limits.
Welcome to society by the lowest common denominator.
No morals, just potential voters.
Psychiatry as a criminal enterprise....
I would have a moral dilemma shooting a burglar. If it was practicable I would take him down by hand. I don’t like to kill spiders; they serve a purpose by eating flies. But if I found someone raping a toddler, I would remove him from life with no more afterthought than twisting the cap from a Coke bottle. Call me crazy.
