BALTIMORE, MD, August 23, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) Pro-family advocates who attended a controversial pro-pedophilia conference in Baltimore last week say they were profoundly shaken by what they saw and heard.
As a former law enforcement officer Ive dealt with situations involving suicide, homicide and other violence. That said, Ive never felt the level of spiritual oppression and evil that I felt in that room, Liberty Counsel Action Vice President Matt Barber told LifeSiteNews.
These mental health professionals, and self-described pedophile and gay activists were inexplicably able to cavalierly discuss, in an almost dismissive way, the idea of child rape, Barber said. They used flowery, euphemistic psychobabble to give quasi-scientific cover to a discussion about the worst kind of perversion.
The organization B4U-ACT sponsored the event in Baltimore last week, which was attended by pro-pedophile activists and mental health professionals. The conference examined the ways in which minor-attracted persons could be involved in a revision of the American Psychological Association (APA) classification of pedophilia.
Conference panelists included Fred Berlin of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Renee Sorentino of Harvard Medical School, John Sadler of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, and John Breslow of the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Speakers addressed the around 50 individuals in attendance on themes ranging from the notion that pedophiles are unfairly stigmatized and demonized by society to the idea that children are not inherently unable to consent to sex with an adult. Also discussed were arguments that an adults desire to have sex with children is normative and that the APAs Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) ignores the fact that pedophiles have feelings of love and romance for children in the same way adult heterosexuals and homosexuals have romantic feelings for one another.
In an interview with LifeSiteNews (LSN), Liberty University Visiting Professor of Law Judith Reisman, who attended the conference, said that post the landmark Lawrence v. Texas decision in 2003, paraphrasing Justice Antonin Scalia, everything goes.
I go into detail on this in my last book, Sexual Sabotage, she said. Following Alfred Kinsey sexologists began to occupy our schools, so that educated professionals have largely been trained to be a form of sexual anarchists.
Although the stupidity of advocating harmless amoral sexuality overwhelms us daily, our arrogant educated populations say morality has no place in our sexual lives, Reisman said. Just as AIDS is a natural outgrowth of amoral sexual education and media, so too is child sexual abuse. We are breeding a new human character and child sexual abuse is increasingly part of that character.
I, for one, have had enough, Barber told LifeSiteNews. These sexual anarchists, whatever their perverse stripe, need to leave our children alone and let kids be kids.
They know that to own the future, they must own the minds of our children, he said. Hence, groups like B4U-ACT, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, Planned Parenthood and the like, utilize academia, from pre-school to post-graduate, in order to brainwash and indoctrinate.
As previously reported by LSN, B4U-ACT classifies pedophilia as simply another sexual orientation and decries the stigma attached to pedophilia. B4U-ACT science director Howard Kline has criticized the definition of pedophilia by the American Psychological Association, describing its treatment of minor-attracted persons as inaccurate and misleading.
Similar lobbying, then by homosexual activists, led to the declassification of homosexuality as a mental disorder in 1973 in the DSM. As a result of the DSM declassification, debate regarding homosexuality and the many documented harms associated with the homosexual lifestyle has been all but shut down in academic psychological circles.
“Speakers addressed themes ranging from the notion that pedophiles are unfairly stigmatized and demonized by society.”
Sick bastards.I am sure NAMBLA was there.
And Hollywood cheered.
I bet George Soros help pay for this !
> Who is paying for this abomination?
> Conferences dont just happen.
a huge stain on the City of Baltimore to even be hosting such a thing
Who would even admit to such a thing?
How can there even be such a group?
How can they get away with meeting anywhere other than in
a crack house basement?
What's next, renting a ballroom at the Sheraton for your human sacrifice event? or Having meetings and classes on how to properly behead infidels? (If you have seen any of the beheading videos, you understand how these training sessions are desperately needed).
Homosexuality has been normalized.
What is to stop the pedos? A “moral” line in the sand?
Too late for that.
They have been setting this up for years with all of the sexual imagery they’ve been shoving at kids.
Does anybody STILL believe that abortion and sexual “liberation” were not the top of a very steep and slippery slope?
On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “The Wages of Sin is Death.”
Get a whole generation of kids hooked on sex and “sex talk” and they grow up with the idea that sex is completely ok at any age with anyone.
Their kids are now left completely defenseless. The gay agenda was just the first wave. Now the pedos will take their shot.
“I know plenty of gay people who despise pedophilia. Id like to hear them decry this.”
What they say has nothing to do with what they believe and seek. For years the “gay people” welcomed Nambla to march in their pride parades. This was common practice until the normal public openly objected to this deviance shoving it back in the closet. Molesting young boys is an obsession with male homosexuals and has been since ancient Rome.
hmmmmm...perverts & deviants condemning perversion & deviancy. Interesting...
Hmmmmm The case of the missing tag line.... http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2768070/posts?page=34#34

This is the next “Liberation” movement. Get ready. Because of the imminent triumph of same-sex marriage these monsters are emboldened, and because of the 14th Amendment they will eventually triumph as well. All it takes is one state to len in their favor and all the dominoes will fall their way.

Proof that either we have to take action to reverse the leap into the steaming abyss, or we have only ourselves to blame. These people are pure, unadulterated evil, and by saying and doing nothing, we partake of that evil. To say nothing is to speak, to do nothing is to act. These evil disgusting sick perverts are in our schools, our universities, board rooms, foundations, and every level of government. Just yesterday I pinged an article about how the Department of "Health and Human Services" is giving advice about how children and babies are sexual beings. Hand in hand with this disgusting perversion.
DSM = “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is published by the American Psychiatric Association and provides a common language and standard criteria for the classification of mental disorders.”

Oops - one minute apart. Good you did it because I forgot to add the H.A. list.
"an adults desire to have sex with children is 'normative'"Normative" (I had to look it up): creating standards. It appears that these people are attempting to do exactly that.
"pedophiles 'have feelings of love and romance for children' in the same way adult heterosexuals and homosexuals have romantic feelings for one another.Perhaps so. Perhaps not. However in either case this is beside the points that pedophilia is harmful to children and that pedophilia and homosexuality are diseases.
Both homosexuality and pedophilia are abnormal and pathological. Each is a disease caused by a lesion in the reproductive system.
A proclamation to the contrary--as by some organization such as the American Psychological Association--will not alter this.
Homosexuality and pedophilia are not the same.
As long as homosexuality involves only consenting adults in private, it is compensated and warrents no outside interference.
Pedophilia, on the other hand, involves an assault on children--who cannot give informed consent--and is likely to injure the reproductive system of the child in the manner of any other communicable disease. Therefore children must be protected from pedophiles.
The fact that many people can and sometimes do engage in homosexual activity does not change the fact that homsexuality is a disease any more than the fact that many people can and sometimes do drink alcohol changes the fact that alcoholism is a disease or that many people can be and sometimes are exposed to communicable diseases (e.g. tuberculosis) without becoming infected (i.e. without developing a lesion) changes the fact that tuberculosis is a disease.
