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.
God have mercy on me. The days of the US are drawing to a close.
Many libertarians have the same view on other things, and quite a few that I have met have a hard time saying pedophilia is wrong (morals and such).
The fall of great civilizations is preceded my moral debauchery of all forms.
Examine the fall of the Roman Empire. The liberal ruling class really developed a taste for young prepubescent boys.
Today the descendants of these same boys piss on the stones of a fallen empire.
History has a way of repeating itself.
Their kids are now left completely defenseless. The gay agenda was just the first wave. Now the pedos will take their shot.
Yes, but a major line would be crossed - one that's going to make a lot of people mightily uncomfortable, to put it mildly. I don't see how the pro-pedos can do it unless there's an outpouring of salesmanship pushing the notion that pedophiles have been victimized by society.
I remember, back in the good old days, when conservatives worried that sex ed would lead to teenagers and pubescents recklessly making it with each other! Those days seem innocent now.
They understand just fine. They just do not care.
in their minds it is far worse to be a traditional heterosexual in a stable marriage with a family.
Man.........You GOT THAT RIGHT! I don’t remember the exact quote but my recollection is that Jesus got a special bad punishment for people that mess with kids!
I am becoming convinced that the destroyers of our culture are watching conservative sites to get ideas about what to destroy next. They look for what bugs us the most and promote it. Call me paranoid. I don’t even care.
“To be sure, pedophelia will become the next token cause ... headed up by some group of celebrities,”
Let them try it. It will be a bridge to far for even today’s America. Someone could have gone to that pedophile conference with an “assault weapon” and mowed them all down, and I think the state would be hard pressed to find a jury to convict them.
And when everything becomes "acceptable" we have reached the definition of perfect anarchy.
Now if you could get yourself on the perverts’ mailing list you might get advance warning about next year's conference and be able to disrupt it, but ask yourself, do you really want your name on that sort of list?
"Normative" (I had to look it up): creating standards.
Yep. It's misused in that sentence, I'm guessing out of a desire to sound more academic. The sentence should read "an adult's desire to have sex with children is 'normal'", but that's just a little too blatant (and blatantly false) for the press releases. It's the actions of such organizations as the APA that these "activists" want to be normative, i.e. create new standards. And, of course and especially, the courts. The problem with that is that you don't just create new norms by propaganda and legal maneuvering.
I'm more than a little skeptical about the therapeutic model for this sort of thing anyway. Attraction to children is not, after all, a mental pathology that needs to be "decriminalized" because it's not illegal, just as wanting to kill someone is not illegal. Acting on either impulse is, and it ought to be.
I mention the two together because where social norms are infinitely plastic and at the mercy of grand declarations by psychologists and social activists, nothing may be prohibited, even murder. What one has at that point isn't a new, open society, what one has is no society at all.
It's perfectly understandable that perverts - I use the word precisely - wish to gain legal protection for their activities. It's also understandable that jaded academics may reach for something ever more sensational to publish in order to feed their own egos. Despite all the academic Newspeak there isn't really a great deal more to this conference than that.
We’ve reached the definition of Sodom, where they lost all perception of right and wrong.
“....unless there’s an outpouring of salesmanship pushing the notion that pedophiles have been victimized by society.’
Hollywood etc are good at making evil look good and good evil. They just need a few movies. They’re already trying it. Most have bombed but they’ll keep trying until they get the right formula, then it’ll be off to the races. Christians and otherwise conservative people line up and skip church to watch Sodomite sermons. They’ll do the same for the pedophile movies if Tom Hanks is in it.
50 years ago, who could have imagined sodomites would enjoy protective status and celebrated in every corner of America? When I was a kid, about 20 years ago, I couldn’t have imagined we’d be here.
Anyone with half a brain knew that once the homos defeated marriage and parental influence on their children’s morals and values to embrace adult homosexual indoctrination (in the name of comprehensive sex education), the “right” to an adult/child sexual oreintation was coming up next.
Homos are absoultely sexually obsessed with the young and beautiful bodies of children and they get excited over imposing themselves on other people’s children where they can’t do anything, legally, about it. Engineering legal sexual dominance over heterosexual adults is a sexual thrill.
King James Version (KJV)
6But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
For those who wish to remove what they consider a “stigma” from pedophilia, please be advised that I intend to enforce that stigma, with bullets, if necessary. Stay away from our children, you freaks.
The gay lobby is a fellow traveler. You won’t hear a word.
