Evilí: Attendees at prominent pro-pedophilia conference horrified by sessions
LifeSiteNews ^ | 08/23/20011 | Jeremy Kryn

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 I’ve dealt with situations involving suicide, homicide and other violence. That said, I’ve 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 adult’s desire to have sex with children is “normative” and that the APA’s 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.

Some background on B4U-ACT:

Michael Melsheimer, a homosexual who appears to have died of an AIDS-related illness in 2010, was a co-founder of B4U-ACT, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization located in Maryland.

Melsheimer had been convicted in the past of sex offenses. The only online information source on this, Wikisposure, reports that he "served prison time for sexually assaulting two young boys when he was the director of the Camden YMCA" and that he became an activist upon release from prison in 1986.

I think we’ve about reached the Sodom and Gomorrah level.

This is a perfect time for gay people to stand up against this. I know plenty of gay people who despise pedophilia. I’d like to hear them decry this.

Don't hold your breath waiting. The homosexual "rights" movement and pedophile "rights" movement spring from the same root. Your homo acquaintances only pretend to object because they know that the inevitable public outcry against them would thwart their agenda if they expressed their true sentiments.

If anything, the advancement of pedophilia takes the heat off of activist homosexuals. They know that their perversion almost seems benign in comparison. Why wouldn't they be for it?

Science has no moral value, so in science there is no such thing as evil. If we are going to hand our Nation over to science as our God, abandoning our roots in the Bible we are going to end up with something that no good man can stand to live in, as no innocence or possesion will not be exploited and destroyed for anothers mans pleasure.

Science does not believe in innocence, love, joy, peace or God.

Those things are not scientific, and cannot be measured. However science, and our government is interested in the levels of attraction gay men have for what lengths of penis. That is measureable and is worth spending millions of tax dollars on.

Like Bob Dillon said, “You gotta serve somebody, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord, but your gonna have to serve somebody.

We better decide who we really want to serve. As another singer said, “When people decide to come out of the Closet rather than clean it, its a sign the judgement of God is going to fall.”

Lets clean up our acts guys, freedom is not more vauable than morality. If there is no morality, nobody is free.

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 suspect the people of Sodom were uncomfortable too when the line was crossed. I am not so worried about the line that people should be uncomfortable at, we crossed that a long time ago. It's the line that people cross that makes God react. That one you can't just roll over and go on business as usual.

Its that old earthquake, drought, blizzard, flood and storm thing when God is trying to get your attention to avoid the complete destruction for the sake of mankind thing. Something like the last 10 years of our history...

Normally, I would accuse you of narrowness of perspective with regard to the world stage if it were not for the nearly universal nature of the perversion that is the case in the world. America is not the end all, be all of nations in the drama of last days prophesy. Many societies have been perverse beyond description, and were snuffed out as a result. But they were anomalies surrounded by saner jurisdictions.

Not any more. Even in remote nations of Africa which still contain a vestige of cultural decency, the push by homo groups for perversion (the lifting of all sodomy laws) is crushing. They are being literally threatened by the Ungodly Nations (UN) into accepting perversion wholesale.

I see the US as a barometer. When we get to that stage, you know it’s bad because it’s so prevalent elsewhere.

Good point. We will likely be the last to fall. But, surprisingly, the former Soviet Union seems to be culturally more conservative than us now.

Was Moynihan endorsing this movement toward deviancy, or was he commenting on it?

People may get worked up over Obama, wars, and deficits, but this sort of wickedness is the real threat to our nation. A country that uses its freedom to indulge in such depravity will eventually lose that freedom.

No, the people I know, I’ve known for 30 years. These are people who will not be in a room alone with a child because they are so frightened of being accused of being a perv. A lot of gay men I know loathe both children - and pets.

The gay activists, of course, are the ones who have the agenda. Very crazy, dangerous people. Disgusting report from Baltimore. I’d really like to know where that conference was held.

Which goes to show that there's hope for us yet.

Who is paying for this abomination? Conferences don’t just happen.

Good question. Someone plans on making money off this stuff - - OR taxpayers are getting stung by one more 'nonprofit' scam...

You think they're going to backstab their buddies? Grow up. Watch the next gay pride(sic) parade and see where your gay acquaintances stand.

I’m sure they did the same thing back when they decided to re-classify homosexuality as normal.

Exactly right. The APA voted to erase homosexuality from their DSM with mobs of perverts screeching and howling outside the doors. An act of pure craven political cowardice destroying any vestige of scientific validity.

There is a pseudo-scientific journal, Paedika, published in Holland for years, that is devoted to normalizing pedophilia.

What is coming next is oh so predictable -
the “discovery” of a “pedophilia gene”, and an assertion that they are “born that way.”

There’s only one remedy for vile perverts like this who have achieved positions of power. It involves rope.
