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.
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.
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.
God can bring down the curtain any time now.
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.
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...
God can bring down the curtain any time now.
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?
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.
Good question. Someone plans on making money off this stuff - - OR taxpayers are getting stung by one more 'nonprofit' scam...
This bunch of monsters needs to experience a little thunder.
Not all of us.
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.
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.
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.
He was condemning it.
