(CNSNews.com) - In a step critics charge could result in decriminalizing sexual contact between adults and children, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) recently sponsored a symposium in which participants discussed the removal of pedophilia from an upcoming edition of the psychiatric manual of mental disorders.
Psychiatrists attending an annual APA convention May 19 in San Francisco proposed removing several long-recognized categories of mental illness - including pedophilia, exhibitionism, fetishism, transvestism, voyeurism and sadomasochism - from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
it wasn't in the newspaper, it was a non-scientific poll on their website. are you trying to be deceptive or are you just dim?
the AP story reports: "opinion polls indicate a slight majority of Canadians favor legalizing same-sex marriages"
The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground.
"My lords," he said, "please turn aside to your servant's house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning."
"No," they answered, "we will spend the night in the square."
But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom-both young and old-surrounded the house.
They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them."
Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing. Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don't do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof."
"Get out of our way," they replied. And they said, "This fellow came here as an alien, and now he wants to play the judge! We'll treat you worse than them." They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door. But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door. Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.
The two men said to Lot, "Do you have anyone else here-sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the LORD against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it."
So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were pledged to marry his daughters. He said, "Hurry and get out of this place, because the LORD is about to destroy the city!" But his sons-in-law thought he was joking.
With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, "Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished."
When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the LORD was merciful to them. As soon as they had brought them out, one of them said, "Flee for your lives! Don't look back, and don't stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!"
But Lot said to them, "No, my lords, please! Your servant has found favor in your eyes, and you have shown great kindness to me in sparing my life. But I can't flee to the mountains; this disaster will overtake me, and I'll die. Look, here is a town near enough to run to, and it is small. Let me flee to it-it is very small, isn't it? Then my life will be spared."
He said to him, "Very well, I will grant this request too; I will not overthrow the town you speak of. But flee there quickly, because I cannot do anything until you reach it." (That is why the town was called Zoar.) By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land. Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah-from the LORD out of the heavens. Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, including all those living in the cities-and also the vegetation in the land. But Lot's wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.
They're harming children, adults with little to no moral sense, and themselves.
For example, they can adopt children, legally.
This practice, normalized by law, sets a horrible example for all children, not just the poor children who will be placed under their care.
Finally, they're harming themselves by engaging in unnatural and intrinsically evil acts. This physical and mental harm is ratified and normalized by law.

Rule #1: NEVER apologize for being against homosexuality and the homosexual agenda. It will look like you are trying to appease homosexuals and their sympathizers/defenders, which is something they neither need nor deserve.
Moreover, why in the name of God should we have to pay lip service to people who knowingly and willingly engage in behavior they know is abnormal, immoral, and dangerous(and if that is not enough, they are openly going after our children)?
Rule #2: There is no such thing as homophobia. Never has been. Never will be.
You mean like the ones who surrounded Lot's home and subsequently tried to break in for the sole purpose of having sex with Lot's son?
Ivan, sweetie, THEY WERE STRUCK BLIND, KILLED AND SENT TO HELL BY GOD!
In fact, homosexuality is one the few sins to be specifically condemned in both the Old and New Testaments.
Take the time to actually read the Bible instead of just paying reference to it.

Canada Court Redefines Marriage to Include Gays
Tue June 10, 2003 11:38 AM ET
OTTAWA (Reuters) - An Ontario court set aside the heterosexual definition of marriage on Tuesday with immediate effect and ordered the Toronto city clerk to issue marriage licenses to several gay couples who had applied for them.
The decision was one of three decisions expected this year by appeals courts in provinces across the country, and it was not clear whether the federal government would appeal it or ask for a stay of the decision.
A decision in May by a British Columbia appeals court had given the federal government until July 2004 to change its law to include homosexual marriages, and Justice Minister Martin Cauchon said he was mulling an appeal.
But the Ontario court ruled that to wait would deny the couples their constitutional rights, and it redefined the common law definition of marriage as "the voluntary union for life of two persons to the exclusion of all others."
In so doing it substituted "two persons" for "one man and one woman."
The three-person court ruled that the law limiting marriage to heterosexuals violated the 1982 Charter of Rights and Freedoms, part of the Canadian Constitution.
"The common law definition of marriage is inconsistent with the Charter to the extent that it excludes same-sex couples," the court ruled.
Toronto to Start Issuing Gay Marriage Licenses
Cauchon had asked the House of Commons justice committee to conduct hearings across the country on what should be done about the definition of marriage, and the committee is currently deliberating possible recommendations.
Committee member Vic Toews of the opposition Canadian Alliance, an opponent of gay marriage, asked Cauchon last week to launch an urgent appeal to the Supreme Court so that the lower courts do not end up preempting what he said was an issue for Parliament to decide.
