Skip to comments.You Knew it was Coming: “Experts” Say Pedophilia is a Sexual Orientation – Hard-wired at Birth
Posted on 12/28/2013 3:47:29 AM PST by IbJensen
First, let me say that I dont want to hear anything from the homosexuals, their supporters, supporters of polygamy or any other perversion of God ordained sexuality. We told you this was coming and it has arrived. Researchers with Canadas Centre for Addiction and Mental Health have concluded, after a decade of research, that pedophilia is a deep-rooted, unchangeable predisposition.
The Toronto Star reports:
Pedophilia has been widely viewed as a psychological disorder triggered by early childhood trauma.
Now, many experts see it as a biologically rooted condition that does not change like a sexual orientation thanks largely to a decade of research by Dr. James Cantor at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.
Cantors team has found that pedophiles share a number of physical characteristics, including differences in brain wiring. Its now thought that about 1 to 5 per cent of men are pedophiles, meaning they are primarily attracted to children.
These findings have been widely accepted among scientists, but have had little impact on social attitudes or law. However, we are left with the alarming question: if some men are born pedophiles, what should society do with them?
Well, what do you suppose those who have kept their pedophilia under control to some extent, at least keeping it only in their thoughts? They are doing the same thing the homosexuals are doing: calling for societal acceptance, and a cry for special rights will soon be accompanying this demand.
Let me say that I realize all of us face different temptations. Some are weaker in areas that others are not. For those that fight against their temptations, whether homosexuality, pedophilia, fornication, pornography, adultery or a myriad of other sins, let me say thank you. Thank you for not justifying your lusts and thank you for seeking to keep them under control. The Bible commands us to repent of these lusts, as well as any action based on them, and Jesus Christ is a Savior of sinners from sin.
However, to accept that this is biological in nature is to miss the aspect of sin. After all, even these that are claiming this is from birth cannot prove it. As my friend Shea Bernard wrote, concerning homosexuality, Dr. Francis S. Collins, head of the Human Genome Project, along with his team of over 150 of the top geneticists in the world, who sequenced and decoded the human genome, three years ahead of schedule, have emphatically said, ad nauseam, that there is NO gay gene. To that I would add that there was no discovery of a pedophilia gene either. It may come as a surprise, but there are no thieve genes, murderer genes, or liar genes. This is a spiritual issue and deals with the mind.
However, Cantor wants us to believe it is biological. Cantor says of pedophilia: Its either purely biological or a mix of biological and experiential.
Cantor and his former colleague, Michael Seto, are careful to differentiate between pedophiles and sex offenders. The first, obviously has to do with the mental part and the second is the criminal action part.
So, how are they seeking to help those in the first category? A website, of course. Enter Virtuous Pedophiles. Its a website for pedophiles who have never molested children, but do have an attraction for them.
One individual that was pointed to in the article in the Star was a man by the name of Ethan Edwards, who at the age of 50 found he could no longer suppress his desires and simply look at young girls in a protective manner. Edwards is the co-founder of Virtuous Pedophiles.
I realized that young girls certainly took my breath away, more than grown-ups are usually charmed by kids, Edwards said.
Edwards claims that his site desires to prevent child abuse, by reducing the stigma against non-offending pedophiles. We do not choose to be attracted to children, and we cannot make that attraction go away. But we can resist the temptation to abuse children sexually, and many of us present no danger to children whatsoever. Yet we are despised for having a sexual attraction that we did not choose, cannot change, and successfully resist.
While Im happy to hear that Edwards and others acknowledge their problem, see it as a problem and seek to keep it from being a problem for young children, it is those like Cantor and Seto that seek to justify the mental state and actions by claiming people are just born this way that concern me even more. This is the same argument being used by the militant homosexuals to advance their agenda in this country.
Those who believe this trash pseudo-science are just sinners who want to justify their immoral behavior like homosexuals and the bad thing is, they will get by with it because we have voted into power those who are fundamentally immoral and Politically Correct. The current occupant of the White Hut comes to mind.
A sinful choice that has nothing to do with genetics!
Killing a pervert, who has molested one of mine is “hard wired in me from birth”
I’m sure rape is hard-wired, too.
And while we are at it, let’s throw racism in there.
Resposibility ............a word not used since
I wonder when MLB will have its first Pedophile Night featuring Michael Jackson bobblehead giveaways and fireworks after the game.
That will not survive the test. There are thousands that have gained victory over this sin (and it isn't easy), just as there are with homosexuality. That alone refutes the study. You can't have it both ways.
Granted, I just skimmed through the article, but my question..
What ages, victim and perpetrator, defines pedophilia?
Science has to say there is no solution because they are spiritually void.
Even though we are all born in sin, there is a way to battle it, through Christ. If you don’t believe this, then you are pretty much defeated. The only choice is to throw up your hands and say you can’t change the “hard wiring”.
What a horrible, hopeless message to tell the world.
“Bank Robbers hard wired. . . .”
And let’s not forget all those yutes who engage in knockout “games”. As a matter of fact, I’m sure every islamist terrorist have genetically evolved to torture, rape and murder all non believers.
Maybe we’re hard-wired homophobes?
This is a spiritual issue and deals with the mind.Those afflicted have to pray (and confess!) continually, and if that doesn't work, beg the Lord to take their eyes.
Give em an inch and they think their a ruler. Sorry—if this is true, pedophilia should be a capital crime and those who suffer from the illness put to sleep as quickly as possible.
I would say that common sense or a God-given conscience dictates that.
All who practice homosexuality and lesbianism are potential pedophiles because as they become more and more infested with their sinful behavior all barriers fall. Their manifesto dictates their insatiable desire for youngsters be satisfied over and over again.
Westerners (who at one time or another were adherents of the Judeo-Christian ethic) adherents of sodomy are very like the Muslims when it comes to committing lewd acts on innocents. That, of course, is the evil foundation upon which Islam is based that such acts can be performed without losing their ‘get into paradise free’ card.
That being said, those American perverts who engage in pedophilia will go to hell, but they will meet their Muslim counterparts there and be able to associate with them for all eternity.
The big problem for America society is that once they’ve fulfilled their lust on an innocent they often murder the reminder of their sinful crime. If the victim lives the reminder of the violation remains.
Send People Like Michael Jackson To Lifetime Halfway Houses In Alaska

California teachers union kills anti-pedophile law
This ‘cartoon’ nails the problem most succinctly.
What you are referring to as racism has absolutely nothing to do with pedophilia.
You’ve been paying entirely too much attention to Sharpton.
I would just say in response that in the case of homosexual behavior a real introduction to God and sincere repentence can indeed erase that sin from one’s soul.
Unfortunately for the despoilers of children there is only the millstone. Pedophiles are in a class by themselves.
