I think the author is suggesting that they are deluded.
It's wonderful this man found peace. I pray that all confused individuals will do as well.
Why is it not a winning one? And, why cant you tell me why children cant consent. Ill concede your point should you ever make a valid argument.
No I'd say that Bush is trying the same crap I've been blaming him for the past 6 months and the Republican party for years. Trying to make the conservative party all inclusive. And if you do that, what's the difference between the Republicans and Democrats? Economic policy? Bush has picked up the tent and moved it to the middle of the road at least. When I voted for the man, my intent was to vote for someone that would bring a sense of family, belief in God, and strong moral values back to the White House. If I wanted someone nominating homosexuals and deviants I would have voted for Al Gore
The reason you see this change I fear is that a lot of citizens of their respective states have just given up. Remember the silent majority back in the 80s always spoken about? TV portrays homosexuality as the norm not because homosexuals are the norm in these United States, but because in 'enlightened' Hollywood it is the norm. The silent majority is tired of it, tired of money going to a sickness that while tragic, most of it goes to patients that caught the illness in immorality. I'm not saying that AIDS is necessarily a homosexual illness, but I just don't know of a large number of straight monogamous non drug using folks that catch AIDS
So you enjoy your change because no matter what you see in the media, I've got a real good feeling that most of the citizens of these United States do not or will they ever agree with you
They have already made the argument:
Some quotes from the The Pedophilia/Pedophile Education Web Site Mirror:
"Pedophilia is a sexual-orientation, like heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality, etc..."
"It is well-known that several famous persons were pedophiles. For example, the philosopher Plato, is thought to have been one. A pedophile can literally be just about anyone you know... Currently, pedophiles do not even remotely enjoy the same kinds of legal protection that other scapegoated groups (i.e. jews, gays, blacks, etc.) enjoy. Pedophiles often have tough and unhappy lives, since they are not permitted to express who they are... Realize that pedophiles are not going away! A person cannot change his/her orientation any more than a dalmation can avoid spots. Despite eons of attempts to "cure" pedophilia, no such remedy has yet been found..."
"A movement against pedophiles (who are a VERY small minority) is underway on the net. Free speech right must be held up, but sadly there are people too ignorant to see past their hate and who endorse the idea of us being banned from the web... Free web page sites like Geocities have already responded to the pressure of these Fascists by shutting down websites advocating "boy love", while hypocritically leaving up gay-lesbian homepages, and even proudly listing them as members of the community!..."
"The bottom line is pedophiles must no longer be victims of hate-crimes and censorship for their beliefs. We must unite and stand against intolerance until we are accepted like gays are. My being a pedophile is simply a sexual-orientation, nothing more. It has complications due to the guilt applied by society to pedophiles and kids, but it is still not my fault I am a pedophile-even if it is my choice. It is possible pedophilia is genetic, or it may simply be learned behavior, but in any case, I and others like me should not be attacked or flamed for our beliefs. We cannot help what we are, any more than you can!..."
Myth # 4 "Pedophilia is a mental illness"
"No more than homosexuality is! It is a sexual-orientation and a way of life, nothing more. The typical pedophile is a sane, upstanding member of society. He/she is no more crazy than you are. They do not belong in institutions-they need understanding."
Myth # 7 "Pedophilia is always treatable"
"It is NEVER truly treatable. One is who one is. I will always be a pedophile..."
"It is time for a new beginning. Pedophiles should be active in the community to educate the masses on this lifestyle. This is currently very hard to do, but it has to happen sometime. Hopefully, pedophiles will be able to personally inform children inside elementary schools about pedophiles & who they REALLY are. We need classes for this purpose where pedophiles show kids in school that we are not child molesters. We can teach them the truth that other misguided adults will not reveal..."
"This is the Pedophile Credo or Constitution. It supports who we are without apology, and stresses self-acceptance and other child-loving awareness. Read it and learn by heart! Supporters of the PLA (Pedophile Liberation Army) must read this document and defend it... [1..40]... Those were the 40 basic commandments for all pedophiles to live by. One day we will have equal rights under the law, but only if you stand up and refuse to be a victim! This is a war and we need to win it at all costs. Fight ignorance and hate. Pedophiles unite! Pedophiles must organize! Pedophiles must act with one voice... Join the PLA today!"
Notice the similarities between the Pedophile Agenda and the Homosexual Agenda?
'If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death;
Yep. Whatever people do in their own bedroom, barn, brothers bedroom... is their own business.
"I think the author is suggesting that they are deluded."
Yes that is exactly what the author Stephen Bennett said. It is based on his own, before and after, lifestyles. I'm not thinking we need to prove anything to Fethiye or Emmylou. Evidently they are not seeking any greater happiness than they have found already. So be it.
Just know that this author was there. He said he was on top of the world. Everything was perfect. But when Jesus came into his life and offered him forgiveness it completely changed him. The straiined relationships in his life were restored. He found a happiness that he hadn't even dreamed of before.
Bennett writes of his personal experience. Say "good for him" if you want. Say "I am happy enough, thank you very much". But you cannot say, "I'm just as happy as he is" because you just don't know.
I just want you to know that this is the most profound statement I have read on this thread. Statesmanlike, honest and complete. No one could ever argue or dismiss this point.
Most people consider the desire of a man to make love to another man's rump to be a serious disorder. You may not, but most people do. Most people consider such to be filthy and disgusting and highly perverted from the purpose of reproduction. Feces are full of germs, the rectum is clearly not designed for the use to which homosexual men put it, etc. etc. I'm not saying that people shouldn't have the right to do so if they want - just like a man can make love to his cows in his barn if he wants. But you can see why I don't want my kids to learn about such stuff.
Nice catch, JH2; tx.
I think I'll reserve my comments and simply wait to see if this sick b*stard actually tries it. Then I can have a "discussion" with him about it.
These people need to be identified, pursued and locked away in the furthest, darkest rat-infested hole we can find, and I'm not talking about San Francisco.
