Before I launch into this I have to tell you, I HATE the word “Blog.” I don’t really know why, I just always have.
A few months ago I wrote about the death of Andrew Breitbart and the influence his book had on my life. His book inspired me, so I started writing, occasionally, for a non-profit organization called United Families International. To test me out they asked me to write about a recent conference of Pedophiles. I was a little weirded out on the topic. Before this “assignment” the only thought I had given to pedophiles (other than being grossed out) was thinking that 20 mph in a school zone seemed the optimal speed for someone checking out kids. I then read a couple of articles and looked at a few websites. And let me tell you, there is not enough hand sanitizer in the world to help you feel clean after reading what these people have to say.
So, I wrote the following…
Several years ago I was driving home and passed a neighborhood I pass every day. It is backed away about 75 yards, semi-secluded, from a very busy street. I was rounding the corner on this busy street and saw a child, no more than three years old, on a corner. There wasn’t a parent in sight. I quickly went through the options in my mind. Do I keep driving and hope the kid doesn’t get struck or abducted, do I stop, put the kid in my car, or walk with the child and try to find his home?
Being a man, and a father, I immediately knew I wasn’t going to allow the child to come near my car. I also knew I wouldn’t be thrilled if I saw someone I didn’t know walking up my street with my child. So I figured I would tell the kid to go home. I pulled over, rolled down the passenger side window, and kindly said, “You need to go home”. The kid looked up at me, with snot running down his binky. “Go home”, I said again, “You need to go home”. I received a blank stare. “Your Mom wants you to go home. Go home”. Nothing. So I switched tactics. I furrowed my brow and yelled, “GO HOME RIGHT NOW!!!” The child let out a wail, turned around and went crying home.
So, I hear you asking, what’s your point?
Earlier this month (August 17, 2011) there was a Baltimore conference aiming to “normalize” pedophilia. Oh, you read correctly. A conference to “normalize” pedophilia – a conference! That means more than just Pervy McPervertson and his cousin Sicky McSickyson were in attendance. I’m talking a group of some of the “best and brightest” researchers from several prominent U.S. universities were there as well. What was the goal of this conference? Well, according to the sponsoring organization’s (B4U-ACT) website they want to discuss ways to revise of the American Psychological Association (APA) classification of pedophilia.
How it works is these groups of pedophiles (it makes me wonder how they initially meet) sponsor meetings with members of the APA, to persuade them to redefine or remove “several long-recognized categories of mental illness” from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
According to Linda Ames Nicolosi, publications director of the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH):
“Normalizing” pedophilia would have enormous implications, especially since civil laws closely follow the scientific community on social-moral matters”, she continued, “If pedophilia is deemed normal by psychiatrists, then how it can remain illegal? It will be a tough fight to prove in the courts that it should still be against the law.”
Sadly this kind of advocacy isn’t new. Years ago similar groups tried to “normalize” pedophilia by calling it “intergenerational sex”, arguing there was nothing wrong with it as long as the adult involved with the child/children was not an “authority figure”.
I KNOW!!! The first time I heard that I rolled my eyes so hard I fell out of my chair!
And thus, the point of my story. EVERY child considers an adult an “Authority Figure”. I barely flexed my “authority figure” muscle and scared a child into running home. Any adult can scare or manipulate children. We need to make sure parents are aware of this agenda and take steps to make sure their plans don’t get a foot hold.
