Pedophiles want the same rights that the LGBT have. The rights concerning pedophiles is following the exact blueprint that the LGBT movement has developed to have their sexual desires deemed as law and natural. Between 1952 and 1973, homosexuality was classified as a mental disorder by the American Psychiatric Association. Even for those that did not have religious beliefs at that time, it simply did not make sense to be gay. It is natural for any species to ensure its survival by reproducing. A man cannot reproduce by being with another man. A woman cannot reproduce by being with another woman. The only way that human beings can insure their survival is for a man to have sexual intercourse with a woman.
This logic has now been tossed out the window. The new trend is that gay is perfectly normal and should be celebrated. I say “new trend,” but honestly there isn’t anything “new” about it. Its an ancient trend reemerging. ( You can read more about that here)
The first part of the LGBT movement started with the redefining of what it means to be a homosexual and then shortly after that the laws solidified the new definition as law. This is the exact pattern the pedophiles are using. Pedophiles are no longer called pedophiles but “minor-attracted persons” While much of the medical community still refer to pedophiles as pedophiles there are those who embrace the MAP term. For Example Dr. Michael Seto’s has this to say about pedophilia, For several decades, MAPs (Minor attracted Persons) have felt stigmatized, “othered,” and even demonized by society, including the mental health community, due to language and descriptions that have suggested they were dangerous, devious, inscrutable, and fundamentally different from “normal” people. He goes on further to say, Therapists who put primary emphasis on preventing MAPs from offending are subordinating the psychological needs of their clients, sending the message that these needs are not as important as they would be for “normal” clients. MAPs sense they are being seen as risks or objects to be controlled rather than as people. This feels dehumanizing and adversarial as if the therapist is an agent of law enforcement and social control rather than a helping professional. It is also discriminatory since other clients are not treated this way. All of this, of course, intensifies rather than ameliorates stigma and mental health problems, alienating MAPs from the mental health system. This sounds all too familiar. The focus is being taken away from helping pedophiles and addressing it for what it is to playing the discrimination and victim card and putting the blame on society as the reason why pedophiles are the way they are. Dr. Seto believes that many MAPs don’t abuse children and that they face stigma similar to that faced by LGBT people. (To read the entire article click here)
In addition to the belief that pedophiles need to be embraced like “normal” people new laws have also begun to surface paving the way for pedophiles to be treated “fairly”. Take for example the bill passed in California (SB 145) states that offenders would not have to automatically register as sex offenders if the offenders are within 10 years of age of the minor. Under this bill, adults who are 25 years old can have sex with a 15-year-old and not have to register as a sex offender. Those supporting the bill argue that the legislation is meant to protect LGBT people in consensual sexual relationships. ,” Rick Zbur, the executive director of equality in California feels “There’s no reason for the law to treat a high school senior dating a high school junior differently because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, . . For years, we’ve been working to make this common-sense fix and ensure LGBT young people are treated the same as their peers.” If you think about it, this bill makes no sense. Regardless of whether the predator is gay or not should have no bearing on the age restrictions of who should register as a sex offender.
It is absolutely imperative now more than ever to pray for our nation and those who are making the laws. The scriptures tell us, Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness to light and light to darkness, who replace bitter with sweet and sweet with bitter. Judgement follows when nations call evil good and good evil. However, God always provides an opportunity for nations to repent. If this does not happen, then the people of God must keep their ears close to God so they can know what to do. Jesus said my sheep know my voice and follow me. (John 10:27-28) The people of God will need to be able to hear God, so they know if they need to move or not, if so then where to? Whom do you need to take with you? Whom do you need to leave behind? Who can you trust? . . . etc. Remember those who call upon the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)
