So will we soon be seeing headlines about “LGBTQPP” rights?
(the PP would be pedophile / polygamist)

I hope and pray that enough people of right conscience will proclaim what genuine truth and dignity are, and clamor and fight for justice to prevail – the preservation of true marriage and family, by putting God’s gift of sexuality in its proper place in society.

Republicans attempted to add an amendment specifying that “pedophilia is not covered as an orientation;” however, the amendment was defeated by Democrats. Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fl) stated that all alternative sexual lifestyles should be protected under the law. “This bill addresses our resolve to end violence based on prejudice and to guarantee that all Americans, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability or all of these ‘philias’ and fetishes and ‘isms’ that were put forward need not live in fear because of who they are.

Holy Mother of God please pray for us!

This is just too horrifying to believe. I did a google search for stories on it from the mainstram media, and there doesn’t seem to be a single one. That’s equally as horrifying.

Is anyone surprised? The polygamists are also making a move as they see an opportunity to mainstream their practice as well.

This is nothing that wasn’t obvious from the beginning. Why ANY Catholic continues to vote Democrat is beyond me…in fact why any person of faith votes for this agenda is a true mystery.

Jail the filthy scum! They said they molest children, so away with them! Case closed!

The real fools are voters who vote purely on party lines without regards to the individual candidates. It’s “party mentality” that has put this nation in its present state.

Absolutely. Apparently when a few Democrats voted to remove the IRS from administering Obamacare they were castigated and threatened by Debbie Wasserman Schulz and Nancy Pelosi. If you vote Democrat this is what you get. The individual candidate may not agree with the monolithic pro abort, sexual expression and perversion of any kind mentality but he/she risks political future by stepping out and voting as the constituancy would have it.

Incestual relations are next.

People think it won’t happen. It will.

Molesting children deserves dignity? We already know what pedophiles do so where’s the truth part?

WARNING:

Pedophiles are being repackaged and rebranded. They are to be called “minor attracted persons.” Vague and vague, just the way it’s always been. Soon to be rubber-stamped by the American Psychological Association. You know, the same group that responded to pressure by outside radical gay activists and threw years of academic research about homosexual persons out the window and declared homosexuality not a disorder in 1973 (which was followed by the repeal of sodomy laws). They did the same with transgenderism this year, thanks again, to years of lobbying by LGBT groups. The minor attracted persons are hoping to have some input as they draft their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual 5.

Here’s the truth part:

We are all sinners, but this? No.

Peace,

We may be hearing who are we to determine that that child doesn’t have the right to love an adult.:mad:

Love just means sex and a child is a child.

Peace,
Ed

You guys seriously did not see this coming?

I knew this was next the minute it seemed same-sex “marryge” was being pushed

I think the R.C. Church needs to clean up its own house on this issue. We just had two new cases in New Jersey, one with a convicted offender who was allowed to stay in ministry. I won’t elaborate.

Has been discussed at length. Check previous threads. The Church has gone to huge lengths to prevent future abuse. There is no way to eradicate every vestige of perversion and predatory behavior but there are few if any organizations that have done as much as the Catholic Church to protect young people now and in the future, as well as making amends for those who were victimized in the past.

HOW do we convince our fellow citizens of all faiths to take this issue seriously and to fight against this?

With regard to fighting against civil unions and gay marriage, it’s been a losing battle, but at least I have battled. Legislative testimonies, rallies, educating at church, convincing priests to preach on the issues, and “trying” to educate people outside of church.

But this pedophile rights issue? People don’t believe it’s possible. They mistakenly trust their political leaders and court system. They don’t want to talk about or hear about it. Priests won’t talk about it.

What do we do???

Exactly.

The issue can be anything these days where nothing is sacred. The issue is simply the carrier, the intent is to bring down the opposition. What these people don’t understand is that there are things we are to hold in common and these cannot be sacrificed since they form the moral backbone of our mission. Some things are simply not food for the arena of free opinion.

But all this stems from a larger encompassing problem, that people in this generation have fallen away from the Church, choose to ally themselves with permissible man made churches, or chose to reject God altogether. This is all manifest of the beginning of end time.

“Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals.”

It will be argued that minors are in many places already able to receive contraceptives and even abortions without parental consent, so why shouldn’t they be able to consent to sex? Marriage equality will be demanded.

B4U-ACT, according to its Web site, has been around since 2003. And I’ve got news for you. A group named NAMBLA (North American Man Boy Love Association) has been campaigning for changes in the law since 1978 – and has been met with hostility from the gay rights movement. NAMBLA has gotten no traction and is considered a fringe group. Further, this B4-U Act group was reported on two years ago.

The REAL issue here is the thinking of of medical experts, including the highly respected Dr. Fred Berlin, a professor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins and the founder of the Sexual Disorders Clinic at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. He is so highly thought of that he was chosen as a consultant to the USCCB’s Ad Hoc Commission on Sexual Abuse.

Being a physician, Dr. Berlin looks at the issue from a medical, scientific, treatment, and prevention perspective. His appearance at a B4-U Act conference led to an explanation from Johns Hopkins.

Dr. Berlin is unequivocally opposed to any sexual actions between adults and children. In no way does he advocate pedophilia, but rather he believes in getting appropriate help for people attracted to minors in order to prevent them from acting on their impulses. He argues that a distinction should and must be made between individuals with pedophilia who act on their attractions and those who are attracted to minors but refrain from acting on their predilections.

Dr. Berlin believes much of the information reported about the conference has been significantly distorted. Statements made by others in attendance should not be construed as representing the views of Dr. Berlin or Johns Hopkins. He was very clear in his remarks to all who were in attendance how important it is to make every possible effort to prevent the sexual abuse of children.

Pedophilia is now and should remain a pathology and a crime. I suppose you can be distracted by B4U-Act. But if you want to protect your children, know the facts about how children are preyed upon.

Who are the victims?

How can children be protected?

rainn.org/get-information/sexual-assault-prevention/protecting-a-child-from-sexual-assault

Who are the offenders? According to experts, 75 percent of children are molested by people known to them.

nctsn.org/nctsn_assets/pdfs/caring/ChildSexualAbuseFactSheet.pdf

Child molestation thrives in the shadows, in homes, in schools, in churches, and within families. Look out for your kids. Campaign for stricter laws in your states. And see this group for what it is – a blip on the radar screen.

I think that any politician who supports these evil people should also be forced to repudiate their opposition to Catholic priests who harmed children.

Let’s see someone ask them about that.

The day we legitimize pedophilia is the day civilization will come crashing an end. We will truly be drowned in a flood of our own filth and perversion. God help us. We must fight this trend before it’s too late.
