Pedophilia (Sexual Attraction To Children) To Be Legalized?

Legalize The Lies / Sins

            Christian apologist Frank Turek said, “Lies are born the moment someone thinks the truth is dangerous.” One can’t hit the nail better on its head.

            Not so long ago, the conventional thought of the majority was to deem homosexuality as an abnormal or as we Christians say, sinful, sexual behavior. This conventional thought was predicated on the truth that homosexuality is a sin against God or as a secularist would claim – a behavior contrary to nature, and hence should not be practiced.

            However, an alternative, but a weirdly powerful thought process began devouring the conventional thought. This weird yet powerful thought asked the question, “Why should love be denied between consenting homosexuals?” This weird thought promoted the lie under the pretext of love, because it thought that the truth was dangerously condemning love between homosexuals. 

            As a result homosexuality is now considered as an alternative lifestyle in many, if not all cultures. Some countries have legalized homosexuality and others are on their way to do so. In India, once a bastion of conservative thought, hate would inundate those who dare condemn homosexuality.

            When the lie of homosexuality camouflaged as truth and taken off the taboo-list of condemnatory sexual behaviors, many well-meaning voices envisaged a time when the greater lie of pedophilia (sexual attraction to children) would follow suit. Appropriately so, a few years ago, at a conference held by the University of Cambridge, university academics began the process to legalize pedophilia when they presented papers advocating legalization of pedophilia.

Pedophilia Will Piggyback On Homosexuality

            On what grounds would pedophilia be legalized? 

            Pedophilia will piggyback on homosexuality. Two prominent Canadian psychologists believe that pedophilia is a sexual orientation as heterosexuality or homosexuality, "Van Gijseghem, psychologist and retired professor of the University of Montreal, told      members of Parliament, “Pedophiles are not simply people who commit a small offense from time to time but rather are grappling with what is equivalent to a sexual orientation just like another individual may be grappling with heterosexuality or even homosexuality.” He went on to say, “True pedophiles have an exclusive preference for children, which is the same as having a sexual orientation. You cannot change this person’s sexual orientation. He may, however, remain abstinent.” When asked if he should be comparing pedophiles to homosexuals, Van Gijseghem replied, “If, for instance, you were living in a society where heterosexuality is proscribed or prohibited and you were told that you had to get therapy to change your sexual orientation, you would probably say that that is slightly crazy. In other words, you would not accept that at all. I use this analogy to say that, yes indeed, pedophiles do not change their sexualorientation.”

            Dr. Quinsey, professor emeritus of psychology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, agreed with Van Gijseghem. Quinsey said pedophiles’ sexual interests prefer children and, “There is no evidence that this sort of preference can be changed through treatment or through anything else.”

            In July, 2010 Harvard health Publications said, “Pedophilia is a sexual orientation and unlikely to change. Treatment aims to enable someone to resist acting on his sexual urges.”"1

            Therefore, the abnormal sexual behavior of pedophilia will be camouflaged as truth under the pretext of an alternate sexual orientation to gain legitimacy.

Further Justification For Pedophilia

            NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love Association) justifies pedophilia on the basis of its presence during the evolution of man, "THERE IS GOOD evidence for the view that man/boy love is rooted in our earliest social evolution.  If true, then no amount of suppressive legislation, beefed-up police powers, or       psychological conditioning will ever be able to eradicate it without fundamentally altering and impairing something essential and vital in human nature. Intergenerational homosexuality has been observed repeatedly in one of the most intelligent creatures on the planet.  Dolphins not only engage in homosexuality, but also the cetaceous equivalent of boy-love.  In what has come to be regarded as the "classic observations of dolphins at the Marineland of Florida," marine biologists A.F.  McBride and D.O.  Hebb published their findings in the Journal of Comparative and Physiological Psychology.  Their landmark study revealed that sexual play among young male dolphins was so common it seemed to typify a pre-adult stage. Not as common but nonetheless frequent were sexual encounters between maturing male dolphins and fully adult males. These liaisons were not matters of dominance and submission.  Indeed, the younger dolphins often sought out the older males. Force or coercion never appeared in such contacts."2

            NAMBLA then goes on to substantiate the presence of pedophilia in mankind that existed 4000 years ago, “If American moralists are scandalized by the dolphin's sex practices, how much more offended might they be by the behavior of their own ancestors, the founders of western civilization, more than 4000 years ago?  In his deeply researched investigation of the Indo-European peoples of the third millennium B.C., Rick Fields recreated their ceremonial life: "Very probably they practiced ritual pederasty, like some of the warriors in New Guinea.  This custom was known among warrior societies in Sparta and Crete, where young boys were 'captured' by older warriors as part of initiation.  It was also found among the Celts and Germans."” 3 (Pederasty is the sexual relationship between an adult and a minor.)

            Today, pedophilia advocacy groups (organizations working towards legalizing paedophilia) are active in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, United Kingdom, and the United States. 4

            So do not be surprised if you are living in a country that will soon legalize pedophilia.

Consequence: Increased Child Sex Abuse

            We do not need an astrophysicist to inform us that legitimizing pedophilia would result in an increased child sex abuse. It is estimated that 1 in 6 boys and 1 in 4 girls in the USA are victims of sexual abuse before the age of 18.5 If pedophilia is to be legitimized, then more children would be vulnerable to sexual abuse.

            Moreover, we will observe an increased number of pedophiles in action. Even the church would present an increased number of pedophiles clothed as clergy. For instance, the Pope had apparently announced that 2% of Catholic clergy are pedophiles.6 If pedophilia is legitimized, then it is quite possible that this percentage could increase.

Consequence: Legitimize Other Lies / Sins E.g. Child Pornography

            Would there be associated threats if pedophilia is to be legitimized?

            The seeds for such threats are being planted already. Even the most learned scholars would then advocate the legitimization of child porn in order to keep the pedophiles in check, “Milton Diamond, a University of Hawaii professor and director of the Pacific Center for Sex and Society, stated that child pornography could be beneficial to society because, “Potential sex offenders use child pornography as a substitute for sex against children.”

            Diamond is a distinguished lecturer for the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco.”7

Christian Response

            What should the Christians do in the wake of such inordinate threats to our children?

            Let us primarily educate ourselves and our children about this situation. Let us also develop a healthy relationship with our children that they would approach us first when and if they are abused or even if they suspect a person as a pedophile. This person could even be a most trusted person in our domain.

            Focus on the victims; love and care for them says this wonderful article, please read this article if you are serious about tackling the menace of pedophilia, especially in the church, (

            Finally, today, even within Christianity, voices are getting louder to tolerate homosexuality. A good number of Christians have sinfully embraced the lie of tolerance that appears as a noble truth.

            So here’s my question to those who tolerate homosexuality, “how do you propose to tolerate when your child or a dear friend’s child, in trauma, divulges that he/she has been painfully sodomized by an adult?” 


           Come Lord Jesus and deliver us from evil.
