An article in the liberal Gawker attempts to normalize pedophiles: Born This Way: Sympathy and Science for Those Who Want to Have Sex with Children
Imagine a world in which admitting your attraction to busty women or tall men led to alienation, jail time, or your murder. Older gay men can probably remember such an era, but nowadays most sexual appetites have been mainstreamed to the point of banality. Pedophiles, for obvious reasons, don’t enjoy the same kind of tolerance, and thus it seems as if they may be locked forever in a sexual prison from the moment they’re born….
No, I do not wish to imagine such a world, who the Hell would? Attraction between adults is natural, and normal, and quite necessary for the species to continue. Teens being attracted to each other is normal as well. An adult looking at a teen and saying they are handsome, or pretty, nothing wrong there either. But an adult, looking at a child and wanting to have sex with them? Not normal, not healthy, and no rational person would argue that it is.
The old adage is that the true mark of a society is how it treats the weakest in its ranks. Blacks, women, Latinos, gays and lesbians, and others are still in no way on wholly equal footing in America. But they’re also not nearly as lowly and cursed as men attracted to children. One imagines that if Jesus ever came to Earth, he’d embrace the poor, the blind, the lepers, and, yes, the pedophiles. As a self-professed “progressive,” when I think of the world I’d like to live in, I like to imagine that one day I’d be OK with a man like Terry moving next door to me and my children. I like to think that I could welcome him in for dinner, break bread with him, and offer him the same blessings he’s offered me time and again. And what hurts to admit, even knowing all I know now, is that I’m not positive I could do that.
That last part is what really gets me. What kind of fool would ever allow a pedophile near their children? Frankly, that is simply NOT normal. The normal reaction to such an idea for a parent would be, Hell no! Even if you truly believed that such a person might have changed, the risk to your child would disallow any parent to even weigh the option. There is a line between forgiveness and stupidity, any parent who could pen such gibberish has clearly crossed that line. To be brutally clear here, the author of this piece Cord Jefferson, is so morally retarded that they long for a world where a “reformed” child molester might be welcomed in their home, near their kids? I guess it might be OK if they were truly “reformed” but sorry, some actions are so heinous as to preclude the perpetrator ever being trusted again. Of course, to expect a Liberal to grasp that is beyond hope I guess.
The details of what “Terry” the Pedophile did, with a seven-year-old girl, are at the link, I refuse to publish that here. It is graphic, and extremely disturbing, in fact, it is fair to say the acts “Terry” committed were evil. And “Terry” ought never be allowed near any child again.
