Slippery Slope and Pedophilia
« on: January 11, 2013, 12:44:38 PM »
Because the "Slippery Slope" thread is still locked, I am opening this one to continue gathering evidence that the "sexual liberation" movement has all the intention of legitimizing pedophilia.

This one was published on The Guardian, last Jan, 3rd.
Paedophilia: bringing dark desires to light

Argument of authority:

In 1976 the National Council for Civil Liberties, the respectable (and responsible) pressure group now known as Liberty, made a submission to parliament's criminal law revision committee. It caused barely a ripple. "Childhood sexual experiences, willingly engaged in with an adult," it read, "result in no identifiable damage … The real need is a change in the attitude which assumes that all cases of paedophilia result in lasting damage."

Blurring definitions
A liberal professor of psychology who studied in the late 1970s will see things very differently from someone working in child protection, or with convicted sex offenders. There is, astonishingly, not even a full academic consensus on whether consensual paedophilic relations necessarily cause harm.
So what, then, do we know?

Creation of the new "minority oppressed by prejudice"
 "true" paedophiles are estimated by some experts to account for only 20% of sexual abusers.

Legitimation, un-medicalization and legalization
This is radical stuff. But there is a growing conviction, notably in Canada, that paedophilia should probably be classified as a distinct sexual orientation, like heterosexuality or homosexuality.

Labelling of discenters as biased and opposing opinions as irrational
Child protection agencies and many who work with sex offenders dislike this.
If the complexity and divergence of professional opinion may have helped create today's panic around paedophilia,
which brought mobs on to the streets to
paranoia about the danger from solitary, predatory deviants
society's outrage at paedophilic relationships is essentially emotional, irrational, and not justified by science.

Inversion of Guilt (the traditional family is the real danger)
 the infinitely more real menace of abuse within the home or extended circle

Linking with the traditional origins, which a re well accepted today
The reclassification of paedophilia as a sexual orientation would, however, play into what Goode calls "the sexual liberation discourse", which has existed since the 1970s. "There are a lot of people," she says, "who say: we outlawed homosexuality, and we were wrong. Perhaps we're wrong about paedophilia."

Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.
