pe·do·phil·i·a /ˌpedəˈfilēə/ Noun Sexual feelings directed toward children Correction: Minor attraction
You knew it was coming. It only makes sense. Think about it: If people reject God’s authoritative Word about humans being made in God’s Image, about harmonious human sexuality, then, what are the boundaries regarding sexual practice and thinking? None, really. Just personal preference. And, here we go. Just take a look at this quote from an article on a popular website regarding the most recent attempt to maneuver the language and thinking regarding pedophilia to “minor attracted persons” found recently in the B4U-ACT movement:
“What seems really strange is, in a society that (especially on the internet) is so accepting of homosexuals, how universal this hatred toward pedophiles is. Aside from the sites of the pedophile groups themselves, I can’t find anyone in support of the basic right of these people not to be socially stigmatized. Everyone seems to equate minor-attracted people with child molesters, which is illogical to an insane degree; certain people who are attracted to adults commit rape, but this doesn’t condemn their entire orientation to ostracism. Let me be clear: from an evolutionary perspective, pedophilia (just like homosexuality) is an incorrect desire because it does not lead to reproduction. However, this doesn’t make it morally wrong and certainly doesn’t warrant all the primal loathing nearly everyone seems to have of pedophiles. Though sexual attraction to minors doesn’t fulfill the meaning of life and thus could be regarded as “worse” than attraction to adults, the pedophiles themselves haven’t done anything collectively wrong; they were born with a different sexual orientation.” http://www.sodahead.com/united-states/hatred-toward-minor-attracted-persons-pedophiles/question-3706265/
