Well, for one thing, marriage is between one man and one woman, and it's meant to be a protective unit for any children born from that relationship. Research has shown that children born to a one-man, one-woman family unit always does better in every social and mental category compared to those children who aren't.
But the Left can't have that, because to create their Socialist Utopia they needed to bring down religion and the family unit, and what better way to kill two birds with one stone than to push the gay family unit - something that is shunned in most religions, and something which would destroy the family unit as we know it. Today we see the after-effects of liberals pushing the single-mom household, and where, especially in America, the majority of these moms and their children now live below the poverty line. Seventy-five percent of African-American children are born to single-mom homes and have never had a father figure....The children mostly do poorly at school and the poverty cycle is repeated into the next welfare-dependent generation.
So, the Left have mostly succeeded in changing what's viewed as normal behaviour, aided and abetted by our useless, gutless governments. Gay rights are now something to celebrate. What has always been regarded as sexually depraved, perverse and amoral behavior is now taught to our children in school as something to be accepted. Gays can't help it, they were born that way....
Back at the ranch of reality, who really cares what gays do between the sheets? Not me. I couldn't care a flying fig. What I do care about is that these sexual deviants don't brainwash innocent minds or destroy our traditions and harm our children. And do I care if gays have a civil union to celebrate their love? No, but just leave the institute of marriage alone. Call it anything else you like, but marriage it certainly is not - no matter how much they try and make it so. And no matter how much they try, children can't be conceived by gay couplings.....
Over the years there have been many arguments for and against gay marriage and gay acceptance. Concerned people cited the slippery slope argument, because once gay marriage has been accepted by society, then what is next? The gay rights lobby poo-pooed these concerns. That wouldn't happen they assured society, because.....they said so......
So, is it any surprise then that the next bunch of sexual perverts - the paedophiles - are now pushing to be recognised as 'normal'? No, it certainly isn't. Gays argued that gays are just like any other normal person. Well, guess what? Paedophiles are now using the exact same logic and also looking for societal acceptance. It's a 'natural condition' - just like being gay apparently....and so now what gays???
Naturally the gay lobby are trying very hard to keep their place in the sun. Their work isn't done, so how dare the next group usurp the attention? Well, get used to it gays. No one cares about you anymore. You've got your way - you've managed to change society to your view. Move over, because the next lot want their me-too time. Your paedophile brothers will soon be calling for their human rights too - for them to be able to sexually abuse little kiddies. After all, you don't want to hurt their feelings, do you?
And don't say no one warned society that this would happen. Since we've abandoned anything resembling a biblical ethic and morality, it will become harder and harder to argue that some things are simply wrong, and mankind will continue to decline....It's happened to other great civilisations over time and it will happen to ours eventually as well.
I hope it's been worth it.
As a young boy, Paul Christiano loved the world of girls — the way they danced, how their spindly bodies tumbled in gymnastics.
In adolescence, as other boys ogled classmates, he was troubled to find himself fantasizing about 7- to 11-year-olds.
His desires remained stuck in time as he neared adulthood. Despite a stable home life in suburban Chicago, he was tortured by urges he knew could land him in prison.
"For having these feelings, I was destined to become a monster," he said. "I was terrified."
In 1999, Christiano was caught buying child pornography. Now 36, he said he has never molested a child, but after five years of state-ordered therapy, the attraction remains.
"These people felt they could snuff out the desire, or shame me into denying it existed," he said. "But it's as intrinsic as the next person's heterosexuality."
In the laboratory, researchers are coming to the same conclusion.
Like many forms of sexual deviance, pedophilia once was thought to stem from psychological influences early in life. Now, many experts view it as a sexual orientation as immutable as heterosexuality or homosexuality. It is a deep-rooted predisposition — limited almost entirely to men — that becomes clear during puberty and does not change.
The best estimates are that between 1% and 5% of men are pedophiles, meaning that they have a dominant attraction to prepubescent children.
Not all pedophiles molest children. Nor are all child molesters pedophiles. Studies show that about half of all molesters are not sexually attracted to their victims. They often have personality disorders or violent streaks, and their victims are typically family members.
By contrast, pedophiles tend to think of children as romantic partners and look beyond immediate relatives. They include chronic abusers familiar from the headlines — Catholic priests, coaches and generations of Boy Scout leaders.
Other pedophiles are "good people who are struggling," said Dr. Fred Berlin, a psychiatrist who heads the Johns Hopkins Sexual Behaviors Consultation Unit. "They're tortured souls fighting like heck not to do this. We do virtually nothing in terms of reaching out to these folks. We drive it underground."
Some of the new understanding of pedophilia comes from studies done on convicted sex criminals at the Center for Mental Health and Addiction in Toronto, where researchers use a procedure known as phallometry to identify men whose peak attraction is to children.
A man sits alone in a room viewing a series of images and listening to descriptions of various sexual acts with adults and children, male and female, while wearing a device that monitors blood flow to his penis.
Like men attracted to adults, nearly all pedophiles respond most strongly to one gender or the other — females far more often than males.
In searching for causes of pedophilia, researchers have largely dismissed the popular belief that abuse in childhood plays an important role. Studies show that few victims grow up to be abusers, and only about a third of offenders say they were molested.
Scientists at the Toronto center have uncovered a series of associations that suggest pedophilia has biological roots.
Among the most compelling findings is that 30% of pedophiles are left-handed or ambidextrous, triple the general rate. Because hand dominance is established through some combination of genetics and the environment of the womb, scientists see that association as a powerful indicator that something is different about pedophiles at birth.
