Establishing Pedophiles as a Protected Class

No matter how far they push, they will always push further. What will be next after the population has been bullied and brainwashed into accepting homosexuality as normal? California offers a clue:

California Congresswoman, Rep. Jackie Speier CA (D), wants to federalize a state law to prohibit counseling to change a person’s sexual orientation.

Under the bill’s language, a mental health counselor could be sanctioned if there was an attempt to get a gay individual to change his or her behavior or speak negatively about their behavior as it relates to sexuality.

Homosexuality is sacred to our moonbat overlords. Consequently, it has been stricken from the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, and progressives actually want to make it illegal to cure this psychiatric malady.

But the story gets worse:

The text of the legislation doesn’t specifically ban “gay” conversion therapy. Instead, it prohibits attempts to change a person’s sexual orientation.

Could this apply to pedophiles? Apparently yes:

Republicans attempted to add an amendment specifying that, “pedophilia is not covered as an orientation.” However, the Democrats defeated the amendment. Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) stated that all alternative sexual lifestyles should be protected under the law.

Alcee Hastings used to be a federal judge, but he was impeached for soliciting bribes and lying under oath. So he joined Congress, where moral and legal problems are not an issue so long as the constituency is sufficiently debased. Corrupt rulers make corrupt laws.

People are just beginning to figure out the implications of homosexuals becoming a protected class. There will be more implications when pedophiles join them. According to Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute:

“It’s not just the orientation that is protected — the conduct associated with the orientation is protected as well.”

It also means that, if pedophilia is a sexual orientation, that discrimination laws also apply to pedophiles. That means you cannot block a pedophile from being a preschool teacher or any other high-risk occupation.

Theoretically, the law would place pedophiles above normal people in the caste system imposed by political correctness, so that they would be given hiring priority and would be nearly impossible to fire.

Fortunately California SB 1172 has been hung up for the time being on First Amendment grounds, so it will be awhile before it goes nationwide. But that will only give progressives more time to think of where to push us next.

    The legislation is obviously intended to punish anyone from talking someone into becoming straight, which i think is rather silly. No one has ever been “talked” out of being gay. But, couldn’t it also be used to punish someone wanting to “change” their gender from male to female, or female to male?

  3. Doubting Rich says:

    I would say it is worse than you are suggesting. Someone who feels attraction to children might well, if he has any morals, wish to receive help to resist his impulses. Knowing how previous laws have been enforced, I think many therapists would be very reluctant to offer it, lest they be accused of actively advocating treatment. This might lead to some people finding help difficult to come by even if they want it!

  4. Doubting Rich says:

    Correction to my last: having just re-read the wording, I think that the therapist might actually be forced by the legislation to refuse to help. So the law says, quite rightly, that anyone with such feelings should not act on them, yet this new law will prevent anyone from helping him.

    I heard from an old friend last night that he is finally abandoning California where he was born and raised. He can no longer stand the overt perversion and mind poisoning be the liberal totalitarian class. I can’;t help but wonder if CA will charge him with a thought crime for moving out of the stinking butt-hole state.

    TELL THAT TO THESE PEOPLE, AND OTHERS LIKE THEM – THROUGH GOD’S GRACE ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE:

    How a ‘gay rights’ leader became straight:

    “God is regarded as an enemy by many in the grip of homosexuality or other lustful behavior, because He reminds them of who and what they truly are meant to be. People caught in the act would rather stay “blissfully ignorant” by silencing truth and those who speak it, through antagonism, condemnation and calling them words like “racist,” “insensitive,” “evil” and “discriminatory.”

    In my experience, “coming out” from under the influence of the homosexual mindset was the most liberating, beautiful and astonishing thing I’ve ever experienced in my entire life.

    His reassuring testimony underscores the all-sufficient power of Jesus to save “to the uttermost”; to save His people, whosoever they may be, from their sins of whatever nature. Yes, as is true for any other sinner, God can save even homosexuals from their lifestyle of sin. For, Homosexuals Are God’s Children, Too!

    The above is solid evidence that homosexuals have been converted, by God’s grace. GOD CONVERTS SINNERS, AND USES CHRISTIAN COUNSELORS in that calling too. The bill would criminalize that.

    Have you read the text of the bill, it’s absolute BS and criminalizes ministers from trying to help sexually confused or abused teens from making horrible choices away from God’s will:

    http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201120120SB1172

    That is why a federal court has found this abomination of a bill unconstitutional and against the 1st Amendment right of free speech:

    A judge in California has granted a preliminary injunction preventing enforcement of California’s newest promotion of homosexuality: a proposed ban on any counseling involving sexual orientation change for minors.

    According to the judge, the substance of the bill would prohibit a “‘mental health provider’ (including a Christian minister) from engaging in ‘sexual orientation change efforts with a patient under 18 years of age’ under all circumstances.”

    One of the successful plaintiffs, Donald Welch, is a licensed marriage and family therapist and minister, teaches the Judeo/Christian biblical view that “human sexuality … is to be expressed only in a monogamous lifelong relationship between one man and one woman within the framework of marriage,” the judge wrote.

    The unconstituional law flatly bans the advice for minors, regardless of what the minor and his or her parents desire. It also demands a new consent form from adults that includes statements about sexual orientation with which many counselors disagree.

    Pacific Justice, which has led the fight against the bill since its introduction last spring by Sen. Ted Lieu, Demonrat-Torrance, had sent staff members to lawmakers repeatedly to warn of the plan’s unconstitutionality, only to fall on their deaf ears.

    If God’s will can convert Saul of Tarsus, the slayer of early Christians to renew his heart and mind to become Paul and write half of the New Testament, how can anyone condemn homosexuals to their sin?

    “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”

    It is tragic that homosexuality is the one psychological disorder that the world refuses to treat.

    If you doubt that it is a disorder, remember that natural selection is very good at eliminating dominant traits that impare successful reproduction.

    “It is tragic that homosexuality is the one psychological disorder that the world refuses to treat.”

    Ah, Tax Slave, but you see our wise rulers have taken care of that issue through a radical breakthrough in genuflextion to the gay mafia – our esteemed leaders no longer view homosexuality as a pschological disorder, since this “breakthrough” 30 years ago, and now deem it “normal” so that they can wax eloquent and pontificate about the scientific community’s supposed support (i.e. knuckling under) for their depraved agenda:

    “According to the American Psychiatric Association, until 1974 homosexuality was a mental illness. Freud had alluded to homosexuality numerous times in his writings, and had concluded that paranoia and homosexuality were inseparable. Other psychiatrists wrote copiously on the subject, and homosexuality was “treated” on a wide basis. There was little or no suggestion within the psychiatric community that homosexuality might be conceptualized as anything other than a mental illness that needed to be treated. And, of course, homosexuality was listed as a mental illness in DSM-II.”

    But, that must go down the memory hole for citizens of the land of Hope and Change:

    “Then in 1970 gay activists protested against the APA convention in San Francisco. These scenes were repeated in 1971, and as people came out of the “closet” and felt empowered politically and socially, the APA directorate became increasingly uncomfortable with their stance. In 1973 the APA’s nomenclature task force recommended that homosexuality be declared normal. The trustees were not prepared to go that far, but they did vote to remove homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses by a vote of 13 to 0, with 2 abstentions. This decision was confirmed by a vote of the APA membership, and homosexuality was no longer listed in the seventh edition of DSM-II, which was issued in 1974.

    What’s noteworthy about this is that the removal of homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses was NOT triggered by some scientific breakthrough. There was NO new fact or set of facts that stimulated this major change. Rather, it was the simple reality that gay people started to kick up a fuss.

    So all the people who had this “illness” were “cured” overnight – by a vote! Also noteworthy is the fact that the vote of the membership was by no means unanimous. Only about 55% of the members who voted favored the change.”

    So, you assume homosexuality is a psychoses and neuroses condition, a psychological disorder rather than a genetic one? I disagree sir/madam.

    Say you needed your gun for semi-auto fellation wouldn’t that be protected under this moonbats legislation as long as you did not do anything dangerous like try to shoot an apple off your wife’s head?

  20. Tax Slave says:

    Jangles,

    Natural selection is very good at eliminating dominant genetic traits that interfere with successful reproduction. Therefore, if there are any genetic causes of or preconditions for homosexuality, they would have to be recessive.

    Also, men in extremis, such as in prison or aboard ship practiced homosexual acts simply because there were no women available, yet the instant women become available, these men return to more normal sexual behavior. Men who act as prostitutes for sex tourism in Haiti engaged in homosexual acts for money, but “clensed” themselves with heterosexal acts once their worknight was over.

    Homosexuality seems to be nature’s way of saying, “You, out of the gene pool!” At least it was before the invention of a new use for the turkey baster.

    Think of it a evolution in action.
