APA Sees No Great Harm in Adult-child Sex
The first step has been taken in the public acceptance of pedophilia.
The American Psychological Association claims that their research does not support the idea that great harm is done by "adult-child sex." As a result a move is on in some academic circles to remove pedophilia from the list of psychological diseases, just as homosexuality was removed several years ago.
In July of last year the Psychological Bulletin of the AMA carried an article examining all the research studying the harm done by childhood sexual abuse. The conclusion was that, on average, psychological harm was minimal. Some of the harm was not due to the experience itself, but the social and cultural taboos associated with the practice.
Authors of the article suggested that psychologists stop using judgmental terms like "child abuse," "molestation," and "victims." Instead, neutral words such as "adult-child sex" were to be used.
So, the door is now open for the "psychologically normal" pedophile. And we have seen this pattern before in relation to homosexuality.
First, psychiatry recognized homosexuality as normal. Next,liberal theologians took up the cause and began promoting it as an alternate lifestyle. Then the courts and legislators began to rewrite civil law protecting the perverted behavior.
Now, the demons of Sodom are pushing for access to our children. It remains to be seen whether the general public will cower before this next satanic campaign. Many are beginning to see the damage done by looking the other way while the homosexuals stormed the gates.
With sodomites currently demanding marriage licenses and all the legal benefits granted to families,some are standing up and saying: "ENOUGH." To date, 29 states have passed laws defining marriage as the "legal union of one man and one woman as husband and wife." Many other states have such legislation on the agenda.
Bible believers cannot afford to let this one pass. We must let our government representatives know what God thinks about sexual perversion and demand that they use the laws to attack this evil.
We must equip our neighbors, friends and fellow believers to flood our communities with the biblical truth about this perversion.
Millions in this country bought the lie that what they do in secret doesn't matter. The Bible says that it matters to God. And if it matters to Him, it better matter to us, too.
