Don't know if any of you saw the rerun of SVU the other night but it was about pedophiles and their civil right to "love" children. The defense argued that it is no different than a homosexual or heterosexual relationship in that it's not a choice but that pedophiles are born that way.
I also want to make it very clear that I in NO WAY condone a pedophiles behavior, thoughts, actions etc. I just thought that it was an interesting episode and wondered how you felt about the argument. Is it a sickness? Are they born that way? Are they nurtured through society in some way? Do they really have a case for civil rights? (that scares me) Apparently there is a group of men, over 5,000, who are petitioning for this.
Personally I think anyone who touches a child in any inappropriate way should be taken out back and shot.
