I don't mind breaking this to you, but just because I am not agreeing with the myriad of seriously misinformed misconceptions that I keep getting thrown at me, isn't a sign that I'm dense, it's a sign that your factually deprived arguments aren't the least bit persuasive.

That's sweet of you dear, but not particularly Christlike in your Christianity. Good luck with that. By the by, if your post was a product of those same "real good Christian schools", get your grandkids out now.

No it's quite obvious that you are missing the point. You can't be a true hetero/homo if children are you primary sexual attraction. They may live as a hetero but that isn't their actual prefernce.
Who's to say if I'm "misinformed" or you are. If you are trying to make the facts to suit you and your lifestyle ... well good luck.

Sorry, but their adult sexual orientation doesn't just go away simply because they are acting out on their illness. Keeping up the appearance of whatever is normal for them, including interacting appropriately with adults is actually a great cover. The single most likely suspect in any case of child sexual abuse isn't even a pedophile. Although they do molest far more children than non-pedophiles, pedophiles are actually relatively few in number in comparison to the number of men, who have no history of child sex fantasies, but for some f'd up reason do bad things to a child or two. The single most likely man to do this to a boy, is any man having sex with his mommy, especially if he isn't daddy. There are far more of those men doing time than there are actual pedophiles.

<quoted text>A number of scholars in the late 60's and early 70's romanticized the notion of pederasty and for many it did seem to be a natural fit with the gay rights movement as a whole and so NAMBLA and its fellow travelers were welcomed to the table. It was only as it became apparent that NAMBLA had basically devolved into little more than a network for pedophiles into little boys, that they wore out their welcome.
Yes, I know dear. It's not just history for me. I was there. Remember?

Wrong!!!!! They never were hetero/homo, just a pseudo hetero/homo. They were always child molesters who either hid or denied their sexual choices. Just because they didn't act on those impulses for a length of time doesn't make them temporarily hetero/homo. By your logic they were never pedo until one day voila! they acted on molesting a child and temporarily became a pedo.

THAT is matter of interpretation. I, for one, am not convinced. There are regions, yes, in the U.S., where many consider bestiality to also not be a mental illness. I, personally, am quite cognizant of what is and what isn't anatomically correct and just. Was I completely mislead by the Creator? I think not. I know what "normal" is. What about you? Do you know what "normal" is?

I hope those good Christian schools have good English and grammar classes for your grandchildren.

<quoted text>Straight men have always been allowed to volunteer with the Girl Scouts and they haven't discriminated against gay folk in more than 20 years. What they do to avoid any potential problems is never allow any of their volunteers to be alone with any of the girls at any time. They pioneered what is called two-deep training, that all their volunteers go through and they are taught to keep a constant eye on each other and never to allow yourself or any other volunteer to ever be alone with one of the girls.
Two deep training... is that where you and another volunteer run a train on the little bitch or is that where you both pound her at the same time, one in the pink and the other guy in the stink?

Get with the program, we were discussing pedophiles (both hetero and homo) and their inclinations not the BSA.

Boy Scouts of America just messed up. Gay is NOT natural. People are NOT born gay. They are F#@ked up in the head. So are pedophiles!

It is a choice a person makes.

If anyone EVER touches my child, they will NEVER see the light of day! NEVER

I wasn't linking pedophiles to true homosexuals. You would know that if your reading comprehension was stronger. You're the bigot, not me.
