It's not just a Catholic problem

Back in August I posted an article describing a conference aimed at normalizing and de-criminalizing pedophilia on the part of psychologists and others who argue pedophilia is not immoral but only a way of showing love:
The August 17 Baltimore conference is sponsored by B4U-ACT, a group of pro-pedophile mental health professionals and sympathetic activists. According to the conference brochure, the event will examine “ways in which minor-attracted persons [pedophiles] can be involved in the DSM 5 revision process” and how the popular perceptions of pedophiles can be reframed to encourage tolerance.
Lest anyone think this group acts alone, the government of Greece has now added pedophilia to its list of "disabilities".  Where is the public outcry about this?

In related news, officials in Australia are reporting an increasing number of cases of children sexually abusing children which is believed to be a result of pornography:
VICTORIAN children as young as five are being referred to specialist programs to address sexually abusive behaviour - and the number of minors exhibiting such behaviour is exploding.

The availability of pornography through portable devices drastically affects a child's understanding of acceptable sexual behaviour, according to experts, and is being blamed for the rapid escalation in cases.
No doubt the scope of this serious problem extends far beyond Victoria.

    Hi Father,

    This isn't about your post (sorry), but I was wondering if you saw this on Fr. Z today: http://wdtprs.com/blog/2012/01/note-to-priests-bishops-about-their-blogs-links-and-wdtprs/

    I don't think I saw your blog on his list. Might get a few new readers!

  2. No, I hadn't seen that yet; thank you!
