Psychiatrists Want To Remove Pedophilia From DSM

              (photo source)

Some psychiatrists within the APA are trying to normalize pedphilia. Here's the article link. Of course, this is exactly what the APA did with homosexuality in 1973 in order to normalize it. However, both homosexuality and pedophilia are not mental illnesses ("mental" is not to be confused with the brain--"mental" is more about thoughts and emotions, not an organ), but rather the sin of immorality.

Consider the havoc that will play upon the children and the court system. This is utterly sick, but it goes to show yet again, just how arbitrary and subjective psychology is---if its in their little "bible" of the DSM, then its an "illness", if not, its not. Even diagnosing an "illness" is subjective and without any objective medical tests (there are NONE).

I highly recommend reading more at:

"The End of 'Christian' Psychology" by Martin and Deidre Bobgan

1Ti 1:10 the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and
whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine,

1Co 6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,11 And such WERE some of you. BUT you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Jud 1:7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

Rom 1:23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
Rom 1:24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,
Rom 1:25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
Rom 1:26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature;
Rom 1:27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
Rom 1:28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.

Perversion leading to more perversion. May the Lord protect children from such wretchedness!

If you have not already, I highly suggest Michael Brown's "Queering of America", where he covers this very subject and it's crossroads. The arguments for are identical.

"The bible is infallible.
Why? Because it's the word of God.
How do we know it's the word of God? Because it's infallible...."

This circular logic is the problem in our society. If any one religion was proven, the world would know by now. I respect everyone's religion, and am against the idiots defending pedophiles BECAUSE children are too young to consent. Is it a mental illness? That's not my job to tell you. If it is or isn't, it still isn't defend able.

Homosexuality, however, is between two consenting adults. It hurts nobody if you're safe about it. Homosexuals have been proven to raise kids successfully. Homosexuality seems to be a matter of nurture & nature, and IS AS MUCH A CHOICE as heterosexuals finding the other sex attractive. We don't choose who's attractive to us. It's no different for them.

So why, do people of religions who supposedly endorse tolerance and acceptance seek to destroy secularism and enforce their beliefs on people who have different ones? There's a word for that: fascism.

It doesn't have to be called marriage, and only an immature idiot would have a political debate over the use of a word, but anybody who doesn't want homosexuals to have the same tax & civil liberties granted to heterosexuals is biased and fascist. This isn't about religion; it's about human rights and the freedom to do what you want.

Concerning my previous comment; I'm interested if you, the blog owner will approve it.

If you were to post on my site, I would do the same, because as Voltaire said "I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it".

Will you be tolerant and endorse the right to speech, as I would for you, or will you silence my opinions to your blog followers?

If you do approve it, I offer you my thanks.

If you do not, and I am worried about this because I often see Christian-Conservatives deny internet speech, then know from this article you have expressed your disagreement not only with equality, but with freedom.

Homosexuality is wrong because the God who created this universe has declared it to be so. As Creator, He has the authority and right to do so. Morever, God is holy and good and just and therefore His very nature defines what is true, right, good, as well as what is contrary to those: evil, false, wrong.

God created all men with the knoweldge of right and wrong ("conscience") and people know instinctivey by this conscience that homosexuality is wrong (as they do adultery, for example). See Romans 1- 2.

God created marriage to be between one man and one woman, perfectly suited both emotionally and physically for each other. This is what we see in Genesis. Homosexuality is a perversion of what God, who is all good and holy, created which is marriage between a man and a woman (the first marriage relationship is in Gen. 1-2). To pervert what God has deemed as holy is nothing less than perversion and unholy--sin in the eyes of the Creator.

Pedophilia is wrong because it involves children and endangers them as well as its fornication. So really on two counts its sin. Consensus isn't what defines a thing to ge moral or immoral; God defines what is moral or immoral. And every person, you included idiot-seeker, knows that both pedophilia and homosexuality are both wrong. Neither are an illness, both are sinful behaviors and are deviant and perverted.

Truth by definition is exclusive. Truth is knowable because the Author of Truth has made it known. The Creator God, Who is the God of truth has revealed truth to us not only by conscience about the world around us, but also by revealing Himself through the Scriptures HE has given us and by His Son, Jesus Christ, who is God the Son, the resurrected Lord and only Savior. The Bible is true absolutely because God is True and it came from Him.

One day every person ever born will be held accountable for their lives and their sin before the Holy Holy Holy God, idiot-seeker, including you. While homosexuality enslaves a person, there is indeed a solution: true freedom from that slave (and everyone, btw, is a slave to sin unless they get saved) by trusting in the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ, who alone can save anyone from all their sins. He alone is the Prince of true peace, the One who took the full wrath and punishment from God the Father toward sinners like yourself who have offended the holy holy holy God. Scripture states that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and that the wages or payment of sin is death and then eternal punishment if one does not repent (turn away from) one's sins and turns to Christ Jesus alone. Every person is ill-deserving of Heaven and is actively earning Hell and because God is a just and righteous God, He must deal with sin and sinners justly. There are only two ways of dealing justly with our sin: by trusting in Jesus Christ and His life, death and resurrection from the dead, as the sinless One who took our due punishment on the cross, or by going to Hell for eternal punishment.

I pray Idiot seeker that you repent of your sins and turn to Christ Jesus Alone, who is God over all, the only way to the Father, the only Savior, and fall on your knees before Him in humility and cry out for His mercy. Those who come to Him in this way, on His terms, will find salvation and lasting peace for eternity and also great joy even through life's hardest trials, because of God's great grace and mercy, all to His glory and honor.

Idiot Seeker,

I just read your second comment about whether I would post your first comment or not. I had already posted your first one without reading the second.

I don't feel the need to post every comment made on my blog. I posted your first one because I wanted to address the issue with a clear proclamation of what Truth is and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Commenting here indeed is a privilege and not blindly granted. I'm sure you understand. Thank you.
