The “Q” in LGBTQ stood for “questioning”, before it was dropped. Maybe now we know why?
No one on the right wants to discriminate against people for the kind of sex they feel oriented to engage in, but neither should anyone attain special rights based upon such desires.
Contrary to the arguments of many liberal Democrats today, there is no equivalency between the civil rights fought for against former Jim Crow-laws and sexual orientation issues; and to say so is to besmirch the legacy of Rev. Martin Luther King and other Blacks who suffered under de jure segregation:
Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals…
Pedophilia has already been granted protected status by the Federal Government. The Matthew Shephard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act lists “sexual orientation” as a protected class; however, it does not define the term.
Republicans attempted to add an amendment specifying that “pedophilia is not covered as an orientation;” however, the amendment was defeated by Democrats. Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fl) stated that all alternative sexual lifestyles should be protected under the law. “This bill addresses our resolve to end violence based on prejudice and to guarantee that all Americans, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability or all of these ‘philias’ and fetishes and ‘isms’ that were put forward need not live in fear because of who they are. I urge my colleagues to vote in favor of this rule.”
The White House praised the bill saying, “At root, this isn’t just about our laws; this is about who we are as a people. This is about whether we value one another – whether we embrace our differences rather than allowing them to become a source of animus.”
Earlier this year two psychologists in Canada declared that pedophilia is a sexual orientation just like homosexuality or heterosexuality.
The Culture War in America is an epithet regularly hurled at conservatives and Republicans, but as this story shows, it is the Right that is on defense in this war.
