APA Says Pedophilia is Not a Mental Disorder

Yesterday, I posted a blog where I talked about moral absolutes and used an argument about pedophilia being defended today by a number of psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers. (See "Why Does Tampa Student Bomb Plot Surprise Anyone") I also stated if anyone didn’t believe the argument I used, then they needed to do some research over the past 10 years and they would find a number of articles where professional psychiatrists have even defended pedophilia.

As if it were meant to be or just perfect coincidental timing, I found a newly posted article claiming that some members of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) want to remove pedophilia from the list of mental disorders.

Matt Barber with the Liberty Counsel Action group attended the meetings where the announcement was made and reported that the discussions were concerned more with the public perception of pedophilia than with the victims, focusing on:

“Destigmatizing pedophilia ... removing the stigma, and [getting] the public to stop demonizing pedophiles,” and that, “The entire focus of the event was on the victimhood of the pedophile," Barber accounts. There was "very little concern for the children who are the victims of these individuals when they are raped, who these individuals lust after.”

The proceedings were a step toward officially declassifying pedophilia as a mental disorder, just like the organization did with homosexuality back in the 1970’s. It should also come as no surprise that the group voted 157 to 0 in favor of endorsing same sex marriages.

Mental disorder or not, anyone convicted of pedophilia needs to be surgically fixed to make them like a eunuch and then throw their sorry butts in jail. And I don’t know about you, but I’m in favor of running these wacko nut job head shrinkers out of town on a rail and never letting them near any of my relatives.

This goes along with the liberal idea that children are really sexual beings and should learn very early to learn to be what they are; thus, the very explicit early grades sex ed they promote.

      You know how the writer of this column uses as part of his logo, "It's not personal, it's just politics". Well, so sorry to say this, but in psychiatry, that is often the case, too, not only with pedophilia and with homosexuality, but across the board. "It's not personal, it's just money-grubbing snake oil sales techniques". If these 'docs' can keep people sick by calling the abnormal 'normal' when the poor patient is suffering the torments of hell and by the way, needs constant care, then they are assured of nonstop income. All they have to do is keep a seat warm and move those itchy fingers over a prescription pad and they don't have to worry 'bout nothin no more. They are a despicable group of godless creatures. God wants us to have health. There IS a way! Not to preach here, and turn anyone off, but good Biblical principles can turn most situations around-and without hurting anyone. Word, Bro!

    Lieberals intend to destroy every vestige of decency in America. Soon rape, incest, bestiality, and necrophilia will be recognized as being normal by our diseased government. We keep underestimating the depth to which lieberals will sink. We must recognize the lieberalism as a clear and present danger to America and we must remove all lieberals from power wherever we find them.

    The homos are mentaly ill how could another be attracted to another man? thats what i call mentally ill.

  • Monica Goldstein

    The Amercian Psychiaric Association is filled with Pedophiles! They are immoral perverts who don't care about their victims. They are already victimizing young children by siding with the perverts. They are in the process of degrading this culture by their actions. They will have to answer to God for their perversions. It doesn't matter if they are atheists or agnostics or new age, they will have to answer to our Mighty and OneTrue God for their detestable and perverted actions!

      WILL THEY EVER!!! I CAN SEE THE LAKE OF FIRE HEATING UP

  • JimRed

    When the queers took over the APA, they declared homosexuality no longer a mental illness. Have the child molesters now taken it over?

  • grama18

    Some of your posts sound like you miss the point. When they are arrested for their perverse actions with children. They
    can't claim it is a mental dis-order. BEcause it has been dis-qualified. In otherwords JAILTIME!!! instead of .OH you poor thing
    let me help you. Doctors and early release when he proclaims he is cured. Personally I think they should be shot DEAD!!!.

    • hardscrabblemary

      No, you miss the point. Not jail time or hospital time. Just run away and hide your children time. The State of New York has a provision to put these creeps into a mental institution even after their jail time is up, if a doctor says they're not cured. That can be for good. Good News! It is edgy law, but New York attorneys practice it, and this provisio is an attack on that island of sanity.

    THE BIBLE SAYS A TIME WILL COME WHEN PEOPLE WILL VIEW EVIL AS GOOD AND GOOD AS EVIL. WOULD YOU SAY WE HAVE ARRIVED AT THAT TIME?

    • BobbiSuePErson

      Nancy, that time is very close..... God help us!

    • hardscrabblemary

      Nancy-It's always been a time when people will call evil good and good evil. It is the very definition of 'crazy' and crazy has always been fashionable among movers and shakers. Wish it were end times, but I'm afraid it's not so, and that we are going to be around for awhile with these perps.

    pedophiles have to die on the gallows or gillotin, without mercy ....

  • Dr. B

    This is one psychiatrist who is fully aware that pedophilia is a mental disorder. No apologies! Their whereabouts should be monitored at all times and they should be kept away from schools and playgrounds. I also do not support same sex marriages. Don't throw us all out with the bathwater!

  • Ridge Runner

    I remember a story a long long time ago about a person that had raped several children and was walking free and done another one and they were about to let him off with more treatment and the childs mother took care of the debackle.She shot the homo dead in the court room.This is the only realy sure way thatyou can know they want do it again

    Numbers 31: 17-18

    17. Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.
    18. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

    It seems at least this passage of the bible endorses female child rape.

  • Angrysailor

    "convicted of pedophilia?" You are getting a criminal act confused with a sexual preference. Noone in the APA has suggested that any type of sexual activity with children should be lawful. They are simply saying that a mere attraction toward children is no different than any other sexual preference. Pedophilia isnt a crime. Molesting a child is. There is a difference. Most pedophiles dont act on their desires and many child molesters are not even pedophiles. You have to first understand what the differences are before you write an article on it.

  • Ann

    Obviously you don't understand the definition of pedophilia.

  • pedobear

    I hope they normalise pedophilia. Little girls are so delicious!
