RCOB Alert: pedophiles are at it again

If anything can produce a RCOB (red curtain of blood – i.e. outraged) reaction in me, it’s pedophiles trying to justify their behavior.  Robert Stacy McCain warns us that they’re at it again.

Tuesday, while I was working on a column for the American Spectator, I checked Twitter and encountered the outrage involving a hashtag, #HeartProgress, that is being used to promote pedophilia. As conservatives have long predicted, the crusade for the normalization of homosexuality (the LGBT “rights” movement) has encouraged pedophiles to make similar arguments for their own sexual “rights,” seeking to add “P” for pedophile to the acronym: LGBTP.

The people promoting #HeartProgress — including Ernst Steiner, Clive Martin and Eric Lewin — are making arguments so offensive that I almost suspect them of being trolls attempting to provoke an angry response. Yet we know that there are indeed such people in the world and I reported on the pro-pedophile activism movement before, so what arguments would we expect these freaks to make, other than the ones that Steiner, et al., are now making on Twitter? That is to say, they are claiming that hostility to pedophiles is a form of prejudice, like “racism” and “homophobia,” which must be eradicated for the sake of equality and progress.

. . .

For many years, I have watched as gay activists have hijacked the rhetoric of the civil rights movement in a way that was clearly dangerous — and, I would add, entirely unnecessary. The claim that gay people were suffering unjust oppression prior to Lawrence v. Texas (2003) was absurd, and as a matter of public policy and constitutional law, I think everything Justice Scalia said in his dissent in that case was correct.

Here we are then, in 2017, and we find #HeartProgress flying the rainbow flag in favor of pedophile “rights.” Do you see now that conservatives were not wrong in warning against the slippery slope? We were not paranoid, or promoting slanderous stereotypes, when we warned that the arguments for the normalization of homosexuality would, as night follows day, be used to justify or excuse child molestation.

Like I keep saying: People need to wake the hell up.

There’s more at the link.

I’m a Christian, a retired pastor, and a retired law enforcement professional . . . but despite all those things, I must confess that see red whenever I encounter a pedophile trying to justify or normalize his or her conduct and attitudes.  Frankly, if every such person were to suddenly be removed from our midst, permanently, I wouldn’t shed a single tear for them.  The world would be a much better place for their absence – and a lot safer for our children.

I wish hell on no-one.  It’s an eternity in darkness, one that I fear I merit myself, thanks to my own sins.  Nevertheless, if anyone deserves hell, then right at the head of the line are pedophiles and their supporters.  Jesus made that pretty clear.

At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”

Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.  Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.

“Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”




  1. Once ANY 'non-traditional' relationships are ok, then ALL of them are OK, or at least it takes a very good argument to say some are not OK, and I haven't heard any good argument, but only vague assurances that 'it' will never happen ('it' meaning whatever type of relationship is being discussed).
    Polygamists have been trying to build on the success of the gay marriage movement for the last few years, so far without success, but there is no argument that I know of to allow gay marriage and not allow polygamy (or, for the women, polyandry).

  2. I really don't care what consenting adults do in the privacy of their homes. The key to that statement is, I don't have to participate and I don't have to look at it in a public place.

    Touch someone under the age of consent or even speak to someone under the age of consent about you physical desires? A rope and a short drop spares further children from your problems. Yes, I know the problems with that, when you are 19 and your favorite squeeze is 17.

  3. Some humans are mature enough to hunt in the forest alone at age 7 with a rifle and shoot rabbits for the dinner table. After years of learning from such increasingly responsible experiences, they become sexually mature at age 15, and go to work for a living, set up an independent household, mate, and start a family. This is the historical American experience.

    But you want to stop all that. It's hard to see how this forced infantalization is anything other than banning teaching the slaves to read because it ruins them for being slaves.

  4. Heard it 150 years ago: 'The black slaves will be given their freedom by whites after they learn to govern themselves.'. Which gets the cause and effect of human maturity exactly backwards. What produces maturity is the exposure to the consequences of bad decisions; what prevents the development of maturity is Socialism. Socialism was first used in America to ethnically cleanse the Indians/Native Americans/First Americans/descendants of Asian economic emigrants.

    There's a quote where Jefferson disparages sports in favor of carrying a gun, because exposure to the consequences of killing a person develops ethical maturity.

  5. @Anonymous at 4:07 PM: You've unmasked yourself. Now go away. Preferably, do something terminal to yourself while you're at it, so the rest of us don't have to put up with your waste of our oxygen.

  6. Wow, you couldn't have asked for a more perfect illustration of your point than that. Porking little kids is akin to abolishing slavery! About the only think he didn't pull in was mentioning Greek pederasty and holding that up as a model for society.

  7. Peter,

    Does this blanket condemnation of paedophiles include those who merely looked the other way and said nothing? or are they forgiven because they were merely following the example of their bishops?


  8. @Stephen: Yes, it does include them. That's why I said "pedophiles and their supporters". To do nothing was – and still is – to confer tacit support.
