Pedophilia is a sexual orientation under a new CA bill banning so-called "conversion therapy." The bill has been blocked, it might not stay that way.
Same sex marriage isn't about equality it's about normalizing homosexual behavior. Homosexuals choose to love who they fornicate with, they aren't born that way. You don't have to act on your temptations and sexual desires. Sex is an action which people choose to do and the only difference between same sex couples and married couples is who they choose to have sex with. Same sex couples choose to have sex with those of the same gender. Heterosexuals choose to have sex with those of the opposite sex. When you choose to have sex with someone of the same sex, you are choosing an indecent behavior, which is no different than a pedophile choosing to have sex with a child or a rapist choosing to force sex on someone.
While same sex couples might claim to be 'consenting adults' it doesn't make the action of their behavior any less indecent. Same sex intercourse is more dangerous and leads to diseases like HIV and AIDS more often than heterosexual sex. If we open the door for one group of people outside of the biological acceptable heterosexual couple, then we will be forced to open the door to pedophiles, polygamists, beastiality and who knows what next.
This is why we have laws to maintain moral decency. What one group believe is normal to them is unacceptable to the majority. While some may be 'evolving' due to peer pressure or political pressure for votes, it doesn't make the behavior any more acceptable or natural. As a civilized society we must protect the vunerable and protect the sanctity of marriage from those who want to perverse society and believe anything and everything is normal or acceptable behavior despite its effects on society overall.
To legalize or recognize pedophilia as a sexual orientation is only the first step towards legalizing pedophilia, just as they did with homosexuality. Where does it end??
