If the unnatural and perverted act of homosexuality, spoken of clearly in the Word of God as an abomination unto the Lord, what would keep the pedophiles from jumping on that same band wagon, claiming that their’s too is just an alternate lifestyle? Back in the 70’s and 80’s, pedophilia was considered by doctors to be a mental disorder, but so was homosexuality! Can you see the slippery slope effect coming into play? An assist professor at Rutgers University of Law is saying that pedophilia should be protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The people with the mental disorder pedophilia should not be discriminated against, because they were possibly abused as children. She also claims that pedophilia might possibly be genetic, neurochemical, or neuroanatomic. There have been some clear distinctions made between pedophilia and child molestation. Pedophilia is the sexual attraction to prepubescent children, that is not acted upon. It is just the desire. However, if a pedophile acts on his/her sexual desires, then it becomes child molestation, therefore, a crime. Most people use the terms interchangeably, but there is a difference.
