Paedophilia a 'sexual orientation - like being straight or gay'
Ian Johnston @montaukian Sunday 3 April 2016 18:02 BST
- some responses out.
- = Hans-Georg Lundahl, me
- Has it occurred to anyone that the word, having at least three different meanings, is meaningless?
- [anonymised, for now]
- Wtf?! Next they're going to tell us being a pedophile is hardwired I honour DNA & that ppl are born with it.. Being a child predator is not genetic, it's a choice & it's disgusting..
- Child predator, however, has one meaning, it should not be watered down to "pedophile".
You know, some shrinks consider "pedophile" to mean a certain propensity, not a certain act. And after all, it is they who invented the word.
I still think their word is meaningless, since the "certain" propensity is one for three different kinds of act, one of which is neither predating on children, nor on adolescent boys and not necessarily on adolescent girls, that depends on how marital legislation is (if you marry a girl, you are not a predator).
- Seems like you had more of a comment that got cut out..
- "Cut out"?
- Maybe not. I thought maybe you posted only part of your comment & maybe another part got cut out for some reason.
I care not for semantics. Looking upon a child with lust is immoral & acting upon a lustful thought should be a capital offense. Pedophiles & child predators should be castrated or killed
- "Looking upon a child with lust"
What is a child in this context?
Below puberty, below legal age of consent or below legal age of marriage in your jurisdiction?
Does intention to (if possible) marry count as "looking with lust"?
"acting upon a lustful thought should be a capital offense"
OK, hardliner, I see ... in several Christian jurisdictions this has not been so.
Even in the OT some rapes were punished by rapist being obliged to marry the victim.
"Pedophiles & child predators should be castrated or killed"
I was going to ask you if by pedophiles you meant child predators, apparently not.
Why should a "pedophile" - whatever you mean by the term - who has not acted criminally on his propensity be subjected to such gross treatment?
- We all know what a child is. Semantics will not help you here. Intent to marry implies a sexual & intellectual attraction. Adults cannot be foolishly swayed in the way children can. Also, the bible never condones rape with marrying the oppresser. What you probably have read is the NIV translation of Deuteronomy 22:28, which is what that particular translation says. However that translation is corrupt, among others. It also contradicts itself because in the verse directly before it (verses 25 & 26) it also states that a raped woman shall suffer no penalty & the rapist stoned. The kjv translates the verse in Deuteronomy 22 verse 28 accurately in that a virgin woman, unbetrothed (not engaged) is found laying with a man, they must marry & dude is to pay her father. The NIV translates this verse as meaning 'raped' when it clearly does not. It says 'lay hold of' which is a sexual expression much like the phrase 'knew her' means having sexual relations such as when the virgin Mary got pregnant of the holy spirit & the text reads that Joseph ' 'knew her not'. Meaning they hadn't had sex yet, in cultural context. Anyways, the NIV got the translation wrong & the kjv has the correct translation of the verse you brought up. Read the differences for yourself. This was the verse that lead to me to question certain translations of the bible. Some are inaccurate. The kjv is closest to the original text & has a majority of manuscripts backing up it's translation. I've digressed but i felt it was important to touch on the mistranslstion of deut 22:28 in the NIV because it does basically insinuate God condones rape. However the KJV has the correct translation of said verse & it reads quite the opposite.
Pedophiles are child predators by definition. They seek to have sexual relations with small children for their own pleasure. I never said ppl should be punished for thoughts. I said that lustful thoughts an a child is immoral & acting upon those thoughts should be a capital offense. When you engage in sexual relations with a small child, your actions do absolutely no good for them as it's purely for the pleasure of the one acting.
- "We all know what a child is."
To me a child is someone who is not yet in puberty. At least when puberty is not extremely early.
I have been accused of pedophile intentions because of a girl definitely puber, but not yet of legal age of consent.
I would have, at least thought so, up to her age of consent, one year's delay, have met her at openly seen places and with her parents and so, up to when she could have asked authorities to get a dispensation to marry me.
That she rejected me was one thing. But that the whole village more or less pushed her to go on rejecting me due to me being, apparently, "pedophile" means, they had a different view on what constitutes a child than I had or have.
"They seek to have sexual relations with small children for their own pleasure"
With SMALL children, thank you, your definition of pedophile is relatively sound, unfortunately not share by that village.
- Age of consent is up to the society. Idk what it is where you are. In America, it's below the age of 18.. of course parents can give consent at an earlier age. I'd define someone as a child until the age of ab 14 or 15. Even then someone of that age doesn't really know the repercussions of their actions or give it much thought. What makes a child differ from an adult is more mental maturity than it is physical development, although it certainly still plays a role in discerning. Why did you wanna marry this young woman? If she rejected you, she obviously wasn't showing you her feelings were anymore than platonic. Seems you tried rushing the idea of marriage before the relationship was foundational & mutual. I wasn't there, but it seems the case from your description.
- Ah, I'd agree with 14 for boys, 12 for girls.
In Sweden, I got stamped as pedophile because in love with a girl under 15, declaring it a few days before her 14th BD.
"What makes a child differ from an adult is more mental maturity than it is physical development,"
There is a brain development which is basic for any kind of "mental maturity", which is physical and surer to go by than subjective evaluations of the mental.
Apart from that there are also physical developments connected to sex hormones.
- That's technically pedophilia. Keep in mind guys don't really reach mental maturity till they're almost 30. Women perhaps around 25, if I remember right. Maybe stick to women around your own age. 12, 14, or even 18 is still pretty young, mentally. These ppl (guys & girls) are still pretty foolish & naive at such a young age. Stick to around your own age as a limit, man. My niece is 12. If any dude tried marrying her, I'd be going to jail.. That's not happening.
- "Keep in mind guys don't really reach mental maturity till they're almost 30. Women perhaps around 25, if I remember right."
30 or even 25 is rather late to marry, for a woman.
I am sorry, but you are wrong.
You seriously do NOT know what a child is. You are part of a modern pseudoculture.
As was the father of that gal. Too bad, I thought he was conservative.
"Maybe stick to women around your own age."
An old maid 49 is too old to marry. A divorcee, in the eyes of God, is married to someone else. And widows, I don't want to speculate in someone else's death.
- Perhaps she thought an old man as too old to marry.. you're a pedophile. You should seek help before you end up hurting someone who doesn't share your views..
- Look here, I was 28 on the occasion.
And, no, I am not "seeking help" the way you put it.
Your view of what a pedophile is, is worthless blabla, has nothing to do with what is inherently right or wrong, unlike for instance detesting homosexuality.
YOUR'S is the view which is making Europe childless and greying and a prey to immigration.
- Here is some history:
James V of Scotland James V (10 April 1512 – 14 December 1542)
1) Madeleine of Valois (1537)
Madeleine of Valois (10 August 1520 – 7 July 1537) was a French princess who became Queen of Scots as the first spouse of King James V. (She was 16, and died that year)
2) Mary of Guise (1538–42)
Mary of Guise (French: Marie de Guise; 22 November 1515 – 11 June 1560) was Queen of Scots from 1538 to 1542 as the second wife of King James V. (She was married twice, her first spouse)
Louis II, Duke of Longueville
(m. 1534; d. 1537) (She was 19 when marrying first spouse)
Father James IV, King of Scots
Mother Margaret Tudor
James IV (17 March 1473 – 9 September 1513) was the King of Scotland from 11 June 1488 to his death. He assumed the throne following the death of his father, King James III, (1451/52–1488, reigned 1460–1488) in the Battle of Sauchieburn, a rebellion in which the younger James played an indirect role.
Margaret Tudor (28 November 1489 – 18 October 1541) was Queen of Scots from 1503 until 1513 by marriage to James IV of Scotland and then, after her husband died fighting the English, she became regent for their son James V of Scotland.
Margaret Tudor was 13 to 14 when she married James IV. Was he a pedophile? You have just spit on a large part of your own ancestry.
[He was also 16 years older]
- Always seeking to justify your sin.. Just like the bible says ppl would. I don't understand why a mature 28 year old would seek courtship with a 14 year old. Go for someone your own age. Plenty of women your age are looking for mates. Leave children alone, Jesus warns that those who offend children, will suffer great torment on judgment day.
Sexuality is sacred, along with ethnicity. That's why Christians get uptight when racism is committed & homosexuality. Ethnicity & sexuality is a gift of God & is very sacred. Homosexuality is abomination to the sacred nature of sexuality granted to us by God. So, it seems that you are then one who has no moral foundation on which to base right or wrong actions. Pedophilia is a sexual predator of young children. Its not natural. You should seek a mate your own age & maturity level.
- "Always seeking to justify your sin.. "
My sin? It would have been a sin not to try to marry.
I Cor 7:9
"I don't understand why a mature 28 year old would seek courtship with a 14 year old."
I said it was in a village, right?
I had ran out of prospects about my age, including two Catholic young ladies (that is my confession) a bit older than I. Both had been teaching what I had taught, German and Swedish.
She was, in my eyes, if not the, at least one of the most mature among my ex pupils. Note, ex, I tried nothing like that as long as I actually was a teacher. Also, I was not going for someone I thought less mature.
"Go for someone your own age. Plenty of women your age are looking for mates."
1) I had no one more there.
2) I am 49 now. An old maid of 49 is not very fertile. And I don't go for divorcees, respecting Mark 10:6 (a Bible verse which should be known on this forum) in its context. I don't want to speculate in other men's death, even if widows are licit.
"Leave children alone, Jesus warns that those who offend children, will suffer great torment on judgment day."
Oh, definitely. But she was 14, no longer a child. If you say she was a child, you do NOT know what the word means.
You are accusing God, our Creator, of tempting children, since clearly most girls of 14 like most boys of 16 can have sexual desires (and I mean vastly, the traditional limits of 14 / 12 are for about 50/50 statistics).
"Homosexuality is abomination to the sacred nature of sexuality granted to us by God."
So is masturbation, and your support of bad laws is helping these push young adults to masturbation and damn themselves.
"So, it seems that you are then one who has no moral foundation on which to base right or wrong actions."
Woah, no homosexuality here!
You are mixing oranges and very rotten apples here! Just because one thing called "pedophilia" is what used to be called pederasty, and is a homosexual predating, doesn't mean that anything you can label as "technically pedophilia" is homosexual too!
Just as both of these things, the good and the bad one, are not equal to the Satanic rituals involving babies!
"Pedophilia is a sexual predator of young children. Its not natural."
Marriage is not sexual predatorship. Marriage is natural.
" You should seek a mate your own age & maturity level."
I don't do "maturity level" on gliding scales. Either one is, or one is not mature enough to marry. Nearly all boys of 16, nearly all girls of 14, naturally are!
And I have just explained why "my own age" has by now become a no no.
KG, I missed to comment on this one:
"Age of consent is up to the society."
That is a Lutheran heresy, just as Luther imagined "society" (in his words rather "the prince") is able to legalise divorce and remarrige or even bigamy, contrary to Mark 10:6 (at least in the case of a society of state type sovereignty in majority inhabited by baptised Catholics).
No, there are limits the state has no right to touch.
