California Democrats Pass Bill That Protects Pedophiles

pedophileCalifornia Congresswoman Jackie Speier, Democrat, wants to federalize a state law that protects pedophiles.  No, that’s not the main part of the bill, known in California as SB1172.  Speier’s bill is designed to prohibit counseling to change a person’s sexual orientation.  “Sexual orientation change efforts’ means any practices by mental health providers that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation,” the bill says. Under the bill’s language, a mental health counselor could be sanctioned if there was an attempt to get a pedophile or gay individual to change his behavior or speak negatively about their behavior as it relates to sexuality.

When the law was passed in California, Republicans did attempt to add an amendment specifying that pedophilia is not covered as an orientation, but the Democrats defeated the amendment.  What the Democrats either failed to realize or didn’t care about was that, by labeling pedophilia a sexual orientation, discrimination laws apply and pedophiles cannot be barred from jobs such as teaching preschool based solely on their pedophilia.

The law does not specifically mention pedophilia, but according to Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute, “This language is so broad and vague, it could arguably include all forms of sexual orientation, including pedophilia.  It’s not just the orientation that is protected – the conduct associated with the orientation is protected as well.”

There was an injunction granted against the legislation and it appears that  a date for arguments in court has not yet been set.  Whether this law survives or not is yet to be determined.  Whether it does or not the fact remains that California Democrats have acted to protect child molesters and could end up providing them with protection from discrimination.  At least one Congressional Democrat wants to do likewise on the federal level.  This is absolutely disgusting but also not the least bit surprising.

    “SECTION 1.
    The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:
    (a) Being lesbian, gay, or bisexual is not a disease, disorder, illness, deficiency, or shortcoming. The major professional associations of mental health practitioners and researchers in the United States have recognized this fact for nearly 40 years.”

    It says about pedophilia whatseover, and it clearly NOT defining it as a “sexual orientation” at ALL.

    Which makes you a pack of liars.

    • Iggy, the fact that the bill does not define sexual orientation is the problem. Since the bill doesn’t define sexual orientation, the vagueness of some of it could be construed to include pedophiles.

      And if this bill wasn’t intended to include protection for pedophiles why did the Democrats oppose an amendment which clearly stated that pedophilia is not a sexual orientation?

    • Because both the clinical and social definitions of “sexual orientation” include ONLY age-appropriate sexual attraction (adults to adults and adolescents to adolescents). It does not include pedophilia and has not since a systematic definition of sexual orientation was created in the 1970s.

      The typical profile of the same-sex child molester is white, male, middle-aged and a self-described heterosexual.

    • Under this new California law sexual orientation could now include pedophilia. Age and race are irrelevant.

  • LD Jackson

    Completely disgusting. These people are absolutely sick with their desire to protect and further the agenda of the sexual perverts. We should wonder no longer why our country is in the shape it is in.

  • And what does that say about the stupid people who keep electing these sickos?

  • Perhaps these perverse behaviors will be treated like other sins and vices such as drunkenness (alcoholism) gluttony and sloth (hoarding, OCD) so that the “victim” can be coddled and “helped” instead of being confronted and exposed for their demonic and punishable acts. We need to quit with the newspeak and call a spade a spade.

    • We are a victim society now. Nothing is ever your fault (if you’re a liberal). It’s always someone else’s fault and the government will make sure you get compensation and victim status while punishing those who label your behavior correctly.
