Last week, I blogged bout how horrendous it is that child molesters are treated leniently by judges and by parole boards. Many of you wonder why that is. I don’t wonder – it’s because the liberal world view of those in those positions of power concludes that such perpetrators are ultimately not responsible for their behavior, because they have a disease. Those with a disease are, of course, offered compassion. Since they conclude that this can’t be a choice or an impulse not resisted or pure evil, then it must be a disease. Therefore, they believe that incarceration is useless and cruel and the real way to protect us is to put them in therapy (another liberal enclave).
The Catholic Church never turned its child molesters over to the police. They put them in spiritual rehab again and again and again. It’s the same mentality: these people are not evil; they are not criminals. They are sick and need comfort and direction.
And what about the children who were raped, beaten and murdered? Well, they say, the best way to insure that no more children are hurt is rehab therapy and spiritual guidance.
That is all complete BS. These people are evil.
There is an organization called NAMBLA – the North American Man/Boy Love Association – and they march in parades and have websites and meetings geared to promoting the “healthy reality” that kids are sexual and have a right to their sexuality, and the only reason it has been criminalized is that society is uptight.
Molesters in various forms are quite open, as their world view is that they are healthy and we are not.
Since it is not politically correct to judge any more, many folks in our society (and in positions of power) include child/adult sex as a normal variant of human sexuality (as they do sex with animals and consenting sex with extreme violence and/or near-death experiences).
As we keep dumbing down our notions of right and wrong, you will see more and more of this stuff normalized in our society.

People in San Diego are understandably enraged and confused: a convicted sex offender (who, in the past, had beaten and raped young girls and got only five years in prison) was let out on parole…to rape and kill a young woman again.
In another part of the country, Gary Becker, the fifty two year old former mayor of Racine, Wisconsin had faced up to more than twenty seven years in prison after pleading guilty to child enticement and attempted sexual assault of a child. What did he get? His sentence was three years in prison.
The judge in the case, Stephen Simanek, said (brace yourself) that he had been prepared to sentence Becker to probation – PROBATION!! – but was alarmed to discover that Becker had purchased girls’ underwear two weeks prior to sentencing.
So, instead of probation or 27 years, he got 3 years (with the potential to get out in 1 1/2 years for good behavior – probably because there are no girls to rape in prison).
In my opinion, any judge who gives less than the permitted maximum should lose the bench.
In my opinion, any Board of Parole that lets a convicted sex offender out before their maximum time is served should lose their position.
It’s a rare thing – in fact, I have NEVER read of a case of rape/molestation/murder of a child done by someone who had no previous record, so letting them out under any circumstances automatically condemns one or more children to rape and/or death. Great comment for a civilization to make, right?TrackBack URI
