    Furor in Greece over pedophilia as a disability

    This is probably one of the reasons Greece is broke.Giving money to people who shouldn't get it.



    The Associated Press: Furor in Greece over pedophilia as a disability

    NICHOLAS PAPHITIS, Associated Press ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greek disability groups expressed anger Monday at a government decision to expand a list of state-recognized disability categories to include pedophiles, exhibitionists and kleptomaniacs.
    The National Confederation of Disabled People called the action "incomprehensible," and said pedophiles are now awarded a higher government disability pay than some people who have received organ transplants.
    The Labor Ministry said categories added to the expanded list — that also includes pyromaniacs, compulsive gamblers, fetishists and sadomasochists — were included for purposes of medical assessment and used as a gauge for allocating financial assistance.
    But NCDP leader Yiannis Vardakastanis, who is blind, warned the new list could create new difficulties for disabled Greeks who are already facing benefit cuts due to the country's financial crisis.
    "What's happened is incomprehensible. I think there is some big mistake. The ministry should have a different policy on disability," Vardakastanis told the Associated Press. "The list contains major changes to disability quotients, which could effectively remove many people from access to benefits."
    The new list gives pyromaniacs and pedophiles disability pay up to 35 percent, compared to 80 percent for heart transplant recipients.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That's the U.S. definition of a pedophile. Peeing in an alley is now a "sex offense" and gets you registered if convicted.

    I think they're talking about people who sexually molest children.

    Sad to see that Greece is not learning what austerity means, even after all the economic hubbub that has gone on.

    The article states that exhibitionists get disability checks also.

    I'm more surprised that pederasty isn't common in Greece considering their history.

    Unbelievable. Yes, if I was a citizen of a completely bankrupt country that decided to give taxpayer funds to pedophiles, arsonists, shoplifters, and compulsive gamblers, you'd better believe I'd be protesting too!

    Somebody in the Greek statehouse ate too many over-brined grape leaves.
