    Good morning, CJ.

    Is it because they think they're always right in their thinking, and they don't feel a need to justify anything they do? Possible...

    CJ, you were spot on the other day about cold weather heading to my area! It is currently 7 degrees here, the water I put out for the wild critters 30 minutes ago has frozen into a block of ice, and it's just miserable! It's only projected to get to a high of 18 degrees today, then drop to minus 7 degrees tonight!

Let me ask you a question, since I believe you've brought up homosexuality a couple of times in this thread and in my view pedophilia and homosexuality aren't remotely connected except as it relates to innate brain function and I believe studies prove that pedophilia is far more a heterosexual "affliction" than a homosexual one.

    Many people, myself among them, believe that homosexuality is innate and not a learned desire - I presume you agree. Many people also believe that pedophilia is innate and not a learned desire - perhaps you agree, maybe not. If we are to accept that people don't environmentally develop a desire to become homosexual do we also accept that people don't environmentally develop a desire to become pedophiliacs?

    I ask this question because it seems to me that those who find homosexuality aberrant and abhorrent come from a similar place as those who find pedophilia aberrant and abhorrent. If one is to take homosexuality as a given in some people, something that cannot be acquired and/or changed, should not one also take pedophilia in some people as a given, something that cannot be acquired and/or changed?

    I'm not offering up this question/discussion because I believe there should be equal rights for pedophiliacs or that I'm equating the effects of homosexuality and pedophilia but as a way of saying that your suggestion that this man's "actions are utterly wrong and contemptible and he should face maximum punishment" is similar to the outlook of many in society a few short decades or a century ago with respect to homosexuals.
    The major difference as I explained before, is that children cannot consent and therefore if a pedophile acts on his desires, he/she harms someone.

    With consensual homosexuality between adults this is not the case.

    Good morning Lady P - it's still pretty cold here this morning, colder than yesterday, but not as windy - at least it's sunny!!

    Fair enough - I'm not arguing that point, just attempting to indicate how society takes a long time to understand and appreciate what is still pretty much a total mystery - that being the brain.

    Yeah I agree, but when it happens to the Democrats OPs can generally look the same. Or in either case quickly dissolve into meaningless partisan my side is better cheerleaders.

    The shameful democratic party is based on demagoguery. Libel and slander are the currency of the left. An act by an aide will instantly be trumpeted by the little Goebbels of MSNBC and the NY Times as an act by the entire GOP.

    Guilt by association was purged from civilized societies hundreds of years ago, but democrats are not civilized, democrats will smear with any contrived story. If a man has kiddie porn, arrest him and prosecute.

    But that isn't enough for the shameful democrats, no - they engage in the demagoguery that defines them, slander any (of the opposition) who ever met or worked with the man as a conspirator.

    Disgusting.

    Well in this very thread several have claimed or implied they have higher moral standards yourself included. Don't like a stereotype? Then don't become one.

    And no not all conservatives are preachy hypocrites, but there are so many as exemplified in this thread and their action in the real world that it's a trait I'm fine painting them with.

    Yeah, if he had just been pro-child-porn all this time he wouldn't look like a hypocrite now.

    It depends on what his views are on No Child Left Behind.
