    Orientation. Do you think pedophiles choose to be attracted to children? Do you think heterosexuals choose to be attracted to those of the opposite sex?

    At this point, probably not.

    Right. So everybody chooses except for heterosexuals. The world revolves around mac and his experiences.

    That's actually a good question. I would add, do pedophiles understand they are victimizing children when they force themselves sexually on them?

    Okay then. Here is my argument. If you were to argue that I should never engage in sexual behavior with men because there are perfectly good women around, it would pretty similar to me arguing that you should never read Koontz because there is perfectly good Stephen King you could read.

    In other words, I don't choose to be sexually aroused by men and you don't choose to be entertained by Koontz.

    And yet you consider the behavior, to have sex or to read, to be completely choice?

    Assuming that it were a sin to read Koontz and a virtue to read Stephen King, would you give up the former for the latter for the rest of your life?

    1. Most pedophiles do not engage in sexual behavior with children.
    2. Of those that do, they typically rationalize their behavior in order to justify it, and may twist it so they believe they are helping or educating the child.

    Then, with regard to #2, can we agree there are certain sexual desires that are harmful and should not be acted upon?

    I think some do and some don't. I've read things where they claim both ways. I don't know enough about it though to know who's telling the truth. That's a good question though.
