Lively Blames the Victim

Scott Lively was on an NPR show and claimed that when it comes to African laws that criminalize homosexuality, the “gay movement has really brought this on themselves.” Oh, and that such laws are necessary to stop pedophilia. Really? So why not just outlaw pedophilia, as it is outlawed virtually everywhere? This country still manages to lock up child molesters without making it illegal to be gay.

    I’m sure that Lively believes that all homosexuals are pedophiles.

  • petemoulton

    Well, at least we manage to lock up the child molesters who aren’t RCC priests…

  • RickR

    Scott Lively- working diligently and tirelessly to make the world a worse place.

    Every. Single. Day.

  • Moggie

    Is Scott Lively saying that it’s ok for a man to molest a young girl?

  • rmsc

    He also claimed that he didn’t hate gays. He just wants to go back to the ’50s when they were happily in the closet. He actua;lly said that.

    This country still manages to lock up child molesters without making it illegal to be STRAIGHT.

    You want to cut a slippery slope off at the TOP, not just below your personal position.

    Scott Lively, giving eloquent voice to that wonderful sentiment, that crowning achievement of the Lord that he worketh among men:

    By their fears, hatreds, desperate need to be accepted by an exclusive group, ignorance, propaganda, connivances, duplicity, dishonesty, dissemblance, love ye shall know them! =)

    Whew! That took some doin’ and some tremulous thinkin’ too, bub.

    Thanks for nuthin, Scotty, except a great example of how not to be a functional human being.

    Paedophilia is not an act. Paedophilia is a condition that makes one who has it to be attracted sexually and romantically towards prepubescent children (boys, girls or both). Pedophiles doesn’t choose to be pedophiles, they can’t change it. Pedophilia starts to express itself during puberty (at the age when people start to be sexually/romantically attracted to other people). Misusing terms pedophile and pedophilia leads to prejudices about pedophiles. Such prejudices cause people with pedophilia to suffer unnecessarily (regardless of what they do), they make it difficult to make a prevention programms to work with pedophiles to reduce the risk they molest children etc. See for example http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2013/08/what-can-be-done-about-pedophilia/279024/

    Let’s call child molestation a child molestation, why to use a term that means something different instead?

    It’s wrong to persecute people for who they are attracted to, whether they are heterosexual, homosexual or pedophiles. It’s not the same for the acts, you have to care about the consequences of acts. However, there is no good reason to ban sexual activities with people of the same sex, there is no good reason to ban romantic relationships with people of the same sex. So it’s wrong to ban them. Since there are people who have needs for such activities and relationships, it’s especially wrong to ban them. However, there are reasons to ban sexual activities with children. Banning them isn’t targetted against pedophiles, it’s targetted to protect children. There is a lot of pedophiles who understands that and accept such ban. But there is a huge number of people who fails to see the difference between banning sex with children and banning sex with an adult person of the same sex. Unfortunately even many people who supports LGBT rights fails to see that and feel the need to portray pedophiles as monsters to justify the difference between their attitude to sex with adults of the same sex and to sex with children.
