WHAT’S WRONG WITH PEDOPHILIA?
The media never tire of chiding the Catholic Church for not responding strongly enough to allegations of the sexual abuse of minors, yet there seems to be no interest in reporting on attempts to legitimate pedophilia. Recently, many in the mental health profession seeking to normalize pedophilia met in Baltimore, an event that the media ignored.
B4U-ACT,... [Read more...]
Leading up to the anniversary of 9/11, there were many stories stating that Father Mychal Judge, the first of the First Responders to die that day, was homosexual. Not everyone agrees.
