to minors isn’t immoral

A sociology professor at a Virginia university said adults' sexual attraction toward minors isn’t immoral. Video of Allyn Walker, an assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice at Old Dominion University, argued that “there is no morality or immorality attached to attraction to anyone” while discussing pedophiles or “minor-attracted persons” in an online conversation Monday. “I want to be extremely clear that child sex abuse is never ever OK,” Walker said. “But having an attraction to minors doesn’t mean the person having those attractions is doing something wrong.” Walker recently published a book titled A Long, Dark Shadow: Minor-Attracted People and Their Pursuit of Dignity that “takes readers


The "plus" in LGBTQ+ stands not for HIV+ but for pedophile, now rebranded for mass consumption as "minor-attracted person."

So if the perv is only attracted to small children, but never actually sexually assaults one, he is morally good. Therefore child porn is good and healthy, because he never actually touches the child, only himself. Nice work ODU, keeping this creeper on your staff. How woke.

And yet every accommodation of the various aberrant sexual natures of people ultimately demands acceptance of the associated behaviors as well. This will be no different. It’s just the first step down the slope.

What is next after pedophilia is "accepted"? Will it be necrophilia? After all the victim can't file a complaint. Eventually all deviant human behaviors will be deemed "not immoral", using the same playbook originated for the public acceptance of abortion, homosexuality and trans. The lukewarm fall for anything. All of God's Creation is under attack. That generally doesn't work out well in the end for the minions of the Evil One. Remain steadfast in prayer and fasting, remembering we are only pilgrims in this exile life. We are to be ambassadors of Christ in a world that is not our Home.

Right from their playbook... 24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press. 25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

Stuff like this, and the grooming the K-12 teachers are doing in some of the larger schools, getting those kids used to amoral lifestyles, has sure been put on steroids since the pervert in chief stole the WH. I googled this guy, and it doesn't surprise me that he is attracted to children. No way would an adult female want that little creep near her.

does this fool, "assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice" actually believe this nonsense? the first rebuttal is: then why are there laws affixed to crimes against children, er "minors"? and if he has children, which I doubt he does, what would he think if some deviate accosted his child(ren) to seek some kind of deviant pleasure in his behaviour? Old Dominion should immediately terminate this nincompoop for crimes against logic.

To experience the attraction may not be immoral. Choosing freely to pursue the fulfillment of that attraction most certainly is. Hating sin while loving the sinner is part of the imitation of Christ, who came proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. There are scoundrels on both extremes who distort that principle to fit their own desires.

He should lose his license to teach. There are all sorts of laws and regulations on the books outlining and limiting the hydical interactions between adult and minors - consenting, or not. And he should be warned. A parent will protect there minor child from threats, and may not limit their actions to necessary force regardless of location or situation. You sir have announced your ilegal and immoral intent. We, the parents will use lethal force against you if we even SUSPECT you are a danger to our children.

Morals are a human standard of what is right and wrong. They are not written in stone, accepted morals have evolved over time but do they really evolve? Marriage of very young girls were once thought to be moral and still is by some religions (Afghanistan 2021), does that means they were once moral or were morals of the day used to justify something bad?

Pedophilia was always the goal... always. Even in the homosexual community that says it "reviles" this behavior, sexualizing children younger and younger, getting them used to "same sex" relationships and transgenderism etc was always the goal of "acceptance." Just one small ride on the slippery slope to say children even infants should be used as sodomitstic play toys by those who "can't help who they are attracted to." Truth is historically children have always been prey, even is places that proport to be Christian. ALL children as a protected class is a very recent development. Child labor, child exploitation, child slavery and indenturing, even child prostitution... all perfectly legal and accepted by the elites for most of human history. Why would we not fall right back into that vice given that the elites of our time wish for these perversions?

Iowa’s Medicaid system must cover gender confirmation surgery, a judge ruled Friday. Polk County District Court Judge William P. Kelly ruled that a state law that blocked Medicaid from covering gender confirmation procedures violated the Iowa Civil Rights Act and the Iowa Constitution—allowing trans Iowans to receive coverage for medically necessary surgery to treat gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria is defined as a “marked incongruence between their experienced or expressed gender and the one they were assigned at birth.” It is a serious medical condition that often begins in childhood, even though some people may not experience it until after puberty or even later, according to the American Psychiatric Association.

New York—Dollar Tree will soon be $1.25 tree. The company—one of America's last remaining true dollar stores—said Tuesday it will raise prices from $1 to $1.25 on the majority of its products by the first quarter of 2022. The change is a sign of the pressures low-cost retailers face holding down prices during a period of rising inflation. Dollar Tree (DLTR) said in a quarterly earnings release Tuesday that its decision to raise prices to $1.25 permanently, however, was "not a reaction to short-term or transitory market conditions."

Joe Biden filed an emergency lawsuit on Tuesday seeking to immediately reinstate its vaccine mandate for private employers with 100 or more workers after it faced a series of legal challenges. Earlier this month, the Fifth Circuit Court in New Orleans issued a preliminary pause on the order, which prevented the Occupational Safety and Health Administration from moving forward in implementing the employer rules. The Justice Department argues in its filing, according to The Wall Street Journal, that the rules reflect 'OSHA's judgment that these measures are necessary to mitigate Covid-19 transmission in the workplace, and the grievous harms the virus inflicts on workers.'

San Francisco Bay was hit by a third day of shocking looting, with a gang of thieves smashing glass cases at a jewelry store and emptying them as staff screamed in terror. The latest incident happened at a Sam's Jewelers store at the Southland Mall in Hayward around 5:30pm PST Sunday evening, and was caught on camera. Robbers—said to have been part of a gang of around 40 to 50 teens who entered the mall—wielded hammers to smash display cases at Sam's, before making off with goods. Dramatic footage shot from a nearby store showed shop workers screaming with fear as the disturbing scene unfolded.
