Do people who rape children, or fantasize about sexually abusing them, deserve sympathy â€“ because they were born with the brains of pedophiles?
Thatâ€™s the question a prominent scientist and a well-known anchor at CNN have asked in the wake of the recent Jerry Sandusky scandal.
CNN recently featured a story by James Cantor, a homosexual psychologist and scientist at the Sexual Behaviors Clinic of the Center for Addiction and Mental Health who serves as associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto.
â€śIt appears that one can be born with a brain predisposed to experience sexual arousal in response to children,â€ť he wrote in his CNN piece....
Yes and while we're at it why dont we just write all depraved acts off as 'brain diseases'. Afterall, to those who deny the existence of God, evil and sin do not exist either. Disgusting. I for one cannot wait for the day that God Almighty avenges his wrath against all the animals who have hurt innocent children in such a vile way. On second thoughts, just like Amy Carmichael said, (paraphrased) to refer to some evil people as 'beasts and animals' is insulting to even Gods created animal beings. Come soon Lord Jesus! All of creation is crying out. Lets pray for his soon return, while steadying ourselves with the knowledge that there will be a great white throne of Judgement for wicked men and all their wicked deeds.
These demented lusts are just another one of the obvious tactics satan is using to destroy God's purpose for family. These people are in bondage to demon spirits of sexual perversion, they have depraved minds and satan has blinded them from their own abominations. Pray for our children body of Christ! They need our intercession, our stand for righteousness and for believers to raise our standards of holy living! We cannot allow satan to rise up against the pure and unadulterated innocence of our children!
Likening the child (the victim) to a shoe to be used for a purpose should, in and of itself, should raise some flags. I would be offended for even an adult to be referred to as a source of purpose for someone else's sexual gratificatification. Could not the same argument be made in favor of rape?

I think that they should medically remove there arms legs and genitales with no pain killers or Anastasia then once they have healed up real good drive them to the middle of a rainforest and leave them there
My opinion is that those who are preying on children should receive the death penalty... But as far as this being some sort of birth defect, I would think it is more likely the result of having suffered some sort of sexual abuse as a child and from having their imaginations stimulated with pornography.

Get thee behind us Satan.
You really need to be taught about sin, what it is and how it works.
Like the idolatrous Roman Catholic and the misguided Arminian you have a heart which seeks to reduce the effect and dominion of sin that you can save yourself.
As for a quote, "a homosexual psychologist and scientist at the Sexual Behaviors Clinic" We can only expect abomination from an abomination.
This evil hearted fool is on his way to hell and his ruler is Satan. What a sad reflection upon society that we are so evil that a perverted vile shameful and abhorrent sinner such as this is allowed to attack children in this way. May the Lord rebuke him!
Total depravity doesn't mean that we are all as depraved as we could be. Some no doubt by personality type or up bringing are by comparison worse than others. Total depravity means that our fallen sinful nature extends to every part of our being. There isn't just a single aspect of us that is "bad" leaving the rest pure and holy.
If pedophilia is just something one is born with, then it would be wrong to prosecute them when they do harm a child. If pedophilia is just some type of chemical reaction in the brain, then they could use the excuse that they are disabled and are not liable for the actions.
When I became an alcoholic by the age of 15, was it because I was born that way? No! I became an alcoholic because I chose to drink alcohol. Alcoholism, like being a pedophile, is not a disability, disease, or inclination that one is born with. They both are sinful lifestyles that people choose to live.
There is hope for people who are involved in the most wicked types of sin. That hope is named Jesus Christ, the Righteous! Stop making excuses for people who live in sin. Share with them the Gospel of Christ that will change everyone who trusts in Christ from the inside out. Excuses are not needed. The Lord Jesus is Who is needed!2Cor 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. No more excuses!
"It appears that one can be born with a brain predisposed to experience sexual arousal in response to children," How can someone with even rudimentary intelligence come up with crap like this? Does this mean little Johnny who is two years old is taking a liking to older women like Suzy, who is four? Having a predilection for those much younger than you from birth makes no sense at all. Pedophilia is a learned behavior and develops long after the lecture on the birds and the bees. I hope someone is chastised for this piece of fiction.
