Pedophilia has been officially recognized as a regular sexual orientation in the United States.
The corresponding report issued by the American Psychiatric Association in its latest edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders stirred up the society.
Sandy Rios, cultural expert and talk show host on the American Family Radio network, has issued a statement on behalf of the American Family Association in response to the APA's position on pedophilia:
"Just as the APA declared homosexuality an 'orientation' under tremendous pressure from homosexual activists in the mid-'70s, now, under pressure from pedophile activists, they have declared the desire for sex with children an 'orientation,' too. It's not hard to see where this will lead. More children will become sexual prey.
"Sanity will never return to this culture until truth is reclaimed. It is not now, nor has it ever been acceptable for men or women to desire sex with children. Any who struggle with this must at least know that it is wrong before they can combat it and seek change."
The APA later claimed it was a text mistake, and pedophilia has not been classified as a sexual orientation, or preference instead of a disorder. But the AFA report was not fabricated or fear-mongering.
