Idea Would Label Pedophiles 'Disabled'

The late Sen. Daniel Moynihan, D–N.Y., once wrote a scholarly paper about the decline of moral standards in America titled “Defining Deviancy Down.” It foreshadowed many of the problems that beset modern secular culture today.

But I don’t think even a forward thinker like Moynihan would have been prepared for this week’s news on mainstreaming pedophilia.

An assistant professor at Rutgers law school argues that the Americans with Disabilities Act should be expanded to include pedophiles and allow them to claim special protections in the workplace.

It goes without saying that covering a pedophile under the ADA would exempt them from being fired and would prevent employers from disqualifying them from being hired in the first place. (If you ever wondered where judges come up with their zany interpretations of the law and the Constitution, it’s from law school professors like this.)

I don’t know if best–selling author John Grisham would be willing to go that far, but in an interview with the Daily Mail he attacks “America's judicial system for wrongly locking up men he believes 'accidentally' watched child pornography.”

Grisham does not go so far as to call peeping a victimless crime, but he does say, “We have prisons now filled with guys my age. Sixty-year-old white men in prison who've never harmed anybody, would never touch a child. But they got online one night and started surfing around, probably had too much to drink or whatever, and pushed the wrong buttons, went too far and got into child porn.”

Grisham makes it sound like someone accidentally going in the women’s bathroom, rather than what viewing kiddie porn actually is: Willing participation in a sordid subculture that exploits, rapes, and sometimes kills the most vulnerable among us.

When you follow Grisham’s thinking to its illogical conclusion, it’s also a travesty to arrest Washington, D.C., Rabbi Barry Freundel for hiding a camera beside his synagogue’s mikvah where women took ritual baths since — as one observer pointed out — they were going to get undressed anyway.

Fox News medical team member Dr. Keith Ablow has treated pedophiles, and he thinks classifying them as someone with a disability is a travesty, “Can you imagine a culture in which men who rape little girls describe their crimes as 'relapses' and, after getting out of jail, force employers and fellow employees to be kind to them when they reveal their problems, including their strong desires to do it again?”

Ablow rightly puts the responsibility where it belongs. Society is not to blame, although enablers like the deluded Rutgers’ professor certainly doesn’t help, instead the burden is on the shoulders of the pedophile. “Truth: It isn't the responsibility of other people — whether employers or realtors or anyone else — to dance around the symptoms of pedophilia or antisocial personality disorder. It's the responsibility of the person suffering with either disorder to control it — period.”
