BECAUSE IF YOU'RE NOT A PRIEST...:

No Jail for Two Homosexual Rapist Teachers: One judge was keynote speaker at Lesbian and Gay Bar Association Dinner (Terry Vanderheyden, January 19, 2006, LifeSiteNews.com)

Judges in two separate cases of rape by homosexual high school teachers have let the rapists off without prison.

Brockton Superior Court Judge Suzanne V. Delvecchio handed Gregory Pathiakis, 26, of Brockton, Mass, a suspended, 2 1/2-year sentence, followed by five years probation. He admitted to sexually molesting a 15-year-old student on December 23, 2003. WorldNetDaily reported that in a written statement read in court by his father, the Middleboro High School student told Pathiakis, “I feel you deserve jail. You are a disgrace to all teachers.”

“He was in a position of authority over these kids,” lamented Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz. Cruz asked the court for a minimum of four years in prison. That the rapist did not go to jail he said was “disheartening.”


...raping boys is just a lifestyle choice.

This case, along with the judge in VT who sentenced the rapist of a 10 year-old girl (who was 7 when the assaults began) to 60 days in jail, makes one wonder if child rape is now basically a misdemeanor in New England. And what does the Chief Justice in MA think about sexual freedom now?

Cameron Diaz warned us that, if Bush was elected rape would be legalized.

We would have to know a lot more about these cases to decide whether there was a problem. It doesn't look right, and it could be a trend, but it might also be the long-standing practice of not locking these people up.

The judicial and prosecutorial politicians hear from the corrections politicians that kiddie-diddlers create a lot of problems for them inside, so they keep putting them out on the street. Mandatory minimums were suppose to put a stop to this practice, but there are ways to get around these.

Pedophilia is the next evil they seek to normalize and has to be if homosexuals are to be considered normal:

At present, society is ecouraged to view homosexuality as an inborn orientation. A person does not choose it. From this innateness flows its legitimacy.

Study after study suggests that pedophilia, too, is an innate orientation. Sooner or later the legitimacy will come. Small wonder that in New Jersey some years back feminists called for lowering the age of consent to 12 or 14, ostensibly to allow ready access to abortion. If you mustn't compel people to suppress their urges, might as well legalize them somehow.

Coming from those who are mostly on the nurture side of the nature/nurture debate in most other matters, this whole line of reasoning is peculiar, indeed.

Ed, I don't believe reasoning is part of the process. Feelings trump all.

And then everyone who still finds them distastefull will be labeled with some pseudo-scientific term like "pedophobe", and children will be taught that they can't refuse any advances, otherwise they will become "pedophobes" too, and to be a "pedophobe" is even ickier than anything the pedophiles want to do.

Of course, the catch phrase for all this can be "do it to the children."

and upon this rock will the hopes of the gay advocacy be dashed. every time they get to the point where children are on the front line, they are sent packing by outraged parents. eventually enough people will reach the point where they consider homosexuality is a problem (to society) in and of itself, and then the party's over. of course this is only an issue until an in-vitro test for gayness is available.

The Presbyterian Church will split. They keep pushing for homosexual pastors.

They can't give in to that and not polygamy.

However, medical tech will make homosexuality an option for your designer baby.

You can't blame the gay rights lobby or secluarists for the Vermont case. Blame Judge Cashman, who was guided by his faith to let the child rapist off without jail time.

Cashman, 62, is a burly, balding and bearded figure, and a strait-laced ex-military man. Soon after he was appointed to the Vermont District Court bench in 1982 by a Republican governor, Cashman and his wife dropped out of their square dancing group because he feared it was unjudgelike.

"I can't do the same things everyone else does," he said in an interview several years ago, describing the life of a judge as monk-like.

"The one message I want to get through is that anger doesn't solve anything. It just corrodes your soul," said Judge Edward Cashman speaking to a packed Burlington courtroom.

Chalk one up for "turn the other cheek".

More like, split some more cheeks.
