We’ve been covering the ever expanding list of cases where adults are victimizing kids, and are left scratching our heads and wondering why? Has pedophilia always been this frequent, or is all of these stories a manifestation of something new? For example, here are some recent cases covered at The Other McCain.
And those are only the posts over the last several days. Even more disturbing is the fact that so many from the political and cultural left are all too willing to defend, explain away, or justify these crimes against children. For example, we saw professional colleagues defending Neil Erickson, a teacher convicted of having sexual contact with a 14-year-old male student. And, of course, regular readers will know that there are quite a few supporters of Kaitlyn Hunt; an adult who recently plead guilty to having sexual contact with a 14-year-old high school freshman. Her family and supporters not only want to make this legal, but they have led a campaign of lies, threats, intimidation, and general harassment against anyone who opposes them. In the Ericsson case, the garage owned by the family of the victim was burned to the ground, and threats were painted on the side of the family home. Going back to the case of Kaitlyn Hunt, the family of her victim were subjected to harassment, death threats, and Hunt supporters even try to “dig up dirt” on the victim’s mother.
Here is a sampling of posts from the Conservative Hideout regarding the stories.

#FreeKate Supporters Continue to Lie in Order to Ban Those That Expose Them, Display Anti-Christian Hatred
For me, I see this as a lack of morality. For decades now, we have been pushing moral and religious teachings out of our public conversation. We systematically banned prayer, and mentions of Christmas, with some schools even banning the colors red and green Christmas time – all to marginalize Christianity, and more importantly, God. The results seem obvious; without moral teaching, our people lack morals. without a moral center, people justify all sorts of behavior. And at this point, the next frontier of ” progress,” is the legalization of sex with children. As the Bible has predicted, we are living in a world where what is good is evil, and what is evil is good.
And, it’s only going to get worse from here.
Note: The American Psychiatric Association has historically stated that there needs to be a five-year difference in age between perpetrator and victim to be a case of pedophilia. Kaitlyn Hunt was 18, and her victim was 14 at the time her crimes took place. She’s included in the story because her family and supporters have openly stated the objective of legalizing sex between adults and minors. I believe this to be an incremental step towards the normalization and legalization of pedophilia.
