60-Year-Old Pedophile’s Conviction Overturned Because Child Victim Was “In Love”

Homosexuals and their liberal cheerleaders hate it when people make a slippery slope connection between the widespread acceptance of homosexuality and other perversions like pedophilia or bestiality. We say that if our culture has publicly accepted something so unnatural and irrational as homosexual behavior, then what’s to stop our cultural leaders from calling on the rest of us to also publicly endorse pederast or polyamorous “marriages” or worse?

I don’t know why they get so angry. If they have no standard of morality besides themselves, then there is absolutely nothing to stop them from engaging in any behavior that they desire. They’ll always find a way to rationalize it.

One of the things they say in defending homosexuality is that we shouldn’t be judging two people simply for “being in love.” The same benefits that a man and a woman enjoy in a marriage should be shared by everyone, regardless of whether you prefer people of the opposite sex or those of the same sex. So basically, we bigots are judging same sex couples for loving each other. How hateful we are.

Most homosexuals and their liberal sympathizers today probably wouldn’t be publicly in favor of legalizing pedophile “marriages.” Of course, considering the fact that they have no standard, I’d ask them, “Why not?” So, homosexuality is OK as long as you’re dealing with people who are a certain age. Anyone younger than that age is not OK. Where do they come up with these arbitrary rules? Who sets these age thresholds and what standard guides their decision?

Those arbitrary standards built on sand are slowly being washed away by the cultural tide. The highest court in Italy just overturned a 60-year-old pedophile’s conviction because his 11-year-old victim was “in love” with him. AFP [Agence France-Presse] reported:

Pietro Lamberti, a social services worker in Catanzaro in southern Italy, was convicted in February 2011 and sentenced to five years in prison for sexual acts with a minor. The verdict was later upheld by an appeals court.

But Italy’s supreme court ruled that the verdict did not sufficiently consider “the ‘consensus’, the existence of an amorous relationship, the absence of physical force, the girl’s feelings of love”.

The court’s October 15 decision to order a retrial was made public this month by Il Quotidiano della Calabria and slowly spread to social media networks, where it sparked heated reactions against the Italian justice system.

According to Il Quotidiano, the girl came from a poor family who had known and trusted the social worker. Lamberti was caught naked in bed with the girl after an investigation by police based largely on wire-tap evidence, it said.

I know this is Italy. But sometimes these cultural shifts start elsewhere in the world before they make it here. We’re not really that far away from seeing these types of rulings in our own country.

For homosexuality, it was an “identity” thing. It’s how they were born. How could you condemn a person for being born a certain way? They have no choice in the matter. They didn’t choose to engage in homosexual behavior. They were forced to by their genes.

Did this 60-year-old pedophile also not have a choice? Perhaps he too was “born that way.” Are homosexuals and liberals going to judge this man just because he and this 11-year-old girl were “in love?” Why? Based on what standard?
