    In recent months there has been a push, especially on social media platforms, to make pedophilia an acceptable activity in American society.

    Rather than considering the molestation and sexual assault of children a crime, some are suggesting that pedophilia is a sexual orientation, like being straight or gay.

    And though that may sound completely ridiculous to the casual observer, California Democrats actually introduced a bill in their State legislature ensuring that convicted pedophiles and those who commit sexual crimes against children do not have to register on the sex offenders registry so long as the child in question is within 10 years of age of the perpetrator.

    Slowly and methodically, those who want to decriminalize the predatory sexual abuse committed by pedophiles are tacitly doing so one state government bill at a time.

    [TWP Editor | The Washington Pundit] State Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Assemblywoman Susan Eggman (D-Stockton) introduced recent legislation “to end blatant discrimination against LGBT young people regarding California’s sex offender registry.”

    However, under their bill, SB 145, the offenders would not have to automatically register as sex offenders if the offenders are within 10 years of age of the minor.

    As if that isn’t bad enough, we now have one of the nation’s most well known online publications asking what is perhaps one of the most ludicrous questions we’ve ever heard asked: Is Pedophilia a Crime or an Illness?

    We’d like to think that the answer to this question is, “both.”

    But Slate takes takes this even further, asking whether pedophiles should be punished for their mental illness.

    That’s like asking whether a deranged serial killer should be punished for his or her actions. A serial killer has a mental illness, but does that mean it’s okay
