It is a known fact that pedophiles have the highest recidivist rate. For the most part there is no rehabilitation other than putting them on some mind altering drugs and then they turn into who knows what. This is one of the reasons released offenders must register where they live but I for one don't believe that gives anyone living nearby with kids any comfort. Perhaps tatoo a red "P" on their forehead?

Not sure it has to do with being a Muslim but the US armed forces have reported that it is fairly common between men and boys in Afghanistan. They do not openly declare or talk about it, yet it is happening. Check it for yourself on the web, plenty of info on in.

Vocal, I dont condone any child being violated but there are more studies out there that say a pedophile or homosexual is not bread hes born with the mind he has. alot of people are messed up. I would want to kill him if he touched my daughter also. but it is not learned behavior. just like being gay is not learned

N8 also commented on Suburban Crime: Child Molester Sentenced to 24 Years. "Vocal, I dont condone any child being violated but there are more studies out there that say a pedophile or homosexual is not bread hes born with the mind he has. alot of people are messed up. I would want to kill him if he touched my daughter also. but it is not learned behavior. just like being gay is not learned" N8, Your comment isn't showing. There are stories, not studies. Research studies to become valid must be replicated yielding the same results. The pedophile and homosexual gene theory are not. Thus, they are stories that some grasp and the media reports to justify and moralize the behaviors. Sexuality is learned. Homosexuality is abnormal and unacceptable behavior in successful societies. WI is a hetro-sexual state in that we don't recognize or want same sex marriage. Chris Abel on the other hand and the Milw. Co. Board voted to grant benefits to same sex couples in a depression when the board is financial strapped raising our County Taxes. Did you call your supervisor on that one? I most certainly did. Parent's may not like it when their progeny comes home with a same sex partner but are caught in the quandary of assuming responsibility for their child's unacceptable, learned behavior and in most cases today accept rather than reject to guise their lack of parenting.

meh... not all that impressed. Lot of anecdotal, usually from agenda driven sites, with very little documentation support. There are enough real issues to tackle without going down this road.
