I woke up to see this headline in my twitter feed, Greeks Angry after Pedophilia Named 'Disability, and thought this had to be a joke, but sadly it isn't.
In further efforts to destigmatize pedophilia and immorality in society, such as homosexuality, now Greece is redefining pedophilia as a disability. Of course disability groups are upset about this label because a disability is normally defined as an inability or limited ability to do something physical,such as work,peform certain tasks or activities or transactions. However, pedophilia has not been proven to be a disability, other than perhaps a mental disorder, but it is something that can be controlled with therapy,prayer,morality,laws and lifestyle choices. Pedophiles are not limited in their ability to work and peform daily activities or tasks!
Disability groups in Greece are angry at a government decision to recognize pedophilia as a disability. The Labor Ministry says pedophilia was added to the list for medical assessment purposes and to help decide who should get financial help.
But the National Confederation of Disabled People calls the move "incomprehensible."
They say that pedophiles will now receive higher disability pay than people who have undergone organ transplants.
"It's really not serious to grant Peeping Toms a 20-30 percent disability rate, and 10 percent to diabetics, who have insulin shots four or five times a day," NCDP leader Yiannis Vardakastanis, who is blind, told the Associated Press (ITALICS).
Greece, who's been fighting to avoid bankruptcy for three years, has severely cut spending on health and welfare programs. Also, pervasive abuse of the welfare has prompted the government to reassess thousands of disabled people.
Do you think they will reconsider this decision and not offer pedophiles a ticket to collect government disability payments while they are fulfilling their sexual fantasies??blog comments powered by Disqus
