November 23, 2017 (Windy Hill Beach, South Carolina) — Yesterday, I heard a newscaster predict that it wouldn’t be long before we heard the term pedophobia bandied about in the same way that homophobia and islamophobia have been used in recent years. That rings true to me, so I went to my favorite domain registration site to see what was available. I wasn’t interested in paying the $3,000 or so price that pedophobia.com would have cost, but I did register the .org, .net, .info, and .us domains, and a few hours later, added pedophobes.com. I chose to write here at pedophobia.us, and forward the others here.
Characterizing folks who are revulsed by homosexuality or Mohammedism or pedophilia as phobic seems to me to trivialize the basis for such aversion. My personal aversion to evil is rooted in my understanding of the Bible. When WordPress setup asked me for a subhead for this blog, I chose a quote from the Old Testament: “The fear of the Lord is the hatred of evil”. When I was a child, I recall being puzzled by the “Fear God” sign held up by I fellow I recall only as a wild-eyed robed man on a street in Philadelphia. It was a real blessing to find that the Bible mentions several aspects of fearing God, including “The fear of the Lord is the study of His Word”, and “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of understanding”.
The Nov 24, 2017 issue of Newsweek includes an article which discusses a recent photograph that I’ve seen on social media that shows “No Pedo bashing” message and NAMBLA on an Antifa sign. Newsweek reports that the sign was an actually an alt-right creation, not an SJW one. A letter published today in a Kingston, NY newspaper decries Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore: “Most of the GOP has remained silent and spineless on denouncing a pedophile in their midst. Apparently, a pedophile is better than a Democrat in their minds.” I wonder if the letter-writer has read about the Democrat in that race. He’s an attorney, and one of his clients was the University of Alabama-Birmingham. In a case where UAB was sued by a former student (who the school recruited when she was but 15 years old and put her in a co-ed dorm), he argued that she was just money-grubbing.
