Question of the Day #26: Pedophiles
So we've all heard this one. The most dastardly of appeals when the Christians attack homosexuality is to liken it to pedophilia. But wait, if we dare say that pedophilia is abuse of a child and that homosexuality is a consentual relationship between adults, certain obnoxious Christians (you know who) may accuse us of making an arbitrary distinction of at what point a child becomes an adult, or that we're making a judgement based on our feelings that a child who engages in sex with an adult is being abused.
So how do we know that pedophilia is wrong?
