05 Sep Silent? No Longer!
by Rachel Allison
If you haven’t felt the need to speak up for decency…if you haven’t had the time to get involved…if you are expecting the depravity in the world to never affect you and those you love…it’s time to change your approach to the world that is closing in on all of us.
There is a battle being waged between good and evil, and we who are committed to home and family are on the front lines where the battle is most relentless and brutal. Those who have nothing positive to say about the family will most likely never have children of their own. But we can bet that their harmful rhetoric, destructive philosophy and amoral behavior are directed at OUR children. Diabolical perversions are taking place right here “in the good old USA” that could destroy those we hold dear…attempts to soften public attitude toward pedophiles?….impossible to believe? Read on.
Pro-family advocates who attended a controversial pro-pedophilia conference in Baltimore last week say they were profoundly shaken by what they saw and heard.
“As a former law enforcement officer I’ve dealt with situations involving suicide, homicide and other violence. That said, I’ve never felt the level of spiritual oppression and evil that I felt in that room,” Liberty Counsel Action Vice President Matt Barber told LifeSiteNews.
“These mental health ‘professionals,’ and self-described pedophile and ‘gay’ activists were inexplicably able to cavalierly discuss, in an almost dismissive way, the idea of child rape,” Barber said. “They used flowery, euphemistic psychobabble to give quasi-scientific cover to a discussion about the worst kind of perversion.”
The organization B4U-ACT sponsored the event in Baltimore last week, which was attended by pro-pedophile activists and mental health professionals. The conference examined the ways in which “minor-attracted persons” could be involved in a revision of the American Psychological Association (APA) classification of pedophilia.

Because such amoral values are so totally beyond anything that I could even conceive, my first reaction is to dismiss it as something that society will simply never allow. But forty years ago who could have imagined that public prayer, the Ten Commandments, traditional marriage, and virtue would have been maligned as they are today. Who would have conceived the depravity portrayed daily in the media? Society’s decline has taken us far past the gasps heard when Rhet Butler addressed Scarlet with, “Frankly my dear I don’t give a damn.”
Have too many of us allowed Alexander Pope’s words to become applicable?
Vice is a monster of so frightful mien,
As to be hated needs but to be seen;
Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face,
We first endure, then pity, then embrace.
Silence lends legitimacy to the behavior. Our apathy has encouraged moral decline for too long. Writing letters to legislators, congressmen, and newspapers is a start. A call to talk radio should be seriously considered. Blogs, emails, facebook entries to voice our dissatisfaction with conferences such as this one held in Baltimore should be something with which we all get involved.
Our mantra must be, “Silent No Longer!”
