The Gays and Lesbians say they were born that way and it's not a choice. I think this guy would say the same thing. But the gay and lesbians would most likly say this guy is a bad guy. How do they come to that conclusion? Bi, Gay, Lesbian and Pedophile are all the same. The penalaty is the same.

Because they're not having underage sex, smartass. Let me make it more clear as to what Homosexuality is, and what pedophilia is; Homosexuality is liking people of the same sex as you. Pedophilia is liking children who haven't hit puberty yet. If you can't understand that, than I'm surprised you can tell the difference between "Hi" and "I hate you".

Why are all these middle-age men and women have sex with there students,is it something in there DNA?Or some under line problems that needs to be research.

...I'm wondering just how long it will be before the pedophiles start rallying for rights and benfits? You know it's coming.

Chris keep your head up. We are praying for you.
