Earlier this year, some top US academics attended a conference hosted by an organisation called ‘B4U-ACT’.2 This group, whom the lawyer Professor Judith Reisman describes as the ‘Academic Pedophile Lobby’, want the American Psychological Association to reclassify pedophilia as just another ‘sexual orientation’.3 Sadly, one strongly suspects that, over the next twenty years or so, they may well succeed.

At the heart of Darwinism is the belief that we are nothing more than biochemistry—that all our thoughts, feelings and actions are simply the result of our genes and the environment. According to Anthony Cashmore, who is Professor of Biology at the University of Pennsylvania, “we have no more free will than a bowl of sugar.”4 If so, then no-one is responsible for their actions, and whatever we desire is really natural. Taking this view to its logical conclusion, there is no such thing as a sexual aberration, and this includes sexual attraction to children. All ‘rational, scientifically minded people’, it will be claimed, will come to see that this is true, and only the bigoted and intolerant will deny it. Pedophiles, who engage only in ‘consensual relationships’ with minors will become the latest ‘victim group’ and those championing their cause will become the new heroes of the human rights movement.

Many in the church argue that the creation/evolution debate is a side issue. They could not be more wrong! The evolutionary world-view is totally opposed to the Christian world-view, and conflict between these two ideologies is nowhere made plainer than in the area of sexual morality. According to B4U-ACT, “No one chooses to be emotionally and sexually attracted to children or adolescents. The cause is unknown; in fact, the development of attraction to adults is not understood.”5 In stark contrast to this, the Bible insists that the cause of the attraction felt between a man and woman is known—God made a suitable mate for Adam (Gen. 2:20–24).

From past experience, the likelihood is that B4U-ACT’s campaign to reclassify pedophilia as just another ‘sexual orientation’ will be supported even by prominent members of the church….
