You do have a reason to believe that, though. He's already told you he wants to. The fact that he's said he won't act on his pathology as long as it's illegal is hardly enough of a safety net to allow him unfettered access to children.?

What, are we living in Minority Report now? Sorry, but the disbelief that someone is capable of resisting their urges isn't enough to warrant 24/7 surveillance and potential removal from their workplace, IMO.

Really, what is it exactly you'd be "reporting" him for, aside from inappropriate discussion in the workplace? Or is that the angle -- get him on that, and use it as an excuse to dismiss the creepy pedophile you don't trust?

I'd be reporting that someone entrusted with taking care of children has said that he'd like to rape them. It's not fucking complicated, You keep the fucking perverts away from the children. Jesus, I can't believe this place sometimes.

Well, I guess you mean reporting to the employer and not the police, since I don't think *wanting* to rape a child is a crime.

So that's all you'd say to the employer? Omitting the part about how he absolutely refuses to act on his desires? And then expecting all work history up to that point to be disregarded, so that the disgusting, creepy pedophile can be thrown on the street where he belongs?

So you're willing to wait around until AFTER he's already raped a baby (a BABY) to decide wether it's dangerous to let someone who says he wants to rape babies take care of babies?

That's how the legal system works. Or should we open up a precrime department and fix the world your way?

Entirely irrelevant, but I was abstracting on the john, and it occurs to me that this kind of workplace interaction wouldn't happen to begin with if the pedophile in question didn't think you'd believe him when he said he refused to act on his desires.

Kind of like if your best friend told you in confidence, "man, your girlfriend is so, so sexy. If you weren't dating her, I'd hit it so hard. Oh god, I'd love to be with her, but while you're dating her, I wouldn't do anything." Do you still trust them to hang out alone?

A school in Hephzibah, Georgia, is drawing national attention after sending consent forms to parents informing them of a new policy of using paddling as a form of punishment for students, CBS affiliate WRDW-TV reports.

The Georgia School of Innovation and the Classics (GSIC), a kindergarten-through-9th-grade charter school, is bringing back paddling — spanking a child on the behind with a wooden board — as a form of discipline. Superintendent Jody Boulineau told WRDW that about 100 parents sent back the forms, and one-third gave the school consent to paddle their child.

"In this school, we take discipline very seriously," the superintendent said. "There was a time where corporal punishment was kind of the norm in school and you didn't have the problems that you have."

Boulineau said parents can deny giving permission to the school. The form sent home explained the steps the school would take to discipline children with a paddle. "A student will be taken into an office behind closed doors. The student will place their hands on their knees or piece of furniture and will be struck on the buttocks with a paddle," the form, which was obtained by WRDW, reads. Students will be paddled after their third offense. The form also says "no more than three licks should be given."

The paddle will be 24 inches in length, six inches in width and 3/4 inches in thickness, the form specifies. Parents will be notified if their child is to be paddled by an administrator, according to the form, which CBS News has not independently verified.

Transcription of portion of apparent form:

1. Corporal punishment will be administered using a “three-strike” policy.

When a student is sent to the office for disciplinary purposes, a member of the administrative team will discuss the infraction with the student and notify the parents. A non-corporal punishment may be given at this time, and the student warned of the future possibility of a paddling if improper behavior continues. These steps will be taken for the second occurence of an infraction. Upon being sent to the office for the third time, the student will receive “strike three” and may receive corporal punishment.

2. Parents are notified that their child is to be paddled.

3. The student will be taken into an office and the door closed.

4.The student will place their hands on their knees or a piece of furniture and be struck on the buttocks with a paddle.


The paddle is made of wood and should not exceed the 24" in length, 6" in width, and 3/4" in thickness.


"It's just one more tool that we have in our disciplinary toolbox that we can use," Boulineau said.

would you report a pedophile coworker ?
This comment ensued
Say you have a co-worker who proudly spills out his inclination to have sex with babies but won't because its illegal.
How do you respond ?
I would report him and do everything I can to ensure he no longer works with me.


I wouldn't report because I'd think of it as a sick joke first. Who goes around telling other people that? Its much more likely he's an idiot rather than a pedo.

Now if I was convinced he was serious, then it be equally likely that I'd be convinced he was serious about not touching any kids, so either way I'm fine with just ignoring him.

Glad to know the kiddies can rely on you.

Well I like to live dangerously

I eat rare meat, I go outside without a sweater, and play video games or read while driving the car.

What real assurance do I have that its just an offhand comment and not a serious declaration of intent? None. Assuming I believe him, why think he'll break the law if I thought he was serious about being a pedophile? Take the emotion out of the argument, and you'd have just a co-worker who has an odd taste in jokes.

Logically speaking, it doesn't matter whether he works with kids or the elderly, because the above statement works either way. So I don't think its the right thing to report him at all because you'd either be sure he's joking, or be sure he won't break the law. Only someone steeped in bias would callously twist his words into the no-win scenario you've driven him in to. By your actions, why shouldn't he go and rape the next baby he sees? Either way, he'll get the cops on him, probably lose his job, and be ostracized. Might as well indulge, right?

And before you ask, yes, I would totally leave him alone with any kid, even mine. It would be hypocritical for me to display distrust after defending him, and I'd be pretty sure of correctness to the point where I don't think he's a threat. Sometimes you just gotta take chances Dio

We're not talking about wishing something was legal in a vast generic sense, we're talking about someone who is responsible for the care of small children telling you he would like to rape them. You're saying this is a job he should be permitted to keep?

Having no reason to believe that he would act on his desires or otherwise commit a crime, yes.

What if I said nothing and he ended up screwing the neighbour's three-year old, in spite of his protestations that he would do no such thing? I'd rather have his ostracisation on my conscience than that.


I'd rather respect his right to privacy than play "what if?" games. Ruining someone's reputation/socially ostracizing them/putting myself in the line of fire for potential slander or harassment lawsuits isn't something I want on my conscience.

I encourage you to consider the question posed by others in this thread: where do you draw the line with hypotheticals?

he has told you that he would like to fuck children. That isn't speculation. You're saying that if you worked at a job in which you were responsible for working with young children, and a coworker told you he wished he could have sx with them, you wopuld not think that was any cause for alarm or anything worth reporting to your employer? Becaus if that's the acse, then you should be fired too.

Maybe, but I'm not employed by the Mind Police, and I won't risk ruining someone's reputation, or inciting potential harassment or finger-pointing, over what they wish was legal without the intent to commit a crime.

I've never understood how anyone could look at the beauty of a giraffe, and say, “evolution did this.” No, God did that! Or how anyone could look at the majesty of a tiger, and say, “evolution did this.” No, God made that tiger. I've never understood how anyone could look at a spectacular sunset, with all its brilliant colors and awe, and say, “Isn't evolution wonderful?” No, God is wonderful. With God's handiwork all around us, a person would literally have to not want the truth to remain ignorant. Evolutionists are willingly ignorant, and the Bible even says so, 2nd Peter 3:5, "For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water." The universe was formed by the Word of God. Evolutionists are willingly ignorant of this self-evident fact.

Quote# 140413

Peter: Given many of the same people that refuse to serve us cakes have voted in a serial adulterer as president we aren't treated equally.
But both those activities go against Jesus principles for all morality and the comparison with the second one is beyond contempt.

Martin: You can hardly complain about adultery when you promote sexual immorality. And the alternative they had was a woman who not only connived at her husband's serial adultery and also undermined those young women he took advantage of. Not only that but she also campaigns to kill babies. Trump certainly appears the more moral of the two.

Peter: What part of Jesus teaching that all morality is based on love God and agape love of neighbour are you finding so difficult to grasp? To say trump evidences this and merits support on that basis - ongoing support from white conservative evangelicals - is risible.

Martin: Trump certainly provides evidence that he cares for the poor in the USA, whose jobs are being taken by illegal immigrants, and helpless infants aborted for no other reason than the convenience of the 'mothers'.
And what does Clinton do to show her love for God and her neighbour?

Peter: You do realise the election is over? The support for trump from white evangelical religious conservatives is ongoing and nothing to do with clinton.
When you disgracefully try to scapegoat "illegal immigrants" for economic problems you are closer to home. So much for giving two hoots what the bible, staunch defender of immigrants, has to say.

Martin: And the whining from the left is never ceasing. That people reject your politics is because it doesn't work and it isn't compatible with Christianity. Why shouldn't Christians seek to influence the president?
It's a fact that illegal immigrants do take work away from the poorer strata of society. Curiously the left seem to have given up on the working man these days.

Brothers.. Think about it this way. Very few democracies can withstand Marxist subversion from within. Even the once mighty US of A is on track to becoming a Communist state in the future given their indoctrinated youth, mass open border immigration from those who will vote Far Left and also who run their media. Then you have these Globalists (who are all fundamentally Marxist) who run their banks, who do not identify racially as white and do not see themselves as American in any real fundamental way.

Now knowing that this is true, and knowing that they, once in control will strip YOU of your freedoms and that of your children’s: which would you choose: cutting out the cancer (which can be uncomfortable) or allowing it to slowly spread and hope it’ll go away? Hope your democratic institutions (the states immune systems) is healthy enough to fight it off? What if the cancer keeps growing and you can predict where it will lead to, would you then be willing to let go of democracy in order to smash communism with the iron fist that is Fascism until democracies can be restored?

I would. Remember this: the fundamental difference between communism and Fascism is that Fascism restores the rule of law, the rule of nature, the idea that the state should serve the people and not the other way around and that the nation state is sacred. It also restores property rights which is why investment flourishes. The nation state under international Globalist Marxism is something to be hated. Which would you choose??

Quote# 140406

Barry Soetoro, better known by pseudonym Barack Hussein Obama, is a Kenyan national who claimed to be the rightful 44th President of the United States. He is a homosexual atheist liberal sympathetic to Islam and Wicca and he hates Christianity because of the truth and clarity it provides. Soetoro also claims to have been born in Hawaii. He is also known as Bathhouse Barry, due to his affinity for sodomite acts.

Soetoro is "married" to Michael Soetoro, a male transsexual who prefers to go by the name "Michelle." Soetoro also claims to have been born in Hawaii, and provided a fake birth certificate to prove that he is a relentless liar, a fact documented by then-Congressman Joe Wilson.

Soetoro won the 2008 presidential election illegitimately due to his birth in Kenya, and won primarily because of the fact that he ran against milquetoast RINO and pretend war hero John McCain and apostate Mormon and RINO Willard "Mitt" Romney in 2012. Soetoro picked sexual assault perpetrator and general idiot Joe Biden as his running mate to cater to blue collar working class voters.

Soetoro's main accomplishments include the "Affordable" Care Act, which accomplished nothing except raising health insurance premiums through the roof and then throwing more people onto the weak sauce government welfare program Medicaid. Soetoro also nominated two far-left affirmative action picks to the Supreme Court, and he nominated Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State so she could make it to where effeminate sodomites and extremely butch lesbians could lie about their sex on their passports, thus causing all sorts of national security incidents where men identified as women got flagged because of their penises.

Soetoro caused racial tensions to skyrocket in the US, presided over a sluggish economy, threw order out of the window in favor of moral decadence, and his presidency was an illegitimate, illegal, nightmarish farce. His successor, Donald Trump, pledged to undo the damage Soetoro did, but has instead continued down the path to wanton destruction.

Quote# 140183

Polygamy is a common practice in Africa and among Muslim believing people. It is the practice of a man having two or more wives. It has been practiced almost as long as man has been on earth. Since polygamy has been here a long time, many people think it is alright. Is that true? No! Sin has been with man longer than polygamy. Is sin alright? No! Just because something has been here a long time does not make it right. For a thing to be right it has to be accepted by God.

What is God’s attitude toward polygamy? God is the one who brought marriage into the world. He made the first man, Adam (Genesis 1:26). He saw that it was not good for Adam to be alone. He then made a “wife” for Adam. Notice God did not make “wives” for Adam. If He had wanted Adam to have more than one wife, He would have made him more than one. One was enough. God knows best.

Man in his different cultures has brought many ideas about marriage into the world. Some of man’s ideas agree with God’s plan. Some of man’s ideas do not agree with God’s plan. This is true with polygamy. Polygamy is a “man-made” idea. It is not in agreement with God’s plan for marriage. Anything that does not agree with what God has done or said is sin. God’s plan is one man and woman (wife) for life (Genesis 2).

There are many examples of polygamy in the Bible. The first person to be a polygamist was Lamech (Genesis 4:19-24). He lived six generations after Adam. He was a murderer. Nothing good is said about him.

Abraham was also a polygamist (Genesis 16:1-5). His wife, Sarai, was unable to have children. She gave her slave, Hagar, to be Abraham’s wife. Hagar had children for Abraham. Sarah then became jealous of Hagar. This marriage was then full of troubles.

Another polygamist was Esau. He was the firstborn of Isaac and Rebekah. Esau married two Hittite women (Genesis 26:33-34). They caused much grief to Isaac and Rebekah. Polygamist marriages affect more than just the man and his wives.

Gideon was a great and brave leader. He had 70 sons from many wives (Judges 8:30-31). What kind of a father could he be to 70 sons? Not the kind that God wants us to be.

King Solomon had 700 wives, princesses, and 300 concubines. His wives turned his heart away from God (1 Kings 11:3). His downfall as a king was a result of his practice of polygamy.

Nowhere in the Bible can we find polygamy doing any good. Everything that is said about it shows it causes troubles. That has not changed. Today polygamy still causes many marriage problems for those who practice it.

Let us see some Bible principles that teach against the practice of polygamy. Genesis 2:23-24 says that a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife. God did not say that man was to be joined to his “wives.” He said that man was to be joined to his wife. That is one and only one!

Paul compares the husband and wife to Christ and the church: For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church... (Ephesians 5:23). In Ephesians 1:22-23 we are told that the church is the body of Christ. There is only one body (Ephesians 4:4) so there is only one church. A man can have as many wives as Christ has churches. Christ has only one church so a man can have only one wife. Nowhere does the Bible speak of a man (one) being over wives (many) and that being right with God.

Matthew 19:3-9 speaks about divorce. Jesus Christ shows that God never wanted man (or woman) to divorce. The same is true with polygamy. God does not want a man to have more than one wife. Jesus said that a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh. Jesus spoke of one man and one woman marrying. He said that marriage is made up of one man and one woman. The two make one flesh. When a man has more than one wife he is sinning. God hates sin.

In 1 Timothy 3:2 we are told that an elder must be the husband of one wife. Why not two or more? If it is a good practice, then why should not a church leader be a polygamist? The reason is that God does not want that kind of a marriage. Those who practice polygamy are sinning in God’s eyes. They cannot be church leaders nor church members.

Let us notice some problems with polygamy in the Bible. First, it causes strife and jealousy. We see it in the lives of those who practice it today. Joseph was sold into Egyptian slavery by his brothers because of jealousy from a polygamist marriage. Second, no man can be a proper husband by being a polygamist. Third, he can’t be a proper father as God intended. If a man has many children how can he be a father who brings them up chastening and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4)? Fourth, polygamy causes a man to go away from God rather than closer to God. We should do nothing that causes us to go away from God.

What must a polygamist do if he wants to become a Christian? First, he must realize that he is a lost sinner. He then must believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God (Mark 16:16). Following his belief in Christ, he must repent (Acts 2:38). That means he must get rid of all sin in his life. In his marriage, he must get rid of all his “wives” but the first one. After repenting, he must confess his faith in Christ as the Son of God (Romans 10:10). He is now ready for baptism. This baptism is a burial in water (Romans 6:3-4). It is for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38). This is what everyone has to do to become a Christian. Have you done these things? If not, you are not a Christian. If we can help you to become a Christian, please write and let us know.

Abraham, Jacob, David, and Solomon practiced polygamy because that was part of the ancient, near-east culture they came out of. God chose a people, with their in-grained culture -- warts and all -- but that doesn't mean God actually endorsed it. In fact, every place this polygamy occurs, there are always consequential problems with it.

It is frustrating as a man to see female staff members of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam walking around in public wearing sexy tight spandex pants.

A fourty-something sleeping with a young girl around 14 is not ANY different from a fifty-something sleeping with a young girl around 24 if the maturity levels of both girls are similar. Yet, one of the two is accepted in our society (albeit with a few jokes and dirty looks) while the other is ILLEGAL. Do you see the great chasm of illogicality? One that would swallow all the mountains in the world as though it was a singe drop of sand in the Sahara?

Again, there can be equally forceful, abusive and damaging same-age partners for every way older one. In fact, the older person being also with more life experience, may, you know, not be a total degenerate sick bastard and actually want to honestly and sincerely love that person and be nice and kind. Like, you know, how adults who are in relationships are generally perceived to feel towards one-another and why weddings and engagements get all those "awwws" and whatnot. It's the same exact situation that through the prism of our society gets turned into a sick situation when in fact it could equally as much be a beautiful one. Making up for all the sick situations among same-age partners that the "common eye" sees as nice and loving, as if there has to be a balance stricken. Well, I say it's time to start being more outraged with all the sick abusive bastards who're into making the life of adult women miserable and let the little girls that happen to be happy stay happy.

[On the term "right-wing SJW"]

It's intrinsically nonsensical, and let me explain for those of you who have not read SJWS ALWAYS LIE, which is, as even people who don't like me very much will tell you, the go-to book on the subject. Social justice is about the convergence of all individuals and institutions towards what they consider to be the maximum possible justice for everyone, and so "social justice warrior" does not refer to tactics, it does not refer to techniques, it refers to objectives. And the objectives of the SJW are absolutely antithetical to the right wing in general, and to right-wing extremists in particular

Alot of people don't realize that the concept of social justice goes back to the 1800s. That's right. A commenter said social justice is socialist justice. Many figures on the right have condemned it, probably the best example being Friedrich von Hayek. He wrote a really good essay on the subject back in 1971, so this is all going back much further than most people realize, and what we're seeing in the SJWs today is really just the ultimate realization of what John Stuart Mill was advocating back in, whatever it was, 1851. So if you look at what social justice stands for, it stands for the very things that we're now seeing from the tech companies, it stands for all of the corporations, all of the organizations, all of the Boy Scouts, all the churches, everything, being used to enforce the principles of social justice. Now, of course, what social justice specifically stands for has a tendency to mutate at any given moment. They used to be concerned about gay marriage, before that they were concerned about women in the workplace. They were concerned about black quarterbacks, now they're concerned about black coaches. The specific target frequently evolves, but the general objective of forcing everybody's opinion, and everybody's thinking, and everybody's actions to conform to the narrative, that is the primary objective.

Obviously that is not what we on the right wing support or stand for. We don't accept any of it. Social justice, and especially the convergence that it entails, is diametrically opposed to all of us who value Aristotelian logic, value Christianity and Christian morality, and so it is absolutely insane, it's nonsensical, to confuse the two or to conflate the two. Now, you can say quite reasonably that we don't want politics in our comics. I don't think that is very plausible for comics that are going to have any relevance to current events or to the interesting philosophical and ideological questions of the day, but that's not a nonsensical statement, it's just a self-limiting statement.

Here’s a mini thread to clarify what a “gulag” is, for those who only have heard it being used as a buzzword and why sending a bigot to one is actually a compassionate, non-violent course of action...

So... first of all,the USSR no longer exists, therefore "gulags" no longer exist. May as well make a case against orientalism but USSR =/= Russia. Russia is NOT governed by a communist party. Got that? Okay, good.

So... gulags. First myth to debunk: "u work until u die in gulags!!!!".

The Soviets did away with life sentences and the longest sentence was 10 years. Capital punishment was reserved for the most heinous, serious crimes.

Why? The penal system was a rehabillitary one and self supporting, a far cry from the Western, capitalist notion of prison. The aim was to correct and change the ways of "criminals". If it couldn't be done in 10 years, it couldn't be done at all.

Much like wider Soviet society, everyone who was *able* to work did so at a wage proportionate to those who weren't incarcerated and, as they gained skills, were able to move up the ranks and work under less supervision.

Educational work was also a prominent feature of the Soviet penal system. There were regular classes, book clubs, newspaper editorial teams, sports, theatre & performance groups.

There's so much more to add but the reality is none of you actually care to learn about gulags. You don't care about what fascism actually is and how it fuelled by anti-communist, orientalist myths and lies propagated by the CIA.

Long story short, friends, the ideas of TERFs and anti trans bigots literally *kill* and must be eradicated through reeducation. Science must be decolonised and de-essentialised in order for this to happen.

Think about it. How was leftism introduced? Can you pinpoint when and how exactly it became the norm to dye your hair in all sorts of colors? Can you pinpoint when the left become so violent?
Can you pinpoint when degeneracy became so blatantly obvious in media?

Think media. Very few girls posted themselves half naked online, then it was hip, and now every other one does it?
Think males. It was okay to be masculine but now it's being framed as toxic to be who you are naturally inclined to be and now you're a nazi for being yourself?
Think the LGBTQABCDEF community. It was 2, then 3, then 4 genders, and now they're introducing pedophilia??


Normalizing behavior desensitizes those who are exposed to that behavior/content/etc.
Porn? Masturbation? Sedentary lifestyle? University right after high school? LGBT? Accepting mental disorders and not treating them? Depression?
People suddenly turning LGBT(tumblr, twitter, brigading leftie subs)? Remember we saw this recently in a study that says that a group of friends quickly becomes LGBT once a member turns https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0202330
People board the train and it's easy to introduce and change norms once the train takes off, all you have to do is slowly introduce them and then constantly bombard them. Think Syria and the US (wsj article)
The US has been involved in the middle east... all the time? It just became the norm to be involved in the middle east? Also take into account that all these countries have issues to worry about in their homeland, including but not limited to mass refugee immigration and drumpf.

The point I'm trying to make is that by employing the same strategies, we can introduce the masses to our ideology. People will joke about it but inside they will feel uneasy and the more they see it the further they are pushed to the other side.

I watched a documentary about this. Apparently his victim forgave him, then said she was acting older than she was during the incident. Oddly enough, she said she wanted to forget about the whole thing.

I think when these facts are all piled together it is clear that people who cry rape as though it's the worst thing anyone could ever do need to take a chill-pill. Sure, rape is horrible, not nearly as horrible as famine or serious sickness or being burned alive or another million more-horrible-than-rape things.

Pedos have garnered the infamy of gays of years gone by, now if a famous law-breaker is a pedo-rapist specialization he gets WAY more hate than if he's a rapper-rapist type. (these are weak to psychic attacks and resist ghost and poison btw)

Do you know what we can do to fix this? Stop overreacting every single time a such incident occurs. Just like gays became normal (like they were back in Ancient Greece...well...everyone was Bi then) so will pedos eventually.
