Incest isn't the only grave sin that's being promoted by the cultural revolutionaries. Last fall, the major gossip website Gawker strongly attacked the social site Reddit for having a "Jailbait" subsection, which displayed sexualized images of girls of junior high age for "catering to pedophiles." So what is Gawker doing now? Catering to pedophiles.

This juggernaut website published an article on September 7 titled "Born This Way: Sympathy and Science for Those Who Want to Have Sex With Children." The writer, Cord Jefferson, cited "a growing number of researchers, many of them out of Canada, whose work suggests that pedophilia is an illness deserving of the public's sympathy the way any brain disorder is. Some of the scientists say pedophilia is a sexual orientation, meaning that it's unchangeable, regardless of how much jail time or beatings or therapy someone is dealt."

Where are the national media outlets that are still pounding their anvils on the front pages and TV segments against the Catholic Church and their struggles with pedophilia? Nowhere to be found.

Jefferson argued, "If pedophilia is a sexual orientation, that also means it's futile to send pedophiles to prison in an effort to alter their attractions. Doing so is akin to sending a homosexual child off to a religious-based institution that claims it can 'pray the gay away.'"

This jaw-dropping article concluded that the weakest in our society -- he listed blacks, women, Latinos and gays -- "are still in no way on wholly equal footing in America. But they're also not nearly as lowly and cursed as men attracted to children. One imagines that if Jesus ever came to earth, he'd embrace the poor, the blind, the lepers and, yes, the pedophiles."

Jesus would embrace every sinner ... who is ashamed of his sin. Shame and judgment have been banished in most of our pop culture.

Perhaps Gawker will next try and convince Nick Cassavetes to make his next daring indie film with "tender and affecting" scenes of pedophilia which "signal no judgment."

There are so many lows, and so little time.
