The Sex Offender: the 21st Century Witch

At the end of May, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives passed H.R.1761, the “Protecting Against Child Exploitation Act of 2017.”  It is intended “to criminalize the knowing consent of the visual depiction, or live transmission, of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct.”  Going further, those convicted of such a practice would “be fined and imprisoned not less than 15 years nor more than 30 years, 25 years nor more than 50 if two or more prior offenses and would get 35 years to life, and 30 years to life if a death occurred.”  While broadly targeted at child pornography, it seeks to expand current legislation and make “sexting” — teens texting each other explicit images and words – a federal criminal offense.

Another useless law being passed, just because people want more protection and safety of their family and children, and because people are brainwashed by the myth that registrants reoffend at a high rate. This will not protect families and children, it will destroy them, and people have got to wake up.

As soon as our law writers start reciting religious anything everyone is in trouble. Law needs to be measured and justified.

It’s good to see yet another editorial out there for our cause and for rational thinking. And don’t forget, the more we click on these stories and editorials, the higher they move in search results. 😉

I found one paragraph in there comical, in a sad way, and decided to edit it in the interest of satire:

Sessions pointed an accusing finger at “the [horseless carriage] revolution” as the prime cause of the new sex crisis. “It has given pedophiles new ways to find and exploit children,” he insisted. Going further, he asserted, “Because of [the horseless carriage], no place is safe for our kids — not even our homes or schools. Any child with access to a [bicycle] is vulnerable to predators.” He added, “the [invention of talking pictures] has made it easier than ever for pedophiles to produce child pornography and share this filth with countless others.”

I’m sure this could even be pushed back to Roman times, when Sessions was just a lad, to make a similar example. The more things change,… (though one would hope we’d at some point learn from history).

HR 1761 is headed to the Senate for consideration.

There is still time to reach out to the Senate to Stop it from becoming the Law of the Land.
