October 2016 – At least two Christian scholars have recently written that American culture may already have begun the downward process of endorsing yet another despicable moral evil.
Denny Burk, professor of biblical studies at Boyce College, reported on his blog (dennyburk.com) that an academic book published in 2015 questions if sex between adults and children is necessarily wrong. The book, Pedophilia and Adult-Child Sex: A Philosophical Analysis, was written by Stephen Kershnar, a professor of philosophy at the State University of New York at Fredonia.
In the blog, Burk also quotes Robert George, Princeton University professor of jurisprudence and influential Christian conservative, regarding the book:
An academic philosophical defense of “adult-child sex” invoking standard liberal assumptions and principles. We’re now on that familiar highway going from “the conservatives are scaremongering” to “there’s nothing wrong with that, so live and let live” to “you’re a bigot for not approving.” Let’s revisit this in three-to-five years to see where we are.
