Speaking on his radio show yesterday, Rush Limbaugh claimed there was a liberal movement trying to “normalize pedophilia” by classifying it as a sexual orientation like heterosexuality and homosexuality (audio below).
Limbaugh based his claims on an article in The Guardian about the questions that science still has about pedophilia, reports Mediaite.com.
Limbaugh said: "There is a movement on to normalize pedophilia, and I guarantee you your reaction to that is probably much the same as your reaction when you first heard about gay marriage. What has happened to gay marriage?"
"It’s become normal, and in fact, with certain people in certain demographics it’s the most important issue in terms of who they vote for. So don’t pooh-pooh. There’s a movement to normalize pedophilia. Don’t pooh-pooh it. The people behind it are serious, and you know the left as well as I do. They glom onto something and they don’t let go."
"What is their objective? They want us to all think that pedophilia is just another sexual orientation. You know who’s gonna fall right in line is college kids, just like they have on gay marriage, just like they do on all other revolutionary social issues."
