Text:The acceptance of homosexuality has opened the door for child-adult sex to be sanctioned, says the Maxim Institute in their latest attack on the gay and lesbian community. Extending civil rights to same-sex couples is an example of "legislative creep", ensuring "continued change masquerading as reform", says the Institute's latest Real Issues newsletter. "If sex was a right, could anyone, anywhere be deprived of their preferences? Would there be, for example, any basis to object, morally, to paedophilia?," asks the newsletter. "Most people still have an aversion to this practice (the 'yuk!' factor), but in a society where consent is paramount, yesterday's 'unacceptables' (divorce, premarital sex, abortion, homosexuality, group sex, and soon same-sex marriage) readily become today's 'acceptables'. "It's simply a matter of time, advocacy and social conditioning. In this instance, groups such as the 'Man-Boy Love Association' already exist to promote child-adult sex." The Maxim Institute is a privately-funded coalition founded by right-wing Christian interests that sells itself as a "social research and policy organisation".
