A marriage and family therapist is trying to convince Google to drop a website from its popular, free blog host that promotes "boy love," sexual relationships between men and adolescents.
Stacy L. Harp of Orange, Calif., told WorldNetDaily one of the readers of her weblog pointed out the site, called "Paiderastia: The Boy Love Revival."
At the top of its homepage, the site explains it's all about "erotic/mentor/spiritual love between adolescents and adults."
Harp said, however, that not long after she exposed it yesterday
morning, the "Paiderastia" site removed its most recent posts,
including one dated April 9.
Also removed, according to Harp, was a podcast – a file with a
radio-style report – that mocked the FBI. It was created through the
podcast provider Liberated Syndication.
The site now begins with a Feb. 15 post that outlines the "Boylove
Code of Ethics," which includes this rule: "Intimacy with a boy should
never develop into a sexual relationship without the boy fully
consenting and understanding the social, legal, and health implications
of the relationship."
Harp, who also has a company called Active Christian Media, said
that as "somebody who has recovered from child sexual abuse and has
been working for four years as a therapist" she got "ticked off" when
she saw the "boy love" website.
Harp spoke with a secretary at Google's headquarters in Mountain
View, Calif., but was told she must go to the company's help-desk page
online and fill out a complaint.
Harp had done that before with another complaint – when homosexual activists slandered her online – and got no response.
Google's Mountain View, Calif., office has not responded to WND's request for comment.
U.S. officials hunting child predators have considered websites like
"Paiderastia" low priority because they are not explicit. But Harp
fears such sites could lure children.
"It plays into the normalization of it," she said. "The more you
have it out there the more it's available for children to see. Children
are easily influenced."
Perhaps many will agree with the ACLU's philosophy that this is
protected speech, but that doesn't mean you have to support the sick
and twisted stuff they are saying. Give blogger a wake up call! Email
them, and let them know how you feel. If you have a blog there,
consider moving it. Their service sucks anyway. Try out
blogsome. It is a free wordpress site, or get your own host.
