Oh, never mind. It's this instead, courtesy of @AmiEden, JTA:
Here we go again. The great canard of equating homosexuality and pedophilia. If you march with gays, you shteig (study Torah) with pedophiles. Q.E.D.
This, of course, is a very extreme expression of a quite common comment which inevitably attaches itself, lamprey-like, to any discussion of homosexuality in traditional or social media. "If two men can marry, why not a man and a boy?" "Would you let a gay babysit your son?" "Pedophiles believe that love conquers all too!"
So let's examine this idea. Perhaps it's a legal argument. However, this would require the law to equate consensual and non-consensual sex, which no Western legal system does. Non-consensual sex is a crime, and minors cannot consent. (Nor can a cat or a house, for those who follow that line of "reasoning".) As for marriage, that is a union of two individuals for many reasons, none of which is rape.
What about the religious argument? Well, that falls short as well: homosexual sex, if you define it as anal sex between males, is prohibited in the Torah (see my previous post, how-homosexuality-is-different/), but pedophilia is not. That's not to say that Judaism endorses the idea, but it's just not proscribed in the biblical text.
So this ends up being simply a rhetorical argument, and not a particularly compelling one. But that doesn't mean it can't damage people. Most obviously, of course, it hurts gays. Equating their sexual orientation to one of the most unspeakable crimes in modern society is horrific. Much of the hatred, fury and violence directed towards gays can fester only when we set it on the same level field as abducting and raping children.
Moreover, it hurts the case of religion. It is just as legitimate for a religious group to not recognize gay marriage as it is for it not to recognize intermarriage. Halakha has no framework for a Jewish man marrying a Jewish man, but it also has no framework for a Jewish man marrying a non-Jewish woman. That does not give a congregation the right to deny the legal privileges of that marriage, and many Jewish organizations have found their way to being OK with mixed families. When we try to portray that loving union as equivalent to an adult forcing himself upon a child, that makes us--and by association, our faith--look silly. You'd have to be morally blind to see the rainbow flag and think white panel van.
It's time for this false analogy to die. Homosexuality is no more connected to pedophilia than heterosexuality is, unless we make it so. Let's find room in that receptacle where we toss concepts like "separate but equal" and "she was asking for it" for this misbegotten equation. Let's consign it to the dustbin of history.
