Pedophilia is "Human Nature," Sex Offender Says

Posted: 06:32 PM ET

By AMY PARMENTER

Before Jeffrey Brisson, 30, was sentenced Friday to 45 years in prison and 25 years of special parole for the sexual assault of children who had been placed in his care, he defended pedophilia as “human nature” and railed against a society he said just does not understand.

He read calmly from what appeared to be a prepared statement and said our culture refuses to acknowledge that everyone has deep-seeded feelings of pedophilia and lust for children.  Most people fantasize about having sex with children, he said, further defending his actions by mentioning child beauty pageants.

He continued to argue about the “ignorance of the system that legislates human nature.”

The judge said that should Brisson ever be free, he would have to be monitored almost constantly. He will also be on the sex-offender registry.

wow, what a genuine sicko. No mr Brisson, everyone does not fantasize about sex with children, but apparently you do. He doesnt understand that its not a question of wether its a natural desire or not, its a question of community health, and sex with children is bad for society and i dont think anyone would argue that. People fantasize about murder too, that doesnt mean it should be tolerated. Hope this guy stays put away for a LONG time.

Mr. know it all's comment-In psychology, this is known as transference-the placing of your tendencies and problems on others in order to justify your own problems as common to all. I will admit that the problem may be widespread-Worldwide child porn networks, Sheriff's trying to catch on-line predators, third world countries that are visited for the express purpose of sex with children, and we just had the big 8 year old bride that was summarily divorced after a huge public outcry. Maybe it is time to realize that there is a problem with a free for all society with absolutely no restrictions. This business of going downhill with no brakes does not sound like good policy!

sadly to say , but i believe there's a lot of people just like this person within our society , he's calling his desire to lay with children .a natural desire. there's a lot of people making this claim that, it's natural to feel this way ,and lay with whom ever. instead of this person acknowledging that he has a problem, he's inviting others to come out the closet and stand along with him in how he feels. he truly sounds like Gay rights Activist, Harry knox!

Dear Mr Dave of Detroit. You are ridiculous. All of your posts are left wing and off the wall. I am tired of reading your #*&% opinion.

Any sex that is outside of marriage and between a man and woman is wrong. This is what happens when you try to justify your particular sexual preferences. Sexual sin is only one of the sins of our lower nature, the bible names them all and the good news is that the Lord helps us overcome our wrong desires and live a moral life. We all have some type of sin in our life to overcome. We should not throw stones at other people, but we should not accept our own sins or try to justify them. The Lord says if we confess sin he is faithful and just to forgive us and clense us from our particular sin. Our lives are happier when we overcome sin, rather than live in sin because God punishes sin because he loves us. Just like our natural fathers punished us when they saw us going in a direction that could harm us or other people.
