Ayaan Hirsi Ali, get your running shoes and bolt. "Dutch pedophiles" spoken of as casually as "Dutch welders." It's pathetic to me how al Reuters will report this story so coolly, objectively, without bias but OTOH always use aggressive language when speaking of Israel.
This story is beyond disgusting and The Netherlands "hip" reputation for its liberal policies on soft drugs, prostitution, and gay marriage is just plain evil. You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig (unless you're in The Netherlands, in that case they'll probably want to sodomize it.).
(Reuters) Dutch pedophiles are launching a political party to push for a cut in the legal age for sexual relations to 12 from 16 and the legalization of child pornography and sex with animals.
The Charity, Freedom and Diversity (NVD) party said on its Web site it would be officially registered Wednesday, proclaiming: "We are going to shake The Hague awake!"
The party said it wanted to cut the legal age for sexual relations to 12 and eventually scrap the limit altogether.
"A ban just makes children curious," Ad van den Berg, one of the party's founders, told the Algemeen Dagblad (AD) newspaper.
"They make out as if they want more rights for children. But their position that children should be allowed sexual contact from age 12 is of course just in their own interest," anti-pedophile campaigner Ireen van Engelen told the daily.

The party said private possession of child pornography should be allowed although it favors banning the trade of such materials. The broadcast of pornography should be allowed on daytime television, with only violent pornography limited to the late evening, according to the party. [Only violent porn at night?

Toddlers should be given sex education and youths aged 16 and up should be allowed to appear in pornographic films and prostitute themselves. Sex with animals should be allowed although abuse of animals should remain illegal, the NVD said. [why? why stop there? - Atlas]
