Also the raelians have a website [www.nopedo.org
], which works against pedophillia and are helping society to denounce pedophiles. There is also a message on the home page of the raelian website www.rael.org for pedophiles (bottom of page)
Serioulsy do you think that the raelians would advertise their pedophile activities ?
It's not because the raelians write disclaimers about pedophilia that there is no pedophile activity within the raelian movement.
That's the usual stance of pedophiles declaring that they love children, that they would never hurt children, that if they found a pedophile they would kill him.
The problem is that sometimes there are some discrepencies between what one says and what one does.
But I guess, as long as people like "consciousness" will propagate this rumor, it will continue.
What I heard directly from a raelian member in their summer headquarter is : "in order to respect nature, children were also having sex. He said he had two children and that it is a great privilege for a parent when rael accepts to have sex with a children."
That is why rigorous methods are so important to get to the bottom of things. Knowing what is and is not rumors is science and help society overall by targeting the real problems instead of going after the fog of the rumors. But it is interesting how a rumor can propagate for those who study that phenomenon. We have an example right here with what "consciousness" has written.
The French cult prevention organization has published a couple of interesting articles about pedophilia in the raelian movement (http://www.prevensectes.com/rael74.htm)
Here is a trial report (personal translation): "Sarine county court has stated that the content of the books that contributes to the [raelian] movement doctrine can 'behind any doubt lead to illegal behaviours towards children'
And here is a translation of the first lines of an article written by Mr Deslauriers (who was a member of the raelian movement). This article was published in Apocalypse International, number 64 :
"... Love or sexual relationships between adults and children, that are strongly condemned by the society and its laws, revolts most parents. Here are some personal thoughts, in the light of the teaching of our creators, the Elohims. These thougts aim to start a dedramatization of this topic. Pleasure shouldn't be reserved to adults. Sexuality shouldn't either....From birth sexual organs are working : it means that they are ready to give pleasure to the individual, even if it's a child. And a child who learns earlier to draw pleasure from his body, from others' bodies,
from his senses, develops his intelligence earlier. Pleasure generates stimulis. Thus an awakening of the sleeping cells happens and the indiviual's potential intelligence increases thanks to the new resulting neuronal connexions..."
10 years after this article, Vorilhon (Rael) who had lost his trial against the newspaper "La Liberté" (see above) was constrained to disclaim Deslaurier's article and that's what he did in Apocalypse International, number 108.
