Facing The Truth: Can Child Molesters Be Cured?

Life is full of chances and opportunities. We take different and distinct endeavors in order to succeed. While most of us follow the right path, others fall off the wagon and take the dark road. Mistakes are always a part of every man’s life. But as we have said, the world gives several chances at correcting them and redeeming ourselves. But the problem is how about those who are not willing to take those chances given to them?

When a person commits a crime, he goes to jail and receives the punishment. Depending on the kind and gravity of the offense, many convicted criminals have taken a second chance at having a normal life after prison. But in the case of child molesters and sex offenders, is giving a second chance worth it? Can they be actually reformed or cured?

When someone commits murder or robbery, it’s considered a crime. But when a person molests or sexually abuses a child, that’s more than a crime – it’s more likely an addiction as well. There is no scientific evidence proving that child molesters do not have the ability to change. But as you will see from the millions of cases, sex offenders are likely to abuse again right after serving time in jail. For a parent’s point of view, keeping their children away from registered sex offenders is not an issue of discrimination – it’s just that these people are more likely to harm children simply because they have done it in the past.

The hunger and need to molest or abuse a child is almost impossible to fight for these people. It is not merely about the sexual need or desire, but more on the behavioral or mental disorder of the abuser or molester. It is actually a battle between logic and addiction. While a part of the molester says that it is wrong to harm a child, a bigger part is telling him to do it for the sake of satisfaction and contentment. Addiction is just too hard, even impossible to fight. So the only way molesters and abusers can live on with their lives is to continue giving in to their addiction.

Finally, it’s actually quite unfair to totally close our doors to people who have previously molested or abused a child. However, by being cautious and vigilant, parents and other concerned individuals cannot as well be blamed if they choose not to let them enter their lives. It’s an unfortunate fact that while most of them may have regretted committing past mistakes, there is still no guarantee that they will not do the same thing all over again.

Documentary - "Innocents Lost" reveals about the kidnapped, sold, starved, beaten and set to work round the clock, surviving on rubbish tips and road sides; given to the gods as punishment for a sin committed by a family member; neglected and written off as worthless; dumped in Gulags for stealing a loaf of bread. These are the innocents who are lost. "Innocents Lost" is a hard-hitting documentary film about crimes against children around the world. This documentary brings to the screen the faces and voices of children who are, for a brief moment, given a chance to be heard, a space to speak of their silent unhappiness.

I recently stopped being one of Jehovah's Witnesses over this issue. Their church policies allow for child molesters to participate in the door to door ministry regardless of therapy or reform for the offender. This allows for someone with that addiction to keep track of homes that have children. For instance I learned one of my fellow Jehovah's Witnesses was guilty

the person who perpetrated upon me was my oldest brother, I found that he was more satisfied if I cried and begged him to stop. This is the part of the addiction that I cannot get over, the sadistic part.

But is there real research on this and not just personal opinions? One person commented about her brother. What happens if a little biy is molested over a period of time and then by the time he is 7 years old he is caught in the act with even younger kids? Is it already too late? Has the damage already been too much for him to be safe around younger children forever? I am trying to find real documentation.
