Even talking about the two in the same breath is offensive IMO and reeks of bigotry.
As for homosexuality 'stealing and programming children', well, there aren't enough eye-rolls in the world to respond adequately to that.
Agree that it is very unhelpful to compare paedophilia to homosexuality. Sex between two consenting adults is fine but between a child and an adult is hugely problematic (which is why I don't think it will ever be legalised).
