Let that sink in for a moment. The state — the official Greek government — has agreed to recognize pedophilia as a “disability.”

Greece’s National Confederation of Disabled People called the action “incomprehensible,” and said pedophiles are now awarded a higher government disability pay than some people who have received organ transplants, writes the Associated Press’ Nicholas Paphitis.

How could they possibly justify this decision?

“The Labor Ministry said categories added to the expanded list — that also includes pyromaniacs, compulsive gamblers, fetishists and [kleptomaniacs] — were included for purposes of medical assessment and used as a gauge for allocating financial assistance,” Paphitis writes.

To be clear, Greece has decided that exhibitionists, sadomasochists and pedophiles qualify as “disabled” and are therefore eligible for government support.

“What’s happened is incomprehensible. Is there some big mistake. The ministry should have a different policy on disability,” Vardakastanis told the Associated Press. “The list contains major changes to disability quotients, which could effectively remove many people from access to benefits.”

But it’s not that people might be removed from “access to benefits” that’s the problem! It’s the fact that the state recognizes pedophilia as a disability rather than a high crime against nature!

In fact, the revamped disability list gives pyromaniacs (how do you even qualify for that?) and pedophiles disability pay up to 35 percent, compared to 80 percent for heart transplant recipients.
