  2. I read with care the part of section 152 that was quoted, and I have to say that before we do anything else, we need to clean up the language in the CCC. The way it's written, any person who offers to shake hands with a child and remarks (before or afterwatrds) to anyone else about the attractiveness of said child can be found guilty of a criminal offense! We need to make that language a whole lot less ambiguous and less open to interpretation!

    Next thing we have to do is get rid of any language that infers or directs that these crimes have anything at all to do with sex. They are related to sex the same way gluttony is related to nutrition. The mechanics are the same; but the motive is different.

    Do those two things first, then we can actually start the process of cleaning out the trash, because we will have cut away 90% of the "defense" ammunition.
