Dutch pedophile political party disbands

AMSTERDAM (AP) -- A Dutch political party formed by self-described pedophiles has voted to disband itself after failing for the second time to participate in national elections in June.

The group, which sought to lower the age of sexual consent to 12, says it could not get the 600 signatures necessary to win a place on the ballot in a country of 16.5 million. It would need 60,000 votes to win a seat in the 150-member Dutch parliament.

The party also failed to meet the threshold in 2006, when its creation caused an international sensation.

The group's founders said Monday that debate about the party had prevented any substantive discussion of its goals.

The Party for Brotherly Love, Freedom and Diversity, known by its Dutch acronym PVND, said members voted Sunday to dissolve.


*snerk*

In other news, the "People's Movement for the Daily Kicking of Puppies" also failed to gain traction on the national political stage...

Melliferal,

It's good to hear that the dutch have some common sense. It amazes me that these self described pedophiles can even risk banding together to try and form a party to push their agenda.
While here the United States we can't even be open enough to discuss providing health care for the needy or enacting some type of financial reform without shouting each other down.
As much as I despise the behaviors of men who are pedophiles. I must admire the dutchs people respect about all of their citizens being able to speak their beliefs no matter how distasteful they maybe. Because how can you address something if nobody is willing to talk about it.

Mike
