What is God's purpose in sending us Angels?
God understands perfectly well the workings of the primate mind. God knows that adults cannot have a public conversation with pedophiles without losing all credibility with children. Destroying the credibility of adult status is how pedophiles will win their war against adult development and responsibility. Pedophiles will claim that they are just pooor peerseecuted maaartyrs for love. Children cannot perceive how asymmetrical their power relationship will be with a pedophile. Nor does their time horizon allow for the relevant definition of "expendable". As soon as we begin to talk to pedophiles as adults, we've only given them the visibility they need to seduce our children. They will stop the conversation there, using the tiresome old customary verbal tactics that only a child would fall for. That's the problem.
What has God done to help us? Angels are encompassed by holiness, a sacred fence. God sent 2 angels to Sodom and Gomorrah to test whether even as few as 10 righteous men would see the violation of this sacredness as wrong. In Sodom and Gomorrah, not even 10. The consequences are the textbook example of God's toolkit for addressing not only rape but also the violation of angels.
What do children and angels have in common? Just ask parents; absolutely nothing! Yet we do enforce statutory rape laws, because there is a fence around children that if violated has intolerable costs for society at large as well as the family.
What has God done to help us? We've been given innocent angels as hawk bait. Though possibly imaginary, with angels we can catch a pedophile to force him to talk about the appropriation of innocence for his own use. Reference to children is unnecessary. And as to the Pedophile, it's not personal, this is a theology discussion.
So let's begin. Angels don't need sex and it's a good thing because Angels are already very very busy. Young Angels are incorporating body parts into a whole self, while older Angels are practicing the boundaries that will define "this self" socially. The personality is fluid and not so hide bound as it is with adult humans. In fact, that's why adult humans need sex, to transcend the hide bound self and share boundaries with another. This intimacy is a need Angels don't share. Angels are already intimate with God, and any interference with God's family connections would be the same as stealing the Angel.
Angels are hungry for what they don't have, namely power: Power to decide when to go to bed, power to engage in forbidden behaviors, power to control an adult human being. These powers are denied to Angels so that they can do Angel work without distraction. And some of these powers forbidden to them would actually short circuit the Angel work that's already been done.
Nevertheless, the angel hawk doesn't want to negotiate his needs with an equal. That would mean adult privileges come with adult responsibilities, and there's an easy way out of that. Angels can be seduced by power...of course it's only play power, but since all Angels ever do is play, no one's the wiser.
How does this asymmetrical love affair play out? It's not rocket science. The Angel is given what they think they want. Step by step, an obligation of reciprocity is nurtured in addition to the enormous intensity of Angel emotions. The angel hawk can feed off this intensity, and even mirror it, which is great play. But in order to not get caught, the angel hawk has to break the Angel's integrity with a kind of time release shame bomb. He begins by recalling events that never happened, asking the angel; remember that? Remember how much fun we had? The Angel says no, I don't remember. But cognitive dissonance is introduced into the Angel's mind, a doubt. The angel hawk does this over and over until, always anxious to please, the Angel one day agrees; why yes I remember that. Then he has her. From here on out, not only will other people not be able to tell the Angel's truth from fiction, but the Angel will be lost as to what's a memory and what's a story.
When the angel hawk is done with her, he can discard the relationship without fear or repercussions. Most often he does this by "sharing" the Angel with his friends, maybe even pimping her (her boundaries are his to change). The Angel can't put together her own true memories separate from his. She can't ask for help because the shame bomb serves to turn society against her as a whore. The irony is that the Angel has no intention of being a whore, to her it's still love (in fact, she doesn't even get to keep her own money, what does an Angel need money for?).
Angel hawks have another strategy of "helping" angels overseas through the social media. This is legal. How do they help? They send money, of course; give 'em what they want. Money is power to emancipate Angels from God's dominion. Then when the Angel get's "in trouble", the angel hawk will pay for her ticket to live in a culture of a foreign language. By the time she learns the language and finds her voice, she'll be too old for him anyway. He knows the Angel avoids attention at all costs because deportation would be the worst outcome. She can never be his equal.
Angel hawks by definition seek asymmetrical power relationships.
However, in the US today there are people who's mental age does not correspond to their actual age. Judges have to discern whether the person is developmentally arrested, and engaging as a peer, or whether this is a predator. For example, a person engaged with a peer will ask for a sexy picture from his girl friend, and then keep it to himself. The angel predator will egg her on for sexier pictures as a demonstration of intimacy. Meanwhile he's broadcasting to all his friends. In other words, fallen angels can become angel hawks themselves. Or they could be developmentally arrested but sincerely doing the best they can.
Even fallen angels can only play the cards they've been dealt, by God. Or was this hand dealt by Negligence, Whore Hating, and Bend Over Backward Tolerance?
