Greece Classifies Pedophiles, Pyromaniacs ‘Disabled’

Greece has redefined the word “disability.”

Most of the news coming from Greece over the past year has been related to economic collapse, but the bureaucrats running that country have found a way to enrage its citizens without relying on its failed economic policy.

According to International Business Times, many people in Greece are  furious about a plan by the government to categorize pedophiles, pyromaniacs, fetishists, exhibitionists, compulsive gamblers, kleptomaniacs, sadomasochists and others as “disabled.”  The move suggests that such groups may also be eligible to receive state benefits.

The country’s Labor Ministry reportedly said that the decision to reclassify the word “disabled” to include these groups came after consultation with a panel of medical professionals — and that people newly covered under the phrase would not necessarily be entitled to benefits.

“What’s happened is incomprehensible,” Yannis Vardakastanis, head of Greece’s National Confederation of Disabled People, told The Associated Press. “I think there is some big mistake. The [Labor] ministry should have a different policy on disability. The list contains major changes to disability quotients, which could effectively remove many people from access to benefits. It’s really not serious to grant Peeping Toms a 20-30 percent disability rate, and 10 percent to diabetics, who have insulin shots four or five times a day.”
