What are you people smoking over there?

I heard this over the radio while coming in to work and my jaw dropped lower than the Dutch low-lands.
AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch pedophiles are launching a political party to push for a cut in the legal age for sexual relations to 12 from 16 and the legalization of child pornography and sex with animals, sparking widespread outrage.

..."An opinion poll published Tuesday showed that 82 percent wanted the government to do something to stop the new party, while 67 percent said promoting pedophilia should be illegal."

First of all, I'd like to know if the "founders" of this "party" have children of their own. If they do, shouldn't social services be looking in on them?

Secondly, I'd like to know why only 82% want the government to stop the new party and why only 67% think promoting pedophilia should be illegal. The numbers should be burning hot red in the 90s! I find that the remaining 18% & 33% are suspicious. In a matter of seconds, the Dutch people went from cow-milking, tulip-planting, clog-wearing, rosy-cheeked people I had branded in my mind to weirdos. Please Dutch people, change my mind back SOON! Don't disappoint me.
