Pedophilia Advocacy Knocks Down Prominent ‘Conservative’ Gay
Gay nationalist ‘conservative,’ Milo Yiannopoulos, had been invited as the keynote speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the most important conservative event in the United States, but he was quickly disinvited after videos surfaced of him defending sex between men and boys.
The videos were posted on Twitter by a group called the Reagan Battalion, which “bills itself as a conservative news source,” USA Today reports.
“We are talking about 13-25, 13-28, these things do happen perfectly consensually,” Yiannopoulos said in one of the videos.
The first video, which the Reagan Battalion shared over the weekend, is from a 2016 interview on a podcast called The Drunken Peasants. In it Yiannopoulos denounced the “arbitrary and oppressive idea of consent” and said, “People are messy and complex, and actually in the homosexual world particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men, those coming-of-age relationships, the relationships in which those older men have helped those young boys to discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable, a rock, where they can’t speak to their parents.”
He also said such relationships do not constitute pedophilia. “Pedophilia is not an attraction to somebody who is 13 years old who is sexually mature,” he said. “Pedophilia is an attraction to children who have not reached puberty.”
After discussing his sexual relationship with “Father Michael,” which he allegedly had as a teenager at age 14, the interviewer, Joe Rogan, said, “It sounds like molestation to me… It sounds like Catholic priest molestation to me.”
Yet, Yiannopoulos did not condemn the experience. He said, “It wasn’t molestation.”
“That’s absolutely molestation,” Rogan shot back.
Even though Yiannopoulos was clearly a sexual abuse victim himself in the clutches of a Catholic priest, he replied, “I’m grateful for Father Michael. I wouldn’t give nearly such good head if it wasn’t for him.”
“Spotlight” seems to fit Yiannopoulos’s case, but he does not seem to have disliked his abuse.
Yiannopoulos, who is an editor at the conservative Breitbart, became a hero in some nationalistic right-wing circles over fiery rhetoric and disdain for political correctness, especially on college campuses. Earlier this month his speech at the University of California Berkeley was canceled after protests of his appearance turned violent. Even Trump got involved by threatening to pull funds from the school.
Many conservatives had criticized CPAC for choosing Yiannopoulos as its keynote speaker because they do not see him as a traditional conservative. Instead, Yiannopoulos is seen as the figurehead of the alt-Right movement, a movement that prides itself in nationalism, which many accuse of racism and anti-Semitism.
Yet, the pro-pedophilia videos abruptly destroyed his keynote opportunity.
“Due to the revelation of an offensive video in the past 24 hours condoning pedophilia, the American Conservative Union has decided to rescind the invitation of Milo Yiannopoulos to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference,” ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp said in a statement Monday.
Dr. Michael Brown said,
“First, it was an error for CPAC to invite Milo to keynote, despite his rhetorical brilliance and his ability to dismantle and expose today’s ridiculous PC extremes. It’s one thing for Milo to speak on college campuses and other settings, where he can also be himself, including using his full range of profanity, vulgarity, and gay flaunting. It’s another thing for CPAC to celebrate an out and proud homosexual as one of its champions (after all, that’s part of being a keynote speaker at a conference of this kind; you are invited because of your leadership and your voice)… while CPAC is a political organization rather than a religious one, if it fails to hold the line on gay activism, it will cease to be truly conservative.”
Brown also said,
“Milo drew attention to the fact that many older gay men are involved with much younger gay men (commonly called “boys,” according to Milo), a practice defended in 2013 by the influential gay journalist Michelangelo Signorile, who noted that, ‘Historically, gay men have engaged in intergenerational sexual encounters, brief romances and long-term relationships — among consenting adults — probably much more than straight people have.’”
“It is no secret that gay activists have often been at the forefront of pushing for the lowering of the age of consent. It is also no secret that gay literature through the centuries has celebrated the ‘love’ of grown men and boys, and in these cases, there is no doubt that they were minors rather than young men.”
The attempt to associate homosexuality with conservatism will produce an automatic divorce from the most important ally of conservatism: Christian values.
Conservatism can survive without homosexuality, but it cannot survive without Christian values.
Earlier this month, Rev. Scott Lively prophetically warned about “conservatives being enticed to embrace attention-hog Milo Yiannopoulos as a hero of conservatism: run away!”
He also warned that the union of nationalism and homosexuality has a dark precedent: Nazism.
The new union of nationalism and homosexuality will not destroy the homosexualist movement. It will bring the homosexuality movement into the conservative movement, giving gay militants the supreme privilege to advance their ideology through the Left and the Right at the same time. It will destroy the traditional union between the conservative movement and Bible-believing Christians in the United States.
The Bible never condemns the homosexualist movement. It attacks only the homosexual behavior, because thence flows every evil, including the homosexualist movement.
If the conservative movement rejects the Bible, it cannot be surprised when a “conservative” gay leader is caught condoning sex between men and boys.
Interestingly, when Lively’s article on Yiannopoulos was made available in Brazil, some Catholic nationalists attacked it because, in their view, there is no problem for a conservative leader to be an open gay. Yet, a pedophilic Catholic priest somehow “produced” the “conservative” gay Yiannopoulos.
And Breitbart and CPAC worked to present him, to the U.S. and the world, as a model of conservatism. CPAC is politically so important that even President Trump is scheduled to speak at its event.
Breitbart, CPAC and other conservative groups need more Bible-based Christianity and no “conservative” homosexuality. There is no need to put homosexuals, who defy God by their immoral lifestyles, in conservative leadership roles, but there is a need to give prominence to the Bible and its values in the conservative movement.
Without the Bible, the conservative movement has only useless posts and prominence to offer to Yiannopoulos and other homosexuals, whose vices and problems eventually destroy conservatism.
With the Bible, the conservative movement can offer Jesus to Yiannopoulos and other homosexuals.
Conservatism without Jesus is useless and does not save, deliver and heal homosexuals and other broken people.
