[Editor’s note: The following article was originally published in 2002 by the Regent University Law Review. Upon publication, it created a firestorm of controversy even though over 40 of the sources cited are from pro-homosexual articles, films, books, and statements. The author, Steve Baldwin, was able to demonstrate conclusively that there is a element of the homosexual culture that thrives on underage boys and that homosexuals are committing pedophilia at a far higher rate than are heterosexuals. Indeed, those who attempted to bring reprints of this article into Canada were stopped and questioned and all copies of this piece were confiscated. Meanwhile, Canada routinely allows pornography of all types into the country. Even though this piece was published 12 years ago, Baldwin’s theses remains valid. Indeed, in the news right now are exposes about homosexual pedophile rings in Hollywood while all over the world movements to lower the age of consent are being led my mainstream homosexuals in order to give them legal access to young boys.]
Lately, the gay movement seems to be making large gains in its war on America’s Judeo-Christian culture. Gay characters have become the norm on sitcoms; it has become fashionable to attack the Boy Scouts; homosexual propaganda inundates many of our public schools, nearly all the mainstream religious denominations have “revised” their understanding of Biblical teaching concerning homosexuality and the gay “rights” legislative agenda is succeeding beyond the advocate’s wildest imaginations.
And yet the destructive impact homosexuality has upon Western Civilization is rarely discussed by columnists, reporters, religious leaders, politicians or by anyone for that matter. Even some conservative publications have decided to ignore the issue and incredibly, have even published articles arguing for more tolerance toward the gay lifestyle.
Indeed, on the homosexual issue, conservatives seem divided between those who have a “live and let live” attitude and those who have reached the conclusion that the homosexual agenda will have to be curtailed if we are to survive as a Judeo-Christian culture. However, the reality is that there is overwhelming evidence in support of the notion that homosexuality is a sexual deviancy often accompanied by disorders that have dire consequences for our culture. A vast amount of data demonstrating the deviant nature of the gay lifestyle has been amassed but is being ignored by the media and most of the leadership of the psychological, psychiatric, and medical professions.
Trending: Does Supreme Court Need Term Limits?
It is difficult to convey the dark side of the homosexual culture without appearing harsh, but the time has come to acknowledge that many of the behaviors engaged in by homosexuals threaten the very foundation of Western civilization – the nuclear family. The most obvious manifestation of the attack on the family unit is the homosexual community’s efforts to target children, both for their own sexual pleasures and for purposes of enlarging the homosexual movement. The homosexual community and its media allies have long scoffed at this line of argument, insisting that this is the same old worn out right-wing tactic to demonize the homosexual movement and that, after all, heterosexual molestation is a far more serious problem.
Unfortunately, the truth, as they say, is stranger than fiction. Not only does the research confirm that homosexuals molest children at a rate vastly higher than heterosexual molesters, but mainstream homosexual publications, literature, conferences and books commonly promote sex with children. (1) Furthermore, homosexual leaders have repeatedly argued for the freedom to engage in, as they say, “consensual” sex with children, and blind surveys of homosexuals reveal a shockingly high number admit to having sex with minors. (2) Indeed, it is the homosexual community that is driving the worldwide campaign to lower the age of consent laws.
Needless to say, this trend comes at the expense of our children’s safety as exemplified by the incident in Los Angles involving group homes operated by the Gay and Lesbian Adolescent Social Services (GLASS). GLASS received taxpayer monies to take in troubled youth, usually referred to them by the social service departments of various Southern California counties. (3)
GLASS’s own website should have been warning enough. GLASS believes that some children are born gay — a view not backed by any science — and announced that its target was “youth who are confused about their psychosexual identities…” (4) Its web site was linked to a myriad of gay sites that target youth including a site promoting a book, Public Sex: The Culture of Radical Sex, which promote sex with children. GLASS’s founder and former executive director, Teresa DeCrescenzo, authored books about helping youth “discover” their homosexuality. (5)
It shouldn’t have come as a surprise when the California State Department of Social Services found that, “on numerous occasions beginning at least as early as l994, adults affiliated with GLASS, including staff members, members of the GLASS board of directors and volunteers, sexually abused or molested children who were placed with GLASS…” (6) The Department of
Social Services also documented that DeCrescenzo knew of the molestation but had “concluded that there was no inappropriate conduct.” (7) Apparently, DeCrescenzo believes that molestation is part of the “coming out” process that she glorifies in her writings.
One would think that a molestation factory disguised as a group home would be a good reason for the State of California to shut down the whole GLASS group home operation. Instead, the State merely removed a few individuals and put GLASS on probation, allowing them to continue operating. (8) Incredibly, even though additional molestation incidents occurred at GLASS facilities in 1999, they remain in operation until this day.
A Los Angeles Times investigation found that “in some cases, however, it appears authorities never fully investigated those reports.” (9) Indeed, not one person has been charged with child molestation or endangerment by state Attorney General Bill Lockyer, an avid promoter of the gay agenda. (10) After all, that would be hateful. There is no doubt that if such a group home were operated by heterosexuals, all the facilities would be shut down, its license revoked and numerous people convicted and put behind bars.
But it is not just youth group homes that are targeted by homosexuals but all groups that work with youth. When a California family sued the Scouts in 1993 for exposing their son to a Scout leader who molested him, the Scouts were ordered to turn over 25,000 pages of documents to the plaintiff. This unprecedented glimpse into the world of scout pedophiles revealed that thousands of boys had been molested by Scout leaders and other volunteers between 1971 and 1991 resulting in the expulsion of over 1,800 Scout volunteers for pedophile activity. (11) The documents show that some Scout leaders molested over forty boys before getting caught and that many, once caught, simply moved to a different Scout troop and continued abusing boys.
Gay activists, however, have spun the Scout molestation epidemic as a heterosexual problem, but examination of many of the higher profile cases reveal that Scout molesters are attracted exclusively to boys and many lead mainstream gay lifestyles. John Hemstreet is typical. Hemstreet is a convicted child molester, former Boy Scout leader, and currently the President of the Toledo, Ohio chapter of Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG), one of the groups leading the nationwide attack on the Boy Scouts. (12)
Incredibly, the pro-pedophile group, North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA), which calls itself a homosexual group, wrote a letter to the national Scout office urging “the Boy Scouts of America to cease its discrimination against openly gay or lesbian persons in the appointment of its scout masters. This will permit more of those individuals who genuinely wish to serve boys to do so.”
Using twisted logic, pro-gay academics have argued in various social science journals that the molestation of boys is not a gay lifestyle issue and that such men are not really homosexuals. It is simply amazing that gay propagandists and sexology “experts” have successfully bamboozled the public and the media into believing that an exclusive focus on young males should not be defined as homosexuality! But if an exclusive attraction to males – of any age – is not homosexuality, then what is?
But while on one hand, homosexuals publicly claim that the molestation of boys is not part of the homosexual lifestyle, they are quietly establishing the legal parameters to allow the molestation of boys to be exempt from prosecution on supposedly anti-discrimination grounds. In Nevada, for example, a 42-year-old man was arrested for molesting a 16-year-old boy but was not charged by the district attorney because to do so would “discriminate against a class of people.” The deputy district attorney added that to charge the man “would be singling out homosexuals.” For years, conservatives have argued that so called anti-discrimination laws would eventually lead to granting legal protections for various homosexual deviancies; it appears that that time is coming sooner than expected.
Research on the homosexual lifestyle confirm it is almost exclusively a “youth oriented” culture.
Very few gays exhibit a preference for older men. Some admit to a focus on teenage boys; some on prepubescent boys; and many cross over between categories – but all are subsets of the homosexual deviancy. Moreover, most pedophiles consider themselves to be gay. In a 1988 study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, “86% [of pedophiles] described themselves as homosexual or bisexual.” (13) Child prostitution expert Dr. Jennifer James reports that the number of boy prostitutes who identify themselves as “homosexuals” has risen from 10% to 60% in the last 15 years.
Most of the public is by now aware of NAMBLA, a group that openly promotes sex with minor boys and claims that “Boy-lovers respond to the needs of the boys they love.” NAMBLA is currently the target of a class action lawsuit by parents of children molested – and in one case, murdered – by individuals associated with NAMBLA. (14) Publicly, the mainstream gay organizations distance themselves from NAMBLA, but, clearly, this is merely a public relations ploy as the gay leadership realizes its agenda would suffer greatly if the public knew the truth.
The reality is that NAMBLA not only describes itself as part of the gay rights coalition, but its literature states one of its goals is “cooperating with the lesbian, gay, and other movements for sexual liberation.” (15) NAMBLA even “provides financial and other assistance to GLB [Gay, lesbian, bi-sexual] youth organizations. “ (16) Indeed, most NAMBLA chapters meet at mainstream gay centers such as Philadelphia’s Gay and Lesbian Community Center and its meetings and conferences always feature mainstream gay leaders and speakers. For example, Don Kilhefner of the Los Angeles Gay Community Service Center gave a speech to Los Angeles NAMBLA members on the subject of “The Significance of Man/Boy Love in the Gay Community.”
The most comprehensive gay networking website, the Queer Resource Directory, links every gay group in the country including NAMBLA and other homosexual groups that focus on youth (www.qrd.org/qrd/orgs/NAMBLA). NAMBLA marches in gay pride parades with the consent of the gay leadership. Many of the homosexual movement’s most prominent leaders endorse NAMBLA and its goals. Gay authors and leaders Allen Ginsberg, Gayle Rubin, Larry Kramer (founder of ACT-UP), Pat Califia, Jane Rule, Michael Kearns, and Michel Foucault, have all written in favor of NAMBLA and/or man-boy “relationships.” (17) Harry Hay, whom many consider the founder of the American homosexual movement, invited NAMBLA members to march with him in the 1993 “March on Washington” gay rights parade. Hay held a sign that read “NAMBLA walks with me.” (18)
Leading mainstream homosexual newspapers and magazines such as the Advocate, Edge, Metroline, The Guide, and the San Francisco Sentinel have not only published pro-NAMBLA articles and columns but many have editorialized in favor of NAMBLA and sex with children. The editor of The Guide – Ed Hougen – stated in an interview with Lambda Report that, “I believe they [NAMBLA] are generally interested in the right of young people to be sexual…I am glad there is a group like NAMBLA that is willing to be courageous….” The Sentinel was more blunt: “NAMBLA’s position on sex is not unreasonable, just unpopular…when a 14 year old gay boy approaches a man for sex, it’s because he wants sex with a man.” (19)
Then there is the matter of NAMBLA’s membership status in the International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA), recognized at one time by the United Nations as the official “Non-Government Organization (NGO)” representing the gay community worldwide. When NAMBLA’s ILGA membership became public, a whirlwind of international controversy erupted that some gay leaders viewed as harmful to the gay movement’s image and goals. As a result, some gay leaders urged the expulsion of NAMBLA for purely image purposes.
However, the media failed to report that ILGA itself had hosted workshops on pedophilia and passed resolutions in 1985, 1988, and 1990 to abolish age of consent laws, claiming that “same sex age of consent laws often operate to oppress and not to protect” and supported “the right of every individual, regardless of age, to explore and develop her or his sexuality.” (20)
Eventually, reacting to congressional legislation threatening the reduction of $119 million in financial support, the United Nations kicked out ILGA in 1995 for refusing to sever ties with a half dozen member groups that advocated or promoted pedophilia. Revealingly, even though ILGA did expel NAMBLA – many say it was for show — it could not muster enough support among its membership to expel other more powerful – and more discreet – pro-pedophile organizations from Germany and other countries. It is extremely revealing that the majority of the world’s leading homosexual coalition, the ILGA, decided they would rather be excluded from UN deliberations than vote out groups that advocate sex with children.
Aside from support for NAMBLA by the mainstream gay community, there is a wealth of evidence that homosexuals are the prime force behind the escalating child molestation epidemic. Indeed, over the last 15 years the homosexual community and its academic allies have published a large quantity of articles that claim sex with children is not only not harmful but, as stated in one homosexual journal, “constitute an aspect of gay and lesbian life.” (21) Such articles have appeared in pro-homosexual academic journals such as The Journal of Homosexuality, The Journal of Sex Research, Archives of Sexual Behavior, and The International Journal of Medicine and Law. The editorial board of the leading pedophile academic journal, Paidika, is dominated by prominent homosexual scholars such as San Francisco State University professor John DeCecco, who happens to edit the Journal of Homosexuality.
Indeed, the Journal of Homosexuality is the premier academic journal of the mainstream homosexual world and yet it published a special double issue entitled, Male Intergenerational Intimacy, containing dozens of articles portraying sex between men and minor boys as “loving” relationships. One article states that parents should view the pedophile who loves their son “not as a rival or competitor, not as a theft of their property, but as a partner in the boy’s upbringing, someone to be welcomed into their home…”
Similarly, mainstream gay publications make no effort to hide its pro-pedophilia views. For example, BLK, a leading black homosexual publication, defended pedophilia with an article entitled, Must Men who Love Boys Be Guilty of Sexual Misconduct? San Francisco’s leading homosexual newspaper, The Sentinel, bluntly editorialized that, “The love between man and boys is at the foundation of homosexuality.” (22)
In 1995, the homosexual magazine Guide, stated, “We can be proud that the gay movement has been home to the few voices who have had the courage to say out loud that children are naturally sexual, that they deserve the right to sexual expression with whoever they choose…. we must listen to our prophets. Instead of fearing being labeled pedophiles, we must proudly proclaim that sex is good, including children’s sexuality…We must do it for the children’s sake.” That’s right, the Guide is saying that gays must molest children for their own sake!
While the mainstream media has apparently refused to engage in any kind of investigative expose of the gay movement, it is not difficult to find support for child sex among key homosexual leaders if one searches their publications and literature. For example, the founder of the infamous homosexual group, ACT-UP, Larry Kramer, wrote in his book, Report form the Holocaust: The Making of an AIDS Activist, “In those instances where children do have sex with their homosexual elders, be they teachers or anyone else, I submit that often, very often, the child desires the activity, and perhaps even solicits it.” In a letter to the editor of a gay newspaper, Andy Humm, a key leader of one of America’s largest gay youth groups, Advocates for Youth, said, “no one should be denied basic civil rights because of his or her orientation, whether the person be homosexual, heterosexual, transsexual, transvestite, pedophile, sadist, masochist, asexual, whatever one can imagine… They are in themselves natural variations.”
A 1995 content analysis by Dr. Judith Reisman of the Institute for Media Education, focusing on advertisements in the nation’s most influential homosexual newspaper, The Advocate, reveals that 63% of the personal ads sought or offered prostitution; many of them openly soliciting boys. The Advocate also advertises a “penetrable boy doll – available in 3 provocative positions.” Reisman found that the number of erotic boy images per issue of The Advocate averaged 26.7. (23) Some homosexual publications, such as the southern Californian newspaper Update, are brazen enough to have ads asking for donations for the legal costs of homosexuals arrested for child molestation.
Indeed, NAMBLA and other pro-pedophile literature can be found wherever homosexuals congregate — homosexual bookstores, bathhouses, festivals, gay bars, etc. When Americans for Truth About Homosexuality leader Peter LaBarbera asked one of Boston’s leading gay book stores – Glad Day Bookshop — to quit selling pedophile literature, the Manager replied that “our policy is to sell everything that’s available to the [gay] community.”
The most popular gay fiction books on the market today are “rich with idyllic accounts of ‘intergenerational relationships,’” according to writer Philip Guichard in an Village Voice article. Doubleday published a book in 1998, The Gay Canon: Great Books Every Gay Man Should Read, which recommends numerous works that portray sex with boys in a positive manner. The Border bookstore chain sells A History of Gay Literature: The Male Tradition, which includes a chapter devoted to the history of pro-pedophile literature as an undisputable part of homosexual literature history.
The Gay Men’s Press publishes a bestsellers list on which appear Dares to Speak: History and Contemporary Perspectives on Boy-Love, Some Boys, and For a Lost Soldier; all books that can only be described as pro-pedophile. The authoritative Encyclopedia of Homosexuality states that, “the fact that until recently man/boy love relationships were accepted as a part, and indeed were a major part, of male homosexuality.” (24) The leading dictionary of the homosexual culture, The Queen’s Vernacular, lists 254 of its 12,000 words as having to do with sex with boys.
One of the nation’s largest publishers of homosexual literature and books, Alyson Publications, also publishes pro-pedophile books such as The Age Taboo and Gay Sex: A Manual for Men Who Love Men. The latter contains detailed instructions for homosexuals on how to avoid discovery and arrest when having sex with boys: “Avoid situations where a number of men are having sex with the same boy, or group of boys, over a period of time.” Unknown to most people, Alyson Publications is also probably America’s largest provider of pro-gay literature and reading material to public schools, a market that is growing at a tremendous pace. The infamous Heather has Two Mommies was an Alyson Publications book.
Even the alleged birthplace of the modern day homosexual movement, the Stonewall Bar in New York City, was notorious as a place where older homosexuals arranged to meet young boys for sex.
“Mainstream” homosexual conferences now commonly feature speeches about “intergenerational sex,” as it’s now called. For example, at one the nation’s largest homosexual gatherings, the annual National Gay Lesbian Task Force convention, featured a workshop at its 2001 confab titled, “Your Eyes Say Yes But the Law Says No,” which included a speech by a S&M activist about laws affecting ‘‘intergenerational sex.” The convention also featured another workshop titled “Drag 101: How to Turn Kids in Make-up into Kings and Queens.”
Pick up any gay newspaper or gay travel publication and one find ads for sex tours to Burma, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and other countries infamous for boy prostitution. Published exposes on such tours by former homosexuals reveal that thousands of American gay men are patronizing boy prostitutes around the world. The most popular travel guide for homosexuals, Spartacus Gay Guides, is replete with information about where to find boys for sex and, as a friendly warning, lists penalties in various countries for sodomy with boys if caught.
The government of Sri Lanka announced that more than 10,000 boy prostitutes work its beaches as a result of the high demand created by affluent Western homosexuals. But the dirty little secret of the American homosexual community is the thousands of boy prostitutes that service them within our borders. A book exposing the boy prostitution world, For Money or Love, Boy Prostitution in America, reveals that “perhaps half of the million runaway boys in the country (ages 10 to 16) are peddling their bodies to ‘chicken hawks’-older men who lust for ‘chicken’ (boys).” (25)
Homosexual internet sites aren’t any different. A quick search using the words “gay” and “boys” easily locates thousands of homosexual sites that promote sex with young boys and/or contain child pornography. Indeed, when the state of Virginia passed a law in 2001 that restricted internet activity considered harmful to children such as chat rooms used by pedophiles to find victims, it was the mainstream homosexual groups who filed suit to block it. Similarly, when a pedophile was convicted in Iowa for showing pornographic videos to five minor boys in his apartment, the conviction was appealed all the way to the State Supreme Court which upheld the ruling, sparking widespread protests from homosexual activists.
The Holy Grail of the pedophile movement is the lowering or elimination of all age of consent laws but the main warriors in this political and legal battle are “mainstream” homosexual groups. Robert Knight and Frank York of the Family Research Council have thoroughly documented this in a report, Homosexual Activists Work to Lower the Age of Sexual Consent. As far back as 1972, the National Coalition of Gay Organizations adopted a gay rights platform that included a demand to “repeal all laws governing the age of sexual consent.” (26)
It is homosexual activists within the United Nations who are lobbying to give “sexual rights” to underage children. In England, the campaign is being led by Outrage! and Stonewall, both homosexual organizations. The Dutch homosexual group, Association for the Integration of Homosexuality, has succeeded in lowering the age of legal sex to 12 in Holland. Assisting them was another homosexual group, the COC, which stated, “The liberation of pedophilia must be viewed as a gay issue….[and that] ages of consent should therefore be abolished….by acknowledging the affinity between homosexuality and pedophilia, the COC has quite possible made it easier for homosexual adults to become more sensitive to the erotic desires of younger members of their sex, thereby broadening gay identity.”
In Canada, the effort is led by homosexual activist and NAMBLA defender Gerald Hannon.
In America, aside from NAMBLA, the effort is supported by most of the major homosexual organizations such as the National Gay Task Force. Indeed, the annual homosexual “March on Washington” invariably releases a “statement of demands” which includes abolishing age of consent laws. Homosexuals in Hawaii have already successfully lowered the age of consent there to 14. To be frank, it is difficult to find an advocate of lowering the age of consent laws in the United States or elsewhere who is not a homosexual activist.
What then does the academic literature say about the relationship between homosexuality and child molestation? Quite a bit, actually. Scientific studies of homosexuals confirm a strong pedophilic predisposition.
Family Research Institute founder and psychologist Paul Cameron reviewed over 19 different academic reports and peer reviewed studies in an 1985 Psychological Reports article and found rather conclusively that homosexuals account for between 25% and 40% of all child molestations. Sex researchers Freund, Heasman, Racansky, and Glancy, for example, in an 1984 Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy article, put the number at 36%. Erickson, Walbek, Sely, in an 1988 Archives of Sexual Behavior article, places it at 28%. (27)
However, it should be noted that homosexuals account for only 2% of the population which statistically means that a child molester is 10-20 times more likely to be homosexual than heterosexual. In other words, heterosexual molestations proportionally are a fraction compared to homosexual molestations. More recent studies confirm this statistic. In 2000, the Archives of Sexual Behavior published an article by seven sex researchers concluding that ‘‘around 25-40% of men attracted to children prefer boys…thus the rate of homosexual attraction is 6-20 times higher among pedophiles.’” (28)
Sexual violence expert and professor of psychiatry Eugene Abel concluded in a 1987 study published by the Journal of Interpersonal Violence, that homosexuals “Sexually molest young boys with an incidence that is occurring from five times greater than the molestation of girls.” (29)
In a 1992 study published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy, sex researchers K. Freud and R. I. Watson found that homosexual males are three times more likely than straight men to engage in pedophilia and that the average pedophile victimizes between 20 and 150 boys before being arrested. (30)
Other data has come to the fore confirming that sex with young boys is a way of life for many homosexuals. In 1993 The United States Army, Office of Judge Advocate, issued a study that analyzed 102 court martial convictions having to do with soldiers involved in homosexual acts over a four-year period. The study found that in 47% of the cases, homosexual men victimized a youth.
A content analysis of molestation stories by the Family Research Institute involving five major newspapers found around 40% involved homosexuals – and this number is low due to the fact that many reporters will not report if a child molester is homosexual even if he knows that to be the case.
A study by sex researchers Alan Bell and Martin Weinberg found that 25% of white gay men have had sex with boys 16 years and younger. The Family Research Institute conducted a similar study and found that “11 times more gays than exclusively heterosexual men reported sex with a man while they were under the age of 13.” A study by homosexual activists and researchers Jay and Young revealed that 73% of homosexuals surveyed had sex with boys 16 to 19 years of age or younger. (31)
In a study on male rape published by the American Journal of Psychiatry, it was found that 6% of rape victims reported to a Philadelphia rape crisis center were boys under 16 years old. And women are not raping them.
This type of behavior, however, is considered normal in psychiatric circles due to the influence of homosexual psychiatrists within the American Psychiatric Association. It is the homosexual caucus within that body that pushed to rewrite the diagnostic criteria for pedophilia. The new definition defines sex with children as a psychological disorder only if it causes “clinically significant distress” for the molester! Under that definition, most molesters are perfectly normal people!
The American Psychological Association appears to have similar sympathies when they published a sloppy and error filled article in their Psychological Bulletin in July, 1998, that argued there isn’t any research documented that child abuse is harmful to children and that “A willing encounter with positive reactions would be labeled simply adult-child sex” instead of using terms such as child abuse and victim. There was no outcry from the homosexual community. Indeed, they either remained silent or publicly defended the article. One of the nation’s most prominent homosexual journalists, Andrew Sullivan, attacked critics of the study in the New York Times. In the National Journal, gay journalist Jonathan Rauch strongly defended the study and argued that child molestation should be called “adult-adolescent sex.”
It is not a coincidence that an epidemic in male child molestation is occurring simultaneously with the rise of an aggressive homosexual subculture. Due to the AIDS virus, molestation is often a death sentence. In a study by the American Medical Association, 50% of male AIDS victims reported having sex with an adult male by the age of 16 and 20% of male AIDS victims had sex with an adult male by age 10! The Center for Disease Control reports that by 1991, 7,166 boys were dying of AIDS and 84% of them were infected by adult men. That statistic is much higher today yet there is no outcry from the health profession, no protests from the children’s rights groups and silence from our educators.
Indeed, the response instead has been an escalating effort by the homosexual community to compromise every major youth group possible, not to mention the inundation of our public schools with pro-homosexual curriculum, counseling, and social activities. The YMCA, Girl Scouts, and the Big Brothers, despite also being plagued by molestation incidents, have all capitulated to homosexual pressure campaigns. Indeed, Girl Scout leaders writing in the 1997 book, On My Honor: Lesbians Reflect on their Scouting Experience, reveal that the Girl Scouts are inundated with lesbians – a third of its professional staff is lesbian – and they have even initiated a lesbian mentoring program! The Boy Scouts now stand alone among America’s major youth groups in resisting the homosexual agenda – and that explains why they are under such ferocious legal, legislative, and cultural attack.
Moreover, the natural bias of a mostly liberal media is to omit any mention of a person’s homosexuality when covering molestation stores. This is reinforced by pressure from homosexuals groups. The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) disseminated a “media guide” to reporters nationwide in which they urge: “A criminal’s…. sexual orientation is not always obvious (or relevant) based simply on the circumstances of a crime…as a rule avoid labeling an activity or emotion as ‘homosexual’ unless you would call the same activity ‘heterosexual’ or ‘straight’ if engaged in by someone of another sexual orientation.”
The homosexual community knows that the capture of all major youth groups is absolutely necessary to the expansion of its movement. They know what most social scientists and sex researchers know but won’t talk about: molested children are likely to become homosexual. After all, one of the most common characteristics of homosexual molesters is the fact they were molested themselves during boyhood.
It is high time that America’s elected officials, health authorities, education leaders, and law enforcement officials act to not only tell the harsh truth – the homosexual community has targeted America’s youth – but act now to counter this horrible trend. Failure to do so will have disastrous consequences for both our culture and for the health of our children.
