CHILD MOLESTATION & THE GAY AGENDA - PART 1
With all the discussion recently about child molestation; it was only a matter of time before someone blamed the problem on the heterosexual community. This has been done in some of the discussions.
The shocking truth is revealed in the Regent University Law Review - Spring 2002. Get ready for a thoroughly politically incorrect, no-spin-zone, dose of REALITY.
Child Molestation and the Homosexual Movement
Steve Baldwin *
Lately, the gay movement seems to be making large gains in its war on 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 advocates wildest imaginations.
And yet the destructive impact homosexuality has upon Western Civilization is rarely discussed by columnists, reporters, religious leaders, politicians or by anyone else for that matter. Even some conservative publications choose to ignore the issue and instead have published articles arguing for greater tolerance of the gay lifestyle.
Indeed, on the homosexual issue, conservatives seem divided between a "live and let live" attitude and one that concludes that the homosexual agenda will have to be curtailed if the Judeo-Christian culture is to survive. However, overwhelming evidence supports the belief 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 is ignored by the media as well as the leadership of the psychological, psychiatric, and medical professions.
It is difficult to convey the dark side of the homosexual culture without appearing harsh. However, it is time to acknowledge that homosexual behavior threatens the foundation of Western civilization ─ the nuclear family. An unmistakable manifestation of the attack on the family unit is the homosexual communitys efforts to target children both for their own sexual pleasure and to enlarge the homosexual movement. The homosexual community and its allies in the media scoff at this argument. They insist it is merely a tactic to demonize the homosexual movement. After all, they argue, heterosexual molestation is a far more serious problem.
Unfortunately, the truth is stranger than fiction. Research confirms that homosexuals molest children at a rate vastly higher than heterosexuals, and the mainstream homosexual culture commonly promotes sex with children.  Homosexual leaders repeatedly argue for the freedom to engage in consensual sex with children, and blind surveys reveal a shockingly high number of homosexuals admit to sexual contact with minors.  Indeed, the homosexual community is driving the worldwide campaign to lower the legal age of consent.
This trend comes at the expense of our childrens safety. The incident in involving group homes operated by the Gay and Lesbian Adolescent Social Services (GLASS) exemplifies this danger. GLASS receives taxpayer monies to take in troubled youth referred to them by the social service departments of various southern counties in . 
GLASSs 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 they target "youth who are confused about their sexual identities."  The website links to a myriad of gay sites targeting the youth, including one promoting a book that promotes sex with children.  GLASSs founder and former executive director,
Teresa DeCrescenzo, edited a book that helps youth discover their homosexuality. 
It came as no surprise that the California Department of Social Services found "on numerous occasions beginning at least as early as 1994, 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."  The Department of Social Services found that DeCrescenzo, aware of the allegations of molestation, determined staff conduct not to be inappropriate.  Apparently, DeCrescenzo believes 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 to shut down the whole GLASS group home operation. Remarkably, the state of , allowing GLASS to continue operation, removed a few individuals and placed GLASS on probation.  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, "it appears authorities never fully investigated those reports."  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.  After all, that would be hateful. If such a group home were operated by heterosexuals, the facilities would be shut down, any existing licenses revoked, and numerous criminal charges filed.
Homosexuals are targeting not just youth group homes, but all groups that work with youth. When a 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.  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 have spun the Scout molestation epidemic as a heterosexual problem. Examination of many of the higher profile cases, however, reveals that Scout molesters are attracted exclusively to boys and many lead mainstream gay lifestyles. John Hemstreet is a typical example. Hemstreet is a convicted child molester, former Boy Scout leader, and currently the President of the chapter of Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG). PFLAG is one of the groups leading the nationwide attack on the Boy Scouts of America. 
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 and scouters and in its membership. This will permit scouts to be exposed to a variety of life styles and will permit more of those individuals who genuinely wish to serve boys to do so." 
Using twisted logic, pro-gay academics argue 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" are successfully bamboozling the public and the media into believing that a mans exclusive focus on young males should not be defined as homosexuality! But if an exclusive attraction of a male to other males of any age is not homosexuality, what is?
On one hand, homosexuals publicly claim that the molestation of boys is not part of the homosexual lifestyle. On the other, they are quietly establishing the legal parameters exempting the molestation of boys from prosecution on anti-discrimination grounds. For example, in a forty-two year-old man was arrested for molesting a sixteen year-old boy but was not charged by the district attorney. The reason given was that 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 time is coming sooner than expected.
Research on the homosexual lifestyle confirms 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. 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.  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 fifteen 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.  Publicly, the mainstream gay organizations distance themselves from NAMBLA. 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 that one of its goals is "cooperating with the lesbian, gay, and other movements for sexual liberation."  NAMBLA even "provide[s] financial and other assistance to GLB [Gay, lesbian, bi-sexual] youth organizations . . . ."  Indeed, some NAMBLA chapters meet at mainstream gay centers such as s Gay and . NAMBLAs meetings and conferences always feature mainstream gay leaders and speakers. For example, Don Kilhefner, of the , 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 (www.qrd.org), links every gay group in the country including NAMBLA and other homosexual groups that focus on youth. NAMBLA marches in gay pride parades with the consent of the gay leadership. Many of the homosexual movements most prominent leaders endorse NAMBLA and its goals. Gay authors and leaders such as 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 either NAMBLA or man-boy relationships.  Harry Hay, whom many consider the founder of the American homosexual movement, invited NAMBLA members to march with him in the 1993 "March on " gay rights parade. He also marched in the 1986 gay parade wearing a shirt emblazoned with the words "NAMBLA walks with me." 
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 also 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, "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 San Francisco Sentinel was more blunt: "NAMBLAs position on sex is not unreasonable, just unpopular. [W]hen a 14 year old gay boy approaches a man for sex, its because he wants sex with a man." 
There is also the matter of NAMBLAs 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 NAMBLAs ILGA membership became public, a whirlwind of international controversy erupted. Some gay leaders viewed this attention as harmful to the gay movements image and goals and urged the expulsion of NAMBLA for purely political 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." 
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 discreet pro-pedophile organizations from and other countries. It is extremely revealing that the majority of members of the worlds 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 fifteen years the homosexual community and its academic allies have published a large quantity of articles that claim sex with children is not harmful to children but, as stated in one homosexual journal, "constitute an aspect of gay and lesbian life."  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 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 boys upbringing, someone to be welcomed into their home." 
Similarly, mainstream gay publications makeno effortto hide their pro-pedophilia views. For example, BLK, a leading blackhomosexual publication, defended pedophilia with an article entitled, "Must Men Who Love Boys Be Guilty of Sexual Misconduct?"  s leading homosexual newspaper, The Sentinel, bluntlyeditorialized, "The love between man and boys is at the foundation of homosexuality." 
The American Psychological Association appears to have similar sympathies when it published a sloppy and error-filled article in its Psychological Bulletin in July 1998, arguing that there is no research documenting that sexual 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 nations 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." 
The epidemic in male child molestation occurring simultaneously with the rise of an aggressive homosexual subculture is not coincidental. Due to the AIDS virus, molestation is often a death sentence. Further, the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that 50% of male AIDS victims reported having sex with an adult male by the age of 16, and 20% had sex with an adult male by the age of 10. 
The Center of Disease Control (CDC) recently reported that as of the year 2000, there are now 31,293 AIDS cases in the 13-24-age category.  The HIV/AIDs Surveillance Reports maintained by the CDC demonstrate that for the last few years around half of the age group 13-24 HIV victims were infected with the disease as a result of sex with adult men.  However, one must bear in mind that due to the incubation period of the HIV/AIDS disease, many of these boys and young men were infected as long as ten years previous to the reporting of their cases. This translates into roughly 15,000 boys that have been infected by adult men since the CDC started to compile this information. This is an epidemic no one seems to want to talk about.
Indeed, the response instead has been an escalating effort by the homosexual community to compromise every major youth group possible and to inundate our public schools with pro-homosexual curricula, 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 Americas major youth groups in resisting the homosexual agenda - and that explains why they are under such ferocious legal, legislative, and cultural attack.
Moreover, the liberal media omits any mention of a persons homosexuality in covering molestation stories. This is reinforced by pressure from homosexual groups. The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLADD) disseminated a "media guide" to reporters nationwide in which they urge:
A criminals . . . sexual orientation is not always obvious (or relevant) based simply on the circumstances of a crime . . . . [A]s 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 refuse to talk about: homosexually-molested children are likely to become homosexual. After all, one of the most common characteristics of homosexual molesters is the fact that they were molested themselves during boyhood. An article published by the American Medical Association reported that, "Abused adolescents, particularly those victimized by males, were up to 7 times more likely to self-identity as gay or bisexual than peers who had not been abused." 
It is high time that Americas elected officials, health authorities, education leaders, and law enforcement officials act to not only tell the harsh truth─the homosexual community has targeted Americas 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.

I'm surprised to see you lable that as "no spin zone." I got dizzy reading it.
And yet the destructive impact heterosexuality has upon Western Civilization is rarely discussed by columnists, reporters, religious leaders, politicians or by anyone else for that matter. Even some conservative publications choose to ignore the issue and instead have published articles arguing for greater tolerance of the straight lifestyle.
Indeed, on the heterosexual issue, conservatives seem divided between a "live and let live" attitude and one that concludes that the heterosexual agenda will have to be curtailed if the Judeo-Christian culture is to survive. However, overwhelming evidence supports the belief that heterosexuality is often accompanied by disorders that have dire consequences for our culture. A vast amount of data demonstrating the deviant nature of the straight lifestyle is ignored by the media as well as the leadership of the psychological, psychiatric, and medical professions.
What the Heck. Everyone is in so much agreement these days I thought I'd through a hot potato out. While this guy obviously is biased, (who isn't) his paper is well documented and in some ways....shocking.
Looking at the speed at which your responses came, I doubt you guys read the whole document. What do you think about the statistics and the quotes?
This is BULLSHIT! I am so sick of so called professionals writing so-called scientific papers based solely on their own biased beliefs and biased research.
The only people who molest children are PEDOPHILES. They are men, women, teenagers from all walks of life.
Molesting a child is DEVIANT; homosexuality is not. The bible was written eons ago before there was any knowledge about homosexuality. The majority of them ARE born that way. Watch the discovery channel. While there is not a gene - there are contributing factors pre-birth. So science IS proving that.
This was not a dose of reality. It was a dose of vomit. I would rather have been raised by a decent homosexual couple (man or woman) than with my father.
Complete Bullshit, I know people in the "mainstream gay community" and they would never advocated sex with children!
To my knowledge, NAMBLA is a fringe element of the Gay Community. To link them to all gays is pathetic. While I'm not a big supporter of the gay community, I also don't feel threatened by them either. Obviously, this guy does. The gays I have spoken to abhore pedophelia as much as the rest of us do.
As for his documentaton and references, all the studies done to support the Blacks as inferior to the whites also were well documented and referenced. That didn't make them true either.
To point fingers at the entire gay community for pedophiles would be like pointing fingers at the entire Christian community for the KKK and white supremacists.
Are you sure this study wasn't supported by the likes of Rev. Fred Phelps and his God Hates Fags group? If I suspected anyone of pedophelia, it would be him.
I believe the writer shows a clear connection between some prominent leadership within the gay community that clearly advocates child molestation. While I agree with you that a very large percentage of gays are born that way; the issue here isn't about gays....its about child molesters. Is it possible to be a child molester and be gay?
Your argument sounds a little like the JW's who say we don't have criminals in our church because criminals aren't TRUE Jehovah's Witnesses. If this connection was exposed on any other group....say the Catholics, would your response be any different?
I appreciate your point of view and it is something to think about.
I just read a reference in a magazine I got today and decided to look up the source. Whether or not we agree with this guy he definitely goes against correctness to relate studies, figures and quotes we might otherwise not get.
Personally, while I have gay friends and definitely am comfortable with them, I would never be comfortable around a known molester whether he was straight or gay. If this guy's findings are correct, and I'd love to find out if he's wrong, then a pereson may ask why the gay community doesn't speak out louder against those that would hi-jack their movement towards greater equality?
Should we not hold everyone to the same standard regardless of their sexuality? Of course, if someone could provide a publication within the gay community that condemns molesters and refuses to allow them advertising space etc. that would go a long way to discrerdit this guy.
I found the psychiatric definitions of child abuse especially repulsive and ignoring the rights of the child.
Just my .02
