Homosexuality and Child Sexual Abuse

August 18, 2007

An article that should greatly alarm us all from Timothy J. Dailey Ph.D.

“Scandals involving the sexual abuse of under-age boys by homosexual priests have rocked the Roman Catholic Church. At the same time, defenders of homosexuality argue that youth organizations such as the Boy Scouts should be forced to include homosexuals among their adult leaders. Similarly, the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), a homosexual activist organization that targets schools, has spearheaded the formation of “Gay-Straight Alliances” among students. GLSEN encourages homosexual teachers–even in the youngest grades–to be open about their sexuality, as a way of providing role models to “gay” students. In addition, laws or policies banning employment discrimination based on “sexual orientation” usually make no exception for those who work with children or youth.

Many parents have become concerned that children may be molested, encouraged to become sexually active, or even “recruited” into adopting a homosexual identity and lifestyle. Gay activists dismiss such concerns–in part, by strenuously insisting that there is no connection between homosexuality and the sexual abuse of children.

However, despite efforts by homosexual activists to distance the gay lifestyle from pedophilia, there remains a disturbing connection between the two. This is because, by definition, male homosexuals are sexually attracted to other males. While many homosexuals may not seek young sexual partners, the evidence indicates that disproportionate numbers of gay men seek adolescent males or boys as sexual partners. In this paper we will consider the following evidence linking homosexuality to pedophilia:

·  Pedophiles are invariably males: Almost all sex crimes against children are committed by men.

·  Significant numbers of victims are males: Up to one-third of all sex crimes against children are committed against boys (as opposed to girls).

·  The 10 percent fallacy: Studies indicate that, contrary to the inaccurate but widely accepted claims of sex researcher Alfred Kinsey, homosexuals comprise between 1 to 3 percent of the population.

·  Homosexuals are overrepresented in child sex offenses: Individuals from the 1 to 3 percent of the population that is sexually attracted to the same sex are committing up to one-third of the sex crimes against children.

·  Some homosexual activists defend the historic connection between homosexuality and pedophilia: Such activists consider the defense of “boy-lovers” to be a legitimate gay rights issue.

·  Pedophile themes abound in homosexual literary culture: Gay fiction as well as serious academic treatises promote “intergenerational intimacy.”

Study: 1 in 25 online youths asked for sexual photos while on ‘Net

July 21, 2007

It is a frightening reality that in today’s technologically advanced world our children can fall prey to predators while sitting in the comfort of their homes playing on the Internet. 

It is imperative that parents are aware of what their children are doing online and who they are talking to.  If you do not have time to monitor your children’s use of the Internet then I would suggest a tool such as bsafeonline.  You can find out more about this product by clicking here.

“Four percent of American youths online have been asked to send a sexually explicit photo of themselves over the Internet, researchers say in a new study.Of the 65 youths in the study who reported receiving a request, only one actually complied. But researchers say that’s still a troubling number: With millions of youths online, that projects to potentially thousands across the country.“One of the things we really need to start doing is talk to kids more directly and informing them of the criminal implications of this type of thing, encouraging them to be aware of these situations and to report them,” said Kimberly J. Mitchell, a research professor at the University of New Hampshire’s Crimes Against Children Research Center.”To read more click here.
