Canada’s Sloss retires



[By Jon Dougherty

Child molestation and pedophilia occur far more commonly among homosexuals
than among heterosexuals on a per capita basis, according to a new study.

"Overwhelming evidence supports the belief that homosexuality is a sexual
deviancy often accompanied by disorders that have dire consequences for our
culture," wrote Steve Baldwin in, "Child Molestation and the Homosexual
Movement," soon to be published by the Regent University Law Review  after
Stanford Law Review backed out.

Baldwin is the executive director of the Council for National Policy in
Washington, D.C.

"It is difficult to convey the dark side of the homosexual culture without
appearing harsh," wrote Baldwin. "However, it is time to acknowledge that
homosexual behavior threatens the foundation of Western civilization  the
nuclear family."

Though the homosexual community and much of the media scoff at such
accusations, Baldwin  who chaired the California Assembly's Education
committee, where he fought against support for the homosexual agenda in the
state's public schools  says in his report that homosexual activists'
"efforts to target children both for their own sexual pleasure and to
enlarge the homosexual movement" constitute an "unmistakable" attack on "the
family unit."

Baldwin's research is substantiated in a recently completed body of work
written by Dr. Judith Reisman <> , president of
the Institute for Media Education, former member of the Meese pornography
commission and author of numerous authoritative books debunking sexual
myths, including "Kinsey, Crimes & Consequences."

In her thesis  also written for the Regent University Law Review  Reisman
cited psychologist Eugene Abel, whose research found that homosexuals
"sexually molest young boys with an incidence that is occurring from five
times greater than the molestation of girls. "

Abel also found that non-incarcerated "child molesters admitted from 23.4 to
281.7 acts per offender  whose targets were males."

"The rate of homosexual versus heterosexual child sexual abuse is
staggering," Reisman wrote. She said "Abels data of 150.2 boys abused per
male homosexual offender finds no equal (yet) in heterosexual violations of
19.8 girls."

Jay Heavener, spokesman for PFLAG  Parents, Families and Friends of
Lesbians and Gays, <>  counters that federal crime data
refute claims that homosexuals molest children at higher rates than

"According to data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), this
claim is false," he told WND by e-mail. "The gay and lesbian community calls
into question any dubious research which flies in the face of our own

And Gary Schoener, a clinical psychologist who has been diagnosing and
treating clergy abuse for 28 years, told, "There are far more
heterosexual cases than homosexual."

In terms of sheer numbers, that may be true. But in terms of numbers of
children abused per offender, homosexuals abuse with far greater frequency;
and boys, research shows, are the much-preferred target.

Baldwin says evidence he examined disproves the assertion that child
molestation is more prevalent among heterosexuals. Both he and Reisman found
that media coverage of adult homosexual abuse of minors is also slanted.

"The National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) recently
boasted that although homosexuals are less than two percent of the
population, three-fourths of the people who decide the content of the front
page of the New York Times are homosexual," Reisman wrote.

That one fact is especially noteworthy, experts point out, given the recent
child sex scandals taking place within the American Catholic church.

A survey by WorldNetDaily of recent news reports found that rarely did the
media describe priestly sexual abuse as "homosexual" or "gay" activity
even though the worst incidents involved male-to-male contact, and a spate
of investigative reports has revealed that the Vatican is concerned about an
upsurge of homosexuals in seminary schools throughout the world.

Gay press promotes sex with children

Baldwin says his research not only "confirms that homosexuals molest
children at a rate vastly higher than heterosexuals," but it found that "the
mainstream homosexual culture" even "commonly promotes sex with children."

"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," Baldwin wrote.

During his research, he also found:

The Journal of Homosexuality recently published a special double-issue
entitled, "Male Intergenerational Intimacy," containing many articles
portraying sex between men and minor boys as loving relationships. One
article said parents should look upon 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."

In 1995 the homosexual magazine "Guide" said, "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" and "deserve the right to sexual
expression with whoever they choose. " The article went on to say: "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

Larry Kramer, the founder of ACT-UP, a noted homosexual activist group,
wrote in his book, "Report from 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 study of advertisements in the influential homosexual newspaper, The
Advocate, Reisman found ads for a "Penetrable Boy Doll  available in three
provocative positions. She also found that the number of erotic boy images
in each issue of The Advocate averaged 14.

Homosexual newspapers and travel publications advertise prominently for
countries where boy prostitution is heavy, such as Burma, the Philippines,
Sri Lanka and Thailand.
Homosexuality 'youth-oriented'?

"Research on the homosexual lifestyle confirms it is almost exclusively a
youth-oriented culture," Baldwin wrote. "Very few gays exhibit preference
for older men."

"Some admit to focus on teenage boys," he said, "some on prepubescent boys,
and many cross over between categories."

A 1988 study detailed in Baldwin's report found that most pedophiles even
consider themselves to be "gay." According to the study, "Archives of Sexual
Behavior," some 86 percent of pedophiles described themselves as homosexual
or bisexual. Also, the study found, the number of teenage male prostitutes
who identify as homosexuals has risen from 10 percent to 60 percent in the
past 15 years.

When asked what he thought about critics who attempt to debunk his research,
Baldwin said the results speak for themselves.

"For them to say this theory is false is to call many of the homosexual
movement's leaders liars," he said. "Most of my evidence comes right from
the gay community."

"I managed to find enough evidence that my thesis  child molestation is an
integral part of the homosexual movement  is a valid thesis," Baldwin told

Other experts have also found a distinct pattern between child sex abusers
and the incidence of homosexuality.

"How long can psychologists be in denial about the significance of the dark
side, and ignore what it implies about the homosexual condition? And there's
a matter of even greater concern. How long will psychologists eagerly throw
open the door to gay life for every sexually confused teenager?" writes
Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D, <>  on behalf
of NARTH  the National Association for Research and Therapy of
Homosexuality  a group that says it exists to "provide psychological
understanding of the cause, treatment and behavior patterns associated with
homosexuality, within the boundaries of a civil public dialogue."

The North American Man-Boy Love Association, or NAMBLA, is "a group that
openly promotes sex with minor boys and claims that boy-lovers respond to
the needs of the boys they love," Baldwin said in his report.

The group is often endorsed by "many of the homosexual movement's most
prominent leaders," he said.

Advocacy moving to schools

Promotion of the "gay and lesbian lifestyle" is increasing in the nation's
public schools.

A WND survey of homosexual-oriented websites found that almost every group
has some sort of program to "educate" teachers, school administrators and
other school employees about the homosexual lifestyle:

GLSEN  the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network  bills itself as
"the largest national network of parents, students, educators and others"
specifically formed to end "discrimination based on sexual orientation and
gender identity/expression in K-12 schools. Two recent press released
boasted of the Broward County (Fla.) school board approving GLSEN-sponsored
"training for teachers."

A student activist working with GLSEN officials has managed to "give voice"
recently to "gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered students" at
California schools;

PFLAG has created a national campaign called, "From Our House to the
Schoolhouse," distributing to school officials  among other materials  a
booklet entitled, "Just the Facts About Sexual Orientation and Youth: A
Primer For Principals, Educators, & School Personnel.

Though most school-related programs are sold to administrators and parents
as programs designed simply to end persecution of homosexuals and lesbians,
none disclose what Baldwin says is compelling evidence that homosexuality is
harmful to children.

"What  does the academic literature say about the relationship between
homosexuality and child molestation? Quite a bit, actually," he wrote,
quoting data compiled by the Family Research Institute: "Scientific studies
confirm a strong pedophilic predisposition among homosexuals."

The institute, after reviewing more than 19 studies and peer-reviewed
reports in a 1985 "Psychological Reports" article, found that homosexuals
account for between 25 and 40 percent of all child molestation.

"But this number is low," Baldwin says, "due to the fact that many reporters
will not report if a child molester is a homosexual, even if he knows that
to be the case."
