“We Shall Sodomize Your Sons!” click here
Not only are male homosexuals disproportionately likely to molest young boys or male teen-agers, but as we will see there seems to be almost a fascination with “Man-Boy” love in the male homosexual community. Lesbians are far less likely to sexually molest a child, although in recent years there has been more evidence being reported of these types of molestations. However, since over 95% of all sexual molestations are done by men, we will mainly be concentrating on men and their obsession of sex with children.

Mark Swift, a homosexual icon, wrote in the Gay Community News about the homosexual agenda on February 15, 1987. Homosexual activist will say that this passage is a joke; however, when reading these statements as “jokes”, just think about how many of them have become true! The following excerpts are a reprint from the Congressional Record: “We shall sodomize your sons…We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms…in your youth groups (Boy Scouts?)…Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding (Project 10? Diversity & Multicultural training? AIDS Programs?)…They will come to crave and adore us (Gay, Straight Alliances or GSAs?)…All laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked (Sodomy Laws?). Instead, legislation shall be passed which engenders love between men (anti-discrimination, hate crimes, civil unions Laws?). Our writers and artists will make love between men fashionable (Will&Grace, In&Out or any other prime time sitcom?)…We shall raise vast, private armies…to defeat you ( Homophobia & Intolerance training?). Our only Gods are handsome young men (Pick up any “gay” magazine or newspaper!). All males who insist on remaining stupidly heterosexual will be tried in homosexual courts of justice and will become invisible men (Look at recent court rulings across America&World?). Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks.” (One day soon, our leaders?)

Judge J.T. Rees concluded that “the male homosexual naturally seeks the company of the male adolescent, or of the young male adult, in preference to the fully-grown man. [In 1947] 986 persons were convicted of homosexual and unnatural offences. Of those, 257 were indictable offences involving 402 male victims…The great majority [whom]… were under the age of 16, only 11% …were over 21. The problem of male homosexuality is in essence the problem of the corruption of youth by itself [i.e. by other boys] and by its elders [And thereby]… the creation…of new addicts ready to corrupt a still further generation of young men and boys in the future.” Source: Ress, J.

In “For Money or Love, Boy Prostitution in America,” which was published in 1976, libertarian Robin Lloyd quotes former Sen. Birch Bayh, D-Ind., stating that the growing traffic in boy prostitution is “a hitherto under discuss facet of the homosexual world,” says Lloyd, “Perhaps 500,000 runaway boys in this country (aged 10 to 16) are peddling their bodies to ‘chicken hawks’ – older men who lust for ‘chicken’ [boys].” “There are tightly run organizations…geared to provide wealthy clients with both pornography and boys. …[T]heir boys will entertain movie stars, prominent athletes, politicians and, in some cases, heads of state.” Lloyd observes that “boy prostitutes in Times Square outnumber female hookers 5 to 1.” Lloyd adds, saying of boy-abusers individually and in groups, “[The police raids] usually go unreported by the press. Both wire services, the AP and UPI, file the stories to newspapers, radio stations and television stations but always with the cautionary headline, ‘EDITORS (NOTE NATURE OF THE STORY). Editors do…and often elect not to (run the story).'”

Several studies reveal that while no more than 2% of the male adults are homosexual, approximately 35% of pedophiles are homosexual. The first study done out of Toronto reviewed two sizeable studies and calculated that 34% and 32% of the offenders against children were homosexual. In the cases personally handled by the doctors, homosexuals accounted for 36% of their 457 pedophiles. In the other study, a review of scientific and professional literature in 1985, the study concluded that homosexual acts were involved in 25% to 40% of the cases of child molestation. Source: K.

In 1983, a probability survey of sexual experiences of 4,340 adults in 5 U.S. cities found that about 3% of men and 7 percent of women reported sexual involvement with a man before the age of 13. By definition that means that 30% of these molestations were homosexual acts. Also, the survey reported on any sexual advances and any physical sexual contact by elementary and secondary teachers (4% of the teachers claimed to be bisexual or homosexual). 29% of the advances by elementary and 16% of the advances by secondary school teachers were homosexual. In addition, 25% reported actual sexual contact with an elementary school teacher were homosexual. In high school 8 (22%) of 37 contacts between teachers and pupil were homosexual. Of those reporting a homosexual teacher, 6% said that a teacher influenced them to try homosexuality and 13% of the men and 4% of the women said that the teacher made sexual advances toward them.

” Boys who are molested often find that telling others that someone took control of them is an extremely difficult thing to admit because it isn’t ‘manly’ to allow such things to happen. Conversely, in some situations, if a girl is molested, it is not as threatening for them to disclose. For example, in a case in southern California, a man was involved sexually with and photographed approximately 150 boys between the ages of 6 and 14 years…He was discovered only after he took pictures of some girls who told their parents afterward. Interviews conducted by police investigators with pedophiles themselves also reveal some startling information. A 52-year-old man told an investigator of 5,000 children he had molested in his lifetime; a 42-year-old Connecticut man told of more than 1,000 children he had molested; and a 62-year-old man, an oil executive with a $11,000-a-month trust fund, admitted to molesting a ‘boy a day’ for 30 years.” Source: Seth L.

The number of boys victimized is estimated to be around 3.2 million. The number of victims is derived from the fact that 3.8% of 3,132 adult subjects in this study were males, who reported childhood sexual contact with an adult, 93% of those with an adult male. Based on this study, one would multiply the U.S. adult male population by 3.8% and then by 93%, and arrive at 3.2 million. Of the sexual abuse of children, 35% were homosexual assaults (Experts agree that this number is probably higher because large numbers of adult males repress, or do not report, the painful experience of molestation).

A 1988 study revealed that 22% of their sampling reported sexual abuse.

Robert was born on Rikers Island, and his luck never got much better. By the time he was 13, he was a runaway living amid the peep shows and video arcades of Times Square. At age 19, he had lost 80 pounds and all his teeth and would die of AIDS by Christmas. The number of teenagers with HIV remains small. In New York City, only 41 cases have been diagnosed. But for the teenagers of Times Square – living at a crossroads of illegal drugs and $5 sex (tricks) – the odds grow worse each day. They gravitate toward one of the city’s tawdriest areas because they think they can make money there. Some advocates for children say almost half the 10,000 homeless teenagers on the streets of New York are homosexual, many of them working as prostitutes on the piers and the darkest recesses of Times Square. Social workers say the men who buy their favors, and sometimes carry infection home to their wives, are seeking progressively younger partners in the hope they will be “clean.” Many children leave home fleeing sexual abuse. John is one of these homeless teenagers. He lives in the Port Authority Bus Terminal – sleeping in a corner, eating fast food and hustling older men outside the lavatories on the second floor. “You don’t think about AIDS,” John said. “You think about money.” In a promiscuous population like these teenage runaways. AIDS spreads like wildfire, as it did in certain segments of the adult male homosexual population. “Once you get the virus seeded into a community with multiple partners, it’s likely to transmit very rapidly,” said Dr. Stephen C. Joseph, the New York City Health Commissioner. In New York City, 34 adolescents, age 13 to 19, have contracted the invariably fatal illness. more than 50% of them are dead. There are more than 2,000 AIDS cases in the city among people between the ages of 20 and 29, and the majority are thought to have been infected as adolescents. The overwhelming majority of teenagers and young adults with AIDS are males and most of those are homosexuals, exposed through anal intercourse. The risk to girls from lesbian sex is considered slight, but they can be exposed through the heterosexual sex that they sometimes seek to disguise their homosexuality (or with homosexual male friends). In conversations with about 2 dozens gay teenagers, none said the epidemic had stopped them from becoming sexually active. Students at a (gay) dance talked wistfully of the gay life style of the 1970’s. “I do envy that free-love period,” one said. In this grim nether world, smooth-faced youngsters prowl the piers near Gansevoort Street, past parked cars with out-of-state license plates, and sell themselves for $10. Nearby, in Dizzy Izzy’s doughnut shop at 14th Street and Ninth Avenue, a half-dozen transvestite prostitutes gather for a break. At a local gay teen club, hoping to prompt discussion, the institute showed a movie about AIDS at the after- school film club. The teenagers erupted in anger. “Are you saying this will happen to me?” one gay youngster shouted. “The answer is yes,” Ms. Hunter said in the suddenly quiet room. “If you don’t practice safe sex, there’s a good change you will die, You have to give up the street stuff. The street stuff will kill you.” Source: Suzanne Daley, “Runaways of 42nd. Street: AIDS begins its scourge,” The New York Times, May 30, 1988.

In a clinical study, Robert L. Johnson, M.D., found that “70% of those who had been molested (by a male or female) felt devastated immediately after the molestation incident had occurred.” Johnson also notes: “Low self-esteem and depression are the most important long-term effects experienced by sexually abused boys, along with a tendency to feel helpless and vulnerable. Some of these boys are almost compulsively drawn into situations where they are repeatedly victimized. Adult types of sexual dysfunction appear to be as common among former sexual abuse victims as they are in adult rape victims.” Source: Interview with Robert L. Johnson, M.D., conducted by Diane K.

In 1990, The Journal of Homosexuality produced a special double issue devoted to adult-child sex, which was entitled “Male Intergenerational Intimacy.” On page 133, one article said many pedophiles believe they are “born that way and cannot change.” Another writer said a man who counseled troubled teenage boys could achieve “miracles…not by preaching to them, but by sleeping with them.” On page 162, the loving pedophile can offer a “companionship, security, and protection” which neither peers nor parents can provide. On page 164, parents should look upon the pedophile who loves their son “not as a rival or competitor, not as a thief of their property, but as a partner in the boy’s upbringing, someone to be welcomed into their home…” On page 323, a British university professor writes: “Boys want sex with men, boys seduce adult men, the experience is very common and much enjoyed.” And finally on page 325, a professor of social science at the State University of New York said he looks forward to the day when Americans will “get over their hysteria about child abuse” and child pornography.

All agreed that the incident of a 11-year-old boy being abducted and raped (sodomized) by an HIV positive man was any parent’s worst nightmare. While parents are grappling with the 11-year-old’s kidnapping and his exposure to the AIDS virus, gay groups in the (New York) city expressed concern that the suspect’s right to confidentiality about his infection had been violated by the police. The complaint was against Troy A. Rivera, who after forcing the boy into his apartment, ordered the child to perform oral sex on him and that when the child refused. Rivera threw him on his bed and raped him. Rivera was charged with second-degree kidnapping and first-and second – degree sodomy. Prosecutors were still investigating whether to file additional charges of “relating to his knowingly exposing the child to the HIV virus.” A spokesman for the Federal Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, John Taylor, said that in cases of a one-time contact during anal intercourse between men “the risk of transmission ranges from 1 in 19 to 1 in 50.” After his arrest, the police revealed that Rivera had told them that he had AIDS. “How did the police learn he was HIV positive, and why did they release it?” asked William K. Dobbs, a lawyer and member of Act Up, a group that lobbies for AIDS patients’ rights. Capt. William K. Rowe of the Manhattan detective bureau said, “He (Rivera) told me he had a lot of sexual encounters with male teenagers. I inquired how old they were. He said 17 and above.” Rivera had two prior convictions, one of them was sodomy and robbery with injury. Neighbors also said that Rivera continually took young male children to his apartment who looked to be 14 and 15 years old. One neighbor said he called 4 times in the summer with his concerns about the boys and gave police Rivera’s name.

Author Tom Reeves, a self-admitted pederast who was part of the early “gay rights” movement, explains the role of pederasts in homosexualist activism: “Almost everyone of the early openly homosexual writers was a pederast. Pederasty was a constant theme of early gay literature, art, and pornography. The Stonewall riots were precipitated by an incident involving an underage drag queen, yet that detail was not viewed as significant. Curtis Price, a 14 year old, self-described “radical hustler,” formed the first gay liberation organization in Baltimore, Maryland. Many of the leaders of the early gay liberation and founders of the major gay groups in the U.S. were man-boy lovers. Other homosexualist-run “children-rights” organizations include the Rene Guyon Society, which was formed in 1962 “to make it possible for adults to provide sexual stimulation for virtually all children.” “Queer Nation and Act-up” were home to “both boys and men” who wanted “additional cultural activity beyond…their illegal relationships.” Reeves claimed in a 1979 speech that he personally had met “over 500 men” who “were struggling with their attraction to boys.” “Almost to a man,” said Reeves, “they are teachers and Boy Scout leaders and Boys Club leaders.” Source: Reeves, Tom, “Reviving and Redefining Pederasty,” In Parcel, Mark (Ed.), Varieties of Man/Boy Love, NY, Wallace Hamilton Press, 1992.
Pedophilia and its promotion is not limited to male homosexuals. Virginia Uribe, a lesbian teacher in Los Angeles, has been at the forefront of a movement to “affirm gay teenagers,” through school-based pro-homosexual “counseling”. Her own program, called Project 10 (named for the the myth that 10% of the US population is homosexual), included a book for young people called “One Teenager in Ten“. This “resource” for troubled teens features lurid pornographic stories, including a graphic lesbian sex scene between a 12 year-old girl and her 23 year-old dance teacher. The apparent goal is to activate children’s sexuality at increasingly younger ages. At a conference promoting Project 10 to public school teachers in Oregon, University of Washington sociologist Pepper Schwartz admits targeting pre-pubescent children for “affirmation,” saying, “At this point, getting the majority to say ‘gay’ is good’ at 9 or 10 years old is going to be difficult, but just because it is difficult doesn’t mean it’s not the right thing.” Source: Virginia Uribe, “Homosexuality, the Classroom and your Children,” 1992.
Gay advocates state that most child molesters are heterosexuals males. But this is a misleading statement. In proportion to their numbers (about 1 out of 36 men), homosexual males are more likely to engage in sex with minors: in fact, they appear to be 3 times more likely than straight men to engage in adult-child sexual relations. The average homosexual pedophile victimizes between 20 to 150 boys before being arrested. This is far more children than the average heterosexual pedophile. Source: K. Freud and R.I.

Another apologist for pederasty is Larry Kramer, founder of ACT-UP. In Report from the Holocaust: The Making of an AIDS Activist (1993), Kramer had this to say about adult/child sex: “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.”
Child molestation is not to be taken lightly.

In 1980 the largest Dutch gay organization (the COC) “adopted the position that 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 possibly made it easier for homosexual adults to become more sensitive to erotic desires of younger members of their sex, thereby broadening gay identity.” In 1990 COC achieved a significant victory: lowering of the age of consent for homosexual sex in Holland to 12 [ unless the parents object, in which case it goes up to 15].

The NAMBLA Bulletin reported that Harry Hay (credited with the founding of the modern day “gay rights” movement) was the featured speaker at NAMBLA’s annual membership conference, June 24-25, 1994. To quote the article, “[He] gave an inspiring talk about reclaiming for the 1990’s the spirit of homoerotic sharing and love from various ancient Greek traditions of pederasty. A remarkably balanced and sensitive account of the conference appeared in the August 23 Advocate from a writer who was invited to attend. Also in this publication was an article about membership of groups such as the International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA) being expelled from the United Nations Economic and Social Council in September of 1993 because of their pedophilia ties. Attempting to forestall their expulsion ILGA tried to separate itself from pederast groups but quickly learned that support for the “boy-lovers” was too deeply entrenched in the association. ILGA’s ouster of ten-year member NAMBLA and a couple of other high-profile groups caused European pederast member-organizations to step forward in protest.

Mark Welch is not exactly trilled that his brother, Jeff, is getting out of a Nashville prison. In fact, the California attorney has sent out a frantic press release warning Twin Cities residents that his brother, a convicted child molester, may visit relatives in the metro area. “He will abuse children again,” Welch said from Pleasanton on Friday. Jeff Welch could not be reached for comment Friday. A criminal court clerk in Ruther County, Tenn., said the man was imprisoned in Nashville after pleading guilty in 1987 to aggravated sexual battery on a 6-year-old girl. Jeff Welch, 34, was suspected of abusing three other minors. “As a teenager…I experimented with my brother, and three other young children in the neighborhood…Mark was the only one I ever ‘forced’ to do anything,” wrote Jeff Welch. Mark Welch, 33, said he was 13 when the abuse began on a Thursday in November 1973. Jeff Welch threw him on the bed and assaulted him, Mark Welch said. There was about 100 attacks between 1973 and 1974, and the abuse ended only when the boys’ parents separated, he said. Mark mostly kept silent about the abuse until his father’s death in 1990. He then read his brother’s court file and eventually decided to take action. “I believe that my brother will seek out situations so he can molest children,” he said. “I am causing a lot of discomfort in my family by publicizing this. But that’s better than the discomfort I would feel if (Jeff Welch) molested somebody again.” Source: Julio Ojeda-Zapata and Wayne Wangstad, “Lawyer Warns that brother might molest kids again,” St. Paul Pioneer Press, Minn., February 26, 1994.
“A growing number of children are molesting other children. These child-aged molesters are influenced by a variety of factors including ‘night visitors’ to their unmarried mother, sexually explicit TV and movies, and school sex education. The strongest influence, however, may be incest and/or being molested by another, usually older, child… These investigations point up the strong likelihood that children who become prematurely sexual will engage in homosexuality. Any school or advertising program that teaches kids about sex runs the risk of ‘stimulating’ youngsters into sexual activity.” Source: Dr. Paul Cameron, Family Research Report, March-April, 1994.
“The often stated claim by militant gays that they are statistically no more likely to engage in pederasty than heterosexuals has no empirical basis. A 1985 study of arrests in 12 U.S. jurisdictions showed, on average, about 40% of arrests for pederasty homosexuals. Another recent study, touted by gays as evidence to support their claim of being no more likely than heteros to engage in such behavior, actually proved the exact opposite. The study was done by a team of researchers from the University of Colorado who, according to the leader, Dr. Carole Jenny, set out to prove that homosexuals were not more likely to molest children…In any case, the researchers looked at 269 cases at a child-molestation clinic and found that 50 cases, or 18.5%, were male-on-male molestation. Since homosexuals make up probably less than 5% of the population (more like 2%), this would seem to indicate a disproportionate molestation rate. So the investigators engaged in what is known in the scientific community as ‘data torture.’ Without interviewing the molesters, the interviewers decided that most of those offenders who engaged in homosexual sex weren’t really homosexuals. Only one (1) of the 50 actually qualified as gay…The study was then touted as evidence that gays don’t molest children.” The beneficiaries of “sexual freedom” for children and teens are often predatory adult homosexuals. The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is on record that “gay teens should be supported in coming out,” but writer Paul Mulshine notes that “the guidance, and the sex, tends to come from adult gays who bring the teens out… A study published in the Journal of Pediatrics showed that of a sample of gay teenagers who had steady sexual partners, the mean age of the partners was 25 years.” Mulshine also cites a “1985 study of arrest in 12 U.S. jurisdictions [for child sex abuse, which] showed… on average, about 40% of arrests for pederastic homosexuals.” Source: Paul Mulshine, “Man-Boy Love” Heterodoxy, September 1994, p. 11.

A local elementary school teacher (Neil Shumate) was charged with molesting a number of his (male) students. The jury verdict was returned, finding Shumate guilty of molesting his students. During the trail, local newspapers reported in grim detail the testimony of about a dozen children, who clearly testified that Mr. Shumate had fondled their “privates” and had put his hands inside their clothing. Defense attorney claimed that Mr. Shumate was merely tucking in a loose shirt or something similar, and each child clearly responded that Mr. Shumate was not just tucking in a shirt or something similar. Before, during and after the trail, Mr. Shumate made every possible effort to make his case appear to be a miscarriage of justice. After his conviction, he scheduled a press conference where he claimed there was no testimony of molestation; his statements ignored hours of courtroom testimony. Mr. Shumate’s supports, included family members and some parents of his former students, aggressively maligned the district attorney and police assigned to the case. After the father of one of Shumate’s former students spoke out publicly in Shumate’s support, his son reluctantly revealed that he had, in fact, reported inappropriate touching by Mr. Shumate to his mother. The school district promptly sought better training for its teachers, both in responding to reports of child molestation and in dealing with child abuse victims. The jury convicted Shumate of intentionally sexually molesting several children in his classroom – based on the difficult standard of “beyond a reasonable doubt.” Based on the jury’s verdict, I believe Neil Shumate is not just a child molester but a pedophile. And some people simply have too much “invested” in their friendships and the people they trust to accept that their friend or teacher might be weak or emotionally disturbed. Source: Mark J.

Adolf Hitler’s close friendship with the family of composer Richard Wagner is well known. Only recently revealed is the accusation by Wagner family members “that Hitler sexually abused the young Wieland [Wagner’s grandson, now 75] during the ’20s.” these allegations came to light in a Time Magazine interview with American author and former diplomat to Germany, Frederic Spotts, whose research for the book “Bayreuth” (about the Wagnerian opera festival of the same name) included interviews with the Wagner family. “Spotts says that his original source was one of Wieland’s own children…Now a respected academic, Spotts says it was while he was researching ‘Bayreuth” that he interviewed his source – who, he insists, is totally reliable and has no reason to lie. ‘This family member told me Hitler sexually abused Wieland in the 1920s when the boy was a preadolescent’…Hitler who idolized Richard Wagner’s supernationalistic operas (as well as his anti-Semitism), had become a close friend of Wieland’s mother’s. Winifred Wagner gave him free run of the children’s’ nursery (where the alleged molestation took place). Source: Time Magazine, August 15, 1995, vol. 56.
It is impossible to determine the total number of male homosexual pedophiles, but they may constitute at least 10% of the adult male homosexual population. This is taken from the total number of victims and divide it by the mean number of victims per homosexual pedophile (150), which is 21,333. But this is not an accurate number, because it is based only on pedophiles who have been caught. The majority are probably never caught – perhaps in part because they molest fewer boys. If we lower the victimization rate to, say, 25 boys per pedophile, we arrive at the very disturbing number of 128,000, which is over 10% of the practicing male homosexual population. It is estimated that approximately 80% of pedophilic victims are boys who have been molested by adult males. Source: Thomas B. Schmidt, “The Price of Love,” Straight & Narrow? 1995; pp. 115 &205.
” Childhood sexual seductions are an obvious cause of homosexuality. When these seductions give pleasure and comfort, the same-sex sex can become addictive, especially when it overtakes someone caught up in a traumatic family situation. The sex – so quick and easy – can help relieve a person’s anxiety. Thus it becomes a kind of habit. Like any habit, smoking for instance, it is a habit that can be hard to kick. That’s the way it is with addictions that give great pleasure.” Source: Charles Socarides, M.D., “Homosexually, A Freedom Too Far,” 1995, p. 19.
Alyson Publications, the leading publisher of “gay” titles, markets books aimed at pre-schoolers, such as “Daddy’s Roommate,” “Heather Has Two Mommies,” along with “Gay Sex: A Maunual for Men Who Love Men.” The latter contains detailed instructions for pedophiles and pederasts on successfully avoiding discovery and arrest. “Avoid situations,” advises author Jack Hart in 1996, “were a number of men having sex with the same boy, or group of boys, over a period of time.”
In 1996, Psychiatrist Jeffery Satinover commented on the Journal of Homosexuality’s “Male Intergenerational Intimacy” article back in 1990. “This special issue reflects the substantial, influential, and growing segment of the homosexual community that neither hides nor condemns pedophilia. Rather they argue that pedophilia is an acceptable aspect of sexuality, especially of homosexuality. Indeed, the San Francisco Sentinel, a Bay Area gay-activist newspaper, published a piece arguing that pedophilia is central to male homosexual life.” Source: Satinover, Jeffrey (1996), Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth, Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books, p. 63.
Sexual abuse is an independent predictor of sexual risk-taking among young HIV-negative homosexual men, according to Canadian researchers who presented their findings at the XI International Conference on AIDS in Vancouver, BC. Among 287 HIV-negative gay men aged 18 to 30, risk takers were more likely to have unstable housing, less education, a higher score on depression measures, and were more likely to use cocaine, alcohol, cigarettes and nitrate inhalants. Risk takers were also more likely to have been paid for sex in the last year and to have experienced nonconsensual sex. Dr. Steffanie A. Strathdee at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver said “…independent predictors of sexual risk taking were more than ten drinks of alcohol per week…use of cocaine…and nonconsensual sex over age 12.” Dr. Strathdee believes that these findings “…indicate a significant association between sexual abuse and subsequent risk behaviors…(and) sexual abuse could be a marker of vulnerability rather than a predisposing factor.” Source: Reuters/JAMA – HIV/AIDS Information Center, “sexual abuse predicts HIV risk-taking behavior in young male homosexuals,” July 8, 1996, Vancouver, BC.
Bill Walsh taught in Gilmer County, Ga., until he was charged with molesting boys. But there was no indictment, so Walsh moved to Oconee County, where he worked as a substitute teacher. There, 3 boys accused him of touching them on the buttocks and crotch. But no one could prove it, and nobody reported it to the state, and Walsh moved on, to Social Circle Elementary School. It was his third school in two years, and it was the place where his teaching career ended.

Disciplinary actions and lawsuits over alleged “indifference” to pupils’ needs can be found from Florida to California. In one case, Florida’s Education Practices Commission first revoked the license of teacher Norman Bailey, accused of pressuring students for sex. Then the agency went after his principal. Raymond Rainone, saying he “failed to make reasonable effort to protect” students. In Michigan, the legislature banned secrecy agreements like one that silenced authorities in Flint from passing information about an alleged teacher-seducer who moved from there to Miami. Florida students said the practice continued, one student killed herself. In Kansas, a student’s $8 million lawsuit accuses administrators of “negligent failure to warm” about a teacher’s history of abuse. Ann Turnbow, the mother of an Arkansas student suing administrators for alleged “indifference” to a teacher-coach’s seduction, said: “If they had been doing their job this man wouldn’t have been able to do the things he did.” Meanwhile, efforts continue to close gaps in laws protecting students. California closed what a lawmaker called “an absurd loophole” by enacting a 1994 law permanently revoking credentials of teachers convicted of felony sex offenses or distributing drugs to minors. Previously, such teachers could have credentials restored a year after suspension. 4 had returned to the classroom this way in the proceeding four years. In New York, Donna Covello says she’s fighting to close loopholes. She pressed legislators for passage on several measures, including a “Position of Trust” bill. That bill would have made it a felony punishable by up to 15 years imprisonment for educators and others to sexually abuse children in their care. She blamed the teachers union – which maintains a political action committee that spent nearly $1 million last year on statehouse campaigns – for blocking the legislation in the just-ended session. Ms. Covello sees different complications by letting these teachers off the hook. “I don’t think many people understand. The damage of being sexually abused is horrible.” When she was 14, a school counselor began a two-year period of molesting her, she said. It was not until two decades later, after she attempted suicide and overcame anorexia, that she finally filed a complaint. That act of will three years ago led to another: directly confronting the counselor, by then a school dean. “I wore a body wire. My fear was he wasn’t going to talk,” she said. “But he did.” He was forced to resign.

State officials are trying to determine if convicted child molester, John Shallenberger, now living in Mexico, is violating court orders that prohibit him from having contact with children. Shallenberger, 82, graduated in 1935 from an exclusive private school outside Philadelphia. In the “Class Notes” section of the school’s alumni magazine, he writes that he is living in Mexico, “where he is serving as a Christian missionary. He is happy to accept any graduates who wish to send or bring Christian youth groups to Mexico.” Shallenberger, a former choir director, was convicted in 1975 and 1985 for sexual abuse of young boys during choir trips. While living in the states in 1994, he tried to recruit 12 children from Illinois for a trip to Mexico. When law enforcement authorities learned about the trip and tried to bring him back to court, he fled to Mexico.

On June 2, 1998, Bishop Joseph Symons of Palm Beach, Fla., resigned for having sexually molested five teenaged boys during his earlier career as a priest. In a letter left by Symons, he admitted to “inappropriate sexual behavior with minors,” and apologizing to those he had hurt while asking for prayer from the faithful. Never before has so a high-ranking American Catholic clergyman been forced to leave office as an admitted pedophile. After a couple of notorious cases in the mid-1980s, priest-pedophilia began to receive widespread and sensational attention from newspapers, newsmagazines, and television (even a HBO special movie). This case drew little attention nationwide. According to Jenkins, who wrote Pedophiles and Priests in 1995, said the evidence indicates that pedophilia among Catholic priests is no more common than among clergy of other faiths, or in the population at large. Liberal Catholics (and gay activist) seized on publicized cases as a failure of the institutional church fixing responsibility on its continued embrace of clerical celibacy. Conservatives took priest-pedophilia as yet another proof of post-Vatican II laxity, and demanded that the church take a tougher line on homosexuality. (CPR notes: homosexual activist have used this problem to claim discrimination and bash the Catholic Church for its position on homosexuality. Obviously, there have been homosexuals and homosexual pedophiles who have enter the church priesthood in order to corrupt it and try to change it.)

In December 2, 1998 issue of the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) released a cumulative report on male child sexual abuse. The article stated that it was estimated that 1 out of 4 girls are sexually molested in America today. This report makes the conservative claim that 1 in 5 boys are also sexually assaulted. The article reviewed 176 scientific research studies over the past 12 years dealing with male child sexual abuse. The staggering results are as follows: As high as 94% of all perpetrators abusing boys were men. Sexually abused boys described three or more sexual acts. These included but not limited to forced anal penetration, oral or genital contact. Abuse involving anal penetration covered in the report was up to two-third’s of the cases. Male sexual abuse victims are 4 times more likely to suffer major depression, 3 times greater to have bulimia; and twice as likely to have developed behavioral problems. Suicide rates range from 1.5 to 14 times higher than the average teenage boy. Substance abuse rates are 12 to 44 times higher than normal. Boy victims were up to 7 times more likely to identify themselves as homosexual or bisexual. Source: William C. Holmes, Md, MSCE, Gail B.

Pornography may be defined as sexually explicit material that somebody finds offensive, indecent, or in bad taste. The question then becomes, “who ought to decide, and should their viewpoint be institutionalized in a way that affects others?” In my judgment, no single text can fully reflect the diversity of viewpoints generated by this topic. Politically, pornography may be akin to a Rorschach test. That is, an individual’s viewpoint, if spoken honestly, likely reflects more about his or her own beliefs and values than about pornography itself. Historically, opinions about pornography have been used to justify literary censorship and criminalization. Perhaps, the bottom line politically is that we may have to agree to disagree, and that mutual tolerance and respect for individual viewpoints represents the best contemporary solution. In growing up, persons do not decide what will arouse them sexually. Rather, they discover the nature of their own sexual makeup. Viewing pornography likely causes the release of opiate-like chemicals in the brain. Some relationships falter because a spouse considers a partner’s interest, whether in oral sex, bondage, or cross dressing, pornographic. Those with unconventional sexual interests, no matter how decent they might otherwise be, are often labeled “perverts.” Such prejudices can compromise objective exploration, and publication, of relevant mental health research. The expression of sex in a coercive, non-consenting fashion, or with children, too young to give meaningful consent, cannot be accepted. Yet in considering the effects of pornography in such instances, it is important to note that explicit pictures of adult erotic activity would likely not be of much interest to an individual who is sexually attracted to children, whereas the classic RCA Victor logo of the dog pulling down the pajama bottoms of a young boy might be viewed as highly pornographic. Individuals arrested for downloading child pornography from the Internet in recent years have included (1) a West Point alumnus, and former armed forces intelligence officer, who had graduated from law school magna cum laude, with a documented IQ of 172; (2) an employee of the United States Senate who had downloaded pornography onto a government computer; and (3) an FBI agent. In summary, what then can be said about pornography, and about its publication? Perhaps it is to speak against both secular and sectarian prejudices. When either intemperate sexual expression, or intemperate religious zeal, risks harm to others, society should strive to prevent that from occurring. There is not one correct response to questions about pornography, and no single book (Bible?) has given a definitive answer. In preparing our children to grow up, we must prepare them for the fact that there is sexual diversity. It should be acceptable to exclude pornography from one’s own life for religious, personal or mental health reasons, while still respecting the rights of others to publish it, and to have access to it. One of society’s most vexing challenges may be to overcome unwarranted prejudices about sexual differences, and about their potential expression through pornography. (Paper’s note: Fred S.

Robert Bruce Craft, a 57 year old child psychologist, was found guilty of 99 felony counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, three counts of misdemeanor sexual exploitation of a minor and 15 felony counts of child molestation. For hours during the three-day trail, Judge Carl C. Brown Jr. viewed hundreds of photographs of children partially and completely nude and photographs of children with legs spread, often revealing underwear and genitals. “Anybody seeing the 616 photographs prosecutors presented as evidence could not help but react emotionally and with anger,” said Defense Attorney Rowe Stayton. “Everything this man has done has fits the classic profile of a pedophile,” said District Attorney Danny Craig. The investigation began when an FBI agent in October of 1996 interviewed the doctor about a series of photographs of a 3-year-old boy. Armed with search warrants, The FBI seized thousands of photos and slides from Dr. Craft’s home and office. State law enforcement officials wanted to move quickly. One reason was that Dr. Craft was under contract with the Department of Family and Children Services to treat child patients. Judge Brown may structure a sentence ranging from probation, a combination of probation and prison, or prison. The minimum sentence is five years. The maximum: 2,283 years.

Most criminals mellow with age. But sexual predators are different, as a child molester or violent rapist matures into old age, his urge to engage in illegal sex remains acute, sometimes even growing stronger. Often, the country’s oldest prisoners are sex offenders imprisoned relatively recently and considered too dangerous to parole. In a 1997 study, the Federal Bureau of Justice Statistics found that released rapists were more than 10 times as likely as ex-cons charged with other crimes to be rearrested for rape. Convicted sex offenders were 7.5 times more likely to be rearrested for sexual assault. Due to states adopting “Megan’s Law”, more sex offenders are being reported. In Wisconsin, the population of sex criminals has risen by 132% over the past 10 years.

Baltimore Magazine in June of 1999 decided to do an article about a teenage boy who comes out to his parents. In the beginning of the story, the boy at age 14 goes on the internet after getting an ad out of the City Paper about a “gay” chat room. There the boy meets a homosexual man of 24. Eventually, the adult homosexual goes to the boys’ house, takes him to dinner and they go together to a “gay” bar called “Allegro“. This bar often appears in the Baltimore Gay Paper. The bar celebrates Friday nights as “Boywatch Dance Party” and on Sunday nights has “Boy Toy Night.” This Kind of mentoring is common in the male homosexual world.

Citizens for Parents’ Rights (CPR) attended a workshop by Planned Parenthood of Maryland on June 10, 1999. The all day workshop entitled “Unequal Partners: Addressing Power and Consent in Adult-Teen Relationships,” was open to all persons who worked with children. A sexual relationship was deemed “healthy” as long as the child was mature enough to give “informed consent.” So, executive director of CPR, Tres Kerns, asked the facilitator, ” Are you saying that a 13-year-old dating or having sexual relationships with a 21-year-old is okay?” He responded, ” I’m not making that judgment call, I don’t know. I think there are objective ways of measuring that.” We are talking about a 13-year-old having sex with an adult. This is statutory rape in the state of Maryland, yet Planned Parenthood thinks nothing of it! Lest anyone miss the underlying theme of that workshop, one of the main points at the end of the conference was shown on a overhead slide that stated ” Not all adult-teen relationships are negative.” Source: Lynn M.

” It’s about time you woke up down there in Massachusetts,” says Katherine Prudhomme, a New Hampshire woman who organized a petition drive to get officials to explain the case of Scott Selinger, a man who was arrested for molesting a boy, was freed on $5,000 bail and then kidnapped 6 year-old Mark DeVoe in her state. She is exasperated with the political culture of the Bay State, and of “judges who are so open-minded that their brains are falling out,” she told Massachusetts News. This is just one of several recent incidents in which accused or convicted sex offenders were arrested for committing more sex crimes against children while out on bail, parole, or probation. In June 1999, George Roy was charged with sexual assault of a 4 old girl in Springfield, Mass. He was previously convicted of a sex crime, but was never registered as a sex offender. In June 1999, Micheal Vick, a man with a history of sex convictions, was arrested for molesting a four-month old boy. In November 1998, Eben Hoyt was arrested for dozens of child rapes while on probation, and while registered as a sex offender. In January 1999, a twice-convicted sex offender was arrested for raping a four-year old boy. This April, 1999, Brian Nagle, who had been convicted of sex crimes in 1987 and 1996, and was registered as a level III [most dangerous] sex offender, raped a 6 year-old boy. Unfortunately, (most) sex offenders usually do not get treatment, and even more rarely get effective treatment, until after they are released. It is also unlikely that sex offenders will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. “Shoplifters can spend more time in jail than child molesters,” said Sgt.

The article opens: “The child molester has found a home in the world of youth sports, where as a coach he can gain the trust and loyalty of kids – and then prey on them.” Norman Waston, a convicted pedophile, states in this ten page story “…I have a predisposition to want to be around, and am sexually aroused by, young boys…” The report goes on to say that the average male pedophile coach molests 120 boys before being caught. A FBI agent, said ” These sex offenders ‘will molest more children than any other type.’ Anywhere from 12 to 500 or 600.” Towards the end of the article, a basketball coach in Boston, who has confessed to taking nude whirlpool baths with boys he coaches, is suing parents who filed complains against him that resulted in him losing his job. Boston has a law protecting “sexual orientation” against discrimination and hate crimes.

(CPR Note: In this story the reporters reference 13 specific incidents of teachers molesting children; 3 are heterosexual acts, 6 are homosexual acts, and 4 of the abuse cases, the sex of the child is not given. We have just noted a few examples in this excerpt and have the website listed in the source section, this excerpt is part one of a three part report) Children are often taught in school to look out for adults who might hurt them. But sometimes, the grown-ups in their own classrooms are the ones who could do the most harm. Sexual misconduct by educators is a sensitive subject that’s been whispered about in school hallways and behind closed office doors. A lack of public acknowledgement has helped the problem to spread and the bad teachers to circulate. It’s a problem that resonates nationally. Joseph Doherty, resigned under pressure after being accused of sexually assaulting a student in 1997. He relocated and was able to get a teaching job in Maryland even though school officials had sent his case to the (Maryland) state department of education for review. Doherty got a teaching job in Prince George’s County, Md. Doherty had been secretly videotaped by his former school who had become suspicious of his behavior. On tape, he was seen engaged in what he called “wrestling moves” with a 12-year-old boy in his locked classroom. Even though prosecutors argued that Doherty was obviously sexually aroused in the videotape, the district justice decided that no crime had been committed. Doherty has filed a civil lawsuit against his former School district, claiming they defamed his character. Gary Serio taught elementary school in Westmoreland County in the early 1970s’ before being sent to prison in 1974 for child molestation. His license to teach in Pennsylvania wasn’t revoked until last year (1998), because he was once again convicted of molesting three boys in his new school in New York.
