Pedophilia More Common Among 'Gays'
purports to reveal 'dark side' of homosexual culture

and pedophilia occur far more commonly among homosexuals than among
heterosexuals on a per capita basis, according to a new study.
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.
Baldwin is the
executive director of the Council for National Policy in Washington, D.C.
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
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."
is substantiated in a recently completed body of work written by Dr.
Judith Reisman, president of the Institute for Media Education 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
whose targets were males."
"The rate of
homosexual versus heterosexual child sexual abuse is staggering," said
Reisman, who was the principal investigator for an $800,000 Justice Department
grant studying child pornography and violence. "Abels data of 150.2 boys
abused per male homosexual offender finds no equal (yet) in heterosexual
violations of 19.8 girls."

Friends of Lesbians and Gays, counters that federal crime data refute claims
that homosexuals molest children at higher rates than heterosexuals.
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 experience."
And Gary Schoener,
a clinical psychologist who has been diagnosing and treating clergy abuse for 28
years, told Salon.com, "There are far more heterosexual cases than
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.
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.
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.

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."

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
must do it for the children's sake."
- 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.
newspapers and travel publications advertise prominently for countries where
boy prostitution is heavy, such as Burma, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and
the homosexual lifestyle confirms it is almost exclusively a youth-oriented
culture," Baldwin wrote. "Very few gays exhibit preference for older
"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
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
"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 WorldNetDaily.
Other experts have
also found a distinct pattern between child sex abusers and the incidence of
"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

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.

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
