Well we certainly shouldn't dismiss his story. He was molested by a homosexual (recruited) and lived that life until he turned to Christ.
How many homosexuals were molested as children by other homosexuals? I would really like to see a study done on that.
LJ, DBeers, Do you know of a study done on this?
I completely sympathize with his abuse story. But it is vital for victims to understand that if and when they sin, they are 100% guilty and responsible regardless of their past. God won't be handing out get-out-of-sin-free cards to anyone (aside from those who with repentant faith, confess Jesus as Savior and Lord of their life). Everyone has a story about how they were wronged by others because we live in a world packed full of sinners. Accept the blame for your own sins. That's the only right response.
I am sure that the APA at one time had and or commissioned such research PRIOR to blindly embracing all things homosexual; however, I myself can not recall anything...
Scripter might be able to reference something though.
I will put looking for any studies on this on my to do list and ping you should I find anything.
Here are three articles with some info, at least one of the FR links (and maybe both) have more info down the thread as well. Scripter is the man when it comes to knowing all, I haven't seen him lately as he is very busy. Maybe he'll notice this and toss something our way!
How Might Homosexuality Develop?
Putting the Pieces Together
Root Causes, Homosexual Consequences
You are right, a large majority of homosexuals were molested when either pre-pubescent children or young adolescents.
My evidence is purely anecdotal but extensive. I worked in the airline industry(a very gay heavy industry) for some years and early molestation was the one common thread between all the gay men I got to know in my time there.
How many lesbians were molested by heterosexual men? I would really like to see a study done on that.
