If your child was attending a private, religious school would it concern you if the child´s teacher/counselor suddenly admitted that he was gay?
Lutheran High School of Greater Minneapolis found itself in such a situation with Roger Franzen, a gay pastor/teacher who taught religion at the school. Discussions ensued following this discovery and Franzen agreed to resign at the end of the 2000 school year while remaining closeted and celibate.
Less than two years later, attorneys came out of the woodwork to help Franzen sue the school and denomination for discrimination and invasion of privacy.
Minnesotas Human Rights Act, particularly as amended by the infamous 1994 gay rights amendment, seems to specifically afford religious institutions these discretions. The Franzen case should get nowhere fast.
But the issue of gays and public schools was recently highlighted in a U.S. District Court decision involving the New York City public school system. There the court ruled that the school system did not interfere with a teacher´s First Amendment rights when it fired him after discovering his active participation in the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). NAMBLA supports repealing the age of consent and child pornography laws as well as openly endorsing men and boys involved in underage sexual relationships.
But should such a ruling extend to homosexuals without such obvious connections to NAMBLA? The answer lies in whether there is a significant correlation between homosexuals and pedophile activity.
Gay activists have strenuously argued that there is no connection between homosexuality and the sexual abuse of children. They point out that the majority of child molestation cases are by heterosexuals. But they neglect a pivotal fact: Homosexuals comprise only a small percentage of the population, yet account for an extraordinarily high percentage of offenses against children.
A recent study in Demography estimated the number of exclusive male homosexuals in the general population at 2.5 percent, and the number of exclusive lesbians at 1.4 percent. The study took into account three large data sets, including the all-encompassing U.S. Census.
Now consider a report from the Journal of Sex Research which noted that homosexual pedophiles commit about one-third of the total number of child sex offenses, even though they are outnumbered by heterosexuals 20 to one. Less than four percent of the population commits one-third of the offenses against children!
In The Gay Report, homosexual researchers report data showing that better than 7 out of 10 homosexuals surveyed had at some time had sex with boys 16 to 19.
Or consider a study in Archives of Sexual Behavior, which found that of 229 convicted child molesters surveyed, 85 percent of offenders against males described themselves as homosexual or bisexual.
The evidence is clear. Homosexuals have an overwhelming propensity towards child molestation. This is not to say that all homosexuals act out with pedophile tendencies. But the percentage of those who do is so disproportionately high it would be irresponsible and costly to ignore. Just ask the Roman Catholic Church.
The Catholic Church´s coffers are being drained by the millions to defend and settle an array of alleged child sex offenses by a number of priests. But the Catholic Church appears to have left itself open to further lawsuits when the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops adopted a Charter for the protection of children and young people. Included is the declaration that for even a single act of sexual abuse of a minor past, present, or future the offending priest will be permanently removed from the ministry. This one strike, you´re out policy for priests is a common sense start but not enough.
The Bishops´ Charter is silent on the likeliest cause of the abuse problem the existence of a large number of homosexuals in the priesthood. The Conference would benefit by heeding the words of Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Vall, who declared that people with these inclinations just cannot be ordained. That does not imply a final judgment of people with homosexuality. But you cannot be in this field. Instead the Conference, in apparent kowtowing to the gay lobby and political correctness, adopted a Charter that mandates the implementation of adequate screening and evaluative techniques in deciding the fitness of candidates for ordination, as well as a focus on the question of human formation for celibate and chastity.
No matter the screening, even if there is no history of prior child molestation, placing homosexuals in settings with children such as schools is akin to putting heterosexual male sex offenders in a sorority house instead of a halfway house.
With the abnormally high percentage of homosexuals accounting for pedophile activity, children in all school settings private or public need protection. To neglect this is to continue to place our children knowingly in harm´s way.
A 40-year-old is under arrest, charged with soliciting sex from a minor over the Internet.
Ross Strumlauf was arrested by offices of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office in the parking lot of Regency Square, where police say he thought he was going to meet a 13-year-old girl. Police say Strumlauf, believing he was communicating with the teen, exposed himself and offered to pay her for sex.
Officers regularly pose as young girls in Internet chat rooms looking for sexual predators.
Strumlauf also is charged with transmission of harmful materials to a minor over the Internet.
Was that when they were older, or when they themselves were 16 to 19 ? If it was when they themselves were that age, then the same percentage holds for heterosexuals. If so, then the later statement that the "great majority of homosexuals have a propensity towards child molestation" is false.
Do you (or anyone else out there) have another study that clarifies this ?

Let me ask you a question: if the average homosexual male were required to let his health insurance company know about his sexual status in the same way that smokers must inform their health insurance company about their habit, could the average gay man afford health insurance?
Answer: of course not. We are paying for the consequences of their sodomitical lifestyles. They are mooching off us. Homosexuals cannot survive without the stability provided by the surrounding heterosexual community, nor can they get "fresh meat" without it either. They are predators. The "gay rights" movement is nothing but special pleading from a bunch of sex perverts who want to socialize the consequences of their depraved lifestyles. Homosexuality is disgusting and utterly destructive to society.
Why, tell me, can someone prey on teen boys for sex, claim to be heterosexual, and be taken seriously? At minimum, if it's same-sex adult/child sex then it's homosexual and vice versa. Gay groups with ulterior motives try to redefine the premises of studies in order to guarantee a favorable outcome. If kids are going to be protected, we need to be interested in truth only. When one group claims that sex between two men or two women is biologically normal, truth is already a casualty of the debate.
Someone who is 18 or 19 is old enough to vote, serve in the armed fores, and get married. A man of that age is not a child.
