Homosexual Rape and Murder of Children
Journal of the Family Research Institute ^ | Feb 2003 | Dr. Paul Cameron

Posted on 04/14/2003 5:06:15 PM PDT by Remedy

The homosexual historical footprint is large when it comes to the rape and murder of children. The most notorious child killer might be Gilles de Rais (Bluebeard), remembered for raping, torturing, and killing perhaps 800 boys in 15th century France. Gilles often raped the boy as he hung from a hook by the neck. Before he died, Gilles took him down, comforted him, repeated the act and either killed him himself or had him slain. In his confession, Gilles testified that "when the children were dead he kissed them and those who had the most handsome limbs and heads he held up to admire them, and had their bodies cut open and took delight at the sight of their inner organs; and very often when the said children were dying he sat on their stomachs and took pleasure in seeing them die and laughed..." (

At the turn of the 19th century, "hobos" or "bums" in the U.S. were often driven from towns because it was believed that they were responsible for raping and killing boys. Even the murder of a boy by homosexual lovers Leopold and Loeb in 1924, then called the "crime of the century," likely involved rape. As of July 23, 2001, the Associated Press list of the worst serial killers in the United States was topped by Donald Harvey, followed by John Wayne Gacy, Patrick Kearney, Bruce Davis and Dean Corll in descending number of victims ( All these perpetrators of serial crimes in the 1970s and 1980s engaged in homosexuality, and the majority of the victims for the last four killers were boys.

Nevertheless, girls get raped and murdered too. Homosexual activists would have us believe that heterosexual abductions are far more common than homosexual child molestations. Perhaps our society has been so slanted against homosexuality that homosexuals are themselves victims of biased historical reporting. If so, what is the situation today? With our modern professional class Ñ including the media Ñ generally in favor of gay rights, it would seem likely that there ought to be minimal reporting bias against homosexuals in the coverage of child molestation cases. So the question remains: are those who engage in homosexuality disproportionately apt to engage in the rape and murder of children?

What We Did

Lexis-Nexis Academic Universe, an on-line search service, scans the whole text of over 50 English regional and national newspapers, largely in the U.S., but also including major papers in Australia, England, Canada, and New Zealand (e.g., the Baltimore Sun, Boston Globe, Independent [London], Ottawa Citizen, etc.). For 1989 through 2002 inclusive, every news story that included "child molestation" was examined Ñ a total of 6,444 stories which, after eliminating repeat stories about the same cases, reduced to 1,914 unique child molestation events. The 6,444 story database was double-checked by running "murder" and "killed" against it. Only news stories were tallied, not editorials or opinion pieces, so these were stories of fairly recent events.

What We Found

One hundred and three news stories involved the rape and/or murder of children: 90 involved the molestation and murder of a child or children, 11 stories involved only the abduction and rape of children, and two the rape and mutilation, but not the murder, of the children involved. Of the 90 news stories where the child was raped and murdered (0.47% of the unique child molestation stories), 40% involved homosexual molestation.

In the most unusual case, an "educated and relatively wealthy" leader recruited two other men and a boy. This team raped and murdered precisely 100 boys1. The leader had had prior arrests for suspicion of sodomizing boys, but his social status kept him from being convicted for many years. In another case, a man molested and killed 9 children of unreported sex.

Of the 95 perpetrators in these 90 stories, at least 43% engaged in homosexuality. These included 39 men, a boy, and a woman who all engaged in homosexuality, and 47 men and 7 boys who engaged in heterosexuality with victims. Of the 217 victims, at least 68% were victimized by homosexual perpetrators, and at least 67% were boys. Boys were also mutilated in the two stories involving mutilation. Furthermore, both multiple perpetrators and multiple victims were associated with homosexuality. In the three stories where two or more killers were implicated, the rapes were homosexual. In 69% of the 13 stories involving more than one victim, the perpetrator engaged in homosexuality. Another 11 stories involved a charge of attempted murder. In 64% of those cases, the perpetrator engaged in homosexuality.

When all other cases of child molestation from the Lexis-Nexis search are added to these stories, there were 2,181 perpetrators in the 1,914 distinct events whose sexual proclivities could be characterized by the sex of their victim: 41% engaged in sex with their own sex, the remaining 59% with the opposite sex (another 118 perpetrators violated at least 190 children whose sex was not given). Of the 5,630 underage victims of these molestations, 61% were victimized by individuals who engaged in homosexuality. And those who performed homosexual seductions were quite one-sided: 3,386 of their victims were boys, only 60 were girls.

Overall, there was a slightly higher rate of homosexuality among perpetrators who raped and killed than among those who "merely" raped or molested (43% vs. 41%). In addition, the proportion of victims attributed to homosexual perpetrators who raped and murdered was higher than the proportion attributed to homosexuals who only raped or molested (68% vs. 61%). All of the cases involving eating or torturing the victim were committed by homosexual practitioners.

What the Findings Mean

The newspapers indexed by Academic Universe undoubtedly concentrate upon events that occur in urban areas. Nonetheless, since the rape and murder of a child is of such widespread interest, a considerable proportion of such events outside of urban areas were probably also cited in these newspapers. It may even be true that the proportions of perpetrators and victims in this sample are roughly representative of what has recently happened in the industrialized world.

Contrary to the claims of homosexual activists, history seems to have repeated itself. The past 14 years give every indication that those who engage in homosexuality are still disproportionately involved in the rapes and murders of children. Likewise, the few instances of mutilation also implicated homosexuals. The historical record disproportionately implicating homosexuals in the rape, torture, and murder of children appears to be in harmony with more recent events.

Murder and child molestation combine in the rape and murder of a child. These two social problems are also independently associated with those who engage in homosexuality. Blanchard, Barbaree, Bogaert, Dicky, Klassen, Kuban, and Zucker, working with male offenders, concluded in 2000 that2 the "best epidemiological evidence indicates that only 2-4% of men attracted to adults prefer menÉ; in contrast, around 25-40% of men attracted to children prefer boys.... Thus the rate of homosexual attraction is 6-20 times higher among pedophiles [those who have sex with children under the age of 12 yr.]" (p. 464).

Likewise, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual III-R (DSM III-R, 1987)3 of the American Psychiatric Association, summarizing the clinical material about men, states that "Attraction to girls [aged 13 yr. or younger] is apparently twice as common as attraction to boys" and notes that the "course is usually chronic, especially in those attracted to boys.... The recidivism rate for people with Pedophilia involving a preference for the same sex is roughly twice that of those who prefer the opposite sex" (pp. 284-5).

Both of these sources estimated that about a third of child molesters engage in homosexuality Ñ similar to the 41% of male perpetrators who ‘only’ raped the underage in the newspaper database. In other studies4, it has also been found that male perpetrators who engage in homosexuality claim larger numbers of rape victims than non-homosexual rapists. For instance, 84% of the 28,574 children under the age of 14 who were raped in Abel, et al. were victimized by homosexuals. Also, the higher rates of recidivism by homosexuals noted in the DSM would imply more victims too.

In line with these reports, of the 217 victims in the 90 murder and rape stories, at least 68% were victimized by homosexual perpetrators. This 68% falls between the estimate that "roughly equal numbers of girls and boys, each year fall victim to some form of sexual exploitation" cited in a recent National Association of Social Workers review of a large set of studies of child molestation5 and the 84% reported by Abel, et al.

Murder also appears to be disproportionately associated with homosexuality. Jim Warren did the intake interview for almost all younger murderers (i.e., those under age 36) at the Washington State Corrections Center from 1971-82. In an interview in 1994, Warren opined that he was "probably the only one who examined the entirety of each of their case files." Warren said that he was struck with how frequently homosexuality turned up in the cases. Starting with a trickle of 2 or 3 murders/year in 1972 until dozens/year by the early 1980s, he noted a recurrent pattern: Although the motive listed in the report was often robbery or theft, he said that "about 50% of the time" it was associated with homosexuality. Typically, he said, a homosexual would meet someone at a bar or park and invite him to his home. Eventually, an argument would ensue and he or his visitor would be dead.

In Amsterdam, police spokesmen have stated that in "one out of four of all murder cases the victim was homosexual" (quoted by Gemert, 1994, p. 150)6. Gemert opined that "[e]lderly homosexual men often don’t have much to do in daily life. When they know that they will be unwanted in the gay world in the future, they will... seek this form of excitement. Visiting Central Station and ‘hunting’ boys is very important to them" (p. 172). Gemert thus offers a theory about the linkage between child molestation, murder and homosexuality Ñ albeit, one that accounts for the high rate at which homosexuals are murdered by boys, not why they in turn disproportionately rape and murder boys.

Although murder and rape of children are not common events, they are extremely frightening and can greatly impact the communities in which they occur. As its most precious resource, our society takes great pains to protect children and to ensure their safety. Amazingly, our society is also at the vanguard of the pro-gay rights movement. But consider: a group constituting perhaps 1% to 5% of men (1.3% in the 1996 National Household Survey of Drug Abuse; higher in Black, et al.7, Anderson & Stall8, and Cameron & Cameron9) generated 43% of those who were recorded in the most recent 14 years of news stories as having raped and killed children. That this group also accounts for around a third of child molesters, commits between a third to two-thirds of child rapes, and may be involved in up to half of all murders, adds substance to the traditional belief that participation in homosexual activity is anti-social.

I don't why the guilt of Bluebeard must fall on all those who find love and sexual satisfaction in relationships with the same sex.

I think he was showing how perversions tend to reach higher levels. Not unlike men having sex in rest areas, public parks and restrooms. How did we end up there?

Who said this?

I did not read it - did you make it up?

Why would someone make up something about someone else?

No - your IQ was always that low - it is you just that you finally realized it.

That or your bias clouds your judgment?

Instead of making fourth grade insults why not actually show us all the data you use to defend your position?

Do you (or anyone else) know anything more about Dr. paul Cameron?

Enough to take everything he says with a grain of salt. Seriously, there are plenty of valid reasons to resist the homosexual agenda without pandering to the dark side of people's emotions.

But if invoking the oldest, most heinous stereotypes of homos makes people feel good about themselves, so be it. It doesn't really serve any other purpose.

Spend a little more time reading the scriptures before you opine. Those in the prersence of Christ will not be able to see the suffering and torment, else heaven would be flawed. It was the rich man in torment who could see the comforting of Lazarus. Look it up.

There are no facts here, they are observations of a small group of people by another small group of people. Sociology is not a science. I am not advocating either homosexuality or peadophilia.

This is true, but I hope I can explain it a little more.
If you give your life to Christ, the first thing he ask is that you repent (change direction) of your ways or lifestyle that is not pleasing to God. Nobody is sinless, but you cannot practice sin as is; Witchcraft, Murder, Drug dealing, Homosexuality, Pedophelia, Sexual Immorality, Etc...
These sins that are practiced in a lifesyle, say as a prostitute, pornagapher, contract or serial killer, or satan worshiping,spell caster. God will forgive and love you if you make an honest effort in your heart to turn from these things and walk with him.

"It is a mental issue that must be dealt with in love and with a helping spirit - but firmly."

I agree.
"Homosexuality(A) is just another manifestation of a anti-social behavior which includes a high rate of pedophilia(B)!"
The belief here is that if we could eliminate, or reduce A we could eliminate, or reduce B.

Do you realize what that implies?

Pedophilia harms innocent children and is evil.
Sex between consenting adults is another matter.

Sex between consenting adults of the same sex is another matter that leads to much higher rates of Pedophilia which harms innocent children and is evil.

It implies helping.

I do not suggest that we punish those that have done nothing wrong (that includes Sex between consenting adults of the same sex), I suggest we look at reality and start helping these poor sick people.

Such a destructive behaviour and yet nobody wants to deal with it, so we pretend it is just "different". How sad.

It has been 2.5 years since that gay crime occurred. I am waiting for the Hollywood to make a movie about those sodomities.

Good grief... what's with all the homo apologetics on this thread. You would think this was a pro-gay website based on some of these posts. Does anyone think for themselves anymore? As in dicerning what is truth and right independent of the liberal crowd teling you what to believe?

Homosexuality might not lead to peadophilia, it may be just another manifestation of anti-social behavior.

And that's all the author concludes. Read it again.

I believe FR has had an influx of trolls as a result of our successes.

With that said, has anyone heard of a book called "The Pink Swastika" Its about how homosexual behavior was rampant in the upper echelons of Hitlers inner circle. Those who were turned in for homosexuality were just political adversaries.

I agree. These sick, people need to be helped. Anyone who would harm a child is sick.
