Sex before 8 - or it's too late! Craige McMillan on how media covers for homosexual child abusers
WorldNetDaily.com ^ | Thursday, March 14, 2002 | Craige McMillan

Posted on 03/14/2002 12:48:01 AM PST by JohnHuang2

Sometimes what you don't say is as important as what you do say. In that vein, if you believe the media in America, then last year 92,700 men and boys in the U.S. were raped by women. Are you incredulous? Me, too.

But I draw that conclusion because the national media has reported no homosexual rapes of men or boys last year. The crime statistic comes from a 1998 federal study, which also found 302,100 females raped in the same "average" year. (Cited in USA Today, "Natural rape theory creates instant storm," by Dan Vergano, Jan. 18, 2000.)

There was no lack of stories about these women, however. Go to any major news site and type "rape" into their search engine. Dozens or hundreds of stories appear; all cases of men raping women or girls. Is there even one story about men raping boys?

In fact, I don't believe that 92,700 men and boys were raped last year by American women. I believe that the overwhelming majority were raped by homosexual men.

"Ho, hum," says the U.S. media. "Don't bother us. We're busy. We have these water buckets we're carrying for NAMBLA." Those initials stand for the North American Man Boy Love Association. Their long-standing motto, "sex before eight – or it's too late," only recently revised, makes their intent pretty clear.

Homosexuals, as represented in the U.S. media, come in only two varieties: upstanding citizen and persecuted victim.

Do homosexual priests rape choirboys? Not in medialand. There, Catholic priests abuse children – a phrase that's so gender-inclusive, and manages to twist one's attention onto the Catholic church, not the homosexual men who have made inroads into the clergy so they can prey on the innocence of children.

Do homosexual pastors rape congregants? Not in medialand. There "ministers are found with naked teens" and charged with "unlawful sex acts with a minor." Such inclusive language … my, isn't the media open-minded and progressive? We'd never guess it was male pastors and little boys, would we?

No, homosexual pastors and priests are all "victims" of "religious discrimination" and the "homophobia" of parents not open-minded enough to want predatory homosexual men who commit rapes in this country to be preying on their 8-year-old children. Except the homosexual bucket-brigade in the U.S. media doesn't have time to tell us that. No, they're too busy getting homosexuals into our churches as pastors, into our schools as teachers and coaches, into Boy Scout troops as scoutmasters, and into every other major position of authority over children.

The media is too busy raping the Christian church on its news pages, the Boy Scouts during its evening news broadcasts, and the military in its editorials and at its cocktail parties. No, Mom, Dad, Grandma and Grandpa don't warrant the truth, because it just might slow down the bucket brigade, and imply that homosexuals could possibly be, like the rest of us, just a smidgen short of sainthood.

At this point I truly wish we could take a trip back in time to Joseph Goebbels' office in Nazi Germany. Don't you think the propaganda master would be astonished at the ideological bucket brigade the U.S. media has become?

Oddly enough, I don't condemn homosexuals – they are in the grip of an incredibly powerful delusion and acting in what they believe are their own best interests. Unfortunately, their best interests do not coincide with the best interests of children, families and the next generation.

No, my condemnation is reserved for those who know the truth, but speak and write the big lie. Surely the question asked by Jesus of the ancient Israeli priesthood about their lies and hypocrisy loaded onto the backs of the common people applies to the American media today:

"You serpents, you generation of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of Hell?"

At least this big, outrageous scandal finally rips the lid off the can of worms, literally.

Nobody, I think, is missing that it's homosexual men.

The only question in my mind is whether the gay strategists have decided that they've worn down and demoralized the public sufficiently, that they can now take the hit and ride it out, or whether this all spilled out accidentally and they are now relying on their allies in Mass Media to perform enough damage control, to save them from a paradigm shift in public thinking about homosexuality and what "reconciling" really entails for the "reconciling congregation" -- and a little more specifically, for some of the "reconciling" congregants.

People who've been watching the GLSEN/PFLAG/HRC propaganda have always known that the ultimate objectives are the reversal of the relationship between Levitically abstemious churches and the gay community (moral rejectionists into the underground), and a toll of boys for the accommodationists.

This is far from profound, but I've noticed that "news" the major media outlets broadcast/print is far less revealing than the news they refuse to disseminate or attempt to hide.

Ironically, I didn't really notice this phenomena until the early 1990's......Hmmmmmm.

In fact, without the Washington Times, Free Republic and Human Events, I would probably be unaware of attrocities that are ignored by the major media.

Not very likely.

I used to feel neutral about the deviants but no more.

No, tolerance is not what I feel. Tolerance: all gone.

Since I come to Free Republic for 99.9% of my news, I depend on the great Freepers to let me know what is happening in our world.

Nambla members probably make up a high % of the predator homosexuals who control the left wing maggot fish wraps and tv channels. So we will never read anything about what they really do to young boys except here and the few sites brave enough to repost what is really happening.

The only time a Nambla/homosexual predator makes the front page is if he is a priest! Of course the words Nambla and predatory homosexual are never mentioned in the stories. He was just an evil priest who committed these terrible crimes!

I think that reparative therapy should be advocated for these people. As far as jail goes, send 'em there only if they are actually proven to have raped somebody, man or boy, just like any other rapist.

Just last year in Pittsburgh we had a sensational trial for a "homeless man" Joseph Cornelius who murdered a boy. The press never mentioned that he raped the boy or that he was a homosexual. Instead of rape they reported the defenses contention that Cornelius and the boy had consensual sex. The boy was 11 years old. The press makes me sick.

We would not jail someone because they say they are homosexual any more than we would jail someone for saying they are a thief. That is hearsay and not proof. You cannot jail someone without proof. Now if you see them engaging in this activity then you have proof. Homosexuals will always claim that they will be arrested just because they say they are homosexuals but I have seen no evidence that this will happen. I could walk into any police station right now and proclaim I smoke pot or rob banks and they cannot and will not arrest me until I or someone else provides proof.

Bidinotto does excellent research for his articles. This one is several years old, BUT the stats he uses don't really change all that much over time. WARNING some VERY graphic descriptions of crime.

Freed to Rape Again

Readers Digest Special Report October 1991
By Robert James Bidinotto

By the time Michael L. Reese was 17, he had sexually assaulted at least four children. Each time he was caught he spent, at most, a few months in a youth facility or in counseling.

Later, given six years in prison for a rape, Reese was paroled in three. With in weeks, he attacked another girl and got six months in jail. Soon after his release, he raped again. But the judge refused to impose any mandatory minimum term. "I feel that is inconsistent with having him treated," he said.

After spending three years in a sex offender program at Oregon State Hospital, Reese was declared a "successful graduate" and paroled. Then he tried to sodomize an 11-year-old girl. He got three -- to -- ten more years, but was paroled after serving from the minimum sentence. Last December, Reese kidnapped and tried to sexually assault a young woman.

James Charles Stark got three years to life for a kidnap-- rape in California. He was paroled it less than three. After attempting rape again, he got 1 to 20 years but was three in three. Six months later, he molested a 14-year-old girl.

Stark was sent to Patton State Hospital near San Bernardino. After four years there, he was to return to court and sentenced to eight years in prison. Paroled only a year later, he then kidnapped, raped and shot a teenage girl.

Sickening cases like these two are occurring with alarming frequency, a nationwide Readers Digest investigation has discovered. Of the thousands of chronic rapists and child molesters, who prey on society, surprisingly few are arrested or convicted. And for those who are, the punishment rarely fits the crime.

Their juvenile offenses are glossed over. They are allowed to plea -- bargain. They are put on probation. When they do receive prison terms, they are paroled early. "Most return to their predatory ways," says Capt. Thomas Chronin of the Chicago Police Department, a noted expert on criminal psychology. "Often, their behavior escalates in frequency and brutality."

Haunting Picture. "Up to the mid-1960s, we saw few juvenile sex offenders," reports veteran forensic psychologist John Cochran. "Today, there's a flood."

The justice system has failed to come to grips with the problem. A study commissioned by Utah juvenile -- court executives explained that many sexual offenses by youths went unreported, or charges were dropped, redefined as normal "experimentation."

Teenagers Timothy Anthony Combs and Danny Lee Hill were well known to authorities in Warren, Ohio. Combs, who had and extensive arrest record, had been convicted for gross sexual imposition on another boy. Hill had been given a "permanent commitment" to juvenile facilities after raping two women at knifepoint, during which he threatened to kill his victims and rape one woman's three-year-old daughter. While incarcerated, Hill sexually molested a boy and threatened other boys with violence. Nevertheless, he was released after only a year.

On September 10, 1985, 12-year-old Raymond Fife of Warren, Ohio was biking to a Boy Scouts meeting. He never made it. Hill and Combs raped, beat and tortured Raymond. After choking him with his clothes, they impaled the unconscious born with a stick. Then they set him on fire.

Raymond, who was found by his father, Isaac, never regained consciousness and died two days later. The horrors of that evening still haunt Isaac. "I can't tell you the hell he has had to live with, seeing that picture in his mind," says his wife, Miriam.

"Bargain Day" in Court. Investigators have discovered that by the time sex criminals reach adulthood most have committed an extensive member of offenses that are never reported. Psychologist Philip Humbert of Eugene Oregon, was treating eight sex criminals charge with 16 offenses in all and convicted of 12. The eight admitted to over 13,000 deviant acts, including molestation and rape.

When the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit in Quantico, Virginia, research the backgrounds of incarcerated serial rapist, they found that 41 of them were responsible for at least 837 rapes and over 400 more attempts. In a study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, Emory University psychiatrist Gene G. Able found that 453 criminals admitted to molesting more than 67,000 children. Those who abused girls had an average of 52 victims each. But men who molested boys had an astonishing average of 150 victims.

When these repeat sex offenders are finally caught, they are encouraged to plead guilty to lesser charges in exchange for reduced punishment. Multiple charges pending against them are dropped, and they are often given probation instead of prison. Wisconsin Court of Appeals Judge Ralph Adam Fine asks, "What is the serial rapist to think when its 'bargain day' at the courthouse: three rapes for the price of one?"

Melvin Hemphill was arrested in Hollywood CA for robbery and accused of sexual assault by the victim. A plea bargain dropped all him but misdemeanor charge. Hemphill was freed on two years probation. Arrested again for robbery and sexual assault in Ohio, he was allowed to plea bargain only to robbery. His 3 to 15 years sentence was suspended. Hemphill was put on probation and sent back to California.

A few months later, in May 1988, a janitor at Hollywood High School followed a 200-ft. trail of blood to a ventilation shaft. There, strangled and sexually assaulted, was the body of teenager Robert Campo, Jr. Hemphill was soon arrested and allowed to plea bargain to second-degree murder. He will be eligible for parole in 1998.

"More than one person murdered my son," says Robert's mother, Mary Campo. "The whole criminal justice system let us down."

Crazy like a Fox. Many of us assume that anyone who would molest, torture or kill women or children must be insane. As a result says Terry Miller, an Oregon therapist who has worked with many violent offenders, "treatment programs have been used as a substitute for imprisonment." The Vermont based Safer Society Program, which monitors treatment efforts, reports that such programs have mushroom nationally, from fewer than 600 in 1986 to over 1400 today.

Yet, increasingly, experts reject the few that sexual deviants are mentally ill. Virginia clinical psychologist Stanton Samenow, has studied criminals for over twenty years. "The sex criminals anything but 'sick.' He is calculating and deliberate in his actions. He just shuts off his knowledge of right and wrong long enough to commit his crimes."

Warren Bland, the serial rapist, was sent to California's Atascadero mental hospital, released on probation, convicted for more rapes imprisoned and paroled. He then abductedd, sexually assaulted and tortured and 11-year-old boy with clothespins, wire and pliers. "I get my fun this way to" Bland told the screaming child.

Sexual predators take their primary pleasure in dominating a helpless victim. "They are playing God," says Miller.

No "Cure." Oregon researcher Lita Furby and two associates reviewed the reoffense rates of sex criminals from treatment programs through out North America and Europe. They concluded: "There is as yet no evidence that clinical treatment reduces rates of sex re-offenses." Cautions forensics psychologist Cochran, "Treatment has been oversold."

Moreover, the legal system rarely monitors offenders once they are diverted into therapy. "Judges and parole boards order sex criminals into treatment, but do not necessarily follow up when they quit," complains Steve Jensen, director of the Center for Behavioral Intervention in Beaverton, Oregon. And to often psychiatrist recycle dangerous offenders back into the streets, says Wisconsin's Judge Fine.

Convicted of exposing himself to a small boy in Washington, Wesley Allen Dodd entered a sex offender treatment program. Even though he repeatedly violated treatment rules, a court allowed him to move to Idaho and enroll in the another therapy program. Officials there said he seemed to be "benefiting from the sessions." Less than a month later, he was arrested for molesting another boy. Dodd was ordered to resume treatment.

Dodd moved back to Washington, abused a four-year old for months, then tried to lure another boy to an building. He spent 118 days in jail, was again put on probation and the to seek treatment.

In September 1989, Dodd raped and killed William and Cole Neer, ages 10 and 11. In October he sodomized four-year-old Lee Iseli, then hung the boy in a closet to die. In November, Dodd was caught trying to abduct another boy from a movie theater. He now awaits execution.

Theodore Frank was convicted of numerous statistic sexual assaults on children. Frank was committed to, then released from, several mental hospitals, where he became an eager student of psychology. He was invited back to a California hospital to lecture as a guest speaker at a model of the effectiveness of therapy.

Weeks later, he raped, then strangled a two-year old girl. "When convened," he admitted, "I have used by knowledge of psychotherapy as an ongoing game a manipulation."

"Sexual offenders are far better at manipulation and deceit than many therapists can comprehend," says therapist Jensen. "And I admit that I can be fooled by them."

Common-Sense Solutions. Sexual criminals must no longer be allowed to terrorize society with impunity. To control this growing menace, psychiatric experts and law-enforcement officers suggest these measures:

1. Get tough on first offenders. For those who commit violent assaults or sexually abuse children, penalties should be massive from the outset. Too many first-time sex offenders get suspended sentences or probation. “This is a gross perversion of justice and common sense,” argues Chicago’s Captain Cronin. “When first offenders get a slap on the wrist, they think, ‘I’ve beaten the system.’ They get the wrong message from the start.”

Experts warn that therapy should never be a substitute for incarceration. “Every sex offender should do some jail time,” Jensen says. “It gives them a taste of reality.”

2. Get even tougher on repeaters. Jill Otey, a former sex-crimes prosecutor in Portland, Ore., who helps victims with civil suits, says of violent rapists, “After the second offense, such attackers deserve life in prison. Why give them a third chance?”

But though sentences can be undermined by plea bargaining, which is sometimes meant to spare victims further pain. “This puts the rest of us at risk,” Judge Fine says.

Though a judge must make sure that a trial is not overly traumatic to victims, Fine contends that “in my experience, the victim’s worst trauma occurs when the attacker isn’t properly punished.”

In addition, the lunacy of basing parole on a sex criminal’s behavior in prison must end. “Of course the rapist or pedophile is going to behave himself behind bars,” observes Captain Cronin. “No women or children are there to attack.”

3. Tracking them. Whenever sex offenders are freed, their activities must be carefully supervised and monitored.

“Right now, our country has huge gaps in the identification and tracking of convicted sex offenders,” declares Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

David Barry Harrington was convicted of child molesting in Connecticut. While under investigation for a similar crime in Vermont, he disappeared. Then Harrington became principal of a private school in Maryland, where he molested several young boys. A pre-employment background check of Maryland records had revealed none of his out-of-state crimes.

California requires anyone convicted of specified sex crimes to register with the state, and to notify local police whenever they move. The registry helped lead police to serial rapist Warren Bland, for example, and to William Bonin, the infamous “Freeway Killer,” who is currently on death row for 14 sex murders.

“There should be a sex-offender registry in every state, and these should be coordinated through a national network,” says Ernie Allen.

The ultimate price of our leniency toward violent sexual marauders is paid each year by the thousands whose lives are destroyed.

Five-year-old Kenny Claudio of Roslindale, Mass., left his house to play one October afternoon. He never came back. A few days later, police discovered Kenny’s body in a garbage bag. He had been sexually assaulted, then drowned in a bathtub.

They arrested Matthew Rosenberg, 14, who later pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in juvenile court. But the criminal-justice system responded in all-too-familiar ways. The Massachusetts Department of youth Services placed Resenberg in sex-offender therapy, from which he may be released as early as March. A DYS spokeswoman explains, “Every kid should be given a chance.”

“He’s a rapist and a murderer. How many chances does he get?” asks Marilyn Abramofsky, the woman who raised Kenny. “My Kenny is dead. How many more have to die?”

The AP's Origins

On an early morning in May 1848, 10 men representing six New York City newspapers sat around an office table of the New York Sun. They had been in session for more than an hour and all that time they had been in stubborn argument.

At issue was the costly collection of news by telegraphy. The newly invented telegraph made transmission of news possible by wire but at costs so high that the resources of any single paper would be strained.

David Hale of the Journal of Commerce argued that only a joint effort between New York's papers could make telegraphy affordable and effectively prevent telegraph companies from interfering in the newsgathering process. To get news from the west and from abroad, Hale argued, newspapers had to work together if the public was to be served with increasingly wider coverage of the United States and the world.

Although reluctant at first, the six highly competitive papers agreed to the historic plan, and The Associated Press was born.

Today, that six-newspaper cooperative is an organization serving more than 1,500 newspapers and 5,000 broadcast outlets in the United States. Abroad, AP services are printed and broadcast in 112 countries.

Worldwide, the AP serves more than 15,000 news organizations.

Nobody, I think, is missing that it's homosexual men

Don't be so sure my friend. I was just having a lively discussion with an athiest who put up a terribly long story of a Catholic priest in Louisiana who raped boys as a reason why "gawd"(her terminology)should not be in schools. There are plenty of people who lose focus on the fact that pedophiles and homosexuals are infiltrating positions of power and trust to gain access to children EVERYWHERE and focus instead on it being the "evil church". This only goes to show why the Boy Scouts made such a wise decision in remaining unwavering to the sensible standards they have for thier scout leaders.

Thanks Ed interesting article.
From Your article:
We conservatives owe it to all children that we remain vigilant of those forces that, in the name of “tolerance”, are merely fronts for pedophilia. What we are facing is a real direct threat to our kids, and our society as a whole.
It is my opinion conservatives are obliged to take a vanguard role in raising our voices as loudly as possible against this evil that pervades our society.

The battle against evil is one from which none of us can choose to be neutral.
