    During the same month that U. S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy was issuing his opinion that the Defense of Marriage Act “humiliated tens of thousands of children now being raised by same-sex couples,” Russia’s House of Parliament voted unanimously to ban the adoption of Russian children by same-sex couples from abroad. The House also voted to forbid single people who are citizens or permanent residents of countries that allow same sex marriage to become adoptive parents or legal guardians of Russian children.Children’s rights ombudsman Pavel Astakhov vowed to do everything possible to “ensure that Russian orphans are only adopted...
  • Homosexuals in Boy Scouts a Bad Idea

    Do those who want the Boy Scouts to allow openly homosexual boys to participate understand why it's the Boy Scouts rather than the Boy and Girl Scouts? Do they think boys and girls should share tents on camp outs? Male homosexuals claim they look at other males the way males look at females. If that is true than they sometimes look at other males as potential sexual conquests. They sometimes invade the sexual privacy of other males by imaging sexual contact with them. I don't know if the claim is true or not. I only know that scientific research indicates...

    A text-message relationship between a Stranahan High band director and a female student evolved into make-out sessions during school hours and marijuana-fueled sexual trysts at his Hollywood home, according to a police report. Martin Anthony Brown, 33, is accused of taking the then-17-year-old girl to his Oak Garden Lane home, where they smoked marijuana and engaged in oral sex and intercourse. The report also says he pulled the girl from class during school hours so that they could make out in his classroom office.

    Todd Bridges and Corey Feldman, both of whom were molested by men with Hollywood connections, support legislation to require fingerprinting and background checks for those with unsupervised access to child performers. Three decades ago, they were teen idols. Todd Bridges played Willis on the popular sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes." Corey Feldman starred in "Gremlins,""The Goonies" and "The Lost Boys." The two men held the same dark secret: Each had been molested in his adolescence by men with Hollywood connections, experiences that would lead to downward spirals and years of drug addiction. Today, they are making a highly public case for California...

    Senator David Norris claimed in public that his greatest childhood desire was to be sexually molested, according to minutes of a gay rights meeting he addressed in the Seventies. The minutes, which are stored in the National Library, say that Mr Norris made the claim in front of some 200 delegates at the conference of the Union for Sexual Freedom in Ireland. Mr Norris, who wasn’t a senator at the time, also suggested that because he had not in fact been molested, it showed that there were very few paedophiles in Ireland. The typewritten minutes show that Mr Norris was...

    A San Jose man is facing a maximum of life in prison for something many fathers would be tempted to do -- badly beating a Thanksgiving weekend houseguest who molested his 8-year-old stepdaughter. Surely the suspected molester, who has confessed to the sexual attack and even apologized to the child, is in worse trouble than the stepfather? Actually, the stepfather is facing the possibility of spending more time behind bars -- perhaps his entire life. The stiff penalty the stepfather faces for his allegedly violent reaction to what many would consider extreme provocation has lawyers debating whether he deserves leniency....

    New state legislation that seeks to ensure the accomplishments of gays are accurately reflected in California’s classrooms is causing fresh controversy here in Alameda, where the school district’s efforts to put anti-gay bullying lessons in place at elementary schools pitted local religious conservatives against gay-led families and their allies.

Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, that would...

Crisp joined the Dallas Diocese in the 1970s and has been assigned to several parishes, including Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Garland and St. Pius X Catholic Church in northeast...

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP)--A social researcher who has studied sexual behavior for 24 years believes the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has sound reasons for maintaining its prohibition against gay scoutmasters. A homosexual cannot automatically be considered a child molester, said Judith Reisman, president of the Institute for Media Education in suburban Louisville, Ky. But with 17-24 percent of boys being abused by age 18, nearly as many as the 25 percent of girls, there is cause for concern, she said. Since heterosexuals outnumber the homosexual population about 44 to 1, as a group the incidence of homosexuals molesting children is...

Why would they take care of us when we are old and decrepit if we didn't take care of them? The biggest failure of society to protect our children is to allow sexual predators to go free with little to no punishment. I have lost all faith in judges to adequately punish child predators. Many have said that judges refuse to punish these predators because the judges themselves are predators. Perhaps these people are right. Maybe NAMBLA...

In the Tehuacán area, there were complaints about Father Aguilar. Father Aguilar’s long flight from the law, critics say, reflects the ease with which priests can avoid prosecution in the United States by hiding in Mexico, where judges and prosecutors are reluctant to challenge the enduring...

    With student molestations skyrocketing, lawmakers demand weapon in drug fight WASHINGTON – Even though student molestations seem to be reaching epidemic proportions in schools across America, the House of Representatives has approved a tough new anti-drug and anti-weapon law that would require local districts to develop search policies – including strip searches – with immunity against prosecution for teachers and staff. Schools would have to develop policies for searching students, or face the loss of some federal funding, under the bill – HR 5295, approved by a voice vote Tuesday. It moves to the Senate, which does not have similar...

    SALEM — An admitted pedophile convicted of molesting a 9-year-old boy he had befriended at a Methuen church was sentenced yesterday to the maximum term possible — nine to 10 years in state prison. "He is the classic sexual predator," Salem Superior Court Judge Howard Whitehead said of Kevin Curlew, 44. "He is the true danger to society." Whitehead said the prison term was the only way to protect society. He also ordered Curlew to serve 10 years probation after his release, during which he will be barred from contact with anyone under 16, the victim and his family. He...

Murphy was a popular and charismatic priest in the Archdiocese of Anchorage from the 1960s to 1985. That's when his superiors suddenly ordered him to an alcoholic rehabilitation center...

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Today: February 24, 2004 at 3:45:30 PST Vatican Reinstates Accused Navy Chaplain ASSOCIATED PRESS DETROIT (AP) - The Vatican has reinstated a U.S. Navy chaplain as an active priest after he was placed on administrative leave amid sex abuse allegations, Detroit Roman Catholic leaders said. The Rev. Brian Bjorklund, 64, was suspended last summer over allegations he molested a 17-year-old boy in his early years in the ministry. He was ordained in 1966. Vatican leaders say the alleged contact was not a violation of church law at the time, though it is now. News of Bjorklund's reinstatement comes four...

    Mary Jo Melone, a columnist for the left-wing St. Petersburg Times, says it's impossible to compare Bill Clinton the rapist to Arnold Schwarzenegger the groper because "Clinton's women wanted him." In a hysterical 627-word tantrum denouncing the male and female voters who "elected a serial groper," Melone rages, "Whatever were they thinking?" As the campaign ended, we heard Schwarzenegger compared to the illustrious and sexually industrious Bill Clinton. You know what followed. If Clinton could be forgiven, why not Schwarzenegger? There was a difference, if not in their conduct than in their choices. Clinton's women wanted him. Will Melone...

    The sex, drugs and paedophilia scandal in the heart of the US Catholic Church has brought the Boston archdiocese to the edge of ruin, reports Julian Coman Leo Inzaghi, the manager of the Caffe dello Sport in Boston's Italian district, stopped reading the local newspapers last week.
