Should Gays Adopt? - by Bob Enyart
Michael Galluccio, the homosexual featured on ABC’s Good Morning America, Larry King Live and in USA Today, whom the ACLU helped to adopt a child, is my first cousin. He won this battle but I will not give up. Michael’s homosexuality has brought much heartache to our family. Now, we will grieve anew because we know this ruling will further the destructive influence that homosexuals have on children.
Billions of people in the world oppose homosexuals, as have most cultures throughout civilization. Why? Is it because everyone of those billions is bigoted and narrow-minded? I respect and value racial minorities, even though I am in the American majority. I have learned to honor women, even though my society degrades them. I have long sought out the elderly for friendship and to serve them, though a fraction of their age.
And I welcome disabled men and women to my office each week, because I love them.
So why would I disrespect homosexuals? It is not because they are different but because they are wrong. Liberals fight for personal freedom by knocking down the first moral barrier that restrains them. Once down, they find another restriction that must be thrown off. Hence the notion of the slippery slope as men become more determined to rid themselves of any imposed standards. This process has yielded a nation of sexually obsessed, dysfunctional people living in the world’s violent crime capitol.
Examine the record of those who defend homosexual adoption of children. Jim Joy, the executive director of Colorado’s ACLU, admitted to me during a PBS station’s televised debate that the written national policy of the ACLU defends the right to distribute child pornography. As with many leading voices, the ACLU’s opposition of child abuse is hypocrisy. Every such video sold of a thirteen-year-old sexually exploits the child again. So the ACLU, known to tolerate child abuse, sells children out again by advocating their adoption by homosexuals.
Homosexual leaders blatantly voice tolerance for child sex abuse. A prominent gay magazine, Out, quoted Damien Martin, the head of New York’s homosexual Harvey Milk High School, as saying, “No kid has ever been hurt by [oral sex]” in September, 1994 on page 73. The leading gay publication, The Advocate, in an article titled Getting Over It pondered on May 5, 1992 about how many boys “would have missed out on a valuable, liberating experience—one that initiated them into their sexuality—if it weren’t for so-called molestation?”
The July 1998 Psychological Bulletin of the American Psychological Association worked to normalize pedophilia by undermining the “Assumed Properties of Child Sexual Abuse.”
Time magazine also lacks zero tolerance for homosexual child abusers. They quoted the ACLU in defense of an aggressive advocate of pedophilia. NAMBLA, the North American Man-Boy Love Association exists to promote homosexual sex with young boys. Leading gay-pride organizers in New York and San Francisco allowed NAMBLA to march undisguised in their parades repeatedly during the last two decades. A Time article grotesquely titled For the Love of Kids in November, 1993 quoted the ACLU defending a New York City teacher, Peter Melzer who edits the NAMBLA journal. Melzer published an article In Praise of the Penises, on “how to make that special boy feel good.” As to the police report on Melzer’s alleged sex with a Filipino boy, Time assured its readers, there is no hard evidence that he abused this “or any other boy in the U.S.” In the U.S.?
The media defends homosexuals who want to adopt children, but it also supports homosexuals who openly advocate sex with kids. The national media warmly eulogized Alan Ginsburg this past spring conveniently ignoring this homosexual poet’s public endorsement of NAMBLA. Where I now live, a convicted pedophile, who says today he controls his longings, is running for Denver School Board with the support of many in the homosexual community.
Long-time gay activist David Thorstad, founding member of the Coalition for Lesbian and Gay Rights and former president of the New York Gay Activists Alliance loudly protested when in 1993 the March on Washington organizers broke with tradition and excluded pedophiles like NAMBLA. With all the attention, they feared the media would expose the homosexual acceptance of pedophilia. Talk about paranoia.
The nation’s largest gay publicist, Alyson Publications of Boston, which distributes Daddy’s Roommate and other homosexual books for kids, published Paedophilia: The Radical Case, hundreds of pages of why and how seven year old boys should be brought to climax. Another Alyson book, The Age Taboo on page 144 insists: “Boy-lovers... are not child molesters. The child abusers are... parents who force their staid morality onto the young people in their custody.”
A Florida judge recently ruled unconstitutional their age-of-consent law, following northern European nations in lowering the age at which dirty old men can legally set their sights on boys. Liberal ideas have taken their expected course with lawyers arguing that since adolescents have the right over their own bodies regardless of what parents or legislators think, then they can elect sex whenever and with whomever they choose, with age discrimination ultimately unenforceable.
America’s newspapers are their silent partners. Those who are soft on child sex, or even those boldly endorsing it, have nothing to fear from the mainstream media. Partly because of the media’s silence, the Clinton administration voted to give ILGA, the International Lesbian and Gay Association consulting status at the United Nations even though NAMBLA was a full and active member of that organization, even appearing on its letterhead. Imagine, professed pedophiles advising on international child law. NAMBLA remained at the UN until the outcry of the religious right ousted them.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Thus the broadly overlapping groups, the homosexual community and the open pedophiles, are longtime allies. Both groups work to break down previously unquestioned sexual standards. The national Gay Rights Platform of 1972 called for the repeal of all age-of-consent laws. Gay activist Andy Humm bragged of his influence over the New York City Council in the New York Native, August, 1983 and wrote that, “No one should be denied basic civil rights because of his or her orientation, whether the person be homosexual, heterosexual, transsexual, transvestite, pedophile, sadist, masochist, asexual—whatever one can imagine.”
I am not saying that my cousin will sexually molest a child. I am saying that homosexuals have long given aid and comfort to pedophiles, publicly. And I am saying that the media and other defenders of homosexuals are the silent partners of those who work toward the day when children are a sex commodity. The media rejects but intuitively fears the connection between child molestation and homosexuality. It therefore suppresses reports of the torrent of public advocacy for gay pedophilia. Instead, the media wears out the same worn cliché that homosexuals are no more likely to molest children than heterosexuals.
On homosexual initiation, sex researchers Masters and Johnson wrote in Human Sexual Inadequacy that “Recruitment usually was accomplished by an older male, frequently in his twenties, but occasionally men in their thirties were the initiators… the teenager was left with the concept that whether or not he continued as an active homosexual, he would always be homophile-oriented.” Homosexuals do reproduce sexually, by molesting children. According to a 1994 Out article titled “The Men From the Boys,” the director of a home for runaway youth admits that between 14 and 16 years of age, he “probably had sex with well over a thousand people, most of them much older than myself.” This boy hardly met a homosexual adult who would not have sex with him.
Of Canadians imprisoned for pedophilia, a 1991 report reveals that 91 percent of molesters of non-familial boys admitted to no lifetime sexual contact other than homosexual according to Volume 6, page 323 of the Journal of Interpersonal Violence. In America, about one third of the children sexually molested are boys, and about ninety percent of them are hurt by men. The refereed scientific journal, Psychological Reports in 1986 presented research in Volume 58 starting on page 327 showing that homosexuals commit a far greater percentage of child sex crimes than demographics alone account for.
Every man molesting a boy is committing a homosexual act. Young boys do not excite straight men. To let a homosexual make the point in his own words, the San Francisco Sentinel published a letter on March 26, 1992 headlined, “No Place for Homo-Homophobia” with the common admission that, “The love between men and boys is at the foundation of homosexuality. For the gay community to imply that boy-love is not homosexual love is ridiculous.” Activist pedophiles easily find media outlets.
Families have tried to hide their shame when one of their own gives in to vile passions. Many homosexuals claim to have their parent’s complete acceptance, but almost without exception gays show no physical affection, not even a peck on the cheek, in front of parents and grand-parents. Many are in denial but they fail to hide the truth.
Traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs reflect the Bible’s condemnation of homosexuals. Over a billion mothers in the world, in giving birth, did not wish for their children to be homosexuals. Over a billion mothers cannot be wrong. Human beings have a natural revlusion to contaminates. Hence even the thought of ingesting putrefied meat makes one gag, as does the sight of two gay men kissing. We are born with natural defense mechanisms. Homophobes are born that way. Homophobia is genetic. And no one has a right to suppress us. We are not going back into the closet.
Homosexuality is a crime in a dwindling number of American states. Yet in an effort to normalize it, Hollywood ridicules the traditional family. Why mock a family unit of a mom, dad and kids? Because perversion is self-evident next to wholesomeness. Men will accept depravity if first they scorn goodness. So liberals laud every permutation of the family except for the traditional one. They deride Ozzie and Harriet, scorn the Beaver’s parents and fight tooth and nail against the notion that any such family ever existed. Why the dread of normality? Because if it exists, the homosexual life fails by comparison. Out of concern for children, and for my nation, and out of a desire that my cousin experience justice, I will continue to fight to re-criminalize homosexuality.
