We Agree with FRC: Homosexuals Want Your Children

Public Advocate agrees with what the Family Research Council reports today: (quoting directly) Democrats seeking to exploit the resignation of Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL) are right to criticize the slow response of Republican congressional leaders to his communications with male pages.

But neither party seems likely to address the real issue, which is the link between homosexuality and child sexual abuse. Foley..... had always refused to answer questions about his sexual orientation... it appears clear that Foley is a homosexual with a particular attraction to underage boys.

While pro-homosexual activists like to claim that pedophilia is a completely distinct orientation from homosexuality, evidence shows a disproportionate overlap between the two. Although almost all child molesters are male and less than 3% of men are homosexual, about a third of all child sex abuse cases involve men molesting boys--and in one study, 86% of such men identified themselves as homosexual or bisexual.

Ignoring this reality got the Catholic Church into trouble over abusive priests, and now it is doing the same to the House GOP leadership. They discounted or downplayed earlier reports concerning Foley's behavior--probably because they did not want to appear "homophobic." The Foley scandal shows what happens when political correctness is put ahead of protecting children. (unquote) We hope more Americans and groups in Washington come to this position. We will work towards that end.
