From a thread at The American Conservative – Rod Dreher
Bobby says: “It’s my understanding that FRC is identified in that way because they have allegedly engaged in spreading false propaganda against gay people (e.g., falsely suggesting a causal connection between homosexuality and pedophilia).”
“We believe the evidence shows … that relative to the size of their population, homosexual men are more likely to engage in child sexual abuse than are heterosexual men.”
— Peter Sprigg, “Debating Homosexuality: Understanding Two Views.” 2011.
This is not hatred.
If you found that men are more likely to engage in child sexual abuse than women, it wouldn’t mean that you <i>hate</i> men. Just as if you found that heterosexual men are more likely to engage in child sexual abuse than homosexual men, it wouldn’t mean you <i>hate</i> heterosexuals. The FRC’s assertions cannot be characterized as hatred simply because they point out problems in the behavior of LGBT people.
Liberals believe in a dogma that says “homosexuals are just like heterosexuals In Every Way.” Any time anyone points out there is any kind of discrepancy, liberals have a meltdown because their narrative is challenged. Reality is irrelevant.
FRC: Since homosexual conduct is associated with higher rates of
sexual promiscuity, (don’t know generally, but certainly true for sub-groups)
sexually transmitted diseases, (CONFIRMED FOR HIV AND SYPHILIS – MALES)
mental illness, (?)
substance abuse, (?)
and domestic violence, (CONFIRMED)
This isn’t hatred. It’s reality, a reality that liberals don’t like to face, so they shoot the messenger.
FRC’S SPRIGG: [Parents of Boy Scouts] have a right to protect their children from the potential risk of child sexual abuse at the hands of men who might be attracted to other males.
CNN’S COSTELLO: Well, I’ll just say that the American Psychological Association has studied the issue you just mentioned: “Homosexuals are not any more likely to molest kids than straight men.” Unless you’re condemning every single homosexual in the country as being a possible pedophile, that’s not fair.
The problem is heterosexual men do a lot of abuse and molestation. “Not more likely” still means a serious molestation and abuse problem. That’s a considerable number of homosexuals and bisexuals abusing and exploiting adolescents – and certainly boys.
This is what liberals will not face.
(Not to digress too much, but since when is the APA a credible research organization regarding homosexuality?)
