Boy Scouts of America goes homo despite evidence of homosexuals being more prone to pedophilia

On July 27, 2015, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) National Executive Board voted 45-12 to lift the organization’s ban on openly-homosexual adult leaders and employees. 

Boy Scouts of America goes homo

Two months before, BSA President (and former defense secretary in the Obama and Bush administrations) Robert Gates already had sent a signal. Notwithstanding the Supreme Court’s 2000 ruling in Boy Scouts of America v. Dale that BSA, and all similar private voluntary organizations, have the constitutionally protected right under the First Amendment of freedom of association to set membership standards, Gates nevertheless declared that it was time to end the ban on “gay” leaders because it “cannot be sustained” any longer.

BSA’s lifting of its ban means that homosexual men who are sexually attracted to young boys are now welcome in a national organization of over 2.6 million Scouts, whose activities include campouts where the leaders are in intimate proximity to the boys.

Even before the ban was lifted, there have been countless cases of sexual abuse of Scouts.

According to Stephen Baldwin, in 1993, BSA was ordered to turn over 25,000 pages of documents to the plaintiff — a California family who sued BSA for exposing their son to a Scout leader who had molested him. The documents revealed that thousands of boys had been molested by Scout leaders and other volunteers between 1971 and 1991 resulting in the expulsion of over 1,800 Scout volunteers for pedophilia. Some Scout leaders molested over 40 boys before getting caught. Many, once caught, simply moved to a different Scout troop and continued abusing boys.

Note: Stephen Baldwin is a long time author, researcher, and speaker on homosexual issues, and the executive director of the Council for National Policy in Washington, D.C. Elected to the California State Assembly in 1994, Baldwin chaired the Assembly Education Committee where he fought the homosexual community’s efforts to insert pro-gay curriculum into California’s public schools.

Baldwin’s assertion is corroborated by Minneapolis Post, which reported that on October 19, 2012, forced by another court order, BSA released over 20,000 pages of documentation on 1,200 reported child sexual abuse cases within the organization in 20 years, from 1965 to 1985.

The latest BSA sex abuse lawsuit was filed by a man, John Doe 153, who accuses BSA for failing to protect him decades ago against a former St. Paul adult scout leader, Leland “Lee” Opalinski. The lawsuit claims that Opalinski repeatedly had “sexual contact … [and] penetration” with JD153 when he was 12 to 16 years old. Opalinski has been named in three other civil suits against BSA.

Baldwin, in his report “Child Molestation and the Homosexual Movement” published in v. 14 of the Regent University Law Review, provides extensive and compelling evidence of homosexual men’s propensity to pedophilia:

1. Research on the homosexual “lifestyle” confirms it is almost exclusively a youth oriented culture. Very few gays exhibit a preference for older men. Some admit to a focus on teenage boys, some on prepubescent boys, and many cross over between categories.

2. Scientific studies found that homosexuals molest children, especially male children, at a rate vastly higher than heterosexuals:

  • Homosexuals account for between 25% and 40% of all child molestation, according to psychologist Paul Cameron, founder of Family Research Institute, in a 1985 Psychological Reports article, after reviewing more than 19 different academic reports and peer-reviewed studies.
  • Homosexuals account for 86% of all male child molestation, according to Erickson, Walbek, Sely, in a 1988 Archives of Sexual Behavior article.
  • Since homosexuals account for only 2% of the population, this means that a child molester is 10 to 20 times more likely to be homosexual than heterosexual. This is confirmed by an article by 7 sex researchers in the Archives of Sexual Behavior in 2000, which concluded that “around 25-40% of men attracted to children prefer boys. Thus the rate of homosexual attraction is 6-20 times higher among pedophiles.” In a 1992 study published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy, sex researchers K. Freud and R. I. Watson found that homosexual males are three times more likely than straight men to engage in pedophilia and that the average pedophile victimizes between 20 and 150 boys before being arrested.
  • A survey conducted by homosexual activists and researchers Jay and Young found that 73% of  homosexuals had had sex with boys 16 to 19 years of age or younger.
  • Most pedophiles are homosexual. In a 1988 study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, 86% of pedophiles described themselves as homosexual or bisexual.

3. Given homosexual men’s propensity toward pedophilia, it is no surprise that mainstream homosexual culture promotes sex with children:

  • Homosexuals are driving the worldwide campaign to lower the legal age of consent.
  • Homosexual publications claim sex with children is not harmful to children but, as stated in one journal, “constitute an aspect of gay and lesbian life.” Some examples:
    • The Journal of Homosexuality, the premier academic journal of the mainstream homosexual world, published a special double issue entitled, Male Intergenerational Intimacy, containing dozens of articles portraying sex between men and minor boys as loving relationships. One article states that parents should view the pedophile who loves their son “not as a rival or competitor, not as a theft of their property, but as a partner in the boy’s upbringing, someone to be welcomed into their home.”
    • BLK, a leading black homosexual publication, defended pedophilia with an article entitled, “Must Men Who Love Boys Be Guilty of Sexual Misconduct?”
    • San Francisco’s leading homosexual newspaper, The Sentinel, editorialized that “The love between man and boys is at the foundation of homosexuality.”
    • In 1995, the homosexual magazine Guide stated: “We can be proud that the gay movement has been home to the few voices who have had the courage to say out loud that children are naturally sexual, that they deserve the right to sexual expression with whoever they choose …[w]e must listen to our prophets. Instead of fearing being labeled pedophiles, we must proudly proclaim that sex is good, including children’s sexuality …. We must do it for the children’s sake.”

4. Other indicators of homosexual men’s interest in sex with children:

  • A 1995 content analysis, by Dr. Judith Reisman of the Institute for Media Education, of advertisements in the U.S.’s most influential homosexual newspaper, The Advocate, found many personal ads soliciting boy prostitutes. The newspaper also advertises a “Penetrable Boy Doll… available in 3 provocative positions.”
  • NAMBLA and other pro-pedophile literature can be found wherever homosexuals congregate (homosexual bookstores, bathhouses, festivals, gay bars, etc.).
  • Mainstream homosexual conferences commonly feature speeches about “intergenerational sex.” For example, the 2001 annual National Gay Lesbian Task Force Convention featured workshops entitled “Your Eyes Say Yes But the Law Says No” and “Drag 101: How to Turn Kids in Make-up into Kings and Queens.”
  • Homosexual newspapers and travel publications carry ads for sex tours to Burma, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and other countries infamous for boy prostitution. Published exposés on such tours by former homosexuals reveal that thousands of American gay men are patronizing boy prostitutes around the world.
  • Thousands of homosexual sites on the Internet promote sex with young boys and/or contain child pornography. In fact, mainstream homosexual groups filed suit to block a Virginia law, passed in 2001, that restricted Internet use harmful to children, such as chat rooms commonly used by pedophiles.

5. All of which is why homosexuals are driving the worldwide movement to lower the age of (sexual) consent:

  • As far back as 1972, the mainstream National Coalition of Gay Organizations adopted a ‘gay rights platform’ that included a demand to ‘repeal all laws governing the age of sexual consent.’
  • Homosexual activists within the United Nations are lobbying to give sexual rights to underage children.
  • In England, the campaign is being led by Outrage! and Stonewall, both homosexual organizations.
  • The Dutch homosexual group, Association for the Integration of Homosexuality, has succeeded in lowering the age of legal sex to 12 (!) in Holland.

Baldwin observes that we are seeing the results of homosexuals’ success in transforming U.S. culture:

  • Sharp increase in the number of boy prostitutes who identify themselves as homosexuals, from 10% to 60% in just 15 years, according to child prostitution expert Dr. Jennifer James.
  • Young males getting AIDS: The Journal of the American Medical Association reported that 50% of male AIDS victims reported having sex with an adult male by the age of 16, and 20% had sex with an adult male by the age of 10. The Center of Disease Control (CDC) reported that in 2000, there were 31,293 AIDS cases in the 13-24-age category, and that half of the 13-24 age group HIV victims were infected with the disease as a result of sex with adult men.

Baldwin warns:

“It is time to acknowledge that homosexual behavior threatens the foundation of Western civilization — the nuclear family. An unmistakable manifestation of the attack on the family unit is the homosexual community’s efforts to target children both for their own sexual pleasure and to enlarge the homosexual movement….

The homosexual community knows that the capture of all major youth groups is absolutely necessary to the expansion of its movement.They know what most social scientists and sex researchers know but refuse to talk about: homosexually-molested children are likely to become homosexual. After all, one of the most ommon characteristics of homosexual molesters is the fact that they were molested themselves during boyhood. An article published by the American Medical Association reported that, “Abused adolescents, particularly those victimized by males, were up to 7 times more likely to self-identity as gay or bisexual than peers who had not been abused.

Baldwin concludes:

“It is high time that America’s elected officials, health authorities,education leaders, and law enforcement officials act to not only tell the harsh truth — the homosexual community has targeted America’s youth — but act now to counter this horrible trend. Failure to do so will have disastrous consequences for both our culture and for the health of our children.”

Stephen Baldwin wrote that report in 2002. Since then, things have only gotten worse: Senate Bill 48 became law in California, requiring public schools to include in their academic curriculum “the contributions” of gays and lesbians; and now, Boy Scouts of America lifted its ban on homosexual adult leaders and employees.

The Devil is transgender

About 5 months ago, I asked in a post when and how transgenders became all the rage in America:

Something is going on to which the American people are not privy.

Every evidence we have is that those who identify themselves as LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) comprise no more than 5% of the U.S. population.…which means transgenders must be less than 1% of the U.S. population. And yet, if we go by the pervasive news about transgenders and the relentless drumbeat for “transgender rights” by every institution of the Left — by the media, pop culture, academia, and the Obama administration — you would think every other person you meet is a transgender….

The simple truth is that a person’s sex or gender is determined by our DNA, specifically, chromosomes: females have XX chromosomes; males have XY chromosomes. That means no amount of surgical mutilation and hormone “therapy” can actually transform a man into a woman by creating an ovary, uterus or milk-producing breasts; nor can surgery transform a woman into a man by creating sperm, testicles, and a real penis. Those are determined by birth — by our chromosomal DNA. (See “A transsexual regrets his ‘gender-reassignment’ surgery“)

That is why psychiatrist Joseph Berger, M.D. says from a medical and scientific perspective, there is no such thing as a transgendered person.

Paul R. McHugh, M.D., former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, agrees. According to Dr. McHugh, “transgenders” are people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically, much like other body dysmorphic disorders, such as anorexia. The difference, of course, is that body parts like penises, testicles, and breasts are not amputated in an effort to “cure” other assumption disorders.

And yet a year ago, Time magazine’s cover of June 9, 2014 proclaimed that we’re at a “Transgender Tipping Point: America’s Next Civil Rights Frontier.”

Time transgender cover

With the benefit of hindsight, we now know Time was exactly right about the tipping point. In the span of a mere year, U.S. media and pop culture have not just succumbed but fully embraced the scientifically-fictitious transgenderism:

  • Bruce Jenner, who got breast implants but still has male chromosomes and genitalia, is now referred to by the feminine pronouns “she” and “her”.
  • The Pentagon will begin admitting “transgenders” into the military and taxpayers will pay for their gender-reassignment body mutilation surgery.
  • Applicants to the formerly serious institutions of higher learning, the University of California system, are asked to choose among six (!) genders.

We are in Alice’s Through-the-Looking-Glass land where up is down, and down is up, and sane people find themselves in a country gone stark raving mad.

I’ve puzzled about this, especially the dizzying speed of the change in American culture and attitudes. Then came that proverbial light bulb of illumination.

In a July 27, 2015 essay in Patheos, Fr. Dwight Longenecker draws our attention to the Baphomet, a well-known pictorial representation of the devil as androgynous, both male and female, or in today’s parlance, a transgender.

Baphomet

Fr. Longenecker describes the Baphomet:

Rising from his lap is the pagan Caduceus–the rod with two serpents entwined that the pagan god Mercury carries. According to Satanic lore, this is a phallic symbol with the earth powers of the serpent intertwined.

The winged goat headed figure not only has male genitalia, but breasts.

Furthermore, when you look closely you’ll see that the beast has two arms–one male and one female.

On the arms are the Latin words “Solve” and “Coagula”. These mean “Separate” and “Come Together”. These are occult words for the task of the alchemist who takes what is integrated and natural–breaks it and then puts it back together in a new (and perverted) way.

This is precisely what Satan is doing at this time with human sexuality. Through feminism, homosexualism, trans genderism, gender confusion and “identifying” as whatever gender a person wants, the distinctions between male and female are being broken and put back together however it is desired.

The celebration of “Caitlyn” Jenner–indeed the enforced celebration and constant publicity about this “transitioning” is a visual illustration of what is going on.

I will say what Fr. Longenecker hints at and implies: Satanism explains America’s rapid acceptance of transgenders. Indeed, Christ called the Devil “the father of all lies”, and we have been warned by St. Paul (2 Timothy 3:1-4, 12-13):

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God . . . and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”

Detroit goes to the devil

Detroit is the most populous city in Michigan — the Detroit metropolitan region holds roughly one-half of the state’s population. According to the 2010 census, 82.7% of Detroit’s population are Black.

With a murder rate of 43.4 per 100,000 in 2014, Detroit has the highest murder rate of any U.S. city, accounting for nearly two-thirds of all murders in the state of Michigan in 2011.

On July 18, 2013, the city filed for bankruptcy — the largest municipal bankruptcy case in U.S. history. Less than 5 months later on Dec. 3, 2013, citing Detroit’s $18.5 billion debt, Judge Steven W. Rhodes of the Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Michigan declared the city to be bankrupt.

One sign of Detroit’s decrepitude are the 80,000 decaying vacant buildings that the bankrupt city can’t afford to tear down. The larger buildings can cost more than $10,000 each to demolish.

As if the city doesn’t have enough problems already, on July 25, 2015, Detroit welcomed the installation of a 9 ft. statue of the devil.

Detroit satan statue

As reported by ABC News, the “largest public satanic ceremony in history” took place Saturday in Detroit when the Boston-based Satanic Temple organization unveiled a nearly 9-foot tall bronze statue of a goat-headed Baphomet in a private ceremony attended by 600 ticket holders.

Tickets for the event were $25 each and the location was revealed only to ticket-holders.

The event served “as a call-to-arms from which we’ll kick off our largest fight to date in the name of individual rights to free exercise against self-serving theocrats,” according to the invitation.

The statue was originally planned to sit at the Oklahoma state capitol, but the state’s supreme court banned all religious displays there, including the Ten Commandments. The statue was created through $28,180 fund-raised by 1,041 people on Indiegogo.com last year.

Detroit has the largest and oldest chapter of the Satanic Temple.

Lucien Greaves, co-founder of the national Satanic Temple organization, said the Detroit chapter has more than 200 registered members. Graves credits the Detroit chapter’s founder Jex Blackmore with the growth of the chapter since it was established there in August 2014.

Greaves said there are 20 Satanic Temple chapters across the country with about 20,000 members as a whole.

The Satanic Temple now plans to erect a Baphomet statue outside Arkansas’ statehouse, where a Ten Commandments monument also is planned.

Meanwhile, on the same day of the satanic unveiling, several hundred Christians protested by attending a Mass at Detroit’s St. Joseph Catholic Church. (AP)

Companies that fund Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby body parts

On July 14, 2015, the Center for Medical Progress, headed by a valiant Christian named David Daleiden, released a shocking undercover video showing Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood (PP) sells the body parts of aborted unborn children (like fetal livers) and has its physicians do unlawful partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts. See “Planned Parenthood sells body parts of aborted human babies”.

Days later, a second sting video was released, showing another PP senior official, Dr. Mary Gatter, haggling over how much she would charge for the aborted baby body parts. See “Second Planned Parenthood sting video: use “less crunchy” abortion method to get intact body parts for sale” and also “Human baby body parts and tissue for sale“.

Here are 38 companies that have directly funded Planned Parenthood (source: The Daily Signal). Since abortion accounts for 94% of Planned Parenthood’s for-profit business, this means the following ghoulish companies are directly funding the murder of innocent and defenseless human beings, as well as the sale of their body parts and organs:

  1. Adobe
  2. American Cancer Society
  3. American Express
  4. AT&T
  5. Avon
  6. Bank of America
  7. Bath & Body Works
  8. Ben & Jerry’s
  9. Clorox
  10. Converse
  11. Deutsche Bank
  12. Dockers
  13. Energizer
  14. Expedia
  15. ExxonMobil
  16. Fannie Mae
  17. Groupon
  18. Intuit
  19. Johnson & Johnson
  20. La Senza
  21. Levi Strauss
  22. Liberty Mutual
  23. Macy’s
  24. March of Dimes
  25. Microsoft
  26. Morgan Stanley
  27. Nike
  28. Oracle
  29. PepsiCo
  30. Pfizer
  31. Progressive (auto insurance)
  32. Starbucks
  33. Susan G. Komen
  34. Tostitos
  35. Unilever
  36. United Way
  37. Verizon
  38. Wells Fargo

The Daily Signal (TDS) originally listed 41 companies — a list obtained from Planned Parenthood’s website. After TDS first published the list, three companies — Xerox, Ford Motor Co., Coca-Cola — contacted TDS to say their inclusion on PP’s list was erroneous. They asked PP to remove them from its list. PP’s response was to delete the entire list from their website.

Below are some reaction to the two undercover videos.

1. The Good Guys:

2. The Bad Guys:

The following politicians and organizations are defending PP:

  • The Obama administration not only says the selling of aborted babies’ body parts is “ethical,” spokesman Josh Ernest said that Obama, who says he’s a Christian, will not defund Planned Parenthood. That means the evil POS is forcing you, me, and every taxpayer to fund this ghoulish practice, against our conscience.
  • Wannabe-president Hillary Clinton, who calls herself a Christian, on July 23, 2016, defended the Planned Parenthood abortion business, saying PP offers “important services.” Hillary also defended late-term or partial-birth abortions, which is illegal. (H/t FOTM’s MomOfIV)
  • House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, who calls herself a Catholic Christian, instead of demanding an investigation of PP, wants the Obama administration to investigate the Center for Medical Progress who made the undercover videos.
  • Minnesota governor Mark Dayton refuses to investigate PP.
  • The New York Times also defends PP’s sale of aborted baby parts.
  •  A Rasmussen poll found that 25% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the sale of body organs from aborted babies for use in medical research. 54% oppose, and 22% are undecided. 43% favor the use of fetal tissue in medical research; 34% are opposed; 23% are not sure.

Sunday Devotional: The Long Defeat

2 Timothy 3:1-13

But know this,
that in the last days perilous times will come:
For men will be lovers of themselves,
lovers of money, boasters, proud,
blasphemers, disobedient to parents,

unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving,
slanderers, without self-control, brutal,

despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty,
lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
having a form of godliness but denying its power….
Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses,
so do these also resist the truth:
men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith;
but they will progress no further,
for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.
But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life,
purpose, faith, longsuffering,
love, perseverance, persecutions, afflictions,
which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra –
what persecutions I endured.
And out of them all the Lord delivered me.
Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus
will suffer persecution.
But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse,
deceiving and being deceived.

How these words of St. Paul, written some 2,000 years ago, resonate in our times of ever-worsening corruption and depravity.

Six years ago, would we ever have imagined that we would live in a time when innocent human beings are not just slaughtered, but their body parts sold for profit. Would we ever have imagined that politicians (Obama, Hillary Clinton) would defend the sale as “ethical”? Would we….

The list is endless.

St. Paul’s words, no doubt, had inspired J. R. R. Tolkien’s mournful expression, “the long defeat”.

Tolkien wrote in The Fellowship of the Ring, speaking as Elven queen Galadriel, referring to her husband Celeborn:

“He has dwelt in the West since the days of dawn, and I have dwelt with him years uncounted . . . and together through ages of the world we have fought the long defeat.”

In a letter, Tolkien explained:

Actually I am a Christian, and indeed a Roman Catholic, so that I do not expect ‘history’ to be anything but a ‘long defeat’— though it contains (and in legend may contain more clearly and movingly) some samples or glimpses of final victory. (Letters 255).

Tolkien’s “long defeat” should be understood as a doleful commentary on humanity as a collective, and “defeat” in the sense of countless men and women being obdurately evil, and so are lost to Christ’s salvific self-sacrifice on the cross.

The long defeat.

What an apt characterization of the times we live in and our seemingly fruitless struggle against the ever-rising darkness of the human soul.

Fr. Stephen Freeman, priest of the Orthdox Church in America and rector of St. Anne Orthodox Church in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, observes:

History as a long defeat – I can think of nothing that is more anti-modern than this sentiment expressed by J.R.R. Tolkien. It is a thought perfectly in line with the fathers and the whole of Classical Christian teaching. And it’s anti-modernism reveals much about the dominant heresy of our time.
We believe in progress – it is written into the DNA of the modern world. If things are bad, they’ll get better. . . . But Tolkien’s sentiment bears deeper examination. For not only does it reject the notion of progress, it embraces a narrative of the “long defeat.” . . . If history tells us anything, it is that this is a very honest, even prescient reading.

But Fr. Freeman reminds us:

But the Classical Christian read on human life contains the deepest hope – set precisely in the heart of the long defeat. . . . Tolkien notes that within the long defeat, there are “glimpses of final victory.” I would go further and say that the final victory already “tabernacles” among us. It hovers within and over our world, shaping it and forming it, even within its defeat . . . an End that was always foreseen and present within the Cross itself. And the Cross itself was present “from before the foundation of the world.”

I will be with you always

May the courage of St. Paul, and the peace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!

Jeremaiah the Conspiracy Buster

idolatryThey had the Patriarchs, they had Moses, they had the Law, the had the Psalms and Proverbs, they had the Prophets, they had Temple, they had the Priesthood, they had their great Kings and their armies.

But hidden from sight they sought to please demons.

The parallels should chill any American to the core.

Then the Lord said to me, “There is a conspiracy among the people of Judah and those who live in Jerusalem.

They have returned to the sins of their ancestors, who refused to listen to my words. They have followed other gods to serve them. Both Israel and Judah have broken the covenant I made with their ancestors.

Therefore this is what the Lord says: ‘I will bring on them a disaster they cannot escape. Although they cry out to me, I will not listen to them.

The towns of Judah and the people of Jerusalem will go and cry out to the gods to whom they burn incense, but they will not help them at all when disaster strikes.

You, Judah, have as many gods as you have towns; and the altars you have set up to burn incense to that shameful god Baal are as many as the streets of Jerusalem.’

“Do not pray for this people or offer any plea or petition for them, because I will not listen when they call to me in the time of their distress.”

– Jeremaiah 11:9-14
