On July 27, 2015, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) National Executive Board voted 45-12 to lift the organization’s ban on gay adult leaders and employees.
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.
Although most homosexual activists publicly deny that they want access to boys, many homosexual groups around the world are working aggressively to lower the age of sexual consent. Their cause is being aided by the professional psychiatric and psychological associations, which have moved n recent years toward normalizing pedophilia, much as they did with homosexuality in the early 1970s.
Kevin Bishop, an admitted pederast (pedophile), is promoting the work of the North American /Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) in South Africa. Bishop, who was molested at the age of six, is also an admitted homosexual who is blunt about the relationship between homosexuality and pedophilia. "Scratch the average homosexual and you will find a pedophile," said Bishop in an interview with the Electronic Mail & Guardian (June 30, 1997).1 (1. Angella Johnson, “The man who loves to love boys,” Electronic Mail & Guardian, June 30, 1997, http://www.mg.co.za/mg.)
This pedophile/homosexual activist began studying pedophilia while a student at Rhodes University. He also discovered Karl Marx there, as well as other literature that helped form his worldview. His views are being echoed around the world by homosexual activists who are seeking what they call "sexual freedom" for children.
Bishop is on a crusade in South Africa to have "age of sexual consent laws" abolished, and he is looking for help from NAMBLA to accomplish his goal. He says children must be empowered "by teaching them about loving relationships at an early age, and giving them the opportunity to make an informed decision about having [sex]." He also approves of incest, noting, "Two women psychologists in America say the healthiest introduction to sex for a child should be with their [sic] parents, because it is less threatening and the emotional intimacy more comfortable." 2 (2.Ibid)
Bishop agrees with NAMBLA that the next social movement in Western politics will be an attack m "sexual ageism," which prohibits sexual contact based on age differences. The movement already is well under way in Europe and Canada.
Homosexuals did not need scientific evidence, neither do pedophiles.
The public approval of homosexuality and the idea of homosexuals "marrying" would have been unheard of thirty years ago. But the homosexual campaign's success did not depend on rightness or on scientific evidence - but in its image, and on the increasing permissiveness of society. Dr John Money of John HopKins University has urged pedophiles not to be discouraged by the lack of evidence backing up their cause. He says:
"When the gay rights activists became politically active, there wasn't a sufficient body of scientific information for them to base their gay activism on. So, you don't have to have a basic body of scientific information in order to decide to work actively for a particular ideology. As long as you're prepared to be put in Jail. Isn't that how social change has always taken place?"
This quote comes from the "scholarly" Dutch journal, Paidika -A Journal of pedophilia. ( ) If homosexuality has been posed as healthy, good and normal, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, so can pedophilia. Pro-pedophilic articles are making their way into academia.

PEDOPHILIA IN THE UNITED STATES
In the United States, homosexual activists are more circumspect about their efforts to gain access to children than they are in Canada or Europe. While NAMBLA has regularly marched in homosexual pride parades in New York, San Francisco and other major cities, homosexual activists publicly disassociate themselves from pedophiles as part of a public relations strategy.
Yet homosexual groups are actively recruiting gay youth" through such groups as The Sexual Minority Youth Assistance League, the HettrickMartin Institute, AIDS service providers and various agencies that assist runaways. A concerted effort to change age-of-consent laws has not yet emerged, but some ominous signs portend an eventual effort. When Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was an attorney for the ACLU, she co-authored a report recommending that the age of consent for sexual acts be lowered to 12 years of age." ).3 (3 "Sex Bias in the U.S. Code," Report for the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, April 1977, p. 102, quoted in "Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Feminist World View," The Phyllis Schlafly Report, Vol. 26, No. 12, Section 1, p.3. The paragraph reads as follows: '"Eliminate the phrase "carnal knowledge of any female, not his wife, who has not attained the age of 16 years" and substitute a federal, sex-neutral definition of the offense.... A person is guilty of an offense if he engages in a sexual act with another person.... [and] the other person is, in fact, less than 12 years old..)
The public still has a revulsion against child sexual abuse. In fact, whenever there is an attempt to show a connection between pedophiles and homosexuality, the standard response from the activists is that as many as 97 percent of all pedophiles are heterosexuals and/or married men. Thus, they deflect attention away from their own proclivities to have sex with children.
There is some truth to the claim that many pedophiles are heterosexually oriented men. To be accurate, pedophilia is the crime of sexually molesting a child of the opposite sex. Pederasty, on the other hand, is the crime of molesting a child of the same sex. The term pedophile is used as a general term to describe a person who molests any child, and the term pedophilia, however, is commonly used to refer to child sexual abuse in general. The homosexual who molests a child of the same sex, therefore, technically is guilty of pederasty, rather than pedophilia - yet both are child sexual abuse.
Homosexuals deny that there is a high incidence of child molestation among them, but the statistics tell another story.
First, we need to look at the statistics on child sexual abuse in general. The National Committee to Prevent Child Abuse (NCPCA) has published the following information:
1. Reports of sexual abuse are on the increase in our nation.
2. Between 80 and 95 percent of all child molestation’s are committed by men. The NCPCA notes, however, that there is a "dramatic increase in the number of adolescent offenders who have committed sexually aggressive acts against other children."
3. Girls are more likely to be the victims of molestation than boys. Males account for 25 to 35 percent of child sexual abuse victims.4 (4. "Child Sexual Abuse, "National Committee to Prevent Child Abuse, December 1996, http://www.childabuse.org)
How prevalent is child molestation among homosexuals?
The Gay Report, published by homosexual researchers Jay and Young in 1979, revealed that 73 percent of homosexuals surveyed had at some time had sex with boys 16 to 19 years of age or younger.5 (5. K. Jay and A. Young, The Gay Report (New York: Summit Books, 1979), p. 275. )
Although homosexuals account for less than two percent of the population. they constitute about a third of child molesters.6 (6. K. Freund and R.I. Watson, "The Proportions of Heterosexual and Homosexual Pedophiles Among Sex Offenders Against Children: An Exploratory Study," Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy 18 (Spring 1992): 3443, cited in "The Problem of Pedophilia," op. cit. Also, K. Freund and R.I. Watson, "Pedophilia and Heterosexuality vs. Homosexuality," Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy 10 (Fall 1984): 197, cited in NARTH Fact Sheet. ) Further, as noted by the Encino, Calif.-based National Association for research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH), "since homosexual pedophiles victimize far more children than do heterosexual pedophiles, it is estimated that approximately 80 percent or pedophile victims are boys who have been molested by adultmales.7 (7. Thomas Schmidt, Straight and Narrow? Compassion and Clarity in the Homosexuality Debate (Downers Grove, IU.: Intervarsity Press), p. 114, cited in "The Problem of Pedophilia, op. cit., p. 2. )
A nationwide investigation of child molestation in the Boy Scouts from 1971 to 1991 revealed that more than 2,000 boys reported molestations by adult Scout leaders. (Note: The Scouts, who have 150,000 Scoutmasters and assistant Scoutmasters, ban hundreds of men each year from scouting out of concern that they might abuse boys.)8 (8. Patrick Boyle, Scout's Honor (Rocklin, Calif.: Prima Publishing, 1994), p. 3l6. )
A study of Canadian pedophiles has shown that 30 percent of those studied admitted to having engaged In homosexual acts as adults, and 91 percent of the molesters of non-familial boys admitted to no lifetime sexual contact other than homosexual.9 (9. W. L. Marshall, et al., "Early onset and deviant sexuality in child molesters," Journal of interpersonal Violence 6 (1991): 323-336, cited in "Pedophilia: The Part of Homosexuality They Don't Want You to see," Colorado for Family Values Report, Vol. 14, March 1994. )
Judith A. Reisman, Ph.D., and Charles B. Johnson, Ph.D., conducted a content study of the personal ads in the Advocate, the national gay and lesbian newsmagazine and discovered that "chickens," a common term for underage boys sought for sex, were widely solicited. Many of the advertisements in the magazine solicited boys and teens from within a larger pool of prostitution ads.10 (10. Judith A. Reisman, Ph.D., "A Content Analysis of 'The Advocate,"' unpublished manuscript p. 18, quoted in "Pedophilia: The Part of Homosexuality They Don't WantYou to See," ibid. ) The authors also note a statement from a book review by homosexual activist Larry Kramer that the work, "like much canonized male homosexual literature, involves sexually predatory white men on the prowl for dark-skinned boys to gratify them.11 (11. From "Lany Kramer's Reading List," The Advocate, January 24, 1995, p. 99, cited in "Status Report," The Reisman & Johnson Report of Partner Solicitation Characteristics as a Reflection of More Sexual Orientation and the Threat to Children, First Principles Press, January l995.)
In a 1985 study of the rates of molestation among homosexual pederasts compared to heterosexu1 pedophiles, Dr. Paul Cameron found the following:
153 pederasts had sexually molested 22,981 boys over an average period of 22 years.
224 pedophiles had molested 4,435 girls over an average period of 18 years.
The average pederast molested an average of 150 boys, and each heterosexual pedophile molested an average of 20 girls, a ratio of 7.5 to one. 12 (12. Dr. Paul Cameron, “Homosexual Molestation of Children/Sexual Interaction of Teacher and Pupil,” Psychological Reports 57 (1985): 1227-1236.)
GOING AFTER CHILDREN
Gaining access to children has been a long-term goal of the homosexual movement. In 1972, the National Coalition of Gay Organizations adopted a 'Gay Rights Platform" that included the following demand: "Repeal of all laws governing the age of sexual consent." David Thorstad, a spokesman for the homosexual rights movement and NAMBLA, clearly states the objectives: 'The ultimate goal of the gay liberation movement is the achievement of sexual freedom for all - not just equal rights for 'lesbians and gay men, but also freedom of sexual expression for young people and children." This goal has not changed since it was articulated in 1972.
Enrique T. Rueda, The Homosexual Network (Old Greenwhich, Connecticut: The Devin Adair Company, 1982), p. 201
AGE OF CONSENT
Homosexual organizations around the world have embarked upon a vigorous campaign to lower actual age of consent laws by claiming that current laws are discriminatory against homosexuals. In England, for example, a major push is underway to lower the age of sexual consent for homosexuals to 14. OutRage!, a homosexual organization that operates much like ACT UP in the United States, has been leading the crusade. In a statement published on the Queer Intelligence Service website, OutRage! claims that "under-age queers have rights too. They are some of the most vulnerable members of our community. We have a special responsibility to protect their interests and welfare.

ENTER NAMBLA (NORTH AMERICAN MAN BOY LOVE ASSOCIATION)
"NAMBLA is nothing more or less than an egregious organization of pedophiles."- Mike Echols in the L.A. Times 3/11/92
According to their website, NAMBLA's goal is to end the extreme oppression of men and boys in mutually consensual relationships by:
building understanding and support for such relationships; educating the general public on the benevolent nature of man/boy love; cooperating with lesbian, gay, feminist, and other liberation movements; supporting the liberation of persons of all ages from sexual prejudice and oppression. Their membership is open to everyone sympathetic to man/boy love and personal freedom.
In 1991 NAMBLA had over 3,000 members. However, that was prior to January 1992 when Mike Echols went to San Francisco’s KRON-TV (NBC) and worked with Jon Dann, Greg Lyon, and Craig Franklin of Target 4 News to take a hidden camera and audio wire into NAMBLA’s January 4th public meeting in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill Public Library. The resulting video and news of this meeting led to the organization’s exposure on KRON-TV News… a story which ran for 18 days straight. And this video along with interviews of Echols were featured on CNN and Geraldo Rivera’s syndicated tabloid TV show “NOW It Can Be Told.”
