For anyone who believes in the basic human rights of gay men and lesbians, it was predictable that right wing religious zealots would launch an attack on homosexual rights after the arrest of Jerry Sandusky in the Penn State scandal involving his inappropriate sexual contact with young boys.
The fact is that there is absolutely no connection between pedophilia and homosexuality, as the vast majority of pedophilia cases involve adult men with young girls, followed by adult women with young boys.
Pedophilia is a crime, and involves the reality of young people being victimized by adults.
Homosexuality is not a crime, and involves consenting adults male or female, who have a natural inclination toward people of the same sex.
No adult male who is normal wishes to engage in sexual conduct with a child, who is being forced into activity that is non consensual, and even if a child believes he or she is interested in such conduct, legally he or she is not able to consent because of age restrictions in state laws.
It is a tragedy that pedophilia is being seen as an excuse to attack the gay community, which has no desire to promote such sick behavior, and if any individual is involved in such activity, they should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
It is also sad that gay parenting, gay foster care, and gay adoption is being targeted, when there is absolutely no evidence of inappropriate behavior by gay parents, and yet there is much evidence of heterosexual fathers who abuse their own daughters!
This kind of discrimination and bigotry must be exposed for what it is!
