Bruce Mirken, 42, was in court Tuesday charged with attempting to commit a lewd and lascivious act on a child.  Mirken has been published in the San Francisco Examiner, Miami Herald,  and the Detroit Free Press, extolling the virtues of homosexuality and denouncing the “religious right” for “lying to the American public about homosexuality.”

Going on-line under the pseudonym “Luvboys343” Mirken asked someone he thought was an underage child about skinny-dipping and whether he was alone during lunchtime. Police officers arrested Mirken after he arranged a meeting place and showed up to meet the boy. The writer claims he was doing research for one of his stories.
