WASHINGTON, May 31, 2002 ( – A new report published by the Family Research Council (FRC) reveals that there is a body of evidence indicating a definite link between homosexuality and pedophilia. Statistics show that homosexual men, who represent less than 3 percent of the adult male population, commit a disproportionate number (one-third or more) of the cases of child sexual molestation. The report, “Homosexuality and Child Sexual Abuse,” authored by Dr. Timothy J. Dailey, is being sent to parents, youth groups, school administrators, Catholic bishops, and religious organizations.  FRC’s report comes at a time when the nation has been rocked by scandals of child sexual abuse and when homosexuals argue that youth organizations such as the Boy Scouts should be forced to include homosexuals as leaders. Similarly, gay activist organizations are encouraging homosexual teachers to share their sexuality with their students. Many parents have become concerned that children may be molested, encouraged to become sexually active, or even “recruited” into adopting a homosexual identity and lifestyle.  “Homosexuality and Child Sexual Abuse” examines the following evidence linking homosexuality to pedophilia:  * Pedophiles are invariably males: Almost all sex crimes against children are committed by men.  * Significant numbers of victims are males: Up to one-third of all sex crimes against children are committed against boys (as opposed to girls).  * The 10 percent fallacy: Studies indicate that, contrary to the inaccurate but widely accepted claims of sex researcher Alfred Kinsey, homosexuals comprise between 1 to 3 percent of the population.  * Homosexuals are over represented in child sex offenses: Those among the 1 to 3 percent of the population that is sexually attracted to the same sex are committing up to one-third of the sex crimes against children.  * Some homosexual activists defend the historic connection between homosexuality and pedophilia: Such activists consider the defense of “boy-lovers” to be a legitimate gay rights issue.  * Pedophile themes abound in homosexual literary culture: Gay fiction as well as serious academic treatises promote “intergenerational intimacy.”“Children have become the last sexual frontier,” FRC President Ken Connor said. “Those given the task of protecting our nation’s children should give a serious look at these statistics and think twice before complying with the demands of homosexual activists.”  See the full FRC report at:
