In the interview published March 1998, Francis Bacon said of his father, "I disliked him, but I was sexually attracted to him when I was young. When I first sensed it, I hardly knew it was sexual. It was only later, through the grooms and the people in the stables I had affairs with, that I realized it was a sexual thing towards my father."

Mr. Bacon's statement is a perfect example of the re-interpretation of experience that has taken place because of prevailing theories. If homosexuality is inborn and only makes it's appearance over time (as his older partners undoubtedly told him), then the explanation is reasonable.

However, there is another, far more compelling explanation. If a young man hungers for affection from a father, he will seek out a father substitute. Because of his emotional need, he will be vulnerable to victimization by homosexual men, who interpret the need as sexual. Since they rationalize their own behavior and his, they may actually believe they are doing him a favor.

Sexual experience becomes habit forming and self perpetuating. According to the work of Dr. Paul Cameron, if the first sexual experience of a boy or young man is homosexual, whether forced, seduced or consensual, it is 60% likely to be followed by an ongoing homosexual orientation. In addition, 25% of adult male homosexuals admit that when they were over 21, they had sex with a boy under 16.

This crucial evidence is hidden by prevailing paradigms and political correctness. So those affected continue to suffer and more are recruited into a destructive lifestyle. Does knowledge save? No, only the transforming power of the blood of Jesus Christ can help Mr. Bacon and the countless others trapped in this diabolical counterfeit of God's original design. But ignorance enslaves and lies deceive.
