The UN made a good start in criticizing the Catholic church for its handling of childhood sexual abuse,
but that is only a drop in the bucket. The big picture is the abuse that occurs within the larger gay
community. Reporters, where is the spirit of Watergate? Adult male homosexuals, even in studies run
by gay researchers, admit that they have had sex with boys under 16 while they themselves were over
21. If as boy’s first sexual experience is gay, he is 60% likely to identify himself as gay and act
accordingly. The vast majority of lesbians were sexually abused as little girls. Why the difference? Girls
become frightened of men. Boys experience a mixture of shame and pleasure. So the UN applauding
“a welcoming view of homosexuals” is incongruous unless it is nuanced to show that indeed God loves
all sinners, but loves us too much to leave us that way.
