What is not being addressed is the plain and simple fact that there is a telling silence coming from the gay and lesbian community in cases like this. Since the 1997 kidnap, murder, then molestation of a 10 year old Massachusetts boy, Jeffrey Curley, by two gay men, both members of the gay pedophile group, NAMBLA, advocacy groups like GLAAD have sought to threaten and coerce the media to not report on such crimes. GLAAD even sided with NAMBLA during the trials of the two men, claiming that while kidnapping and murder were appropriate charges, they felt that child molestation was not a crime.
This was repeated in 1999, after the molestation and murder of 13 year old Jesse Dirkhising of Arkansas. GLAAD was found to have sent out threatening and coercive press releases, to intimidate the news media into not reporting the murder. The Star Ledger of New Jersey actually printed the press release from GLAAD. The head of GLAAD dismissed all concerns about their attempts to censor the news claiming that it was just another murder of a child, as though it was something to forget about.
GLAAD, the HRC, GLSEN and other such advocacy groups have refused to condemn these criminal acts, and in fact have refused to issue a statement condemning Frank Lombard, NAMBLA, and especially the NAMBLA clone, lesbian pedophile organization, "Butterfly Kisses" that has formed, to be activist for the complete eradication of age of consent laws, and any protection against the molestation of children. They've allied themselves with pro-pedophile lecturers like Dr. William Stayton, who infers that adults who engage in sexual acts with children, no matter how young should not be considered criminals, and he believes that parents who object to their children being molested are "bigots".
So, rather than get on a high horse, if you truly care about children, respecting their dignity and safety, it's incumbent on all of you to actually walk the walk. You can't get away with dismissing concerns and then giving silent approbation to those who seek to abuse and exploit children.
