Blake Neff from Freedom Outpost reports:
An advocacy group is calling for the federal government to loosen Internet filters in schools as a way to assist the homosexual community.
In a paper released Thursday, the LGBT Technology Partnership and Institute argues that the homosexual community has “particular needs” for the Internet that call for government action. In particular, the group is urging a reform of the government’s E-Rate policy that they say is blocking low-income individuals and students from accessing important LGBT resources and reaching out to other members of the homosexual community.
Homosexuals are asking schools to open up a Pandora’s Box to internet pornography, LGBT pornography in particular. If the federal government forces this upon the states then children at school will have access to multiple homosexual dating and pornographic websites. If you Google the words “Internet gay sites” you will get 198,000,000 links. The top links are to gay dating sites like GayCupid.com (WARNING: this site contains materials not suitable for children or adults).
Dr. Judith Reisman has studied the impact of pornography on individuals, families and society. In her column “The Porn Factor: The Path from Playboy to Sex Offender Is Well Traveled” Reisman writes:
Pornography and Pedophilia
From 1994 to 2007, at least 19 state legislatures in the U.S. passed laws named for a raped and murdered child. In my considered judgment, almost every lust-crime is now energized by pornography. There is plenty of evidence to back me up. For instance, in 1984, FBI Agent Ken Lanning testified about pedophiles’ use of pornography at a Senate hearing on the “Effect of Pornography on Women and Children”:
Adult pornography is also used, particularly with adolescent boy victims, to arouse and to lower inhibitions … A child who is reluctant to engage in sexual activity with an adult or to pose for sexually explicit photos can sometimes be convinced by viewing other children having “fun” participating in the activity … A third major use of child pornography collections is [for] blackmail … If the child threatens to tell his or her parents or the authorities, the existence of sexually explicit photographs can be an effective silencer. The pedophile threatens to show the pictures to parents, friends, or teachers if the child reveals their secret.
John Rabun, then Deputy Director of the National Center for Missing Children, stated at one of the hearings:
100 percent of the arrested pedophiles, child pornographers, pimps, what have you . . . had in their possession at the time of arrest, adult pornography. . . . [It was used] for their own sexual arousal . . . [and] particularly for the pedophiles, was a form of self-validation, “it is OK because I see it in other places. It must be all right, it is published nationally . . .”
On September 16, 1987, before the Select Committee on Children, Youth, and Families in the House of Representatives, legal counselor Alan Sears testified:
In child pornography cases in Los Angeles County, police officers testified that since they began to ask the question, over 95 percent of the children involved in that activity had had pornography used as part of the softening up or the inhibition-lowering process to seduce them and induct them into this activity … [A] substantial number of the men who go on to be abusers were abused children themselves. Pornography plays a significant role in the training of our young people to become sexual abusers.
Detective Lt. Darrell Pope, Commanding Officer of the Michigan State Police Sex Crime Unit, testified at the same hearing:
[I]n 1977, I did a research project where I looked at 38,000 case histories [of sex crimes] and found that 41 percent of those reports indicated that, in fact, pornographic materials were used just prior to or during the actual act. (emphasis added).
Pope interviewed hundreds of sex offenders about their porn use, and “almost to a man,” the reply was: “I used it for one of several reasons: One, to encourage me.” Pope went on:
I can remember talking to one young man who was 19 years old; he said, “It excited me and then I got to thinking about it and I wanted to know how it felt.” … He wanted to know how it felt to rape a woman and kill her … And when we arrested this young man and searched his home, we found a pornographic magazine depicting this very thing that he had done.
This effort is just another step towards the recruitment of children for sex, homosexual sex. Nothing more, nothing less.
