Sound familiar? "Gay rights campaigner"? Let us count the
names.

A paedophile ring has been smashed after eight men were found
guilty of a horrifying catalogue of more than 50 child
pornography and abuse charges.

Among the crimes was a shocking sexual attack carried out on a
three-month-old baby boy by an executive adviser on child sex
issues.

James Rennie, chief executive of a publicly-funded gay rights
group, was one of the men exposed yesterday as members of
Scotland's biggest paedophile ring.

Rennie, 38, molested the toddler son of unsuspecting friends - a
little boy he had been trusted to babysit - recording the abuse
and sharing it with other perverts.

In the course of the police investigation, the boy's parents
were forced to watch a video of their baby son being violated by
Rennie.

Last night, after the eight men were found guilty of a string of
child sex charges at the High Court in Edinburgh, the child's
parents reacted with disgust.

They said: 'For over 15 years, James Rennie seemed the closest
of family friends and it is hard to put into words the extent of
the betrayal he has exacted upon us.'

During their investigations, police recovered tens of thousands
of still and moving images of the most vile child abuse.

Police sources revealed yesterday that the activities of 70
other men around the UK with links to the case are being
investigated.

More than 35 people have been arrested or been subject to
enforcement action. Two investigations are continuing in
Scotland.

One of the most worrying aspects of the case is the way Rennie
was able to reach a position where he could influence Executive
policy on child sexuality.

A trained teacher, Rennie became the boss of LGBT Youth
Scotland, a publicly-funded support group for lesbian, gay,
bisexual and transgender young people.

He took on the £40,000 a year role when the group was set up in
2003 and became the Executive's most important and influential
adviser on gay issues affecting children.

Under his leadership, the group backed proposals to allow gay
adoption. As well as appearing in the Scottish parliament, he
was invited to a Royal Garden Party and to Downing Street.

esterday, Rennie, from Edinburgh, was found guilty of indecently
abusing the baby boy. The abuse began when the child was three
months old and continued for several years. Rennie filmed and
photographed himself committing the abuse, sent the images to
others and allowed another man to listen on the phone while he
molested the child.

He allowed the boy, whom he called his 'nephew', to be abused by
another paedophile and also offered him to other deviants in a
series of emails.

When his home was raided in December 2007, Rennie had gone to
the trouble of hiding computer hard drives, discs and CDs in a
gap next to the water tank in his kitchen. Between these storage
devices and his laptop computer, he was found to be in
possession of thousands of images, many of them at the most
extreme level of the scale.

Rennie carried out his vile activities as part of a Scottish
paedophile ring swapping images of child pornography on the
internet.

He was suspended as soon as LGBT Youth Scotland was told of his
arrest in December 2007 and resigned soon afterwards.

Last night, a spokesman for LGBT Youth Scotland, which received
£1.1million in 2008 from the Executive, councils and health
boards, said: 'We are appalled by the abuse and exploitation of
children by James Rennie, and wholeheartedly welcome his
conviction. Our immediate thoughts are with the children and
families who have been directly, and indirectly, abused by him
and the other co-accused also convicted.

'We had no suspicion whatsoever of the crimes James Rennie was
committing. He was obviously skilled at hiding his actions and
adept at deceiving people. There is no suggestion James Rennie
directly threatened the safety of young people accessing our
services.'

Last night the Executive said that it would continue to fund
LGBT.

When he was arrested, Rennie had a steady boyfriend, but trawled
the internet looking for gay sex dates.

He also used the internet to meet other paedophiles, including
Neil Strachan, a child molester who was jailed for three years
at Edinburgh Sheriff Court in 1997 for abusing a boy of between
five and seven.

Strachan, 41, joined Rennie for a sex session with Rennie's
'nephew' at his flat in Meadowbank when the boy was between one
and three.

Rennie then boasted about the encounter to another paedophile,
Lachlan Anderson, 51, from Cumbernauld, Dunbartonshire.

Anderson is currently serving a 20-month sentence after being
caught with a collection of child pornography, including images
of Rennie abusing the child. He was brought from jail to give
evidence at the trial.

Strachan was found guilty of attempting to sodomise a different
18-month-old toddler on the night of Hogmanay 2005 at his flat
in the Dalry area of Edinburgh.

Last night, the boy's mother said: ' The anguish I feel towards
Mr Strachan is indescribable.

'I feel that no matter what punishment is given to Mr Strachan
it will never be able to compensate for the hurt, devastation
and great deal of stress brought to me and my family.

'Mr Strachan used and abused our trust in order to satisfy his
and others' sick needs.'

Strachan's 23-year-old boyfriend Colin Slaven was cleared of
taking part in the sex act, which was photographed and sent to
Rennie.

Rennie involved John Milligan, 40, in his sick acts by allowing
him to listen to the baby boy being abused.

Milligan also discussed getting his hands on the child - and
passed on images of Rennie's abuse to others.

The paedophile ring was uncovered when photos of naked boys were
found on Strachan's computer. He handed it in for repair at a
company in England in 2007.

A computer engineer found one indecent image of a child on the
machine and police were called in.

An examination by Northumbria Police revealed other images.

The inquiry moved to Edinburgh, where Operation Algebra was set
up in October 2007 by Lothian and Borders Police.

Detective Superintendent Allan Jones, senior investigating
officer in Operation Algebra, said of the men: 'Many of them
wouldn't stand out from a general member of the public; but in
the background they lead this double life, looking at some of
the most vile material you would ever care to imagine.

'Quite what motivates them and why they take this course of
action I really don't know. What I do know is we can't be
forgiving of it and we've got to pursue it to the nth degree to
make sure that this material is stopped.'

A jury found Rennie, Strachan, Milligan, Ross Webber, 27, and
Craig Boath, 24, guilty of plotting to arrange access to
children to carry out acts of gross sexual abuse. It is the
first time a conspiracy charge has been used successfully in
Scotland to convict perverts.

Church bell ringer Neil Campbell, 46, was cleared of that
charge. But all six, along with Slaven and John Murphy, 44, were
found guilty of charges relating to child pornography.

Having been convicted of actual physical abuse of children,
Rennie and Strachan face a possible life sentence.

Prosecutor Dorothy Bain, QC, asked for 'a full risk assessment'
which would allow the court to impose an order for lifelong
restriction - under which a judge imposes a minimum sentence but
the accused are only freed when the parole board considers it
safe to do so.

They then remain under strict supervision for the rest of their
lives.

Judge Lord Bannatyne said: 'I am going to go down that route and
investigate an order for lifelong restriction for both these
accused.'

All eight men were remanded in custody to await sentence.

I hear that nigger rights campaigners are behind all the black crime in the
USA.
All I can say that it's great to live in a nation that disarms Americans
crossing the border, and if you refuse to relinquish your firearms, you will
be arrested or shot.
It's true. The USA has as many homosexuals as Canada has people.

That's why Donald Trump, with that sweet cock sucking mouth is so popular, and
Obama was elected, because everybody knows that black people have giant dicks.

What else can be expected from a coutry that has a $10 Billion porno industry
for its women, and another $5 billion wasted on Gay Porn?

That's not what Katharine Lee Bates was thinking when she wrote "America, The
Beautiful"

Hell, most Americans think that Katharine Lee Bates was fat actress Kathy
Bates from American Horror Story or when she broke ankles in Misery.

They are really that stupid.

Sound familiar? "Gay rights campaigner"? Let us count the names.
A paedophile ring has been smashed after eight men were found guilty of a
horrifying catalogue of more than 50 child pornography and abuse charges.
Ann Landers used to proclaim that the statement “Homosexuals are more
inclined to molest children sexually than heterosexuals” is false. The
American Psychological Association sponsored a work asserting: “Recognized
researchers in the field on child abuse,… almost unanimously concur that
homosexual people are actually less likely to approach children sexually.”

Why is it, then, that we read about sex between boys and men in every
newspaper? Does it merely reflect sensationalist journalism? We know that
heterosexual molestation also occurs. But since there are so many more
heterosexuals than homosexuals, which kind of child molestation — homosexual
or heterosexual — is proportionately more common?

Three kinds of scientific evidence point to the proportion of homosexual
molestation:) survey reports of molestation in the general population,
surveys of those caught and convicted of molestation, and 3) what
homosexuals themselves have reported. These three lines of evidence suggest
that the 1%-to-3% of adults who practice homosexuality account for between a
fifth and a third of all child molestation.

Reports of Molestation by the General Population

In 1983, a probability survey of the sexual experiences of 4,340 adults in
five U.S. cities found that about 3% of men and 7% of women reported sexual
involvement with a man before the age of 13 (i.e., 30% was homosexual).

In 1983-84, a random survey of 3,132 adults in Los Angeles found that 3.8%
of men and 6.8% of women said that they had been sexually assaulted in
childhood. Since 93% of the assailants were male, and only 1% of girls had
been assaulted by females, about 35% of the assaults were homosexual.

The Los Angeles Times surveyed 2,628 adults across the U.S. in 1985.6 27% of
the women and 16% of the men claimed to have been sexually molested. Since
7% of the molestations of girls and 93% of the molestations of boys were by
adults of the same sex, about 4 of every 10 molestations in this survey were
homosexual.

In a random survey of British 15-to-19 yr olds, 35% of the boys and 9% of
the girls claimed to have been approached for sex by adult homosexuals and
2% of the boys and 1% of the girls admitted to succumbing.

In science, a review of the professional literature published in a refereed
scientific journal is considered to be an accurate summary of the current
state of knowledge. One of the most comprehensive such reviews was published
in 1985.8 It concluded that homosexual acts were involved in 25% to 40% of
the cases of child molestation recorded in the scientific and forensic
literature.

Surveys of Those Convicted

Drs. Freund and Heasman of the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry in Toronto
reviewed two sizeable studies and calculated that 34% and 32% of the
offenders against children were homosexual. In cases they had personally
handled, homosexuals accounted for 36% of their 457 pedophiles.9

Dr. Adrian Copeland, a psychiatrist who works with sexual offenders at the
Peters Institute in Philadelphia, said that, from his experience, pedophiles
tend to be homosexual and “40% to 45%” of child molesters have had
“significant homosexual experiences.”

Dr. C.H. McGaghy estimated that “homosexual offenders probably constitute
about half of molesters who work with children.”Other studies are similar:
Of the approximately 100 child molesters in 1991 at the Massachusetts
Treatment Center for Sexually Dangerous Persons, a third were heterosexual,
a third bisexual, and a third homosexual in orientation.
A state-wide survey of 161 Vermont adolescents who committed sex offenses in
1984 found that 35 (22%) were homosexual.
Of the 91 molesters of non-related children at Canada’s Kingston Sexual
Behaviour Clinic from 1978 to 1984, 38 (42%) engaged in homosexuality.
Of 52 child molesters in Ottawa from 1983 to 1985, 31 (60%) were homosexual.
In England for 1973, 802 persons (8 females) were convicted of indecent
assault on a male, and 3,006 (6 of them female) were convicted of indecent
assault on a female (i.e., 21% were homosexual). 88% of male and about 70%
of female victims were under age sixteen.

Because of this pattern, Judge J.T. Rees concluded that

“the male homosexual naturally seeks the company of the male adolescent, or
of the young male adult, in preference to that of the fully-grown man. [In
1947] 986 persons were convicted of homosexual and unnatural offences. Of
those, 257 were indictable offences involving 402 male victims…. The great
majority of [whom]… were under the age of 16. Only 11%… were over 21.”

“[T]he problem of male homosexuality is in essence the problem of the
corruption of youth by itself [i.e., by other boys] and by its elders. [And
thereby]… the creation… of new addicts ready to corrupt a still further
generation of young men and boys in the future.”

What Homosexuals Admit

The 1948 Kinsey survey found that 37% of the gays and 2% of the lesbians
admitted to sexual relations with under-17-yr-olds, and 28% of the gays and
1% of the lesbians admitted to sexual relations with under-16-yr-olds while
they themselves were aged 18 or older.

In 1970 the Kinsey Institute interviewed 565 white gays in San Francisco:
25% of them admitted to having had sex with boys aged 16 or younger while
they themselves were at least 21.

In The Gay Report, 23% of the gays and 6% of the lesbians admitted to sexual
interaction with youth less than 16 years of age.20

In France, 129 convicted gays (average age 34 years) said they had had
sexual contact with a total of 11,007 boys (an average of 85 different boys
per man).21 Abel, et al reported similarly that men who molested girls
outside their family had averaged 20 victims each; those who molested boys
averaged 150 victims each.22

Summary

About a third of the reports of molestation by the populace have involved
homosexuality. Likewise, between a fifth and a third of those who have been
caught and/or convicted practiced homosexuality. Finally, a fifth to a third
of surveyed gays admitted to child molestation. All-in-all, a rather
consistent story.

Teacher-Pupil Sexual Interaction

Nowadays parents are labeled bigots for fearing that homosexual teachers
might molest their children. But if homosexuals are more apt to molest
children and are in a position to take advantage of them, this fear makes
sense. Indeed, accounts of disproportionate homosexual teacher molestation
appear throughout the scientific literature.

The original U.S. Kinsey study reported that 4% of the non-criminal white
gays and 7% of the non-criminal white lesbians reported that they had their
first homosexual experience with a ‘teacher or other caretaker.’ None of the
heterosexuals were recorded as having a teacher as their first sex partner.

In England, Schofield reported that at least 2 of his 150 homosexuals had
their first homosexual experience with a teacher and an additional 2
reported that their first homosexual contact with an adult was with a
teacher. One of the 50 men in his comparison group had also been seduced by
a homosexual teacher, while none of the men interviewed claimed involvement
with a heterosexual teacher.

In the 1978 McCall’s magazine study of 1,400 principals, 7% reported
complaints about homosexual contact between teachers and pupils and 13%
reported complaints about heterosexual contact between teachers and pupils
(i.e., 35% of complaints were homosexual). Two percent “knew of instances in
which teachers discussed their homosexuality in class.”

Of 400 consecutive Australian cases of molestation, 7 boys and 4 girls were
assaulted by male teachers. Thus 64% of those assaults were homosexual.

In 1987, Dr. Stephen Rubin, associate professor of psychology at Whitman
College, conducted a 10-state survey and found 199 sexual abuse cases
involving teachers. 122 male teachers had abused female pupils and 14 female
teachers had abused male students. In 59 cases, however, male teachers had
abused male pupils and in 4 cases female teachers had abused female students
(overall 32% were homosexual).

A 1983 survey asked 4,340 adults to report on any sexual advances and any
physical sexual contact by elementary and secondary teachers (4% of those
who were teachers in the survey claimed to be bisexual or homosexual). 29%
of the advances by elementary and 16% of the advances by secondary school
teachers were homosexual. In addition, 1 of 4 (25%) reports of actual sexual
contact with an elementary school teacher were homosexual. In high school, 8
(22%) of 37 contacts between teacher and pupil were homosexual. 18% reported
having had a homosexual teacher (8% of those over the age of 55 vs. 25% of
those under 26). Of those reporting a homosexual teacher, 6% said that the
teacher influenced them to try homosexuality and 13% of the men and 4% of
the women said that the teacher made sexual advances toward them.

Summary

Whether examining surveys of the general populace or counts of those caught,
homosexual teachers are disproportionately apt to become sexually involved
with children.

Proportionality Is The Key

Study after nationwide study has yielded estimates of male homosexuality
that range between 1% and 3%.3 The proportion of lesbians in these studies
is almost always lower, usually about half that of gays. So, overall,
perhaps 2% of adults regularly indulge in homosexuality. Yet they account
for between 20% to 40% of all molestations of children.

Child molestation is not to be taken lightly. Officials at a facility which
serves about 1,500 runaway youngsters each year estimate that about half of
the boys have been homosexually abused and 90% of the girls heterosexually
assaulted.30 Investigation of those suffering severe chronic mental illness
implicates child molestation as a primary cause; 45% of Bigras et al’s
patients were homosexually abused).

If 2% of the population is responsible for 20% to 40% of something as
socially and personally troubling as child molestation, something must be
desperately wrong with that 2%. Not every homosexual is a child molester.
But enough gays do molest children so that the risk of a homosexual
molesting a child is 10 to 20 times greater than that of a heterosexual.

Goals of the Gay Movement

The gay movement is forthright about seeking to legitimize child-adult
homosexual sex. In 1987, The Journal of Homosexuality — the scholarly organ
of the gay rights movement — published “Pedophilia and the Gay Movement.”32
Author Theo Sandfort detailed homosexual efforts to end “oppression towards
pedophilia.” In 1980, the largest Dutch gay organization (the COC)

“adopted the position that the liberation of pedophilia must be viewed as a
gay issue… [and that] ages of consent should therefore be abolished… by
acknowledging the affinity between homosexuality and pedophilia, the COC has
quite possibly made it easier for homosexual adults to become more sensitive
to erotic desires of younger members of their sex, thereby broadening gay
identity.”

In 1990, COC achieved a significant victory: lowering of the age of consent
for homosexual sex in Holland to 12 (unless the parents object, in which
case it goes up to 15).

In the U.S. and Canada, the North American Man-Boy Love Association marches
proudly in many gay pride parades with the stated goal of removing the
barriers to man-boy sex. Note the phrases “oppression towards pedophilia”
and “liberation of pedophilia.” It is clear that those who advocate the
legalization of sex between adults and children intend to argue that such
conduct is a “civil right,” deserving of the same legal protections afforded
to other minorities. A large proportion of Americans regard that argument as
a mere pretext to giving “sexual predators” free reign to take advantage of
vulnerable children.

Not only is the gay rights movement upfront in its desire to legitimize sex
with children, but whether indexed by population reports of molestation,
pedophile convictions, or teacher-pupil assaults, there is a strong,
disproportionate association between child molestation and homosexuality.
Ann Landers’ claim that homosexuals molest children at no higher a rate than
heterosexuals do is untrue. The assertion by gay leaders and the American
Psychological Association that a homosexual is less likely than a
heterosexual to molest children is patently false.
