As one would expect given its anti-gay agenda, WorldNetDaily has been working to blame the child sexual abuse scandal involving former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky on homosexuality.
David A. Noebel wrote in a Nov. 15 WND column:
Homosexuality in America is now out of the closet, front and center (and has been for some time). Now homosexual man/boy activity (pederasty) is under the microscope, its normality, genetic implications and social acceptance being examined.
From what we are witnessing at Penn State and the firing of its president, Dr. Graham Spanier, and beloved head football coach, Joe Paterno, it appears that the public in general and the university trustees in particular are voting against man/boy activity – the same kind of activity being promoted in our society within NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love Association) and the American Psychiatric Association (APA).
In other words, our libertine culture is in the process of making pederasty as acceptable as the lavender revolution itself.
Noebel goes on to blame the American Psychiatric Association for removing homosexuality from its list of mental disorders, repeat discredited claims about former Obama administration education Kevin Jennings, falsely claim that Jennings is still working in the administration (he left in May), and assert, "Only morally deficient individuals would allow Kevin Jennings within a million miles of children!"
WND editor Joseph Farah joined the fun, as well as the blaming of the APA, in his Nov. 16 column:
Some may find this hard to believe, but even through the 1960s sexual revolution, homosexuality was perceived as sexual perversion. That began to change only in the 1970s, when the American Psychological Association, under political pressure, changed the very definition of homosexuality from a disorder to an identity.
No longer did God decide for America what was sinful behavior. Ever since, every man and woman has done what is right in his own eyes.
We may not fully understand the details of what Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky did or didn't do to young boys in locker rooms and showers, though he does admit inappropriate behavior. But the real question is how he did it for so long without consequences.
But now that being accused of homophobia is considered an offense, while practicing homosexuality is considered a virtue, should it really surprise anyone that such behavior would go unreported or unchallenged for so long?
Even Alan Keyes weighed on the subject in his Nov. 17 WND column:
Why would higher-ups be willing to risk their reputations and life-long careers to cover for the wrongdoing of one of their subordinates? Despite the almost religious promotion of homosexuality now in evidence at all too many of America's institutions of so-called "higher learning," it's hard to believe that they would thus willingly sacrifice themselves to the gods of "political correctness," especially given the fact that the zealous advocates of homosexual rights are still pretending to draw the line at the sexual abuse of children.
Unmentioned by these WND writers: There's no credible link between homosexuality and pedophilia.
