Myths on Sex Education
education is a very delicate subject. Our experience
is that many parents are uncomfortable with the sex
education being offered by their children's schools.
But they have no back-up information with which to discuss
these issues with the teachers at school.
Clowes, Director of Research and Training at Human Life
International since 1995, has provided the NACF with
the following summary.( firstname.lastname@example.org, and see
the Human Life International website at www.hli.org).
Why We Must Fight the "Gay Rights" Agenda
(1) It is a public health menace
(2) It is predatory and coercive
(3) It tramples the rights of others
(4) It is extremely violent in nature
(5) It reinforces addictive behavior
(6) It degrades society
(7) It protects an illegitimate minority
(8) It is unnecessary in a democracy
(9) It is antithetical to Christianity
Let us begin by clarifying that;
" All people, including homosexuals, have basic
All of the trouble and agitation is being caused by
well-funded groups of radical organizations ? a very
small minority of homosexuals, perhaps one percent.
These organizations are being funded primarily by North
America and Europe.
Our Mission: Not to condemn, but to lead all to Christ.
Eight Primary Myths Perpetuated by Homophiles
10 percent of the population is `gay.'
(2) We were born this way.
(3) The 'gay' lifestyle is perfectly natural, normal
(4) There is no "homosexual agenda."
(5) Homosexuals are victims.
(6) Equal rights must include 'gay' marriage.
(7) Most child sexual abusers are "straight."
(8) Anyone who disagrees with us hates us.
#1: "Ten Percent of the Population is Homosexual."
Origin of The Myth: "10% of males in the sample
were predominantly homosexual between the ages of 16
and 55" [Sexologist Alfred Kinsey in 1948].
of The Myth: "Homosexuality is one in 10. It's
one in 10 on the football team. It's one in 10 on the
baseball team. It's one in 10 on the softball team.
It's one in 10 on the basketball team. Those are facts"
[homosexual activist Pat Griffin].
Reality: A summary of studies shows that the number
of people who have ever had a homosexual experience
in their entire lives is 3.1% for men and 3.3% for women.
The number of people who are exclusively homosexual
is 1.6% for men and 1.7% for women.
Story Behind the Myth: "After years of our educating
those who inform the public and make its laws, the concept
that 10 percent of the population is gay has become
a generally accepted 'fact.' While some reminding always
seems necessary, the 10 percent figure is regularly
utilized by scholars, by the press, and in government
statistics. As with so many pieces of knowledge and
myth, repeated telling made it so" [Bruce Voeller,
"Some Uses and Abuses of the Kinsey Scale"].
#2: "We Were Born This Way."
"There is little evidence of the existence of such
a thing as innate perversity. ... I have myself come
to the conclusion that homosexuality is largely a matter
of conditioning" [Alfred Kinsey in 1972].
"The genetic theory of homosexuality has been generally
discarded today. Despite the interest in possible hormone
mechanisms in the origin of homosexuality, no serious
scientist today suggests that a simple cause-effect
relationship applies" [William Masters and Virginia
"We're born man, woman, and sexual beings. We learn
our sexual preferences and orientations" [William
Masters and Virginia Johnson].
Institute Survey on Reasons Given for a Homosexual Orientation
"Why Are You Gay?"
experience as a child" 22%
a lot of homosexual friends" 16%
relationship with mother" 15%
relationship with father" 14%
partners unavailable" 12%
was born that way" 9%
This Argument is Just a Distraction! You will never
convince committed homosexuals that they were not "born
that way," despite all of the scientific evidence.
When someone says that they were "born that way,"
it is just an excuse to justify their behavior, and
so they will cling to it fanatically. Don't waste your
time arguing with them. Whether or not homosexuals were
"born that way" is irrelevant. All of us were
born with weaknesses and tendencies to sin such as lust,
desire to steal, alcoholism, lying, gossiping, violence,
hatred, etc. Weakness is not an excuse to just give
in; we will all suffer for it.
Concept: Gender Subversion
Remember that confusion causes paralysis. So in the
1960s social engineers made up the term "gender,"
which is infinitely adaptable;
"Sex" is what we are born as ? Male or female.
It cannot be manipulated or changed. Its definition
is clear and it cannot be subverted.
"Gender" is a word with no fixed meaning.
It is what we think we are, or want to be, and we can
change it at a whim. Radicals use it as a tool of confusion
and subversion. Remember that confusion causes paralysis.
The Culture of Death thrives on confusion and lack of
According to the United Nations World Health Organization,
"gender" is "the socially constructed
roles, behaviors, activities, and attributes that a
given society considers appropriate for men and women."
"Postgenderism is a diverse social, political and
cultural movement whose adherents affirm the voluntary
elimination of gender in the human species through the
application of advanced biotechnology and assistive
reproductive technologies" ["Postgenderism:
Beyond the Gender Binary"].
"Queer politics is no longer content to carve out
a buffer zone for a minoritized and protected subculture.
Our goal is to challenge the pervasive and often invisible
heteronormativity of modern societies ... Our task is
to confront modern culture with its worst nightmare
? a queer planet" [The 1993 "Queer Manifesto"].
Cluelessness on the Loose: "What if parents committed
to gender equity counteracted the effect of testosterone
on boys in the womb by complementing it with injections
of artificial female hormones? Structural gender difference
could be eradicated from the beginning. Such a policy
would lead to men and women with normal bodies but identical
feminine brains. War, rape, boxing, car racing, pornography
and hamburgers and beer would soon be distant memories.
A feminist paradise would have arrived" [Andrew
Argument: "If you're against "Gay rights,"
you must be gay yourself."
A homosexual "Waging Peace" propaganda poster
reads "If you go out of your way to pick on gays,
psychiatrists have a name for you: LATENT HOMOSEXUAL.
There was a time, years ago, when people could hide
their own homosexual tendencies by loudly attacking
other gays in public. But not anymore. These days, when
you harass gay people, it just puts the spotlight of
suspicion on you. So maybe you'd better mind your own
business, unless you want others to think that homosexuality
is your business!"
Under this "Logic;"
People who are against capital punishment long to be
Anti-war activists yearn to go to war and slaughter
Environmentalists want to drive huge SUVs;
Feminists secretly want to oppress women; and
Those who fight child abuse secretly want to beat up
and sexually abuse children.
#3: "Homosexuality is a Perfectly Healthy and Acceptable
Myth: "Once again churches lag behind science.
Long after social and behavioral scientists have proven
that homosexuality is healthy, good and natural for
a certain percentage of our population, the Roman Catholic
Church continues to teach antiquated and harmful theology"
[Mary E. Hunt].
"Perverse?" - "... an aberrant sexual
practice, especially when habitual and preferred to
normal coitus." NO.
"Unnatural?" - "... not being in accordance
with nature or consistent with a normal course of events."
"Abnormal?" - "... deviating from the
normal or average." NO.
"Unbiblical?" ? See www.gay-bible.org.
Reality: Homosexuality is a Public Health Disaster
Heavy drinkers lose an average of five years from their
Heavy smokers lose an average of seven years from their
Illegal drug addicts lose an average of ten years from
Very overweight people lose an average of twelve years
from their lives.
"Straight" men live an average of 79 years
in the USA. "Gay" men live an average of 54
years. Average loss of life: 25 years!
"Straight" women live an average of 83 years
in the USA. Lesbians live an average of 58 years. Average
loss of Life: 25 years!
Argument Ever: "Some animals are homosexual, so
it's all right."
Animals also practice murder and infanticide, child
abuse and neglect, cannibalism, incest, rape and polygamy,
and public nudity. Does this mean that people should
be able to do these things too?
The most popular example given: The Toronto Zoo's "Pedro"
and "Buddy." The two male penguins split up
the same day a female penguin finally appeared.
of an Addiction to Homosexuality
Reoriented Priorities. The homosexual addict's life
centers around his "habit." His job, his wife
and family (if any), and his possessions mean little.
If he is just beginning the homosexual lifestyle, he
gives up his old circle of friends, hobbies and other
interests. All that matters is that he is guaranteed
a steady supply of usually anonymous sexual partners.
Obsessiveness. The homosexual addict is obsessive and
insatiable. He constantly craves sexual partners and
they occupy a huge segment of his thoughts; all that
really matters is the next sexual encounter.
Compulsiveness. The homosexual addict is compulsive.
He is completely out of control emotionally. He may
make occasional half-hearted attempts at limiting or
controlling his behavior, but such attempts usually
Reclusiveness. The homosexual addict withdraws from
his former activities and friends. The homosexual lifestyle
is incomprehensible to those outside its influence,
so he associates only with his new "friends,"
because they understand him and help him get more and
more deeply into the homosexual lifestyle.
Personality Changes. The homosexual addict undergoes
severe personality changes. He becomes secretive, furtive,
obsessive and compulsive. These changes are brought
on by feelings of persecution, victimization, isolation,
and, above all, acute guilt.
Withdrawal. The homosexual addict experiences withdrawal
symptoms to varying degrees if he is placed in an environment
where other homosexuals are not available.
Escapism. The homosexual addict is an escapist. He avoids
responsibility for his actions and blames everyone else
for anything in his life that is not to his liking.
This aspect of homosexual addiction has assumed extreme
proportions in the "gay rights" movement.
Everyone is to blame for the homosexual's plight but
himself --society, the government, the
and, of course, "gay-bashing bigots."
Obsession with Privacy. The homosexual addict is extremely
concerned about privacy, because he knows that it is
essential in order to continue his socially unacceptable
Cross-Addictions. Finally, the homosexual addict does
not limit himself to compulsive sexual activity, but
becomes involved in pedophilia, transvestitism, sado-masochism
(S&M), bestiality, hard-core pornography, and other
horrors. He is very frequently an alcoholic and/or addicted
to various illegal drugs, as well. For example, studies
show that 25% to 35% of active homosexual men and women
Tragedy of a Homosexual Addiction: "In 1981 we
drew back and became more sexually conservative because
of fear of the AIDS epidemic. Now we have decided that
certain death is preferable to dull sex lives"
[A homosexual radio spokesperson].
#4: "There is No Such Thing as a "Gay Agenda"."
Myth: "I want to go to my job. I want to have a
home. I want to save my money. And I want to go on vacation.
What kind of "hidden agenda" are they talking
about?" [Homosexual activist Frank Brown].
Myth: A sign often seen at homosexual rallies says something
like this: "The Gay Agenda: Spend time with my
family/Be treated equally/buy milk."
is Legitimate Equality? "Fairness. That's all we're
asking for. Protection from unfair discrimination in
jobs and housing. An end to anti-gay violence. Immigration
reform [to allow HIV+ immigrants]. Defeat of bigoted
laws denying human dignity and equal justice to lesbians
and gay men" [Human Rights Campaign Fund]. The
great majority of homosexuals would be satisfied with
these gains. Unfortunately, it is not the majority of
homosexuals who set the true "gay" agenda.
They Try to Confuse the Issue: GLAAD offers this definition.
"OFFENSIVE: "special rights;" PREFERRED:
"equal rights" or "equal protection."
Anti-gay extremists frequently characterize civil rights
and equal protection of the law for lesbian, gay, bisexual
and transgender Americans as "special rights"
in an attempt to energize opposition to anti-discrimination
and equal opportunity laws."

is a right demanded by a group of people who deny the
same right to others, especially their ideological opponents.

and be sentenced to death or life in prison.
We demand the right to give blood, regardless of how

We demand the death penalty for anyone who harasses

#5: "Gays are Very Frequently the Targets of Violence."
Myth: "Gays" as Victims;
are a gentle, angry people/We are a justice seeking
are young and old together/We are a land of many colors
are gay and straight together/We are a gentle, loving
we are singing for our lives." - Holly Near.
Strategy: "In any campaign to win over the public,
gays must be portrayed as victims in need of protection
so that straights will be inclined by reflex to adopt
the role of protector.
gays should be portrayed
as victims of prejudice" [Marshall Kirk and Hunter
Madsen. After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its

#6: "Equal Rights Must Include Gay Marriage."
Marxist Roots of the "Gay Rights" Movement:
"The modern family contains in germ not only slavery,
but also serfdom. ... The married woman differs from
the ordinary courtesan in that she does not let out
her body on piece-work as a wage worker, but sells it
once and for all into slavery. ... The modern individual
family is founded on the open or concealed domestic
slavery of the wife" [Friedrich Engels. Origins
of the Family, Private Property, and the State].
How Homosexuals View the Family: "The oppression
of gay people starts in the most basic unit of society,
the family, consisting of the man in charge, a slave
as his wife, and their children on whom they force themselves
as the ideal models. The very form of the family works
The long-term goal
of the London Gay Liberation Front, which inevitably
brings us into fundamental conflict with the institutionalised
sexism of this society, is to rid society of the gender-role
system which is at the root of our oppression. This
can only be achieved by the abolition of the family
as the unit in which children are brought up" [The
Gay Liberation Front Manifesto].
the Meaning of "Family:" "Instead of
marriage we want to promote a co-habitation law that
ignores gender and allows more than two people in a
partnership" [Tiina Rosenberg of Feministiskt Initiativ,
Not Gay "Marriage?"
Marriage as it should be is just fine; it is people's
commitment to it that is weak.
Homosexual "marriage" is against common sense
and nature. And nature always strikes back.
Homosexual "marriage" opens the field to all
kinds of screwy ideas: Polygamy, "zoophilia,"
"Polygamy seems like a pretty good idea for professional
women, who can proceed with their careers and have someone
at home they can trust to watch their children. It solves
the day care problem. ... If NOW is about anything,
it's about choice" [Luci Malin of the National
Organization for Women (NOW)].
"Zoophiles are born with a true love for animals
and have a lifelong commitment to their care. Myself
and my dog Lady live together as a married couple. In
the eyes of God we are truly married. ... If Maine passes
an anti-bestiality law it will be a disservice to zoo
couples and would keep zoo couples from coming out of
the closet and drive us deeper underground. This helps
no one and would force me out of state" [Phillip

Marriage is Beneficial for Children: 0.
#7: "Most Child Sexual Abusers are Straight."
Myth: "Most sexual abusers of children are straight:
True" [Question 6 of the "Sexuality Stereotypes"
quiz on the Planned Parenthood Federation of America's
Teenwire Web site].
Pederasty is sexually molesting a young person of the

Ephebophilia is sexual attraction to pubescent or post-pubescent
A paraphilia is disordered sexual desire, and includes
both pederasty and pedophilia;
"Pedosexual" is a term often used by pedophiles
and those who support them.
Reality: Child Sexual Molestation
"The love between men and boys is at the foundation
of homosexuality. For the gay community to imply that
boy-love is not homosexual love is ridiculous"
[San Francisco Sentinel (a homosexual newspaper)].
"If it weren't for us pedophiles, there wouldn't
be a gay movement. If the leaders of the gay movement
today want to turn their backs on the spirit of gay
liberation, f- them. We're speaking the truth, and the
truth is that man-boy love is a central part of gay
liberation, and it is a central feature of homosexuality
in the West" [David Thorstad].
Alfred Kinsey found that 37 percent of all male homosexuals
admitted to having sex with children under 17 years
The Archives of Sexual Behavior says that "The
rate of homosexual attraction is 6-20 times higher among
A study of 229 convicted child molesters published in
the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that 86% of pedophiles
described themselves as homosexual or bisexual.
A study by sex researchers Alan Bell and Martin Weinberg
found that 25% of white homosexual men have had sex
with boys sixteen years and younger.
Homosexual activists Karla Jay and Allen Young revealed
in their 1979 Gay Report that 23% of all male homosexuals
have acted as "chicken hawks" - that is, they
have preyed on adolescent or younger boys.
Homosexual teachers are 62 times more likely to sexually
molest children than are heterosexual teachers.
During the Church sexual abuse crisis in the United
States, a homosexual priest was 110 times more likely
to sexually molest boys than were heterosexual priests.
80 percent of the child sexual abuse was homosexual
#8: "Anyone Who Opposes Us or Even Disagrees with
Us is a `Homophobe'."
Myth: Opposition = Violence: "Anyone that believes
that the hatred behind this [marriage] amendment is
any different than the hatred that was the cause of
our son's murder is fooling themselves and doesn't understand
what is happening every day in our society" [Judy
and Dennis Shepard].
is a Nonsense Word
Its only purpose is to intimidate opponents into silence;
it has no other value, and does not contribute in any
meaningful way to the debate.
Radical homosexuals use it reflexively in all situations,
even against people who have honest questions, because
they desperately fear debate and know that their views
"Homophobia" literally means "a fear
One sticker says that the definition of "homophobia"
is "An insecurity about being heterosexual."
popular homophile posters says "Hate Speech Kills."
So can we say the same about homophile hate speech?
"If [AIDS] research money is not forthcoming at
a certain level by a certain date, all gay males should
give blood. Whatever action is required to get national
attention is valid. If that includes blood terrorism,
so be it" [Homosexual activist Robert Schwab].
"I'd like to see an AIDS terrorist army, like the
Irgun which led to the state of Israel" [Homosexual
playwright Larry Kramer, founder of ACT-UP. The Irgun
was a Zionist army originating in the mid-1930s, which
slaughtered and maimed hundreds of women and children].
"If someone took out [killed] Jesse Helms or William
Dannemeyer of California, I would be the first to stand
up and applaud" [ACT-UP member Michael Petrelis].
Equations: (1) All opposition = "HATRED;"
(2) Hate speech leads to violence; (3) Therefore, opposition
against Homophile Nonsense
Remember that homophiles homosexuals thrive on the twin
weapons of confusion and intimidation.
" Be firm and polite when responding. They want
you to get excited and offended. They are deliberately
trying to offend and provoke you.

Be prepared with evidence for your claims.
First ask "why are you calling me names?"
Point out that they are against free speech, and are
being thuggish and anti-democratic.
Also say that trying to silence any opposition means
that they are the ones who are afraid. Ask them what
they are afraid of.
Ask "Are you "full of hate" just because
you disagree with me?" Are you a "heterophobe?"
Homosexuality pollutes, corrupts, deforms and ultimately
destroys everything it comes in contact with: Faith,
Church, family, the law, human relationships and health.
