Note: Liberated Christians is a primarily about heterosexual relationships.
While we are supportive of all sexual orientations, the leaders do not have the
resources to assist them in their special issues. Thus, our Fellowship groups are
not appropriate for gays/lesbians. However, individually Dave (an extreme heterosexual
- Kinsey Scale= 0) has done extensive biblical research and has been active supporting
biblical homosexuality for many years. However, there is no "official"
stand as an organization on homosexuality other than general support.
The idea of trying to blame homosexuals for
any child abuse
is shear poppycock!
As 7/12/94 article in USA Today Child Molesters Rarely Homosexual points out a child
is 100 times as likely to be
sexually abused by a heterosexual than a gay adult. Its unfair to connect pedophile
with gay or lesbians.
The view that homosexuals are likely child molesters often underlies custody challenges
filed against gay parents and
the dismissal of gay Boy Scout and youth group leaders.
Dr. Carole Jenny of the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Denver, studied
269 sexual abused children examined during one year at Denver Children's Hospital.
80% of girls were molested by a man who was or had been in a heterosexual relationship
with the child s mother or another relative.
75% of boys were abused by males in heterosexual relationships with female relatives.
Only 1 of 219 girls was molested by a lesbian; 1 out of 50 boys by a gay male. This
is a much lower percentage than the likely 6-10% of the population that is homosexual,
therefore the incidence of gays molesting is much lower than the rate for heterosexuals.
