Pat Buchanan Suggests NAMBLA And Gay Marriage Caused Penn State Scandal

MSNBC pundit Pat Buchanan is suggesting that the Penn State child abuse and rape sex scandal caused by Jerry Sandusky ultimately is a product of NAMBLA and gay marriage. Buchanan lamented that NAMBLA — an organization that many believe to be defunct but advocated for changing laws to lower the age of consent that criminalized sex with minors — along with same-sex marriage would never have been a part of the public consciousness in the 1950s.

Buchanan, who is hard at work plugging his book, book, “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?,” agreed with radio host Rick Wiles, who stated that America is “financially bankruptcy because we’re morally bankrupt.” Buchanan then brought up NAMBLA, the North American Man/Boy Love Association — a group wholly denounced by the LGBT community — and “homosexual marriage,” suggesting that the Penn State scandal surrounding former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, and now-former coach Joe Paterno, was a product of a society whose morals have declined to the point where they allow both NAMBLA and same-sex marriage.

To be clear, there is no correlation between same-sex marriage, an institution that the majority of Americans support, and the Penn State pedophilia sex scandal. Nor is there any association between NAMBLA and same-sex marriage.

Homosexuality is an innate trait fixed at birth, while pedophilia is a psychological disorder.

Jerry Sandusky is a married man who fathered and raised four children with his wife. If the allegations are true, his is also a pedophile, not a homosexual. There’s a difference and those with a public platform like Buchanan ought to know the difference.

For the record, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that for each year between 2000 and 2005, “female parents acting alone” were most likely to be perpetrators of child abuse.

Here’s another fact: “According to the Third National Incidence Study, girls are sexually abused three times more often than boys.” And another study offers this:

Statistics indicate that girls are more frequently the victims of sexual abuse, but that the number of boys is also significant. Estimates suggest that males account for 25 – 35% of child sexual abuse victims.

Gays are no more likely to be pedophiles than straights are. It’s time to set the record straight.

I realize media many times take the opposing view and use themselves as the informants to essentially project outright lies because controversy sells and truth is boring, but a media company should take responsibility for what is printed. It has come out in non-US media that Sandusky is gay (or bi) like other gays that marry and have kids as a cover (living two private lives), so does the gay community have so much financial control over the US media that they control what is printed and what is not printed? This author's viewpoint is opposed to the gay community legal counsel. Gays are picking and choosing which legal side suits them and waffle paradigms all the time – is sexual preferences nature or nurture this week? is pedophilia and bestiality mental diseases or just another sexual preference (like gay, lesbian, bi, trans, metro,…) that is being discriminated against? Already the UK is forced to accept legal marriage to farm animals after same-sex marriage provided case-law that bestiality is just another sexual preference that must not be discriminated against. I understand lowering the age of consent back to puberty like it was in biblical days is actually gaining legal ground because of the definition of sexual preference vs mental disease.
Also, state the sources of your facts: From the BJS reports and FBI Uniform Crime Reports, the vast majority of sexual criminals against youth are "adult male against youth male" with very few "adult male against youth female" or adult female against any youth, SO the statement that "Gays are no more likely to be pedophiles than straights are" just must be wrong. Attempting to carve-out the gay male population that has the sexual preference for underage boys as " pedophile is not gay" is laughable… same-sex attraction is gay regardless of the age of the victim. What I don't understand is: gays got caught having sex with little boys in the Catholic church and the legal response was that the Church should have taken steps to protect the youth by not allowing gays as priests, then why is the Boy Scouts being condemned for enacting the non-gay safeguards the Church is being condemned for not doing?

Actually, the UK does not accept legal marriage to farm animals. I cannot find any evidence that there is any recognized formal government that does. However, about a month ago, there was a scandal in the UK over a tweet by some government official SUGGESTING that such human-animal marriages would have to be legalized due to gay marriage. That official was actually suspended from his political party for that.

While on the one hand, I do agree that it seems a bit arbitrary to discriminate between legally dating an adult of the same sex and molesting a child of the same sex, I also have to acknowledge that there is probably some amount of convenience/access that affects what child is chosen. Also, I suspect that there is some controversy over whether boys or girls are molested/abused more – though it doesn't truly matter, its always bad. I did find a report from the University of New Hampshire suggesting that females are more likely to have been sexually abused as children. How the data is collected probably makes a huge difference.

Lastly, "gays," like any large group of people, are not homogenous. Some probably think homosexuality is innate, while others may think its learned/chosen (that same debate exists among heterosexuals, too). However, I've never heard any mainstream spokesperson, whether gay or straight, advocating for human-animal relations. I don't think that slippery slope is much to be feared. And I trust the American people to know when to put on the brakes.

One can remain ignorant and speculative, or one can recognize that evidence trumps these things. Research evidence shows that there is no connection between adult sexual orientation and the sex of a victim of pedophilia.

The following large study for example(Abel and Harlowe), showed over 70% of men who molested boys rated themselves heterosexual in their adult sexual preferences… http://www.childmolestationprevention.org/pdfs/st

you are so wrong and so ignorant….. rape is about power….. what about the DJ who just got caught trying to have sex with a 7 YEAR OLD GIRL….

There is a lot more male rape against young females as well as adult females…. he is a rapist and never said he was gay…. not once did I see or hear anything about him being gay…

Another fact a huge number of non-gays are into bestiality…. The priest also raped womyn, young girls…. RAPE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BEING GAY OR NON-GAY….

I am so sick of people like you saying we are pedophile's, all the men who raped me were non-gay, some married…. I am a womyn….

Call up a rape crisis center and ask them about rape…. and one thing for sure you really don't know anything about us….

I have been with the same womyn for 25 years and have never done any sick thing you write….

One big fact, rape is a crime of opportunity, the alter boys were easy targets, because as any good catholic is lead like the sheep's they are trust these rapists….

I have watched men look at my nieces with lust, heard them make comments, and most young girls are raped by a family member male or someone the family knows….

Womyn rape young men all the time, call the rape crisis center on this one…. These rapes go on for years and until the victim comes forward it is kept in the silent world these rapists have created by using fear….

The catholic church covered this up for years, moved them to other churches….. You have a sick mind for what you wrote here and have your own issues, you need to seek professional help….

and believing anything that idiot says well you can't see through his crazy shit….. look him and look at the stuff he has done, he also needs professional help….

you must be old white male and have no clue what it is like to be discriminated against and be threaten with rape because you are gay…. and I bet you didn't serve in the military either, because men get raped by other men and these men are not gay who do the raping and not all the men raped are gay….. I know the truth, I am very involved in groups that deal with this issue….

so shut up until you know the real facts….

and next time read the whole article because it proves YOU ARE WRONG…. IT GIVES THE STATS OF FEMALE ARE THE MOST ABUSED BY MALES…..
