David Noebel, the founder of Summit Ministries, wrote a column in WorldNetDaily yesterday holding the Obama administration and supporters of gay rights responsible for the child abuse scandal at Penn State University. Noebel is a fierce critic of the Civil Rights Movement and a former leader of the Christian Crusade, the Religious Right group whose founder, Billy James Hargis, had his own sex scandal at his American Christian College. According to Noebel, the allegations that former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky molested dozens of children could serve witness to “the demise of moral relativism at the hands of liberalism’s most cherished activity – homosexuality.”
However, Sandusky is married to a woman with children, and is not a homosexual. In fact, the American Psychological Association determined that “homosexual men are not more likely to sexually abuse children than heterosexual men are,” and as Psychology Today notes, “no true pedophile is attracted to adults, so neither homosexuality nor heterosexuality applies.”
But Noebel contends that societal acceptance of homosexuality will ultimately lead to the acceptance of pedophilia, a claim frequently voiced in Religious Right circles, and argues that the Obama Administration is advancing the goals of pedophiles. “Not only is there a scandal at Penn State, but there is a scandal in the White House and the secretary of education’s office as well,” Noebel writes referring to Kevin Jennings, the openly gay, former administration anti-bullying czar who has been the focus of a right-wing smear campaign, “Only morally deficient individuals would allow Kevin Jennings within a million miles of children!”
Noebel concludes that Obama and Education Secretary Arne Duncan are just “as guilty as Jerry Sandusky” for appointing Jennings to the anti-bullying post, warning that the “Obama/Duncan/Jennings trio will violate millions of innocent children for decades to come.”
As the Penn State University child sex-abuse scandal grows, the Wall Street Journal addressed the ethical implications, albeit in a somewhat backhanded way: “It’s also something of a relief that in a culture as libertine as ours at least some behavior – sexual exploitation of children – is still considered deviant” (Nov. 10, 2011, A-20).
Could it be that there is still an ethical absolute? Wouldn’t it be ironic to witness the demise of moral relativism at the hands of liberalism’s most cherished activity – homosexuality? Yes, Virginia, there is truth after all. It is always ethically wrong for a grown man to violate a 10-year-old boy.
The scandal centers on Jerry Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach, whose alleged pedophilic acts involved boys (8 at present, but the count is rising) as young as 10. His sexual abuse of these boys is not fit family reading material, making it difficult to fully comprehend the seriousness of the case. Indeed, the subject of homosexual activity is likewise difficult to discuss in public. Neither practice provides table talk material. Both are deviant, degenerate and disgusting.
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.
And we must not forget that the president of the United States, Barack Obama, via Arne Duncan, appointed Kevin “queering elementary education” Jennings on May 19, 2009, as assistant deputy secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools, praising him as being “uniquely qualified for his job.”
However, on Nov. 12, 2011, Obama announced in reference to the Penn State scandal that “our first priority is protecting our kids.” Not only is there a scandal at Penn State, but there is a scandal in the White House and the secretary of education’s office as well. Only morally deficient individuals would allow Kevin Jennings within a million miles of children!
So the president of the United States and the secretary of education may decry the scandal at Penn State, but they themselves are as guilty as Jerry Sandusky! Sandusky may have violated a dozen or two or even hundreds of young boys, but the Obama/Duncan/Jennings trio will violate millions of innocent children for decades to come.
The president of Penn State was fired for allowing his Jerry Sandusky to get away with molesting the innocent; the president of the United States deserves the same treatment for allowing his Kevin Jennings and Department of Education to do the same to America’s innocent elementary school children!
