When Don Lemon, an openly gay anchor on CNN, revealed that he had been molested as a child he knew that some people would believe that the molestation and his sexual identity were related. Despite the fact that Lemon (and science) has dismissed such claims, Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Sexuality continues to believe that homosexuality can be caused by childhood molestation.
In the 2010 CNN video below about the alleged pederastic activity of Atlanta mega-pastor Bishop Eddie Long…Lemon reveals that he was molested as a boy. What is perplexing is that Lemon, like so many self-styled “gay” men, apparently oes not view his molestation as a major causative factor in his homosexual identity and behavior. “People are going to say: ‘Oh, he was molested as a kid and now he is coming out [as homosexual].’ I get it,” Lemon told the New York Times dismissively, in discussing his new book. “Transparent,” in which he reveals his homosexuality. To me, there is no greater proof of the perverse self-deception of homosexuality than to behold how sexually confused adults incorporate their victimization at the hands of pedophiles into their out-and-proud “gay” identity. Which is to say — even before reading his book: ”Don, you are not ‘gay,’ but the victim of a homosexual child molester, who corrupted your mind, body and soul — and innocence — at a tender young age!”
