I could go on and on citing articles that Paul has written, but these are enough to make my point, and make most people uneasy. In his latest he cites a 2006 study from renowned expert on sexuality Judith A. Reisman. Let's review some facts. First off, Reisman has her Masters of Arts and Doctorate in Philosophy and communications. How exactly does that make her an expert on sex? She is famous for challenging the works of Dr. Alfred Kinsey. In turn here is the response she received:
Attention has focused on Dr. Alfred Kinsey recently because of the institute's celebration of the 50-year anniversary of his book and reports that a Hollywood film company is interested in producing a film about Kinsey.
This attention provides an opportunity for long-time anti-Kinsey crusader Judith Reisman to put forth, once again, her opinions on Kinsey and on the Institute. Allegations against Alfred Kinsey and his research on children's sexual responses, as reported in Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, were first made in 1981 by Dr. Reisman. She subsequently enlarged on these ideas in a book written jointly with Edward Eichel and published in 1990 (Kinsey, Sex, and Fraud). When The Kinsey Institute responded, Reisman filed suit in 1991 against The Kinsey Institute, then director June Reinisch, and Indiana University, alleging defamation of character and slander. In September 1993, Reisman's lawyer withdrew from the case, and in June 1994 the court dismissed Reisman's case with prejudice (which means that Reisman is prohibited from refiling the suit).
Response to Controversy
Below is a reiteration of previous accusations and the Institute's response.
The act of encouraging pedophiles to rape innocent babies and toddlers in the names of "science" offends. The act of protecting them from prosecution offends. The act of falsifying research findings which, in turn, open the floodgates for the sexual abuse of children, offends. (from Dr. Laura's (Schlesinger) website)
This would be a cause of great concern if it were true. Kinsey was not a pedophile in any shape or form. He did not carry out experiments on children; he did not hire, collaborate, or persuade people to carry out experiments on children. He did not falsify research findings and there is absolutely no evidence that his research "opened flood gates for the sexual abuse of children". Kinsey did talk to thousands of people about their sex lives, and some of the behaviors that they disclosed, including abuse of children, were illegal. In fact, many sexual behaviors, even those some between married adults, were illegal in the 1940's and 1950's. Without confidentiality, it would have been impossible to investigate the very private lives of Americans then, and even now.
Where did Kinsey's information about children's sexual responses come from?
Kinsey clearly stated in his male volume the sources of information about children's sexual responses. The bulk of this information was obtained from adults recalling their own childhoods. Some was from parents who had observed their children, some from teachers who had observed children interacting or behaving sexually, and Kinsey stated that there were nine men who he had interviewed who had sexual experiences with children who had told him about how the children had responded and reacted.
In a British documentary, a woman says she was sexually abused by her father and grandfather, and that her father justified it as doing research for Alfred Kinsey by filling out questionnaires.
We have no reason to doubt that this woman was sexually abused. However, Kinsey did not ask people to fill out questionnaires. It is conceivable that this woman's father or grandfather wrote to Kinsey, as many people have done. Following that documentary, we checked through Kinsey's correspondence and could not find any that would match this story. We do know that there have been people who have used Kinsey's name to justify what they do sexually, even recently.
Kinsey used a Nazi SS officer from Germany as one of his key contributors.
In Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, Kinsey invited people to write to him about their sex lives. In 1955, a German wrote to him and told him about his sexual experiences with children. Kinsey, in his reply, was non-judgmental, as usual.Kinsey never made use of this information. He did however point out how strongly society condemned such behavior. Kinsey never made use of the information from this man. He also had no idea that this man had been a Nazi ten years earlier.... To suggest that Kinsey had something to do with Nazi torture of children is a bizarre fabrication.
The fact that this woman is not a Dr. of psychology or even sociology makes me wonder why anyone cares to call her an expert in sexuality, and the fact that the courts told not to bother coming back with her complaints seems to sum up how valueless her words are.
I was hoping for better from Paul after reading the begining of his blog and his family background. Unfortunately it seems he uses the same tactics as James Dobson; cite people whose work is junk and add in the fear factor to keep people hating their neighbors. Paul, I love you as Christ asks us to, but I am very disappointed in how you show your love to people who are different from you, like me. I hope this article gives all who read it something to think about when they look in the mirror today.
Our Lady La Salette is the reconciler of sinners, not the persecutor of homosexuals. I challenge all Christians to ask yourself one question. By what terms can we live in peace with our fellow man who refuses to follow the path we believe is right? I look forward to your answers. As something to consider, please watch this short video of a man who lived a horribly miserable life repressing his homosexuality, then learned how to love himself as God made him. Therein he finds the peace Christ wants all of us to have.
