LONDON, Oct. 26 /Christian Newswire/ -- 29% of the 714 perpetrators who made the news for raping and killing children from 1980-2005 engaged in homosexuality. 600 (66%) of the 914 kids raped and murdered children were girls. Perpetrators were male 96% of the time. The 209 homosexual perpetrators accounted for 40% of the victims – 9% of the girls and 99% of the boys.
These findings -- from searching Lexis-Nexis from 1980-2005 -- uncovered 668 stories about the rape and murder of children in the major newspapers in the USA, Australia, Great Britain, Canada, etc. In 2006, of the 86 perpetrators, 32 (37%) engaged in homosexuality, 98% were male, and killed 49% of the victims. A steady growth in the proportion of perpetrators who were boyfriends or stepfathers was noted.
Sharing the findings with members and guests of the Christian Council of Britain, Dr. Paul Cameron, of the Family Research Institute, a think-tank in Colorado Springs (USA) noted that 9% of the incidents occurred in Britain. "For some reason homosexuals' involvement in this horrid crime is especially high in Britain -- with 44 (49%) of the 89 British v. 197 (28%) of the 711 non-British perpetrators engaging in homosexuality."
