What does a 9-year-old child know about sexuality? What does a pre-pubescent boy know about the meaning of “gay”? How many boys of that age still dream innocently of marrying their mothers? It is therefore absolutely outrageous that presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg gave a national platform to a 9-year-old old who wanted advice on coming out as gay.

This is as shameful as it is irresponsible. That there was not an immediate, national outcry points to the morally confused and spiritually comatose condition of much of our country.

As reported by the New York Post, “A 9-year-old Colorado boy got kudos from openly gay Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg when he asked him during a rally for help telling the world that he’s also gay.”

The boy’s name was Zachary Ro, and his question, which he wrote on a piece of paper, read, “Thank you for being so brave. Would you help me tell the world I’m gay too? I want to be brave like you.”

Not surprisingly, his question “was met with cheers and chants of ‘Love means love’ from the nearly 4,000 people in attendance.”

Buttigieg was so impressed with the question that he brought the boy on the platform, together with his mother. And he commended the boy’s courage, saying, “I don’t think you need a lot of advice from me on bravery, you seem pretty strong.”

The crowd, of course, loved his answer, and the video of their interaction has gone viral. Instead, it should have provoked a national outrage. This, too, is child abuse.

Remember. This child is only 9 years old.

He is pre-pubescent.

He is only a few years removed from thinking that boys who like girls have “the cooties.” (Do you remember hearing that in kindergarten and the first grade?)

And surveys have indicated that plenty of teenagers who identify as gay no longer do so when they reach adulthood. (See below for more.)

I’m aware, of course, that many gay readers will say to me, “You are completely ignorant. I knew I was different when I was 6.”

Perhaps you did. But plenty of others thought they were same-sex attracted as children only to find out later that they were not. (And how many kids identify as heterosexual and then later “discover” they are homosexual?)

As a 2019 article in Science Alert notes (reporting on a major new, scientific health study), “Far from being being a fixed preference, the findings suggest that sexual identity and attraction undergo extensive and often subtle changes throughout a person's life, continuing long past adolescence and into adulthood, with women showing slightly more fluidity than men.”

The lead author of the study was Christine Kaestle, a developmental health scientist at Virginia Tech.

Carly Cassella explains that, “Using data from a national survey of American students, [Kaestle’s] research tracks the sexual identity, sexual behaviour and romantic experiences of over 6,000 students from the age of 16 to 32. . . .”

Yet we are talking about tracking the sexual fluidity of teens as young as 16. What about younger teens? What about pre-teens? What about children who are just 9? Without a doubt, the shifts in identification would be even more dramatic.

A pro-gay, middle school teacher told me some years ago that coming out as gay was the new fad in her school, the new “cool” thing to do.

She then told me that, a few days earlier, a 12-year-old boy came out as gay to her class, only to say to this teacher the next day, “I think I made a mistake. Can I take it back?”

Yet this was a 12-year-old, not a 9-year-old. Even here, the contrast is stark.

How dare any of us put a 9-year-old child like this on public display, now branding him for life as gay. What if Zachary wants to “take it back” in a few years? What then?

Let me put this in a larger context for a moment. Perhaps the light will go on for you as you continue to read.

If there is one accusation that gay men hate more than any other it is the accusation that they are pedophiles. That all (or most) homosexual men are interested in having sexual relationships with boys. That it is not safe to leave a boy alone in the presence of a gay male. That all (or most of them) are child abusers. Every gay man with whom I have talked over the years has categorically and emphatically rejected these accusations. And I, for one, believe them.

In my view, the real danger is one of older homosexuals influencing impressionable children. Of indoctrination more than seduction. Of persuasion, not rape. That’s one reason I raised concerns about the potential, negative impact of a President Pete Buttigieg.

Of course, there is no denying the well-known tradition of “man-boy love” in homosexual history, from the “mentoring” of ancient Greece to the NAMBLA societies of today. Calling it “intergenerational intimacy” does not make it any less heinous.

Advocates of such practices, however, always emphasize that the sexual and romantic acts are consensual.

To paraphrase, “We absolutely deplore the raping of children. It is despicable and should be punished severely by the law. But children deserve freedom of choice as well, and if you know you are gay as a child, you should have the right to express yourself.”

In the words of gay pederast activist David Thorstad, speaking at a convention in 1998, “Freedom is indivisible. The liberation of children, women, boy-lovers, and homosexuals in general, can occur only as complementary facets of the same dream.” (For this citation and many more from Thorstad, see here.)

As expressed by the pioneer gay icon Harry Hay in 2006, “[I]f the parents and friends of gays are truly friends of gays, they would know from their gay kids that the relationship with an older man is precisely what thirteen-, fourteen-, and fifteen-year-old kids need more than anything else in the world.”

And it is here that our outrage is palpable. “How,” we ask, “can a 13-year-old child give consent to a sexual or romantic relationship with an adult, be it homosexual or heterosexual? This is a form of child abuse.”

Indeed, it is. Our outrage is not only palpable. It is justifiable.

What about children even younger? What about a 12-year-old? An 11-year-old? A 10-year-old? A 9-year-old?

Can such a young, developing child even know for sure that he or she is “gay”?

Does a 10-year-old understand sexuality? Can a 9-year-old truly understand the difference between male-female relationships, let alone the concept of “sexual orientation”?

That’s why the recent, public interaction between Zachary and Mayor Pete is so disturbing.

That it was an out and proud, gay presidential candidate who did so on a national stage only underscores the madness of the hour. And it is a foretaste of just what we could expect from an out and proud gay president. My warnings are not exaggerated.

Let us, then, shout it from the rooftops, regardless of the mockery we will take from today’s “enlightened” society.

We dare not be silent for the sake of the children.

Sex education given in public schools is child sexual abuse. I don't think I'm being radical to say that almost every child in our nation has been sexually abused, and in public. Magazines available at the grocery store checkout are frequently sexualized, and let's not get started on Teen Vogue magazine. PBS and Disney cartoons are sexually abusing children. Unashamed porn sites showing SMBD are viewed by 11-year-old boys. Physically touching is a severe form of the mental crimes occurring all the time. How each sexually abused child responds to the abuse is as individual as they are. However, I think it's safe to say, sexual abuse is one of the most damaging, identity-stealing crimes humanly possible. The consequences to our culture of this mass childhood sexual abuse cannot be understated.

I actually signed up to write my comment. Canadian, but if American, I wouldn't have voted in the 2016 election, for an actor puppet, which trumpcard is. And for sure I wouldn't have voted for the left hand of politics either. Truly believe Jesus wouldn't want any believers, to be messed up in the right and left wings of the Lucifer (RaBird) who controls this Babylon land. Donald is a secret 33rd degree ((needed the 3rd marriage, as the rule, to rise up in the ranks, to be part of the puppet master's ritual to be used for the acting presidential role)) BUT now that Pete could have all the powers of sinful votes, behind him, and move the time of Lot far more faster, which is death to Babylon by fire, well I'd say get everyone out to vote for Donald, so a little more time can be given, to sell all you have, and go out and conquer as many hearts as you can, before death of fire, rains down upon north America's sinful nations. By 2024 (which is 24th hour = midnight) the wrath will be fully known. This is the kingdom of evil, Genesis 1:2 is the 1st death, formless of life, and an earth body, totally VOID of the Light and Living Spirit of God. ((right now we are in the 14 years of Revelation)) 7 of Tribulation and 7 of Wrath. 3rd seal of Revelation 6 already opened. Which is half way through Tribulation. ((6 seals is opening each stage, and 7th seal, is the completion of Tribulation.)) The 6th seal is actually opening the last of Tribulation, which opens the beginning of Wrath. In the 7th seal, we see All the White Horse Bride, is safely within the Bridal Chamber. And God Seals the hearts of all the matrix of the Zealous Jews who will enter the harvest field in the 11th hour, preparing for the full arrival of the years of Wrath.

The gay people of Sodom and Gomorrah we’re going to rape the angels who went to warn Lot to leave. The Bible says that even the young boys were into that. Every time a new person went to those city they would tie them up in the middle of the streets outside and rape them!!! Book of Jasher

My observation is that this very public interaction between the 9-year-old boy and the supposedly staid presidential candidate celebrates and confirms a particular type of sexual attraction and potential sexual activity. I thought it was still against the law for adults to engage in sexual activity with "underage persons" or to advocate for such activity. I guess our national conversation just changed gears and moved into endorsing what used to be called pedophilia. Or am I missing something?

One more point. Yes, most homosexuals aren't child molesters. However, approximately 25% to 40% of all molestations are same-sex. Since homosexuals are estimated to comprise less than 2% of the population, the percentage of homosexuals who molest children is *much* higher than the percentage of heterosexuals who do so. Also, according to The Gay Report (published in 1979), 23% of homosexuals reported having sex with boys under 16, and 7% with boys under 13! So, even though most homosexuals don't molest children, the notion that it's not safe to leave a boy alone in the presence of a homosexual male isn't exactly ludicrous.

On other board, there was speculation that some adult probably pushed Zachary forward with a script. In other words, this confused little boy was probably being used a pawn to further an agenda. Yes, the whole thing is absolutely outrageous. As you said, it's child abuse. Sadly, it's not totally surprising, though. Shame on Buttigieg.

while I understand most homosexuals are not molesters, just as most heterosexuals are not molesters which might shock most feminists regarding male teachers, studios have should a larger percentage of the homosexual population are molesters than the heterosexual population. (they would prefer to talk numbers since those are smaller but that is only because homosexual population is smaller). plus how can a child consent??? it can be questionable if even 15 year olds can true consent. a molester always thinks the child wants it. so he will always say he consented.

of Course this is a symptom of sexual degenerate behavior. Society is moving more and more away from God and His love. It is expected to continue to decline as noted in the article how the audience was in full support. It’s disheartening it not unexpected. Keep the faith Dr Brown

Dr. Brown supports a 3xs married 2xs divorced serial adulterer Who pays off porn stars to keep quiet. I’d much rather have the Buttigieg family babysit my child than ANY member of the Trump family.

The irony of the story is that the boy is asking the question because of people like you, his fear for being shunned when coming out as gay. The real issue is THAT he has these concerns about his sexuality, which is not an "issue". Perhaps you can look in a mirror and ask yourself the question how your ideas and rhetoric impact other people.
