Disturbing headlines and misconceptions

from Go JamaicaPastor found guilty of assaulting child

A St. Mary pastor has been found guilty of assaulting a male child. The pastor, Donald Stewart, who was also a supervisor of a boy’s home in the parish, was found guilty of two counts of indecent assault on a male child a short while ago in the Port Maria circuit court.

He is booked to appear in court this Friday (10.0709) for sentencing. Stewart was originally charged with one count of buggery early last year. However, when his case was called up for mention in the Richmond Resident Magistrate Court last year, it was revealed that other incidents had allegedly taken place between him and other boys at the institution. Stewart was then slapped with 29 additional charges by the St. Mary police.

comment: it’s headines like this that leave a bitter taste in the minds of the public and cast a dark shadow over the Gay community making us all look like paedphiles. My heart goes out to those victims and their families but how can we begin to properly address the public’s understanding of paedophilia vs a homosexual who for the most part has no sexual interest in children but more so either shun them out of fear of being accused of abusing them or are nuturing towards them. In previous posts on paedophilia I tried to convey what I managed to find on the subject in as far as the differences between the philias and how to seperate homosexuality. Take a look.

Please follow up on this on Homosexuality versus Pedophilia article.
