Militant Somali group stones a man to death for gay sex: reports
The punishment was doled out by an al-Shabab judge who accused the man of having sex with a young boy.
And from Andrew Vachss' 1994 article in the London Observer: Another pitch pedophiles use to gain support is to claim fellowship with the gay community by calling anti-paedophile activity "homophobic." Their cry is: "Today the paedophile, tomorrow the homosexual." This argument is aided and abetted by sloppy journalists who report "homosexual child abuse" when the perpetrator and victim are of the same sex, but never headline "heterosexual child abuse"' when they are not. The truth is, of course, that predatory pedophiles are neither homosexual nor heterosexual; they are child molesters. It is worthy to note that the world's largest gay and lesbian organization has recently severed all ties with NAMBLA (the grotesquely named North American Man-Boy Love Association, which actively promotes sex between children and adults), finding NAMBLA's positions "reprehensible."

Rapists, child molesters, domestic violence perpetrators, and others of that ilk terrorize more than just their individual victims; their presence in the community endangers us all. Alice Vachss, former Chief of the Special Victims Bureau for the Queens County (NY) District Attorney's Office, wrote a non-fiction account of her experiences on the front lines of the war against such criminals. In it, she coined the term collaborator to describe those who, by their attitudes and actions, aid and abet them. What follows is a series of news accounts, all featuring the same protagonist. You be the judge...
