    The Jawa Report: Gay Couple Guilty of Child Sex Crimes


    Gay Couple Guilty of Child Sex Crimes
    (Hartford, Michigan) In June 2007, two former foster parents and same-sex couple, Kurt Alfred Amundson, 42, and Robert George Shafer, 43, were indicted by a federal grand jury for alleged sexual exploitation of a child and possession of child pornography.

    Both were charged with exploiting a child by producing images of a young boy engaged in sexually explicit conduct. It seems the boy, described as under 13 years old, was a foster child of Amundson and Shafer.

    In the latest development, both Amundson and Shafer have pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids to producing images of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

    Investigators found several images of child pornography, including images of a child befriended by the two men, on computers, cameras, CDs and floppy disks seized from the Hartford men's residence in June 2006, according to a news release.

    Authorities said the two were licensed as foster-care providers and were in the process of adopting a child for whom they were serving as foster parents. The foster child and the child befriended by the two men alleged that Shafer and Amundson sexually assaulted them, according to the news release.

    Notably, Amundson was heralded as a homosexual foster parent in a 2003 article, "The Changing Face of the American Family."
    When asked about his role as a same-sex foster parent he said mentoring children was not satisfying enough for him.

    "It was helpful, but I wanted to carry the relationship beyond that," he said in the article.

    Apparently, he did.

    Shafer and Amundson are scheduled to be sentenced, respectively, in October and November. They each face a mandatory minimum 15 years in prison with a maximum 30 years. Fines of up to $250,000 are also possible.

    Why hould children be raised by two fathers and or two mothers? research has shown that children need a mother *AND* father. Its senseless to raise to child without a strong mother and or father figure.

    This is why they should adopt children



    "Gay activists have strenuously argued that there is no connection between homosexuality and the sexual abuse of children. They point out that the majority of child molestation cases are by heterosexuals. But they neglect a pivotal fact: Homosexuals comprise only a small percentage of the population, yet account for an extraordinarily high percentage of offenses against children.

    A recent study in Demography estimated the number of exclusive male homosexuals in the general population at 2.5 percent, and the number of exclusive lesbians at 1.4 percent. The study took into account three large data sets, including the all-encompassing U.S. Census.

    Now consider a report from the Journal of Sex Research which noted that homosexual pedophiles commit about one-third of the total number of child sex offenses, even though they are outnumbered by heterosexuals 20 to one. Less than four percent of the population commits one-third of the offenses against children!

    In The Gay Report, homosexual researchers report data showing that better than 7 out of 10 homosexuals surveyed had at some time had sex with boys 16 to 19.

    Or consider a study in Archives of Sexual Behavior, which found that of 229 convicted child molesters surveyed, “85 percent of offenders against males described themselves as homosexual or bisexual.”

    The evidence is clear. Homosexuals have an overwhelming propensity towards child molestation. This is not to say that all homosexuals act out with pedophile tendencies. But the percentage of those who do is so disproportionately high it would be irresponsible and costly to ignore. Just ask the Roman Catholic Church."

    It is senseless to have children languishing in a broken and dangerous foster care system because we are searching for "perfect" families to place them with, instead of families that are "perfect" for that child.

    It is senseless to abort unwanted children, when we have competent loving adults in committed relationships who want nothing more than to give a child a loving home, safety and security, and a family to support and raise them.

    I agree with you that "ideally" each child would live with their biological mother and father in a loving, safe, committed home where they were protected and looked after. Where they were read to everynight, where they were taught morals and values along with a love for learning.

    But I also know that we do not live in a perfect world. It is far more important for a child to be in a safe, caring, loving home with adults who have promised to love and support them...than in a home with two assholes who just happen to have the right genitalia.

    It is wrong and improper to put a child in a home and make them believe that two fathers and or two mothers is just as good or even better than having a mother and father. The re are alot of good two parent mother and father families out there that want to adopt, so its no excuse why children are languishing in the foster care system and even if it was true that they are languishing its no excuse to put them with gay couples.

    You wouldn't allow someone with, say, clinical depression or bipolar disorder to adopt a child. Why allow someone with a disorder like homosexuality to adopt. The child's well-being must be the most important factor in any adoption.
