Paedophile child psychiatrist revelations – Amnesty demands investigation by UK child abuse inquiry
Amnesty International has called again for allegations of involvement by UK security services in child abuse at Kincora Boys’ Home in Northern Ireland to be investigated by the Westminster child abuse inquiry.
The latest Amnesty call comes as a new report reveals that Dr Morris Fraser, a child psychiatrist who has been linked to Kincora, and who was convicted of sexually assaulting a child while working for a Belfast hospital in 1972, was allowed to remain on the British medical register for 24 more years during which he was convicted on abuse charges on two further occasions.

Poems About The Birth of The Self 
by Wendy Hoffman
The search for my true past came in distinct waves. This collection of poems includes some from the long period when I knew something was drastically wrong but didn’t consciously know what that was and some from the breakthrough when I discovered my never-bloomed self. The poems cover the outskirts of my awakening, my plowing through and arrival in the middle of awareness. When dissociated memories and emotions exploded inside, eventually they filtered into a poem. The horror transmuted itself. These poems are that record. I have regained a real, not imposed, self.

Massachusetts priest defrocked for sexually abusing minor: archdiocese
The Vatican unveiled in 2014 that it had defrocked more than 800 priests since the start of the crisis.
Insurance experts told a Vatican conference in 2012 that as many as 100,000 U.S. children may have been the victims of clerical sex abuse. Some 12 U.S. dioceses have filed for bankruptcy since the scandal broke, in part due to more than $3 billion in settlements paid to victims.

The Leadership Council’s Examination of the Rind Meta-analysis
The Leadership Council completed its review of a controversial study that purported to show that children are rarely harmed by sex abuse by adults.  http://www.leadershipcouncil.org/1/rind/1.html

Rind et al.’s main Conclusions do not stand up to scientific scrutiny
The following scholarly papers have examined Rind et al.’s meta-analysis and called into question their paper’s methodology and/or conclusions.  http://www.leadershipcouncil.org/1/rind/crtc.html

The Leadership Council’s Analysis of Rind et al. (1998)
They also reported that “consenting” boys show no evidence of harm and often have positive reactions to sex with adults.
http://www.leadershipcouncil.org/1/rind/1.html#LC

Dallam, S. J., Gleaves, D. H., Cepeda-Benito, A., Silberg, J., Kraemer, H. C., & Spiegel, D. (2001). The Effects of Child Sexual Abuse: Comment on Rind, Tromovitch, and Bauserman (1998). Psychological Bulletin, 127, 715-733.
Our analysis found that the study by Rind et al. was seriously flawed. In fact, we found the paper was a stacked deck of poor population and study selection, misreported data and misrepresented findings that led to faulty conclusions. http://www.leadershipcouncil.org/docs/Dallam2001.pdf

The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) has praised the study by Rind et al., saying it confirms that “the current war on boy-lovers has no basis in science.” http://www.leadershipcouncil.org/1/rind/1.html#LC

Controversial Study Defending Child Molesters Is Debunked
Leading Mental Health Experts Charge that “Bad” Science is being used to Justify Exploiting Children
http://www.leadershipcouncil.org/1/rind/pr.html
The newly published scientific critique shows that the study conducted by Rind contains fundamental flaws that are an embarrassment to science, according to a team of researchers from Stanford University, Texas A&M University, and the Leadership Council, a scientific organization comprised of leaders in the fields of psychology and psychiatry. Rind’s paper was a stacked deck of poor population and study selection, misreported data, and misrepresented findings that inevitably led to the wrong conclusions,” says Dr. David Spiegel , co-author of the new study. Spiegel is the Associate Chair of the Stanford University School of Medicines Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences.

1989: Bauserman’s first scholarly publication “Man-Boy Sexual Relationships in a Cross-Cultural Perspective.” was published in Paidika: The Journal of Paedophilia. The stated purpose of the journal is to legitimize pedophilia (see “Statement of Purpose,” [1987]. Paidika: The Journal of Pedophilia, 1, pp, 2-3 ). The paper consists of a historical examination of the function of man-boy sexual relationships. Bauserman (1989) concludes that these relationships have traditionally provided boys with positive male role models and teachers.
September 1998: The International Pedophile and Child Emancipation (IPCE) newsletter [see link 14] includes an announcement for a Dutch conference titled “De Andere Kant van de Medaille” or “The Other Side of the Coin.”  Rind, Tromovitch and Bauserman are listed as the keynote speakers. The purpose of the conference is to shed light on the positive side of sex between adults and children.

McMartin Preschool Case – What Really Happened and the Coverup

The Dark Tunnels of McMartin – Dr. Roland C. Summit
Dr. Stickel’s report (p.95) concludes: There is no other scenario that fits all of the facts except that the feature was indeed a tunnel. The date of the construction and use of the tunnel was not absolutely established, but an assessment of seven factors of data all indicate that it was probably constructed, used and completely filled back in after 1966 (the construction date of the preschool). This age assessment has also been corroborated by the consulting Geologist for the project, Dr. Don Michael.
