Time magazine's controversial cover story on "gay teens" is being denounced by critics as blatant homosexual propaganda which is not surprising, since the Time journalist who researched and wrote the story is a homosexual with a long history of advancing "gay" causes, including the promotion of anonymous homosexual orgies.
In its Oct. 10 cover story, "The battle over gay teens," <http://www.time.com/time/archive/preview/0,10987,1112856,00.html> Time fails to disclose that its reporter, John Cloud, is himself homosexual, nor does Cloud mention until near the end of his lengthy report that the key researcher on which the entire story is based is also homosexual.
In the article, Cloud positively portrays the phenomenon of ever-younger American children self-identifying as "gay," praises the massive proliferation of Gay Straight Alliance clubs in public schools nationwide, showcases the Point Foundation, which provides scholarships to youngsters who believe they are "gay," and categorically dismisses professional therapeutic and religious attempts to help homosexuals change their orientation.
Cloud's key expert throughout the Time cover story is Ritch Savin-Williams, chairman of Cornell University's human development department and author of a new book called "The New Gay Teenager." Not until near the close of the article does Cloud slip in the fact that Savin-Williams is "a 56-year-old gay man with a slightly elfish mien."
Cloud's piece is particularly derisive of reparative therapy psychiatric, psychological and religious efforts to help homosexuals change their sexual orientation. "It's important to note," Cloud asserts, "that nearly all mental-health professionals agree that trying to reject one's homosexual impulses will usually be fruitless and depressing."
But Stephen Bennett, <http://www.sbministries.org> a high-profile ex-gay, says, "This article is filled with tons of misinformation, mocking of Bible-believing Christians, of people who have come out of homosexuality such as myself and who are happily married now."
And one of the nation's key professional organizations involved in reparative therapy NARTH, the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality, headed by psychologist Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D. isn't surprised Cloud's latest article is biased against it.
"In past Time articles," notes NARTH's website, <http://www.narth.com/docs/history.html> "Cloud has promoted gay political attacks against the Boy Scouts, portrayed transgender activists as a new oppressed minority group; wrote approvingly of anonymous gay sex orgies for an alternative newspaper in Washington, D.C.; and earlier had penned a guide to gay bathhouses in Washington, D.C."
Indeed, in the May 9, 1997, edition of the Washington City Paper, a homosexual publication, Cloud authored a piece called "The Naked City" in which he described his first-hand experiences at a Washington, D.C., group-sex party for homosexuals.
While such blatant advocacy on Time's part has provoked outrage, it also plays a central role in advancing the radical "gay rights" agenda, says David Kupelian, who dramatically exposes the sophisticated homosexual propaganda machine in his new book, "The Marketing of Evil." <http://shop.wnd.com/store/item.asp?ITEM_ID=1679>
"When it comes to homosexuality and gay rights, most Americans simply have no idea what hit them," said Kupelian. In the book's opening chapter, "I unveil all of the amazing techniques and strategies radical 'gay rights' marketers have used over the last 15 years to utterly transform Americans' views toward homosexuality.
"An absolutely vital part of that marketing campaign," Kupelian adds, "is played by the not-so- 'mainstream media,' including Time."
EDITOR'S NOTE: In an Internet exclusive, today's edition of WorldNetDaily includes the entire first chapter of "The Marketing of Evil" which reveals as never before exactly how the radical "gay rights" agenda is being sold to Americans.
Read Chapter 1 of "The Marketing of Evil" titled "Marketing Blitz: Selling 'Gay Rights' to America." <http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=46887>
