Bennett, 43, offered the following comments today on the news that Rep. Foley was molested as a child:
"My heart breaks for this man who has been living a double life for all of these years due to homosexual molestation. We deal with situations like this every day here at SBM. What is sad to say, is many times the child who is molested by another individual of the same sex -- becomes the 'molester' later on in life. He or she tries to relive those sexual experiences, even as traumatic as the may have been, because of the pleasure. When fantasy and pornography in their adult life no longer satisfies, these individuals feel the need to go for the real thing: children and teens."
Stephen continued, "Former Rep. Foley's story is so tragically typical - the molested can become the molester. Yes, there are those who can deal with the trauma and make it through. However, we have to stop worrying about being 'politically correct' in the media regarding homosexuality and finally deal with the truths and facts that homosexual molestation (and heterosexual) of children can and does produce future homosexual men and women. It robs children of their childhood and in many cases, destroys their lives. I've personally dealt with so many homosexual individuals whose lives have been ruined because of childhood molestation - but the great news is they don't have to be 'by-products' or victims of their childhood. These individuals can be 'victors' and not 'victims.' Change IS completely possible. For former Rep. Foley and so many others, there is help -- and there is HOPE."
Stephen is available to provide expert commentary on the Foley story in regard to homosexual molestation, as well as former NJ Governor McGreevey and share many other true accounts - even the story of a man molested who was jailed for molesting little boys, and hanged himself. He could no longer control his desires to molest boys and instead took his own life.
