Maybe it’s just a coincidence.
At least, that is what it would have to be if we believe the homosexual community’s cry that there is no link between their sexual inclinations and paedophilia.
I’m referring to the name of South Australia’s gay news publication: Blaze.
It’s a funny title for a gay magazine. Especially considering that gay publications like to publish under lewd banners and names full of sexual innuendo.
That’s because the Woods Royal Commission found that the word ‘Blaze’ is closely associated with paedophilia. In fact, the Royal Commission records that it stands for Boy Lovers and Zucchini Eaters.
In 1997, the Woods Royal Commission published its report into paedophilia. It stated:
3.94 In the 1980s, the Paedophile Support Group in Victoria known as PSG was disbanded following action by the Victoria Police Delta Task Force. A former member of the PSG, Mr Emu Nugent, Commission witness D1, and several other paedophiles met in Sydney in the mid-1980s to form a similar group. In approximately 1987, this group adopted the title BLAZE.
3.95 It produced a publication called The BLAZE Bulletin which promoted man/boy sex and support for men who had sex with boys. It claimed:
BLAZE is committed to supporting all boy lovers wherever and whoever they are and our magazine may help you to bring a little help and strength to those friends of ours who are lonely or simply scared of being found out, even though they might be some of the most loving and least harmful people in the world.
3.96 The BLAZE Bulletin was used as a vehicle to report on, and involve others in, attempts to legalise paedophile activity, or sexual relationships between adults and children, most particularly men with boys.
3.97 Some members of BLAZE became particularly involved in writing to Government with research statistics in support of legislative change. Mr Nugent did not agree with this approach so he and D1 established a shop in Glebe, the Children’s Liberation Railway where pamphlets and posters were produced proclaiming:
We are a commune for children’s rights, activists, a place for young people escaping from homes, institutions, parents, schools. Stay with us. Join our struggle for children’s rights.
Two of the ‘rights’ promoted were:
Our rights to enjoy our own bodies and to choose who we love and have sex with;
No laws that punish voluntary relationships.
3.98 These views are views shared by paedophiles both within BLAZE and other organisations such as the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) in England, the North American Boy Lovers Association (NAMBLA), the Boy Lover Network, the Rene Guyon Society (with its infamous motto ‘Sex before eight, or it’s too late’) and the Lewis Carroll Collectors Guild.
3.99 Some of these associations are quite brazen in their lobbying and promotion of paedophile activity and their potential influence has been enhanced by the Internet. They are potentially dangerous, if for no reason other than the group support and ‘legitimacy’ they encourage.
Those findings are concerning. And it’s also concerning that a gay news magazine brazenly publishes under a name so intimately associated with paedophilia.
But, like I said, it could just be a coincidence.
It could also just be a coincidence that the Gay News Network, the online publisher of Blaze, is currently advertising an event called “Boys Own Charity Bike Off”.
It features an image of a young male – he looks about 14 – wearing a bow tie and very tight underwear. With nothing else. And he’s holding a cake.
At the very least, assuming this is just a coincidence, the Gay News Network and Blaze should apologise to victims of paedophilia for publishing under a name that is associated with this form of sexual perversion. And the name should be changed.
But, considering the homosexual community so proudly and brazenly dragged children along to watch the filth on display at the Mardi Gras, I won’t be holding my breath.
