My adoptive dad abused me for years but social workers ignored my complaints because he's gay
Daily Mail ^ | 3/28/2013 | Steve Robson

Posted on 03/28/2013 4:16:27 PM PDT by markomalley

A boy sexually abused by his adoptive father and his gay partner was labelled an ‘unruly child’ by social workers who ignored his complaints for years, a damning report has revealed.

They sent Andy Cannon, now 23, back to the couple’s home despite his protests of abuse, praising the gay man who adopted him as a ‘very caring parent’.

The report accuses Wakefield social services, in Yorkshire, of ‘folly and gross misjudgment’. Mr Cannon, who was wrongly diagnosed with mental disorders and prescribed anti-psychotic drugs, believes he would have been listened to sooner if his adoptive father wasn’t gay.

The case ended last year, after half a decade of legal wrangling, when a court ordered a £25,000 compensation payment to Mr Cannon.

Mr Cannon, now a father of two himself, was adopted by David Cannon in 1997.

He and his mother, Elaine Moss, repeatedly complained to social workers about the abuse. In 2004, he was returned to Cannon’s care nine days after running away and making a complaint about him.

Cannon, 54, and his 31-year-old partner John Scarfe were each jailed for 30 months in May 2006 for inciting sexual activity with a child.

Mr Cannon said: ‘I believe if my adoptive dad was in a heterosexual relationship then my complaints would have been listened to earlier.

Didn’t like the way he was being reared.

Once I was talking to some relatives about some jerk in the news who had been abusing boys.
When I referred to the person as "gay" they answered, "he's not gay, he's a pedophile."

It dawned on me what an effective job the media had done in brainwashing us.

Hey, who are we to say that raping an adopted child is wrong? How judgmental! Only a rabid Christian would impose such a radical belief on others! /lib”think” /sadly not sarc

No one mentions in adoption, that homosexuals, besides liking young males being a problem, the biggest problem of all is that homosexuals are already starting at a place of low morality, of an indifference to God and conventional rules and social limits.

For a homosexual potential parent, the moment they walk in the door of the application office, they are already outside the boundaries of good parenting, are already established and verified to be overly tolerant of abhorrent behavior and practices, before any basic background check and routine investigation is even needed.

This is still going on today.

I talked to a Social Worker just the other day, that just so happens to be a Christian, and she related the story of another Social Worker, whose son was gay, who ignored the pleadings of a little boy placed with gay “parents”.

It is disgusting, it is unfair, it is unjust, and it is criminal.

It leaves you feeling like you’d like to take an ugly stick to both the Social Worker and the perverts attempting to turn that child into one of them.

You are so right.

Already, in the eyes of God, they are nothing short of criminals.

Disgusting. THIS is the near future of the US, and it will be covered up by our media. My prayers go out to this kid. I hope when he’s grown, he hunts down these two sick perverts and cuts their throats.

Hey we need the gays, they started AIDS and the Nazi Party, and infiltrated the church to discredit and bring it down. Just like the hippie generation that’s destroying this country.

In the 90s I was involved with the Episcopal Church in and around San Francisco. I was a delegate to the Diocesan Council. The gays at the time were trying year after year to get their own marriage ceremony as an addition to the Book of Common Prayer’s list of services.
Their reasoning was that the Bible had been mistranslated. Instead of the Bible condemning homosexuality they insisted that it had been meant to say pedophilia was the bad thing! This allows them to be on the same footing in their eyes as other Christians and means they should have the same rights.

Did you get a chance to ask whether a man who molests young girls is straight? Because logically, they seem to be saying that there are basically 3 sexual orientations: gay, straight, and pedophile.

A homosexual is someone attracted to those of the same sex. It doesn't matter how old. Thus a man who molests young boys is a homosexual pedophile, while a man who molests young girls is a heterosexual pedophile.

Also, most of these molestations appear to involve teen boys, not pre-adolescents. Adult men who seduce teenage girls are not called pedophiles. It's not considered odd that a twenty-something guy is sexually attracted to a sixteen year old girl. That's why fathers tend to try to keep their teenage daughters away from being alone with older guys.

Similarly, an adult gay man WILL be sexually attracted to teenage boys, and should be kept away from boys.

There is a reason that the word SODOMY has existed for almost 3 thousand years.

The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah are what we have become.

God will get us for that.

And the sodomites will drag us down their hell hole vortex right along with them.

I don’t believe gay couples should be adopting children. With that said, I don’t see this a pox against gay people, but rather against these incompetent government agencies. When you give a government the power to judge who is and who isn’t a fit parent, you get situations like these. Since this was reported in the Daily Mail, I am going to assume that this happened across the pond, but it happens here in the States too. Children are almost always placed back into abusive homes and removed from good ones.

Well, it’s just logical that if they’re going to redefine pedophilia away from homosexuality, we’ll have to define it away from heterosexuality too. But they’re fooling themselves. Many adults like young partners (or victims) and it seems to align with their sexual preference. If someone molests small children, boys and girls, indiscriminately, I suppose we can agree he is a pedophile (or better yet, a corpse.) But if a man who has adult male partners also enjoys young boys, I don’t see how anyone can deny the facts of the situation.

Gays want to adopt babies thinking they will provide the unconditional love they never got anywhere else in life, even if it means queering a child who would otherwise be straight. Get a dog.

Can a single heterosexual male adopt a female baby? Can a single homosexual male adopt a boy? Scary questions aren’t they? This is where it is all going. Children commoditized for the wants of an emotionally adolescent culture.

There are many cases of either one or both gay partners sexually abusing their (male) adopted children but you'll never see these cases in the MSM.

I happen to spend many hours a day surfing criminal court arraignment sites around this country and reading the judicial summaries of some of these charges is sickening!
Anybody who still supports homosexual adoptions should have their heads examined. Someone has to investigate just how many of these adoptions end with the so-called parents being dragged into criminal court while the child(s) life is ruined!

Amazing isn’t it?

Homosexual coupling does not produce children!! So what do we do? We mass produce them by other means!!

God tried logic and natural law - but we are just too stupid to accept his rules.

In a few generations no child will know whose DNA he or she has; how many half siblings he or she might have. The end of heterosexual marriages as we know it.

Five fallible humans on the SCUTUS can say the moon is made of green cheese, or 2+2=5, but they can't make them true. Or they can say runaway slaves must be captured and returned to their slave masters. (They did say that once.) They can even call homosexual couples a so-called same-sex marriage.

But they can't make an unnatural couple into a natural marriage. Sorry, homosexuals, but you can never have a NATURAL marriage. It will always be unnatural, no matter what five out of nine El Supremos decide.

I got into an argument with a gal at the gym over the exact thing.

She just couldn't make the connection that an adult male having sex with a male child is a homosexual. To her, a male pedophile was not a homosexual........
