While filling in for Washington Watch host Tony Perkins on Tuesday, Southern Baptist Convention official Richard Land and guest Donna Rice Hughes of the anti-pornography group Enough Is Enough agreed that sexual abuse causes homosexuality.

Land, lifting from the anti-gay myth that gay adults abuse children at high rates and “recruit” them into homosexuality, charged that “the dirty little secret that nobody wants to talk about is that a high percentage of adult male homosexuals in America were sexually molested when they were children.”

Land’s claim contradicts findings of the American Psychological Association, which notes that “no specific psychosocial or family dynamic cause for homosexuality has been identified, including histories of childhood sexual abuse. Sexual abuse does not appear to be more prevalent in children who grow up to identify as gay, lesbian, or bisexual, than in children who identify as heterosexual.”

He has previously claimed that gay people are Satanic pawns who are seeking the “full-blown paganization” of America.
