NAMBLA, the North American Man/Boy Love Association, is an organization that advocates homosexual relations between men and boys of any age. This organization has been around for many years. I remember when "fanatics" like me tried to suggest that such thinking was the result of our society's decision to accept homosexuality as "normal." We were dismissed as over-reactionary.

Recently in Boston, two men kidnapped, sexually assaulted, and murdered a ten year old boy. Just before committing the murder, they had visited the NAMBLA web site. They were in possession of lots of NAMBLA literature.

Now the American Civil Liberties Union has stepped in to defend a $200 million federal civil rights lawsuit brought by the family of the boy against NAMBLA, calling it an important case for freedom of speech and association.

The following to stories indicate that we "fanatics" may have been onto something.
