Moral Panic in Massachusetts?
Irvine -- The tragic killing of a 10-year-old Cambridge boy allegedly by
the two purported male lovers is not only sparking demands for the return
of the death penalty but outrage at a gay group, NAMBLA, whose literature
was allegedly found among one defendent's belongings. According to its
literature, NAMBLA advocates lowering the age of consent and supports
consensual relationships between men and boys. "Subversity," a KUCI public
affairs show, Tuesday evening delves into this controversy with an
interview with NAMBLA spokesman Bill Andriette, who himself joined the
organization when he was just 15. Subversity airs from 5-6 p.m. on KUCI,
88.9 FM in Orange County.
Andriette, who was interviewed by radio show host David Brudnoy last week
in Boston, has appeared on the CNN's Larry King Show defending NAMBLA
during an earlier controversy. On Subversity, he will address the topic,
"Moral Panic in Massachusetts?" and discuss the role of gay groups in the
controversy. Andriette will be interviewed by show host Daniel C.
Listeners can call (714) 824-KUCI to chat with Andriette, who was until
last year, the long-time editor of the NAMBLA Bulletin. To read for
yourself what its literature says, you can check out its Website, now
