Lawmakers in Indiana have killed state tax funding for the institute launched by the late Alfred Kinsey, who used sex convicts and pedophiles to fabricate studies that he claimed showed children are sexual from birth.
Liberty Counsel founder Mat Staver, whose organization commented on the vote in Indiana, said, "Alfred Kinsey was a sexual pervert whose unscientific propaganda exploited women and harmed children. Kinsey should have been prosecuted for the vile abuse of children he cataloged in Table 34 of his first book published in 1948. His work is indefensible. Indiana University should disassociate itself from anything related to Alfred Kinsey."
The Liberty Counsel report said Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb recently signed a two-year budget bill which includes the defunding of Indiana University’s sexual research institute started by Kinsey.
"The methods Kinsey used were unethical, including sexual experiments and abuse on infants, and the statistically and scientifically fraudulent 'data' is derived from serial child rapists, sex offenders, prisoners, prostitutes, pedophiles, and pederasts," Liberty Counsel's report said.
HB 1001 specifies that taxpayer funds "may not be used to pay for the administration, operation, or programs of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction."
The decision came about after Rep. Lorissa Sweet introduced an amendment several weeks ago to defund the center, which was launched by Kinsey in 1947.
The report noted the House voted 53-34 to block state funding of the Kinsey Institute.
"By limiting the funding to Kinsey Institute through Indiana University’s tax dollars, we can be assured that we are not funding ongoing research committed by crimes," Sweet said at the time. "By doing such dastardly experiments on children, Kinsey ‘determined’ that children are sexual from birth, which is why our society now sexually exploits children at very young ages."
Among Kinsey's more egregious actions was that he used the journal of a child rapist "to record the rape of 196 children, which he referred to as 'pre-adolescent sex play.'"
While he admitted the children suffered "violent convulsions" and were "sobbing" during the attacks, he claimed the victims enjoyed the experiences, the report said.
The late Dr. Judith Reisman was a visiting professor at Liberty University School of Law and documented the criminal abuse of more than 300 infants and children in the production of Kinsey’s research. These children were ages two months to 15 years, the report said.
