A second charge of sodomy and sexual abuse has been filed against prominent “gay”-rights activist and Democratic Party fundraiser Terry Bean, a founder of the Human Rights Campaign.

Only days ago, the paper said, Bean’s attorneys had reached an agreement with the first accuser, a 15-year-old boy alleging abuse in 2013, that could result in dismissal of the case.
But Healy objects to Bean’s proposed civil settlement, the details of which have not been made public, and contends the alleged abuse in 1979 should be admissible at the trial, scheduled to begin Aug. 11.
Bean’s attorney, Derek Ashton of Portland, said in a statement, “We look forward to the hearing next week and an end to this defamation.”
The second allegation comes from a doctor in California who told police in January he was 16 when he began a sexual relationship with Bean in 1979 when Bean lived in Eugene.
Healy did not return a request by WND for comment.
‘One after another’
The Eugene paper noted Bean was first recognized for his activism in the 1970s when he helped persuade the Eugene City Council to pass an ordinance barring discrimination based on sexual orientation.
Scott Lively, known for his opposition to the “gay”-rights agenda, was communications director for an activist group that proposed ballot measures in the early 1990s to defend against the homosexual movement.
He told WND in an interview the Bean case fits a pattern.
“This is very common,” he said. “We see gay-activist leaders, one after another, being accused, sometimes charged, with pederasty – adult male homosexuality with teenage boys.”
Among them are San Francisco LGBT icon Larry Brinkin, Duke University professor Frank Lombard and Walter Lee Williams, professor of gender studies at the University of Southern California.
Lively, head of the non-profit Abiding Truth Ministries in Springfield, Massachusetts, noted Bean’s Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s leading homosexual-rights group, named him LGBT Global Public Enemy No. 1, in part for saying that many homosexual men are pederasts.
Oregon voters, Lively said, could have “stopped the LGBT agenda dead in its tracks” in 1992 by supporting the ballot measures he promoted.
He pointed out that prosecutors allege regarding the 2013 charge that Bean paid the victim $40 after the encounter and encouraged the boy to join a support group for “gay” youths.
“I have alleged for many years that these LGBT youth groups are really not much more than grooming center for predators, and this supports that allegation,” Lively told WND.
In the early 1990s, he said, when he worked with the Oregon Citizens Alliance, there was a lot of talk about centers in which young people from ages 12-24 were mixing, along with adult chaperons.
“These are people who identify themselves by their interest in same-sex attraction, and their lives are defined by sexuality,” Lively said. “So it’s a little different than a normal group with adult chaperons that don’t have that particular proclivity.”
Could this be the next goal of the gay lobby, to lower the age of consent? It may be, but it will never be lowered enough, because there will always be those who want the thrill of the illegality of sex with underage children. And there will always be those whose real motivation is the destruction of innocence - pedophiles. And there is a fine line of distinction between the two.
The Willamette Week newspaper reported last year that Bean had raised more money to support President Obama than any other Oregonian.
According to the charging document, Bean and his then-boyfriend, Kiah Lawson of Junction City, met the 15-year-old victim on Sept. 27, 2013, through a popular smartphone application for homosexuals called Grindr.
The Willamette Week reported allegations Lawson had attempted to extort money from Bean after finding Bean videoed sexual encounters with other men with a hidden camera.
Bean’s lawyer Ashton claimed in a statement that “for almost two years, Terry Bean has been the victim of Kiah Lawson’s schemes and lies, which have led law enforcement to harass Mr. Bean’s friends, seek out old acquaintances and threaten him with further prosecution unless he admits to events that did not occur.”
