Its Official

Former Congressman Mark Foley is now an uncloseted gay man and a closted pedophile. His lawyer also announced he was molested. I thought gay activists claimed that molestation and pedophilia wasn't a part of their culture? Oh wait, not all gays are molested and not all gays are pedophiles.

While Foley is ultimately responsible for his own reprehensible conduct, it does reflect on the judgment of the American electorate who voted him into office, especially with the allegations of his homosexuality continuing to swirl about him. Our deeper problem is that we continue to believe that the personal sexual conduct of our elected officials is somehow immaterial to their ability to discharge their official duties with integrity.
