While Mr. Foley may have propositioned underage boys for sexual favors, it only highlights the fact that:
1. Because homosexuality is such a taboo in America, one may feel he/she has to go "underage" because they know if they went after adults, it would be called sexual harassment. Not that it makes it ok, but it might explain his actions. Still very wrong!
2. As a lesbian, I was accused by my own sisters, of being a sexual deviant and was not allowed near my nephews, as if "gayness" is catching! Please. I am not a pedophile and would never even think like that.
To be painted as a pedophile and have it linked to homosexuality is just grandstanding on the part of the fundamentalists because they know they are losing this fight. Hitler did the same thing with the Jews, painting them as killers of Christ. Stand firm, we will win this fight. Foley has his own problems and we need to pray for him, but this isn't about his homosexuality. It is about his integrity as an elected official.
