Foley Follies Dr. Michael L. Ford 4 October 2006 Let me set something straight at the outset. I am disgusted both by homosexuality and pedophilia. It is very clear from any sound reading of the Scripture that God is too! Such things are abominations! Now that I have said that, let us get on to some other matters that are equally unethical. That is the cover ups. If people knew Representative Mark Foley was indulging verbally molesting Congressional pages, making obscene comments and suggestions to them, they are guilty of gross immoral and unethical behavior, because they condoned his sinful actions. Not only that, those people who are trying to make political capital out of the situation are also to be blamed because their own behavior is equally reprehensible and hypocritical. The very people who have busily attacked Foley and others have continued to condone openly homosexual Barney Frank in their midst for seventeen years now after it was exposed his male hooker boyfriend was running a bisexual prostitution ring out of Frank’s apartment. I could chronicle the number of times people on the side of the aisle that is now trying to make political capitol have been found morally and ethically wanting but I am limited in the space I have set aside for the current comments. A number of years ago I knew a homosexual man who recounted to me he had attended some Washington parties that included people we had elected to public office. He told me of their disgusting shenanigans at one party in particular. It was sickening to hear of such things and the idea that these kinds of people managed to obtain such high offices of trust in the land was disheartening to say the least. Curiously enough the attendees were not limited to one political party, but the majority of the names he recalled were not from the party now under fire. So what is my point since I have tarred some in both sets with the same brush? I certainly do not excuse the actions of the recently exposed, but I also condemn the hypocrisy. The other day I heard a person say it seems the actions of liberals are to be condoned and the same or similar actions in conservatives are to be condemned. No it only seems that way. Sin is sin!
