It isn’t gonna work guys. Not this time. You can spin til you vomit, but you can’t change the COLD HARD FACTS. Prominent Republicans in all positions including the Speaker of the House and the House Majority Leader KNEW about Representative Mark Foley and his “problem”. NO ONE chose to do the right thing for fear that it would cost the Republicans politically. NO ONE chose to protect the young Pages entrusted to them, but EVERYONE chose to protect their own behinds. YOU ALL chose to look the other way for years. And if that is not clear enough, let me put it another way: When it came to doing the RIGHT thing, you failed. You showed us all what was really important and it certainly was not those kids.So to the damage control crew, which includes, but is not confined exclusively to these people: Newt Gingrich, Ben Stein of the American Spectator, Linda Harvey of WorldNetDaily, Jonah Goldberg of the National Review, The Wall Street Journal editorialist who wrote this, Tammy Bruce the political analyst, Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy In Media, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, and the many more (too many to name): KNOCK IT OFF. It isn't about "the Gay". Intelligent folks know better. You are basically singin to the choir and they listen because they are BIG HOMOPHOBES and they are always looking for ways to blame everything on the gays.
So let’s look at the statistics for pedophiles and homosexuality since you all seem so abnormally obsessed with all things gay (put your Thinking Caps on so you can grasp this):
The Journal of the American Medical Association found that 90 percent of pedophiles are men, and that 98 percent of those men are heterosexual. (Holmes, W.C. and Slap, G.B. (1998). "Sexual Abuse of Boys: Definition, Prevalence, Correlates, Sequelae and Management." Journal of the American Medical Association. 280 (21): 1855-1862.)
And then there is this scientific peer-reviewed journal, "Pediatrics" published in July of 1994. This study was done by Dr. Carole Jenny of the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. The subjects were 269 sexually abused children seen at Denver Children's Hospital over the course of one year.
Here is what they found:
*1 in 219 girls was molested by a lesbian * 1 out of 50 boys by a gay male.*About 8 in 10 girls were molested by a man who was or had been in a heterosexual relationship with the child's mother or another relative. *3 out of 4 boys were abused by males in heterosexual relationships with female relatives.
2% of the boys in the study were molested by gay males.
98% of the boys in the study were molested by heterosexuals. Of that number, 75% were molested by heterosexual males KNOWN TO THE VICTIMS in an incestuous scenario.
0.05% of the girls in the study were molested by a lesbian.
99.5% of the girls in the study were molested by heterosexuals. Of that number, 80% were molested by heterosexual males KNOWN TO THE VICTIMS in an incestuous scenario.
SO COULD YOU SHUT THE HELL UP, TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT YOU'VE DONE AND "HAVEN'T DONE", TAKE YOUR LUMPS, AND GO FAR AWAY AND THINK ABOUT WHY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE HAD IT WITH ALL OF YOU FLAMING HYPOCRITES. OK?
