This should probably go without saying, but I need to say it lest anyone accuse me of not speaking up and being one sided.
I’m glad Mark Foley resigned. His perversion is deplorable and blatant hypocrisy is frightening. I don’t care what color his state is or whether he rides and elephant or a donkey, the right thing to do was to resign his position immediately, apologize to his victims and his constituents and possibly even be tried for his crimes. I do believe he should be forgiven, but only when he apologizes for his wrong doing. Alcoholism is not his problem; he is a homosexual pedophile and needs to repent of that, not some straw man “not-quite-as-bad-as-pedophilia” confessional.
Just goes to show you how easy the business of being a hypocrite has become.
