Sometimes there’s just not enough indignation to go around.
Mike Mathias of Pundit Nation launches into blogger Dad29 for the following:
“The story stinks. There are all sorts of timeline contradictions.
What’s important here are two facts:
1) Reynolds is homosexual 2) Pedophilia/pederasty is THE preferred route for homosexual gratification.
Since the MC’s knew Reynolds was a homosexual, ANY hint of “friendliness” towards an underage male should have set off the fire alarms. “
(Where Dad29 says “Reynolds,” he means to say “Foley.”)
What I do know is that the closet corrupts. The lies it requires and the compartmentalization it demands can lead people to places they never truly wanted to go, and for which they have to take ultimate responsibility. From what I’ve read, Foley is another example of this destructive and self-destructive pattern for which the only cure is courage and honesty.
So the difference is that Dad29 believes pederasty is a preference inherent in homosexuality, while gay activist Andrew Sullivan believes pederasty is an uncontrollable impulse inherent in repressed homosexuals. Dad29 at least believes that the homosexual is responsible for his behavior, so I think it fair to say he has a higher opinion of homosexuals than Andrew Sullivan.
