further evidence that (former felon) charles colson is losing his mind
on charles colson and prison fellowships'* blog gina dalfonzo reminds us that the real tragedy of the mark foley scandal is not that he sought to sexually abuse young boys or that the republican leadership apparently overlooked such charges in order to sustain their political hegemony. nope, the real scandal is how the liberal media is using this scandal to bring down the god-fearing, flag waving, fag hating republican party.
i'm tempted to disagree with dalfonzo's assessment that i've posted below, but i'm sure that if we knew all the information that the republican leaders did about this scandal we would realize that their protection of foley and their counterspin against the "so called liberal media" was really in the best interests of god, country and, of course, homeland security.
"It's too early, I suppose, to know the whole truth for certain. At this stage, all we know is that it appears that someone knew something and kept quiet temporarily for reasons of their own. Until everything comes out -- and in this politically charged climate, maybe it never will -- should we say anything at all? Maybe not much, but I think there's at least one thing we can and should say with certainty. It used to go without saying among grown-ups that the exploitation of children and teenagers for any reason -- including wanting to retain power or wanting to overthrow those in power -- is a complete and utter disgrace. Apparently, it no longer does go without saying. Because whoever knew and withheld this information for their own purposes is morally just as guilty as Mark Foley."
