I agree with what AA has had to say. This is disgusting and I think its almost as bad hearing religious people, other politicians, and the media trying to condone his actions. I actually listened to Rush Limbaugh try and blame Foley's actions on the Democrats, since Clinton had a sex scandal then the Democrats condone this behavior and thats why Foley did these actions...its the dems fault. Haha. I think its so funny that he is comparing a guy getting a sexual favor from an ADULT consenting woman to trying to have sex with underage boys.
While I do agree what Foley did was worse than Clinton, you do have to keep in mind that Clinton was married while Foley is not. If not for the kids being underage, I would say Clinton's actions were actually quite worse. But, they were underage so obviously that's terrible.
Oh, and this thread should be locked.
Adultery is worse the pedophilia???
May want to read what I wrote.
Its confusing you say Foley was Worse then clinton oh oh nevermind sorry that speed reading class I took must have some side effects.
What he said was that if Foley were writing those messages to, say, an 18 year old, then what Clinton did was worse.
Give me a break, I see a lot more Christians condemning homosexuality than adultery... that's because adultery is pretty widespread, regardless of your morals, political leanings or religion.
Do you take in to account the offices that Foley and Clinton were in? Clinton was the President of the US. Kids looked up to him, idolized him, wanted to be him. If the pages he solicited had been 18 years old, then yes I think Clinton's actions were far worse than a single gay guy hitting on an 18 year old boy.
Kids don't look up to presidents, they look up to basketball players... like Kobe Bryant. That has nothing to do with it. If the pages he solicited were 18, this likely would just be a scandal of him being gay, which is not illegal.... just like adultery. Offices have nothing to do with it. Personally, I would not care regardless if Foley were just gay or if Clinton just got a hummer in the Oval Office. But Foley is not just gay, he's a pedophile and even comparing him to Clinton, or the fact that perhaps Clinton's actions were far worse than Foley's provided the pages were 18 is both speculative and ridiculous.
I'm not out to make this personal, i see what you're saying, but I very much disagree.
