How come when Gerry Studds was having real live ups the ass sex with a 17 yo page the newspapers didn't say anything?

Here's my reply:

Back in 1982, 20 years before the Catholic Church boy rape scandal broke in 2002, The movie "Airplane! The Sequel" featured a sight gag about a Catholic Priest reading a magazine called "Altar Boy" and checking out the centerfold.

A review of the movie on Amazon may provide the answer you are looking for:

"Back in the early 80s, it was still possible to do mild gags about paedophilia (not only Graves's chumminess with the cute kid who visits the cockpit, but also the priest looking at the centerfold of "Altar Boy" magazine)."

Times change.

But boy fucking is still as much a punchline today as it was then, isn't it?

I think it's hysterical that Mark Foley broke NO laws, but yet the smear machine, that the Rebumblicans have spent the last 25 years building to destroy people, and institutions, has been turned against them in the way it has in this case.

Couldn't happen to a nicer group of people.

And I mean that in the nicest way. :-)

Can't write this shit.

Too funny.

It's a knee-slapper.

I work with a Republican, and when this story broke I had to "call out laughing" just so I wouldn't get fired, or beat up, at work for being unable to help myself from laughing in the dude's face.

Y'know, if maybe you guys weren't so fucked up in the head, and repressive around the subject of sex, so many guys like Mark Foley wouldn't exist in our society.

It's called being "hoisted by your own petards" and reaping what you sow.

Until you're willing to have a GROWN-UP conversation about sex in this country, and that means NOT hounding The Surgeon General out of her post when she tries to initiate a public health conversation about masturbation, then this isn't, and won't be the last time, you're gonna buy yourselves a scandal like this.

BTW, there was a Republican that got busted fucking a *female* page at the same time Studds was fucking that boy and he got censured too, only, unlike Studds, he wasn't re-elected.

Boo-hoo on you.

Now run along, boy, and get out the vote!

"There aren't a lot of things in this world that one can be sure of, but I do know this; anytime you go by a House of Worship, of any size, and of any denomination, that's filled to its rafters with people, you can be certain that the vast majority of those people haven't actually taken the time out to read The Bible, or whatever ancient, "Sacred Text" that they subscribe to, because if they had read it, that House of Worship would be nearly empty."
