There is a very interesting post over at the TPM Cafe website on James Dobson’s officially released statement regarding “Foleygate”. In short, when a Republican is caught soliciting underage Congressional interns for homosexual encounters, it’s the fault of the “oversexualization of American society” but when a Democrat has concensual sex with an adult, it’s simply the shameful moral failure of that individual.
It would be interesting to see how Dobson would react if there were Democrat leaders in Congress who knowingly turned a blind eye to a fellow Democrat’s soliciting of underage boys for homosexual encounters. Because right now, he doesn’t seem to have a problem with this same behaviour on the other side of the aisle. You gotta feel for Jimmy D. It’s difficult speaking truth to power when your own crusade for power and influence get’s in the way.
I’m just really relieved that Dobson isn’t that influential with Christians in the United States.
