murdered in prison? Egads...sure puts it all in a different light. I don't understand the whole 'pedophile' thing going on with regards to Foley...I would label it inappropriate..maybe sexual exploitation. But, if he were to have abuse in his backround it would certainly explain his lack of boundaries.
now he says he molested as young boy.....sounds like nothing but excuses from a member of the party that refuses to accept responsibility for anything they have done. It's just another attempt to shift the blame.
17. interrupting a vote when sober (or was he drinking in Congress ?)
doesn't fit in that pattern

"last minute Hail Mary" is TRUE?
Look, my hubby went through 12 years Catholic School and 4 years College.
I've heard all the stories from him...but the guys he knew had "codes" for the "Brothers" that they thought were "maybe." They used to do "wooooooo..." in low tones whenever Brother So and So came near and started to do a "rub." This is back before your time when kids were MUCH MORE innocent...
I've heard all the horror stories and my hubby never could understand why he wasn't allowed to be an Alter Boy because his Navy Officer Dad who was a practicing Catholic refused to let him do it. Now my hubby thinks his DAD was trying to protect him...just in case...
Anyway I think this Foley "last minute" cop out that a "Priest Made me Do it" is Crap. It's just too convenient, selfserving and obvious. He's a very happy powerful guy to have some last minute "Epiphany" when he got "caught out."
There are too many whose lives were ruined and who have been so scarred they couldn't hold jobs because of what the errant Priests did to them...for me to have sympathy with this 52 year old guy with his Beemer and taking guys to Morton's and doing I'ming while masterbating....Sheesh.
He had some time to go get some therapy if he was so scarred. But, he doesn't seem to have "suffered" until now. JMHO...
He's just wanting attention and people to feel sorry for him instead of his victims. He's a republican. He's not going to take responsibility for his actions. He's going to blame EVERYONE ELSE. :grr: Duckie
