    more than anything else about this is that also the rethugs and the fundies say they were afraid of being called gay-bashers, that, in fact, is what they are because they are conflating his predation to his being gay.  But, it is just as easy for a 54 year old man to  go after a 16 year old girl.  It has nothing to do with gay or straight.  It is a mental aberration and psychological disorder.
    Cops using these stings on the internet are picking up multitudes of adult men who want to have sex with pubescent girls.
    Also, Hunter, I agree with you.  This guy claims he was abused and as you say, lives are destroyed.  He is an intelligent guy who knows what he has suffered, why the hell would anyone knowingly pass that kind of suffering on to someone else.  He and the other abusers who have been through the same thing should be the last to abuse others and in so many cases, they are the perps.  Mental health professionals say that one never progresses emotionally beyond the age they were when they were abused as children or teens.  Evidently, Foley is still 15.
    He is claiming he NEVER had sex with an underage person.  I find that very, very hard to believe and now that all these pages are coming forward, maybe we shall find out if that is true or not.  The problem is, as in the Catholic Church, it took years and years and years for people to come to terms with what happened to them.  Just as Foley says today happened to him.
    Everyone is a loser in this situation.  Innocent kids most of all and parents who try so hard to protect their children and the people they should be able to trust more than others often are they ones they can never trust.
