    from the Athens News:

    Strickland said at the time of the vote that he could not in good conscience support the resolution, because it declared that anyone who has had a childhood sexual relationship with an adult can never have a healthy and loving sexual relationship in later life, and is likely to become a sexual abuser him- or herself.

    The congressman has argued that this is unfair to victims, and rules out the possibility of healing. He has also questioned, as a trained psychologist, whether most of his House colleagues even understood the specialized study they voted to condemn.

    Oh, and:

    When U.S. Rep. Ted Strickland's Republican opponent tried in 2000 to make a campaign issue out of Strickland's vote on a controversial House resolution about child sexual abuse, Strickland went after his attacker legally and won sanctions against him.

    Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief... You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.
