    We can hope all of this awakens the brain dead in this country.  Using religion to persecute gays is really bad.  Using religion to divide this country ought to be a crime.  It isn't that anyone really takes pleasure in someone else's pain.  It is that sometimes karma just plain ol' works and gets the right target.

      GOPers will tell us in their stern daddy-tones that gayness is wrong and evil and we should beware it and seek to cure those who are afflicted with it.  But it's OK to do it if you're a powerful Republican and you keep it to yourself.  According to the GOP, the real error of Mark Foley is that he got caught.  According to the Religious Right, his real crime is that he was queer.

      From outside of those two self-serving frames the crime is best described as an abuse of power and an act of unmitigated hypocritical gall.
