Mark Folley - a premeditated
By Lynne Miller
October 11, 2006
Predatory actions of grown adults are crafty indeed. Cloistering
one's self as priests, boy scout leaders, lawyers, doctors, U.S.
Congressmen, school teachers. Man, woman it makes no difference,
they choose to lurk in all areas of society. The common thread
however is not one of sexual orientation or political preference,
as is being so casually thrown out in the instance of Congressman
Foley, it is their desire to deceive under the guise of being
responsible, caring and concerned professionals entitled to have
ready access to unsuspecting innocent youths for suspect purposes.
It is NEVER okay to prey on children and the fact that a U.S.
Congressman did so while he chose to be co-chairman of
the U.S. House's Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children should
sicken every American, irregardless of political affiliation
and not be the incorrect impetus for turning this important issue
of predators and predatory actions into a discussion in regard
to political preference or sexual orientation. Who cares what
political party Mr. Foley represented. If he preyed upon children
that is his crime, not his being Republican or Democrat and surely
it has nothing to do with being homosexual. So Mr. Foley should
be held totally and completely responsible for his unacceptable
actions. In fact it is only through seeing him as the predator
he truly is that we understand why he did what he did and why
we should investigate fully and completely his entire political
career span to seek out any and all victims of his that may still
be unaccounted for. In addition anyone who knew specifically
about Mr. Foley AT ANY POINT in the process of his seeking out
teenage pages or other child victims should be held equally responsible.
The actions of the person or persons who cooperate with a child
predator by being their willing accomplice are just as unacceptably
damaging to innocent children.
