Satan Hides

Foley: I was a teenage victim
Says abuse by clergyman not to blame for explicit e-mails to pages

October 4, 2006
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Disgraced former Rep. Mark Foley said through his lawyer Tuesday that he was sexually abused by a clergyman as a teenager, but accepts responsibility for sending salacious computer messages to teen male pages.
Attorney David Roth said Foley was molested between ages 13 and 15. He declined to identify the clergyman or the church, but Foley is Roman Catholic.

“Look at poor me. I was a victim.” A victim of a conveniently anonymous predator. Translation: Feel sorry for me. It isn’t my responsibility.

He also acknowledged for the first time that the former congressman is gay, saying the disclosure was part of his client's ''recovery.''

''Mark Foley wants you to know he is a gay man,'' Roth said.

Oh that’s rich. “Feel sorry for me, as I am a member of a group that suffers prejudice.” Translation: I am so oppressed and stressed from having to hide my true identity from society that it drove me to want sex with teenage boys. Satan hides behind a victim’s mask.

What the hell does being gay have to do with soliciting a minor for sex? That is an insult to gay people. Just like checking into rehab is an insult to those with addiction problems. Being an alcoholic doesn’t change you into a child molester. It doesn’t make you into a suit and tie wearing monster. Satan knows how to dress well doesn’t he?

Former Rep. Mark Foley, R-Fla., resigned Friday in the wake of questions about e-mails he wrote a former teenage male page.

Foley ''does not blame the trauma he sustained as a young adolescent for his totally inappropriate e-mails'' and instant messages, Roth said. ''He continues to offer no excuse whatsoever for his conduct.''

Translation: Despite all my subtle disclosures of trauma to get you to feel sorry for me I will “take responsibility” just to show how sincere I am. Satan is good at hiding behind fake sincerity.

Foley represented parts of Palm Beach County for 12 years until he resigned Friday after being accused of sending lurid Internet messages to boys who served as pages on Capitol Hill.

The lawyer said Foley never had any inappropriate sexual contact with a minor.

Yeah. Right. He just fantasized about it and harassed teenage boys under his authority for years and years. I am sure he never actually had sex with anyone. Just like I am sure that living in a sewer doesn’t mean you smell like crap.

The communications were first reported last week by ABC News, which released more instant messages Tuesday that suggest Foley interrupted a vote on the House floor to have online sex.

As if his position of authority wasn’t enough. This bastard was actually co-chairman of the Congressional Missing and Exploited Children's Caucus. You know what that means?

Sharks like to swim in waters where the prey is plentiful.

It is amazing how these people get past so called security checks. However, when no one reports them, its not so amazing. When we care more about animal rights than kids’ rights we shouldn’t be surprised.

I promise you this. If we continue to neglect our kids, gangs will only prosper. And so will violence.

Because gang leaders don’t neglect them. They seek them out. So do child molesters and other monsters. These monsters never look like monsters. Satan hides behind a mask.

Now this Foley thing is more about politics and people getting elected than anything about kids too. Both parties are using it to get votes. To save their own sorry selves. They are just about as pathetic as the molester themselves. Monsters don’t live under our beds or in our closets. Evidently there are a few living in Washington as well. Monsters wearing Armani suits and instant messaging teenagers for sex while sucking down our tax dollars.

These other rich monsters in sheep’s clothing aren’t blaming their monstrous behavior on alcohol and victim mentality. They only victimize hurt children more. They aren’t much different than gang leaders. Just richer.

They hide behind “concern” and “care” for the behavior of Foley. They want to be re-elected and don’t mind hiding the awful truth of how anyone no matter his position or outward appearance can be a monster. They hide behind their so called “religious convictions” and after attending church for appearances go and cheat on their wives. They hide their intentions of using anyone and any situation to get votes, including victimization of kids. They hide behind the “concern for the people” and then people like New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin authorizes spending 185 MILLION dollars on a football stadium while the 9th Ward still lies in ruins.

The ironic part of the whole Foley thing? Foley acts like the victim, just like every other child molester. He draws all of the attention from the real victims. Politicians are good at hiding things. But not as good as they are stupid enough to think. They hide their selfishness in broad daylight.

Satan hides in their hearts.
