Religion, Hypocrisy: It wasn't rape, he liked it

It seems Mark Foley's Holy Abuser seems to think that fondling teenage boys is ok if they like it. I guess the fact that Mark's priest, Father Anthony Mercieca, was in a position of power over him means nothing. Just like Mark never used his power and influence to get anywhere with the pages. Of COURSE it's abuse! Of COURSE it's wrong to use your stature and power to gain sexual favors. UGH - hypocrisy. This is typical of the denial in the Catholic Church on this issue - abuse is such a harsh word - we like to call it helping our kids.
Mercieca, however, rejected the idea that he sexually abused Foley, saying, "See abuse, it's a bad word, you know, because abuse, you abuse someone against his will. But it involved just spontaneousness, you know?"

"Let's say it was 40 years ago, almost 40 years ago, so why bring this up at this late stage?" Mercieca asked. "Anyway, he will overcome it, with a psychiatrist you know. Mark is a very intelligent man."

Both Democrats and Republicans as well as the Catholic Church are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites.

And, by the way, Greg, you are a complete hypocrite for biting your tongue around Muslims, given what you know as fact. That is what hypocrisy is, a disparity between what one really holds and what one says or does.

Charles, you are calling me a hypocrite with no basis. What muslims are you talking about? I don't recall running into any recently that I had to bite my tongue around. I think you are projecting your idea of what I think into my head.

Particularly, your Muslim Turkish academic "friend," who is a LIAR for telling you that she remains Muslim "just to be controversial." Spare me the belittlement of false psychological "analysis." You do the same thing at GB. What you hold and what you say and how you act are often very different, the very definition of hypocrisy. Following the hypocrisy of the Democrats further illustrates the truth of what I know and now openly state. That is the funny thing about hypocrites. They are quick to identify it in others (or cast aspersions, as you did in this case), but in denial of their own offenses for the same. The truth is that you do not know a rat's ass from clergy sexual abuse and the Democrat's misuse and abuse of the Foley scandal is scandalous itself. Pure hypocrisy, given how RICO should have been used against the Catholic church. Both parties were afraid of the Catholic vote and not only are they hypocrites for doing so, those who follow them participate in that hypocrisy.

zero sleeper cells in the US! I think you have at greater risk from dying of a bee sting than a terrorist attack from one of the few thousand terrorist (out of over a billion) muslims. I am sure there is more risk of being fucked up the ass by a priest
