    Following the twin scandals of Representative Foley, Republican from Florida and Rev Ted Haggard the New Life Church pastor it seems that the outspoken opposition to same-sex marriage might have its roots in a more sinister place than hometown churches.
    Representative Foley, Republican from Florida resigned over his sexual predatory activity with young boys in Washington, D.C.
    Reverend Ted Haggard was the president of the National Association of Evangelicals from which it seemed he had unfettered access to the White House. He had to resign because of charges about him meeting with a homosexual prostitute on a monthly basis and buying methamphetamine.
    These two men and many like them have been loudly opposed to same-sex marriage.
    Who would benefit most from homosexuals pairing and ceasing promiscuous and dangerous sexual behavior?
    The men and women that prey on them, that’s who.
    Denying homosexuals like Vice President Dick Cheney’s daughter to marry other homosexuals men and women like Representative Foley and Reverend Haggard can keep their playing field open.
    Simply put - it seems that the real opposition to gay marriage is coming from the very sexual predatory and child molesting minority that many people claim to be against.
    Insisting that it is against the best interests of the United States to deny anyone the right to pair off if they want to in marriage is ridiculous and in itself a perverted and dangerous position.
    It is time now for these filthy people to get out of the private business of others.

    So, what you're saying is that since two people who were members of organizations that oppose gay marriage were discovered to be perverts, then that makes anybody opposed to gay marriage a pervert? You're grasping at straws because you have no argument.

    That's like saying that if priests were allowed to marry, then priests wouldn't molest children... that's a joke.

    BTW... how does getting married suddenly make someone stop molesting kids? Don't gay people have sex outside of marriage as it is?

    Insisting it is perfectly normal for people to be legally recognized by their aberrant sexual behavior is what is ridiculous.

    Attempting to call anyone opposed to same-sex marriage a sexual predator or pedophile is just stupid.

    Im sorry, but is there any evidence that Foley preyed on young boys? So far from what we've seen he didnt have sex with anyone and none of the pages were under 18. The guy is still a sick perv, but can we atleast be honest about it?
