Would this be the same Democratic Party that supports giving condoms to junior-high students and booed the Boy Scout honor guard at its Los Angeles Convention in 2000, because the Scouts refuse to permit homosexuals to be scoutmasters and take kids camping?

Hillary Clinton has marched in the annual New York Gay Pride Parade. For years, that parade had a float carrying members of NAMBLA, the North American Man-Boy Love Association, whose monomania is the elimination of the age of consent for sex between men and boys.

Alfred Kinsey in "Sexual Behavior and the American Male" reported on experiments he himself oversaw to prove the psychic benefits of sex between men, boys, tots and even infants. And this sicko had a Hollywood movie, "Kinsey," starring Liam Neeson, celebrate his genius. In Washington, D.C., the most Democratic precinct in America, the age of consent is 16. Had Foley and his heartthrob skipped off to a motel, there would have been no crime involved. Yet Foley has the FBI on his trail for sending lewd e-mails to a 16-year-old. If the Republican House leadership is guilty of anything, it is of being too tolerant, of allowing Political Correctness, a fear of being called homophobic, to trump common sense. Whether we admit it or not, many male homosexuals have a thing for teenage boys, which is why so many of them wind up with black eyes when they try to pick them up. The GOP leadership should have seen instantly, from the early e-mails, that Foley was one of these, and followed up to see if there was more than one page with whom he was flirting. If the pages knew Foley was someone to steer clear of, why did not the leadership? Yet, even if the GOP takes the hit in November for this sordid, squalid mess, the party of gay activists is setting the bar mighty high for its libertine wing. If salacious e-mails to teens are now a capital crime, Foley is not going to be the last congressmen outed and ousted.
