The Right's Molestation And Hypocrisy Problem

It appears that the co-author of books by the saintly Huckabee and Alabama's moral conscience Judge Roy Moore has a history of molesting children. See a trend here ?

Co-Author Of Mike Huckabee Books Was Accused Of Child Molestation In Two Legal Cases - BuzzFeed News

John Perry, a prolific author who co-wrote two books with former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and co-wrote one with Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, was accused of child molestation in two separate lawsuits, BuzzFeed News has found.

A 2012 police investigation of Perry’s alleged offenses found that “the allegations of sexual battery were sustained” but that the statute of limitations had expired.

It varies by state.

I'm not sure what this HUGE fix on child molestation is all about, but it is certainly prevalent. And not many right wing politicians speak out about it.
Thanks from Camelot

Not many left wing politicians speak out about it either.

And 50 years ago NO ONE talked about it...including the victims. I think it is progress that only politicians now have trouble talking about it...even my Church has learned to talk about it.

Perhaps some of these politicians were relying on that silence 50 years ago to continue. The odd thing about this mental disease is that the afflicted can seem perfectly normal in all other ways...can be an extremely high performer...so even if accused we tended to question the accusation (50 years ago) on the basis that they were great folks in all other regards.


Today we are at the other end of the spectrum. Any accusation instantly has a significant degree of credibility. And the threshold for what is real abuse has been lowered so far that disciplining your child can cross it in some minds. We condemn then investigate. I guess that is progress but damn, some common sense and moderation would be appreciated.

Frankly, I get tired of everything being for "the children". I can take care of my own children and defend them very nicely should the need arise. I really don't need politicians looking out for them...particularly my daughters.
Thanks from Sabcat and LongWinded

I'm wondering if the religious right considers minor status a man made status and that the Bible does not differentiate between adults and minors when it comes to sex. Do you think they believe it's God's will or some crazy justification like that ?

I'm religious, and a conservative Republican, I believe in evolution, and God, and Science, I enjoy sex, I don't hate homosexuals; and I resent you grouping all religious conservatives as some far right, bunch of buffoons.
Thanks from imaginethat and Sabcat

And how many times have you lumped the liberals all together as a bunch of morally corrupt, America hating, communists ???

I guess I may have been guilty of that a few times, but actually it had a bit more validity; and I don't think I ever stated all liberals.
