The WSJ has lost all sense of decency

when they write crap like this.

They call Foley gay when there's no evidence to the sort. They advocate quarantining gay Congressmen from male pages, as if somehow only gay people make advances at minors, and as if gay people can't control their libido.

They say this:

But in today's politically correct culture, it's easy to understand how senior Republicans might well have decided they had no grounds to doubt Mr. Foley merely because he was gay and a little too friendly in emails. Some of those liberals now shouting the loudest for Mr. Hastert's head are the same voices who tell us that the larger society must be tolerant of private lifestyle choices, and certainly must never leap to conclusions about gay men and young boys. Are these Democratic critics of Mr. Hastert saying that they now have more sympathy for the Boy Scouts' decision to ban gay scoutmasters? Where's Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on that one?

This is repulsive. How dare they paint millions of people with the brush of one bad actor? To use this predator's story as a reason to discriminate against all gays when, again, there has been no evidence to support the claim that Foley was gay, well, it's incredibly irresponsible, it's slander, and while I'll defend their right to say it, I will exercise my right to say they are bottom-feeding, intolerant, pandering, useless media whores, who take an otherwise respected newspaper and make it into a joke with their hideous, bigoted, slanderous opinion writing, and while they're at it, they lie like hell on a regular basis to suit some wacko theory that they came up with while sitting around the office and dreaming up ways to destroy any credibility they might possibly have.

They can all go to hell. I'm sure they'll fit in real well down there.

Update (10:33 pm, 10/3/06): Mark Foley's lawyer today declared Foley is a gay man. How nice. Despite the fact that Foley is now making this declaration, it still demonstrates nothing about the WSJ's bullshit theory. Being gay doesn't equal predator. To claim otherwise is to demonstrate a intellectual dishonesty, a moral compass with no needle, and just pure hatred. The now-deceased anti-gay gay mayor of Spokane, WA, Jim West, also preyed on teen boys online while hiding his orientation. Perhaps it's hiding one's true self that is making these men go after boys, not the fact that they are gay.
