Is it any co-incidence that Bob Gray, the man who is responsible for this blog in the first place, was an outspoken supporter of the late Jerry Falwell's Moral Majority, supporter of George Bush, and his church, Trinity Baptist in Jacksonville, is still a proponent of Republican candidates, including Mike Huckabee and John McCain?
At least the majority of Democrats keep their sexual scandals limited to adults 18 and over! Maybe there's something about those who oppose liberty for consenting adults that twists their minds toward minors? Who knows?
One of the reasons the corruption at Trinity was allowed to continue for as long as it did was because of politics. They were in bed with the Republican party even during my day. You have to wonder what ultimately led to the corruption. Did politics corrupt the church? Or did the churches, steeped in denial, help corrupt the politics? It was probably a mutual admiration society of corruption.
You can't condemn what happened at Trinity without examining the political implications. I've always contended that. One corruption inevitably leads to the other.
In any event, I've been considering making a YouTube inspired by John McCain's attack ad against Obama for, of all things, a class where children are taught the difference between inappropriate and appropriate touching.
I made one within a year of Bob Gray's arrest called 'DON'T GO IN THE CHURCH!'. Well, it turns out I don't have to do that. Others have caught on. Their YouTubes are pretty close to the YouTubes I would be making. Thanks for saving me the effort!

NOTE: Apologies for the profanity on the intro page for this video. However, it is well made, and you can't deny the person responsible for that page doesn't have a good reason for outrage.
Of course, it all goes both ways. Hillary, a lawyer, did help free a child rapist. Then again, she's not exactly endorsing programs to warn kids about pedophiles, nor is she running for president:
The Republicans still beat the Democrats when it comes to the number of members convicted for these type of crimes:
STOP REPUBLICAN PEDOPHILIA!
Politics corrupts individuals as well as churches. Until this matter gets addressed, there will always be cover ups in churches, liberal or conservative.
