I realize that not everyone agrees about the morality of homosexuality. Regardless of your POV, however, don’t you think it is morally reprehensible to print blatant lies about the “standard” behaviors of gay men? To publish on the web a suggestion that we shouldn’t be surprised because gay men are all pedophiles anyway? Being gay and being sexual with minors are two different things. If this had been a female page, the response would have been the same. At least Clinton went after legal tail.p>Regarding Mr. Stein’s statement about the Confederate flag and George Allen, I completely agree with him that the flag is not necessarily a racist symbol. History should never be ignored or forgotten. I think people above the Mason Dixon line forget that it is even a part of U.S. history. The problem I have with Sen. Allen is not his flag but his use of racial epithets. I don’t want a man who calls an American man of Indian descent a “macaca” to represent me in Congress. I’ve read that other people have witnessed him saying worse things than that, but I won’t cite them because it’s hearsay. I also know that Mr. Allen owned stock in Barr Laboratories Inc., the only American maker of the Plan B morning after pill. I’m pro-choice, but Mr. Allen is not. Not only is he a racist, he is also a hypocrite. The flag? That’s not what’s bothering me. br> — Molly McAshan /p>

This is vile and disgusting! If Ben cared at all about facts and truth, he’d take a deep breath and do some research instead of attacking Democrats. Over 98 percent of boys and 99 percent of girls who are sexually abused are abused by HETEROSEXUAL MALES! (go to the following link to get some real facts —http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/cgi/reprint/94/1/41).
It’s typical of the New GOP (vs. the Party of Eisenhower and Goldwater) — when you can’t defend the conduct of elected Republicans (e.g. Mark Foley), obfuscate, divert, and… lie. Come on, Ben … do you REALLY think that either R’s or D’s have cornered the market on hypocrisy? And, what do Robert Byrd, Bill and Hillary Clinton, or any other D have to do with this scandal? Lest you forget, R’s have control of the government and with regard to this particular scandal, none of the Ds were informed about this and they found out when the story broke in the media.
And, by the way, being incomplete and selective also constitutes lying — Mark Foley did more then ask a teenager what he was wearing … it was far more sexually explicit then that. If you can’t see the relevance of this, given Mr. Foley’s involvement with efforts to make the internet “safe” for kids and protect them from adult sexual predators … well, then, I guess you really are hopeless.p>Ben owes all gay people an apology. His first mea culpa should be to his “good friend” who is gay! Are you a bigot, Ben? Or are you just willing to say ANYTHING to attack Ds? br> — Tom Adessa /p>
I guess I now have to weigh in on Ben Stein’s column on “The Foley Scandal.” Simply put what his detractors are doing is to use smoke and mirrors to obscure Mr. Stein’s point. This what democrats have to do since they have no “points” of their own to make. Mr. Stein correctly pointed out that no matter what democrats do, they get a pass. They get a pass from all media outlets and each other. I can only guess this happens because if the democrats display pederasty; or run a house of male prostitution, or associate with known pederasts (NAMBLA) that are their constituents, it is for the greater good of we the unwashed.p>Mr. Stein was merely pointing out the hypocrisy that pervades America’s radical, socialist party. br> — Jay W.

Old man, for a smart guy, your [sic] kind of ignorant. Ninety-eight percent of pedophiles are straight men. Look it up. Secondly, Pelosi and a few others will speak up. It’s election time, dude! They’d be stupid not to. What entertains me is how many Republicans are condemning Foley (well, okay, mostly the ones whom were aware of his escapades). — human nature 101(self-preservation) and the other Republicans (himself included) want to play drama queens and blurt out and keep repeating that he’s gay and can’t hold his liquor (booze is making him molest children? …whatever) — also human nature 101. Hey, it’s election time!
It’s too late, though. The Republicans are on fire…and not in a good way. And the Democrats can easily beat a dead horse and screw it up if they were to rub salt in the wounds and put mean spins on things. But they’re playing it smart, for the most part. They just standing back and watching the fire stoke itself.p>See you at the polls, br> — Don Karnoski br> Assistant Operating Engineer br> Steam Plant, University of Chicago /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
