Yet another anti-gay zealot convicted for sex crimes...

Anyway, just so we're on the same page here I don't consider attempting to have sex with post-pubescent adolescents of either sex to be "child molestation" or "pedophilia" (though of course the legal definition may be depending on the state). A lot of the confusion surrounding the catholic church scandals involved people (often deliberately) conflating the rather different crimes.

But, in any case, it's hard not to conclude that so many of the anti-gay freaks are really trying to suppress their own desires. People who are genuinely straight don't talk about the "temptation" of gay sex acts. A lot of these people have to either be gay or bisexual and have just made their internal battle an external one.
