Massachusetts has its own Foley-type scandal: The head GLBT lobbyist at the Mass. State House -- who also worked with children on the "Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth" -- was arrested in July for internet solicitation of U. Mass. college boys for oral sex. That incident, first reported in late July/early August, sank in the local media. (We wonder why?) So it's MassResistance's job to remind everyone of our home-grown (come to think of it, Foley was home-grown too -- in Newton!) "gay" man with a hankering for fit young bodies.
The arrested lobbyist, William Conley, had a lead role in organizing "GLBT youth" as member of the "Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth." Our group just happened to catch his participation at the 2005 Youth Pride event (above photo), where he is cheering on the youth parade, standing on the State House steps with other activists of unknown character. Just as it's odd for a Congressman to be IM'ing a boy while awaiting a vote, it seems a bit odd to us that these middle-aged men would spend their Saturday afternoon organizing and attending a parade for very troubled teenagers who have been persuaded that anal sex and cross-dressing are healthy expressions of their inborn identities.
Let's just bury our heads in the sand. Pretend it's not happening. That's what the Log Cabin Republicans ("gay" RINOs) are doing: They've erased Foley's photo from their web site! Well, MassResistance will NOT be erasing any of the photos we've taken over the past decade. (And you've only seen a few of them so far!)

And from Linda Harvey, "Sexual fascism and the Mark Foley scandal":
Apparently, Rep. Mark Foley is homosexual. And like many homosexual men, he likes young teen boys. We should pray for him that he gets a handle on this problem and refrains from harming any more kids. Meanwhile, we need to wake up. The fact that this is typical behavior for homosexuals doesn't stop us from continuing to elevate such folks to positions where they gain access to our kids.
And the liberal wing of the GOP – the "It's My Party, Too" crowd – shelters and nurtures those who pose a serious threat to children in this and many other ways. Foley is on the advisory board of the radically liberal –- not "moderate"– PAC led by Christie Todd Whitman, who vetoed a partial-birth abortion ban bill while governor of New Jersey and supports homosexual "marriage." ... I guess they would all agree with Whitman's comment that homosexuals marrying wouldn't affect "her" marriage. Strange, but I thought adults were supposed to learn that it's not about "us." There's a bigger picture out there that grown-ups, including governors and congressional leaders, should learn about.
Yes, it will affect your marriage, Christie – because it will change the cultural norms, including what all of us are expected to accept and what all children are taught. Our children are endangered if we fail to leave them a legacy of sexual responsibility in the context of traditional marriage. But no – we unleash upon them public leaders with standards of the sewer.
Open or suspected homosexuals should never be elected. The problem with homosexuals is that they frequently don't have common sense and don't acknowledge appropriate boundaries. Weird sex, public displays of "affection" and nudity, and sex with youth are built into the "gay" sub-culture. Witness any pride parade, stroll around any predominantly "gay" neighborhood, or visit "GLBT" websites and you quickly see the problem. ...
Foley's leadership on the issue of child predator protection is amazing. There's little personal shame and much truth-twisting among homosexuals regarding youth. We need people of character in office, not those who are "double-minded," whose public leadership is at odds with their personal behavior.
