Covering (up) Sex Abuse

Have you noted the irony of some self-professing-homosexual news-anchors reporting indignantly on the current, high-profile pedophilia case in Pennsylvania? One might see it as a “conflict of interest,” which condemns the scandal itself but carefully avoids reporting on the unhealthy and unnatural homosexual lifestyle, which caused it.

Penn State University’s former defensive football coordinator, Jerry Sandusky, has been charged with 40 counts of sexual abuse on eight young boys—with more now coming forward. According to authorities, Sandusky met each of the boys he has formally been accused of raping or otherwise assaulting through the Second Mile Foundation, a charity he set up in 1977, offering mentoring, sleep-away summer camps and other services. At least one of these homosexual rapes was reportedly witnessed in a locker-room shower at Penn State, by another adult—who informed University authorities, who ignored it.

Meanwhile, Pope Benedict, commenting at the Vatican on clergy-sex-abuse revelations that have tainted the Catholic Church, said that pedophilia is a “scourge which affects every level of society.” While acknowledging that the church is rightly held to exacting standards regarding sex abuse, he said “all other institutions, without exception, should be held to the same standards.”
We wonder—should that include the news media?
