when sexual exploitation is fashionable
By Diogenes (articles ) | Jun 28, 2010
If a Catholic priest persuaded a 10-year-old boy to host a homosexual rally, the outrage would be universal, and it would be deserved.
But since it wasn't a Catholic priest who appointed Will Phillips as grand marshal of the Northwest Arkansas Pride Parade, only the American Family Association is complaining that this was a blatant form of child abuse.
When priests exploit children it's reprehensible. Since we can all agree on that, why can't we agree that it's also reprehensible when gay-rights activists exploit children?
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
