Foley Follies

We at Holier Than Thou think there is nothing funny about the allegations that Republican Congressman Mark Foley, who headed the House task force for missing and exploited children, had been making inappropriate sexual advances toward underage male congressional pages for years.

1). But we do feel the need to point out that, Foley has said in his defense, that he was sexually abused as a teen by WHOM?

A. A neighbor
B. His high school basketball coach
C. A relative
D. A member of the clergy

2). And while we’re on the topic, Foley’s religious affiliation is WHAT?

A. Catholic
B. Lutheran
C. Southern Baptist
D. Presbyterian

1). D: Foley said that, while it’s no excuse for his own actions, he was molested by a member of the clergy when he was between the ages of 13 and 15.

2). A: And while Foley won’t discuss just who this clergyman was, Foley did grow up in the Catholic Church, where he was an altar boy.
