Speaking on the Foley incident yesterday, Pat Buchanan made the argument that homosexual men are more likely to engage in pediphilia and other inappropriate sexual behavior than heterosexuals. That argument is analagous to saying that prostitution is bad because it attracts the criminal element.
Prostitution attracts the criminal element because we made it a crime.
In my opinion, gay men who are closeted are more likely to act inappropriately than those who are not.
I won't even talk about Catholic priests.

I'm not for a minute excusing behavior that is wrong. And we know there will always be predators, rapists and the like, both gay and straight.
But let's imagine a world where gay people -- in all walks of life -- had no reason to conceal their sexual orientation. Doesn't it make sense that we'd have fewer incidents like this?
