    How can something like this happen over such a long period of time?

    Here is the latest link from Yahoo:

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/ncaaf--jerry-sandusky-guilty-verdict-victims-heroes-penn-state-civil-suits-.html

    I don't know about you guys, but as a father and community leader having been involved in youth organizations I couldn't be more outraged by this man's actions and the trail of victims he left behind.

    At the same time I can't help but believe the additional damage this man caused to the gay community and the additional scrutiny and unjust judgement to good men trying to help the less fortunate.

    Agreed this man has nothing to do with the "Gay" community, but there is still a large part of our population that identifies cases of child molestation like this with gay men.

    What are your thoughts? What can you do as gay men to help public opinion and shed some light on the truth and put down these false ideologies that have plagued the community for so long?

    Why does it surprise you that this happened over a long period of time? Sainthood -- and I'm speaking of Joe Paterno -- covers many sins. Just look at the trash piling up around Saint Obama.

    Well other than two political posts which this had nothing to do with, I guess this hasn't been a hot topic for many of you.

    I think it only hit home with me because I am father and community leader and understand the impact these things can have on both the local community and public opinion.

    Thanks for reading anyway!

    Peace

    Sandusky was not gay. This does not do anything to the gay political agenda, unless you end in a bar with morons who want to argue that a pedophiliac loser is gay, which Sandusky was not.

    Thus your silly post gets no attention from a largely gay site because it is about a straight criminal who acted out on boys, yech.

    Smart money, I am sorry I wasn't clearer on my thoughts and you misunderstood me completely. I don't believe that this trial has anything to do with being gay, but several people still associate gay men with sexual predators. Not my opinion just the facts.

    For the record there are a number of gay fathers and compassionate people who read these posts that do care about the welfare of children and the gay mans roll in public service which I believe is very relevant to trials like this.

    Thank you for posting, everyone has a right to an opinion.

    Did you think for a second that anyone in here thought he deserved less than what he got? or appalled that he was even charged?

    what where you looking for?

    Sandusky and pedos everywhere deserves to be deballed or in the case of women detitted and sewn shut. for starters.

    ╬ťark,

    Why are you putting words in my mouth? I was looking for some feedback from the RJ community nothing more.

    You fail to see we are on the same side here.
