Christian Defense Coalition Condemns the Politicizing of the Representative Foley Sex Scandal

Contact: Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Christian Defense Coalition, 202-547-1735, 540-538-4741 cell


WASHINGTON, Oct. 5 /Standard Newswire/ -- The Christian Defense Coalition finds it repugnant that groups would use this tragic episode for political gain and calls those who do so on the same moral footing as Foley himself.


The discussion should focus exclusively on how government officials can best protect the young men and women who serve in our nation’s capitol.


It is morally reprehensible to have the attention centered on questions like who will gain control of the House this fall, or how will this impact the Republicans.


The only questions should be on ensuring safeguards and a system of accountability to be put in place to protect these young pages and interns.


Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, comments, “How the entire Foley episode has been handled shows why Americans are so disgusted with Washington based politicians.  The focus of this tragic episode should be to ignite a national discussion on how to best protect the young people who serve in our nation’s capitol -- not on how to gain the political upper hand.  Our elected officials should be focused on how to protect America’s youth instead of trying to influence the elections this fall.


“To those who are conducting polls and focus groups to see how to best capitalize on this situation; shame on you.  Your actions are almost as morally reprehensible as Representative Foley himself.  Let us all diligently work and pray that Washington, D.C. could once become a place where the ‘people’s business’ is put first and this kind of repugnant display of politics takes a back seat.”
