    :: Tuesday, August 31, 2004 ::
    Down here the big news is that Rep. Ed Schrock won't run for reelection because of a website that has "outted" him as gay. Unlike Gov. McGreevey, Rep. Schrock has no coordinate financial corruption scandals: just the fact (if such it is) of being an active homosexual, along with the fact of co-sponsoring the FMA and taking other stands that find no favor with the Village Voice.

    I don't know. It seems to me that "I live with this temptation out of the public eye but I don't think it's a lifestyle that should have societal endorsement" is a perfectly consistent and intelligible stance, one that would dispose of the "hypocrisy" charge, and not one that would cause too much political trouble with the Evangelical base. Those folks are more attuned to the reality of human "sin nature" than their enemies give them credit for. Of course, given that Mr. Schrock is married and a father, any public statement short of denial would be problematic. Maybe that's why he feels he has to decline reelection.
