Posted on 11/15/2011 3:20:20 AM PST by scottfactor
The astonishing news in the past couple of weeks out of State College, Pennsylvania has left America reeling. It is not so much that a monster like former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky would do the atrocious things he reportedly did to at least 8 boys, but that it appears a massive cover-up allowed him to continue his detestable treatment of those poor kids who were under his care.
Sandusky is charged with 40 criminal counts, 21 of them felonies, relating to sexual assault on at least 8 boys, some possibly as young as 7 or 8 years old, according to the Grand Jury presentation. Sandusky was released on $100,000 bail by a woman judge who has ties as a volunteer and donor to Sanduskys Second Mile charity foundation for troubled kids, through which he chose his victims.
There is nothing but wickedness throughout this story, and when I read the 23-page Centre County Pennsylvania Grand Jury Presentation, I was sickened, not only by Sanduskys actions, but also by the fact that he was taking advantage of little boys through his access to them in his Second Mile charity foundation. These are boys who already had strikes against them, having been labeled as troubled kids, most of them from broken or dysfunctional families.
My heart aches for those kids who Sandusky lavished with gifts, money and outings to sporting events and other fun things. The boys were initially happy to get to go to the football games, practices, dinners and trips, but they did not know the terrible price they would pay for those treats. The Grand Jury presentation is filled with the obscene details, and it is almost unimaginable that an adult would do such things to little children.
Throughout this whole ordeal, in which new, astounding details continue to emerge, I keep thinking of the words of Jesus recorded in the Gospels. As written in Matthew 18,
At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, and said, Verily I say unto you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!
Jerry Sandusky is a man to whom that bit of Scripture directly applies.
Bryan Fischer, who is a radio host for the American Family Radios daily Focal Point program, wrote a hard-hitting piece on Sandusky that was published on Saturday at the Renew America website. In part, Mr. Fischer wrote,
Jerry Sandusky faces 450 years in prison but deserves to die.
Sandusky is the former assistant coach at Penn State who has been charged with the sexual molestation of at least eight boys, some as young as age 10. Later accounts indicate that the toll may now be as high as 20, and that number is likely to grow as more details of this sordid affair come to light.
Despicably, Sandusky had access to these young boys through his charitable work with at-risk youth, a horrid abuse of trust and power.
... Sandusky was not reported to law enforcement authorities, as required by law, but instead, according to numerous press accounts, was allowed to resign in exchange for Penn State's silence.
Now stories are circulating that Sandusky may have pimped out his young charges at The Second Mile foundation to high rolling Penn State donors, a story which, if true, will consign any number of people to one of the lowest circles in hell.
This is nearly beyond comprehension. We have yet to hear any further information regarding the pimping rumors, but we do know that Sanduskys behavior was not reported to law enforcement authorities, and two Penn State officials have been charged with failing to alert police of the complaints against Sandusky. And, as you know, Head Coach Joe Paterno and Penn State President Graham Spanier were both fired. Both of them had prior knowledge of the complaints against Sandusky.
Penn States Athletic Director Tim Curley and Senior Vice President for Business and Finance Gary Schultz were both told by a graduate assistant that he witnessed Sandusky raping a little boy in one of the football building shower rooms on campus, but both Curley and Schultz denied having this knowledge when they testified before the Grand Jury during its 18-month investigation. Instead of telling the truth, they chose to downplay the incident as Sandusky horsing around with the child in the shower. They lied to protect themselves, but in this case, their lies did not succeed. The Grand Jury states that these two men provided materially false statements under oath in an official proceeding.
Lying under oath, covering up child rapewhat would make these men, as well as Joe Paterno and others, deliberately bury these awful actions of Sandusky? Is the reputation of Penn State and the football program more important than the lives and spirits of all these little boys? In no way is it, but apparently the power of the forces of college football were stronger than any desire these people may have had to do the right thing and put a stop to the homosexual pedophile monster Jerry Sandusky.
In his column, Bryan Fischer makes the point that all the attention that is being given to Coach Paterno and the others is an attempt to distract from the homosexual aspect of Sanduskys hellish behavior.
The press has focused largely on Paterno and others in the Penn State hierarchy who covered up Sandusky's pedophilia, some of whom even committed perjury to keep his dark and dirty secret from being exposed.
But perhaps some of that press focus is diversionary, to direct the attention of the public away from one of the darkest pathologies associated with homosexual behavior: homosexuals molest children at ten times the rate of heterosexuals.
Homosexual activists will of course lamely argue that since Sandusky is married, he is not a homosexual. Fine, call him bisexual if you will. But his sex crimes are same-sex crimes, and 10-year old boys whose bodies have been cruelly invaded could [not] care less what label homosexual activists want to slap on their abuser.
A study of 229 convicted child molesters in Archives of Sexual Behavior found that 86 percent of offenders against males 'described themselves as homosexual or bisexual.' Despite comprising about three percent of the population, homosexual pedophiles commit about one-third of all sex offenses against children.
Yes, Sandusky is one of the worst of the worst. When I consider the unnatural and barbaric nature of his treatment of all those little boys, I continue to be outraged that groups such as the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) are allowed to exist in our nation. NAMBLA is described on the Metapedia website as,
a pedophile and homosexual criminal cabal located in the United States, that lobbies to abolish laws which protect children from sexual abuse at the hands of perverts. It also wants the pedophile criminals who have been caught and put in prison for sexually abusing children to be released.
Who could have imagined even a generation ago that we here in America would ever allow such degenerate vegetables to come out of their sick shadows and actually lobby for this kind of wickedness? Those pedophile deviants deserve no less scorn for their dark and diseased minds than does Sandusky, because they support the very things Sandusky is accused of doing.
This awful story is far from over, and in fact, it may never be over for the victims. The terrible effects of childhood sexual abuse remain throughout the lives of those people who have been victims of adult sex predators, although there is emotional and spiritual healing available through the Lord if any of them takes hold of Him. We have no way of knowing how many boys were sexually assaulted by Jerry Sandusky, but I have no doubt it is a much larger number than will ever be officially known.
As hidden truths are uncovered, it is likely that more people will be implicated in this horrendous cover-up. What about Sanduskys wife and his six adopted children? Did they have a clue? Many of the sex abuse instances are reported to have occurred in the Sandusky home. Sandusky has been married to the same woman since the mid-1960s, and she would have to be one oblivious lady not to have known of her husbands evil proclivities, but I suppose it is not out of the realm of possibility that she was unaware. After all, we often do not see what we do not want to see.
Regardless of who knew what and when, ultimately, the law will deal with Jerry Sandusky, and hopefully he will be stopped from preying on children by being locked up for the rest of his unnatural life.
I'm thinking the iron maiden first, then burning at the stake...or perhaps being skinned alive and then bound over a bed of fire ants.
All unconstitutional. Just throw him in prison and be done with him.
From there we fight the disease. Litigious homosexuality is half of it, active pedophilia is the other. Penn State’s Women’s Basketball Coach was fired a few years ago for being ‘homophobic.” It is time to turn the tables on the homosexual litigators and use their own tactics against their highly active perversion. Get that reporter busy on finding the pervs.
...”Who could have imagined even a generation ago that we here in America would ever allow such degenerate vegetables to come out of their sick shadows and actually lobby for this kind of wickedness? Those pedophile deviants deserve no less scorn for their dark and diseased minds than does Sandusky, because they support the very things Sandusky is accused of doing”...
Political correctness is a twisted muzzle which has attempted to quiet anyone who would criticize the “degenerate deviants” among us, allowing them to become very bold in their evil behaviors. It is incomprehensible but totally believable that one of the worst examples of this kind of vicious evil has now been found in academia. What environment is more protected from sunlight than that one with it’s big monied sports and it’s tenured professorial population? Will this be a wake up call for America or will this dumbed-down population look like those ignorant students who were out rioting for “duh, football” the other day at Penn State. As I watched that, I thought of lions being led into the Colesium to devour innocent Christians for the amusement of the crowd. That crowd did not care or comprehend the crime which lurked underneath the cover of their beloved games, devouring the lives of innocent children in plain view of the rich money changers. My mind cannot take it in..It is too grim and dark..Where will it end?
Yep, already tried and convicted. Whats the chance of finding an impartial jury? Oh, right. He was accused of child molestation, law and constitutional safeguards dont apply. The American public is eager for anything to do with perverted sex and our news media is happy to furnish the details, its like legal pornography.
Sound-proof room, the victims, baseball bats, the perp.... 5 minutes...ought to do it.
Grand Jury report here:
You’ll need a bucket next to you to throw up in while you are reading it.
“It is not so much that a monster like former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky would do the atrocious things he reportedly did to at least 8 boys”
Sorry, but it is. The rest of this nightmare is collateral damage. Serious, but cannot even begin to come close to children being anally RAPED.
Now that he has said he was only “horsing around” look for another batch of victims to come forth. If they were scared before a comment like his would only piss them off I think. I still can’t believe he is out on bail.
I like it, but it has to be very slow. Maybe an inch a day. Stanch the wound so he won’t bleed to death and start again tomorrow.
(The astonishing news in the past couple of weeks out of State College, Pennsylvania has left America reeling. )
Okay lets get honest here’
1. Nothing astonishing about it. Was an open secret throughout Pennsylvania and the sports world for over a decade.
2. Its a college. The College President that was fired worked tirelessly to bring homosexuality (code named diversity) into the college program.
So why are we astonished when a homosexual pervert gets caught molesting children??
I agree. I didn’t see the visceral, sickened reaction in people that I myself feel. Just at work this morning, two women were bitching that they’re “sick of hearing about it”. Just short of 110k people went to Saturday’s game & rallied in support of JoePa.
To many people, these victims are nothing more than collateral damage in their multi-million dollar “hobby.” I’ve been shocked at how many people seem to be ok with child-rape as long as it dosen’t interfere with their lives. Disgusting.
I can see hundreds of pages of crimes hereprobably the bulk of L/E should center on Spanier and Sandusky personally. However the finances of Sanduskys Seven Mile Foundation and Spaniers use of PS finances are probably a hotbed of pedophilia activities. The IRS has targeted non-profit foundations as the locus classicus for fraud-money laundering, tax evasion and other crimes.
......several questions demand answers: (1) Who granted Sandusky emeritus status after he retired in 1998? (2) Did Spanier and the Trustees approve his tenure? (3) Sanduskys tenure gave him the keys to the locker room...and free rein to commit atrocities on young young boys in the PS showers........
Its a mistake not to connect ex-PS Pres Graham Spanier and Sandusky. These are two very calculated predatorsthey did not operate in a vacuum. They were very calculated in everything they did.
NOTE Graham Spanier was fired from the PS presidents job along with JoePa........but Spanier and his wife are still on the PS payroll as profs. Hmmmmmm.....looks like ol Graham used leverage to stay on the payroll. Betcha wife-swappin gay lovin Graham has some mighty interesting stories to tell.
Ex-PS president Graham Spaniers activities at Penn State (see more below) answers the one question on everyones mindhow did Sandusky got free rein in the PS showers with young boys? Did Spanier participate, as well? He certainly had an obsession with pederasty and moved hell and high water to give gay sex a foothold in PS.
MUST READ REFERENCE Paterno is getting the most attention, but FREEPER PA BOOKENDS posted this WRT Graham Spanier, the President who was also fired.
Spaniers degrees are in sociology with a chosen emphasis on human sexuality wife swapping, adolescent sex, etc. Spanier asserted he wanted to make PSU the most LGBT-friendly school in the country. Spaniers sponsorship gave Penn State the first gay fraternity in the nation. Under Spaniers leadership, Penn State sponsored the Tent of Consent - all about gay sex, as well as C*ntfest (shocker).
Now, shortly after his arrival, Spanier tried to get rid of the legendary Paterno. Why? The football program was bringing in tons of money. Paterno was (and remained) one of the LOWEST paid college coaches in the country. M/M Paterno donated millions to the University. Spanier lost the battle, but one has to ask: why was Spanier so eager to get rid of Joe??
It becomes clearer and clearer why Spanier was out to ditch Paterno-Spanier had to remove any and all obstacles in his path to solidifying Penn State as a protected pedophilia haven for Sandusky (and whoever else was involved in these heinous activities).
Now isnt that interesting-Spanier was approved for the presidents job DESPITE recommendations against it by those who knew of his push to normalize homosexuality. Those who voted to approve Spanier should also be investigatedthey are in deep, deep doo-doo. What did Spanier offer for a vote to approve him for the job?
Pedophiles are to homosexuality as jihadis are to Islam. We’re told they’re only a small percentage and in no way represent the group as a whole, but it’s a lie. Decades ago we, as a society, stopped condemning evil. We didn’t want to make them feeeeeeel bad. And, here we are.
Despite the fact that Sandusky is more disgusting that a piece of rotting flesh, I know what you are saying. I too have been asking:
1. How is anyone going to convict Sandusky when his right to a fair trial is clearly being ignored? It's not a matter of protecting the slimeball from unjustified incarceration, it's a matter of building a case that the slimeball defense attorney can't slime his way out of.
2. Why do we keep feeding the pornographic details to the rest of the slimeball pervs out there? Even the most casual talking head discussion includes a description of the shower scene. I imagine the slobbering pervs are frantically TIVO-ing "Sandusky" so they can get yet another injection of pornographic detail. (I can't even count how many of my friends said "did you read the grand jury report?" NO, I DIDN'T. I don't have to. Everybody's narrating the shower scene with gut wrenching detail! Cue the slimey porno music!)
3. From the day this first leaked, I was saying: wait a minute, Sandusky was the slimeball who actually did this stuff! Why is everyone focusing on the enablers as if they are bigger slimeballs than Sandusky! Their time for judge and jury will come - and they will pay dearly for their weaknesses - but Sandusky is the slimeball here. If it's true what he did, he is a sick, sick man. So let's talk about creating an environment where sick slimeballs like Sandusky won't get a second chance instead of constantly beating the dead horse of Paterno's impotence.
Did I mention that Sandusky appears to be a big SLIMEBALL?
he is out on bail so he can proceed with witness tampering.
It appears his efforts have paid off nicely.
Every day he is allowed to move about freely is another day the case will unravel bit by bit.
ever read the poem “Pops” written by Obama?
Ever wonder why so many cultures, ancient and modern, hate Homosexuality? Why was it a death sentence in Rome and Nazi Germany? Now, not all Homosexuals are Pedophiles but enough are that its a growing problem that can not he swept under the rug. The Pro-homo movement must be exposed. Let this horror rip away the mask that this is normal. One good thing about Islam—they hate such things! Only the Liberal Progressives think it ought to be a Gay World. Lets ask the little boys abused by these men (same can be said of the boys abused by priests in the Catholic Church). The Victims should have a right to sue the University for every penny they have until the organization is forced to close—and its football team banned from play. The monsters who did this are evil and deserve to be punished—but worse are those who knew, and did nothing to stop it.
Guilty? Innocent? Lets ask the Children—Lets hook em up to lie detectors—YES, Lets have a trial—then, hang these monsters or at very least break them into paupers. they must be examples so that other “Gay” abusers understand that a few lines can not be crossed.
jack wagon are you implying that somebody is enjoying this gross spectacle like it is homo kiddie porn? Me thinks thou protest to much. It might be something you think about "pal".
There are very powerful people who don’t want to see this testimony see the light of day.
The problem—beyond the tragedy of the children—is how deep the rot goes. And it’s not just Penn State. Apparently The Citadel had a similar problem wwich is now being investigated. Reality: Pedopiles are attracted to any venue where there are children. Sometimes they get in or, in Sandusky’s case, they create their own.
As for Penn State, the question is how to fix the school. The common denominator here is Marxist demrats. PSU is a state school that has evolved into a politically correct Marxist institution. Pennsylvania is controlled by politicaly correct Demrat Marxists. I’m not optimistic any meaningful change in direction is possible.
Liz, you may know that I've posted extensively on the Penn State monstrosity. By sometime on Monday the 7th, I stated that both Paterno and Spanier had to go.
Respectfully, Paterno was not one of the lowest-paid college coaches in the country. His base salary is much lower than that of a double handful of the high profile coaches who have been recruited to major programs in the last decade, such as Saban or Brown. But in some of those cases, like Saban, a once-powerful program (Alabama) was bidding to lure an NFL coach away and back into college football to restore a program. Paterno was at Penn State for 46 years and was never going to threaten to leave to bargain for a higher base salary. Part of his mystique was he wasn't driven by money.
And Paterno probably quadrupled his base salary with perquisites and endorsements, and free cars from dealers, and he likely never paid for a meal when he went out to eat, and . . . well, money wasn't an issue.
As for Spanier, he was the New Kid On The Scene. The Second Mile, Sandusky, and Paterno were around before Spanier was President. Sandusky and Paterno together, for over twenty years.
Spanier didn't try to get rid of Paterno; it was the Board of Trustees, when Paterno turned 78. The Board asked him to resign due to age. Paterno simply said 'no' and went about his business.
Finally, what we are losing in all of this is just how large The Second Mile was and how it had outgrown Jerry Sanduky in the last 35 years or so. Over 100,000 kids were served by the organization. This was a huge organization that was supported by every politician, policeman, businessman, judge, attorney, academician, and youth sports coach in the community. It had an official/unofficial connection with Penn State at some point. In a college town where the football program was the hub of the wheel for decades, The Second Mile was tied to the football program through the Second Most Powerful Man in Penn State football. While Jerry Sandusky used The Second Mile as his own WalMart for little boys, and other pedophiles may have as well, it appears that The Second Mile grew to become a huge, legitimate charity, with a national presence in the sports world, known by name to anyone in the Penn State political and football sphere.
I'm curious as to your source suggesting that Spanier tried to get rid of Paterno "shortly after his arrival." Spanier was at Penn State as a professor from 1973 to 1982, then came back as President in 1995. I'm unfamiliar with any efforts to oust Paterno around 1995. I only know of the effort by the Board of Trustees in 2005, when Paterno turned 78.
“So why are we astonished when a homosexual pervert gets caught molesting children??”
Maybe because the leftist aka progressives have ruined the educational system in America. Instead of teaching tolerance. Why not teach students to go straight to law enforcement. When a pervert approaches them.
I was flamed and banned from another message board because I described that homosexual rape was shocking and sickening.
I was flamed by many for mentioning the homosexual aspect of this case. People said that homosexuality had nothing to do with this case, that rape of girls would be just as bad, etc. etc.
And I was banned from that site for saying anything about this being a case of homosexual child abuse.
Many people have liberal minds, in that, they don’t want to talk about inconvenient truths, such as homosexual assaults. The same thing happened in the Catholic Church case. The media always talked of that case as child abuse in general terms, without mentioning that the majority of victims of the predatory priests were boys and young men.
The point of the sentence you referenced was that it WAS INDEED BAD that the monster Sandusky did those awful things to the boys, but what made it EVEN WORSE was the MASSIVE COVER-UP that allowed him to continue victimizing boys. I was NOT downplaying the child RAPE!
Yep, awake and feet-first.
For sure, Spanier did NOT hang out a sign saying he was out to get Paterno.
It took years for Sandusky to be outed.
Pedophiles and sexual deviants are very cunning——they operate well below the radar. They are very proud that they are able to gain the trust of (and to continually dupe) those around them.
As the saying goes: “Satan’s biggest trick is convincing people he does not exist.”
Those familiar with his activities have said Spanier was looking to oust JoePa.
WRT Paterno’s pay-—everything is relative said Einstein-—and considering his stature and winning ability, Paterno was most certainly low paid——compared to less gifted coaches.
But that’s not the way the sentence read. The structuring did indeed down play the rape. NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU USE CAPS.
I agree wholly. And I think this tragedy underscores the deeply flawed “ justice” system in America. Because our laws rarely deliver justice where pedophiles are concerned.
I don’t think that the school will recover anytime soon. Such a gaping wound will take a lot of time to heal. Hopefully, the students will view this as a “wake up call.” Absolute power often creates absolute monsters.
I just heard a report that said ten new victims have come forward. Heartbreaking.
Okay, then. Never mind the actual meaning of the sentence. “Interpret” it as you will, however wrong you may be.
If they’d start publicly hanging worthless pieces of human flesh like Sandusky, a lot of this stuff could be halted. I know unless put in isolation, Sandusky is likely to receive due retribution from other prison inmates, but I’d like to see these creeps publicly executed.
Because you may not be the only one who misunderstood the meanign of the sentence, I have edited the sentence to express the meaning more clearly. I cannot change the audio of the broadcast at this point, but I did make a note of the change in the comments section. http://www.dakotavoice.com/2011/11/sandusky-the-homosexual-pedophile-monster/
Obviously too many PSU students don’t get it. They chose to riot and destroy downtown State College property in support of a pedophile enabler—Paterno. OK. I get that. They’re Marxist brainwashed idiots. What I don’t get is the virtual silence from students—and there must be some—who understand the severity of the absense of morals at their school. Perhaps they feel intimidatd by the immoral majority.
Comment 39 was meant to be for you, but I messed up and wrote it to myself. I edited the sentence on the column...
“What I dont get is the virtual silence from studentsand there must be somewho understand the severity of the absense of morals at their school”
Good point. I tried to imagine what I would expect from my own child if he was a student there. Besides a transfer to another institution, my hope would be that he would be a voice of reason in the wilderness of insanity. But then, other concerns with that..like the mob like mentality of some of the students. I don’t know.
I suspect just such a 'camel's nose under the tent, then the whole damned drooling camel in their midst' environment exists in State College and in the Second Mile program.
The fired President of PSU fits the 'sexual deviant gaining power then transforming the environment' scenario. Sadly, Joe Paterno had such a flaw in his moral character that he became an enabler of this evil.
You can bet that Paterno knew what Sandusky did for sexual thrills. Joe had a close working relationship with the devil for too long and through more than one episode of accusations to have missed what he was associating with.
The nagging question is, will Americans have enough outrage to finally start reversing this evil rot at the heart of America? If NBC's complicity in allowing the sexual predator/lawyer of Sandusky to threaten exposure to the victims Sandusky names is any indication, then we the people will need to end the reign of deviant corrosion in media as an adjunct to standing against deviancy rising to demand normalcy in our midst. The trends do not look favorable for revival of moral taboos.
I believe I was the first person on FR to post a link to the Grand Jury Presentment. I've tried to stick to facts. I admit that not everything I've posted can be backed with a hyperlink to a reputable third-party source, but I wrote early about how as a child in Seattle in the early 1970s, I put black electrical tape on my white 'backyard' football helmet so that I could be one of Joe Paterno's Nittany Lions. I had no familial tie to Pennsylvania or Penn State.
I remember when Sue and Joe Paterno made their first $1 million gift to the Penn State library; when Penn State first started to be called "Linebacker U," when the University of Miami showed up in urban army fatigues for the 1987 Fiesta Bowl joint team pregame banquet and Paterno's team wore coats and ties; the 'moving back of the endzone' games against Alabama; the three undefeated seasons when Penn State didn't win a national championship; Paterno's white socks; and when Penn State joined the Big 10; and so much more.
Which doesn't mean much, except that Paterno was my hero and when I knew he had to go after reading the Presentment twice, it hit me hard. But as a man who has spend more than two decades working with youth, I was concerned about the youth involved, not a football coach that I respected.
I haven't been learning on the go about Penn State or Penn State football since this story broke. I have been learning about the perversion that was covered up for so long, and how expansive it was, and how thin the moral veneer of Paterno and the moral excellence of Penn State football was.
But I have never heard that Spanier has been trying to oust Paterno since he got there. The Board of Trustees has been dealing with Paterno's failing health and the fact that sometimes he seems to be a man in his 80s in a profession for a younger man with energy and vigor. And Joe has been stubborn and has used his power, which has likely frustrated the Board of Trustees.
So I'd like to know your sources that Spanier was trying to oust Paterno.
BUMP a thread title that uses the word “homosexual” to accurately describe Sandusky.
Sandusky is, after all, a homosexual who simply likes his sex partners real young.
Penn State had a very successful women's basketball program (although only UConn is UConn).
Renee Portland was the longtime women's basketball coach at Penn State. She started at Penn State in 1980, won over 600 games and was well known for her policy of not recruiting lesbians. After a 1991 national story quoting former Penn State players, Penn State's faculty senate added a sexual-orientation clause to its anti-discrimination policy. That's long before Spanier came to Penn State.
The policy didn't stop Portland. When Spanier came, he didn't stop Portland. She was winning games and that's what mattered.
In 2005, Penn State was upset in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Portland dismissed three players right after the game.
Things got messy when Penn State and Portland wouldn't confirm that the players were dismissed and the Sports Information Department put out a number of inventive releases suggesting that the players had left of their own accord. One of the players filed a lawsuit. Portland said she was dismissed for poor performance. Unfortunately, the player had started every game and was one of the team leaders in all statistics. The internal investigation determined that Portland was, in fact, doing her best to force players off the team if she found out that they were lesbians. Other former players who had been forced off the team for being lesbian came forward. Under a national spotlight, Penn State caved. The lawsuit was settled and Portland was forced to resign.
But under Spanier, as long as Portland was winning games and nobody objected, it was fine for Portland not to recruit lesbians and to force lesbians off the team.
Homosexualty has come roaring out of the closet----from the "love that dare not speak" to the "love that wont shut up."
One theory was proved point on---when Sandusky was described as "harmless"----just an "overgrown kid."
Some of the reliable experts point out that homosexualty is adolescent behavior---like kids in the pubescent stage---discovering their sexuality----so obsessed with it they refuse to grow up.
How did you like the NBC complicity with witness tampering, giving the sleazy Sandusky lawyer a public forum upon which to threaten the victims with public exposure if they do not recant?
Seems that if we have already tried and convicted him in the court of public opinion, he has already pleaded guilty!
And I think Sandusky will probably walk on the charges - all too likely that a PedoState fan will be on the jury and have the reaction that most PedoState people have had over the last twelve years or more - i.e. no big deal, not as important as football.
