I agree. The worst of it is, he was the one originally exposing gay youth clubs for being predatory, abusing minors, and serving alcohol to underage members. He drew attention to the clubs by contacting law enforcement himself, which was a noble thing.
Somehow or other, he reversed his stance.
Funny; I didn't read it that way at all. I read that he was seeking revenge on individuals in the Out group (although perhaps unconsciously seeking help); but in his confusion, sank his own reputation with other gays.
The unitended consequences -- the letter posted on the Internet by pro-family groups -- apparently hadn't occurred to him when he cooked up his scheme to harm the Out group.
