Apropos Dennis Hastert, former House Speaker, who admitted in court to having molested several boys:
For me though, THIS IS MORE than just about "Republican hypocrisy," or "White" and/or "Christian" males hypocrisy, for it behooves one NOT TO FORGET how many non-white males who are LGBTQIA+-phobic, but are child molesters and/or rapists; IT IS ABOUT what patriarchy or any external power structure - - tainted religion or religion dominated or controlled by the morally unanointed leaders comes to mind, here as example - - does to the individual, the human being with frailties or weaknesses, who, having been given one face by Goddess, takes on another to inherit, achieve, and maintain EXTERNAL powers, as a servant of its systemic oppression, whose every breath serves to extinguish every candle he comes in contact with, for oppression must and can only live, thrive, and survive in human darkness, where the seeds of division or otherness are nurtured in men-made, superficial-light bulbs, which, then, bear the violent fruits of hate and all its kins.
LGBTQIA+-phobia is just another tool that serves the external, or men-made, literally made by men, power structure's systemic oppression most insidiously well!
As Audre Lorde, writer-goddess, cogently warns us, all, "For the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house. They may allow us to temporarily beat him at his own game, but they will never enable us to bring about genuine change."
Goddess bless, us, all !
