The media is outraged about the sexual abuse that happened at Penn State. They are disgusted by the inaction of people to stop it. I've heard numerous people tell their judgemental feelings and opinion without hesitation or qualification.
This is as it should be.
Only we need more high moral standards on more mundane actions.
It shouldn't take something so horrible as the homosexual rape and abuse of little boys to free the media of it's relativism and reluctance to judge.
I would imagine that they feel free to attack here because it's not something they would do. But the standard should not only be that but condemming things they wish they shouldn't or wouldn't do even if they once did or contemplated it.
Otherwise we'll continue this defining deviancy down.
I'm glad we have a floor, now we need to build the rest of the house.
