The church has had, throughout its history, plenty of friends on both sides of the aisle. Or, at least, plenty of people willing to cash its checks. Few prominent politicians, that I know of, have said much about the things we've learned about the church more recently.For the record, we knew about Sarah Palin, but not Mark Foley (or many of the others).
This is the kind of thing which, if reporters were doing their jobs, could bring down the political order but, of course, that's just too much to ask because they're "journalists" now and don't have to tell us anything.
Plus, where would the occult be if it wasn't hidden?
