Seriously though, believe what ever makes you sleep at night. It is as simple as, you don't know what your talking about, obviously have no more experience than what you manage to get sitting in front of your computer, and still have the audacity to criticize someone who does what you can't or wont.
You should listen to my podcast about Honor.
Whoever, using the mail or any facility or means of interstate or foreign commerce, or within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States knowingly persuades, induces, entices, or coerces any individual who has not attained the age of 18 years, to engage in prostitution or any sexual activity for which any person can be charged with a criminal offense, or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title and imprisoned not less than 5 years and not more than 30 years.
In another message, Foley appears to describe having been together with the teen in San Diego.

to engage in prostitution or any sexual activity for which any person can be charged with a criminal offense, or attempts to do so,

What's the standard that must be reached for legal consent?
People in positions of power have leverage over their victims, to such a degree that 'consensual' sex can be interpreted as exploitave and coerced, no?
If a male employer makes sexual advances and his female employee feels that she can't say no without repurcussions, that meets the legal definition of rape, does it not?
The age of consent is one thing, fine, but the consent has to be qualified for it to apply. Just as if he had gotten the boys drunk in order to gain their consent, using his position to the same effect constitutes a breach of the law, no?
