While Hollywood lectures us on how to be as "righteous" as they are, telling us how much better they are than everyone from Penn State to the Catholic Church, consider this story from FoxNews that I excerpt below:
Recent Charges of Sexual Abuse of Children in Hollywood Just Tip of Iceberg, Experts Say
By Meaghan Murphy
Published December 05, 2011
Allison Arngrim (left) starred on 'Little House on the Prairie." She said stories about Corey Feldman and Corey Haim (right) being abused as child stars were common in the 1980s and 90s.
If a spate of recent allegations proves true, Hollywood may have a hideous epidemic on its hands. The past two weeks have brought three separate reports of alleged child sexual abuse in the entertainment industry.
Martin Weiss, a 47-year-old Hollywood manager who represented child actors, was charged in Los Angeles on Dec. 1 with sexually abusing a former client. His accuser, who was under 12 years old during the time of the alleged abuse, reported to authorities that Weiss told him "what they were doing was common practice in the entertainment industry." Weiss has pleaded not guilty.
Registered sex offender Jason James Murphy, 35, worked as a casting agent in Hollywood for years before his past kidnapping and sexual abuse of a boy was revealed by the Los Angeles Times on Nov. 17. Murphy’s credits include placing young actors in kid-friendly fare like "Bad News Bears," "The School of Rock," "Cheaper by the Dozen 2” and the forthcoming "Three Stooges.”
Revelations of this sort come as no surprise to former child star Corey Feldman.
Feldman, 40, himself a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, unflinchingly warned of the world of pedophiles who are drawn to the entertainment industry last August. "I can tell you that the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia,” Feldman told ABC’s Nightline. "That's the biggest problem for children in this industry... It's the big secret.”

This is just the beginning of this scandal, although there are many in the media who would want to cover it up. Remember when Hollywood defended Roman Polanski's rape of a 13 year old girl, even after his fairly recent capture by Swiss police? On The View, Whoppie Goldberg said it wasn't really "rape-rape" - whatever the hell that nonsense means. Actually I do know what it means. She was saying that Hollywood was like a royalty that was above the law. In fact, I once learned in a college class on old English plays that in the 17th-18th century, an English lord was allowed their first four murders without being arrested (it was alluded to in one of the plays). The English aristocracy also ate off of stylish lead plates which gave them brain damage. Today the Hollywood "aristocracy" ingest several drugs which give them a different form of brain damage.
And I think Hollywood's first four murders of children's souls have just been used up.
