As a friend of Alice's and a fellow grad school matie i must attest to this 
individual's activities and say he was a fundie with a mission who was "in 
your face" about an activity which he felt he had some say in (how he thinks 
so lacking any sort of functional uterus is BEYOND me). Lets just say he was 
judgemental and made it clear that women should not be given the choice to 
reproductive determinism.

I never heard about this but it would have been delicious to just sit down 
next to him at 2 am and discuss the position that most fundies hold that such 
material is a sin to possess and how this all jived with his other fundie

his pedophelia will resolve for him on the whole negativly if he acts on 
it..but i personally worry more about his anti-choice activities which are 
very much out in the open.
