This article has By Scout pedophiles, Prop H8 backers, pyramid schemes and bullying on a different plane by scaring journalists to not express their freedom of speech.

Its a great story, and he's pretty much daring the dude to sue him for defamation, so he can get into the process of discovery.

in the comments selection below, it gets pretty funny: "He's not a billionaire! He's only worth $750,000,000!!!!"

O Canada, where art thou?

"My country" - of which I was so proud and am now so profoundly ashamed.

And to think that people in other countries sees our dirty laundry. I can't imagine how the Canadians and others right here in H.T. really think of us. I know that many Americans could not care less about the perceptions of others. And proudly say so.

Profoundly embarrassing and very disturbing to me. I do honestly wish I could move to some other choice country where the heads were not only peaceful but level and fair minded to every person.

Were I younger and could forsee our future, I would.

There are too many people like this and too many people who will stand up and support what he says and does.

What societal sickness had befallen Americans?

There exists no other country we can go to and start over again, in order to escape the regressive oppression of this country. All the good ones are taken already.

That is probably a good thing, we don't behave well when going somewhere new and starting over. Especially if we discover that the owners are home.

Wonder if this guy is related to the Natalie Holloway killer guy since they both have the same name or is that name common in that country like Smith is here.

That one slipped through before his team of lawyers got to see it.

Interesting how he says he has a lot of gay friends but donated $100,000 to prop H8. Just doesn't quite fit.

and then there is this

And none of it excuses his team of attorneys for going after each and every person who writes about him.

This bit doesn't make him look that good -

ON THE BOY SCOUTS ISSUE-"In 2005, the Idaho Falls Post Register ran a story about several pedophiles who had operated in local Boy Scout troops over the years. These were serious offenses and the topic deserved to be covered. I had no empathy for the pedophiles. They deserved to be exposed and punished. However, I felt that the coverage of the story was unfair in several respects. I felt the paper also wrongfully tried to vilify one of the pedophile’s parents, volunteers at his church, and Scout leaders. The pedophile’s family and friends were clearly also victims. But somehow they were being blamed for his actions. These people had no way to defend themselves from the innuendos being lodged against them. I tried to put myself in their shoes. I had never met these people, but I felt someone should stand up for them.
I spent considerable time and effort trying to find out what the truth was before I took sides. I learned that there were several facts and a great deal of court testimony the paper was ignoring and Melaleuca purchased space in the paper to point out those things. Clearly, mistakes in judgment had been made. The pedophile had bamboozled everyone and he had been given far too much unsupervised access to young people in the community. But implying that all of the people around him intentionally assisted the pedophile went too far. In trying to inform the community of the additional facts that we had uncovered, I erred in not being sensitive to the extreme hurt the victims had suffered in coming forward with what had happened to them. I had no clue as to what they were suffering. I got to know some of the victims personally. They had been very courageous in coming forward. I learned that my approach had caused them more pain. I'm deeply sorry for that and would use a much different approach were this to happen again."

sounds like a royal bull in the china shop. And no matter how anyone wants to squirm and shift things around, when it comes to pedophiles, the victims are actually the kids, not the pedophiles parents.
