- 2001 - "Bring your sons along with you when you come" - Sai Baba, a millionaire mystic guru with millions of followers worldwide, really wanted to meet Prince Charles. The Prince of Wales wrote to one of Baba's followers the following: "[Professor] Keith [Critchlow] has often told me about Sai Baba and the effect he has had on many people and it is wonderful to know of the difference he has made to your life. Perhaps I will be able to meet him one day when the time is right." On this date that comment cause a great media stir, as Sai Baba is accused of brainwashing followers and of being a pedo. the FBI and UNESCO both have investigated him on such charges. Baba has been accused of enjoying rubbing oil into boys' genitals claiming it helps release their sexual tension. Well, really now! Who wouldn't enjoy that?
- 2002 - Striking out on Capitol Hill - The ACLU issues a release to all members of the US House of Representatives on this date to appeal to them to vote against H.R. 2146, the "Two Strikes You're Out Child Protection Act." The bill was designed to impose a mandatory life sentence for any person convicted of certain federal sex offenses against a minor if the person has a prior conviction for a sexual offense against a minor. The ACLU wrote, "an individual convicted of raping a six-year-old child using force who has a prior conviction of a similar nature would be subject to the same penalty as a 19 year old who engages in consensual sex with a 15 year old, if the 19 year old had a prior conviction against a minor." The added, "This mandatory sentencing scheme raises grave civil liberties concerns because it would prescribe arbitrary and disproportionate sentences. Although we agree that society must be protected from those who commit crimes against children, we believe that the penalties currently in place... provide for adequate punishments." The lobbying effort did no good. Two days later the bill passed by a vote of 382 to 34.
