And yet, an open homosexual is elected to mayor of a major city, who is now accused of sexually abusing underage boys many years ago.

I have no opinion on whether the accusations are true or not. That's for the courts to decide if he is ever charged, which I doubt will happen.
I'm much more concerned with the fact that in today's world electing an active homosexual to an important position in government is not only acceptable, but celebrated. His fans see no problem with a lifestyle that is destructive and unhealthy while people of faith are insulted and called homophobes.
A 1987 essay titled "The Overhauling of Straight America", by Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen, lays out a six-point plan for a campaign to make homosexuality acceptable and even considered by many people to be a superior lifestyle choice.
- Talk about gays and gayness as loudly and as often as possible.
- Portray gays as victims, not as aggressive challengers.
- Give homosexual protectors a just cause.
- Make gays look good.
- Make the victimizers look bad.
- Solicit funds.
They later wrote After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90's, which gave the details on how this would work.
How well did it work? Well, I'd say it worked quite well. Not only is there no stigma attached to men having sex with other men (it's not about "love"), but every major city has huge (usually NSFW) type parades to cheer on perversion, and people line up to vote for these people in droves.
The once beautiful city of Seattle is now a haven for the homeless pooping in the streets, escalating crime, but the disgraced mayor made sure that the taxpayers funded, to the tune of $66,000,00, crosswalks painted in rainbow colors to celebrate his lifestyle. WTHell?
A list of his "accomplishments" is on his mayoral page and it includes every progressive stance one would expect.
And irony of ironies, one of the women running for the mayor position in Seattle is a open and proud lesbian.
