Now I know this is not a complete list. Sadly, I left off MANY names that were associated with child pornography, rape, and even murder. And I know I only named GOP scandals. But the GOP are the ones who RUN on a platform of family values and decry the marriage destroying evils of gay marriage. So I’ve listed the hypocrites, if you will… as they are the ones claiming to be standing for the sanctity of marriage, all the while, apparently, just shitting all over it.

So, if we’re going to protect marriage, it seems to me we should protect it from people like this.
Just saying.

  1. Amen, amen, amen! Could not have said it better myself, my friend. Hypocrisy is the official policy of the Rethugs. The Hubby and I have been married 20 years, and our same-sex married friends pose no threat to our marriage. In fact, our friendships with them does nothing but enrich our marriage. The GOP is a group of petty, insecure, old white guys, scared to death that others might have the same rights that they do.

    Great post, my friend, so well-said!

  2. In lieu of reply I’ll refer you to a blog a friend of mine recently wrote.

    I think that covers it pretty well.
