Faith... This means that people of faith typically adhere to higher
'moral' standards. And that is not evident in the actions of the
GOP: *'Gingrich pressed on affair' - 02/23/11 - CNN "You
adamantly oppose gay rights... but you've also been married three times and
admitted to having an affair with your current wife while you were still married
to your second," Friedman said....' *(Arnold) 'Schwarzenegger,
Who Spoke Out Against Single Mothers and Vetoed Gay Marriage Bills, Fathered
Child Out of Wedlock' - By Julianne Escobedo Shepherd - Alter Net - 05/17/11 *(Mark) Sanford Admits Affair After Secret Argentina Trip' - 06/24/09 -
Fox News *'Nevada senator, facing ethics probe, says he'll resign' -
NBC News - 04/21/11 'Republican Ensign admitted having an affair with wife
of one of his aides' *'Sen. Vitter Apologizes for Number Showing Up
on Phone Records of Alleged Prostitution Ring' - Fox News - 07/10/07
That last one? Still in office.
Pagan, Your list is misleading.What I hope is for people to be
consistent. Call out the bad in either party.I think what you are
trying to show is that the GOP tries to tout themselves as the Moral party but
fails in that regard.In reality, they are just as likely as the Dems
to have moral transgressions.I also dislike the hypocricy in
politics and those who want to blame all of our countries woes on one party.In reality, both parties are failing our country.Until
people wake up and start holding their own party accountable, nothing will
change.The article highlights the GOP dilemma. They have to move so
far right to get the GOP nod, that they will have little chance with the
moderates in a general election.
"They consider themselves modern-day apostles and prophets, blessed with
the same gifts as Old Testament prophets or New Testament apostles.The pastors
told Perry of Gods grand plan for Texas. A chain of powerful prophecies had
proclaimed that Texas was The Prophet State, anointed by God to lead the United
States into revival and Godly government. And the governor would have a special
role."The rest, except Jon Huntsman, gets their marching orders
from Norquest and Limbaugh. And the Republicans are so confident in taking over
all 3 branches that compromise is impossible.
'What I hope is for people to be consistent. Call out the bad in either party.'

However, Nancy Pelosi was the first to call an investigation into Anthony Weiner
for 'sexting'... but no one says anything about Republican David
Vitter. Double. Standard.
"A candidate's religious identification ... should be of little or no
concern regarding the candidates' qualification to serve as president,"
said Rev. Welton Gaddy, President of Interfaith Alliance, a group that champions
individual rights and religious freedom. "No candidate should be judged,
either the worthiest or un-worthiest for the presidency, on the basis of that
candidate's religion or religious affiliations."---Amen Reverend!!! (as a gay man, am I allowed to say "amen"?)
Ranch Hand: Evangelical(Good message/Gospel in KJV)Christians. The great
commission(Mt 28:19) Jesus commands it. What if the disciples never left
Jerusalem? Christians are not secret service agents. But whoever
denies me(Christ) before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in
heaven. (Mt 10:33).The right to life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness should be grounded in a Christians essential beliefs as well as a
Mormons. Bible believing Catholics and Evangelicals agree , no flip flopping
here(Romney). For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my
mothers womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your
works are wonderful, I know that full well. ( Psalm 139:13-14 NIV). (Judgment)
Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it
not to one of the least(elachistos*1646) of these, ye did it not to me.(MT

@sharrona;I'm not sure I get your reference. Anyway, I
didn't want to get struck by lightning and all that for using a word that we've
(glbt) been forbidden to use. After all, we're denied the use of the word
"marriage", I'm simply not clear any more on what words we're allowed
to use. Is there anyone out there with a valid glbt-friendly dictionary these
days? I wouldn't want to offend anyone; after all, so many believe it's their
constitutional right to not be offended by us.
RE: PaganYour assertion is false.they do not adehere
higher moral values., they strive for them.Failing meet
those higher standards does NOT make one hypocrite. Noen of us are perfect, noe
have claimed perfection.That is NOT the definition of
"hypocrite"So unless you can come up with something each
indvidual has said about a specific value and then did differently from said
value, you are wasting our time.
'So unless you can come up with something each indvidual has said about a

*'Gingrich Says He Cheated on His Wife' - AP - Published by NY Times -
03/09/07'WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich
acknowledged he was having an extramarital affair even as he led the charge
against President Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky affair...(sic)'Gingrich
argued in the interview, however, that he should not be viewed as a hypocrite
for pursuing Clinton's infidelity.' *(Arnold) 'Schwarzenegger, Who
Spoke Out Against Single Mothers and Vetoed Gay Marriage Bills, Fathered Child
Out of Wedlock' - By Julianne Escobedo Shepherd - Alter Net - 05/17/11 Ensign, also trying to get Clinton impeached... while failing to
resign over his own adultery scandal. How many examples would you
like? Of people touting their 'higher moral standards', while doing
the exact, same thing they accuse OTHERS of doing?
