    Senator John Ensign, the only Pentecostal in the United States Senate, has fought the good fight in defense of the sanctity of marriage. He voted not to add sexual orientation to hate crimes laws. He voted for a constitutional amendment to prohibit same-sex marriage. Try as he might, though, he just wasn't strong enough to defend his own marriage against the gay onslaught.

    Yesterday, Ensign acknowledged that he had an affair with a campaign staffer who was married to a member of his office staff. We assume the affair was with a female staffer, but one thing's for sure: Ensign is not responsible for respecting his own wife or his own marriage. The sanctity of his marriage was, like the sanctity of so many other Republican marriages, undermined by those pesky gay folks. If gay people are allowed to marry, how is any red-blooded Christian man supposed to respect his own marriage?

    How unfortunate. I always think it's a shame that things like this happen. Senator Ensign probably doesn't even understand the whole gay marriage debate...most who are vehemently against gay marriage don't.

    Hypocrisy in action.

    Bob Barr, Republican Congressman from Georgia. Sponsored the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act, saying "The flames of hedonism, the flames of narcissism, the flames of self-centered morality are licking at the very foundation of our society, the family unit." Was married three times. Paid for his second wife's abortion. Failed to pay child support to the children of his first two wives and while married to his third and present wife was photographed licking whipped cream off of strippers at his inaugural party.

    Robert Bauman, Republican congressman and anti-gay activist from Maryland, was charged with having sex with a 16-year-old boy he picked up at a gay bar.

    Mike Bowers Former State Attorney General of Georgia, prosecuted the famous "Bowers vs. Hardwick" case, based on Georgia anti-sodomy laws. Admitted to a 10-year adulterous affair

    Jim Bunn Congressman of Oregon: With his success due in great part to support from the Christian Coalition, Bunn won his congressional seat, then immediately ditched his wife (and mother of his five children), married a staffer, and put his new wife on the state payroll for the unheard-of salary of $97,500.

    Ken Calvert, Congressman (R-Ca), champion of the Christian Coalition and its "family values." Sued as an alimony deadbeat by his ex-wife. Said "We can't forgive what occurred between the President and Lewinsky." In 1993 he was caught by police receiving oral sex from a prostitute and attempted to flee the scene.

    Ted Haggart, pastor of a 3,000-member church, who preached often against homosexuality, spoke with President Bush frequently, and was held up as a pillar of "family values." Turns out he had a sexual relationship with a male prostitute, who he also paid for meth-amphetamines.

    Let's make a law that gay people can have birthdays, but straight people get more cake — you know, to send the right message to kids.

    I just Googled "gay tree" and found one, but it's a bit...inappropriate for a family forum. Let's just say that sometimes when trees intertwine, they end up looking a lot like humans doing things that humans do. Including gay humans.

    I'll pm you the link if you want.
