When I see a story like this I always say a little prayer, ‘Please God, let it not be a Democrat.’ More often than not, my prayers are answered.
An anti-gay, religious conservative Republican politician who ran for Governor of Alabama on a morality platform has expressed family values in a new and unexpected way. Pam, at
Pam’s House Blend put the link on Facebook. Pam has been accused of trying to re-invent marriage because she and her wife want legal equality even though they are interracial in the South. And they’re a same-sex couple.
But Bill Johnson’s approach to fatherhood, arguably, is far less traditional than two ladies setting up housekeeping. He seems to think he was working on a nice surprise for his wife, but she is not taking it well. I would not blame her if she takes it to a lawyer’s office, but that’s her decision.
Dear friends, take this as a reminder that when someone uses vague phrases like ‘family values’, you cannot take that to the bank, because it’s totally open to interpretation what those values are.
Bill Johnson doesn’t meet Kmareka’s standards of deportment, so I’ll post the link, straight outta Alabama, here.
I heard that Newt Gingrich is promising not to commit any more adultery. That’s nice. He would have broken promises to two women who married him, but those marriages were annulled so it doesn’t count.
Expecting politicians to have integrity in all areas of life is like trusting a dog to guard your lunch. I long ago learned to settle for ‘good enough’.
