LOL.... when are people going to realize...it doesn't pay to hate... if you didn't impose hatred in your politics and agenda's then it would have just been a sex scandal.. but its sickening that these men push agenda's to deny basic rights to gays and lesbians.. to only turn around and solicit them for sex after their GOP convention.. LOL.. what a pack of douchebags... seriously...

Because they don't consider themselves to be "gay"
And also another question that could be asked is "why are there so many republican people it seems that are hyprocrites when it comes to proclaiming to be God fearing Christians - but yet, with so much blood on their hands

its the christian way it seems... point fingers at everyone... draw lines in society around your beliefs.. nevermind what you do yourself.... I was raised christian.. I see it time and time again.
when are people going to wake up and just be honest to themselves and their beliefs... If I was a christian politician.. I would say that the christian lifestyle is what I believe for myself and my family.. I recognize that it is not an easy lifestyle to live, but I choose it anyway, but I for no reason feel it necessary or right to impose those beliefs on anyone by reflecting those beliefs on my political agenda when the constitution and those beliefs come into conflict.... something like this would seem respectible not to mention humble... If you are in a position of power and you wish to do christianity some good... be a good example of it.. by loving others first... if loving others and respecting others is your foundation... you'd be surprised of the response you would recieve back when you yourself fall short and make mistakes...
what goes around comes around... and these jerks got SERVED!

People are now realizing all this unhealthy repressed sexuality in childhoods just breaks up families in the long run and ruins lives.

I still shake my head when I think of that junior Republican kid that was saying "Sure, everybody gets curious about their own sex. But I have prayed a lot about it and...I am not Gay!"

The next repressed generation.

Repression clearly doesn't work, while hypocrisy abounds.

The country and the world for that matter has many gays who are adding value to our society and our overall way of life. I just donít understand why so many republican conservatives have problems with this and they become so hypocritical in their actions and thinking.

Anti-gay sentiment is not restricted to US republican conservatives; other groups also fall into this trap of moral indignity which often reveals their own troubled inner voices.
