    Gingrich's adultery shows a long-standing evil pattern of betrayal

    In the present news coverage of Newt Gingrich's amazing rapid rise in the Republiscam Ranks, there is absolute amazement that evangelicals are willing to forgive his outrageous and disgusting serial offenses against God's Seventh Commandment.

    Gingrich's adultery shows a long-standing pattern - SFGate

    [...]"The assessment of political character is complicated. Some moral failures are clearly irrelevant. Others spill over into the public realm. Avarice is reasonably associated with corruption. A candidate caught purposely cheating on his or her taxes would be judged harshly. A candidate who shot dogs for fun would be disqualified for cruelty.

    Matters of sex and relationships are more private than most. On the historical evidence, it can't be argued that a president who betrays his wife will betray his country." [...]

    I bet you were claiming Clinton's illegal sexual conduct with underlings that worked for him was just sex between two consenting adults and no ones business right?

    Would you say the same thing of Clinton or JFK?

    Frankly, most of the Christians are pretty forgiving if you get your act together and stop screwing up your life, and the lives of those who love you, so I doubt this issue will have much effect.

    Keep your shirt on! (You too Neubarth) I don't believe he was. Nuebarth has been nothing but consistant about his opinions on Clinton the sleaze.

    After your partisan rants on Clinton you have ZERO credibility or purpose in this thread.

    Who the hell are you to tell someone they need to have a 'purpose' on a thread?
