Yup. It’s that time again.
Time for another FVC – Family Values Conservative, to bite the dust following the revelation of his extramarital sexual relations with a part time staffer. Representative Mark Souder, R-IN, is resigning after having served for eight terms as a righteous voice of the family values pack. Representative Souder can be seen here in a video about abstinence education (something he seems to have missed out on given his extramarital dalliance) being interviewed by the staff member that he allegedly had been breaking his marriage vows with according to TPMMuckracker.
The more the family values, religious right crowd rails against sex – be it premarital sex, prostitution, homosexuality, extramarital sex – the more likely these hypocrites are to be indulging in the very sin they so wholeheartedly attack. Look at the culprits – Senator Vitter (LA), Senator Ensign (NV), Governor Sanford (SC), Governor Gibbons (NV), Rep Vito Fossella (NY), Rev George Rekers, Rev Ted Haggard… the list goes on and on. I’d suggest the minute you hear any of the FCV crowd on their pulpit, be it governmental or religious, attacking sex, look closely because you most likely are watching someone playing in the sandbox they so stridently attack.
