Re-defining the GOP...

This morning as I wandered out to pick up the morning paper, I could not help but notice the prominent photo (by Davis Turner, Getty Images) of the teary-eyed Mark Sanford, Governor of South Carolina and the LA Times large text headline “Another GOP bombshell”.

My initial reaction was an indignant rush of emotions and thoughts about how it is these type people – not necessarily Gov. Sanford, but I speak in general terms about the GOP and their big money sources that have been touting the sanctity of marriage and trampling on minority rights in the process – are the very ones that do the most to undermine it because they can’t seem to keep their pants zipped up around people they are not married to. What ever happened to fiduciary responsibility in our public and elected officials?

I was not given the choice about being transgender (that is simply how God created me – no mistake!) but I do get to think about consequences and choose whether or not I hop in the sack with someone I am not committed to - my personal ethics do give me clarity on this, don’t yours?

I am so tired of Politicians and Preachers pushing the old lies and trying to legislate their brand of morality without holding themselves accountable to it – before they run off to sin. C’mon guys, what good is the "Sanctity of Marriage" and so on if it does not keep you out of someone else’s bed? What does that teach your children?? Be realistic! After all these years of the Moral Majority and Fundamentalist and conservative Evangelical morality – don’t you see? It does not work! No wonder the Republican Party is having so much trouble being relevant these days.

Perhaps it is simply time to be realistic and re-define the acronym GOP to mean Good Ol’ Promiscuity!

  1. I am not sure why we have parties at all. Why not just elect who seems to be the most genuine (of course this would leave out most men). But it will never happen because this would eliminate the power structure that rules all.

  2. The problem is that people are put on a pedestal and we expect them to be perfect, which they are not. What party they belong to is irrelevant.

    I believe in the sanctity of marriage and honor it with my wife of 29 years.
