Indiana Congressman Mark Souder is quitting over an affair he had with a female staffer.
Souder has long been a crusader in the House against same-sex marriage. This year, he signed an amicus brief in a case against D.C.’s new marriage law.
Souder’s Congressional website includes a September 22, 2009 podcast on “Homosexual Government Employee Benefits,” which Souder sees as a “backdoor” way to get marriage. He added:
This is a very, stormy controversial, difficult subject. As Christians, we have to be very careful. It’s not clear how once you start to redefine marriage in these ways how you don’t have multiple wives.
He also stated, “I’m a Christian first, a conservative second and a Republican third.” Not sure where “adulterer” fits in.
There’s also one from June of 2008 on “Homosexual Marriage,” in which he explained how gay marriage was going to take over the country. Also, there are four podcasts from May of 2008 and this video from November of 2009 on abstinence education. Seems he didn’t heed his own words, huh? Oh wait. Right wing hypocrites just tell the rest of us how to live. They don’t have to practice what they preach.
