Another (R) hypocri-bites the dust

by Jeremy Hooper

Rep. Mark Souder (R-IN) has come out against same-sex marriage, using a Biblical basis:

"The things that are more uniquely evangelical -- because we're just like everybody else, with the same pressures as everybody else -- but what is uniquely evangelical, there is a deep-seated concern about the homosexual marriage question. Probably the single biggest issue is the courts, which people blame for that decision. They blame the Senate for not moving the more conservative nominees from President Bush, so the court question has superseded even the homosexual marriage question or the abortion question." [SOURCE]

"I believe that Congress must fight to uphold the traditional values that undergird the strength of our nation" [SOURCE]

Rep. Mark Souder (R-IN) has come out against gays in general, using a Biblical basis:

"I believe people can have a propensity to alcoholism. I believe they can have a propensity to look at pornography on [the] Internet. I believe they can have a propensity to be homosexual. But I believe that it's wrong and it's controllable. That is a fundamental, biblically based view that doesn't leave a lot of room or comfortability in a society where they don't want you to have absolutes." [SOURCE]

Rep. Mark Souder (R-IN) has come out again the Employment NonDiscrimination Act (ENDA), using a Biblical basis:

Rep. Mark Souder (R-IN) has now come out as a man who cheats on his wife with a staffer:

WASHINGTON – Saying he “sinned against God, my wife and my family by having a mutual relationship with a part-time member of my staff,” Rep. Mark Souder, R-3rd, said Tuesday he will resign from Congress.

Using a Biblical basis?
