    I long for the day when sexuality isn't something you try to hide out of shame and fear.

    It isn't these days really, just a prison of your own making.

    No one would care if this guy weren't trying to pass every anti-gay bill in existence.

    I'm fairly certain a lot of people would care. The fact that there are anti-gay bills in existence is a testimony to this in itself.

    But it wouldn't be news.

    And also good for the PRSI forum. :)

    Let me be clear. I am NOT gay. I have never BEEN gay.

    Except that once in the airport bathroom. Well, and that other time with the meth and the prostitute. And a few other times when the poontang was hard to come by. And most times inbetween.

    But I love my wife. Return to your daily activities. And whatever you do, DON'T read the Statesman...

    Of course he's gay. And no, I wouldn't care, were it not for everything else he's been doing or trying to do in his position of power to hurt others like him because he hates himself and can't face what he is. Ironically, because of people like him. I suspect that there are many more like him out there too.

    Of course there are. Gay people in the closet are not fun people to be around either.

    I honestly don't know who's more in denial, Craig himself or his wife.

    I always suspected Phelps was. Besides the whole "protesting too much" thing, I've heard awful stories of the abuse that goes on in that family. Where children and women are admitted to hospitals with varying injuries, but no charges are ever filed. Hate can make things pretty ugly, but self hatred turned outward is the worst of the worst. It would be sad if they didn't bring it on themselves.

    Too bad they have to hoist it on the rest of us too because, even though I'm not gay, it still rubs me the wrong way.


    Insert rubbing joke here.

    She's the one I feel bad for. And are there any kids? Can you imagine what that would be like as a kid?

    IIRC, she has kids from a previous marriage that he adopted when he married their mother

    I was just going to add this last tidbit of information. Very interesting and makes her appearance on TV with him next to pointless

    Craig married one of his staffers after the first round of "is he gay?" questions started circulating long ago. Since she had kids from a previous marriage, Craig was provided with an instant "hey look at my hetrosexuality" family.

    The rumor is that she married him to help him beat the gay rap, and out of loyalty; not out of love. Of course it's only a rumor, the only ones who know aren't talking, but it does provide an explanation that fits the facts.

    And it's the only explanation I can think of for her not leaving him immediately. If Craig is having anonomous sex in airport restrooms, he's at an extremely high risk of passing an STD on to her -- if they're having sex. If not, I can understand why she just doesn't care that much.

    That's so creepy. That someone would go that far for power is beyond me.

    Well, before anyone says anything at least we know Bill and Hillary have consummated their relationship at least once. Ie Chelsea. The rest is better left to speculation. :eek:

    I don't want to judge based on the one interview I saw Craig and his wife in, but it was hard to mistake the coldness between them. I don't know if that's new or not. Maybe it's just the way they are. But if they weren't distant before, I'm sure they are now.

    I see nothing in that article that is admissible in court. Therefore, based upon the standards of the forum, I must declare the article to be completely untrue; and furthermore, because the information cited is inadmissible in court, there is no need to do any further investigation to find out what's really going on.

    I agree with you 100%. If I were his constituent, I'd have serious doubts about his decision making capabilities.

    You forgot the other part of it where if something is an obvious known fact, and it's funny, we can all make fun of it mercilessly.

    But no, I can't prove in a court of law that he's a self hating hypocritical closet case, so I'll stop saying it over and over again, except I won't.
