This is what I love about the ReThugs – they are, truly, so predictable.
Defending the Federal Marriage Amendment Act, John Ensign (R-NV) spoke on the floor of the Senate in 2004.
Washington, D.C. – Senator John Ensign took to the floor of the United States Senate today to defend the sanctity of marriage and urge passage of the Federal Marriage Amendment Act.
“Marriage recognizes the ideal of a father and mother living together to raise their children,” Ensign said. “Marriage is the cornerstone on which our society was founded. For those who say that the Constitution is so sacred that we cannot or should not adopt the Federal Marriage Amendment, I would simply point out that marriage, and the sanctity of that institution, predates the American Constitution and the founding of our nation. Marriage, as a social institution, predates every other institution on which ordered society in America has relied.”
Which is exactly why John Ensign fucked a married woman not his wife, but an election campaign worker and her husband, why he – was … “a member of Mr. Ensign’s official Senate staff.” Because he baaleeves in this stuff! Now interestingly on his issues page, I don’t see Marriage. I would think being a great defender of marriage, it would be all important issue. Guess not. But ya know what – ‘Animal Advocacy’ is there.
But the best part:
Mr. Ensign, 51, is married and has three children. He and his wife, Darlene, were active for a time in Promise Keepers, a Christian evangelical ministry that promotes strong families and marriages.
