Republicans and the Sanctity of Marriage

What God hath joined together, let no man put asunder

In defense of marriage...

Nancy Reagan who bore him a daughter only 7 months after the marriage.

the long recovery from his war wounds.

*Sen. Lauch Faircloth - divorced

*Rush Limbaugh - Rush and his current wife Marta have six marriages and
four divorces between them.

*Rep. Bob Barr of Georgia - Barr, not yet 50 years old, has been married
three times. Barr had the audacity to author and push the "Defense of
Marriage Act." The current joke making the rounds on Capitol Hill is
“Bob Barr...WHICH marriage are you defending?!?

* Senator John Ensign of Nevada Thursday, Jun 18, 2009 @09:41am CST An ex-aide to Senator John Ensign has confirmed through her attorney that she had an affair with him. Las Vegas attorney Daniel Albregts yesterday confirmed that Cindy and Doug Hampton are the people Ensign referred to during his earlier press conference at which he admitted cheating on his wife. Cindy Hampton had worked for Ensign's two political committees in 2007 and 2008, while her husband was a top aide on Ensign's personal staff. Yesterday, Ensign resigned from his post as chairman of the Republican Policy Committee. *Jack Ryan, Illinois Republician candidate for U.S. Senate, took his wife to sex clubs and ask her to perform sex acts there. She refused and divorced him. State Sen. Jeff Miller, a Republican from Cleveland A state senator sponsoring a constitutional amendment aimed at ''solemnizing the relationship of one man and one woman'' is accused in a divorce case of cheating on his wife. Rep. Henry Hyde Speaker of the US House: While busy with the investigation of Clinton, the congressman was forced to deal publicly with his own sex life. An Internet publication reported how Hyde as a married father in his 40s started a years-long affair with a 29-year-old married woman.

Bono, 43, followed with her own announcement on Sept. 28 that she would separate - and ultimately divorce - her husband, Glenn Baxley. It was her second marriage; her first husband, Sonny Bono, was killed in a skiing accident in 1998. *Strom Thurmond, at age 23, fathered an illegitimate daughter, with a fifteen year old household maid. Where I come from that's called statutory rape.

So ... homosexuals are going to destroy the institution of marriage? I don't think gays marrying can do much more damage to the sanctity of marriage than these Republicans have done already.
