The Moral Authority of the GOP?

You would think that the GOP would abandon the holier-than-thou religious right, and just own up to who they are. Pro-Abstinence GOP Legislator Admits to Affair | HULIQ
Another fine, upstanding, GOP legislator has an affair. Hardly seems like news, except there's plenty more where that came from.

Tennessee state senator Paul Stanley is, according to his website "a member of Christ United Methodist Church, where he serves as a Sunday school teacher and board member of their day school." He's also anti-gay and a strong believer in abstinence.
I particularly like this bit of snark...
Ah, yes, young people shouldn't have sex before marriage. Does that mean they have to be married to the person they are having sex with? I guess it doesn't matter, as in this case there was no marriage involved, period.
So important for the GOP to be fine upstanding members of religious communities. It just doesn't seem to important to them to live up to the beliefs of those communities.
