    Nothing new here.

    If your homosexual and do not carry the lefts water your lifestyle is evil and you will be smeared for it.




    Reading the article gives you the conclusion its simply a politically motivated hit piece that everyone outside the Far Left/Democrats will mostly ignore.

    Garbage.

    People here know me pretty well as someone who takes delight in seeing hypocritical buttheads in the Republican party outed. But Charlie Crist? This guy is not one of the moral pillars of society who attempts to tell everybody else how to live. He is a pretty tolerant guy.

    And this is where I draw the line. If Crist were being a hypocritical asshole, I would be laughing my ass off over this. However, he is not, and deserves to be left alone. Charlie Crist is not a Larry Craig, and IMHO, the movement to out as many secretly gay Republicans as possible has gone too far.

    There is a time for the outing of hypocritical politicians. It is when their own behavior is the opposite of the "moral code" they attempt to force on others. This is not one of those times. Crist should have been left alone. Instead, his political career is going to be ruined, and for what? Nothing. Nothing at all.

    You may be surprised that I am posting this, since I am known for doing a lot of gloating when a hypocritical politician is outed, especially a secretly gay politician who engages in gay bashing. I am not gloating here. In fact, I am quite angry. Since Crist was not attempting to force other people to live to certain standards, his own homosexuality is nobody's business but his own.

    Sometimes I find that people who out hypocritical politicians are assholes as big as the hypocritical politicians they are outing.

    Article is here.
    Of all the current republicans out there, Crist is one of the more tolerable ones. But I find it hard to find sympathy for any gay man (if this is true) who aligns himself with a party that has no problem with coming right out and saying gay people are going to destroy civilization, some sort of danger to society and all the other crap conservative Reps spout. Even though he is a decent guy, you can make an aliance with the devil and not expect to get burned.

    With all that said

    His sexual orientation should not have a factor as to how well he can govern the state of Florida. I hope all voters keep that in mind when they are making up their minds.

    Funny how killing an unborn child is a womans constitutional right to privacy and how dare anyoen restrict it. Gay's are free to do as they please, as openly or closted as they wish, it's their right to privacy! But if you're a Republican, and Gay, you have no such rights.


    The real hypocricy is this film and those that would support it...
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Total garbage. I'm sure you can find some nut that has said these things, but it is not the mainstream Republican philosophy and your insinuation is insulting.

    I wouldn't out this guy if the choice was up to me. Just being a member of the republican party shouldn't make him a target.

    However, this thread fails to mention the single biggest group to blame in all this: the jackasses who will attempt to destroy this mans political career simply because he is gay. The people outing him are partly responsible, but the bigots who attack him for his orientation are ultimately at fault.

    Ideally, people would get more up in arms over economic policy that realizing what politicians do in the bedroom. Besides, all politicians tell the taxpayers to drop their pants and bend over at least one during their career.

    From: Charlie Crist - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    While running for governor in 2006, Crist stated that gay civil unions were "fine," but did not support gay marriage.

    On November 4, 2008, Florida voters approved Florida Amendment 2 (2008) by a margin of 62%-38%; an amendment which defines marriage as "the legal union of only one man and one woman as husband and wife". Crist stated he did not favor Republican Party funds being spent on passing the ban, but did lend his name to groups working in favor of the amendment.

    Prior to the vote, Crist was asked where he stood on the amendment and he stated: "I'll support it, I'll vote for it, move on... It's not top-tier for me, put it that way."
    That's about as close to endorsing gay rights as a Republican can be right now. He's certainly a lot more progressive than most members of his own party...and more progressive than even a lot of Democrats. He supports civil unions, which (although insufficient) would be a step in the right direction for Florida.

    I could easily envision Barack Obama saying exactly the same thing in the paragraph above.

    Why? Why do his constituents "deserve to know the truth"? Do you expect to know the truth about whether Barack and Michelle do it doggy-style? Do you expect to know the truth about whether George Bush is circumcised? Do you expect to know the truth about whether Hillary Clinton shaves her pussy?

    Are any of them passing laws for those activities?

    Or are you just hopeful?
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    As I asked earlier

    Was Craig or Haggard attempting to get married to another man? If not, how was them being against gay marriage hypocritical?

    Did Craig or Haggard attempt to file complaint with a job because they were descriminated against because they were homosexual? If not, how was them being against such legislation hypocritical?

    Did Craig or Haggard believe that their homosexuality was a good thing that they were proud of and wasn't "sinful" or "wrong"? If not, how was them stating they believe that to be the case hypocritical?

    Unless you're telling me ALL homosexuals MUST be for ALL homosexual rights and think that ALL homosexuality is COMPLETELY good than I don't understand what exactly they did that was hypocritical.

    Unless he's saying that "All homosexuals should be jailed" or "All homosexuals should be killed" or "All homosexuals should be known" than he's not doing anything hypocritical or passing a law against "that activity"

    Is Charlie Crist passing anti-gay laws?

    He says he favors civil unions and that he's opposed to gay marriage but it isn't a major priority. For a Republican, that's extraordinarily progressive...and he isn't even from New England. His official position on the issue sounds identical to Barack Obama's, and one gets the feeling that neither Crist nor Obama would throw up any roadblocks to prevent gay marriage.
