Hypocritical Left "Outraged" Over (R) Affair
Looks like the hypocritical left is outraged and crying "hypocrisy" over Senator John Ensign admitting he had an affair with a woman on his staff after his opposing gay marriage.
To be sure, the Senator is a Republican, otherwise the left would be seeking to give him an award or medal of some kind instead of calling for his resignation.
(see Bill Clinton, John Edwards, Gary Hart and Massachusetts Democrat Barney Frank, [pictured] who has admitted that he had an affair with a male prostitute.)
Of course they have to take it to the next level and ask...
"Who is the bigger threat to marriage (two of them), Ensign or gays and lesbians?"Based on their own main criteria of "promiscuity", lets take a look at who is the hypocrite here.

A 2004 article by Michael Foust regarding homosexuality and promiscuity states the following:
|“|| A new study by a group of University of Chicago researchers reveals a high level of promiscuity and unhealthy behavior among that city's homosexual male population. |
According to the researchers, 42.9 percent of homosexual men in Chicago's Shoreland area have had more than 60 sexual partners, while an additional 18.4 percent have had between 31 and 60 partners. All total, 61.3 percent of the area's homosexual men have had more than 30 partners, and 87.8 percent have had more than 15, the research found.
As a result, 55.1 percent of homosexual males in Shoreland -- known as Chicago's "gay center" -- have at least one sexually transmitted disease, researchers said.
The three-year study on the sexual habits of Chicago's citizens will appear in the upcoming book, "The Sexual Organization of The City" (University of Chicago Press), due out this spring.
In September of 2006, the Agape Press reported the following regarding homosexuality and promiscuity:
|“|| A survey by The Advocate, a homosexual magazine, revealed that promiscuity is a reality among homosexuals. The poll found that 20 percent of homosexuals said they had had 51-300 different sex partners in their lifetime, with an additional 8 percent having had more than 300. |
Unprotected homosexual sex is also a concern among health professionals. A survey in Ireland by the Gay Men's Health Project found that almost half of homosexuals said they were having unprotected sex....
The fact that many homosexuals appear to live their lives in sexual overdrive does not seem to concern leaders in the movement. In an editorial from the same issue (August 15) in which the survey results were published, The Advocate said: "[Homosexuals] have been proud leaders in the sexual revolution that started in the 1960s, and we have rejected attempts by conservatives to demonize that part of who we are."
In November of 2007 the news organization One News Now reported the following regarding Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth remarks about the spead of AIDS via male homosexual promiscuity and a conference on AIDS featuring Pastor Rick Warren and Senator Hillary Clinton:
|“|| Pro-family activist Peter LaBarbera says he shares Pastor Warren's desire to fight the spread of HIV/AIDS but wonders what solutions a politician who is an ardent supporter of the homosexual agenda has to offer in combating the disease. "He says that he's a co-belligerent with people who he disagrees with on other issues," notes LaBarbera, "[so] I guess the question would be: does he disagree strongly with Hillary Clinton's approach to homosexuality and even the AIDS crisis?" |
Although he admits he is skeptical of what solutions a defender of the homosexual lifestyle like Clinton has to offer churches for fighting the HIV/AIDS crisis, the activist is calling on Warren and Clinton to use the upcoming summit to tackle the problem of homosexual promiscuity, which often results in HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.
"We have homosexual bath houses operating in major cities across this nation," LaBarbera notes. "These are places where men go for anonymous sexual liaisons with other men. They're bringing the HIV virus back to innocent women, because some of these men do not identify as 'gay' and they're even married. So what about that aspect of the AIDS crisis?"
Another study involving male homosexuality examined the sexual profiles of 2,583 older homosexual men and was published in the Journal of Sex Research in 1997. This study of male homosexuality found that 2.7 percent of these men claimed to have had sex with one partner only. 
The David P. McWhirter, M.D., and Andrew M. Mattison, M.S.W., Ph.D. study reported in their 1984 work The Male Couple: How Relationships Develop stated that in regards to relationships involving male homosexuality that "all couples with a relationship lasting more than 5 years have incorporated some provision for outside sexual activity in their relationships."
Homosexual Male Promiscuity in the United States in the 1970s
|“||Gay liberation in the 1970s was accompanied by an explosion of gay sexuality, especially in tolerant cities such as New York City and San Francisco, where gays concentrated. The director of the New York City Department of Health describes the situation as follows: "By their own reports, many men had large numbers of sexual partners annually, often numbering in the hundreds and even in the thousands. Frenetic casual and anonymous sex was widespread among homosexual and bisexual men. Bathhouses, back rooms of bars and clubs, and other public settings such as erotic bookstores and movie "heaters were, in effect, wide open...these practices and more were accompanied by extremely high rates of sexually transmitted diseases and set the scene for the rapid transmission of HIV once it appeared in the late 1970s. Rates of rectal and oral gonorrhea in males soared...|
What about Domestic Violence?
For more information please see: Homosexual Couples and Domestic Violence
Studies report that homosexual couples have significantly higher incidences of violent behavior. For example, a recent study by the Canadian government states that "violence was twice as common among homosexual couples compared with heterosexual couples". According the American College of Pediatricians who cite several studies, "Violence among homosexual partners is two to three times more common than among married heterosexual couples." In addition, the American College of Pediatricians states the following: "Homosexual partnerships are significantly more prone to dissolution than heterosexual marriages with the average homosexual relationship lasting only two to three years."
In June of 2004, the journal Nursing Clinics of North America reported the following regarding homosexuality and domestic violence:
|“|| Domestic abuse is under-reported in the gay community... |
Male-on-male same-sex domestic violence also has been reported in couples where one or both persons are HIV-positive. Intimate partner abuse and violence include humilation, threatening to disclose HIV status, withholding HIV therapy, and harming family members or pets.
Okay... let's review.
The left claims a guy (R) who admitted he had an affair but opposes gay marriage is a hypocrite because his having an affair is more of a threat to traditional marriage than homosexual marriage... but another guy (D) is a hero for having an affair with a male prostitute... while studies show homosexuals are most promiscuous and most likely to commit adultery and in addition are the most likely to commit domestic violence vs traditional marriage partners.
So who is the bigger hypocrite and who is the "bigger threat" to marriage according to the left's own criteria. (rhetorical question) Perhaps those who throw stones shouldn't hide behind glass walls.
Senator Ensign will end up resigning... while Barney Frank gets appointed to high level positions in the Obama admin. and continues to get phatt off of the failed housing industry.
Beyond hypocrisy.... Republicans are no saints, but the culture of corruption on the Democrat side boggles the mind.
