<quoted text> Huh? Sexual orientation is not an "inclination" and is not "sinful." Only an ignorant, homophobic Bible banger would make such a stupid statement. And sexual orientation IS NOT a choice.
I suggest you take some basic Science 101 or Biology classes to help you out. There is NOTHING natural about homosexualiy. Unnatural = immoral. Get it?

Must have been a while since you took a science or biology class.

Homosexuality has been considered a normative behavior for 30 years.

And dozens of species display gay behaviora as well.

Are two male penguins who form a sexual bond "immoral"?

As someone who rarely votes republican, my thought is, why should this matter? Can we please just get over our hangups with sex?
The reason why it matters is Republican "Moral Majority" is anti gay...add to this a porn star and thier "Family Values" go right out the window

So what? Were they engaged in a sexual act on the restaurant table? This is a private matter. Both are adults; nothing illegal happened. This is no one's business. Leave it to the homophobic Republicans to try to make something of this. Don't we have more important things to worry about in the legislature than someone's sexual preference. The Pioneer Press should be ashamed of itself for even publishing this.

I disagree. This senator has a seared conscience and the public should know. Thank you Pioneer Press.

I could care less if a senator has dinner with a gay porn star, heck a gay porn star just screws a few willing people for money. Now oil execs, THOSE guys screw whole states full of unwilling people for money. I know which kind of guy I want staying away from politicians.

Shame on us.Leave this respetable queer pervert alone. At least he is not a certified twenty year Sunday church racist like Obama the president. Also, as far as we know he did not refuse to accept his draft notice like Billy Bob Clinton the draft dodger did. Clinton also was accused of raping two women in Arkansas while Attorney General.

Haha, I love the backpedalling here by the right. If the story were about a Dem doing the same thing, they would have a heyday. But no no no no, this isn't a big deal, nothing to see here!!!! You all are hilarious/pathetic - good entertainment though.

BTW I don't belong to either side, I think for myself. Just find the hypocrisy of it all to be quite amusing.
