No Way Gerald Long

United States

#1 Oct 15, 2007
I am personally aware that Gerald Long and his wife make appearances at the funeral home when they never knew the deceased or the family.

I consider this to be as low as one can go on the slime meter.

I have no respect for, and would never vote for, someone that would impose himself on grief stricken family at such a difficult time. His visit was purely political and in no way to bring comfort to the family. Shame on you Gerald Long.

OH Good Grief!!!

This is standard practice for the run-of-the-mill politician. You should be niether surprised or shocked at this behavior. I have personally seen candidates at functions this time of year they would normally never go to. It is the way of the race.

I have seen it for myself, but didn't bring it up. I do know that he showed up at a non baptist church on Second street on one of the last couple of Sundays and asked to deliever the day's message, was denied, asked to just have a minute to talk, was denied. I don't think he was denied because he is a bad person or not of that faith, but because it is totally out of place to ask such a thing.

Amen! Exactly why I consider him SLIME. He has no boundaries - and he talks about ethics - where are his ethics - no way to Gerald Long.

The Democrats have been paying huge sums of money for years during election time to certain Preachers to deliver the vote and you wing nuts have never had a problem with that......get real.Politicians from all political persuasions have been going to churches for years speaking from the pulpit.One thing for certain TT would have a hard time doing it with a straight face.

Actually, I do hate them. I feel the same about Hillary. Does that mean I have to agree with Mr. Long and his ways?

ANY ONE WHO KNOWS GERALD AND ROSE LONG KNOW THEY ARE GOOD CHRISTIAN PEOPLE. NONE OF YOU HAVE ANY REAL BASIS TO CALL GERALD SLIME.

I HAVE SAID THIS BEFORE, IT IS CALLED DESPERATION!

Just Checking,I was not real happy when Fletcher showed up at church I went to many years ago and he spoke from the pulpit .I challenge everyone on this board to go back and look at how much money goes to these preachers and their surrogates from the Democrat candidates and this election will be no different.So im sure you have a major problem with that.

The truth hurts. My cousin was at the funeral home when Gerald showed up and introduced himself and that he he was running for the Senate.

This is disgusting.

Doesn't really matter what you or myself think, it happened in the last two to three Sundays. As for the funeral home deal, that has been going on for over a year.

Pat, it is time to give it up. Let the people elect who they want to elect and quit starting your crap. Both candidates are doing a fine job without you.

Anyone (GL or TT) that can stroll into a funeral home with the intent of serving themselves at the expense of the dead and the grieving family and friends is SLIME. I absolutely dread going to a funeral home and only do it out of respect for the deceased and their family. I would never stoop to this level and do not care to be associated with or represented by anyone who would do such a thing.

If this conduct (preying (not praying) on the departed) is being a good Christian, then God help us.

You clowns must not get out much,Pols going to funerals is an age old tradition in Louisiana and your selective outrage is exposing yall for the kool aid drinking frauds that you are..........Every funeral I've been to in the last several years have had many Pols show up to show respect to the family.Absolutly nothing out of the ordinary with this.

I've lived in Natchitoches for 21 years and have seen politicians at funerals just like anyone else who would like to go and pay their respects. The first time I ever saw a politician walk into funeral home and start asking people if they were regisitered to vote and ask for their support was a few months ago at the funeral of a young mother! Yep it was GL. I was shocked and disgusted and because I had liked the man I tried to justify it, forget it or anything. That has the beginning of my change of intention of who I was going to vote for. After that too many questionable things started coming to light.
This is one Christian mama who just doesn't trust him.
