Typical GOP/Mormon hypocrisy. I'm sure if his daughter got pregnant he'd head for the nearest (well, probably farthest) Planned Parenthood clinic to take care of his sweetie's little mistake. Can't wait to hear about his gay grandchildren!

At least his male prostitute was smart enough not to get in the car with him.

Wait, a conservative MORMON caught drunk driving? Oh, I got my first present this morning! Why does this taste so sweet? It proves that a hater has BIG issues that make him hate. He has enough demons to fill a scary movie.

He's an ANTI gay senator, you idiot. You should be out there paying his bail since you approve of his hatred so much.

Are your reading skills so faulty that you cannot even read a headline correctly? The FIRST word is "Anti", but all you saw was "gay".

Typical hater, ill informed and lazy.

What's Not on the Mormon Menu

Like many aspects of the LDS religion, the duty to maintain good health has its roots in revelation, in this case a section of the Doctrine and Covenants that Mormons call the Word of Wisdom. The legend surrounding its origin is that Joseph Smith and other early LDS leaders used to chew tobacco during Church meetings, spitting juices on the floor. Joseph's wife, Emma Hale Smith, was disgusted by this act, and her complaints led the Prophet to ask God whether tobacco use was really appropriate for Latter-day Saints.

The Lord's response, contained in D&C section 89, covered far more than just tobacco; it also restricted the consumption of wine, liquor, meat, and hot drinks (today interpreted to mean tea and coffee of any temperature). Although many Mormons understand this scripture as suggesting that all caffeine is bad and should be avoided, this idea isn't official Church doctrine; the Church allows members to decide that issue for themselves, and some members choose to drink cola.

Some people wonder whether Mormons get kicked out of the Church for kicking back a few. The answer is no: Basic Church membership isn't contingent upon keeping the Word of Wisdom. However, members with Word of Wisdom problems can't hold priesthood callings or get a temple recommend. So although nobody gets excommunicated for smoking a cigarette or being spotted in Starbuck's, the full blessings of Church membership, including temple attendance, are reserved for those who walk the straight and narrow path.

Thank you for showing all of us that even on Christmas Day, just a few days after a massacre of a mother and over a dozen school children, your hate of gays and lesbians is the main focus in your life.

FTA:
"Crapo is one of the nine Republicans who filed an amicus brief to sustain DOMA earlier this year. He also also voted against repealing DADT, against a comprehensive hate crimes law and for a constitutional amendment prohibiting same-sex marriage. Wonder if we'll ever get an apology for those mistakes..."

Ever notice that these "religious types" always expect forgiveness from everyone when they get caught doing things they preach against? But they never offer forgiveness to the people they want to persecute?

And folks like you always deflect any attention to their own faults.

Tell us, do you cross your fingers when you say the Lord's Prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance?

Of course you do. It's much easier to condemn others than it is to face your own faults.

LOL at Crapo. Love that name! Sen. Crapo!

He’s probably just another “wide stance” Republican senator. Let’s see, he’s a Mormon who doesn’t drink arrested for DUI with a high blood alcohol content. Hmm...he’s also strongly anti-gay, of course, which begs the question “Why?”

Was he caught driving alone after drinking alcohol at a gay bar?

He’s sorry he got caught. Damage control.

Indeed it would, Karma. But my “driving from a gay bar” hypothesis was just an intuitive gut reaction, as in (antigay)+(disingenuous Republican senator)=(another closeted gay Republican senator).

But then, maybe he was just driving from a girlfriend’s or call girl’s house, or drinking alone to calm the shakes, or some Republican senators’ drunken Christmas orgy, or some Mormon senators’ drunken Christmas orgy, or....

I'm not an everyday defect that needs to sensationalize any of my behavior no matter how right or wrong it may be and if it happens to be wrong, which is rare, it is done so discreetly. Decriminalize reef.

Lipstick, how might one demonstrate defective behavior discretely. Just curious. Does being discrete involve not getting caught at transgressions?

Perhaps you could illustrate by describing one of those rare incidents from your own life.
