Hypocrisy in Alabama

How Come The Gay-Hating Men Love to Sleep with Guys?

It's becoming old hat by now. Here's the latest heir to Larry "Wide Stance" Craig.

Remember ... There have been scientific studies that show the most homophobic males are also the most stimulated by homosexual videos. Here's the latest entry.

By the bye ... this makes me wonder about some of the guys who are most strident on the HoBD list.

Thanks to the AVN:

Alabama's Anti-Gay Attorney General Caught in Bed with Male Aide
By Mark Kernes

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Okay; who said the following?

"The existence of the Gay-Lesbian Alliance on this campus is an affront to the state of Alabama, its citizenry, this university and its students."

"Currently, AIDS is the most behavior-oriented disease known to mankind. If this nation's current purveyors of perversion would refrain from committing sodomy, they would unquestioningly be spared the ravages of the disease."

"It is indeed sad that America has fallen to the point where she will condone any type of deviant, immoral activity in which a group desires to participate."

"I often hear the argument that homosexuals who live together create a loving, caring family environment, perhaps an environment which is even superior to that which can be provided by a heterosexual couple. In this day of rampant decadence, many homosexuals would mislead society into believing that three men, an armadillo and a house plant create a functional family."

If you guessed "Troy King, Attorney General of Alabama," give yourself a cigar!

That would be the same Troy King who, within the last couple of weeks - no exact date available - was caught by his wife Paige in bed with a male aide - in fact, a former "Homecoming King" from King's undergraduate days at Troy University - and subsequently thrown out of the couple's house.

Of course, King is best known to AVN readers as the current defendant in retailer Sherri Williams' fight to legalize the sale of "obscene devices" - adult novelties whose purpose is sexual stimulation - in the Eleventh Circuit (Alabama, Georgia, Florida), which case has been before a trial court three times, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals twice, and was recently rejected for certiorari by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Williams' case will also be the subject of a segment on ABC's "20/20" this Friday night.

"I don't know Troy King any more than having sat across the table from him during appeals hearings," Williams told AVN today. "But in my experience, it's the guys that are the guiltiest that prosecute the hardest."

The 40-year-old King, according to his Wikipedia entry, has three children, is a practicing Baptist, is anti-abortion - he once decried "the terrible 'cleansing' of the wombs that is carried on in the butcher shops we call abortion clinics" - attended the University of Alabama Law School and has been involved in several scandals while serving as Alabama's Attorney General, a job he obtained after his predecessor, Bill Pryor, was elevated to the Eleventh Circuit bench by President Bush in a recess appointment.

But while rumors that Gov. Bob Riley will ask for King's resignation in the wake of the bedroom discovery are unconfirmed, the announcement that King was named to be state campaign chairman of presidential candidate John McCain's Leadership Team in Alabama has been removed from McCain's Website, and King's hopes to succeed Riley as governor in 2010 appear to be over as well.

After all, as someone reportedly advised Lyndon Johnson as he was beginning his first term as U.S. Senator from Texas, "Once elected, a politician can stay in office until they are caught in bed with a dead prostitute or a live boy."

This is getting just so tiresome, isn't it? It happens over and over again. Why in the world do they think they won't get exposed (as it were)?

Cany, I sometimes think they've already covered the "hypocrite" checkbox by letting folks identify as Republicans.

Bad Lisa! Bad!

Mind you, there are a few Republicans who are my friends. I don't so much mind their being Republicans ... if only they would refrain from acting on that proclivity. ;-)

Cranmer49, you're right. Maybe they're just not smart enough to run the country. Ya think?

The sad thing is that they have so much invested in their own hypocrisy and self-loathing that they become frantic to maintain the anti-gay status quo. Otherwise, their whole lives are shown to be built on sand, if other gay men can be out, proud, and happy.

That's a good insight, IT. Thank you.

Sometimes I actually feel sorry for them.
