The Gadfly has, on more than a few occasions during his prolific blogging career, found cause to make the proclamation that most of the politicians in this country who are outspoken about their Christianity, are just out and out flaming hypocrites and ignorant frauds.
And what exactly, do you dear reader surely inquire, gives The Gadfly the right to question the genuineness of these good, decent Christian politician's faith?
Well - since you asked . . . .

That was Texas Loony Toons Congress critter Louie Gohmert (who rumor has it, has disco dancing squirrels juggling knives inside his head) quoting Solomon, the hedonist son of David and Bathsheba from the Book of Kings in the Old Testament, in a priceless effort to voice his opposition to the Supreme Court's decision on gay marriage.
So where does the hypocrisy, ignorance and fraud come in to play in that video clip, you dear reader may ask?
Well - for starters - King Solomon is quite the curious, and arguably creative, choice for Congressman Gohmert to put forth as a qualified spokesman on the subject of marriage sanctity -- considering that the man, during his 80 purported years of life, had amassed an impressive stable of 700 wives and 300 concubines. The wives, according to scripture, were all foreign princesses, and the concubines - well - let us just refer to them as "ladies of the evening" - m'kay?
The Gadfly only broaches this subject because he is truly pretty fucking sick and tired of the Louie Gohmerts of the world employing cynical ignorance of their own religion as an attack weapon and a divisive force against those whom they have political disagreements with - and even more so while simultaneously collecting a paycheck on the taxpaying public's dime.
So Louie, Louie -- go pound holy sand you phony dumb ass and keep your Saturday morning cartoon religious visions to yourself. On that note - please do also take some time out of your busybody life of making other people's lives miserable to actually read your precious Bible - you just might learn something useful from it. . . . on second thought - scratch that suggestion . . . just go pound holy sand.
