Did You Know - Bob Barr

Bob Barr is a Republican Congressman from Georgia. In 1996 he co-sponsored the Defense of Marriage Act, one provision of which would have stopped any states from allowing homosexuals to marry. Regarding his sponsorship, her declared "the flames of self-centered morality are licking at the very foundations of our society, the family unit." A few years later it was revealed that Bob had been sued by the second of his three wives for withholding child support. She also claimed that her staunchly pro-life ex-husband (Bob) had paid for her to have an abortion in 1983.

As I keep reminding you, the need to publicly proclaim support for moral issues usually means the person on the soapbox feels the need for external controls over his/her inner demons. Interesting, isn't it, that he's been married three times, yet feels there's something inherently good about keeping a marriage together? Yet another asshole.
