What is it About Repugs and Sex?

While Republicans pose heroically as the avatars of all goodness and light and persecute President Clinton for a consensual blowjob, behind the scenes they're a bunch of truly sick fucks. Excuse my Anglo-Saxon, but it's the only term that fits. Just to mention a few examples, we have Arianna's former husband Michael who turned out to be gay. We have the former husband of "Six of Nine" Jeri Ryan taking her to sex clubs and trying to get her to perform in front of others. We have Spokane's gay bashing mayor Jim West who turns out to be, surprise surprise, a closeted gay himself. And on, and on, and on, ad infinitum. Now we can add to this long and puke-worthy list of hypocrites Dr. David Hager, W's favorite Ob-Gyn who he tried to appoint to be head of the FDA. What did this sick Repug fuck do?

When Hager's nomination to the FDA was announced in the fall of 2002, his conservative Christian beliefs drew sharp criticism from Democrats and prochoice groups. David Limbaugh, the lesser light in the Limbaugh family and author of Persecution: How Liberals Are Waging Political War Against Christianity, said the left had subjected Hager to an "anti-Christian litmus test." Hager's valor in the face of this "religious profiling" earned him the praise and lasting support of evangelical Christians, including such luminaries as Charles Colson, Dr. James Dobson and Franklin Graham, son of the Rev. Billy Graham.

Back at Asbury, Hager cast himself as a victim of religious persecution in his sermon. "You see...there is a war going on in this country," he said gravely. "And I'm not speaking about the war in Iraq. It's a war being waged against Christians, particularly evangelical Christians. It wasn't my scientific record that came under scrutiny [at the FDA]. It was my faith.... By making myself available, God has used me to stand in the breach.... Just as he has used me, he can use you."

Up on the dais, several men seated behind Hager nodded solemnly in agreement. But out in the audience, Linda Carruth Davis--co-author with Hager of Stress and the Woman's Body, and, more saliently, his former wife of thirty-two years--was enraged. "It was the most disgusting thing I've ever heard," she recalled months later, through clenched teeth.

According to Davis, Hager's public moralizing on sexual matters clashed with his deplorable treatment of her during their marriage. Davis alleges that between 1995 and their divorce in 2002, Hager repeatedly sodomized her without her consent. Several sources on and off the record confirmed that she had told them it was the sexual and emotional abuse within their marriage that eventually forced her out. "I probably wouldn't have objected so much, or felt it was so abusive if he had just wanted normal [vaginal] sex all the time," she explained to me. "But it was the painful, invasive, totally nonconsensual nature of the [anal] sex that was so horrible."

That's right. This particular sick Repug bastard, who wears his fake Christianity like a cloak of purity, sodomized his wife without her consent and abused her in other ways. Read the entire article, have a bucket handy, and wonder why these people, who claim to be able to dictate morality to my partner and me, are so thoroughly screwed up sexually.

UPDATE: I'd forgotten about the anti-abortion zealot who admitted to bestiality (!). Just too darn many pervs to keep track of, y'know? OrangeClouds 115 at Daily Kos updates us here.
