Whited Sepulchre Mark Souder Repents When He Gets Discovered

May 18, 2010

Doesn't he just LOOK smarmy?

Deeply repentant (after he got caught) Republican congressman Mark Souder has resigned because he has sinned against God, his wife, and his family by having an affair with his staffer. This Christian paragon of “family values” denied rumours all through his recent primary. In fact, the rumours had been going around since 2008.

But he used his “family values” to turn his hypocritical infidelity to political advantage, as this Fox News article says (“Indiana Rep. Mark Souder to Resign Amid Allegations of Affair With Staffer“):

All the way through his election, Souder tried to knock down the affair story, calling it revenge politics at play. But the backroom chatter in Indiana and among the GOP on Capitol Hill became too much to survive.

Isn’t that rich? When he wasn’t caught, he lied through his teeth and blamed the Democrats (implicitly) for playing politics, when it was really he who was playing politics and trying to gain advantage from it.

But he’s oh-so-religious and repentant once he’s been caught, as a Washington Post article describes:

Indiana congressman Mark Souder’s resignation, announced Tuesday, came after anonymous tipsters called his aides and his opponents in a Republican primary to say he was having an extramarital affair with a part-time staffer, according to sources familiar with the calls.

This entity has campaigned on “family values” and has tried to destroy other people’s families because they were different from his, for eight terms. The uncovering of his filthy hypocrisy didn’t come nearly soon enough.

Wonder what that Jesus guy would say about stuff like this:

Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam [is] in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.¬† – Matthew 7:1-5

Oh, but never mind. What would Jesus know about campaigning on “family values” and lying through one’s teeth?
