14. No, not really ...

 

One last one. Family values and sanctity of marriage. Now, that of course is code for hating on gays, but let me just say. If I know 100 people who are divorced who have some political leanings, 80% of them are republicans. Very few outward liberal types do I know that are divorced.

One friend, a fairly prominent local republican party type, when I first knew him was on all this liberals are immoral scumbags thing. After a few years I was around him talking to someone about his "girlfriend." Turns out, his third marriage ...


I don't think it's just code for hating on gays ... more, it's just B.S.

Yes, my friend is a family values, sanctity of marriage kind of person. But from the beginning of our relationship (he and his wife are my daughter's "god-parents" ... My wife worked with his wife before I came into the picture), I've felt a really strange vibe. I once saw the husband of a third couple, grab this guy's wife's ass ... okay, we were all drunk; but she didn't act surprised or protest. On another occasion, I was swimming in their pool and the wife of another one of their friends, stripped down to her panties and, without a word, dove into the pool (bra off) and swam across the pool to me, rubbed between my legs and smiled. (I got out the pool and told the wife, "time to go."

I've told my wife that I believe them to be swingers, but she insisted I'm crazy. Until on another occasion, we were at a party and our friend's wife (drunk again) started talking about collecting the husbands' keys for a "key party."

Family values and sanctity of marriage ... my ass.
