MARK SOUDER, ANOTHER REPUBLICAN SHAMELESS HYPOCRITE
Like the biblical pharisees who preached, 'do what I say but not what I do;' eight term Republican Representative from northeast Indiana, Mark Souder, has been caught with his pants down, an unfaithful husband, lying father, cheating grandfather and an phony evangelical christian? He preached his Mark Souder's styled gospel of abstinence type of family planning while zealously propagating traditional marriage values, including anti-gay sentiments? He has also been parading himself as a holier than thou, family value man evangelical Christian? Now he wants to blame it on the devil, whose temptation he could not stand, as he fell face-down in sin, indulging in extra-marital affairs with one of his married staffers? Icheoku says, Jesus Christ was afterall right when he admonished, 'he who is without sin should throw the first stone; and William Shakespeare was equally right on the money when he wrote that 'there is no way of understanding the mind's construction by merely looking at the face?' So who on earth expected a supposed 'man of God' to be found wanting and in such compromising position of a fall from grace? But give it up for the republicans for who anything and everything scandalous is possible - who find bimbo temptress and young teenage boys always irresistible, leading to a cascading avalanche of victims? But fairness to goodness, catholic priests and their bishops as well as some democrats equally share in this hall of shame.
Republicans make Icheoku particularly mad because they are against everything modern and if left for some of their vociferous opinion leaders, majority of Americans and the world will still be leading a "conservative life" of the wagon days? They are great pretenders, whose middle-name should pass for equivocation and conflicted; and are the worst confusionists-culprits walking the face of America! Now enter their Mark Souder, to the hall of infamy of lecherous and philandering married 'ole boys' of the Republican party, who was just forced by the developing scandal to resign his membership of the House of Representatives due to a revealed ongoing affair with a married woman staffer and member of his communication team. In his pre-resignation "sorry I get caught" words of contrition, Representative Mark Souder in his own words said, "I am so ashamed to have hurt the ones I love. I am sorry to have let so many friends down, people who have worked so hard for me. I sinned against God, my wife and my family by having a mutual relationship with a part-time member of my staff." To mark Souder, Icheoku says, you should in addition be sorry for all those people you crucified because of their own human foibles, since you have now admitted and owned up to the double-life you led all these years, condemning people who have sinned while living in a mortal sin yourself? Mark Souder equally sinned against gays, lesbians, trans-genders, as well as his fellow adulterers and all such other human beings that periodically fall from grace? But now that Mark Souder has joined the real humanity, wherein everyone sins, Icheoku asks, will his position remain resolute or have he learnt some real lessons of life? If only he read and understood the lessons of the bible well enough to know that the Lord Master, Jesus Christ, preempted all these judgmental opinionated teachings about human short-comings when he gave teachings on "Thous shall not judge," "Do not cast the first stone,".and "Remove the log in your own eyes first?" As an instructive lesson, Mark's fall from grace could be summed up, as great! It will be noted that Mark Souder hinged his public persona on evangelical Christianity and fiercely pushed his religious views as well as his uncompromising utra-conservative, puritan positions on virtually all social issues such as gays and abortion? He once used the parameter of "committed and faithful relationship" as a prerequisite benchmark for anyone to have before engaging in sex of any kind?Icheoku asks "Mr. committed and faithful," whether he was committed and faithful to his wife of Christian marriage and if so, what happen or did he just fall to the seductive power of an irresistible tempting temptress? If only the Mark Souders of the republican party could cut other people some slack and understand that humanity is not God but are fallible; and stop all these their 'holier than thou' pontifications of God said this, God did not say that' preachings; may be most people will understand that his infra-dig 'to air is human?' But no, they will not yield any ground and would rather children become destitute than be adopted by loving gay-parents, since according to them God did not sanction such parenthood; and you wonder if God speaks to only these republican whack-jobs? They also would not stay alive and watch same sex loving couple tie the nuptial while some of their "Christian married couples have divorced so many times that they have lost counts? Now and suddenly, disgraced Mark Souder has just realized that Washington, his abode for the over 16 years he was in Congress, is a poisonous environment? Icheoku says, instead of Mark Souder now resigning because "he did not want to drag his family into a painful, drawn out process;" may be he should have thought about that their pain before he unzipped his amorous pants and let out his mojo? It is also worth mention that Mark Souder has been married to his wife, Diane, for 36 long years with three grown adult children and two grandchildren. What a wonderful role-model, this congressman is, especially to his grand-children who will now possibly be taunted by their fellow students, as having an amorous grand-dad? Also his district is Fort-Wayne in northeast Indiana which was once represented by the vice presidential candidate who could not spell 'POTATO,' Dan Quayle! So much for a party known more for their equivocation and deceitful showmanship than a productive stand on any issue - the party of NO.
