Do As I Say, Not As I Do

And this is why, when people say they vote for good Christian candidates, they should get their heads examined.

In the state of Tennessee, there is a Republican Rep named Scott DesJarlais.  He ran for re-election to the House in his heavily conservative district and won.  His web site states specifically that, "All life should be cherished and protected.  We are pro-life."

In 2001, DesJarlais was getting a divorce from his wife.  Among the things to come from those transcripts:

*  He had a mistress

*  She became pregnant, and he tried to convince her to have an abortion.

*  His then wife had two abortions herself, first because she was afraid of birth defects from drugs she was taking at the time, and the second because the marriage was in danger.

DesJarlais was a doctor before he became a congressman.

What's that about, "Physician, heal thyself?"
