A Congressional Candidate Who Really Supports Traditional Family Values

Speaking of little Ricky's support for only heterosexual relationships and how, as the Senator from VA says, we need the Marriage Protection Amendment to end the extreme "harm" beings done by the obviously un-Christian act of treating people "nicely", we now have additional evidence of the exquisite nature of the moral superiority of Republican "pro-family" politicos. Californian Republican congressional candidate Jim Galley has been running on Repubevangelical "pro-traditional family" platform. Unlike many men, Galley has shown no signs of commitmment issues and is a huge supporter of marriage - provided the marriage is between a man and a woman, of course. Like many "traditional family" Republican politicians, he's even made that sacred, life-long, committment to marriage twice. While his two marriages don't, exactly make him the uber-traditional marriage supporter like Newt Gingrich or Rush Limbaugh, he has added to his "traditional" only credibility by comitting bigamy. Yes, it appears as though Galley was so eager to ensure women without husbands didn't end up marrying other women (as would be forced upon them if America doesn't protect marriage from the gays), he married his second wife, Beth, in 1982 while he was still married to Mrs. Terry Galley. Beth Galley divorced him in 1990 after accusing him of spousal abuse and filing a restraining order against him. He's also been accused of defaulting on child support payments to his first wife.

For his own part, 50-year old Galley, writes the concurrent marriages off as a youthful indiscretion noting he thought the divorce from his first wife was final. He also explained that his second wife trumped up charges for the restraining order to get him out of the house and that he only defaulted on the child support payments for a few months. Still, you can't help but think that Galley is such a beautiful example of how right Rick Santorum is when he points out that homosexuality is what's destroying the superb traditional moral fiber of the great American tapestry. I just wonder if the girl pictured next to Galley (above) is what stands in the way of my dream of a happy hetero (and life-long) marriage to the traditionalist.
