Bush? Homewrecker? That’s Just Sick

Powers at Malkin points to CBS News and Sally Quinn blaming the 2000 election loss as a negative impact on their marriage.

If there is shred #1 of truth to Wikipedia’s stating that Al Gore is a Baptist, then the reasons for the separation are between them and the Almighty. Were I to counsel any Christian man in this situation I’d counsel three things:

  1. Repent
  2. Repent
  3. Repent

While Pagans go around treating marriage like a garment to be changed at will, a Christian man who has been joined by God to a woman and is one flesh with her had better understand that the evil of divorce will be required of him.

What profiteth it a man to gain the White House and lose his soul? Did Al Gore have such anyway, or did stints in the Senate and as Vice President leech it out of him? If this was a marriage of convenience that was built on the sandy foundation of a Presidential hope, then tut, tut, Al. The highest honor with which you can depart life is “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” Sure, we can’t support an electoral system navigable by less than a megalomaniac, but that’s supposed to be a jest.

Al, you and Jimmy Carter are two men whom I really would like to be able to respect, but who have debased yourselves, your country, and your faith. I’ve personally ripped your actions mercilessly, but I pray for you that you repent and return to the Christ who is the only meaning you can find in this sick and dying world. An Oscar, a Nobel prize. If you confess your sins, He is faithful and just to forgive them. The public will forgive you, too, if you show a pattern of sincere repentance. It may not trust you with anything more substantial than a lemonade stand, but, well, forgiveness was never an abdication of the future. When you have cleansed your soul, hopefully you can return to the wife of your youth.

I truly hope you get better, Al.

This post makes scant mention of Tipper, and there is a reason for that. In my chauvinistic view, the man is slightly more responsible to the Almighty for defending the marriage. A lady blogger is welcome to critique Tipper; that’s not my task.

    I think the money and the Hollywood glitz has gone to his head. He’ll be squiring around a much younger woman before the year is out.

    More likely, his father beat it out of him, while grooming him to run for President.

    Who is this Bush you speak of? His kung fu must be quite powerful.

    I can’t imagine the torture of spending 40 minutes with Al Gore, much less 40 years.

    Al Gore being a Baptist is probably just a prop in his “I’m a Tennessean” act. We all know he was born and raised in DC and his daddy only kept him a residence in TN for political purposes, as you have to have an address to run for office.

    Maybe it was Tipper who pulled the plug, tiring of being ignored and left at home while Big Al strutted the world stage. Or maybe she just got too old for such a sexy powerhouse as himself, and there’s a hot young thing waiting in the wings. Who knows? Frankly, who cares?

    Smitty: I am sitting trying to say “profiteth” five timesth in a throw and having itthues…almost fergot what I wath trying to thay….

    I speculated today on the Tipper CYA theory:
    Because of impending Climate-gate, and possible liability, she is jettisoning him while there is still cash to be had….
    OR
    The whole thing is nothing but a financial deal to transfer assets to her so that they don’t lose their ass(ets) when he gets sued, and I hope indicted and I hope convicted and jailed for the despicable fraud he has perpetrated for 20 years.
