David Vitter: Another Victim of Gay Marriage

In 2004 when David Vitter was running for Senator in Louisiana, he warned of the terrible toll gay marriage would have on our society. In statement on "Protecting the Sanctity of Marriage" he said, "The Hollywood left is redefining the most basic institution in human history, and our two U.S. Senators won't do anything about it. We need a U.S. Senator who will stand up for Louisiana values, not Massachusetts's values. I am the only Senate Candidate to coauthor the Federal Marriage Amendment; the only one fighting for its passage." Vitter once compared the devastation of gay marriage to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, which as someone from Louisiana should know is pretty destructive, and said during the debate on the amendment, "I don't believe there's any issue that's more important than this one."

Despite his efforts, however, the Federal Marriage Amendment failed to pass and Massachusetts did redefine marriage by legalizing gay marriage. With the sanctity of marriage so severely degraded it was inevitable that Vitter's own marriage would suffer. Yesterday, we learned of the terrible personal cost to Vitter when it was revealed that his telephone number appeared in the records of the "DC Madam," Deborah Jeane Palfrey, which were released online.

"This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible," he said in a statement released by his office. "Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling. Out of respect for my family, I will keep my discussion of the matter there--with God and them. But I certainly offer my deep and sincere apologies to all I have disappointed and let down in any way."

Though it is very magnanimous of Vitter to accept responsibility for his transgressions, is he really to blame? After the Hollywood left redefined marriage, it must have been a very difficult and confusing time for him. The failure of the passage of the Federal Marriage Amendment must have taken a severe toll on him as he struggled to figure out what marriage really is if even gays can do it. As he grappled with the issue, is it any surprise that he found solace in the embrace of a disinterested paid companion?

Rated 100% by the Christian Coalition for his pro-family voting record and his support of such issues as abstinence-only sex education, Vitter first went to Congress in 1999 when he was elected to fill the seat vacated by Speaker of the House Robert Livingston after it was revealed that Livingston, who had attacked Clinton for the Monica Lewinsky affair, had himself had extramarital affairs. (In fact, Clinton's support of the Defense of Marriage Act may have been an acknowledgment of the role gay marriage played in his own transgressions.) Vitter later had to scuttle plans to run for governor when a newspaper planned to write a story about an affair he was having with a New Orleans prostitute. "Our [marriage] counseling sessions have ... led us to the rather obvious conclusion that it's not time to run for governor," he said. Already the insidious influence of gay marriage was starting to weaken his own marriage.

Vitter is a strong supporter of Rudolph Giuliani, who also knows about the havoc that gay marriage, and just being around gay people, can have on real marriages. Giuliani's problems with his marriage were probably the result of his association with the gay couple he lived with after he was thrown out of Gracie Mansion by his wife because he was having an affair with another woman. When Vitter was appointed as Giuliani's Southern Regional Chairman, he said, "It's very clear to me that he's not running for president to advance some liberal social agenda" and the contact that he has had with good family men like Vitter already seems to have changed Giuliani's position on gays.

The nefarious influence of gay marriage is already spreading around the country as Errol Louis points out in a column in the New York Daily News. "There are disturbing signs all over the country that conservatives were right to predict that proponents of odd and radical sexual practices would try to slip through the political and legal doors opened by the gay rights movement," he wrote yesterday of the slippery slope of gay marriage. "Advocates of same-sex marriage should recognize that you don't have to be a religious fanatic or a bigot to wonder, with a certain uneasiness, where all of this is heading," said Louis, who no doubt realizes that the loosening of the meaning of marriage began with the Supreme Court's 1967 Loving v. Virginia case, which overturned miscegenation laws. Mildred Loving herself recently acknowledged the case's ramifications when she came out in favor of gay marriage on the 40th anniversary of the case. Hopefully, our new Supreme Court will overturn this ill-considered ruling soon.

It is unfortunate that liberals, who like to pry into people's personal lives, felt it necessary to divulge information about Vitter's sexual transgressions when God and his wife already told him that they forgave him. Although we don't know what God said, we do know that his wife's forgiveness seems to be a bit of a change from what she said in 2000 about Hillary Clinton's response to the Monica Lewinsky scandal. "I'm a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt than Hillary. If he does something like that, I'm walking away with one thing, and it's not alimony, trust me," she said, referring to the woman who famously emasculated her husband with a kitchen knife. If she hasn't already carried out this threat, then perhaps it is because she, too, realizes that her husband was powerless to stop himself in the face of the threat gay marriage poses.

I wonder what it is going to take wake America up to the damage gay marriage has already done. To the long list of gay marriage casualties, which includes Britney Spears, Ted Haggard and Rudy Giuliani, we can now add another name. How many more is it going to take? For the sake of David Vitter's marriage, I hope that Congress revives the Federal Marriage Amendment and renames it the David Vitter Marriage Amendment, in honor of one man who tragically exemplifies the havoc that gay marriage has wrought in our society.

You are correct, gays and jews are responsible for the decline of our great nation. I am a good Christian. We should all thank God that he didn't wasn't so lost and confused that that poor innocent man didn't end up being taken advantage of by a male prostitute.

Wow. Just: Wow. Thank you sir.

Just look at Hollywood: full of gays, and normal stars reacting to them by acting promiscuously and ruining their own good straight marriages. Excellent article!

Dear Mr. Swift,

How correct you are! I live in Massachusetts and the roaring lakes of hellfire which opened up a little over three years ago when gay marriage was first declared legal are quite annoying.

Also, no straight people here are married anymore, air pollution and crime are up and it is nearly impossible to find a truly scrumptious cannoli!

I curse the day those judges - well, and then those legislators - said it was o.k. for the gays to marry. Our lives will never be the same.

Thank you for illuminating this horrible, terrible, horrible problem so eloquently!

Come on doodle bean; you are being more than a little disingenuous here. Everyone knows that it is illegal aliens who are responsible for the sad decline in quality cannoli.

It might be worthwhile to note that a study sponsored by our very own government found abstinence-only education to be completely ineffective in preventing young people from having sex, let alone postponing the deed.

Vitter's fall was entirely his own fault, how dare you blame it on the confusion he faced in the wake of failing at his job. He's just another horny, unfaithful, straight republican.

I would also like to see some sort of scientific data backing up your alleged cause of moral erosion as gay marriage. If you were comfortable with your own sexuality, maybe you would not need to attack everyone else for being themselves. I am straight and engaged, and I have absolutely no problem with other people loving each other. I would rather hear about the successes of gay marriage than the woes of so-called traditional marriage. If you call yourself a Christian, you should be ashamed of all the hate you perpetuate.

This is sooo true. As a staunch supporter of gay marriage, as well as a perfected (who practices these days?) homosexual, I know I am mandated by law to spend at least several hours a day kicking at the pillars of America's finest institution.

Unfortunately, for some of us, the workload is so strenuous that many folks have completely lost their senses of irony and/or sarcasm. I'm not naming any names... you know... other than Tim.

archer said...

Stop boosting gay marriage. Gay marriage devalues wedlock just the way integrated lunch counters devalued the BLT.

liquiddaddy said...

Mr. Swift,

It could be that Rep. Vitter succumbed to temptation while ministering to the fallen flowers of the escort service. Something similar happened to Ted Haggard when he and his Holy Man Posse caste their net into he seemy underground gay bar scene in Denver. When leaders such as these look to make change, sometimes it is necessary to go hands-on.

Exposure to the pink menace comes with the territory much as missionaries of the past battled yellow fever or swamp gas. God help these patriots.


Mark said...

I'd like to hear more about how gay marriage affects the ozone layer - surely it's worse than driving an SUV. David Vitter was a visionary to see this coming, and shame on the dirty liberal media for scaring him into a confession when he didn't even do anything wrong. Just because he telephoned a notorious DC Madame doesn't mean they talked about sexy stuff.

Not to mention the busyness of modern life preventing these good American from recognizing one of the great essayists in English literature.

fairlane said...

Interesting take.

I was just surprised a Republican man actually had sex with a Woman, and not a Congressional Page or his step-son.

And no mention of Meth-amphetamine?

Are you sure he's a Republican?

Anonymous said...

It's not God and his wife that he has to worry about - it's the voters. They elected him and they'll have a say about his transgression.

Frankly, he is the one who did this and since he lives a public life as a Senator he will pay whatever price politics hands out.

Jaesoreal said...

Gay marriage has ravaged another life. You make a lot of sense. I'm starting to think maybe gay marriage breached the levies down in New Orleans!

If you were comfortable with your own sexuality, maybe you would not need to attack everyone else for being themselves.

Jon, I think I speak for us all when I say we are comfortable with your sexuality.

Dear Mr. Day,

Everyone knows that it's the gays responsible for no good cannolis and the illegals responsible for no more crullers at Dunkin's!

Thanks for the good laugh.

Great satire... I hope!

They've long been warning about the threats posed to marriage by gay people wedding one another. Well, we can't say we weren't warned.

And the Threat Level today is HOT PINK: hypocrisy imminent.

(Thanks for this bit of lovely.)

Alec said...

If only Vitter had the vision to support state and federal constitutional amendments banning gay marriage years earlier, New Orleans would have been spared the brutality of Hurricane Katrina.

pacemark said...

I am unsure why everyone is going crazy over this issue.

If it is about paying for sex, that's crazy. What no one has said about the whole thing is that we all pay for sex.

For example;
If you are married, dating or just lusting; sex cost money. Think of all of the money that men spend to make their wife or girlfriend happy. If the woman is not happy; sorry, but you will not be having sex!


I guess we all pay for sex one way or another.

As for as prostitution:

Everyone who is working to pay their bills is into prostitution. If another company calls you and offer you $100/hr more then what you are make now would you leave your job for the new one?


Go head tell me I'm not right.

new day said...

pacemark...Most of us couldn't care less about other people's sex lives; it is the hypocrisy that chafes. If he wagged his finger at others who buy their wives flowers, while he himself is on his way to the florist, I would have a problem with that as well. All the more so if he was attempting to pass legislation against it.

It's not that what you are saying is not true, just that it is irrelevant to the situation.

In Christ said...

I can't take the put-downs of upstanding Christians like David Vitter, Ted Haggard, Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Bakker (and the list goes on) any longer. Can't you see what's REALLY going on?

Christianity has been threatened for years by the self-esteem movement. It's had to do Godly battle with the idea that humans can be good, worthwhile--even lovable as they truly are. It's been so hard these past years for Christian missionaries to convince people that "there isn't a worthwhile human being on Earth--no, not one" and that we're filthy, disgusting and loathsome in the sight of God.

Used to be a piece of cake. Until our sick secular culture urged us to love and celebrate ourselves the way we truly were.

So Christians approached the best of the best among them, and urged them to show what disgusting perverts they were, even if they weren't.

David Vitter put his marriage on the line to answer the call, even though he had absolutely no personal desire to have sex with an escort (or anyone else but his wife). It was the same with Ted Haggard--come on, he's so masculine-appearing and unaffected in manner, could anyone possibly believe he might be gay? (And I think someone's description of him as "Paul Lynde with a soupcon more testosterone" was just plain malicious.)

These men are all martyrs to the cause of Christianity. They're showing the world how vile and disgusting humanity truly is. They deserve medals, not scorn. But all they're getting is the Cross--which, of course, is exactly as it should be.

I urge you to read between the lines when "judging" these men. They have as little interest in sex as the Pope. But they MUST convince us that we're all scum. I applaud the magnificent job they're doing.

resubro said...

We all know it wasn't gay marriage that made Vitter hire hookers. It was Bill Clinton. Clinton ruined it for us all. No more explanation needed.

Jon Swift is Gay himself. Who else would attempt such a position if it were not for his own self hatred and denial. "The Lady [swift]doth protest too much, methinks"

Really though, I think he writes this stuff to get people charged up for what reasons related to profit- his!

Chuckle after reading his stuff. Does anyone really believe this junk.

It does make for good reading in the morning after a good cup of hot coffee - you know what follows.

Had Enough said...

You, of course, are another mindless hypochristian talibangelist and Dirty Dave Vittiot is a punk. His pathetic "news" conference, where he paraded an obviously shell-shocked and inappropriately dressed female cuckold of a gold digger wife, was comical in its assertions that the media was to blame or that Vittiot's "enemies" were behind the New Orleans madam's statements of his patronage there.
Truth is Vittiot shouldn't even have been elected. Had lazy Louisianians tuned into LPB and witnessed the debate between Vittiot and Kennedy they'd have seen what a moron this mouth breather really is (particularly in comparison with the articulate Kennedy). But it seems to be a trend...pretend you, and not the rigged voting machines of Ohio and Florida, actually elected someone from your party of hate, that shameless "ethics party" that manipulates truth and cynically claims god as its sponsor while in fact greed is its god deception its agenda and perversion its underbelly.
Anyone who believes the lie that this mindless, spineless and balless Vittiot told his obviously, freshly shocked spouse "years ago" about his sordid sexual preferences likely still believes the head imbecile when he said, just yesterday, that "these (Al-Quida) are the same people who attacked us on 9/11."
Vittiot needs to go....now. He has not had one original thought in his political carreer and indeed, when he speaks, one can almost see Karl Rove's elbow protruding from his rectum.
His bug-eyed wife needs to follow through on her Bobbitt threat (so humourous she thought at the time of Lewinski)....I'll lend her the nail clippers (the small one not the toenail clippers). Then the unclothed emperor would likely vanish.

@had enough:

While "Vittiot" is nice, it's a little too pedestrian for the cynical, "edgy" times in which we live. Try using what people down here in LA are calling him: Vitty Cent

This is pathetic. Can't even take responsibility for your own actions, so of COURSE its the gays' fault. You Repukes make me nauseous.

I actually read that, due to his desire for prostitutes to make him wear a diaper (I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP), he was known in the hooker circles as "Vitter the Shitter."

Going for counseling would be best if both you and your loved one go together. Do try to make a clear stand that the counseling is to help both of you together to find a solution to your relationship.marriage counseling san diego Try not to make it sound as if your partner needs the counseling because you relationship problem was due to your partner. Do try your best to make it sound neutral. If nothing else works, try putting aside your pride for the sake of your relationship and claim that you are the one wanting counseling.
