Pro-Adultery Internet Site Puts Up Billboard Endorsing Newt Gingrich

AshleyMadison.com is apparently a dating website…for married people. That’s right, they’re pro adultery, which I want to say is kind of disgusting. I’m don’t care much what people do with their private sexual lives, but it seems to me that promoting betrayal is a pretty despicable thing to do.

Anyway, now they’re endorsing Newt Gingrich, which is actually kind of funny.

This may be one endorsement Newt Gingrich wishes he didn’t receive.

Ashley Madison, a “pro-adultery” website whose slogan is “Life is short. Have an affair,” put up a billboard in Bucks County, PA, that “endorses” Newt Gingrich for president. Gingrich has famously admitted to extramarital affairs in the past.

The billboard boasts a large picture of Gingrich, with the text, “Faithful Republican, Unfaithful Husband. Welcome to the AshleyMadison.com Era.”

From the official statement put out by the company:

Now that Newt is the leading contender in the race for the GOP nomination, we felt compelled to make a point to illustrate how times have changed when a serial divorcee/adulterer is capturing the hearts of the American people.

Gingrich proves that marital fidelity has no bearing on someone’s ability to do a job. Rather than judge him, Americans have finally embraced the reality that affairs are commonplace, and perhaps paradoxically, might be an indication of great leadership to come. He is not the first nor last politician who will step outside of their marriage.

I actually think that being an adulterer does reflect on someone’s ability to do their job. Electing a political leader is all about trust. They campaign on a certain platform of ideas and promises, and we elect them trusting that they mean what they say. If a politician cannot keep the most intimate of promises to his/her spouse, why would we believe they could could keep their promises to the electorate?

Mind you, this isn’t an “upholding traditional marriage” thing for me. It’s an honor thing. If you’ve cheated on your spouse, that’s not honorable.

        • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

          Let’s remember, Newt famously dumped wife #1 for wife #2 while wife #1 was in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery. As in literally went to the hospital to present her with divorce papers while she was recovering from surgery for uterine cancer.

          He eventually dumped wife #2 for wife #3 shortly after wife #2 was
          diagnosed with MS back in 1999. And he was having the affair on wife #2 with wife #3 while he was turning the country upside down trying to drive Bill Clinton from office over his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

            You should cut and paste from more reliable sources, Tranni.

            As in literally went to the hospital to present her with divorce papers

            We’ll just put “literally” down as yet another English word you are totally ignorant of the meaning.

            Gingrich’s first wife, Jackie Battley, has said previously that the couple discussed their divorce while she was in the hospital in 1980 — other aspects of it appear to have been distorted through constant retelling. Most significant, Battley wasn’t dying at the time of the hospital visit; she is alive today. Nor was the divorce discussion
            in the hospital “a surprise” to Battley, as many accounts have contended. Battley, not Gingrich, had requested a divorce months earlier, according to Jackie Gingrich Cushman, the couple’s second daughter. Further, Gingrich did not serve his wife with divorce papers on the day of his visit

          Hanni just learned to parrot rbb’s “serial adulterer” line, even after rbb’s hypocrisy in never calling Bill Clinton a “serial adulterer” was pointed out. Want to make book that Hanni’s faux outrage doesn’t extend to Billy Bob Clinton as well?

          “The level of hypocrisy is stunning, even for liberals. The next time a liberal sheds crocodile tears over Newt’s wife being cheated on while she was hospitalized for cancer, just ask of they are talking about Newt or John Edwards? See if their faux outrage was the same for each.”

    Rob,

    I still don’t understand how an atheist has any foundation to determine right or wrong.  What is it based on?  Is it arbitrary for each and every atheist?

    • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

      Hal, I still don’t understand why you think religion is the only path to morality and enlightenment.

      Isn’t religious worship really just another way to search for and find certain universal truths?  What makes you think I haven’t made a similar search in my own life, albeit free of certain superstitions about heaven and hell?

      • Hal993

        So, when your kid wants to do something that, through your enlightenment, you have determined to be wrong, what basis do you have to tell him/her that it is wrong?  Do you claim that your enlightenment is superior to his/hers?

        Does your enlightenment turn water into wine, raise the dead, make the blind see and the lame walk?

        • Jimmypop

          “Does your enlightenment turn water into wine, raise the dead, make the blind see and the lame walk?”

        • Neiman

          I want to offer you some information about Hannitized, he is a known liar. He pretends to be a Christian but refuses to confess faith in Jesus Christ as his only Savior and only Lord. He makes all sorts of excuses and when I showed him that people have died rather than deny Christ and that refusing to confess Him, Jesus would not confess Hannitized before the Father, in other words he was self condemned, he still refused to confess Jesus. He approves of homosexuality, thinks they are born that way, created gay by God, it is normal and not a sin. He is an accessory to the mass slaughter of over 50 million innocent babies in the womb. He is at best a reprobate, while I think he is demon possessed.

          Above he pasted some quotes of mine, totally out of context,failed to include my follow-up explanations and then used them to lie about what I believe. It is his anti-Christ spirit in operation.

          1. I did make those statements.
          2. They were quickly and in artfully made, much to my regret.
          3. In later communications I explained that I only meant I did not care about those things, only in the sense that they were a distraction from the point I was making, which was the story was a waste of time.
          4. I carefully explained I did not agree with fornication or adultery or any any sexual conduct outside the sacrament of marriage. He refuses to copy and paste those statements.
          5. Like his sister Gay Bob, they copy and paste things out of all context, lie about what the author meant, all to further their pro-gay, anti-Christ agenda.

    • Jamermorrow

      It is called REASON or just knowing what creates order. Try reading any book ever written about Philosophy. Are things moral because the Bible tells us they are moral? or was the Bible explaining what people knew to be moral? 

      • Hal993

        REASON hasn’t created order.  People have different definitions of REASON.

    • Neiman

      There is no morality absent an objective, unchangeable standard, enforced at some point by someone greater that the people acting immorally. What Rob, anarchist Jamermorrow, Gay Bob, Ellyanus, Hannah and others like them subscribe to, are situational ethics and relative morality, standards that shift easily and often with the political winds, thus denying any standard of absolute right and wrong, good versus evil.

      You are also right that these people, all of them, being outside of Christ dare to suggest what should be or should not be Christian values and doctrines. They are all by their actions, enemies of God and His Christ, with most professing not to believe in Him or being practical atheists; and yet, in their vanity they feel qualified to judge Christians and the Bible and demand God submit to their secular values.

      Adultery is more than a breach of trust, it is a violation of a most sacred, lifetime spiritual covenant between a man and a woman, only a man and woman, before Almighty God, thus not just proving themselves untrustworthy when they fail, but not the people they claimed to be at marriage, being Christians. No covenant outside of the Church has any such importance, it only violates what was a phony, lying legal contract to begin with, it is not marriage, which is only in and before God. So, while it is still a violation of trust, being outside of Christ they have no sacred contract to fulfill and Christians should not vote for them anyway.

      Any search for Truth has never been fulfilled outside of Christ. Too many atheists, men of great intellect, some of the greatest scientific minds of all time discovered that any search for such secular truth is fruitless and the occupation of fools.

        Old Pal, was there any morality before 12/25/0000?

      • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

        Speaking of situational ethics, nobody does that better than Rbb’s old pal, Neiman.

        “I only objected to the importance of this crap story, this cheap bimbo (I don’t know if she is a whore, a professional or a slut) has a right to sell herself and this Marine has a right to get him some, but is it an important enough story to waste time on?” – Neiman

        “How many times must I say I don’t care if this Marine gets him some from this publicity craving slut, it is none of my business – I just don’t think it is a very important story.” – Neiman

        “I guess you are too stupid to acknowledge I have said I do not care what these two do, I only questioned the importance of the story.

        I never said I absolutely knew their intentions, but after many decades of life it isn’t very hard to see what is going on here, even though I don’t really care! When a man is totally naked, with an erection, with a knife in his hand, chasing a woman down a dark alley, I assume he is not collecting for the Red Cross. Dirty Harry ” – Neiman 

        http://sayanythingblog.com/entry/mila-kunis-says-shell-go-to-marine-ball-with-afghanistan-deployed-troop/

        For the record, think all sin is wrong, all the time, and I care about sin every time someone does it. I just don’t beat people over the head with their sinning, like Nieman does. God taught me love, not hate.

        Neiman thinks people have a right to sin and doesn’t care about it, at least heterosexual sin. He just hates gays who sin and the like. He hates just about everyone that isn’t a conservative.

      • Hal993

        I agree 100%.

        Saint Neiman determines what is moral. God was informed by Neiman many years ago.

        • Neiman

          Why are you juvenile? Why are you so insecure? Try reading the Bible, I didn’t write it and tell God:

          Do not commit adultery. (Exodus20:14)

          When I came to you to do justice I shall demand the immediate
          punishment of the sorcerers and the adulterers, of those who swear false
          oaths, who oppress the wage-earner, the widow and the orphan, who do
          not respect the rights of the foreigner. They do all this and have no
          fear of me, says Yahweh. (Malachi3:5)

          How senseless is the adulterer! Whoever commits adultery destroys himself. (Proverbs6:32)

          You have heard that it was said: Do not commit adultery. But I tell
          you this: anyone who looks at a woman to satisfy his lust has in fact
          already committed adultery with her in his heart. (Matthew5:27-28)

          Indeed, it is from the heart that evil desires come – murder, adultery, immorality, theft, lies, slander. (Matthew15:19)

          and he told them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another
          commits adultery against his wife, and the woman who divorces her
          husband and marries another also commits adultery.” (Mark10:11-12)

          Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery;
          and whoever marries a woman divorced by her husband also commits
          adultery. (Luke16:18)

          You know the commandments: Do not commit adultery, do not kill, do
          not steal, do not accuse falsely, honor your father and your mother.
          (Luke18:20)

          Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the Kingdom of God?
          Make no mistake about it: those who lead immoral lives, or worship
          idols, or who are adulterers, homosexuals of any kind, or thieves,
          exploiters, drunkards, gossips or embezzlers will not inherit the
          kingdom of heaven. (1Corinthians6:9-10)

          Food is for the stomach, as the stomach is for food, and God will
          destroy them both. Yet the body is not for sex, but for the Lord; and
          the Lord is for the body. And God who raised the Lord, will also raise
          us with his power. Do you not know that your bodies are members of
          Christ? And you would make that part of his body become a part of a
          prostitute? Never! (1Corinthians6:13-15)

          Avoid unlawful sex entirely. Any other sin a person commits is
          outside the body but those who commit sexual immorality sin against
          their own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy
          Spirit within you, given by God? You belong no longer to yourselves.
          (1Corinthians6:18-19)

          Let us not fall into sexual immorality as some of them did, and in
          one day twenty-three thousand of them fell dead. (1Corinthians10:8)

          Oh, I wasn’t born back then blasphemer!

  • SigFan

    A sign of the times to be sure.  That a significant portion of the country finds nothing morally repugnant in adultery anymore is simply an indication of how far we’ve slipped our moral moorings.  I do not believe that people that have made this mistake should be condemned and shunned for life – for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God – and that includes myself.  Mistakes are made, people do things they later regret if they have any conscience at all, but they can repent of those mistakes and go on to do good things with the balance of their lives.  Whether you believe that Gingrich is such a person is immaterial though.  What is sad is that we find anything funny, or reason to celebrate, or reason to accept that the betrayal of a trusted bond between husband and wife is okay.  That to me is just a very sad statement on the condition of our society and the degree to which it has decayed.

    4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.” –Saul Alinsky

    Just another example of how the party espoused to values can be attacked by the party who’s values change like the shifting sands in a desert.  You have a former president that was impeached for an extra-marital affair, another democrat presidential candidate who was indicted for various election fund fraud related charges stemming from his illicit affair, and it’s all water under the bridge.  Hell, Slick Willy just came out with a new book and seems his post-presidential life has been virtually unaffected by his dogging around.  But Heaven help you if you’re a Republican and have an affair or a substance abuse problem.  See statement above, the left will continually drag up Newt’s past until he leaves…  including make more allegations (true or not) to muddy the water and stir more discontent.  Just as they did with Cain.  Whatever happened with all the allegations against Cain?  Now it’s “Who Cares” since the left got what they want…  capitulation.  The above mentioned rule is just a stick used to bully the opposition in pursuit of an agenda.  Nothing more, nothing less.  Because as we’ve previously mentioned the party of Moral Relativism is teflon when it comes to such charges… the advantages of being morally bankrupt I suppose.

      “Current Communist Goals” (excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen)

      26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

  • Davoarid

    Lots of married couples are non-monogamous. There’s no betrayal involved in those instances–they just agree that they’re allowed to have sex with other people.

    If more spouses agreed to this, we’d have a lower divorce rate, and fewer broken homes.

    • Neiman

      You are right, “Lots of married couples are non-monogamous.” being no better than the lower order of animals, and often far beneath them. They are rutting, immoral pigs, like the Prodigal Son, wallowing in the filth of the sexual pig stye, starving themselves to death spiritually.

      It is hardly worth bragging about that with such immoral animals. “There’s no betrayal involved in those instances–they just agree that they’re allowed to have sex with other people.” They are ALL people without honor, without love without decency, degrading themselves and destroying their children.

      You are many decades late moosebreath, “If more spouses agreed to this, we’d have a lower divorce rate, and fewer broken homes.” This started with the demon led sexual revolution of the Sixties, which quickly followed the liberals kicking God out of the Public Square and they began engaging in national moral dissolution, utter depravity. Since then marriage rates have dropped precipitously, divorce rates have soared and there are millions and millions of broken homes anyway, the establishment of most damnable alternative families, the destruction of our society and our economic fall into the pit.

      Good job!

      • Davoarid

        Neiman: The sexual revolution does not in any remote way suggest that non-monogamy should be grounds for divorce.

        That’s religious fundamentalism’s claim.

        • Neiman

          So what? It destroyed the family and is destroying America.

        • Hal993

          Tell that to your wife, when you find one.  Great values promoted by another self enlightened atheist. 

      • Davoarid

        If a husband agrees to allow his wife to sleep with other people–in exchange for requiring her to keep the family together for her children’s sake–why is this a bad thing? Where’s the harm?

        Because I can point to the very specific harm in saying “non-monogamous sex in a marriage is grounds for divorce”.

        • Neiman

          I am not promoting divorce, but under God it is only allowed for unfaithfulness. Forgiven, thank God when we fail, upon repentance, but it is biblical grounds for divorce.

          There have been innumerable marriages kept together for the sake of the children, to be raised to accept dishonesty in relationships, sex without love and nothing resembling a healthy spiritual/emotional environment. There is great harm to the children and society when such dishonesty and moral license is upheld as acceptable conduct. Those children, like those around us today, having been raised in morally dissolute homes only continue the downward slope of depravity and no one will convince me that a healthy, strong nation can result when Judeo-Christian morality and decency have been abandoned.

          • Davoarid

            So let’s say a guy no longer enjoys sex with his wife. They’ve been married for a decade and have 3 kids. His wife understands, and says it’s okay if he has sex with other people. His options are:

            1) Go the rest of his life without having sex
            2) Have sex with other people.
            3) Get divorced.

            Only a masochist would choose something other than #2.

            Given the three choices as being the various ways your mind works, it’s obvious you equate human sexual behavior to that of an animal (ie. instinctual) rather than possessing any higher form of rational thinking.  Neiman, you’re wasting your time with this cretin.  Apparently incapable of sublimating baser desires in the face of an overactive Id.  Another casualty of the instant gratification society.  Another lost cause, atavist.  Case in point for the “evolved” leftoid that is in fact a cro-magnon lurking beneath a feigned intellectual exterior…

            How many wives did Abraham have?
            And I heard he had some concubines on top of that.
            The ancient fathers of the Old Testament were on to something: Lots of pussy. The more the mellower a man is.

            The guy below pretends to be a Christian and talks like a degenerate. It is not the atheist one must fear, it is the lying, false Christians. The Lord hated all such men.

            Only if the most important thing in your pitiful life was sex.

            She is still approving of adultery, not just a sin, but a violation of a sacred covenant.

            As others mentioned, that is your emotional response because you are mastered by your physical lusts and have no relationship with God at all. So, that is probably your best answer and absent Christ as your Savior, you are only increasing your everlasting torments, a high price to pay for your vanity.

          Oh, now you are going to use the “it’s for the children” excuse.  Bizarre.

          It seems to me that is adultery. Such an arrangement most definitely is not of God.

    • Hal993

      Sounds like a solidly Democrat principle.

    Well, I am a born again Christian who has been married to the same woman for just over 20 years. (Both our first marriage).  I couldn’t be happier and would never dream of stepping out on her. I truly believe that our marriage is a covenant and the vows we made to each other on our wedding day are indeed sacred.
