John Nichols reveals the moral corruption at the heart of the Republican Party.
Update: And what is it about perverted old men in the congress who molest little boys, empowered in their authority by their fellow members who turn a blind eye in their own hypocrisy, and their addiction to alcohol?
You never hear about people who use cannabis molesting children, do you? That’s because even though perfectly nice and decent people drink alcohol, monsters can get drunk and forget their sorrows, or at least pretend. Cannabis is the opposite because, despite the reputed effect on short-term memory, it actually enhances recall of past events, and it makes you unable to look away from what you have done.
That’s why moralistic politicians and false preachers hate cannabis, it hates them. They hate God and they hate everything that reminds them that they are not what they pretend to be. These are not good Christians, though they wear their sanctity like a smirk.
Do you fear judgment? Then do not do what you have done and stop, talk to your inner self and find a way to confess. God will forgive you but you have to forgive yourself first and that isn’t going to happen with alcohol. God will forgive you once you’ve faced yourself and those you owe guilt towards, and resolved those as far as you are able to. Come clean, at once, or later you will be sorry.
Update 2: Now out come the justifications for child molestation by the right-wing conservatives. Yes, they will even go that far to defend themselves, when caught out as hypocrites of the first order. They have much to conceal.

Update 3: It occurs to me that the Republican Party is often known by the initials, GOP (or NAMBLA, as Jon Stewart would say).
Update 4: Of course, Jon ran with a joke on this line but did it a lot better than me. Not that I was planning on becoming a humorist, for the most part. And we know that GOP now really stands for Grand Old Pedophiles (h/t Mayan).
