Goodbye, Dinesh
Another anti-Gay hypocrite falls from his moralistic perch

by D'Anne Witkowski - Special to the SGN

Are you sitting down? Because this may come as quite a shock: Another anti-Gay stalwart and 'defender' of marriage has been caught in a marital mishap.

Now, I'm not a marriage counselor, but I feel pretty confident dolling out this advice: if you've been married for 20 years, and are, in fact, still married, you should probably not go to a right-wing Christian conference with a woman who is not your wife - let alone share a hotel room with her and introduce her to your right-wing bros as your 'fiancé.' That's just, well, tacky. At best. At worst it's totally hypocritical bullshit, though that is, as we've seen time and time again, par for the course.

Alas, this warning comes too late for Dinesh D'Souza, right-wing author and media darling, and his mistress, Denise Odie Joseph II, with whom he not only shares a philandering bed but also shares odious views about marriage equality. A match made in Heaven, obviously. Well, at least a Heaven that has nothing to do with the 'thou shalt not commit adultery' thing.

SHADES OF NEWT GINGRICH
This sexy scandal came to light right after D'Souza accused President Obama of aggressively 'attacking the traditional values agenda.'

'Why is Obama on the social issues - and I'm thinking here of abortion, I'm thinking here of gay marriage - why is Obama so aggressive in attacking the traditional values agenda?' D'Souza asked. 'I think this is the problem: Obama doesn't like traditional Christianity because he identifies it with colonialism. Obama's own Christianity is more of a Third World liberation theology, a very different kind of Jeremiah Wright-type philosophy, summarized in the idea that America is the rogue nation in the world.'

Got it? Obama hates traditional marriage because he hates Christianity and he hates Christianity because he hates white people. The end. Amen.

DRAGGING GOD INTO IT
D'Souza, who cheated on his wife in a flagrant way at a conference about living according to Biblical principles (or whatever), also lamented the alleged state of this country's morals and spirituality.

'I think that the deepest problems facing America and the West in the end are not political, they are spiritual,' he said. 'This is why it makes sense even as we debate policy issues, even as we debate moral issues, to turn to the maker of the universe, this maker of the universe that isn't just an absentee God like Obama's dad, a kind of absentee father who got things going and then took off, but a God who cares about each one of us and certainly about our country.'

Aw, snap! No, he didn't! No, he didn't just call Obama's father a God-like deadbeat. Oh, but he did. Because he, Mr. D'Philanderer, is so much better, so much more moral than some guy who contributed chromosomes to create the President of the United States.
