On Friday a producer and former CBS reporter named Itay Hod put up a Facebook post intended to out Illinois Rep. Aaron Schock. The tabloid media, for years, has played a game with the young Republicanówink-wink stories about his photoshoot for a men's health magazine, the sexy celebrities he follows on Twitter, stuff like that.

If that republican says its his own personal business and has nothing to do with anything, I shrug my shoulders and move on.

He is what he is-—and I’m not sure you can tell by looking at a photograph.

A Schock to ... no one.

Did the Joun-o-list at Slate mean to write "SCHLOCK" or "SHOCK"?

HOMOSEXUAL, because there’s nothing GAY about it.

As long as he continues voting as a conservative and keeps his personal life to himself, I could care less.

The lapdog media tries to expose this young republican, while they continue to ignore the homosexual who is sitting on Reggie's lap in the oral office.

It’s interesting that liberals, who say there is nothing wrong with being gay, often accuse others of being gay in order to slander and destroy them.

It’s like adultery. They not only practice it frequently but consider it virtuous . . . until a member of the Evil Party engages in it.

At this point I don’t care if they’re axe murderers. The ‘Rats never take out the trash in their house.

Schock’s problem is that he’s a RINO and a fan of Peter King.

I'm not sure that's the issue here.

From what I can tell, if you're gay you're expected to march in lockstep (er, goosestep) with the gay agenda. If you're gay, but don't support things like gay marriage, you are considered at traitor who has escaped the plantation and must be punished (vous encourages les autres).

In fact gays, and Liberals for that matter, just don't comprehend how one can both be gay AND not support agenda items like gay marriage. And that which cannot be comprehended to Liberals must be destroyed.

If he is asking for my franchise then it is my business.
If he is a drunk, druggie, homosexual,women abuser, etc. and wants to run for political office then it is the business of the voters.

1) If someone says "I'm gay. I was born that way. It's what I am." -- I say, "I don't care how you feel -- are you engaging in inappropriate acts?"
2) If someone says, "I engage in inappropriate acts." -- I say, "Would you repent, change your ways and seek the Lord?"
3) If someone says, "I engage in inappropriate acts and make no apology for it." -- I say, "Looks like you will not find favor in God's eyes, but that is not for me to say; it's really not my business."
4) If someone says, "I'm a politician and I'm also gay, and --" I'd just stop right there and say, "Skip the unimportant stuff: let's see your voting record. Nothing else matters."

I entirely agree.

Openly gay Republican Rich Tisei ran as Charlie Baker’s running mate in 2010, in Mass. gubernatorial election. Voters yawned and re-elected Gov Deval Patrick (aka Barack’s Mini- Me). In 2012, Tisei ran against Dem John Tierney (wife’s family in corruption scandal) in MA-6th district. Voters yawned and re-elected Tierney.

“If someone says, “I’m a politician and I’m also gay, and —” I’d just stop right there and say, “Skip the unimportant stuff: let’s see your voting record. Nothing else matters.”

I’m sorry, but I have to disagree. Same-sex attraction disorder is just that: a disorder. A mental disorder, a psychosexual disorder, and a spiritual disorder.

Disorders cannot be compartmentalized. They slosh over into every other area. Neither the thinking nor the resolve of a person who suffers from SSAD can be trusted.

I’d tell them I’m not “gay,” I’m happy happy happy.

It often pays homage to Obama, so yes, it is homosexually oriented.

He’s probably the biggest RINO for R+10 district.

Probably one of the worst amnesty supporters outside of leadership calling illegals “undocumented citizens” and implying Boehner should break the Hastert Rule.

It is ironic the liberals are trying to take out Boehner, Ryan, Cantor and Schock.
