A Promise I’ll Keep—I’ll Never Cheat On My Wife
Senator Ensign is a member of the so-called Promise Keepers.
Here is promise # 3 of the Promise Keepers—
A Promise Keeper is committed to practicing spiritual, moral, ethical, and sexual purity.
Here is promise #4—
A Promise Keeper is committed to building strong marriages and families through love, protection and biblical values.
I’ve not reflectively dismissive of people who join this group. Life is hard and people need help getting by and doing what they feel is right. I really have no problem with the first six of the seven promises that are listed. If someone is serious about staying loyal to his spouse, more power to him.
Promise number 7 though is about trying to convert people. I have some problem with that in some contexts.
That said, what were the odds that Republican Senator John Ensign of Nevada was keeping up with any standard of morality from either the right or the left? If the Promise Keepers had been smart they would have long ago kicked him out as a preventive move.
Just look at the picture up above. Senator Ensign is like a successful Willy Loman. Somebody who merits none of the sympathy you would offer a guy simply trying to get by in life.

I’ll tell you, the blog reading public, one promise I’m certain to keep—This liberal will never cheat on his wife. My wife is the best person ever.
It’s wrong to cheat on your spouse. It is likely that your spouse cares about you and will be hurt by your actions. Be loyal to the people who are loyal to you.
(Update 6/25–I don’t believe that Republican South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford is a member of the Promise Keepers. I do however know that Governor Sanford also cheats on his wife.)
