Oh she forgave herself, so all is good.

“Happy military wife with kids and church and happy, happy, happy. False. My life crumbled. My marriage crumbled. I lost my faith in God.”

She lost her faith in God. That means she became an atheist. That explains the adultery.

In a somewhat related story:

Gay Alabama Lawmaker Threatens To Expose Colleagues' Marital Infidelities



WASHINGTON -- Alabama's only openly gay legislator is putting her anti-gay colleagues on notice: If they keep espousing family values rhetoric as a reason to oppose marriage equality, she'll start making their marital infidelities public.

"I will not stand by and allow legislators to talk about 'family values' when they have affairs, and I know of many who are and have," wrote state Rep. Patricia Todd (D) on Facebook over the weekend, as reported by the TimesDaily in Alabama. "I will call our elected officials who want to hide in the closet out."

Todd's post came after a federal judge ruled Friday that Alabama's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional. She told The Huffington Post that she decided to issue her threat after reading some of the anti-gay rhetoric coming from certain elected officials in the state.

"If certain people come out and start espousing this rhetoric about family values, then I will say, 'Let's talk about family values, because here's what I heard.' I don't have direct knowledge, because obviously I'm not the other person involved in the affair. But one thing you would never hear about me is that I ever cheated on a partner or had an affair," said Todd.

"One thing I'm pretty consistent on is I do not like hypocrites," she added. "If you can explain your position and you hold yourself to the same standard you want to hold me to, then fine. But you cannot go out there and smear my community by condemning us and somehow making us feel less than, and expect me to be quiet."

On Sunday night, U.S. District Court Judge Callie Granade issued a two-week stay on her ruling, meaning that same-sex couples will have to wait a bit longer to wed. Her order gives the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals until Feb. 9 to decide whether to continue the delay. Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange (R) said he would have preferred a stay until the spring or summer, when the Supreme Court is set to rule on the constitutionality of marriage equality nationwide.

If Granade's ruling is upheld, Alabama will be the 37th state to legalize marriage equality.

“I will continue to fight for the unborn and the Constitution, just like I always have, and I will continue to share my imperfect journey as a Christian, just like I always have,” Fisher said. “I don’t condone my own actions or excuse them, but I have forgiven myself for them and I will be moving forward.”


Right-wingers in the States are almost completely alien to those over here. Almost a different breed. You have housewives carrying a Bible and a gun together in a non ironic way. We have Boris Johnson wearing Union Jack socks. I suppose they feel the same about our Conservatives.
When did Liberal become a dirty word?
But never mind that!
I remember when it was first put on the Internet and she was compared with that Islam terrorist woman, the White Widow, same pose, same gender, same idea. I remember thinking, that girl is ripe for a bit on the side, because there is no way she is happy being the little wifey to her brave soldier husband.
But (again I never noted it down so I've no evidence) I expected it to be with another woman.

That's a gutsy lady. Serves 'em right.


Zilch. Yes. As for the marriage equality in Alabama, do they have it or not? It keeps being passed and then overridden then passed. Last thing I heard there was a stay on equality. Surely if they've got room for adulterous hettie women with guns and Scriptures they've got room for happily married dykes.

Holly Fisher is from a different state, apparently. Where they've already got marriage equality.

So one would think. But only if one were a reasonable human being.
