The Iowa Republican: The trouble with the truth

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

When Chet Culver ran for Governor in 2006, he told Iowans that he was
a man of "deep religious faith." He ran television ads showing his two
children on his lap reading the Bible, and he also ran a series of ads
on a number of Christian radio stations across the state. Culver's
faith seemed authentic. He was the only candidate in the Democratic
primary to openly oppose gay marriage, a position that he continued to
advance after winning the primary and being elected to office. ...
Culver's strong position on marriage lasted until the day the Iowa
Supreme Court issued its decision that allowed gay marriage in Iowa.
Where did that man of deep religious faith go to? Now that months have
passed since the Courts ruling, Governor Culver is once again publicly
talking about his faith.
