Schwarzenegger acknowledges having child with staffer - CNN.com

So Arnold manages to keep this child under wraps and out of the press for nearly two full terms as the governor of California? And on top of that, keep the mother of this child gainfully employed and in his wife's face on a daily basis throughout this entire time as well? Woooooowwwwwww!!! That's true player sh*t right there! John Edwards could have learned a lot about game from old Arnold.

It doesn't speak well of Arnold's reign that I consider this more celebrity gossip than political material.

Feel sorry for that woman's husband, who presumably thought the child was his.

Indeed. And here's the kicker. Per the news story they are no longer married. So it's quite possible that he's hemmed up with child support payments. And he might find it exceedingly difficult to get out of them despite this development. A lot of states have laws that only give you so long to challenge paternity.

From your own linked article:

Schwarzenegger fathered the child with a household staffer, the Times article said. He has provided support for the child since birth, the source told CNN.

OAW's saying that the woman's ex-husband (not the Governator) might have already been on the hook for child support payments, too, even though it's not his kid.

Yeah I read the entire article. And Arnold's financial support is beside the point with regard to what I was saying. Assuming Maria Shriver was in the dark about all of this ... it certainly isn't a leap to assume that the staffer's former husband was also in the dark. Even recently this staffer was still saying publicly that the child was from her former husband. IOW, Arnold was more than likely paying her in the form of hush money in order to keep this quiet for a decade. Such payments wouldn't likely come up in divorce proceedings.

In any event, that comment was obviously speculative. My only point was that it would really suck for the guy if he's stuck paying child support for a kid that's not his. It's not like it hasn't happened before ....

No "outrage". More like "amazement" that he was actually able to pull it off for so long. It'll be interesting to see what prompted Arnold to come clean now. Especially in light of the fact that his former staffer was still covering for him when the LA Times first broke the story. Even after she was asked about it again after he admitted the truth publicly her answer was "No comment." So it doesn't appear that she was the one looking to blackmail him.

I think there was something mentioned about not placing it in a rectum. Kinda hard to make babies that way.

Leviticus 18 covers a number of prohibitions (unless you mean another original bible)

Anyway, I did mean to take this too off topic, so back to the Ex Governator and his dalliances.

Haha, George Takei has some great tweets. I'm not too sure he's the one actually writing them because they seem a little too culturally aware for a guy his age and personality type, but they're often quite clever.

I gotta add, I really hate when people expect ideas and cultural values from decades and decades ago (in this case centuries and centuries ago) to hold up in today's day and age. Obviously some do, but this is far from a given. I'd argue that a more logical default would be to assume that the way things were yesteryear was *not* the best way, because we evolve and change and stuff.

Ok lets dissect this a bit

Leviticus 18:22 (New American Standard Bible)

22'(A)You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination

Ok this means that if you lay with a woman dont lay with men the same way. But what if you dont lay with woman just men, then your in the clear.

Or

Leviticus 18:22 (The Message)

22 "Don't have sex with a man as one does with a woman. That is abhorrent.

Since men don't have vagina's thats not a problem. If you only have vaginal sex with a woman and no anal sex, then any anal sex with a man is ok.

or

Leviticus 18:22 (King James Version)

22Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Again its pretty clear, if you don't lie with womankind at all then your in the clear to lay with mankind

And Last

Leviticus 18:22 (GOD’S WORD Translation)

22Never have sexual intercourse with a man as with a woman. It is disgusting.

So I can still suck off men with this last one and be ok. I mean seriously 20 different versions of the same passage.... And only a few actually say homosexuality is wrong, while the rest are grey areas open to interpretation

To be fair, it says "You shall not lie with a male as *one* lies with a female". It doesn't say "You shall not lie with a male as *you* lay with a female"

You're trying to split hairs here. It seems pretty clear to me, based only on the Bible, if the Christian god is real and it's opinions are accurately reflected in the Bible, then that god is probably not in favor of homosexuality.

What's more, this is way off topic from Arnie

Not correct again, let me split some more hair, because if man are bared from this activity woman are not so homosexuality is not frowned upon, god is just sexist towards males. God must be a female.

Now thats offensive, I have not gone at any lengths to offend any ones faith. And for the record the homosexual nature of the topic was started by Chongo. Bitch at Chongo, besson3c, screener, Atheist, wiskedjak and even yourself for creating a subtopic in here. I just posted a joke that was on topic, they all made it into a different topic.

Well, MENSA, Arnold and his wife just recently announced their separation, without a very clear signal as to why, after all these years, they were doing it. This likely caused journalists to probe into his past and some probably uncovered instances of infidelity. Arnold likely caught wind of the ensuing shitstorm and cut them off at the pass.

This has been Logic 101
