    It's been more than 15-years since he lived in the White House, disgraced this nation by committing adultery with Monica, and committed adultery against his wife [Hillary]...yet many in the radical nation of Islam have not forgotten or forgiven the Clinton for the spectacle and disgrace they brought upon Americans and marriage as a whole.

    This is one more example of how differently people from around this world view, the Western society and its liberal, wild, loose living styles.

    Maybe Americans should sit up and take notice? Maybe Americans should not be as forgetful as they are forgiving? Jus' sayin' and thinkin'???

    Or maybe they were taunting her for supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and found chanting "Monica, Monica" to be another way to tease her. In other words, they weren't putting much stock in Clinton's infidelity as a way to protest her visit to Egypt.

    I think it's time to let some of this history go. It was a bad action and President Clinton will suffer the judgment of history for it. The current situation where Secretary Clinton's motorcade received harassment that used this former event as a pretext for their hatred.

    It's time to move on.

    Point Taken...

    ....while I agree that this was a taunting point, I still think it is interesting that of all the things they could use to taunt her, or America, they chose that point. While it may be time to move on....this incident shows that some parts of the world have yet to move on!

    You have some GREAT opinions on almost everything, brother, so why don't you send a letter to the editor of Hundustantimes and tell them it is time to move on? It is easy to tell me, but your true stance for history to move beyond this issue would be you writing them and giving them an ear full!

    I am appointing you to represent your opinion and views and make them known through a letter to the papers editor. I'd love to see what kind of response you receive from those folks in Africa? :thumbs:

    Isn't islam the religion that still says that it was OK for Muhammed to take multiple wives, and even "rape" a child under 12 years old, in order to "consumate' their wedding, as that was the 'prophets" proragitive?

    I remember a commentator remarking one time that Ronald Reagan had so much respect for the Oval Office that he wouldn't even take his coat off while in the room.

    A man of integrity!

    Then, here comes Bill Clinton with a hussy under the desk and now we have a sympathizer/member of the Muslim Brotherhood sitting in the office.

    The Lord is giving America what America wanted, no?

    Sadly, America is reaping the consequences of her loose living. It is evidenced around us. No longer do we maintain pride in our distiniction as a nation which include a Christian foundation, integrity, patriotism, and ethics. We compromise on so many issues and choose to accept everyone as he is.

    We embrace the muslims or at least agree to friendly coexistance. How are Americans so blind to their actual intentions? This religion and a high majority of its followers HATE Americans, and despise Christians ten times more than that. Minimal research on this religion and its followers will reveal this.

    Oh, please. These protesters weren't shouting, "Monica, Monica" at Hillary because they had any righteous indignation over any past immorality of her husband. They were hurling Monica's name as a offensive weapon of insult - not a defensive protection of morality.

    Call me cynical, but nobody gives crap what Bill Clinton did 15 years ago in that office with Monica. Not those Egyptians today and not Americans then. Oh - we feigned a little pout over the fact that he lied about it to our faces and we huffed and puffed about it over the water cooler and the Sunday School table, but other than that we did nothing and he bore no penalty - politically, personally, legally, or otherwise - because we never insisted that he did. Largely, America's only response was to snicker about it like junior high children and to burst the doors open into making oral s*x with an unmarried partner something that is the hallmark of being cool, hip, enlightened, and mature - even to the point where every school teacher in America, public, private, homeschool, and Christian alike, can tell you that oral s*x among teenagers is their "high water mark" of maturation in junior high and high school. And it started with Bill Clinton and his "free pass". The message that American youth receieved was - if the president could do that with an unmarried partner and bear no penalty - then it must not be immoral.

    America paid a price for what he did. But he didn't. And won't.

    Monica still gets called names - as evidenced in this thread - and Bill Clinton still gets called "Mr. President".

    And these protesters don't care about anything he did. They just used what they thought was an effective tool to insult Hillary for insult's sake - not righteousness' sake.

    I don't get it. She was the one who got cheated on. Why would they be taunting her for that? This just seems like they needed some way to make a cut at her because of her CURRENT work with the Obama Administration.

    There is not one male on this board who has not committed adultery. The only difference between us and Bill is that we have never been elected President, and we do not have to listen to Hillary's mouth everyday.

    There's a big difference in what Bill Clinton did in the White House with Monica and what the average man on the street - Christian or otherwise - does in his heart.

    And there's even a difference in what he did and what the handful of men in my church did in actually consummating a literal adulterous affair.

    Bill's adultery led to the mind-numbing change in American attitude about the type of adulterous s*x he and Monica participated in. He and Monica moved the s*xual immorality tolerance boundaries of a nation. I can testify to that with my own eyes.

    No even Kennedy - who was far more prolific than Clinton in that regard - can make that claim.

    It was probably a bad comparison. The thing that made that incident so bad is the damage it did to the office of the Presidency. I do not know much about Kennedy's situation, but do not recall it being all over the news at the time, although I was pretty young.

    Oh, I agree that it also did damage to the office of Presidency.

    And Kennedy - no, it wasn't all over the news at the time - but after the fact, we know. Also, during his administration, it was alright to do these things as long as no one knew. But with Clinton - there's no more shame and no more attempt to even hide the fact of immorality. In fact, immorality is hardly ever called immorality anymore.
