(Mediaite) Listening to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie talk about his sex life isn’t exactly anything anyone wants to hear right now. Unfortunately, potential voters in a New Hampshire restaurant had to hear all about it on Tuesday morning.
Christie is just one of the many GOP candidates who have made stops in the New England conservative state. While discussing his Catholicism and whether or not religion had a place in politics, the governor addressed the often touchy subject of contraception:
“I’m a Catholic, but I’ve used birth control, and not just the rhythm method, okay?”That’s when a man seated in front of Christie, wearing a white shirt and a red tie, dropped his head in his hands in the hopes of disguising his smirk. We don’t know his name or who he is, but he just became our nation’s everyman:
The New Jersey governor continued, arguing his “church has a teaching against birth control,” but his use of contraceptives doesn’t make him “an awful Catholic.”
