    Using the cloak of religion to take a drunken skinny dip in the Sea of Galilee is unsulting to all those who believe in the special significance of the Sea of Galilee and the River Jordan! These supposed leaders showed their true colors and she publicly be required to apologize, live and in living color (as they say in TV-land)for their juvenile and disgraceful behavior! Let them go before Pastor John Hagee's flock and explain how they defamed a holy place, disgraced their office and abused their priveliges as members of the US House! If they want to truely make ammends, let them refund the $10,000 cost of the trip...a fitting tithe, at the very least donate it to some worthwhile charity that teaches about morality, alcoholism and also go before their pastors and congregations back home and apologize to those they represent! I doubt any of this will come to pass! We're in an election year folks, and this shows deep down what some in the Rep. Party are willing to do to let off steam..., They all of us an apology!Shame, shame, shame!
