2. Can't really say anything about that.

He says he is an avowed heterosexual. He might be just that. His problem might be that he is an asshole with women he dates or has sex.

Martin asked if he has any children and he responded that he didn't. The question was raised because of the TANP school grades legislation he introduced. Doesn't have good background when it comes to legislation involving children.

4. Hmm! Regents College.

Is that Falwell's institution in VA?

You don't have to speculate where this guy's allegiance is coming from.

6. No. They are different things.

NYS has a Regents diploma system. http://www.hesc.ny.gov/content.nsf/SFC/Regents_Requirements

This is Regent University: http://www.regent.edu/
