I think it's safe to assume this guy was a Republican:
An Alabama minister who died in June of ‘accidental mechanical asphyxia’ was found hogtied and wearing two complete wet suits, including a face mask, diving gloves and slippers, rubberized underwear, and a head mask, according to an autopsy report.” He also had a dildo up his ass, but it was wearing a condom.
And the pastor, Gary Aldridge, once worked for Jerry Falwell. Roll on Cocktober!
And surprise! The fundies don't understand the meaning of "autoerotic".
