He's So Christian

Hypocrites! This guy has been one of the leaders of the marriage amendment (read: anti-gay) push across the nation.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Rev. Ted Haggard, who stepped down as head of the 30 million-member National Association of Evangelicals on Thursday after allegations that include having gay sex, has confessed to some of the allegations, a fellow pastor said in an e-mail to church members.

"It is important for you to know that he confessed to the overseers that some of the accusations against him are true,” Ross Parsley, the acting senior pastor at New Life Church stated. Haggard on Thursday also stepped aside as leader of the 14,000-member New Life Church, based in Colorado Springs.

Gee, I wonder what other skeletons might be found in the closets of the most hard-line of the right-wingers pushing for passage of this abomination. Ever wonder why the tenets of the Bible these people hold so dear to their hearts never apply to themselves?

If you believe in the Law of Averages, there are as many skeletons in the closets of Lefties as of Righties.

Except the Lefties wear the skeletons as badges of Courage--for which large doses of ampicillin are usually required.

Equivalency, equivalency .. thy argument is naught but equivalency. And consequently, worth naught.

Naught at all...

The Preacher's problem is the cognitive dissonance between "preached" and "practiced" morality, which implies that morality is valuable.

OTOH, Barney Franks acknowledged no "morality," nor did Ted Kennedy.

Hardly "equivalency."
