Disgraced pastor faces more gay sex accusations
Im gonna shut er down for a day or so.

Out by a factor of 400 - heh.

In the news (that site is a little clunky, a better one might be at google):

Disgraced evangelical leader Ted Haggard's former church disclosed Friday that the gay sex scandal that caused his downfall extends to a young male church volunteer who reported having a sexual relationship with Haggard — a revelation that comes as Haggard tries to repair his public image.

Then again, the timing is a little unusual:

The disclosure comes as Haggard, 52, is about to give a series of high-profile interviews to promote the cable documentary about his time in exile. He is scheduled to appear on CNN's Larry King Live on Thursday, the date of the documentary's premiere, and already has taped "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

And evidence that Haggard has turned into a screaming pinko commie liberal:

In an AP interview this month before an appearance in front of TV critics in California, Haggard described his sexuality as complex and something that can't be put into "stereotypical boxes."

Going To Hell with Ted Haggard
An interesting article in Christianity Today:

Going To Hell with Ted Haggard
What I learned about grace and redemption through my friendship with a Christian pariah.

The gist of the article: Christians say that if you confess, and have faith, you will be forgiven. So why have they never forgiven Ted Haggard?

"You Christians eat your own. Always have. Always will."

Perhaps this should be a new thread, though it is relevant to this old one.

Fundamentalism - the anti-American, anti-Christian branch of American Christianity
