>A Classic Case Of "Methinks Thou Dost Protest Too Much."

>Why does it keep turning out that the folks who are the most anti-gay or anti-pedophile are neither?

The leader of the 30 million-member National Association of Evangelicals, a vocal opponent of same-sex marriage, resigned Thursday after being accused of paying for sex with a man in monthly trysts over the past three years.

The Rev. Ted Haggard, a married father of five who has been called one of the most influential evangelical Christians in the nation, denied the allegations.

Denied the allegations“? Then why the heck did he step down? If he was innocent, he would fight tooth-and-nail, knowing that God and his faith were on his side. People only step down when they know some sh*t is about to hit the fan.

The allegations come as voters in Colorado and seven other states get ready to decide Tuesday on amendments banning gay marriage.

[…]

Mike Jones, 49, of Denver told The Associated Press he decided to go public with his allegations because of the political fight. Jones, who said he is gay, said he was upset when he discovered Haggard and the New Life Church had publicly opposed same-sex marriage.

It made me angry that here’s someone preaching about gay marriage and going behind the scenes having gay sex,” said Jones, who added that he isn’t working for any political group.

Jones, whose allegations were first aired on KHOW-AM radio in Denver, claimed Haggard paid him to have sex nearly every month over three years. Jones also said Haggard snorted methamphetamine before their sexual encounters to heighten his experience.

It’s always the holiest rollers and the ones who seem most steadfast and loyal who’ve got something to hide. It’s almost becoming predictable now. In the movie The Godfather

Don Corleone (Marlon Brando) tells Michael (Al Pacino)—his son and heir apparent (actually, he was the heir unapparent until he turned out to be the baddest mofo of all)—that the one who comes to tell him about the meeting with Barzini will be the betrayer. One of Don Corleone’s very own men, Tessio (played by Abe Vigoda), is the one who tells Michael about the meeting…

…thus revealing himself to be the worm.

I contend that Reverend Ted Haggard

Mark Foley, former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey, and more are all Tessios, only they make more noise. They come a-running to us warning that they’re fighting for morality and what’s biblically right, meanwhile they’re doing all manner of things—the very things they claim to abhor—behind closed doors.

Remember people, sometimes the ones who raise the most hell about things…DING!! DING!! DING!! DING!! DING!! They’re the ones!!!

*Why is it, in almost all instances, these holier-than-thou hellraisers are men?

  1. >Food for thought. If Mark Foley felt confident that his style of life (note I didn't say lifestyle) would not have been affected if he lived as an openly gay man do you think there is a possibility that he may not have been lusting after innocent pages who were seduced by his perceived power.The subject of this post probably wouldn't have paid for sex in secret if he could have lived openly however he chose to live.Ever notice how the few openly-gay politicians never have a scandal associated with their names? Now this doesn't mean to imply that all freaks and perverts have earned a "get out of jail free" card but it is worth considering.When I was a teenager my mother gave me my first joint (no, she didn't smoke). She told told me she never wanted anyone telling her that they saw her child in the street drinking or doing drugs. If I was to drink or smoke (cigs or bud) then I should do it at home. My mother only had a high school education but her reverse psychology worked. I tried the joint (it was some good shit) but after that rarely smoked and only took a drink once. Even today I hardly ever drink — the thrill of the sneak was removed so long ago that it lost its appeal.But back to Lo's original point. I agree, usually it's the loadest wheel that has the most to hide.

  3. >On the real, though, and maybe my 'gaydar' is working overtime…Doesn't this Ted Haggard guy look highly suspicious? I mean that cheesy grin and those manic eyes? Somehow, I'm not surprised at all that he turned out to be playing for the other team…

  4. >Maybe they grew up in environments that would never be tolerant of homosexuality, and so they were so frightened of their own sexuality that they try to convince themselves otherwise by taking the most extreme opposite approach.Sure doesn't explain the pedophilia, though, 'cause that's just wrong.Also, I happen to think that this is pretty good evidence that being gay isn't a choice. Why would someone with so much to lose "choose" to do risk it all with a scandal like this if he wasn't attracted to men?

  7. >There must be a lot of money involved in this as I saw him interviewed about the entire thing in his car, in front of his wife and kids! If he'd been married to a sista, they would've had to interview him from the ICU.And to be honest, I've never blaimed the charlatans for the power they derive. This gaybait had 30 MILLION followers! So many people around this planet have such a great desire to be led, they'll hook their wagons to any cretin that exudes charisma. But honestly, when you see these people speak, like this Haggard guy, or Pat Robertson, don't the hairs on the back of your neck stand up? I guess Haggard felt he'd fucked so many others over the years, it was his turn to take it up the wazoo! Whoa!
