The Surest Sign of Guilt

Ted Haggard has resigned from his post as president of the National Association of Evangelicals and has placed himself on “administrative leave” as pastor of New Life Church, pending an internal investigation of the accusations made by a former male escort that he and Haggard had sex over a three-year period.

While this is not proof that the allegations are true, it suggests to me that they are.

this shit seriously angers me. how many self-righteous fundamentalist leaders have to be caught in sex "scandals" - gay, straight, interspecies, whatever - before people realize what hypocritical swindlers thay are?
i recently went on a blind date with a greek american guy (against my better judgement), and one of the first things he asks me is, what is my "stand" on homosexuality? wtf? is this a standard getting-to-know-you question these days? i guess it should be, considering how well his "stand" illuminated his character.
anyway, he informed me that he does not allow gay people into his house, and i informed him that he was a complete and utter malaka. he then gravely remarkered that he "hadn't realized that i wasn't an orthodox christian". at that point i told him we didn't need to bother with dinner.
the point of my ramble is that nothing infuriates me more than assholes who drag the name of jesus through their own shit. it's expected enough in a cracker preacher, i guess, but in one of my own? that shit just makes me want to pull a matthew weber on the greeks.
btw, i'm sure it won't be long before my blind date is forcibly outed as well.

evangelia mou,
i've missed you! what a terrible blind date experience!! if it's any consolation, i don't think he's representative of most greek-american men. and i LOVE that you've turned "matthew weber" into a synonym for a vitriolic and irrational tirade against an entire race of people! brilliant!

love it! "pull a matthew weber" - wow, you know it's funny, i used almost that exact expression earlier this week (I said "going weber on you") during a dinner conversation with someone who knew exactly what I was talking about (i.e., someone knowledgeable about this blog, and it's sometimes sordid history...).

sorry, matt. hate to say it, but sometimes, the shoe fits.

evangelia - sorry as well for your unfortunate experience, but thanks for the colorful tale all the same-

thanks sandouri dean and outiboy. as for the blind date, i think that his diamond studded greek key pinkie ring should have hipped me to the skip before he even brought up the homosexuality thing. i mean, a diamond greek key pinkie ring? when your fashion idol is joey buttafuoco, you are probably not going to be the most erudite of individuals.
btw, dino, how is neretta doing?
