Church Leader Resigns After Gay Sex Claim

This is a good one.  One of the country’s top Evangelical Ministers, has been caught with his pants down.

Rev. Ted Haggart has resigned from his position as President of the National Association of Evangelicals and has temporary resigned as Pastor of his 14,000 member church for allegedly paying for sex from a male escort.

Now of course he is denying the accusations; well somewhat.  According the Post article the male escort has decided to come forward because:

“Jones told Peter Boyles, host of a talk-radio show on KHOW-AM station, that he has recorded voice-mail messages and a letter from Haggard, and that he witnessed the pastor using methamphetamine. But he did not immediately produce the alleged voice-mails or letter.”

“Jones indicated that he is going public with the accusations at least in part because Colorado has two questions related to same-sex marriage on Tuesday’s ballot. One is Amendment 43, which would define marriage as between one man and one woman, and which Haggard has supported. The other is Referendum 1, which would give same-sex couples more legal rights and benefits.”

Religious groups across the board rallied behind President Bush and his Neo-Con buddies, because of they were Pro-Family (Anti-Gay) and Pro-Life (Anti Abortion).  And what we have seen on both sides is hypocrisy.  They even convinced many in the black church to vote the conservative republican agenda and it got them no where; well excpet for Cleflo Dollar, J.D. Jakes and few other mega church ministers in this country.  Wake up America, our religious leadership and those in politics who claim to be the template fo morality are all a bunch of chicken heads.  I could care less who wsa gay or striaght, I am concerned about the economy, health care and crime.
