    Here's another log for the cabin:

    First*, there was virulently anti-gay congressman Ed Schrock (MP3). Then there was virulently anti-free-Internet congressman Mark Foley.

    Today, the president of the National Association of Evangelicals, Ted Haggard, who was featured in this year's documentary Jesus Camp preaching against homosexuality and who has been an aggressive proponent of Colorado's hate amendment --- has stepped down following revelations that he had relations with a male prostitute who kept recorded messages that Haggard left on his answering machine.



    *Okay, not "first" by a long-shot: There was Roy Cohn (1950's), Robert Bauman (1980), John Paulk (2000), Brent Parker (2003), James Guckert (2005), Jim West (2005), and many other lesser-known right-wingers.

    I'm really loving the "is a friend of mine" defense thats coming from the right wing these days. I first noticed it when GWB was supporting Haskert "he's a friend of mine, i know he's a good man." Now Dobson (who i loathe) is supporting Haggard with the same defense. Have we reverted to the middle ages? Do we now assess a man's guilt or innocence based on who his friends are?

    It's all so infuriating.

    This all makes Clinton's BJ look like chior boy behavior (no pun intended).

    I've long held that fundamentalists of the most ardent zeal have skeletons rattling around their closets. Whenever someone starts pontificating about the evils of homosexuality (or any other "abomination"), I can't help thinking that perhaps he doth protest too much.:rolleyes:

    Just another hypocrite on parade.

    I've always wondered just how many fundamentalists are self loathing gays. The number in my mind has always been around 30% but that's just a number I picked. No evidence to back that up.

    Has anyone else missed the point that, if these guys would stop perpetuating the myth that homosexuality is wrong, then maybe they wouldn't be in the midst of a scandal when they engage in homosexual activities? They are always just SO eager to cast that first stone, aren't they?

    Patient: "Doctor, it hurts when I do this."
    Doctor: "Then stop doing that."

    Yes, but if it wasn't forbidden then it wouldn't have the same appeal to them. Sex is only good when it is BAD. :rolleyes:

    That's just fine with me. Let him live openly as a gay man, then sneak around with female prostitutes to have "hetrosekshul" relations.

    Here is Ted in all his glory. The movie is called "The Root of All Evil", produced by famous scientist and strident atheist Richard Dawkins. In this segment, Dawkins visits Ted Haggard'ss huge megachurch. Near the end, he has a conversation with Haggard about Evengelical religion and science.

    Dawkins is always the gentleman, but he gets a bit rattled by the sheer bombastics of Haggard in the interview near the end.

    Anyway, watch Haggard in the close-ups during the interview part and see what you think about the guy. He creeps me out IMHO.

    I wonder how much the DNC paid out.

    First Foley and now this. Propitious timing for the Dem's I must say.

    What the hell does a prostitute care about marriage anyway?

    Oh well, maybe another prominent lefty will shoot themself in the ass.


    ps - I hate megapreachers just as much or more than anybody. The timing here just smells a little fishy.

    if evangelicals would keep their faces out of politics, this wouldn't be such a big story in the first place.

    Nobody asked them to start influencing elections.

    For me, evangelists are a lot like NASCAR - yes, they're both repetitive and dull as they go around in circles repeatedly, but I still like to watch them, hoping for a crash.

    yes, actually there is a look. watch the video clips.

    as this story unfolds i'm beginning to feel sorry for him. it's sad. there's a gay man in there that can't come out.
