The Haggard Story: PZ Nails It
If you haven't heard by now, the creepy, creepy pastor Ted Haggard is in a world of hurt right now as allegations of a private gay life are coming out (no pun intended ;) ). I think, though, that this post nails it. PZ is right. To me, I could care less if Ted is gay. If he was cheating on his wife, that's pretty callous, but I don't care that he was romping around with another guy. What this does show, though, is one of the most vocal opponents of homosexuality may be gay to the core, and he was repressing himself. This would give more weight to the view that if someone is gay-bashing, they may be covering something up...
At the moment, there's no clear-cut view on what Haggard really did or didn't do. But he has stepped down from his ministry. In my view, that can't be a good sign. I mean, if you know you didn't do anything wrong, why not stand against the accusations right now?
But is is nice to see that 'Dr' Dino just got pwned.
