Haggard: 'Inappropriate' relationship not physical

Haggard: 'Inappropriate' relationship not physical

DENVER – Fallen evangelical pastor Ted Haggard says he had an "inappropriate relationship" with a young male church volunteer, but it did not involve physical contact.

Haggard's successor at Colorado Springs' New Life Church, Brady Boyd, has said evidence pointed to an "inappropriate, consensual sexual relationship" between Haggard and the man, who was in his early 20s.

Haggard said in a new statement Monday that he met with the young man two years ago, along with his wife and a representative of New Life Church. At that time, he asked the man's forgiveness for "our inappropriate relationship."

His statement says, "Although there was no physical contact, I have regretted my irresponsibile (sic) behavior."

Does this yahoo actually think we're that "thick?" Well, okay there are those who are, but overall this is just an insult to one's intelligence.

Hey, maybe that's what they mean by intelligent design.

What is you're view on the Rev. Haggard?

His statements were not aimed at us, the people they were aimed at are that thick. You could take picture of the guy having sex with a dead male puppy, he'll make some excuse and the true believers will buy it.

Doesn't the Buybull say somewhere if you just look on someone with lust in your heart it's as bad as if you've committed the actual act? So why does it matter if he never got physical? As far as his holy book and religion are concerned he may as well have had hot gay sex a million times.

Not that I buy his claim for a minute, mind you. But it's the sad reality of a hateful theology that forces men like him into a life of the closet, denial, self-loathing and bigotry towards the very people he should be trying to help advance the human rights of.
