Whoops! There It Is. Again.

Hold-your-breath close to the elections, another Republican/conservative scandal-in-the-making: Key evangelical quits amid gay sex claim (ABCNews: watch out for pop-up ads). The Rev. Ted Haggard, leader of the 30 million-member National Association of Evangelicals and head of the 14,000-member New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO, didn't exactly quit or resign as the stories are written--he has stepped aside while investigations occur.
"I am voluntarily stepping aside from leadership so that the overseer process can be allowed to proceed with integrity," Haggard said in a written statement.
Raw Story presented it a little more truthfully:
The leader of one of Colorado's most popular mega-churches, Ted Haggard, is temporarily stepping down from his leadership role, after allegations from a male prostitute that Haggard solicited gay sex.
This staunch opponent of gay marriage (it is always "gay" rather than "same-sex," all about men potentially or thinking about fucking each other) more than "solicited," allegedly, but paid for and got "gay sex" from a male "escort" about every month, allegedly, over the past 3 years, the last meeting recently:

[Mike] Jones said that he had advertised himself as an escort on the Internet and that a man who called himself Art contacted him. Jones said he later saw the man on television identified as Haggard.

He said that he last had sex with Haggard in August and that he did not warn him before making his allegations this week.

The evangelicals, the true believers, have been duped. They have been in bed with what they abhor and fear.

It's been my experience that the louder someone doth protest and agitate, the more likely it is that they are engaging in the activity they profess to loathe.

This is all very distressing. I have always been a big supporter of Gay rights and I have always loathed Republicans and evangelicals.

Now that I have found out that all of the Evangelicals and Republicans are gay, well, let's just say I'm having to reassess life as I've known it.

As a card carrying Lesbian I always thought it was a mistake to have our massive 'conversion' campaigns to the Great Unwashed, and it's now true: the Repugs and the Evangeliholics are now coming to our side of the Queer fence.

'Tis a sad day in Qeerland.

Gay Republicans--an insult to gays/lesbians worldwide. Maybe black armbands are needed in Queerland?
