Hypocrisy is running rampant through America's religious communities these days. And exposing hypocrisy is...fun! At least for those of us who can point it out!
(From the Denver Post, Jan. 23, 2009)
Disgraced evangelical leader Ted Haggard's former church disclosed Friday that the gay sex scandal that caused his downfall extends to a young male church volunteer who reported having a sexual relationship with Haggard — a revelation that comes as Haggard tries to repair his public image.
Brady Boyd, who succeeded Haggard as senior pastor of New Life, said the church reached a legal settlement to pay the man for counseling and college tuition, with one condition being that none of the parties involved discuss the matter publicly.
We considered it more compassionate assistance — certainly not hush money.
A documentary, The Trials of Ted Haggard, is to be aired on HBO within several days. With this new twist, we wonder how this "in depth and insightful" piece will be viewed. Instead of HBO, FOX News should have produced it. They're so good at comedy.
Just a thought.
