« John Boehner: Idiot | Main | Michael Medved: The Next Ted Haggard? »



November 03, 2006

Well, Isn't That Special?

Christian crusader Ted Haggard owns up to some indiscretions:

The Rev. Ted Haggard, who resigned as one of the nation's top evangelical leaders, admitted Friday he had contacted a male prostitute for a massage and bought drugs from him.

Haggard, 50, said he never had sex with Mike Jones and never used the methamphetamine he bought.

Clinton smoked, but didn't inhale; Haggard bought but didn't use. I believe each of them completely. Uh huh.

What will we find out next about his relationship with this male prostitute? That he sucked but didn't swallow?

And who contacts a male prostitute for a massage? Ah, yes, the same kind of person who might go to a gay bathhouse "to get clean."

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Personally, I don't care if he's gay. I don't care if he visited a prostitute (it should be legal and that's between him and his wife). I don't care if he did drugs (adults should be able to choose to wreck their bodies).

I'm far from perfect (shhhh!) and see an element of tragedy in this whole thing; however, that whole (as Tom said in an email earlier today) "hoisted by his own petard" aspect does conjure up a wee bit of Schadenfreude.

Update: Hmmmm, I wonder what Haggard thinks about the Bible now.
