Pastor Ted Haggard and the Evangelical Movement are Losers of the Week


New Life Church’s acting pastor said Friday that the Rev. Ted Haggard, his predecessor now embroiled in a gay-escort scandal, has acknowledged some of the accusations are true.

In an e-mail to congregants, Ross Parsley wrote that the church’s four-member board of overseers had met with Haggard.

“It is important for you to know that he confessed to the overseers that some of the accusations against him are true. He has willingly and humbly submitted to the authority of the board of overseers, and will remain on administrative leave during the course of the investigation,” the e-mail stated.



I am so sick of the insane evangelical movement! These holier than thou types continue to shove their beliefs and judgements in my face about my life. Why does religion get so protected by the government? They have more protections than I do as a gay American. What is even scarier is the people who follow this branch of religion. The followers throw out science and common sense and they send money to their hypocritical leaders, like Ted Haggard. America…wake up! These people are trying to take away our constitutional rights to freedom, while they hide behind their rights to freedom of religion.

Ted Haggard and the evengelical momement are my losers of the week.

  1. What evidence?! Lol! Evangelicals ARE pricks. Since when have gay people been immoral? have evangelicals found a way to control their hormones and sexual tendencies? If they have, why not share this with the rest of the world in order to ‘fix’ gay people? Or maybe you evangelists haven’t shared it because you are sooooo far up your own arses that you can’t get back out to tell anyone….
    and what makes evangelicals think thay have the right to try to pass on their religious prejudices to others? If God exists surely people will find him on their own? Please feel free to believe in what you want (even if you do this without any real or viable evidence), but i think it would be best if you keep these idiocies to yourself.

  2. I don't think he's a loser, he's a man with the same human frailties as us all. You know the saying, don't judge others lest you be judged and found wanting… blah blah
    I really think it was his big salary which led to his downfall, no one needs that much dosh for themselves. Money was his god and he thought he could get away with anything he wanted. God, the real God just got in his way, coz he won't be made a fool of.
