Evangelical leaders knew Haggard was gay

In the interest of politics, evangelical leaders did nothing. Can there be any worse hypocrisy then selling your soul for political gain?

Then, as if things could not get worse, there was the disgrace of Sheldon’s own friend and colleague, Rev. Ted Haggard, the Colorado mega-church leader and president of the National Association of Evangelicals, an even bigger pillar of Republican support on the Christian right. Sheldon disclosed that he and “a lot” of others knew about Haggard’s homosexuality “for awhile ... but we weren’t sure just how to deal with it.”


Months before a male prostitute publicly revealed Haggard’s secret relationship with him, and the reverend’s drug use as well, “Ted and I had a discussion,” explained Sheldon, who said Haggard gave him a telltale signal then: “He said homosexuality is genetic. I said, no it isn’t. But I just knew he was covering up. They need to say that.”

I've noticed that you've written a lot about this Ted Haggard scandal and I thought you might find this interesting => AS IF Soliciting A Male Prostitute & Using Meth Were NOT Bad Enough…
