Just Kidding, I'm Gay...

Last week we brought you the story about the evangelical preacher who was leading his people in the holy war against buttsex while doing meth and getting stuffed by a gay hooker on his free time. Sweet irony.

Like any good Evangelical, he initially lied about the whole ordeal. Now Pastor Ted Haggard confessed to a "lifelong" sexual problem – otherwise known as ‘being gay and having the misfortune of growing up in an oppressive god-fearing religion.” In a letter read to members of his New Life Church Sunday, Haggard said he is "a deceiver and a liar." Haggard apologized to his congregation in the letter and asked for their forgiveness. "There is part of my life that is so repulsive and dark that I've been warring against it all of my adult life," Haggard said in the letter. Repulsive? Dark? Subtract the meth out of the situation and it sounds like he’s just a gay man who needs new friends. Will someone take him out to a gay bar so he can get on with his life?

After his letter and a letter from his wife (pictured above - who is sticking with "til death do us part" - honey, move on, you married a gay man) the church gave a standing ovation. One church full of evangelical bigots down? 44,999+ to go.

So do you think he'll vow to never answer temptation knocking at his back door again or will he turn into a flamer?

He'll do both.
