This morning I woke up and checked my email and what did I see on Yahoo News but:
Evangelist steps down amid gay sex claim
For my friends who say there is no God, I offer this to you as proof to the contrary. There is a God, and if you are a bastard, you should be careful – because God is a far bigger bastard than you.
News like this makes my whole fucking week, let alone my day. You might think after the innumerable scandals involving public religious figures that have played out just in my lifetime – Jimmy Swaggart fucking hookers, Jim Bakker embezzling millions of dollars from his own ministry and raping his church secretary, God only knows how many Catholic priests molesting children and teenagers, to name only a few – that I would be sick of hearing about shit like this. But I never tire of it. The more sanctimonious hypocritical assholes can be revealed, the happier I am. The subject of this scandal, Ted Haggard, is a real son of a bitch, too.
Haggard, according to the accusations, has been paying a man to meet him for sex about once a month for the last three years. This despite the fact that the Rev. Haggard is married and has five children, and, failing to grasp the concept of irony, has spent the last two years running around the country rallying the troops to fight against legalizing gay marriage. According to the story, Haggard also regularly had his lover score him some methamphetamine, which he would then snort before they fucked to “heighten his experience.”
