Blame it on the boogie

Breaking News: Ted Haggard, named by Time Magazine as one of the most influential evangelicals in America, has resigned from his post as President of the National Association of Evangelicals after a male prostitute alleged that that the two enjoyed a three-year "business relationship." Pastor Haggard is a leading proponent of a constitutional ban on gay marriage. To his credit, he has also tried to make evangelicals more active in dealing with global warming and world poverty but it is the sin thing that fires his engines.

This news throws new light on a statement in a May 2005 article about Haggard in Harper's Magazine, which said that he once "staked out gay bars, inviting men to come to his church."
