That's Not Egg On His Face

OK. Just from the title you should realize this post is about pastor Haggard (adjective - a : wild in appearance b : having a worn or emaciated appearance).

"There is part of my life that is so repulsive and dark that I've been warring against it all of my adult life,"
says Haggard in a letter. What he means is that he finds himself repulsive and that if he can make others feel worse about themselves then, relatively, he'll feel better.

His wife said that
while her heart is broken, she remains "committed to him until death do us part."
"Committed" being the operative word there. Wake up lady, your husband is gay. And not like the nineties. Unfortunately, she's not allowed to think for herself. The Bible tells her what to do, like a Stepford Wife. You will forgive. You will not put anything asunder that God has joined. You will only cast a first stone if you are without sin. Try joining the Church of Self Respect.

And while the accuser says he came forward, um, I mean, he came clean, um, I mean, he went public because he couldn't stand the hypocrisy of Haggard supporting a Colorado Constitutional Amendment limiting marriage to be between one man and one woman, I don't see the hypocrisy there. If Haggard wanted to marry Jones, that would be hypocrisy. If Haggard was supporting an Amendment that prohibited married men from having sex with male prostitutes, that would be hypocrisy.

There's probably a word for a man who heads a church, supports an amendment to prevent gays from marrying and has sex with a male prostitute. I'm sure there's one in German. If there's not already one in English, Haggard sound good.
