Ted Haggard and the Vengeance of Doom

Ted Haggard is in trouble again. No, he has not done anything new. Rather, some sleazy kid decided he wants to talk about an alleged sexual relationship with Haggard. Claiming to be a spurned lover, or something otherwise questionable, he feels icky about Haggard's portrayal in the upcoming HBO movie "The Trials of Ted Haggard."

What's really going on? Maybe it happened as he claims, maybe it didn't. That's secondary to the whacked out perversion some jilted kid feels here that he wants to announce it to the world.

A salute to New Life Church, which has handled all of this with class. Thumbs down to the bonehead who wants to hurt Haggard for something the kid feels a movie producer is doing. To Ted Haggard, I hope you're dealing better with this than the kid.

Pastor Steals from Flock Thousands (And Gets Busted)

$370,000. That's a lot of money.

Naturally, some people will say God screwed up just because a pastor is a thief. They obviously weren't especially sure about God in the first place.

Or is an embezzler not technically a thief? Who knows? But he is an A number one chump.

Either way, few things are lower than stealing the widow's mite, especially if you are the guy in charge.
