Evangelicals fixing to beat the sin out of haggard
"Christian conservative lunatics" who can't accept a man's yearnings are ready to counsel, rebuke, lay hands on, and restore The REVEREND Ted haggard who liked to pay for the services of a male prostitute with church funds. The "christian" process could take 3 to 5 years. Per H.B. (Handy Boy??) London, the prestigious VP for Church and Clergy at Focus on (Your) family, the program has a 50% success rate. "Guys just wear out." Those who "fail" "end up selling cards or shoes, and being miserable and angry the rest of their lives, said the right reverend Handy Boy.

So there ya go, "christian" leaders fail 50% of the time in attempts to reprogram those who have "sinned." Good thing they got that tax exempt thing going for em.

1. If I was successful 50% of the time at work, they'd fire my ass.

And what's so bad about selling cards or shoes? These elitist fucksticks make me ill.

5. As Sam Seder just said on AAR....
Isn't "laying on of hands" how Ted got in trouble in the first place?
