Haggard had relationship with ex-church volunteer
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/sns-ap-r...

Disgraced evangelical leader Ted Haggard's former church disclosed Friday that the gay sex scandal that caused his downfall extends to a young male church volunteer who reported having a sexual relationship with Haggard a revelation that comes as Haggard tries to repair his public image.

Brady Boyd, who succeeded Haggard as senior pastor of the 10,000-member New Life Church in Colorado Springs, told The Associated Press that the man came forward to church officials in late 2006 shortly after a Denver male prostitute claimed to have had a three-year cash-for-sex relationship with Haggard.

Boyd said an "overwhelming pool of evidence" pointed to an "inappropriate, consensual sexual relationship" that "went on for a long period of time ... it wasn't a one-time act." Boyd said the man was in his early 20s at the time. He said he was certain the man was of legal age when it began.

1. These people would be sad
If they weren't so dangerously determined to inflict their misery on others.

4. Yup. But it must be hell
To be a fundy and realize that you're gay. Those of us who follow a more tolerant spiritual path could accept that and move on. These guys must hate themselves: no wonder they're so sick and twisted.

As I said - sad. But dangerous as hell.
