It didn't need a photoshop.

Pastor Ted making it hard? Somebody call Rush!

I'll say it again. The crime is called "hypocrisy." Nice how Pastor Haggard's books are getting a fresh look from online reviewers over at Amazon, too:

No Sir, I will not let you go to hell! But get us a bag of meth and a bottle of lube, and I'll take us both to heaven!

By now you all know that one fellow megachurch pastor has come out and said Haggard's wife may be responsible for why he strayed. I dunno, she kinda looks like the safe white Doris Day type to me. Don't let online porn sites fool you: you can never tell from a picture if she likes getting "Song of Solomon" in the back door or not.

Not to sound too cynical, but I've got five bucks that says Gayle Haggard gets a book deal and a seat on Oprah's couch before next Christmas.


  1. Yeah, but Doris Day always ended up with Rock Hudson in the third reel.



  2. Kerry - who's not running for anything at the moment, by the way, except away from his own piehole - says something really stupid and the Corporate Media makes five days worth of "news" out of it, to try and turn a few election races into being close.

    This clown - who was in on regular conference calls to The Emperor and who's a big-time leader in one of the most powerful and influential voting blocks in the country - gets caught red-handed (or something), with the tapes to prove it, and what happens? Nothing. Not a peep. Except to blame his poor wife.


  3. Another Elmer Gantry.

    I wish I could just find a way to empower people and make them realize they have the power within themselves to change for the better. But Thoreau was right, the mass of men (people) do live lives of quiet desperation.

    The question is of course whether or not she'll undergo this major Tammy Fae makeover or jump up and down on Oprah's couch.

  4. When he confessed to buying the meth and getting a message to the TV reporters, his kids were in the back seat of the car.

    Guess they will have to go the Jesus camp to recover.

  5. One of these days, check out the Orthodox Jewish interpretation of the Song of Solomon. They consider it a love song to God -- not a poem of passion.

    Just amazes me how some folks can see whatever they want. The religious right blames this man's hypocrisy on his wife, or on our country's decadent culture, or they see it as proof of the pervasiveness of Satan's influence, anything to deflect responsibility away from themselves.

  6. Thanks for the link - I did not realize you did that when I first read your post.

    Panties on me... er, oh, never mind.


  7. They ALWAYS have to blame someone else. If they didn't, they might have to see themselves and that's apparently scarier than the deepest, darkest, burning fire pit of hell.

    When they DO look, they see the flames and decide it makes a nice place to cook some meth and warm up the Analeze.

    And I'm with you, Gayle is already talking to a book publisher I'm sure. I don't usually like people who profit from such crap, but she deserves every penny for being married to that asshat.

    Hopefully with a few Gs in her pocket she'll see the light.

  8. You know, I think it really sucks that people are implying Gayle's responsible. I've seen photos of the woman. "Let herself go" my ass.

  9. I'm a firm believer that behind every great man stands an even greater woman. Even when the man falls flat on his face slipping on his gay partner's anal-eze. To blame Ms. Haggard in this instance is to avoid Stephen Covey's first principle - we choose how we respond to anything thrown our way. What's happened here is pure hypocrisy.

    My greater concern, born in my mind this morning as I was getting ready for the commute, was: "What if this is a planned act?"

    I wouldn't put it past any of these proselytizing evangelicals to have drawn straws, and decide who the actor would be... then the act goes like this:

    Gay prostitute claims to have tapes of him having sex and doing meth with the pastor. Pastor states, unequivocally, that he didn't do it. Then the story starts to slide, and suddenly, he DID do it. Congregational "independent counsel" "fires him for committing sexual immorality (whatever that is)", and puts pastor in a 12-step program. Pastor "gets cleaned up," and announces after repentance that the 12-step program cured him of his gayness. Pastor is reinstated. Marriage is saved. Life goes on.

    Faith is restored in him, and the ability to "cure the disease".

    I'm probably wrong... and I hope I'm wrong.

  10. When are we going to find out Just Who Gannon was doing in the Whitehouse, by the way?

  11. sean- oh yes, I'm sure plenty of Twelve-stepping is in Haggard's future.

    Remember the faithful will always forgive "their own". As long as he gives up his gayness and comes back to Jesus. They will even write him thousand dollar checks again.

    It's because "they" are frickin stupid.

    Blaming the wife for this guy's action is just another example of Male biased church sentiment. They didn't want "Adam and Steve", but apparently their church leaders are giving it to them. They can't blame THIS SIN on a woman, no matter how much they have in the past.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
