Another Hypocrite Bites The Dust
The Denver Post reports that a teary pastor of a megachurch in Denver has resigned. Guess Howling Latina doesn't have to tell you, boys and girls, the reason why.
That's right, he is G-A-Y.
In a tearful videotaped message Sunday to his congregation, the senior pastor of a thriving evangelical megachurch in south metro Denver confessed to sexual relations with other men and announced he had voluntarily resigned his pulpit.Oh yes, less than a month ago, Rev. Paul Barnes was preaching and praying over the horrid news that Rev. Ted Haggard was a gay druggie who regularly used the service of a male whore.
Now, the 54-year-old Barnes joins Haggard as a fallen evangelical minister who preached that homosexuality was a sin but grappled with a hidden life. have struggled with homosexuality since I was a 5-year-old boy," Barnes said in the 32- minute video, which church leaders permitted The Denver Post to view. "... I can't tell you the number of nights I have cried myself to sleep, begging God to take this away."
Well, at least the good reverend had the decency to stay out of the gay ballot melee this past fall, the Post notes.
There's a lesson in this for you homophobic GOPers, and especially for the wingnut Virginia bloggers who are so obsessed with whether this candidate or that one is gay.
Who gives a rat's ass, besides GOPers and their merry band of so-called Christian homophobics?!?
It's a condition, like the color one one's skin, eyes or hair. No one wakes up one morning and suddenly decides to become gay and says to themselves, "What a lovely idea, I think I'll starting liking members of my own sex!"
There is no shame in being gay; you're either born gay or you're not; and that's just the way it is.
We could possiblibly be wiped out in a couple of generations.
Why aren't the Liberals trying to solve this genetic problem...?
Don't they think the LGBT are worth sacrificing a couple million babies for research to fix this problem?
Surely 10-15% of the population is worth more than Christopher Reeves!
They CHOOSE to be evil, scum-sucking, anti-American liars!
No excuses--ALL Conservatives/GOPers go to hell.
No gettin' around it, kids.
