Man, sometimes you just marvel and say WTF at the double-lives that these Theocons in the Republican Party are living.
Who the hell is Ted Haggard?
Pastor Ted has recently been interviewed by Barbara Walters, Tom Brokaw, Bill O'Reilly, and Chris Matthews. Time Magazine has included Pastor Ted in their list of the 25 Most Influential Evangelicals in America. The Wall Street Journal noted his advisory role with the Bush White House, calling him one "of the nation's most politically influential" clergy, and Harper's Magazine says, "No pastor in America holds more sway over the political direction of evangelicalism than does Pastor Ted."
My guess is that this sorta knocks John Kerry off of the headlines. And that it happens just in time for the 72 hour Republican GOTV program that centers around getting evangelicals to volunteer to leaflet super-church parking lots is serendipity, or karma, in action.Update [2006-11-3 8:20:54 by Jerome Armstrong]:This is so bizarre.

And the video below, from Jesus Camp, is a classic (via AmericaBlog, the blog to follow this story):
