[T]he board of overseers has met with Pastor Ted. It is important for you to know that he confessed to the overseers that some of the accusations against him are true. He has willingly and humbly submitted to the authority of the board of overseers, and will remain on administrative leave during the course of the investigation.
Some might read this and think "this is not news, this is fluff." To which I say, "no way." I read this with extreme satisfaction. I have a seething rage for all these holier-than-thou religious conservatives who gay-bash. These people, like Dobson, make me want to puke. I have so much satisfaction in seeing them exposed for what they are, morally corrupt. Not for being gay, but for being so anti-gay. This is one of the biggest religious leaders in the country, featured in an earlier blog [here and here] as having direct access to the white house on a weekly basis. He has been spearheading an anti-gay amendment in Colorado. He has called homosexuality immoral and something that "excludes one from the Kingdom of God." Reaction Formation anyone?
