This is acting out?

Everyone has heard of the scandal of the Rev Ted Haggard, pastor of one of the largest Evangelical Christian churches in the US. After Haggard resigned his pastoral duties due to the fact that he enjoyed buttsex with male prostitutes he did what all celebrities do, he went to therapy. And not the lower-middle class therapy like most people go through where years of counseling and work are necessary to cleanse oneself of certain addictions. Proving he's got the will power of your average rock star the Rev Haggard got 'cured' of the gays in only three weeks.

One pastor, who helped Haggard see the error of his Brokeback ways, had this to say about Ted's behavior and therapy: "He is completely heterosexual. That is something he discovered. It was the acting- out situations where things took place. It wasn't a constant thing. If we're going to be proved wrong (about Haggard only having contact with Mike Jones), somebody else is going to come forward, and that usually happens really quickly."

Usually when people act out alcohol, drugs, and petty theft are involved. Until now I didn't know that acting out involved giving oral to another man while on meth. I've lead a sheltered life. All I did was play with tuna bombs and dabbled in vandalism. Thank you Reverend for showing all men that to truly let go of inhibitions you must like man butt.

I can't believe I just typed that. Enough about gay men of God. Let's get to the stuff you really want to see:

“Everybody recognizes he is not a representative voice. He is a TV pundit and personality who is a Christian, ... Pat doesn't speak for evangelicals any more than Dr. Phil speaks for mental health professionals.” - Ted Haggard

what is a tuna bomb?

whatigotsofar - Tuna bombs were dynamite that fisherman threw in the ocean. Once the explosion happened tuna rose to the surface and they'd net em. Now illegal I hear, but once an industry standard.

And oh man did I have fun with those.
