Brian Flemming points out that Ted Haggard insists the biblical word on homosexuality is simple, and that the Bible says “They must be put to death.”
I’m not really into throwing rocks at people, but maybe I’d be willing to run the fried foods onna stick concession.
Slacktivist offers a rather more realistic prediction of what to expect.
All that language — forgiveness, deliverance, confession, repentance — really means here only that Haggard needs to go back to living a lie. If he agrees to live that lie, and with clenched teeth to continue proclaiming that others must join in living that lie, then Haggard will be “accepted” back “into fellowship.”
Well, heck. We won’t be able to sell tickets to that.
