BREAKING: Rev. Haggard Admits to Buying Meth and Receiving a Massage from a Gay Male Escort.

Developing story:

From CNN: The Rev. Ted Haggard admits he purchased methamphetamine from Mike Jones, the man who accuses Haggard of paying him for sex, but the pastor says he threw away the drugs.

GOI: This is the equivalent of Clinton's "I did not inhale." Of course he inhaled and I wouldn't doubt that Haggard used those meth. And he went on to say that he received a "massage" from a known gay escort. Hmmm, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to put two and two together. As they say, "Where's there's smoke, there's fire." He hasn't admitted to having sex with this gay escort but this all looks very, very suspicious. I wonder if that "massage" had a "happy ending" at the end of it.

The reason that I'm even reporting on this story is that 1). I live in Colorado. 2). He is one of the most notable Christian conservatives in the country and had President Bush's ear on a regular basis. And 3). He has admitted to buying drugs and is an outspoken critic of homosexual marriage and homosexuality in general.

He has resigned from leadership of the 14,000 strong New Life Church in Colorado Springs.

If he has "sinned" according to Christians then I think that he should be forgiven but I also think it is extreme hypocrisy.

What's also interesting living here in Colorado's 4th Congressional District is that my Congressperson is Marilyn "gay basher" Musgrave. I wonder how much contact she has had with Haggard, if she still supports him right now and if this scandal will effect the election between her and Democrat Angie Paccione. I think some of the Haggard hypocrisy will rub off on Musgrave and sway some indies to vote Paccione.

We'll see where this story goes.

UPDATE: It appears from the phone messages that Haggard wanted to buy "more." He wanted 100-200 worth of meth at one point!! That's a HUGE amount of meth!!! That's a party and then some!!!!!!!

Wow-weeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You don't just call someone about meth and say you want some "more" and then claim you've never done it. And you don't call up for 100-200 worth of meth if you're buying it for the first time.

I did not have sexual relations with that massage therapist.

What is it about these Republican self gay-haters? Here's the good pastor carrying on for three years with a male prostitute and at the same time he's bashing gay people and pushing the president's agenda on defeating gay civil rights?

I've said it for years now. They are all lunatics.

If they could just start accepting themselves for who they are and get over their homophobia, that would calm a lot of these wackos down and maybe we could get some real work done.

Paging Dr. Sigmund Freud!!!

They are so bound up inside that it's inevitable that reality is going to seep out sooner or later. They are so into repression of human nature. I kind of feel sorry for them.

I just like the idea of George Bush sitting in the Oval Office with Cheney & Rove redfaced and screaming, "What the FUCK?! How did you bozos get us in bed with this guy?"
