Re: “Pastor Ted back on stage

@Ellen - I appreciate from where your sentiment comes, but anytime you discuss the "need" to "dismantle" a legal group, it sounds kind of scary. It also only serves to make them stronger, as they feel there are outside forces seeking their destruction. I think better phrasing could be used. David Shankbone http://shankbone.org

Re: “Pastor Ted back on stage

And here the rest of the country thought everyone in the Springs was ecstatic to have these people come. Many gays flee their homosexuality precisely because of the people at New Life Church and their beliefs. Go figure one ends up being their leader. Many gays also go into the army, the priesthood, Republican party politics, missionary work or acting all in attempt to hide from who they are. It's a shame how the politics of the evangelicals create victims out of everyone, including themselves. There they are, sitting with egg on their face, as the product of their own hate and intolerance led them down this road. What a shame - for everyone. As a gay man, I take no glee or joy in watching this happen to that community and to Mr. Haggard. I find it a tragedy. A tragedy that apparently few will learn from. David Shankbone
