This “problem” in Colorado may really affect the Republican GOTV. This was the last sermon before the election and the buzz was not about the election, but the sins of Pastor Ted.

While most people have never heard of the guy, among the Reich he was a name, and, at a minimum, there had to be prayer circles set up to help him rid himself of “demons”.

I would note that unsolicited suggestions that they dunk him and then burn him at the stake if he floats are not received with Christian charity in the frozen food aisle of the Winn-Dixie. They get really snippy if you suggest calling in a Catholic priest for an exorcism.

If he floats on water he is a witch?

Well….he is obviously a little light in the shoes. Uh… He is just a bit airy fairy…no. He really appreciates a heavenly body…erk! Twinkerbell is his favorite Peter Pan character?

I just can’t put my finger on it….

Not that I’d want to!

Pointing out that dunk/burn is the “conservative” method for dealing with demon possession really doesn’t resonate with the “church ladies”.

What a guy. Any man who’d rather be thought to be buying and using a dangerous street drug than be known to have had sex with a man (well, OK, a male prostitute)… as I say, what a guy. I’ll wager he’s back in the pulpit within a few months, and back in the money as a megachurch evangelist within a year.

Yeah, conservative “Christians” should give him the Ivory Soap test. That way, at the very least, he’d be 99 and 44/100 percent pure when they tied him to the stake…

That was an amazing statement. Possession of a gram or LESS of meth is a felony in Colorado, but he was worried about his sex with a consenting adult.

They’ll accept him back as demonstration of their “forgiving nature” and the “power of faith”, but days of the huge bucks are over. He may start a ministry to “save gays;” he has the hypocrisy for it.

I know some evangelicals who really believe in the message of the New Testament, and they are very nice people worth spending some time with. That may be why I’m so negative about these carnival barkers.

The hooker said they used a condom only once. How will Mrs. Haggard deal with the medical tests she should take right away?

I’d suggest they remove all heavy skillets and pointed objects from her vicinity when she talks to her husband.

Ellroon, she will be extremely nice until her divorce lawyer says otherwise. I know she’s done the Stand By Your Man thing, but Tammy Wynette was married three times and released D-I-V-O-R-C-E the same year.
