This is your brain on dispensationalism #5

4 11 2006

The week in fundie:

*Irony can be a bitch: having, along with many other evangelical leaders, prostituted himself to the Republican Party for years, National Association of Evangelicals president (and rampant homophobe) Ted Haggard finds himself at the centre of a gay sex and meth scandal involving a male prostitute in Denver. (TIME)

*Homophobia: bringing Jews, Muslims and Christians together for two millenia. (TIME)

*Hilaly is the theory and Saudi Arabia is the practice. (Via Dispatches from the Culture Wars)

UPDATE: Bugger the closet-homosexuality allegations–the real question is: does Ted Haggard eat figs?

UPDATE II: President Bush claims only to have spoken with Haggard a couple of times, Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell play down his influence among evangelicals, and now his own church has sacked him. That’s thrice he’s been disowned!
