Ted Haggard to Open Inclusive Church that Discriminates Against Gay Marriage

     "Ex-gay" pastor and former president of the National Association of Evangelicals Ted Haggard, who is best known for his fall from grace in a gay-prostitute-drug scandal, has announced that he's starting a new church.  This time he's doing it right.  The church community will be inclusive and nonjudgmental.

     TPM reports (with my comments interspersed):
     He [Haggard] said that his new church -- St. James Church in Colorado Springs -- will welcome everyone, including those who are "gay, straight, bi, tall, short, whether you're an addict, a recovering addict, or you have an addict in your family."
     Okay.  That sounds good so far. 
     Referring to the scandal as "the crash," Haggard noted that since it happened, "I don't judge people anymore."
     Fantastic.  He's learned, but is this too good to believe? 
     However, he did emphasize that there will be no gay marriages performed in his church, because "God's ideal plan for a marriage is the union of a man and a woman."
     Okay.  There's the Ted Haggard of old.  Once again telling honest gays what his god says they can and cannot do.  A traditional marriage is between one supposedly recovered gay drug addict and one woman.
     Haggard added that it's also "God's ideal that all of us have our weight under control," but that doesn't always happen.
     Does that mean that homo-Haggard is on a gay diet?  We all know how that worked for him before.  It's only a matter of time before he binges again.
