In the USA, the “Reverend” religious fundamentalist Ted Haggard is a key Republican supporter.
Without him (and without electoral fraud) George W Bush would not be in the White House now.
Gay bashing is a trademark of Haggard’s extremist religious politics.
At first, Haggard was in denial on this, though he admitted he was on drugs.
Now, Haggard has admitted “I am a deceiver and a liar”. His church has dismissed him.
It is to be hoped that Haggard’s pal, George W Bush, will very soon admit “I am a deceiver and a liar” on the Iraq war and so many other subjects.
From the Huffington Post:
Let’s face it: the Bush administration is sick. The fall of Ted Haggard is just the latest manifestation of the central disease of President Bush and his cohorts: the pathological refusal to accept reality, and the delusion that reality can be changed by rhetoric.
