Okay. That a cheap shot. Sorry.
The leader of the 30 million-member National Association of Evangelicals, a vocal opponent of same-sex marriage, resigned Thursday after being accused of paying for sex with a man in monthly trysts over the past three years.
The part of the story that got me, and motivated me to write this rant, was the very last paragraph:
“This is really routine when any sort of situation like this arises, so we’re prepared,” Carolyn Haggard said. “The church is going to continue to serve and be welcoming to our community. That’s a priority.”
“We’re prepared.” Wow. They’re prepared to have someone lob allegations that he paid their leader to have sex with him? Wow. I mean, I know that’s probably not a big deal, but it makes me think there was a Church meeting and they all sat around thinking up worst case scenarios.
“Okay, Bob, what if…. let’s just say, I mean, hypothetically… I accuse you of paying me for sex. What do we do?”
I know I know. Cheap shot. But still. This election season is just plain weird.
