Evangelical leader quits, denies male escort's allegations
(CNN) -- The president of the National Association of Evangelicals resigned Thursday after denying an accusation by a male prostitute that the pastor paid him for sex over three years.
The Rev. Ted Haggard said he is also temporarily stepping aside from the pulpit of his church in Colorado Springs, Colorado, pending an internal investigation by the church.
The National Association of Evangelicals is an umbrella group for more than 45,000 churches and some 30 million members across the country.
BTW, I think there's nothing wrong with being gay. The guy should be man enough to admit it and come to terms with it. And perhaps help others who are struggling with self-acceptance.
In my view, a morally righteous person is one who lives life with compassion and caring rather than going around denouncing others.
