Well praise the Sweet Name of Jesus!

After watching that eye bleeding video montage, I think it's pretty clear that the greatest sin the Fabulously Reverend Ted Haggard has committed is giving that egregious asshole Olbermann the opportunity to surpass himself in smugness.

He is now officially the smuggest smug that ever smugged.

Glory!

On the same token, Jesus "over-died" for our sins and God "over-forgave" sinners. Geez, so much excesses. :o
No wonder Wall Street "over-gorged" themselves into a financial crisis. >:(

So what is it with a guy like Ted Haggard?  Pure cynicism? Mental delusions? I ask my shrink this question about hypocrites in my daily life I have to deal with.  She says its part of human nature but some people go too far.  Can there be any redemption for a hater and hypocrite like Haggard?  I guess, but I think not if we risk more bullshit.

Some people take their personal delusions and self importance very very far.  Caught out, maybe we get a "sincere" apology but it floats on an entire being that's full of crap - no basic integrity. Is it narcissistic personality disorder? Wall Street entitlement and profiteering, for example.

Ted Haggard and his claim that "Ted Haggard should be a church leader" claim?  People who go too far should be limited in their power over others.  But not enough of us want to call a spade a spade.  Is this because we have to forgive and overlook and deal with the little hypocrisies and selfish acts in our daily lives - we loose perspective?  Nobody wants a society built on sanctimony and repressive "morality" but it seems we are eroding into more and more "me first" and "I deserve it" and "I don't give a fuck about others" society.

I don't understand why Elizabeth Warren isn't immediately appointed head of the Protection Agency - but it seems because she is too tough and transparent and fair, and the "me first" mobs have the power to stop her. 

Why is Ted Haggard being invited on talk shows and given the time of day, as if he is a rational person who should have influence over others? He's a black hole.   

Why was the John Birch Society resuscitated by the Republican National Committee as a legitimate voice?  And on and on, and on.

Well said mecch.  :-*

When a flash clip in the montage showed Haggard clasping the hands of Oprah and laughed, I cringed. :o Hypocrites are very dangerous creatures. They are capable of many vile things. The thing that rattles me most is not the hypocrites, they exist - but those who embrace them, believe & encourage their s.h.i.t. That is the ever mind bloggling thing.
Over the years, I've come to conclude empirically that those who embrace hypocrisy are themselves much bigger hypocrites. They feed off each other like parasites. Those whom are transparent and shoot from the hip can see through fake acts in an instant but are shot down first cos these hypocrites dun like being brought out from their black holes. Hypocrites are like vampires (aka Fake Blood :D ), they can only survive in the dark ! >:(

Given how all these PTL and fundie churches work, get ready for the 2nd Cumming of Ted Haggard. Who needs Westboro Phelps when Haggard runs the extra mile for all these losers.
