Ted Haggard, president of the National Association of Evangelicals, has stepped down over gay-sex accusations.
Got this via Internet Infidels, full scoop from various links there, including the Denver Post.
Probably, this is for real. The ex-prostitute making the claims says he has a voice recording, and he has to know that if you fake something like that it comes out eventually. And if it is true? One, the guy is either a disgusting fraud (if he doesn't believe what he's been saying about homosexuals) or a pitiable victim if him self (if he does believe it).
Question: Should this be regarded as a bigger scandal than some of the stuff in the 1980's? To what extent does the NAE deserve to be regarded as the face of conservative Christianity in the 21st century?
UPDATE: Daniel Morgan posts that the allegations against Haggard have been substantiated.
