Pastor Ted: The Verdict Is In

According to the New York Times, the overseer board, made up clergy from various churches, has issued a statement on evangelist Ted Haggard's indiscretions with a male prostitute:

''Our investigation and Pastor Haggard's public statements have proven without a doubt that he has committed sexually immoral conduct."

In a statement read to members of his New Life Church Sunday, Haggard confirmed his guilt, writing, ''The fact is I am guilty of sexual immorality."

Here's RSR's verdict: Haggard's real crime isn't sexually immoral conduct. It's the form of immoral conduct normally referred to as hypocrisy. Believing and doing one thing, while saying another.

In our view, that verdict could be rendered against many on the religious right, in its political apparatus, the Republican Party, and the media.
