    Your Personal Lord And Savior or Your Personal Escort?
    Tough call.

    Any evidence beside the male escort blabbing to the press?

    FB,
    If .... IF ... this report turns out to be false, will you be willing to start a new thread on it and make sure it gets just as much play as this thread?
    Or will this be typical of many media reports in which the accusation makes big headlines but the correction, apology, dropped charges, etc., gets a page 2 blurb?
    Nothing wrong with you starting a thread on this. It's news and we ought to be know about it, but let's all be careful not to lynch this guy before we know the truth.
    There's a chance he's the victim here, not the hypocritical liar and cheater you might want him to be to support your own one-dimensional views.

  6. Did Al Gore invent the Internet? Did he say he did?

    Can anyone imagine their own news organization running this story without something in the way of corroboration? Could be WAY more religious programming on this station if they got played.

    It seems pretty irresponsible running this story without corroboration. Maybe they're trying to add a cycle or two to the story by waiting for the denial before hauling out some photos.

    Apparantly, there are voicemails between the hooker and the hookee. And Mr. Haggard has taken a temporary leave from his man of God duties.

    Well, I'm sure glad I don't share these guys' "family values".
