Another Haggard

Reality strikes again:

The founding pastor of the 2,100-member Grace Chapel has resigned after he said he had sexual relations with other men. Paul Barnes, who led the church for 28 years, told his congregation Sunday in a videotaped message that church leaders allowed The Denver Post to view. He and his wife have two adult daughters ...

"I have struggled with homosexuality since I was a 5-year-old boy," Barnes, 54, said in the videotaped message. "... I can’t tell you the number of nights I have cried myself to sleep, begging God to take this away."

Pray for him - and that the church will eventually realize the insanity of its insistence that homosexuality is a "choice".
