Consistent

You know when you're having an arguement and you find yourself saying something that is logically correct but rhetorically brain dead? I just saw a great example of this on CNN about the Pastor Ted scandal.

Ted Haggard's accuser, Mike Jones, has said he came forth about his affair with the evangelical minister because of Pastor Ted's campaign for Colorado's same-sex marriage ban. When an associate pastor at Haggard's New Life Church asked if Ted's support of the amendment constituted hyprocrisy he replied "To my knowledge, Mike Jones has not alleged that Ted asked him to marry him."

Good point, preacher. Unless Pastor Ted actually proposed marriage during his meth-fueled gay romps with Mike Jones it would be unfair to state that he's contradicted his position on gay marriage. You win this round.

I can't wait to see the "Just Don't Do Meth" campaigned aimed at discouraging the clergy...
