But all the kids at school are doing it!

The Haggard School of Hypocrisy, that is.

This week's hypocrite is Pastor Paul Barnes of Englewood, Colorado. Pastor Paul, come on down! (Or out, whatever the case may be.) Barnes resigned last week after being questioned about a call the church received.

Yesterday on video, the evangelical pastor admitted to his flock that he'd had sex with other men (a/k/a "he was gay"): "I have struggled with homosexuality since I was a 5-year-old boy... I can't tell you the number of nights I have cried myself to sleep, begging god to take this away."

If anyone needs any more proof that being gay is not a choice... well, just wait, I'm sure there's more where this came from.
