WILL THE CHRISTIAN RIGHT RE-EVALUATE THEIR POSITION ON HOMOSEXUALITY?
I just heard an honest assessment of the end result of the Mark Foley and Ted Haggard scandal by Esther Kaplan, author of With God On Their Side and who writes for The Nation, The American Prospect and other publications. When asked by Keith Olbermann what the result of all the Foley-Haggard scandals would be, she replied that she would think that this would cause the Christian right to reflect on whether it is wrong on homosexuality and of it being a moral decision on the part of individuals.
She said she thought it was possible that they would conclude that, "Ted Haggard would choose not to be gay if he could."
