"It wasn't at all a settlement to make him be quiet or not tell his story," Boyd said. "Our desire was to help him. Here was a young man who wanted to get on with his life. We considered it more compassionate assistance — certainly not hush money. I know what's what everyone will want to say because that's the most salacious thing to say, but that's not at all what it was."
He said that "secondarily, it's not great for our church either" that the story be told. Boyd said Haggard knew about the settlement two years ago.
Oh honey, it sure as shit was hush money, no matter how delusional you wish to be about it.
The other great "aren't you even a little afraid there's a hell" moment comes from this article, "The Only Moral Abortion is My Abortion" by Joyce Arthur.
The sky, it's full of glorious fail and hypocrisy. Remember folks, just like George C. said, no one can touch religion when it comes to bullshit. They've forgotten more about it than we'll ever know.
