    Rev. Ted Haggard, disgraced leader of the National Association of Evangelicals will undergo "restorative therapy" to change his sexual orientation. To muddy this soup even more, it will be conducted by James Dobson and a pastor in Van Nuys, CA and one in Phoenix, Az.

    Whatever you may think of Ted Haggard, please pray he doesn't end up more messed up than he already is. He should just find a Jewish psychiatrist.

    One of my flatmates studies medicine. The other day she told me, to my surprise, that the hospital she works in has the largest "gender reassignment" unit in Europe (this came up because she was doing my nails at the time). Furthermore, people who have sex changes there do so with NHS funding, because the operation corrects an essential "developmental psychological problem".

    If he fancies men, why doesn't Rev. Haggard just become a medical woman for free rather than mess with a psycho Jesusfascist like James Dobson? I know that being a homosexual man and being a woman are completely different things, and he may have no desire to be a woman, but God only cares about homosexual acts, not feelings, and Haggard would probably be less messed up as a gay man in a straight woman's body than as a victim of evangelical 'psychology'.

    Get me the man's email address, I'll see what I can do 😛.

    Your post intrigues me more about your nails than anything else. I must confess that I didn't quite understand your Ivory Tower thread, but I'm starting to worry about you now.

    I know there are men trapped in a woman's body and vice versa, but I'm thinking he's just gay.

    That's the point. He's just gay, but God only hates gays when they get topological with it, AFAIK. If he got worked on by Dobson, he could end up in trouble (who knows, God might end up hating them later). However, if he got a sex change, he could get topological with any men he wanted without having God hate him, and the only trade-off would be the huge psychological issues that come from being misgendered. Those wouldn't be as bad as being a Dobson victim, though.

    EDIT My nails are alternating black and pink and very sexy indeed.

    Sexuality restorative therapy didn't work for Turing and it won't work for Haggard.

    Nothing the non-God-botherers like more than a big, fat, juicy hypocrite, huh? I'm surprised at Dawkins' restraint over this whole thing, actually. Or, perhaps he's merely working out his exact treatment for the whole mess.

    I looked at royalchicken’s Ivory Tower thread. I’m going to wait for his forthcoming opus: Tractatus Theologico-Mathematicus. Clearly the post-postmodern theological scene has passed me by...

    “Gender reassignment”!!??!! Myra Breckinridge turns over in her grave...

    He's got a lot better things to do than thumb his nose at a confused homosexual evangelical. Maybe Dawkins isn't such a bad guy after all.

    I don't consider RD a 'bad guy,' but seeing the venom spewing from the majority of non-God-botherers and/or those indicted by their own consciences, people just love a train wreck... especially when the train considers itself 'set apart,' and seems bent on telling others to stay on track.

    It was the one halting problem Turing didn't solve.

    Ironic that--- to combat overt homosexual acts--- they injected him with estrogen! It's nice to know that following such blatant discrimination which resulted in unknown loss of his genius, Turing was able to rebound and enjoy artistic success by founding the 80's band Morphogenesis.
