Those Colorado Closets Keep Opening

What’s going on in Colorado? The New York Times reports another conservative pastor has resigned from his church (this one with “only” 2,000 members, not the 14,000 of Ted Haggard’s former church) because he’s been having gay sex while in an opposite-sex marriage and, surely, preaching against same-sex marriage and the dangers of the “homosexual agenda.”

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Just weeks after the senior pastor at a huge Colorado church was fired over gay sex allegations, the founding pastor of another church in the state is quitting for similar reasons.

This time it’s Paul Barnes, whose suburban Denver congregation saw a videotaped message yesterday. On it, Barnes acknowledges having gay sex, saying he’s “struggled with homosexuality” since age five, and has been “begging God” for help.

Paul, it’s OK to be gay. Love yourself as you are.

And once again I have much empathy for his family and for his struggle.
