On the videotape, which The Post was allowed to view, Barnes told church members: "I have struggled with homosexuality since I was a 5-year-old boy

2nd Pastor Resigns Over Gay Sex Scandal



From Associated Press
December 11, 2006 2:51 PM EST



ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - The founding pastor of a second Colorado church has resigned over gay sex allegations, just weeks after the evangelical community was shaken by the scandal surrounding megachurch leader Ted Haggard.

Haggard, a gay-marriage opponent, admitted to unspecified "sexual immorality" when he resigned last month as president of the National Association of Evangelicals and pastor of the 14,000-member New Life Church in Colorado Springs. A male prostitute had said he had had sex with Haggard for three years.

On Sunday, Paul Barnes, founding pastor of the 2,100-member Grace Chapel in this Denver suburb, told his evangelical congregation in a videotaped message he had had sexual relations with other men and was stepping down.

Dave Palmer, associate pastor of Grace Chapel, told The Denver Post that Barnes confessed to him after the church received a call last week.

The church board of elders accepted Barnes' resignation on Thursday.

On the videotape, which The Post was allowed to view, Barnes told church members: "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."

Barnes, 54, led Grace Chapel for 28 years. He and his wife have two adult children.

Palmer said in a written statement that "While we cannot condone what he has done, we continue to support and love Paul."

I've made my own emancipated way in this world since I was fourteen. Perhaps that's what generates my rage over anyone or any organization that presumes to dictate to someone else what he or she should think or feel or that presumes to instruct me or anyone else what is or is not moral or immoral.

Pastor Barnes and his sanctimonious compatriots in society are a boil on my butt as they go about our world as sinless do-gooders casting first stones in every direction, all the while wallowing in their own pornographic mentalities.

I think it's time we create a new department in our government charged with the task of publicly lancing these pus-oozers.

Now, I feel soooo much better!

Sort of gives new meaning to the phrase "those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw rocks" doesn't it.
