Bizarre Video: Rev. Haggard (now disgraced) confronts Richard Dawkins (atheist) at his church

On the one hand, I have taught religion for over 30 years. Each year the subject seems to get more bizarre.

On the other hand, after Shabbetai Zvi converted to Islam, his followers created a theology to explain and defend his actions.

So, I'm wondering if the Rev. Haggard's followers, now that he has been forced to admit to scandalous behavior, will start talking about how he was just doing research or that perhaps he was engaged in some mystical religious activities. Now that is not beyond the realm of possibility, given the lessons of the history of religions.

Here is the video clip of Haggard v. Dawkins.
