  1. So, how did they swap?

  2. And gay marriage – not Wife Swap, not The Bachelor, not The Bachelorette, not Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire, etc, etc – yes, GAY marriage, is what is destroying the institution.

    So wait, did Ted Haggard swap his wife for Gary Busey, is that what I’m reading? The ‘self-described church’ snark is throwing me off.
