Pastor "Twitch" Haggard's followers take another swig of Kool-Aid

Well, Haggard's board of directors acted to protect the "New Life" brand. They don't say exactly what was immoral about what Haggard did, but whatever, it's bad, bad, bad:

Hey, Look Who's Joining Our Wal-Mart Boycott!

So it was okay when Wal-Mart screwed its workers, schemed to keep them in neofeudal servitude, dumped anybody with even potential health problems, encouraged anybody with enough seniority to feel a sense of entitlement to quit, etc. But when they extended these benefits to gay workers, and went so far as to encourage actual shopping by gay customers, well, whoa Nelly, now Der Jeebus is upset!
