Pat Robertson's group embroiled in huge gay scandal

The chickens have come home to roost for the extreme homophobe Pat Robertson. After years of verbally bashing the gay community, including helping the late Jerry Falwell blame us for 9/11, Robertson's legal group (the American Center for Law and Justice) is now embroiled in a HUGE gay scandal.

According to the Advocate magazine:

A senior attorney has been fired from the conservative American Center for Law and Justice for reportedly having multiple relationships with younger men.

Metro Weekly reports that James Henderson was fired September 25, one day after two blogs, Exposed Politics and The Patriot-Ombudsman, posted reports that Henderson may be gay. The reports showed that Henderson created a Facebook account solely to communicate with at least two men he was involved with.

While it is unclear whether the men are at the age of consent or old enough to consume alcohol, it appears that Henderson provided them with alcohol and marijuana. One of the reports alleges that one of the men was 17 when he began communicating with Henderson in 2010.

Henderson is married with eight children.

The American Center for Law and Justice was founded in 1990 by Pat Robertson as a counter to the American Civil Liberties Union. Representatives of the organization confirmed to Metro Weekly that Henderson had been fired but would not make any further comments. His attorney, Christopher Zampogna, told Metro Weekly that he would not comment on Henderson's termination, but also confirmed that he was fired.

Henderson previously taught undergraduate religious studies at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va., also founded by Pat Robertson.

Comment away, folks.

I have always said that the most virulent anti-gay people out there are just self-hating closet cases...

Bwahahahaha! Believe it or not this has happened BEFORE to poor ole' Pat...I believe a publicist turned out to be gay and (good for him, though he did lose his job) unapologetically so!

I don't like calling this a "gay scandal." Yes, it is a scandal, and it involves same-sex sex, but the man does not identify as "gay." What this man did and does is below the behavior of a self-respecting gay person. I don't know what to call it, but please do not call it "gay."

I honestly think that in some darkened corners of reality some men get an extra kick out of betrayl (of everyone/anyone), nauthylike mischiefmaking and damned twisted, read kinky, double twinking! Sad creepy devil, he's no doubt making shit up or on the run from the person that he has become.

So sad that that poor man had to hide himself for all those years. I hope that he's able to embrace himself and find some peace.

You know, it's not been too long since the word "quisling" was well known.
