Jeanne Assam, a member of the New Life Church in Colorado Springs, was working as a volunteer security guard in December of 2007 when a disturbed man started firing into the crowd outside the Church. He killed two churchgoers and wounded two others before Assam got to him and shot him and took him down, at which time he killed himself.
Assam was praised as a hero and appeared with the church leaders in dozens of media appearances. Well, it turns out Jeannie Assam is gay. When she told church authorities this, she was told she was no longer welcome.
This is the same church that was led by Ted Haggard, who was outed by a male prostitute in 2006 and sent to a “counciling” session in the desert with four ministers, after which one of the ministers proclaimed him “completely heterosexual.”
Some of the comments after the article are priceless.
