Religion and spirituality in the shadow of Pikes Peak

Bring On the Split Pea Soup!

This just came across my desk via the GetReligion blog -- a site that examines how faith and the media intersect. It involves James Dobson, Colorado Springs' most prominent evangelical, who said during a recent television interview that the Ted Haggard story got everybody all worked up.

“Everybody gets exercised when something like this happens, and for good reason,” Dobson said.

Alas, a reporter at the Rocky Mountain News translated the word "exercised" into "exorcised" -- as in Pastor Ted was in need of one.

The headline in the Rocky said: "Dobson: Haggard not a hypocrite, just in need of exorcism."

Thank goodness I never make any mistakes ...
