Falwell colleague dies getting his autoerotic rubber kink on

Throw another religious conservative sexual hypocrite log onto the fire. This one comes to us from Montgomery, Alabama. Let's start out with the straight take on matters.

Reverend Gary Aldridge was found dead in his home in east Montgomery. He was the senior pastor at Thorington Road Baptist Church for the last 15 years.

Gary Aldridge graduated from Liberty University and later worked for the late Jerry Falwell. A former colleague at the school remembered him as well.

“He went on to become one of the deans and the students loved him. He had a tremendous impact on them,” said Dr. Bob Miller of Liberty University.

I guess his friends are going to have a hard time explaining what was going on in Aldridge's mind at the time he went to meet his maker.  The Smoking Gun:

An Alabama minister who died in June of “accidental mechanical asphyxia” was found hogtied and wearing two complete wet suits, including a face mask, diving gloves and slippers, rubberized underwear, and a head mask, according to an autopsy report.

Investigators determined that Rev. Gary Aldridge's death was not caused by foul play and that the 51-year-old pastor of Montgomery's Thorington Road Baptist Church was alone in his home at the time he died (while apparently in the midst of some autoerotic undertaking). While the Montgomery Advertiser, which first obtained the autopsy records, reported on Aldridge's two wet suits, the family newspaper chose not to mention what police discovered inside the minister's rubber briefs.

Oh my. It gets better. Blogenfreude notes that Aldridge also had a condom-covered dildo up his bum:

OK #1: Where did he get the dildo — after all it's illegal to sell them in Alabama. .
#2: The Peter needs to start an investigation on this pronto.

Conservative sexual hypocrites — the gift that keeps on giving.

UPDATE: Check out the church web site. Denial is in the air:

As our leadership sorts through this difficult time, our church asks the media and community to be respectful to the facts of the event.  At this point, there is very little information.  Please refrain from speculation until the authorities handling the case reveal the facts.

Uh, there’s plenty of information out there now. Any comments, flock?

Hat tip, Cliff.
