overheard: a plea for the revitalization of evangelical ethics*
reporter: andy, anyone who follows you and knows you realizes that you are a man of faith. can you talk about how your faith influenced your decision to use HGH and maybe how your faith has sustained you during this hard time?
pettitte: i felt like it was the right thing to do in my heart. that might be hard for some to understand...as far as my faith, i felt good about it when i started. but then i felt bad once i started it...as far as how my faith has sustained me through all this, i know in my heart why i did things. i've tried to live my life in a certain way and i know i'll have to stand before God some day.
reporter: andy, can you tell us how you felt using it a second time? you've explained how bad it made you feel the first time, so why did you take it a second?
pettitte: i felt stupid, and desperate.
