Good intentions??? Please, please, please don't try to use the "I was out trying to save souls" defense. That would only be an insult to all of the racist, homophobic comments that you are so well known for.
You have been "outted". You will not be remembered by these actions but by your reaction to being caught. Quit trying to "save face" and just come clean. You will be respected so much more.
