Ted Haggard: Fallen Man

Snapshots In My Time...
Of My Time.....Hauntings.

Ted Haggard is fooling himself! Ted Haggard is trying hide behind the fact that he is gay. Just admit it! If you are gay it is fine, but just admit it. You are ruined anyway now! Now when he says he just bought the meth but never used it, who does he sound like to you? Sounds just like the man who said, I smoked mary-j but I never inhaled! Please! Now when he says he called the escort for a massage, what does that sound like? It sounds like the man who said, "I never had sex with that woman," meaning Monica Lewinsky! Please. Give it up Ted. Come clean, especially for the wife who has been exposed now to aids and so have those kids. Sad!


Evangelist Ted Haggard admitted Friday that he bought methamphetamine and received a massage from a gay prostitute who claims he was paid for drug-fueled trysts by the outspoken gay marriage opponent.

Haggard resigned Thursday as president of the National Association of Evangelicals and stepped down as leader of his Colorado megachurch while the two groups investigate the allegations.

Talking to reporters outside his house Friday, Haggard denied the sex allegations but said that he did buy meth from the man because he was curious.

"I bought it for myself but never used it," he said. "I was tempted, but I never used it."

Haggard, a married father of five, said he never had sex with Mike Jones, a 49-year-old male prostitute who sparked the scandal when he told a radio station he had had a three-year sexual relationship with the minister. He said he did get a massage from Jones after being referred to him by a Denver hotel.

Haggard resigned as president of the 30 million-member association Thursday and stepped down as the leader of the New Life Church pending investigations into Jones' claims.

The executive committee of the National Association of Evangelicals, which claims 30 million members, planned a conference call Friday and said it would release a statement afterward.

The acting pastor of Haggard's New Life Church, Ross Parsley, told congregants in an e-mail that the church's four-member board of overseers had met with Haggard on Thursday.

"It is important for you to know that he confessed to the overseers that some of the accusations against him are true. He has willingly and humbly submitted to the authority of the board of overseers, and will remain on administrative leave during the course of the investigation," the e-mail stated.
