You look a little Haggard; perhaps you should resign?

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 14-8In light of the claims that he has had a three-year sexual relationship with a male escort, Pastor Ted Haggard has resigned from his posts as both president of the National Association of Evangelicals and head of Colorado Springs' New Life Church! He said in a statement:

"I am voluntarily stepping aside from leadership so that the overseer process can be allowed to proceed with integrity. I hope to be able to discuss this matter in more detail at a later date"

No further comment will be made on this matter at this time. Instead, just watch this clip from Jesus Camp:

Mmh-hmm.
