You look a little Haggard; perhaps you should resign?
In 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:

"Pastor Ted Haggard has admitted to some of the claims made by a former male escort. The church's Acting Senior Pastor, Ross Parsley, tells KKTV 11 News that Pastor Haggard has admitted to some of the indiscretions claimed by Mike Jones, but not all of them."
"This certainly sounds like the same person," said Sanders, after listening to the voice mails."
