How bizarre is this?
Two days ago I post on Jesus Camp and Becky Fisher closing down her Kids on Fire Camp in Devils Lake, North Dakota. In that post I mention and quote Ted Haggard.
Then today, I read that Ted Haggard, leader of the National Association of Evangelicals and pastor of the 14,000 member New Life Church in Colorado Springs, has stepped down as leader and pastor of these two organizations.
Is it because of Jesus Camp?
No, much worse. Ted Haggard has been accused on KHOW radio, in Denver, of regularly paying a man by the name of Mike Jones, 49, for gay sex.
Haggard is claiming that he has remained faithful to his wife, but is stepping down to cause minimal damage to his church and the National Association of Evangelicals.
