The president of the U.S. National Association of Evangelicals admitted Friday that he bought methamphetamine and received a massage from a gay prostitute, who claims the outspoken gay marriage opponent paid him for drug-fuelled sex trysts.

The Rev. Ted Haggard resigned as president of the 30-million-member association in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Thursday and stepped down as head of his 14,000-member New Life Church while the two groups investigate the allegations.

"Never said I'm perfect" ... the Reverend Ted Haggard speaks at the World Prayer Centre on the campus of his New Life Church in Colorado Springs. Inset: Mike Jones says he felt a moral obligation to expose a preacher's hypocrisy.


You can also buy Rev. Haggard's diet book, The Jerusalem Diet, to look fit and lean for your next extramarital tryst.
Developed by a busy pastor who loves food and admits to a lack of self-control when it comes to eating [NOTE: and sex and drugs], The Jerusalem Diet is designed to work for anyone who can manage to stay on a diet for just 24 hours. If you want to shed pounds and keep them off-without starvation, deprivation, or frustration-this is the plan you've been waiting for.

How can you not loathe someone putting on such an obviously fake smlie? I watched the brief TV interview in his car, and it was absolutely painful!

Maybe he can attend this conference in Atlanta:

Close to 1,000 people are planning to attend a controversial conference this weekend in Atlanta. Organizers for the event are promising they can turn homosexuals straight.

"I spent thousands of hours on my knees, praying for the Lord to make me straight," said Daniel Gonzales. "And he never did."

After completing the program, he can set up his own lucrative chain of conversion centers for sexual deviants, plus another franchise of Christian drug rehab centers.

I wonder if it's too late to ask Rev. Ted if he'll sign my copy of the The Jerusalem Diet? I just can't believe that a man who writes a book with such delicious felafel recipes could be an adulterer.
