Making all Christians look bad

The pastor of the New Life Church in Colorado has resigned amidst a sex scandal.

The Rev. Ted Haggard agreed to resign as leader of the New Life Church after its independent investigative board recommended removal, saying he was guilty "of sexually immoral conduct."


A man describing himself as an escort told news media this week that Haggard, who also has resigned as president of the influential National Association of Evangelicals, had been paying him for sex for three years.

No wonder Christianity in general (and Christians in particular) has a hard time putting forth a credible witness. Our supposed 'leaders' seem best at leading us into stealing, cheating, and lying! I wonder what his poor wife must think, finding out that her husband has been paying a homosexual escort for sex.
