Setting Things Up For A New Scam

well known for his enormous bible

Disgraced pastor is freed of gay urges, wife says - Ted Haggard’s wife says counseling has cured him of his "compulsions"

"It has been more than three years since charismatic pastor Ted Haggard left his megachurch in disgrace, mired in a scandal involving drug use and a male prostitute. But the woman who stood by him says now that the experience has brought them closer together than ever.
“Our relationship is better than it’s ever been. Going over this mountain together has given me the marriage that I’ve always longed for,” Gayle Haggard told TODAY’s Meredith Vieira Wednesday in New York."
"In 2006, the Haggards were an evangelical version of the American Dream. They had met as students at Oral Roberts University, fallen in love and gotten married. As they were starting their family of five children, they also started a church that first met in their Colorado Springs home.
With Gayle directing the women’s ministries and Ted driving the growth of the congregation, the New Life Church grew to a 14,000-member congregation, and Ted became the president of the National Association of Evangelicals. His counsel was sought by President George W. Bush.
And then, in November of that year, it all came crashing down. A homosexual prostitute, Mike Jones, angry at Haggard’s opposition to same-sex marriage, alleged that Haggard had been a client for several years and had also purchased methamphetamines from him."

These are self serving scum who from the very start of their predatory career wanted fame and fortune from their shameless church ventures. The most important thing for them when his cock and drug fetishes got press was how to manage the public relations and plan a comeback.
It's a great hustle, this jeebus fraud, preying on fearful, simple minded and trusting people, telling them what they want to hear and raking in the dough. If you're living high on the hog with your "ministry" and happen to get busted for wild sex/banned substances/money fraud, no need to worry. Forgiveness is easy enough to come by, it just takes a little time and effort because come on, wasn't Jeebus all about forgiveness? Even Jim Bakker, with rape allegations and convictions for fraud and years of prison time, rose from the dead to get a new TV ministry. All it takes for these parasites is to pour their hearts out about spiritual transformation and new beginnings and forgiveness and they're back in business.
Oh yes, and they write books. A lot of books.

...well, the money's good
