Former New Life Church pastor Ted Haggard, who resigned in disgrace after a dubious relationship with a meth-dealing gay hooker, is at it again. This time, he’s begging for money to keep him and the family in bacon and beans while he “ministers” to the downtrodden and attends college in Phoenix.
According to the Gazette, Haggard has been paid $338,000 since the beginning of 2006 and owns a home in Bibleburg valued at more than $700,000, but still finds himself a tad light in the wallet pocket (in addition to the loafers). In an e-mail posted on a local TV station’s Web site, the grounded sky pilot wrote:
“It looks as though it will take two years for us to have adequate earning power again, so we are looking for people who will help us monthly for two years. During that time we will continue as full-time students, and then, when I graduate, we won’t need outside support any longer.”
Uh huh. Right. This two-bit Elmer Gantry will be proffering the old collection plate as long as he has the strength to lift it. The sad thing is, the simps will keep filling it. I’ll give Ted a little something — the same advice my dad gave me. You want money? Get a fuckin’ job.by
