No matter what the catchy little ditty we posted months ago says, Ted Haggard is finding the road to straightdom a little bumpy apparently. What was in my inbox this morning? A quick note from my friend Joe about his post "Haggard Quits Re-Straightifying Program."
Poor Ted. He just can't catch a break can he? He quits straight-rehab and his old church lets the country know as if he's a sex offender. (Well, have you seen the guy that outed him? Mike Jones? Sex and meth with Mike? Maybe it is an offense - to bad taste. But, hey, when you're in the closet as far as Ted, you'd sleep with a blind dwarf with a hairlip as long as he kept it quiet...) Seriously. New Life church put out a press release to tell us he'd quit.
Sad, isn't it? Go read the release and Joe's quip at the end. I'll ask his question over here too - "Should we be alarmed by the prospect of Haggard finally coming out, however unlikely? Would you welcome him to the family?"
