Two Ted Haggard stories? In one day?

New Life Church in Colorado Springs have stopped Ted Haggard's plan to move into a faith-based halfway house in Phoenix and minister to those who live there.
Teddy was going to begin counseling residents of the Dream Center halfway house in Phoenix this October. But they won't let him now.
Haggard also asked for donations in the e-mail to help support his family while he and his wife Gayle finish their degrees.
But his plans were "unacceptable" to New Life Church overseer Mike Ware.
"Mr. Haggard's solicitation for personal support was inappropriate. It was never the intention of the Dream Center that Mr. Haggard would provide any counsel or other ministry."

Ware also writes in Wednesday's media release that Haggard will not be moving to or working with the Dream Center. In fact, the last sentence of the release reads, "He will be seeking secular employment to support himself and family." The release did not say if Haggard was punished in any way for making the inappropriate comments in his email.

But that's not all!

He's Trouble, with a capital T which rhymes with C which stands for Creep:
Haggard made an appeal for financial help last week in Colorado, suggesting that donations for his family be made to Families With a Mission, a nonprofit group run by Paul Gerard Huberty.
That's Huberty which rhymes with Puberty which...never mind.
Huberty, 50, is listed on the sex offender registry of the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center, which shows that he moved this year to Monument [from Hawaii].
Among other things, "Huberty was convicted of second-degree attempted sexual assault, a felony, in Kona Circuit Court on Jan. 8, 2004. He was sentenced to one year in prison, with six months suspended, and five years' probation."

And always remember, Haggard's not gay and never has been. And thank you all for coming out tonight.
