Ted’s “ministry” was never about god, it was about Ted’s ego. At least Jim Bakker stays out of the limelight.

I suppose the picture is to show how well things are going for the family. Still, they had to have known the field day most people would have with those pictures.

Notice how two of his sons are not looking at the camera? If there is a Purgatory (reference CS Lewis, not Roman doctrine), I think those children have been through it.

I had actually already seen this in GQ, and despite the awkward photo, the article is excellent.
Ultimately, the article makes me want to believe that Ted Haggard is a good person. Having seen and heard all manner of things regarding his indiscretions, it’s nice to see him practicing some genuineness, and I would hope to see more things in this vein, and less sensationalism regarding him (and really anyone in this sort of position).

Not I’m wishing for a time machine to transport me back 3 minutes before I saw this post. This guy just needs to go away for awhile. If it’s really about redemption and grace, why agree to do something like this and do a TLC show?
