Ted Haggard's Church: Ex-Gay Brainwashing Didn't Take

Really, what a bunch of maroons if they think you can pray away the gay. I mean, this guy was one of their holiest ministers, so if he can't pray it away, who can? (no one of course!!)

COLORADO SPRINGS -- More than a year after then-pastor Ted Haggard resigned from his position at the New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Haggard has severed his official relationship with the New Life Church Restoration Team.
Haggard was the church's senior founding pastor.
In November 2006, he resigned from his church leadership position and from his position as head of the National Association of Evangelicals amid allegations he had an affair with a male prostitute.
"New Life Church recognizes the process of restoring Ted Haggard is incomplete and maintains its original stance that he should not return to vocational ministry. However, we wish him and his family only success in the future."
