Ted Haggard Quits New Life 'Restoration Team'

Ted Haggard Quits New Life 'Restoration Team'

Technically, it only took three weeks of intensive "restoration" a full year ago to make Ted Haggard a "complete heterosexual." But on Tuesday night, the new pastor of the Colorado Springs megachurch that Haggard founded has announced that Haggard is quitting the team - and that "the process of restoring Ted Haggard is incomplete."

The latest twist in the Haggard drama comes via a vaguely-worded letter send Tuesday to friends of New Life Church by its new pastor, Brady Boyd. In the letter, Boyd indicates that Haggard - the charismatic evangelical leader who was fired by his church in early November, 2006 in a shocking gay sex and meth scandal involving male escort Mike Jones - is moving on.
