Haggard history!

 Well, live by the sword; die by the sword. Spot will admit to a little guilty pleasure at the thought of Reverend Ted standing in the dock in front of a bunch of parishioners that he has so carefully nurtured into the bigots they are today.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- The Rev. Ted Haggard agreed to resign as leader of the New Life Church after its independent investigative board recommended removal, saying he was guilty "of sexually immoral conduct."

"We, the Overseer Board of New Life Church, have concluded our deliberations concerning the moral failings of Pastor Ted Haggard," a statement from the church said. "Our investigation and Pastor Haggard's public statements have proven without a doubt that he has committed sexually immoral conduct."

A man describing himself as an escort told news media this week that Haggard, who also has resigned as president of the influential National Asssociation [sic, or maybe not] of Evangelicals, had been paying him for sex for three years.
