Overseers to Haggard: Get a Job, Ya Lazy Prick

Here and here I discussed the latest goings-on in the ever-bizarre saga of disgraced ex-preacher and meth-addled male hooker aficionado Ted Haggard.

Last week the four evangelical pastors assigned to oversee Ted’s spiritual restoration had a little talk with their charge, who’s been begging money from the faithful of late so that he and his lovely wife needn’t worry about living expenses while they’re pursuing counseling degrees. The results of the meeting: Ted’s “solicitation for personal support was inappropriate”; Ted won’t be doing anything resembling ministry for the time being; Ted “will be seeking secular employment to support himself.”

Presumably, the “secular employment” will not be in the fields of methamphetamine sales or gay prostitution, but that is just a presumption.

Story here.
