Mike Jones Fails Lie Detector Test on Ted Haggard But Test Administrator Doubts Test's Accuracy


MikemassageMike Jones, the gay escort who claims he had a three-year sexual business relationship with evangelical pastor Ted Haggard, failed to pass a lie detector test administered early this morning, but the test's accuracy is already begin questioned:

"The test administrator, John Kresnik, said Jones' score indicated 'deceptions' in his answers. However, Kresnik said he doubted the accuracy of the test he administered because of the recent stress on Jones and his inability to eat or sleep, according to KHOW producer Greg Hollenback. Kresnik suggested that Jones be re-tested early next week after he was rested."

Here is Good Morning America's coverage (via AmericaBlog) of the Haggard scandal which was run this morning. Jones claims that a fantasy Haggard told him about was "to have sex with about 6 young college guys ranging from 18 to 22 in age."

The shots above are from Mike Jones' "massage" business page.

  1. Just posted by the NYT:
    Christian Leader Admits to Some Accusations

    The Rev. Ted Haggard, the former president of the National Association of Evangelicals and one of the nation’s most influential Christian leaders, admitted today that he had purchased the illegal drug methamphetamine from a gay escort in Denver, but denied that he ever had sex with the man.

    Bitch Pleeeeze. You did crystal, but you didn't suck dick?????

  2. Christians are so pervy. My ex-partner was the head of the Exodus program (ex-gay ministry) at a Church in California for 6 years. He fucked every male that entered the program. He had this real twisted sermon he used on them before each fucking. This entire procedure he had learned from some other church member.

  3. Now the story is he admits to purchasing the meth but not doing it and also to getting a massage from Jones but not any sex.

    This just gets better and better. Rehab is just around the corner. You watch.

  4. OMG, the "reverend" said he was tempted, but he didn't use the meth and he didn't use the penis. I find this very hard to believe. If the "reverend" is so in touch with his christian self, how is it he was tempted by both meth and the penis at the same time. I think Satan must have been sitting on his shoulder, prompting him..."Go on, go on, you know you want take that meth and have a big cock shoved up your ass, just do it." What a crock. The "reverend" is a hypocrit.

  5. Yeah I was an Evangelical Christian once but I fantasized about the boys in the shower or maybe at most a hand job from my best bud.

    I didnt crave hard drugs and seek the services of a prostitute.

    He wasn't simply "tempted".... HE IS A FREAK.

  6. On the CNN interview they just showed, the copy at the bottom of the screen said Pastor Admits to "Meth Message." Oh, please let this phrase enter the popular lexicon.

  7. Mike Jones looks much better with his clothes off.

  9. Imagine what one could do with Haggard's cellphone records -- or Jones' records. Haggard might want to rephrase his "admission", and soon.

  10. I was reared [no pun intended] in a church very similar to Haggard's [the founder of his alma mater, Oral Roberts, once tried unsuccessfully to heal my paralyzed father] and I can tell you that the admitted Meth angle to this is just as shocking to his faithful, if not more, than the alleged homo sex part. Holy Rollers were rabidly antidrug long before homohysteria rose to the top of their agenda. Cigarettes and alcohol alone are traditionally considered sinful. And, however alien they might be to you, learn about how huge and powerful they are at
    http://harpers.org/SoldiersOfChrist-20061103288348488.html including a now all the more fascinating description of what could be called homoerotic art work on display in Haggard's buildings.

    As "redemption" and "salvation" are major tenets, however, if he plays this right, he'll have far more success in salvaging his power than Foley could ever hope to as his followers were secular. Still, and for this I praise Judy, some will drift away because they forever see him as a hypocrite, which is at least as bad in this cult's eyes as sucking cock any day. More important than this likely, relatively insignificant flaking off is that it has turned the antigay evangelical politicos upside down, and will, hopefully, keep them out of balance through 2008.

    BTW: his silver and blue 12,000 member megachurch is directly across the highway from the US Air Force Academy. I'm just sayin'......

  11. Thomas Blackshear's paintings are totally homo, no ifs, ands, or butts. And as Leland points out, these are hanging on Pastor Ted's church walls! What impeccable taste you have, Mr. Haggard.

  12. In case you did not get the gist.. i didnt

    Jones said he decided to go public because he was also upset when he discovered Haggard and the New Life Church had publicly opposed same-sex marriage.

    "It made me angry that here's someone preaching about gay marriage and going behind the scenes having gay sex," he said.

    "I just want people to step back and take a look and say, 'Look, we're all sinners, we all have faults, but if two people want to get married, just let them, and let them have a happy life,'" said Jones, who added that he isn't working for any political group.

  13. So Ted said he bought Meth and then threw it away. Did he buy it and throw it away twice? Or multiple times? Because the voicemails with his voice say "Hey, I was just calling to see if we could get ANY MORE. Either $100 or $200 supply." Journalists interviewing Haggard should be calling him out on his lies and getting to the bottom of this.

    Posted by: GBM | Nov 3, 2006 5:15:16 PM

  14. GBM, you are spot on! But since when did the media ask effective follow-ups?

    And those paintings!!! Good Lord!

    I have to tell you -- and don't take this the wrong way, please -- has made me think about my dad. What would he, the textbook example of a conservative, man's man, state champion football QB, make of walking into a church and being confronted with that art and reverend gayface/cocksucker lip/nelly-voiced Ted Haggard? He would have grabbed us kids up and taken us to the nearest Episcopal church (which is what he actually did LOL).

    Between Haggard and Parsley ("I got sprinkled with Parsley today, mommy"), how can these parishioners be comfortable? Aren't they wondering about a possible (heh heh) BACKstory with these queens? Isn't anybody going to that church with functioning gaydar?

    Hell, when I was 12 years old I met a priest once at my aunt's house and actually told him to "shut up" and ran away from him out of the room. Everyone apologized profusely to the priest and I got a major whipping. About 5 years later he left the priesthood after being busted for feeling up kids. You just KNOW these things sometimes...surely the members of the church, some of them, will have a hindsight revelation...

  15. Yes Jones is a lying whore. The real story is the fact that Haggard is a lying self hating false Christian. Jones by the way says he never did Meth with Haggard, that he does not use drugs at all, yea and he and Barry Bonds got those bodies in the gym. He is the one who should be paying to have sex.

    I am not one to enjoy the suffering of anyone who is in pain, but Haggard is clearly out of the reach of that range. He is either still on drugs or so twisted that he feels nothing.

  16. Hey gang,

    Let's not resort to "judging" this too early. It's a pretty sad story either way. I'll be really pissed if I find out that it's just a political attack. The way to "win" isn't by stooping down to the level of setting somebody up.

    Posted by: Bill Sarasota | Nov 3, 2006 6:19:08 PM

  17. Now that Mr. Haggard has admitted that "some" of the allegations are true, I hope Mrs. Haggard has the sense and courage to get herself tested for HIV or any other STDs. Mike Jones is the only escort we know of so far that Mr. Haggard has hired. Once a month, over three years?

    Meth? Poppers? "Massage"? Escort service?

    If I were Mrs. Haggard I'd be down at the clinic getting myself tested, and pronto.

  18. He is guilty as HELL! I wonder how many closeted Christians are out there???

  19. well, having come from the background and seeing "behind the scenes" and being a "star" as a young adult and living a double life myself between platform and private....I know what happens.

    Fortunately, I got honest with myself one day and got out, knowing that to deceive others is to live in hell.

    The good thing about this is that another "Christian Leader" will bite the dust.

    It would be best for anyone who truly knows Christ personally to just shut up and live it. That's what I think.

    Now, when I f___ up I only do it to myself and can make amends and move on a lot easier.

    And I like myself now.

    And both of my kids love me and respect me even though they know I've done some bad things in my life.

    The problem isn't what he did; it's the hypocrisy as most of you have already noted.

    Just cut him some slack. He went too long with the image. He may never be able to get honest with himself.

    Anyone who has is better for it.

  21. God Loves him so much to expose him so he can get right with God. God loves those whom he chastend! We all have dirt in our lives that we hid that God want to clean us of.

    Posted by: Toure Clark | Nov 3, 2006 9:49:08 PM

  22. I will not cut him ANY slack. He didn't cut me, my family or my community any slack we he was demonizing, marginalizing and oppressing US. He's still lying through his teeth and selling the same old self-righteous snake oil he always has. Why should we cut him any slack at this point? He’s going to have to come clean, show some remorse and beg for forgiveness before he can expect to be cut ANY slack.

    It's clear that the sheep at New Life Church have discovered Towleroad and have descended upon us to defend their shepherd.

    Interesting how they will defend a closeted gay man who is cheating on his wife, sleeping with prostitutes and doing drugs but they think that honest, out, tax-paying, law-abiding, committed gay couples who want to be legally married are a threat to all things holy.

    That REALLY is a twisted view of Christianity!

  23. Totally off topic but Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser) just officially came out to "People" online only two days after his agent denied it.

  24. That link doesn't work. Just go to perezhilton.com (yeah, I know, sterilize the computer afterwards) or other celeb sites.

  25. OK, all I can say is I have been friends with Mike Jones for over 23 years. I have never known Mike to lie or do drugs, much less deal in drugs. He has always been a natural bodybuilder and even shuns aspirin.
    As for me I believe Mike's story even though I have not spoken to him directly concerning this. Mike has no reason to set someone up. So as far as name calling and second guessing goes let's all wait for the fat lady to sing. This story is not over yet.
