Ted Haggard to Promote HBO Documentary About Life in Exile

He can't stand to be out of the limelight.

HaggardTed Haggard will promote a documentary directed by Alexandra Pelosi that follows the disgraced pastor and his family after he stepped down from New Life Church following revelations that he bought meth and had sex with male escort Mike Jones.

Said an HBO spokesperson: "We look forward to presenting the film, Ted Haggard and his family at a press tour in Los Angeles next month."

The AP reports: "Neither Pelosi nor Haggard responded to requests for comment on the documentary, which is scheduled to first air Jan. 29. However, a Web site for a Toronto-based entertainment company that promotes HBO and other television projects describes it as 'a behind-scenes-look at the rise and fall of Pastor Ted Haggard.' The 41-minute documentary 'follows Haggard and his family as they move from houses to motels as the excommunicated pastor tries to redeem himself and support his loved ones,' it says."

Haggard, who recently began speaking publicly again, has been released from restrictions placed on him after the scandal, according to New Life's new pastor Brady Boyd. Said Boyd: "They are not acting outside any parameters we set for them. We want them to be free to move forward with their lives the way New Life has really moved forward."

  1. God really should keep closer tabs on the kind of people his 'friends' are.

  2. I hope this is going to include an interview with the guy he bought sex from -- was it good sex? Did Haggard have any fun fetishes? Did he scream "Oh God" when he shot? I hope that Mike Jones got a lot of money for having sex with Haggard, because it's not a very appetizing thought.

  3. I expect Haggard was probably a nasty pig-bottom who called out 'Fuck me Jesus' over and over at the pace of a metronome. So no, I don't think Mike Jones was paid enough, or ever could be paid enough.

  4. Christ - another one?

    I'm so tired of the media whore "celebrities" and the producers and their money-grubbing reps who keep shoving these losers onto the public airwaves feigning human feelings and undeserved misfortune for the sole purpose of resurrecting their undeserved careers.

    What ever happened to shunning and a couple decades of humbled penance?

    Boo Hoo - let's have a pity party for the scumbag hypocrite...

  5. I wonder if he had accepted his homosexuality many years ago when he should have if he would have turned into such an awful excuse for a human being.

  6. I looked at that clip and all I could think of was "big business". Yep. It's a huge money making machine. This is exactly why I believe that if these "religious" entities want to be involved in politics, instead of the faith they pretend to practice, they need to start paying taxes. Yes sireeeee... Let's start with real estate taxes and then work our way up the ladder to income taxes.

  12. Some title suggestions: "I stuck my dick in another man's pooper and got caught" or "Don't Fuck an Escort, Don't Preach".

  16. Tough crowd! At some point, I imagine, Haggard is going to come completely out. He says he still has "sexual conflicts", which means he cannot get his same-sex genie back into the bottle. I know it's difficult to feel pity for this guy, but at least show him may just a little of the compassion he never showed us. He's a sick guy, but it is his "religion" and the "christian" lifestyle that is making him sick, not his queerness. He got sucked into the evangie-fundie world because it brought him fame, power, adulation, and MONEY! Lots and lots of MONEY! If we want to get those evangelical assholes off our backs, it's time to tax any church that intervenes in the secular, political process under the hypocritical guise of freedom of speech or religion. Freedom of speech--maybe. But claiming that one is exercising their freedom of religion by actively campaigning to support a ballot initiative that strips a group of citizens of their civil equality is that slippery slope down which we slide into fascism and theocratic tyranny. There is no such thing as a "freedom" to spread hate and inflict oppression. Tax the bastards. That'll shut them up.

  17. Ugh ... Ted's facial expression indicates that he's big time pervert.

    Even after he was exposed, he still is pervert. Probably stalked these adult bookstores wherever he is in.

    R-
