Ted Haggard to Make 'Groundbreaking' Announcement Today

Actually, it's a "surprise groundbreaking" announcement, according to CNN (not sure how it's a surprise anymore, but...):

Haggard "Ted Haggard, the megachurch pastor and former National Association of Evangelicals chief whose career was undone by a gay prostitution and drugs scandal in 2006, is expected to talk about the next step in his career Wednesday. With his family by his side at his Colorado Springs home, Haggard is expected to a make 'surprise groundbreaking' announcement, according to a news statement Tuesday."

9News Colorado Springs reports:

"The media alert sent out announcing Wednesday's news conference was distributed by Amy Prenner at the Prenner Group. The Los Angeles-based public relations firm boasts it has spent 15 years working in the entertainment industry and has an exclusive network of high-level media contacts, 'along with an eye for strategy and an awareness of entertainment journalists.' Haggard told 9NEWS Tuesday afternoon he cannot talk about what the announcement will be. 'The people who make the big bucks make it for a reason,' Haggard said. He referred all questions to Prenner. The news release does say Haggard 'will face the press and media with surprise groundbreaking announcement about his future.'"

So, do you all have any predictions?

  2. Maybe he and his family have come to terms with his homosexuality and he is opening a church that is gay friendly?

    One can hope.

  4. What a creep. Sounds like he's desperate for his 15 minutes, again. All those years being Mr. Important in the evangelical movement... and now he's known as Mr. Icky in it. He'd do anything to get in power again, though that ain't happening. I bet he says he's now successfully an Ex-Gay, or something, as if there was such a thing.

  5. He's manning the first NASA space mission to Mars? Oh please...

  7. I can't begin to imagine what this lying pig from hell has to say that is so groundbreaking?
    Maybe he has been cured of his homosexuality, 'cos I don't want him pitching on our team, that is for sure!!

  8. Maybe it's literal. As in, "He'll be breaking ground on a new homosexual rehabilitation clinic."

    Eh, that still wouldn't be a surprise.

  9. He will say that he has heard the word of God speaking throughout the ordeal that he put his family through and he will dedicate his life to undoing the evil that he has done and will start by openly embracing the gay community as he is a gay man who has been embracing it for years all be it for pay…

  10. I think Rontex's guess is probably it.....should be interesting to find out what this "surprise" is? Hmmmmmm, I can ONLY Imagine.

  11. "He's manning the first NASA space mission to Mars? Oh please..."

    Actually, he'll be "manning" the first space mission to Uranus.

  12. If he's banging Al Gore all is forgiven

  13. Maybe he will say he did some research and found that all of the passages in the Bible that supposedly say that being gay is bad are actually referencing having sex with religious prostitutes (actually true).. so he has decided he was one of these religious prostitutes and will then pour gasoline over himself and his family and create a immolation of religious ecstasy..,, [i give this guess less than 50% chance of happening.]

  14. He went back to sucking dick and found Jesus in a Penis?

  15. As part of his gay reparative therapy, he was staring at his wife's naked body. Suddenly, her bush caught fire and he heard the voice of God. The burning bush, as burning bushes are want to do, told Ted that it's ok to be gay. Embracing Pride Month, Ted will lead the ex-gays out of Exodus and into California.

  16. So what little money he has made over the past several months in his NEW "Start Up Church" he has just spent with a "high Level (see: High Costing) Media Consultant Firm", just so he can make some friggin announcement that he hopes will propel him in a "Larger (see MORE MONEY SUCKING) Church"!!! Trust me it will all be about Bigger, Better, tons more money opportunities!!!!

  17. My vote for a "surprise groundbreaking" announcement is:

    He hired a hispanic prostitute named Jesus. They had sex twice. The second time seman squirted all over the motel sheets. When you hold up a black light to look at the sheets, you see a portrait of Jesus Christ. So Haggard will announce the second coming of Jesus.

  18. same 'ol, same 'ol...

    I'm sure it's a talk-show with some element that THEY think makes it "new".

    Whatever the spin, all I can say is, 'a new sucker born every minute.'

  19. "MANNING" a mission to mars. That's hilarious.

  20. He is going on holiday to europe with a young male helper to carry his sack.

  21. I think Dave may be on to something, at least I hope so. While I do not personally value his opinion, it would be interesting to see what effect his "voice" would have with those hard-core evangelicals who still support him. Maybe it would serve as a bridge of sorts. We can't all play this "us" vs. "them" game forever. This gay world is big enough for any gay man big enough to man up to who he is.

  22. The leopard cannot change his spots. This guy is likely to tell the world that he is now 100% heterosexual thanks to a new, improved gay-scrubbing God-endorsed therapy that he --along with a team of reputable scientists-- has perfected. He will open his new and exciting ministy soon. It is a ministry that focuses on the treatment of poor, satanic-influenced gay men and turn them into virile heterosexuals ready to hew the lower forty with ax in hand.

  23. RONTEX and DISGUSTED AMERICAN, you guys can't be serious. He's making an anouncement with his family... People like Haggard are incapable of living in the world of reality. For them, only self-delusion and myths make their own lives seem reasonable.

  24. @ CRISPY -- Brilliant! :-)
