Ted Haggard, one-time leader of the Colorado Springs Evangelical megachurch New Life Church, since deposed following a buggery and methamphetamine scandal, has annouced the formation of a new church.
During a press conference today, Haggard announced "Everybody is welcome: Democrats, Republican, Independents, gays, straights, tall, short, addicts and recovering addicts." He added "St. James is a church for sinners, for people who have hit rock bottom and people who want to help people who have hit rock bottom. It is not a gathering for the righteous, except those who are righteous by faith."
That's nice. Nonetheless, The Advocate is reporting Haggard "will not perform same-sex marriages."
