I am shocked--shocked!--to hear that disgraced degenerate goatherd (and I say that with all due respect) Ted Haggard is supporting the U.S. presidential candidacy of adulterous New Age convert to Roman Catholicism Newt Gingrich. As reported by Kris Coombs in the Christian Post, December 30, 2011:
Ted Haggard, former president of the National Association of Evangelicals, says he will support Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich in 2012.
“I am a Newt Gingrich fan partially because he models resurrection to me. He has been married three times, he has gone through his own infidelity, his own growth process, and his own repentance and renewal of faith so I trust him because of that,” Haggard told FOX 411.
Haggard, former pastor of the New Life Church in Colorado, was also one of former President George W. Bush’s biggest supporters during his campaign and served as Bush’s spiritual adviser.
“It is the heartbreak in life that makes us the people we want to be,” Haggard added, embracing Gingrich’s relationship faults, as other conservatives have relentlessly condemned them.
