Religion Overseers to Haggard: Get a Job!
posted by August 29 at 20:40 PMon
Ted Haggard’s overseers cracked the the motherfuckin’ whip yesterday—p*tsch! p*tsch!—and told the cocksucking, freeloading fundy to stop shaking down gullible Christians and find some honest work.
Overseers tell Haggard: Stop asking for money and get a job
Disgraced pastor Ted Haggard won’t be fundraising for a Monument nonprofit run by a sex offender, won’t be ministering to anyone and needs to get a job, his overseers said in a statement released this afternoon.
“Mr. Haggard’s solicitation for personal support was inappropriate,” his church supervisors said in the statement.
Take a bow, Dave Coffman. It was Coffman who discovered that Haggard had had directed his supporters to send him money via a convicted sex offender, and it was this revelation—which we broke here on Slog—that brought the wrath of Haggard’s overseers down on his head. Good work, Dave!
Oh, man. What a great day. I fucking live for the day when every asshole out there bilking gullible Christians out of their hard-earned dough—from the Nazi pope on down—is told the same damn thing: Get a fucking job, you parasite.
UPDATE: The spanking Haggard received from his overseers yesterday also makes the Washington Post—although the WaPo omits the sordid “registered sex offender” angle. Still, man, the Washington Post… sucks to be Ted, huh?
