Ted Haggard Hot Tub

January 27, 2011

I’m not one to pick on a man when he’s down, but when you take a picture like this you’re inviting some sort of response. Then again, if you’re featured in GQ and you have a reality TV show are you really that down?


Here’s the link to the GQ interview he gave in case you want to read it. And just for fun here’s what the same picture would look like if Craig Robinson from The Office and Hot Tub Time Machine had been there for the photo shoot.

    Why??? That’s a pretty dumb photo. But, I did see Gail Haggard speak at Catalyst last year, and against all my expectations, she was actually really amazing. Then again, she wasn’t in a hot tub.

      Pretty much the same story here. I saw them both at the Youth Specialties conference a couple of months ago. She was incredible, a living embodiment of redemption I was actually looking forward to hearing from him too, but he turned out to be a total train wreck. Still very bitter and angry at his old church. Maybe he’s a little justified there, but then he tried to crack a joke. Jets were flying over the arena we were in so he made this brilliant crack: “I hope those aren’t angry Muslims coming to fly those planes into this building.” No exaggeration, that’s a direct quote.

      He followed that up with this great pearl of wisdom. When they asked him what advice he’d give a pastor struggling with sin, he said: “I would tell them to find a licensed therapist…..because they are legally bound by law to keep your secrets, that way if you ever run for governor or become famous they can’t use it against you and blackmail you.”

      I hope he finds what he’s looking for, but this photo shoot doesn’t help his cause.

    Wait, so David Lynch was actually a documentarian? ‘Cause I swear, a midget walking & talking backwards would only make this shot seem LESS creepy…
