    Haggards incorporate new church - The Denver Post

    Ted and Gayle Haggard recently incorporated St. James Church, sited at their home on Old Ranch Road in Colorado Springs, where the couple held two overflowing prayer meetings in November.

    The Haggards did not return The Post's calls, but Ted Haggard, the deposed founder of the New Life megachurch, told the Gazette newspaper on Tuesday that the incorporation of a new church on April 29 was done for accounting purposes — tracking reimbursement of travel costs as they speak at churches and other venues around the country.

    Haggard predicted to the Gazette that he would return to some form of ministry someday, and he wouldn't rule out that St. James — whose name is derived from a verse in the Bible's Book of James that states "faith without works is dead" — might one day be a real church.

    Haggard was senior pastor at New Life for 25 years and a national evangelical Christian leader until his relationship with a male prostitute came to light in 2006.

    Is there a reason this post is in the political forum instead of the religious forum?

    Feel free to move it there - however, the reason why I posted it here b/c Haggard was in the POLITICAL spectrum for quite some time(i.e. He regularly met with Bush II to discuss social issues, and was lobbying hard to add an ammendment to the constitution to ban gay marriage).

    Again - feel free to move it to the Religious forum, but nonetheless, this man was disgraced not too long over for doing something which was opposite of what he campaigned hard in the political arena...and now, only a MERELY couple of years later, somehow, he's back.
