Tweaker Ted shows up in Pelosi HBO documentary
Fundies need to be careful before they commit their pious ways to video/film. You never know what sort of rent boy might turn up, in the case of former megachurch pastor Ted Haggard.
This week HBO is airing a doco by Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s daughter Alexandra, Friends of God, that features the fallen leader talking about those sexy evangelicals.
The HBO documentary shows the Rev. Ted Haggard, the former president of the National Association of Evangelicals, talking frankly about how evangelical Christians have sex more than any other religious group.
“You know all the surveys say that evangelicals have the best sex life of any other group,” he says. [In or out of the closet, Ted?]
In the documentary, Haggard asks an evangelical next to him how often he has sex with his wife. The man replies, “Every day.” Haggard then explains that evangelicals have a lot of love and says to Pelosi, “You don’t think these babies come out of nowhere?”
You might recall that escort Mike Jones said Haggard confessed to him that the pastor had to do meth before having sex with his wife. Good thing Pelosi didn’t ask Ted the question, especially in light of how he spent his honeymoon, according to his wife.
In her book, she reflected on the personality differences of her husband and herself, noting his idea for their honeymoon was a group backpacking and camping trip while she envisioned a more intimate setting.
“That was our first clue that maybe we weren’t as much alike as we thought we were and that it was going to take some time for us to grow together,” she wrote in A Life Embraced: A Hopeful Guide for the Pastor’s Wife.
What is Ted up to these days? I haven’t heard anything about him in the press since he went into seclusion for his three-to-five-year “restoration” under the tutelage of H.B. London, VP for church and clergy at Focus on the Anus.
“From the Christian perspective, we think in terms of prayer, we think in terms of what we call godly counsel, where godly men who are clean themselves insert themselves in the life of the one who is struggling,” London said.
The documentary premieres Jan. 25 at 9PM on HBO.
