Well, this is interesting….

if it’s true.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 2 — The Rev. Ted Haggard, the president of the National Association of Evangelicals and one of the nation’s most influential Christian leaders, resigned on Thursday, one day after a former male prostitute in Denver said in television and radio interviews that he had had a three-year sexual relationship with Mr. Haggard.

Ted Haggard, some contend, is more than your garden-variety evangelical; he’s the leader of a somewhat Dominionist congregation in the Vatican of American evangelicalism, Colorado Springs.

Who knows if it’s true or not? But it’s bad news for a political force that many contend has peaked and can only plateau or fall from here on out.
