Escort says Haggard's apology "hollow"

Mike Jones, the gay prostitute who brought down a Colorado Springs evangelical pastor with allegations the two had a three-year homosexual affair, said today that he feels the minister still hasn't been completely honest.

Pastor Ted Haggard, founder and leader of the 14,000-member New Life Church, admitted Friday he had purchased methamphetamine while in Denver to receive a massage from Jones but said he never ingested the drug. Church overseers said Saturday that Haggard had confessed to them some sexual indiscretions but didn't specify what he had admitted.

"He's still lying to himself," Jones said of Haggard, who was fired by church overseers Saturday for "sexually immoral" conduct. "If he's not truly honest with himself, he'll never be over it."


From Ted Haggard’s sermon last week, four days before accusations of his gay affair became public: “Heavenly Father, give us grace and mercy, help us this next week and a half as we go into national elections and Lord we pray for our country. Father, we pray lies would be exposed and deception exposed. Father, we pray that wisdom would come upon our electorate …”
