Ted Haggard was the influential pastor of Colorado's New Life Church, a charismatic megachurch with more 10,000 members, before a sex scandal that led to his 2006 confession of using gay prostitutes and crystal meth. Haggard helped elect President George W. Bush and supported an amendment to the Colorado constitution that would ban gay marriage. In a 2006 letter to members of his church, Haggard admitted to "sexual immorality" and called himself a "sinner and a liar." He was removed from the leadership of the church, and has since founded a new church and supports same-sex marriage.
