Mike Jones demands apology from New Life Church in latest Ted Haggard scandal
This morning on Peter Boyles' KHOW talk show, Mike Jones, the onetime male escort who went public about his relationship with nationally known New Life Church pastor Ted Haggard, blasted New Life Church for covering up information that Haggard had been involved in a sexual relationship with another young man. (KRDO-TV, a Colorado Springs station, took the lead on this story, and will feature the man in a report slated to air tonight.) In the video above, he elaborates, declaring that he's been contacted by a number of Haggard's male sex partners over time -- yet New Life pastor Brady Boyd has consistently refused to meet with him. The clip is angry and emotional, even criticizing the gay community. View it by clicking the screen above.
