Ted Haggard, Wife to Appear on 'Divorce Court'

I saw this in the news the other day. Can anyone say freak show? Is there no shame? - Haggard, Wife to Appear on 'Divorce Court' Show

I'm not saying that is it impossible for sinners to ever amend their ways. Nor am I saying that it is impossible for a fallen leader to 'rehabilitate' himself and become useful to the kingdom again. What I am saying is that not nearly enough time has gone by for this former evangelical leader to be back in the public spotlight.

Earlier this week I saw former New York Governor, Elliot Spitzer, on CNN. He was humble and contrite speaking about his moral failures. Yet, does anyone think that he is fit for office? Furthermore I doubt that he will be able to make a living from his chosen career (law) anytime soon.

This is my advice for Ted Haggard - do us all a favor and just stay out of the spotlight for a few more years. In the mean time work on your marriage, care for your family, and continue to be accountable.
