Ted Haggard


this man of faith, this evangelist
this messenger of god
this poster child of christian right
is nothing but a fraud

this champion of causes that
denounced all that was gay
was a heterosexual when at work
and a faggot when at play

i do not think i've ever seen
a bigger hypocrite
he preached by day, got high at night
and engaged in freaky kind of shit

he used the bible and his charm
he lied and he deceived
and i will never understand
why countless folks in him believed

this man of faith, this evangelist
this messenger of god
this poster child of christian right
is nothing but a fraud
