Haggard said he personally supports the war in Iraq and probably would not agree with much in the Rev. George Regas' 2004 sermon at All Saints, which was cited by the IRS as the basis for its investigation. But Haggard said he wants to work with the council of churches "in doing whatever it takes to get the IRS to stop" such actions.(Via Omis, via Mark)
"It is a violation of the Constitution for the IRS to threaten that church. It may not be a violation of IRS regulations, but IRS regulations have been wrong," said Haggard, who is pastor of the 12,000-member New Life Church in Colorado Springs.
Haven't had the time to do a good blogosphere search on this, but I'm still wondering if conservative bloggers are as outraged by this as they should be.
As to Ted Haggard, an interview with him on his politics from Christianity Today a few days back. Not sure I agree entirely. Been meaning to blog on it, but you know how that slippery thing, time is. (Especially when one is preoccupied with the health of one of one's closest friends.)
