Given the recent scandal Mayor Sam Adams and his totally consensual relationship with 18 year old(Beau Breedlove) that he dated. I'd like to take the moment point out now THIS , THIS IS A SEX SCANDAL! Brady Boyd New Life Church's new pastor and friend of Haggard (originally replacing Ted Haggard) had this to say after a volunteer who wished to remain anonymous broke the scandal after learning of the cover up:
Boyd said the church reached a legal settlement to pay the man for counseling and college tuition, with one condition being that none of the parties involved discuss the matter publicly. Boyd said a Colorado Springs TV station reached him Thursday to say the young man was planning to provide a detailed report of his relationship with Haggard to the station. Boyd said the church preferred to keep the matter private, but it was the man's decision to go public. Anticipating criticism of the settlement with the former church volunteer, Boyd said Friday that it was in the best interests of all involved. He would not name the volunteer or the settlement amount. 'It wasn't at all a settlement to make him be quiet or not tell his story,' Boyd said. 'Our desire was to help him. Here was a young man who wanted to get on with his life. We considered it more compassionate assistance — certainly not hush money. I know what's what everyone will want to say because that's the most salacious thing to say, but that's not at all what it was.' He said that 'secondarily, it's not great for our church either' that the story be told. Boyd said Haggard knew about the settlement two years ago.
Not great for their church you say? Are you kidding me? You have to kidding!?
