Haggard’s former staff member responds to HBO documentary

Here is the link.  And here is the money shot:

“I was hoping — against hope — that The Trials of Ted Haggard would document his walking into the light. It doesn’t. It captures his attempt to reenter the limelight. It’s agonizing to watch Haggard gather the pieces of his life, shuffle from temporary home to temporary home, and learn how to make an honest buck. It’s terrible to watch him suffer. But what is most painful is the question the documentary doesn’t ask:Why? Why, just a few months after Haggard and his family suffered an unspeakable tragedy in public view, would he invite the cameras back? Why would he want his story documented and sold in this way? Anyone who cares about Haggard, as I do, must see this comeback as a continuation of his tragedy.”
