If Ted Haggard Read Howatch

"Now let me lay out the unvarnished truth for you, Alice, and this isn't a prediction which may or may not come true. This is fact. . . . When any religious community goes to pieces the collapse almost always begins with a loss of integrity manifested in the form of sexual license. The leader uses and abuses the women around him--and men--and then the whole enterprise, fueled by an atmosphere of jealousy, suspicion and anger, descends rapidly into chaos.

Lewis Hall in The Wonder Worker by Susan Howatch
