    Another "Christian" leader (quotations.... and questions intentional) forming a group to make God in his own image and to fit his own agenda it seems.

    These must be the end times when the devil is so busy seducing the saints!

    He's Presbyterian.

    And his devotion to environmentalism and liberalism is nothing new:

    "...Her opponent in the [Democratic] primary is Richard Cizik, a 21-year-old Whitworth College political science student. Cizik, a coordinator of Democratic presidential nominee George S. McGovern's county college voter drive,..." ---Spokane Spokesman-Review, 1973

    This is nothing more that liberals in the church aligning themselves with the Democrat party.

    I think the NAE was already going the wrong way when Haggard became president. He was aligned with C Peter Wagner and that New Apostolic Reformation, which is full of theological potholes.

    Right...because we should discount an entire organization because it's leader had a secret sin that no one knew about.

    The problem with Haggard when he was elected Pres. of the NAE wasn't the secret sin. It was his association with the NAR, as I pointed out above.
