Pop položaj mijenja, ali afinitete nikad…
Naš stari znanac, osramoćeni i izbačeni Teg Haggard (pričali smo o njemu, kronološki, ovdje i ovdje), želi – a što drugo – novac. Da ironija bude veća, on se želi baviti “savjetovanjem” (cinici bi rekli da će nastaviti popovati) i za to se želi educirati, ali kako nije naučio raditi… žica ljude da mu šalju pare:The Rev. Ted Haggard, who left the megachurch he founded after admitting to “sexual immorality,” has asked supporters for financial assistance while he and his wife pursue their studies.
The former New Life Church pastor plans to seek a master’s degree in counseling at the University of Phoenix while his wife studies psychology, he said in an e-mail sent this week to KRDO-TV in Colorado Springs.
The couple and two of their sons planned to move Oct. 1 to the Phoenix Dream Center, a faith-based halfway house in Phoenix, where Haggard and his wife would provide counseling, the e-mail said.
“It looks as though it will take two years for us to have adequate earning power again, so we are looking for people who will help us monthly for two years,” the e-mail said. “During that time we will continue as full-time students, and then, when I graduate, we won’t need outside support any longer.”
Inače, za neupućene, plaća od oko $60.000,00 (godišnje, naravno) u USA se smatra pristojnim primanjem. Ako skupite godišnje $100.000,00 ili više, smatrajte se picajzlom u Božjoj bradi (u’vatili Boga za bradu, je l’ te ;)). Evo koliko je gosn. Haggard utržio u deset mjeseci prije izbijanja skandala, te kako on financijski stoji da mora prositi:
Haggard received a salary of $115,000 for the 10 months he worked in 2006 and an $85,000 anniversary bonus before the scandal broke, The Gazette reported. Haggard’s severance package included a year’s salary of $138,000, and he collects royalties on his book titles, the newspaper reported.
El Paso County records show Haggard’s home, which has been up for sale, has a market value of $715,051.
Naravno, to je sve nužno… za spas vaših duša (mojoj ionako nema spasa)…
