Disgraced ex-pastor Ted Haggard announced today that he will soon be hosting a "launch party" at his own home to kick off a new church he's starting.
He claims everyone - including gays - will be welcome, and that he does not expect a new mega church, but will be happy "if just a few people join".
Called St. James Church, Haggard and his family plan a launch party at his home on Sunday at 10 a.m. At the party, Haggard says people can mingle, swim and jump on the family's trampoline.
But will he perform gay marriages?
Haggard says everyone is welcome to attend the party:
Democrats, Republicans, Independents, gays, straights, the short and tall, specifically.
The church's first official service was scheduled for three weeks from Sunday.
