Church Overseers: Haggard's E-Mail 'Inappropriate'

Overseers of New Life Church say an e-mail founder Ted Haggard sent asking for money was "inappropriate."

The overseers have been watching over Haggard's so-called "restoration" since he was fired as pastor of the Colorado Springs church last year after admitting to "sexual immorality."

Last week Haggard sent an e-mail to a Colorado Springs TV station saying he planned to counsel at a faith-based Phoenix halfway house. Haggard also sought financial support.

Church overseers said they told Haggard his plan was "unacceptable." They say Haggard won't be doing any ministry and will seek secular employment instead.

Haggard says he's barred from commenting on the overseers' statement.
