It turns out his past is still coming back to haunt him.
After the whole Haggard debacle died down, Mike tried to get his life back on track. He went back to school and became certified as a Nursing Assistant.
Two weeks ago, he got a job with Christian Living Communities. That came to an end quickly…
Mike writes in an email to me:
… The residents loved me and several staff members commented on what a wonderful job I was doing.Well today I got fired. The pulled me into the office with tons of stuff they pulled off the internet about me and a copy of my book. They said they could not have a person like me working for them. I asked them: Is it not Christian that people can turn their life around and given a second chance? They would not respond to that and told me they had no use for my type.
His “type”? Do they mean gay?
I’m not sure how Jones’ past has any bearing on his ability to do the work for which he’s getting paid. Neither does his sexuality.
Updates to follow; hopefully, good ones.
