UNITED STATES: 'Ted Haggard is now heterosexual'
published: Wednesday | February 7, 2007
A leading evangelist who admitted to "sexual immorality" following allegations of sex with a male prostitute is convinced he is "completely heterosexual," said one of four ministers who oversaw three weeks of intensive counselling with the disgraced minister.
The Rev. Ted Haggard, a vocal opponent of gay marriage, also said his sexual contact with men was limited to the former male prostitute who came forward with sexual allegations, the Rev. Tim Ralph of Larkspur told The Denver Post for a story yesterday edition.
"He is completely heterosexual," Ralph said. "That is something he discovered. It was the acting-out situations where things took place. It wasn't a constant thing."
Haggard resigned as president of the National Association of Evangelicals last year after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced. He was also forced out from the 14,000 New Life Church that he founded years ago in his basement after Jones alleged Haggard paid him for sex and sometimes used methamphetamine when they were together. Haggard, who is married, has publicly admitted to "sexual immorality."

I'm sorry, I had a Gilda Radner moment...
...Barbara Walters had this to say...
"What is interesting in this world of rehab, is that he went in for three whole weeks of treatment. And in those weeks, he really fell that it was his religion. He said that three weeks were like three months and Jesus put him back together again.
But somebody said to me, 'You know when your kid smokes and you don't want your kid to smoke or when your kid drinks and you don't want your kid to drink, so you make the kid smoke all day till he or she can't stand it... you make him drink all day...
I wanna know what they did in the three weeks.'"
Barbara Walters breakin' it down.
