    I thought you'd all like to know that he's (mostly) recovered from his bout of homosexuality, and while he's not entirely healthy again he's at least on good terms with his wife and with God. However, his former church is somewhat less forgiving; he taught them well.

    He's a liar! He's felt this way as a kid and continues to feel so but doesn't want to say he's completely gay or bi cause it's too complex? Just so he can try and have the respect and liking of his congregation? Fuck them and him for not being true to himself!

    It's those type of people right there in his shoes who make it so hard for just your average gay person to be accepted.

    Ughh, I'm not losing my buzz over this - goodnight!

    Must be. All straight men love Chuck Norris. :rofl:

    I like Chuck Norris, but not beef jerky, but that might just mean I've got a thing for men with beards...

    He added, "I would say the biggest change is I now know about hatred than I ever dreamed, and I know it doesn't help. And I know more about judgment and I know it doesn't help. Since my experience, I know more about the power of love and forgiveness. I know a lot more about the necessity of people not judging one another."

    That's nice :hs:

    :rolleyes:

    What garbage.

    I am black now. I changed my race overnight. :rolleyes:

    This is just another example of how religion warps people's minds. And turns many people into liars and bigots.

    I've been where he is. I turned to religion to be straight in my 20s.

    It wasn't long before I was sticking my cock under bathroom stalls for blowjobs.

    It's just a matter of time, guys. He'll be caught in a gay bar or in a bathroom or with a make hooker. Just "keep the faith", so to speak.

    Hey, anonymous sex happens when you're trying to figure out your sexuality... regardless if it's under a bathroom stall, or meeting someone online, or taking someone home from a bar for a one night stand.

    The important thing was that I was safe (no exchange of bodily fluids). And thankfully I didn't get arrested for public exposure or anything like that.

    [FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]As HBO preps for the debut of its new documentary The Trials of Ted Haggard on January 29, comes news of yet another sex scandal involving Ted Haggard and a young member of The New Life Church he pastored until his sexual relationship with a male prostitute was revealed nearly three years ago.[/FONT]

    [FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Brady Boyd, the current senior pastor of The New Life Church, told worshippers at the church during his sermon this past Sunday that beginning in 2007 payments were made to a young male church member who claims to have had a relationship with Mr. Haggard before his dismissal from the church in 2006.[/FONT]

    I just read the synopsis by Dave White (who is hilarious).

    I highly recommend this read. Make sure to read all four pages... it'll only take you a few minutes... but it's GOLD!!! Totally worth your time.

    lmao, pretty succinct and accurate link

    the only part that stood out for me that the article missed out, was Gayle (Ted's wife) trying to push the idea of acting on gay thoughts as a choice that a good Christian man can then not make.... Oprah proceeds to disagree aggressively on behalf of herself and her audience, brings up the experiences that her gay friends have had, and lols in Gayle's face

    I enjoyed that part thoroughly :mamoru:

    That's the big issue with the ex-gay movement.

    See, while I am born gay, I choose to act on my desires. So, that makes me an actively gay man. I'm a "practicing gay", if you will.

    Ted Haggert apparently has decided to not act on his gay desires anymore. But that doesn't make him straight anymore than a celibate priest who doesn't act on his desires is straight. They are just non-practicing gays.

    The sex act doesn't make someone gay. The desire makes them gay.




    Theoretically (and I'm not saying I could actually do this), I could stop having sex with men today and start having sex with women for the rest of my life. That doesn't make me straight. On my dying day, I'd still be a gay man.
