    I guess psuedo-dr. James Dobson's treatment didn't work for that power bottom.

    I feel bad for the family... but i love that this is happening. It's like John Paulk all over again.

    he has about as much chance of "successfully praying away the gay" as I do of successfully praying to wake up Chinese.

    He gives new meaning to the word p-h-o-n-y. His wife stated that she remains devoted because of the "teachings of Jesus" but somehow I think that if Oprah announced that she was gay the "teachings of Jesus" would fly out of the window.

    His former church has evidence of a sexual relationship with a young man congregant. Andrew Sulivan of the Atlantic asks
    Andrew SullivanAt some point, surely evangelical Christians will have to ask themselves: are we going to continue to demonize homosexuality to such an extent that even our ablest preachers and leaders are led into destructive, secret and often abusive relationships because we cannot allow them to pursue open and honest and loving ones?

    ditto

    ....I keep thinking how many times he "messed" with those who trusted him about their infedelity and then he goes and does this! Yeah what a prick.
    I just hope that when hes on his knees the memory of him being on his knees to service that male escort over powers his shallow prayers and that he becomes a prisoner of that.

    I think this is more proof that a man can't get away from his true self, not though religion or psyhciatric couseling like Haggard has done. Not sure what he can say now that he publically admitted to exposing himself to a young man in his congregation who came to him with feelings for men. I'm sure that the young man is now a victim instead of a beneficiary of words and possible wisdom.

    Also if he should let his wife go to someone who only has feelings for women becuase that is what she ultimately wants. He's being selfish toward her.

    Meh there's nothing special about men like him, though they are all sad. there are always people out there who do some pretty wacky/sick stuff, and hide behind something to justify their behaviors because they are cowards, whether it be some guy doing some grotesque piece of work, and saying its "art", or someone who uses religion to justify the evil they do to others, or use it to condemn the lives of others, because they're living with the guilt themselves, and hate themselves for it, so they want to attack, and or try to make the lives of others hard, or feel the guilt they do.

    Men like him don't know anything about god (their actions, or words show/tell that). God doesn't hate anyone who is gay, and after hearing a friend's whole story on how he felt growing up, and being attracted to men, its clear some people are just born that way, and trying to pray that away would be like being born with a birth defect, and trying to pray that way, it can't be done. The only people who say stupid crap like that, are people who don't truly understand/know god. It doesn't matter what position you are in the church, I don't care if you're the pope himself, that doesn't mean they know god more than anyone else, or better. They're just men, and all men are imperfect, which is why you ask for forgiveness when you do mess up, and god is very forgiving, and all about the love. The only people god rejects, are people who strongly reject him, and or harm, or wish to see harm come to the people who care for him.

    What this guy did that was wrong, was sneaking other men in his home or whatever, wherever on his wife, that's just pretty gross, and then lying about it, and condemning others (which I'm sure he did) who were gay. Nothing is wrong with being attracted to another man, or wanting love from another man, nothing's wrong with that, or new about it, the abnormalities of it come in when you start wrapping yourself in the whole gay world/life style, and or trying to get married and all to appear one way, only for it to get put on blast later on, embarrassing, and hurting your family, and yourself

    It's only a matter of time before he has another gay relationship. The power of his religion is compelling him to flee his true sexual nature. But it's going to happen again. And what will he fall back on the next time? His faith? Well his faith never took away his gay sexual desires before. And it won't now either. He's a damned fool who doesn't even really understand the Bible he claims to know so well. Tragic, actually.

    No, faceless, that little poem was about you. When they said "stay away from the light, Carol Ann", they weren't advising you, and - it was just a movie.

    Any of us that have had to deal with the conflicts of religion v.s. our homosexuality can sympathize with his situation....

    but what the hell is this crap that he is heterosexual with homosexual "attachments" OMG!! somebody get the lysol, I smell shit!!!

    This is so stupid...just admit your gay or bi, dam!

    I think it is so admirable that he had told his wife in the beginning years ago that he struggled with it, but its unfortnate that he cheated on her and had to live his life as he did.

    It seems there are so many people now that are getting caught in their conflict with their sexuality, Larry Craig, Ted Haggerd, and etc....it makes me wonder how many others are out there that are gay and in denial?

    And if they would only all come out and take a stand for what is right and not be ashamed... how the world would have to accept us.

    If the United States would just lighten up about sexuality and sex in general we wouldn't have all this conflict, denial and suicide and "straight" men having sex in bathrooms and all of this crap.

    I wish I was an evangelical Christian. Then I could do whatever the f*ck I wanted, to hell with my fellow man, and then simply wash it away once a week. What a life!

    I wanna play the "god" card over and over and over again too!
