Ted Haggard 'Grateful' 7 Years After Gay Sex Scandal
"I'm really excited about where our family is, where our marriage is. I feel that we're stronger than ever and that we continue to grow in that strength," Gayle says in the clip. She adds that her new book, Courageous Grace, reveals what they learned in recovering from the scandal.
Video then and now still in denial:
Damn, what lengths one will go through to stay in the closet.
They never stop cheating. They just get better at it.
Fucking screwballs. Just admit you're gay. If you and the wife want to stay married, then fine. It's fucked up, but fine--stay married.
But stop trying to talk in circles about sometimes you have choices, sometimes you don't have choices; it's who I am, it's not not all who I am. Blah, blah, blah. All your friggin chatter is bullshit.
STFU and stop going through these mental gymnastic denials. You're gay. You're a gay man who has chosen to stay married to a hetero woman.
Screwballs--but don't be liars on top of it.
Religion rots the brain to such a degree that down is up. He has no idea what the truth is, or how to find it.
Ping! Ping! Ping! Gaydar alert!
Did you see Ted's 1 of Ted's 5 children in the family photo in that video? Top row, 2nd from left? My Gaydar began smoking as it pinged off the chart.
What say you?
I'd look, but it's huffpo, which crashes my pad.
And he is still grateful every time he has gay sex too
All of his sons except one looked gay to me, R5. It's very telling that only one has gotten married so far.
So are he and his wifey having "sexual intercourse" together? I doubt it.
Does he still have the dildo he made of his own dick called Ted 2?
I bet he is grateful. Now that it's public knowledge, hooking up in bathrooms has become so much easier.
If he had come out, he would have had a hard time getting a well-paying job. By pretending to be straight and happily-married, they've got a fundie church that provides them with an income. If she had divorced him, there would have been no money for alimoney payments. Both of them are KKKristians, pretending to be happy.
This man spends HOURS every day jacking off to gay porn, at the very least.
We know and admire Ted and his strapping bride.
Ugh, pinchy face. Taylor Lautner has it too.
Pinchy face is a good way to describe him.
[italic]In 2006, Ted Haggard was easily one of the most influential evangelical leaders in the United States. As president of the National Association of Evangelicals and founder and pastor of the New Life Church, a megachurch in Colorado Springs, Colo., he had millions of devoted followers and public support from his wife, Gayle, and their five children.
But his life changed abruptly when former male escort Mike Jones alleged that Haggard -- who had condemned homosexuality as a sin -- paid him for sex and methamphetamine. At first, Haggard denied the claims, but when Jones released voicemails of Haggard asking for drugs, he eventually admitted to "sexual immorality" and to buying methamphetamine. He was forced to resign from the church he led for 22 years.
That was seven years ago...[/italic]
Today, he no longer has millions of devoted followers. He no longer is rolling in the millions of dollars collected by the New Life Church. The one thing that hasn't changed is that he's still a closet case.
In January 2009, allegations emerged that Haggard, while pastor at New Life, had an inappropriate relationship with a male attendee. Haggard's successor, Brady Boyd, said the church reached a six figure settlement with the man, who was in his early 20s at the time. The man said the contact was "not consensual."
The family jacuzzi photo is creepy especially with gay dad and denial mom kissing.
This is not a fake photo. It was part of a GQ interview from 2011.
The fact that he and his wife would even consider posing for this picture is an example of their poor judgment and denial. Note the slutty daughter pose.
Haggard is still a very fuckable piece. Skull-fuckable, actually. Can't you just imagine pounding his epiglottis to Hell and back while he begs The Lard to spare your mortal soul? And as I cum, I tell him I'm Catholic. Oh Yeahh!!
Who's gonna buy that woman's book? Fraus? I doubt it. Fags? Certainly not.
Fundamentalists who hate the gays, R39.
You have to wonder which of his sons is gay. Do all his kids think he's totally gay or do they buy into the happy marriage the parents are attempting to paint?
Wait, I'm confused. In 2007 he underwent 3 weeks of therapy and according to published newspaper reports, was "completely heterosexual."
You mean he LIED!?!!?!?
Denver Post Headline, 2/6/07: "Haggard Says He Is 'Completely Heterosexual'"
CBS News Headline, 1/28/11: "Ted Haggard Says He's Bisexual"
He's probably a celibate gay man. Lots of gay men who hate who they are, are celibate. He probably cuddles with his wife and is her gay best friend. Lots of women love this emotional attachment she's probably not even into sex, so it's a "win-win" for both. Not for either, really. But, it works for them.
Agreed, I imagine she'd be relieved to avoid intercourse with a barebacked tina bottom.
