From today’s Denver Post:
The Rev. Ted Haggard emerged from three weeks of intensive counseling convinced he is “completely heterosexual” and told an oversight board that his sexual contact with men was limited to his accuser.
It should be noted that in the Spitzer Study of ex-gays, a study so overwhelmingly positive it’s been accused of being inaccurate, it took most people at least TWO YEARS to achieve this.
More after the jump.
The story continues:
“He is completely heterosexual,” [The Rev. Tim] Ralph said. “That is something he discovered. It was the acting- out situations where things took place. It wasn’t a constant thing.”
Why Haggard chose to act out in that manner is something Haggard and his advisers are trying to discern, Ralph said.
This he’s heterosexual with a homosexual problem of acting out sounds an awful lot like NARTH president Joe Nicolosi who said:
“There is no such thing as a homosexual. Homosexual is a description of a condition, it’s not a description of the person. We are all heterosexual, some heterosexuals have a homosexual problem.”
Much as I too was able to convince myself I was a heterosexual with a homosexual problem that could be dealt with whenever attractions came up, we shall see how long Haggard is willing to keep up the exhausting charade after the honeymoon ends.
