PageOneQ has the response of Mike Jones, the escort who exposed mega-church pastor Ted Haggard’s same-sex philandering.
Jones responds to two claims made by Rev. Tim Ralph, a member of Haggard’s restoration team.
Ralph claimed, “He is completely heterosexual. It was the acting-out situations where things took place. It wasn’t a constant thing.”
In response to one of Haggard’s counselor’s claims that Haggard’s activities were not a “constant thing,” Jones explained that he could only speak to the time he spent with Haggard and that had an ongoing sexual relationship with the minister and that their time together “indicated a gay man to me.”
Ralph also claimed that Jones was Haggard’s sole male contact. “If we’re going to be proved wrong, somebody else is going to come forward, and that usually happens really quickly,” he said. “We’re into this thing over 90 days and it hasn’t happened.”
Jones also shared that he had heard from two other individuals that claimed they had encounters with Haggard. Those accusers, Jones asserted, have chosen to remain anonymous for fear of losing their jobs.
