Haggards On Oprah

Ted Haggard and his wife Gayle appeared on Oprah yesterday and what a festival of nonsense and doubletalk it was. Haggard isn’t straight, he isn’t gay, he isn’t bi, he’s just “got issues”. God made him this way, but God wants him to resist. Oh, and a monogamous heterosexual relationship is still the only way to go. For her part, Gayle trots out the old “desire vs. behavior” theme – if ol’ Teddy is only thinking about mansex, not doing it, then he’s straight. I’ll have to say that Oprah called them on their bullshit at least twice.
