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.
That is according to one of the disgraced pastor's overseers, who on Monday revealed new details about where Haggard has been and where he is headed.
The Rev. Tim Ralph of Larkspur also said the four-man oversight board strongly urged Haggard to go into secular work instead of Christian ministry if Haggard and his wife follow through on plans to earn master's degrees in psychology.
GOI: Does he get some kind of certificate now to show everyone that he passed the brain washing course?? Obviously they "cured" him!! There is NO WAY that they would go through their "program" and then say, "Well we failed. Jesus wasn't up to the task and he is incurably gay." Of course their "program" succeeded and it's a "miracle." What a bunch of hocus-pocus non-sense.
Would you want a repressed paster in denial working as your psychologist or psychiatrist?? How ironic that a repressed individual in denial wants to become involved in psychology to helps others with their denial and repression issues, etc!! This guy just sinks deeper and deeper into the bog of dysfunction and identity crisis. There is a part of me that really feels compassion and sympathy for this man. Talk about stress!! To "cure himself" he now has to live an even bigger lie then he was living before. I'm sorry but you don't just have a gay love affair and then claim later that you are "cured" from having those thoughts and urges ever again!!
"I'm glad that's behind him. Now he can get back to condeming gays to hell."
"I realize faith-based science doesn't actually NEED proof but I wonder, how exactly did they test him to make sure he was straight again?"
