Disgraced former evangelist/methhead Ted Haggard is finally (sort of!) ready to admit that he is not straight, no matter how much gay-bashing he indulged in to prove it. In a new GQ profile, he says he's bisexual, sort of.
Haggard resigned from New Life Church after it was revealed he paid his male meth dealer for hand jobs, but he's still married to his wife Gayle, and even has a whole TLC reality show where he pretends to be completely satisfied with their marriage. When asked about his orientation, he responded: "Here's where I really am on this issue... I think that probably, if I were 21 in this society, I would identify myself as a bisexual." However, since he is 54 with a family, he is not identifying himself as a bisexual:
I'm 54, with children, with a belief system, and I can have enforced boundaries in my life. Just like you're a heterosexual but you don't have sex with every woman that you're attracted to, so I can be who I am and exclusively have sex with my wife and be perfectly satisfied.
Hmmm... so it seems that Haggard is coming out as a closeted bisexual? This makes our brain hurt!
