Ted Haggard: I’m Bisexual

Not sure if it counts as coming out after you get caught with a drug-dealing former male escort, but Ted Haggard has announced in a GQ profile that he is “probably what the kids call bisexual.” Haggard, the founder of the evangelical Christian New Life Church, resigned from not only New Life but also the National Association of Evangelicals after he admitted that he had done drugs and had an affair with a crystal meth dealer and former male escort named Mike Jones. Despite coming forward about his sexuality, Haggard denied having “sex sex” with Jones, saying he only masturbated while taking crystal meth. Haggard has formed his own church, St. James, since leaving the megachurch he founded—but he still is bitter toward his former church, saying, "I used to think the church was the light of the world. But I've completely lost my faith in it."
