"There's a part of my life that is so repulsive and dark that I have been warring against it for all of my adult life."
-Rev. Ted Haggard in a letter to his congregation
You would think that this revelation about Mr. Haggard would make more people believe in the biological basis of homosexuality. Here is a man who wanted not to be gay with a passion that evolved into public, though veiled, condemnation of himself.
How terribly sad to be repulsed by who you are, to hate yourself. Surely at least some of his followers will know that if he could have changed his sexual orientation, he would have. And perhaps if they grow in that understanding, they will grow in their compassion and tolerance as well.
