One of four ministers who oversaw three weeks of intensive counseling for the Rev. Ted Haggard said the disgraced minister emerged convinced that he is "completely heterosexual."The news today is driving me nuts. First there's the crazed astronaut who drove 900 miles with a diaper on to confront a rival (which Chani has written about). And then there's this minister who is convinced he is "completely heterosexual."
The implication here of "completely heterosexual" is "completely normal." In my little corner of the world, "completely heterosexual" doesn't exist. I believe everyone is somewhere along the bi continuum. It's a big gray line, and we all fall somewhere on it. You can agree or disagree, it doesn't matter to me, and it's unlikely to change my mind. Because just like he's sure "completely heterosexual" means "completely normal," I'm sure what I think is true too. I'd tell anyone who thought they were "completely gay" the same thing, but probably with a lot more compassion and understanding.
