Haggard's colleagues knew he was gay

If you thought it a bit strange that no one (other than Mike Jones) knew that Ted Haggard was gay, your instincts, of course, were correct. We have no way of knowing how many people knew, but we can now confirm that Rev. Louis Sheldon, founder and chairman of the Traditional Values Coalition, knew. He knew, and he was upset that Haggard called homosexuality "genetic." "I said, no it isn’t," Sheldon claims. "But I just knew he was covering up. They need to say that."

Sheldon says that several members of the evangelican movement knew Haggard was gay, "but we weren't sure just how to deal with it."

Haggard was president of the National Association of Evangelicals.

The Traditional Values Ministry, by the way, in its program, "Those Struggling With Same-Sex Attractions and Other Gender Identity Disorders," features a, ahem, "Cross Ministry."
