    Has shifted much if you still refer to them as "monsters" and "recruited sodomites"

    It's not a trend either, god forbid you try to understand *why* someone would come out once it's safe to do so. It's the natural state of things in a world that isn't quite so hostile

    Don't forget the man who raped him as a child. What does the rapist get? Never mind. I already know what he gets. He gets ignored.

    I'd probably say that accounts for less than 0.1% of gay men. Ted Haggard enjoyed the sex he had as a 7 year old boy. I doubt that he was going to call the police.

    Statutory rape rarely gets reported. The 0.1% figure might be too low. I do not believe Ted Haggard would have became gay on his own. He was recruited and I don't like that.
    Where the hell do you come up with this? Did ted haggard actually say that? Not that we should believe anything he has to say on the matter, but a 7 year old enjoying rape...

    It says quite enough that you consider the worst part of being raped at age 7 to be "turning gay" instead of the trauma and abuse of the rape itself

    I've no idea who this Haggard person is, but how the hell could you possibly know if a seven-year-old would or would not turn out to be gay? Do you have some scary mystic powers of prophecy?

    So far as I know there is no scientific evidence whatsoever that a male adult molesting a male child causes that child to become gay.

    I call bull**** on any claims of that nature, no matter who makes them.

    The molester/rapist should get life in prison, or the death penalty, in all such cases.

    The Biblical view is that people who brag about their sin are reprobates that serve no purpose but to destroy themselves and everyone in their pathway. The Bible is a book. The Bible doesn't have the capacity to change. True Christianity does not and will never allow sinners to proudly proclaim their sins. Liars who pretend they are Christian may tolerate this kind of thing. That's fine but it doesn't make them Christian or Bible based. The Bible says what it says.

    My worldview can change. The Bible will never change. If you hate the Bible then throw it away. Don't take that out on me. I don't hate people who proudly proclaim their sin. I have strong feelings against fakers who misrepresent the Christian religion. I'm not even a Christian but I still think if you are going to be a Christian then you should be one. Otherwise I have strong feelings against the person who misrepresents Christianity. I have no respect for that at all.

    Yes. He did say that he enjoyed sex with a grown man when he was 7 years old. Yes. He did say that.

    It was consensual. Ted Haggard never felt violated. Did you even watch the video?
