And the world of psychology eagerly awaits his gifted insight.

Apparently, all it takes is 3 weeks to go from gay to straight. And Ted Haggard is cured, ladies and gentlepeople.

Among other things, the overseers urged Haggard to enter a 12-step program for sexual addiction, Ware said.

Ralph said three weeks of counseling at an undisclosed Arizona treatment center helped Haggard immensely and left Haggard sure of one thing.

"He is completely heterosexual," Ralph said. "That is something he discovered. It was the acting- out situations where things took place. It wasn't a constant thing."

I can't even begin to go into all the things that are wrong and irresponsible and just plain stupid about that statement.

Now he and his wife plant to move to Iowa or Missouri and each pursue Masters Degrees in psychology.

London said he was not surprised Haggard was considering the psychological field.

"Many of us that go into the healing, helping professions do so out of some sort of dysfunction or traumatic event in our lives, and we want to do what we can to help other people avoid what we've gone through," he said. "He is certainly gifted and intelligent and has an intuitive side to him. And he has life experience. Those are good credentials."

Dear God, help us all.

Sullivan seems to think we should be asking Haggard the really tough questions.
