Sheldon claims he knew Haggard was gay; unclear whether he knew Exhausted and Fatigued were bi

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images Picture-4-22 1-2The Traditional Values Coalition's Louis Sheldon (pic.) has revealed that he and "a lot" of other top Evangelicals knew about Ted Haggard's closeted homosexuality before Mike Jones' recent revelations, but they chose to remain silent. Sheldon's quoted by The Jewish Week as saying:

Months before a male prostitute publicly revealed Haggard’s secret relationship with him, and the reverend’s drug use as well, “Ted and I had a discussion,” explained Sheldon, who said Haggard gave him a telltale signal then: “He said homosexuality is genetic. I said, no it isn’t. But I just knew he was covering up. They need to say that.

So why didn't Sheldon, a man who lashes out if one so much as farts in a queer manner, reveal his thoughts about Haggard's sexuality until now? Well, we're not entirely sure, but we'd imagine it's for the same reason he's yet to say anything about the countless other closeted hypocrites of whom he's likely aware: it's only convenient for him to condemn when it helps his side politically. Obviously.

But as for Sheldon's claim that we gays "need to say" that homosexuality is at least partially genetic, he couldn't be more correct. After all, we do feel obliged to always speak the truth.
