ted-haggardI believe we need to have equality for people under our civil government. And we need to do whatever is necessary so that people are treated equally… Right now we have inequality in America for heterosexual monogamous people in contrast to same-sex-attraction people, and that needs to be worked out by our government—and we need to press that.

Now that’s a totally different subject than what we talk about in a Bible study in a church for practicing believers… I have been a supporter of civil unions since 1993, and I have been an advocate for that, avidly, and have been horribly misrepresented in the press as being a hypocrite on that issue.”
