Quote# 70372Gayle Haggard: My husband Ted Haggard is free from homosexual compulsions - for real this time.
Ted Haggard's wife is standing by her man, no matter how many times he may have had homosexual affairs.
Gayle Haggard appeared on the "Today" show on Wednesday to talk about her new book, "Why I Stayed: The Choices I Made In My Darkest Hour," and declared that her one-time Evangelical superstar husband was “cured” of his homosexual compulsions.
"Our sexuality is conditioned, and we can be conditioned in any number of ways," she told Meredith Vieira.
"Ted was dealing with certain compulsions that were unwanted."
However, through therapy, she claims those compulsions -- which she said Ted had suffered from most of his life -- were gone.
"But that's not true for everybody," she added. "That's his story."
Haggard admitted that her husband, who once led a church of nearly 14,000 worshipers, had a homosexual relationship early in their marriage.
