One morning at the gym, while watching TV, Mike discovered that Ted Haggard was the true identity of one his regular sex clients.
He knew he needed to come forward to expose the minister and his church’s hypocrisy on gays. At one point in time Ted Haggard condemned same-sex loving folks despite having had numerous affairs with men himself.
Mike Jones’ tell-all book “I Had to Say Something: The Art of Ted Haggards Fall” explicitly details the sex he had with Haggard which included sex toys and even a stars and stripe thong. Yeow!
The story caused a huge rift in the powerful New Life Church, as members were forced to examine their own prejudice against same-sex relationships and even question their own religion.
Two years after the controversy, Ted Haggard and his church are back in the news as more people have come forward to expose the church’s cover up in the light of HBO’s new documentary “The Trials of Ted Haggard.”
Mike is also selling an erotic painting of himself on eBay! Hurry up, the bidding ends on February 12th
Listen as we talk with Mike about why he came forward in the first place, why he felt rejected by gay people and where we all go from here.
