The healing process since the scandal broke has been so dramatic that Ted says some of the things he said on The Oprah Show just a few months ago are no longer true. "[My thoughts about men] have diminished a lot," he says. "I don't have near the thoughts now that I had then."
When Ted does have thoughts about men, he doesn't get angry with himself, he says. "I think Jesus came for all of us, and I think all of humanity is messed up. … I don't think [God] was ever against me. I don't think he's against homosexuals or heterosexuals or people that are wherever they are in their process," he says. "I think God is for people and he wants all of us to be improving all the time."
