Ted and Gayle Haggard spoke with Joy Behar on Friday about their new church.
They weren't sure how many people would show up. Behar asked them if gays would be welcome.
Said Haggard: "Absolutely. So will people that don't pray enough. So will people that don't love enough. So will people that are overwieght. So will people that are underweight. So will people that have low IQs and high IQs. Humanity needs love and needs God and so we're a gathering together of sinners who are gratefully redeemed. No self-righteous people will be there, I'm pretty sure."
Snaps Behar: "Homosexuality is not a sin."
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP…
So how many did show up? 160, and at least one gay:
"[Mikey] Manschot told the St. James congregants that, while others ridicule him for his sexuality, Haggard is accepting.'I like Ted’s church because it’s open to everyone,' Manschot said after the service."
