"Religion will become smaller, "deeper", and more traditional. The megachurch and megamillionaire ministers might have seen "the peak". Hopefully they saved all of those millions from the book deals.

"Haggard told the GQ reporter that if he were 21, he might call himself a bisexual. But at age 54, he's not going to do that. Especially after his wife published a book called "Why I Stayed," and after he's now turned into an insurance salesman and founded his new St. James Church. Haggard says he's set boundaries for himself and staying heterosexual and monogamous with his wife Gayle."
