Close friends and family of Joe Simpson claim the youth pastor does not plan on coming out anytime soon, despite reports that he had engaged in sexual relations with two men.

Mr. Simpson doesn’t want to cause further embarrassment to his soon-to-be ex-wife Tina and daughters Jessica and Ashlee, according to a source close to the family.

He would prefer to remain silent on the matter, and is afraid that his reputation as a God-loving Christian will be slightly tarnished.

“Joe doesn’t want to publicly admit he’s gay,” an insider exclusively told RadarOnline.com.

“Despite his alleged dalliances with gay men, he’s still a devout family man. He knows he’s deeply embarrassed Tina, Jessica and Ashlee, especially by the way he’s been outed.

“As a matter of respect to them, he’s decided that he won’t be commenting about his sexuality; it’s a private discussion for their ears only.

“He feels terrible for hurting Tina in such a way, especially because their relationship was built upon the foundation of a beautiful friendship.

“Joe’s also afraid of destroying his reputation as a pastor and a Christian. In his youth group he spoke against homosexuality and taught his kids that it was wrong. He would look pretty hypocritical if he came out now,” the insider revealed.

Why Sloan From ‘Entourage’ Is Still The Wife Every Guy Wishes He Had

It’s completely natural for guys to never get over their first love.
