“New Christians”- The “ex-gay” road to salvation?
Definition of New Christian | -Someone who’s only been into church for a month but suddenly knows EVERYTHING about the word. Amen!
Yesterday while watching Fox News and enjoying Chick-fil-A (I’m so sure), I stumbled upon a link that my good friend sent to me to a twitter page where a girl was spewing hate and claiming to be an “ex-gay”. After browsing her timeline, I decided to address her and ask her a series of questions based off of the information she posted in her bio. The outcome was interesting to say the LEAST.
Let me start by saying that my problem is not with Christians. My problem is with people who make gays their “whipping boy” so they can hide behind their own sheer veil of LIES, and pawn their TRUE feelings off on other people. These ex-gays who condemn the LGBT community and couldn’t “find Christ” while they were gay baffle me. Not only does it baffle me but it hurts my feelings that people are so comfortable with making other’s feel uncomfortable just because they cant come to terms with their sexuality.
I have news for ex-gays. If you’re an ex-gay either you were never gay to begin with or your still gay and your hiding in a glass closet. Either way we see you and we wish you’d stop spreading lies! You cannot “PRAY THE GAY AWAY”. It’s illogical, it’s immoral, and it’s harmful to even try. While it may be somewhat of a fad to do the whole “gay thing” now, it wasn’t a few years ago and the majority of people that I know personally didn’t choose to be gay.
I remember the first time I had feelings for a girl. My first girl crush was Stacey Dash. I swear the move Clueless changed my life. The first time I really thought about kissing a girl I was around ten years old. I would invite my friends over for a weekend slumber party and then try to play house with them (I was a mack even back then). That wasn’t very successful but the point im trying to make is that I had feelings for the same sex at a very young age and they weren’t unnatural to me. I’m 26 years old and sixteen years ago there was no Noahs Arc, no L Word, no Internet, and no openly gay celebrities who were accepted with open arms into main stream media. Where did I get those feelings from? You tell me.
God loves EVERYONE and if he didn’t make gay people they wouldn’t be here. If you’re gay you can still have a relationship with god and attend a church who accepts you whole heartedly. Don’t ever feel like you can’t have a relationship with god because of your sexual orientation AND, don’t ever be upset with him for making you the way you are. He doesn’t make mistakes!
As for the weirdo on twitter, she deleted her twitter AND, we found out she was using fake pictures and that she’s actually a LESBIAN who’s posing as a fake ex-gay to try and mislead her church group……..and the plot thickens.
