We also attest that our attractions do not dictate our relationships.
While we may not have a choice about our attractions, we do have a choice about our relationships.
I wish many more would step forward publicly, but I certainly understand why they choose not to.
March 27, 2017 (The Public Discourse) -- When Christian rock star Trey Pearson announced he was coming out of the closet and separating from his wife and their two children after seven and a half years of marriage, he said that his wife had been his “biggest supporter” and that “she just hugged me and cried and said how proud of me she was.” If this account is exactly true, it is troubling.
Think about the degree of social decay required—especially within Christianity—for a Christian wife to be so conditioned by popular culture that she immediately congratulates her husband for abandoning her and their children, rather than reaching out for help to preserve their marriage and family.
Had I followed my own desires and impulses toward other men, my life would be very different today. Our stories are not based on “reparative therapy,” so-called attempts to “pray away the gay,” or other efforts to sexual orientation.
Rather, we fully accept the reality of our same-sex attractions and fully affirm our individual self-worth, just as we are.
