Do I go onto Exodus International’s site or ex-gay pages and tell them that I believe that if there was a hell, they would be some of the first people through the fiery gates because they are soul-raping innocent victims?
No! I do not! (Granted, I do blog publicly and say such things but the point is…)
Cult members chase after those who find freedom.
Since the radio interview Monday night, I have felt chased.
There haven’t been any direct attacks (yet) but there have been several posts and comments that I’ve banned from my author page because they were geared at spreading the lie that homosexuals can or should be changed into some mutant heterosexual expression sanctified by a gender-obsessed god.
I reject these tactics and state that while I feel chased by the ex-gay cult and by the memory of the person you wanted me to become, the truth is…
I am chaste… undefiled, free from obscenity, pure and full of virtue not because of anything I’ve done but…
Because of the Divine who purifies my intention and reminds me that the reason I’m telling this story again is because love matters.
To the victims of ex-gay therapy who serve in leadership roles and recruit others into the cult, I want you to know that healthy, happy, whole sexuality is available to you… and you don’t have to crucify yourself to get it.
There is a relationship that is greater than the need to be right.
There is a love that is greater than the need to be right.
There is the right to love and be loved just as you are.
I have that right.
And from the deepest parts of who I am, I do this work so that you too will know, you have that right too.
Don’t let them molest your identity any longer.
You are born beautiful, your expressions are Divine and your thirst for truth will be met when you realize that it’s already inside of you.
As you are.
Oh and… um…
If you keep posting lies on my page, you will be banned because not only is my page/blog a no-hate zone, genocide is wrong and I won’t let anyone know how they can find out more about supporting you in killing off the LGBTQ community.
To my blog and Facebook Family, I want you to know that I need to go offline for a few days to recover from this “coming out” again. Going inward is a journey towards god but also fuels the security that I need to nourish and keep going. Keep sharing your insights and stories with one another and feel free to share the interview!
If the above link doesn’t work, this will also get you to my interview on Open Minds Open Hearts:
Keep the emails coming and more than anything else, keep trusting that whether we can prove if there is a God or not, we most certainly know that something Divine would welcome, bless and celebrate all people just as they are, no exceptions.
