After years of attempt to reverse homosexuality.
The ex-gay movement has not prove itself to be
successful in any way. There were never any
official statistic released to support their
claim that such therapeutic method is effective.
Their claim rely largely on
info-mercial like testimonies by
random individuals. Many of such success stories
are of extremely disturbed individuals whose
lives are "messed up" regardless of
their sexuality. Simply because they happen to be
gay, or lesbian, does not in anyway say anything
about the need to reverse homosexuality in
general. The use of such testimonies is like
having a reborn prostitute trying to convince the
world that heterosexual sex is bad. There is a
difference between good sexual conduct and bad
sexual conduct, and the distinction cannot be
grounded on sexual orientation.
Ex-gay therapy should not be entertained.
Although, morally speaking, there is nothing
wrong about an innocent attempt to change one's
sexuality into the more-common heterosexuality.
After all, being able to have your own children,
and having a larger pool of potential partners to
choose from, can be potentially beneficial in a
practical sense, BUT there are too many down
falls and risks involved in such attempts:
1. There is no indication that such attempts will
be successful. If failed, the emotional trauma
for the person and the person's friends and
family can be very painful.
2. Such attempt cast negative light
on people who choose to honor their sexuality.
Attempt to change implies that other homosexual's
love is less, which is not true.
If such attempt appears to be successful but not
really, one risk destroying a family later on in
life. The wife/husband and the children would
suffer emotional trauma. It is not fair for the
family and the person. Family should be builted
on love, not wishful, emotional gamble.
One may simply loose the opportunity of true
God created who we are, deliberately changing
one's sexuality can be a sign of resentment
toward the mystery of God's creation.
There are better things to do in life rather than
spending enormous amount of time doing therapy
just so you can sleep with a person of different
sex. Changing you sexuality is not a service to
God, but to self. Life is too precious to be used
The world in general detested gays and lesbians.
One is not witnessing the power and the unbias of
God's love by running away from being who you
are. By honoring what God has given to you, one
may gain more compassion and understanding, and
opportunity to service.
In short, since we know that emotionally
fulfilling and spiritually nurturing relationship
is possible for gays and lesbians, escaping from
such a life simply stirs up too much denial and
negative energy for it to be justified. God has
made you who you are with a purpose. What God has
made clean, you must not call profane. - The
Bible, Act 10:15
May you find love and peace.
