So Dan and I were watching the 700 Club tonight on the Family Channel or whatever. Now for those of you who don't know, the 700 club is like the pseudo-news for God-fearing Christian Republican douchebags. (not to say that every God-fearing Christian Republican is a douchebag)((okay, so they are)). But anyway, we already know how I feel about both Christians and Republicans.
So anyways; on the 700 club, they have these terrible news stories involving all types of Jesus sitings and Christlove. And one story was exceptionally atrocious.
There was a story about this man who converted to heterosexuality twenty five years ago because of Jesus. BECAUSE OF JESUS! WAIT! Maybe I stressed the wrong point there; this guy converted to heterosexuality He wrote a book about it called Strength in Weakness. It tells of his valiant stuggle with "sexual sin" and how he overcame homosexuality to get married and have three wonderful children.
...And now, he's teaching classes on how wrong it is to be a homosexual and he's "helping" people overcome their "sexual sins" and draw out their inner homosexual demons. He's making homosexual people feel ashamed for their own sexuality, and letting them know it's fucking okay to be ashamed, and that it's not their fault!! Fucking "converting" people left and motherfucking right. Does anyone see how fucking wrong this is?!?
I can't even put into words how terrible this news story was, or how angry it made me. Even though we couldn't help but fucking laugh at how absurd it all was, and how absolutely seriously these people were taking themselves.
First of all, you're born gay. It may take you a little while to figure it out, but what the hell doesn't? It doesn't mean that you're made to be gay, or tricked into it by satan! If this fucking guy just decided all of a sudden twenty-five years ago that he did not want to be gay anymore, and that he could find a woman to marry, HE WAS NEVER GAY. I am a heterosexual male and I have no attraction to men whatsoever, that is my sexual identity. If you are a homosexual male, you have no attraction at all towards women. Just because one motherfucker from the midwest decides his own personal sexual identity is not alright with him anymore because it pisses Jesus off was either never gay in the first place; or is gay and is completely disregarding who he really is and pretending to be "normal" according to society and Christianity's standards to fit in.
Who you are is who you are, and no one should ever tell you any different. If they do, they are a bigot, and should have their nose sliced off. If you're so fucking ignorant that you really think it's wrong to be born a certain way, just because some religion tells you it is, then I'm sorry, but you're about 3 steps away from being a nazi. Furthermore, if you're not comfortable with yourself, FINE! you'll always be fucking awkward and uncomfortable, but DO NOT impose your holier than thou final solution ideals upon others and tell them that they should be fucking ashamed of the way they are. that's all.
Sorry this was a rant, but it's a touchy subject and it made me so mad...
