Don’t Ask This Pastor To Have Gay Sex Ever Again! He’s Done With All That!

AL.com recently sat down with Rev. Dr. Wesley Hill (pictured), author of Washed and Waiting: Reflections on Christian Faithfulness and Homosexuality, to discuss this hotly debated question.

Hill is a self-hating openly gay man who has chosen a life of celibacy because, he says, “I believe that the Bible and the Christian tradition don’t endorse same-sex sexual activity.”

Instead, he says, he seeks “a life of hospitable community, deep friendship, and genuine love.” (Evidently, he doesn’t consider gay love “genuine.” Perhaps he just hasn’t met the right guy yet.)

Hill calls celibacy “a worthy calling” and a pathway “that the Bible and the Christian tradition have recognized for the stewarding and purifying of our wayward human desires.” (By “purifying” we can only assume he actually means to say “suffocating.”)

Naturally, he’s also opposed to gay marriage.

“The historic Christian teaching is that marriage is meant to be a lifelong covenantal union between a man and a woman that is open to bearing and raising children,” he rambles.”If someone wanted to enter a same-sex union (or was already in one), I would encourage them to consider whether their love for each other could be expressed without sex.”

Better yet, Hill says, if you’re a gay man, why not simply deny yourself real love (and ruin someone else’s life in the process) by marrying an unsuspecting woman? Your everyday existence may become a living hell, but at least you’ll go to Heaven when you die.

“It’s important to say that some gay Christians have married spouses of the opposite sex,” Hill says. “I wouldn’t want to set that up as some kind of norm, but I also don’t want to erase those people’s stories either.”

Because we all know how happily those fairytales have ended.
