The ex-gays got another one. Michael Glatze opens a surprising WorldNetDaily column, “Homosexuality came easy to me, because I was already weak”.
The column’s so surprising, because Glatze once edited Young Gay America, a job that garnered him seemingly endless praise and a number of awards, including Equality Forum’s National Role Model Award.
Being such a role model took its toll and, apparently, led Glatze to the so-called truth: homosexuality’s nothing but a false, lustful lifestyle.
Well, that and a bad case of the shits.
…I’d developed a growing relationship with God, thanks to a debilitating bout with intestinal cramps caused by the upset stomach-inducing behaviors I’d been engaged in.
Soon, I began to understand things I’d never known could possibly be real, such as the fact that I was leading a movement of sin and corruption – which is not to sound as though my discovery was based on dogma, because decidedly it was not.
I came to the conclusions on my own.
It became clear to me, as I really thought about it – and really prayed about it – that homosexuality prevents us from finding our true self within. We cannot see the truth when we’re blinded by homosexuality.
We believe, under the influence of homosexuality, that lust is not just acceptable, but a virtue. But there is no homosexual “desire” that is apart from lust.
In denial of this fact, I’d fought to erase such truth at all costs, and participated in the various popular ways of taking responsibility out of human hands for challenging the temptations of lust and other behaviors. I was sure – thanks to culture and world leaders – that I was doing the right thing.
Driven to look for truth, because nothing felt right, I looked within. Jesus Christ repeatedly advises us not to trust anybody other than Him. I did what He said, knowing that the Kingdom of God does reside in the heart and mind of every man.
Now that he’s “found himself,” Glatze wants the world to know that homosexuality’s “superficiality and lust-inspired attractions” lead straight to hell. And Glatze hopes we can all recover from our “repulsive” sins. We hope someone knocks some sense in Glatze’s head. Or sets him up with Charlene Cothran – they’d make a great couple.
