Strugglers: the homosexualist blind-spot? March 21, 2011Posted by Rasheed Eldin in Ex-Gay, Homosexualists.
Exodus International, a Christian organisation, has produced a smartphone app that has drawn predictable criticism from homosexualist quarters. According to David Allison of Outrage: “It creates the wrong attitude if you try to persuade people there is a choice and it can be cured like an ailment or an illness, as if you need to be. It isn’t: you are born with it, live with it and die with it.”
Allow me to give a voice to someone who would, in the homosexualist paradigm, be classed as “gay”, but whose opinions, feelings and preferences in life are considered by such campaigners as irrelevant. This is a comment from a young man on the StraightStruggle group:
Perhaps someone should tell David Allison that, conversely, he is creating the wrong attitude by telling people they are born with it, live with it and die with it.
The irony is that when it comes to people seeking growth and healing beyond homosexuality, people like him do not offer the same options for freedom of choice and expression that he would demand for those like himself who wish to embrace the homosexual lifestyle. It’s completely hypocritical. In a society where I can legally pay for a sex change, drink my liver out and have unprotected sex with a stranger – the same evil forces that would support such behaviours would prevent me from seeking psychological growth into my existing biological potential.
David Allison, you were born with the potential to make sperm, you live your life making sperm, and you will die making sperm. Do you think your body’s trying to tell you something? 😉
Why do the gays hate the ex-gays so much? What deep nerve is our presence striking that makes them so vicious in condemning us?
It’s a damn good question.
