Michael Glatze claims that he’s no longer gay.
Homosexuality came easy to me, because I was already weak.
My mom died when I was 19. My father had died when I was 13. At an early age, I was already confused about who I was and how I felt about others.
My confusion about “desire” and the fact that I noticed I was “attracted” to guys made me put myself into the “gay” category at age 14. At age 20, I came out as gay to everybody else around me.
Knowing no one who I could approach with my questions and my doubts, I turned to God; 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.
Um…here’s a bit of advice: if you got intestinal cramps while engaging in sex, you’re doing it wrong.
This poor person obviously has issues with being gay. And with being religious. He’s battling the programming God gave him with the programming that some church is pounding into him, and he’s going to end up in some sad state of denial for the rest of his life, thinking that prayer will overcome his natural order of things. He also conflates being gay with lust. Obviously he has never turned on Spike TV or seen the average commercial to notice that lust isn’t just for queers; it’s an equal opportunity element, and humans — gay or straight — respond to it in surprisingly the same way. It sells.
I’ve met my fair share of people who claim they’re no longer gay. Some have even married women. (And it’s funny that they always seem to want to get in touch with me and get together…just “hang out.” Uh huh.) When I ask them if they’re happy they instantly answer Yes!, but they say they’re ever on guard against the temptations of “the flesh.” It’s not easy being straight, y’know.
But if you have to be afraid of it…and yourself, being gay is the least of your worries. You’ve let some real issues with your inability to mature and become a fully-formed human who doesn’t need to be on guard against themselves. It’s the people who try to oppress their human nature who turn into the freaks and the pervs.
