Presbyterian Church, Thirteen Years, Five Years discussed on Townhall Weekend Journal

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

In the gay community i didn't try to get rid of my experiences with same sex attraction i wasn't interested in change i went to seminary openly gay i was in the presbyterian church which is an affirming branch of denominations and so it really was after i graduated from seminary that i began pursuing god on a different level and in that journey with guide began questioning what was the truth about my life experiences and ultimately kind of let go of that identity and over time experience change in my desires i've been married to a man for thirteen years and i don't think about being a lesbian i don't struggle with my sexuality at all and so the the suggestion that at least for women there's never change or it's not possible s really wrong in my opinion no sexual desire for women i only have sexual desire for men and so finally i had to tell somebody and my parents said hey you know what you want and we love you anyway what do you want and i said well i i don't want these desires i'm going to be able to find a wife someday and and so they got me into see a therapist and yeah i saw him for five years it kept me alive i wanted to follow what i felt like god is inviting me into plus i just wanted to have kids i wanted to have my own life in that way and you know this bill also bans books right and any kind of helps and there weren't any books back then so i snuck into the christian bookstore with a ball cap on to see if there were any helps there and there weren't any but thank god there was the therapy there was counseling heterosexual counseling that i could find back then this what's so scary now is so many people go through a period in their life where they are on a journey sexually they're questioning their sexuality and to completely removed from society all.
