A Sensible Man’s Departure Letter
I’m really sorry.
I believe in these people and this cause but I can’t be involved this time around.
As a same-sex attracted men I thought I had a contribution that needed to be made but like other same-sex attracted guys and girls who have stood against the LGBT machinery, I paid a price. I know if they find out who I am they will destroy me, and it feels like I came close last time.
I want kids to not have to grow up under lies. I was lied to about sexual development, and I experimented and reinforced it as a result. It’s a tough thing growing up in any time with relational deficits in your life. What it would be like now with all the pornography and the way people argue about truth and morals not being real, well that just blows my mind. I’d hate to be a kid nowadays.
But I want them to be spared the pain I had. At the least I want them to have a chance at a better life. At the most, I want them to experience the new life Jesus (and some church communities) provides sincere disciples, the grace he gives but also the reward he provides as you move forward in his strength. Love and peace.
I have a much better life, but it’s because I found out some Truth and I found some friends and I also realised that there was going to be pain involved. I was willing to pay a price, be humble and my life has been a lot of hard work from the start til now. Before I was exhausted kidding myself with lies I’d come to believe and the life I was trying to live. Later it was pretty tiring having to change. Now I’ve got peace I never had.
I’ve allowed the team to use my old content, even though I requested some changes because I was a much angrier man back then. I’m still angry, but as you get older you get more used to dealing with. I’ve softened some words, and I’ve backed down on some things that even though they were true people wiser than me have said that some levels of truth just can’t be handled.
So I trust these people, and I ask you to give them a fair hearing. They’re good people and they really do want the best not just for the straight community but also for the same-sex attracted one. People call the them haters but I’ve seen nothing but love. Sure they misunderstand some things, but that’s normal.
Back when I was helping I used to sit and talk and they would convert my thoughts into articles. I showed them the research I found and asked them to help me communicate in an effective way. This note I’ve asked them to leave raw and simple.
I hope you enjoy what they bring you and I hope whatever value you get from the words I posted years ago is helpful.
Regards and in your service,
A Sensible man
