DO YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW ME? | The Orthodox Homosexual
Although I’m still very much socially conservative, the norms of social conservatism are not my god. The most noble aspect of being conservative should be the value of life. Valuing life means fighting against violence, unnecessary abortion, and poverty, and discouraging lifestyles that lead to emptiness and despair - promiscuous gay pop-culture included; but valuing life also entails being realistic about the homosexual orientation. I still promote the development of safe therapies for people who are homosexual but desire to be heterosexual, but such therapies, in their current forms, do not work for most people. A life of celibacy or a one-sided sexual relationship with a heterosexual woman are simply not options for most homosexuals. More than a few who attempt such paths suffer from a chronic struggle with depression and suicidal thoughts. More than a few turn those thoughts into action, and that's an understatement. I do not want to be one of them. I'm 31 years old now, and this year I suffered from recurrent suicidal impulses one time too many. Married to a woman or not, I can not continue to 'live' this way.
There is much to be said regarding this topic, and I certainly intend to say more. My only intention in what I have currently written is to give you an introductory idea as to the complexity of the issue. I have much more to share, b-ezrath Shadai.
