Savage Love

At the end of the day, the existence of ex-queers proves nothing about current and future queers. There will always be queers who don't like being queer, and queers whose religious beliefs bring them into conflict with their desires and want to change. But what do they have to do with queers who like being queer, don't have religious hang-ups, and don't want to change?

If being cured of homosexuality requires people to accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior, where does that leave gay Buddhists? Or gay atheists? Or gay Unitarians? Or to personalize this: Even if it were possible for me to change my sexual orientation, what if I don't wanna change?

What it comes down to is this: Unlike Anne and Candi Paulk, I don't have a God-shaped hole in my heart. Or my head.
