Quote# 41207

(I felt important to submit this one because Fundie X-ians always say that homosexuality is a CHOICE...but apparently... 2/3 of the way down in the thread...)

"I read your testimony about a month ago. What a wonderful testimony! Being formerly lesbian, do you still struggle with attractions for women? I have been having a horrible time with struggling with that and sometimes my mind goes too far. I often find myself asking for forgiveness. I know that I don't want to be a lesbian because I know it is wrong in the eyes of God, but I just cannot seem to stop being attracted to women.

God bless you!

You are a lesbian. Accept it.

The Lazy One

That's really sad...

Does the bible even say anything at all about lesbians? I know it prescribes death for any man who is teh ghey, several times, but I can't recall any mention of women.

6/18/2008 9:34:12 PM


What a coincidence! I'm a guy, and I can't seem to stop being attracted to women either!

You can't change that. Get over it.

ETA: Brain_In_A_Jar, it does say that no one who's homosexual will go to heaven, so I guess that does mean lesbians...

6/18/2008 9:34:58 PM


Do it.

6/18/2008 9:35:15 PM


Please learn to first unbrainwash yourself and then accept yourself. And try to do both of those before entering into a relationship with anyone, man or woman.

Well stop choosing to be attracted to women!

Denial is not just a river in Egypt.

There's a verse in I Corinthians, I think it is, that specifically talks about women laying with women. But otherwise most of the places that I can remember from my day's as a christian specifically refer to men with men. So for the most part god doesn't seem to mind lesbians. Of course in the Old Testament, 'god' seemed more concerned with women laying with animals, or guys sleeping with their aunts than he/she/it was with banning evils like slavery or genocide.

Though, something the Christians tend to forget is that lying, stealing, cheating, etc, are 'also' listed as abominations to god not just homosexuality. You'd think that they'd pay attention but....

There you see. Homosexuality isn't something you choose. You can't help.

6/18/2008 9:45:00 PM


Suzi, it's okay to be yourself. God's a fairytale, you are not. This crap is only a road to self-loathing and suicide. Find someone to share this life with--it's too short to follow the arbitrary rules of a group of backwards incompetents.

Milking the Catz

Thank God for making you something he hates.


6/18/2008 9:51:03 PM


That's a fabulous testimony about the power of christianity overcoming homosexuality - thanks for sharing it!!

You just proved what I've been saying for years. Christianity ain't a cure-all.

6/18/2008 9:53:34 PM


It kills me what this religion has done to people. If it hadn't been for the church's guilt/fear tactics, I might've figured out that I was bi a LONG time ago. What a tragedy that people have to live in such conflict between who they really are and some idiot religion's ancient mistranslated rules about who they "should" be.


6/18/2008 9:54:23 PM


This is a great example of the unfortunate effects of religious brainwashing.

Lady, you are not "formerly" a lesbian. If you still feel that attraction, then guess what? You like women. It isn't a crime, and you don't need to fool yourself into thinking it is.

Damned from the Gitgo

News flash: Heterosexuals are attracted to the opposite gender and homosexuals are attracted to the same gender. People who honestly don't know this, based on their personal experience, and insist it is a matter choice are clearly bisexual and choose not to act on their attraction to those of the same sex--or at least don't admit to it until caught, like certain fundie ministers and right-wing politicians whom have made headlines in recent years.

6/18/2008 10:03:59 PM


Yeah. I used to be like this, back when I was a Catholic. I thought I had a disorder named bisexuality, and tried to focus instead on liking guys.

But of course, it didn't work. It was only a small part of the reasons that I left Christianity, though.

6/18/2008 10:15:33 PM


I know that I don't want to be a lesbian because I know it is wrong in the eyes of God, but I just cannot seem to stop being attracted to women.

Poor old Suzi. Kid, you should live your life for you, not for Jehovah. I'll give you a piece of advice I think every mother has given every child from the dawn of history. "If you have to change everything about yourself to be friends with someone then you don't need that person as a friend." Do you enjoy hanging out with people who hate you for being yourself?

That's just not healthy.

6/18/2008 10:22:53 PM


There's no point going any further in to the closet, there's nothing there. You can change sexualities about as much as you can change your shoe size and you need to learn to live with that. if you don't you're just going to end up miserable.

6/18/2008 10:24:02 PM


I always feel so sorry for these people whenever I read things like this.

That, and the urge to go torch a Bible or something. It's sickening to realize that there are people out there who are lying to themselves like this because some fundie asshat has brainwashed them into deep self-loathing based on the poorly-translated words of some ancient book of the superstitions of a bunch of desert people.

6/18/2008 10:33:32 PM


Suzi! Please stop letting these vile miscreants poison your mind! If you believe God made you, then he made you exactly as you are right now and he intended you to experience this life. By denying yourself like this, you're going against what God gave you.

Maester Seymour''s Mother

Not funny.

Just amazingly sad.

EDIT: Mick, where is that in the Bible? I'm quite curious.

6/18/2008 10:43:14 PM

That's really sad... I actually feel bad for her. :(

I think she should stop fighting it and accept who she is.

6/18/2008 10:48:02 PM


Very sad.

On the other hand Suzi, are you hot? Lipstick lesbians rule!

6/18/2008 10:48:22 PM


This is one of those quotes that practically has me crying in pity.
