LOUISVILLE, KY‚ÄîAt first glance, high school senior Lucas Faber, 18, seems like any ordinary gay teen. He’s a member of his school’s swing choir, enjoys shopping at the mall, and has sex with other males his age. But lately, a growing worry has begun to plague this young gay man. A gnawing feeling that, deep down, he may be a fundamentalist, right-wing Christian.
“I don’t know what’s happening to me,” Faber admitted to reporters Monday. “It’s like I get these weird urges sometimes, and suddenly I’m tempted to go behind my friends’ backs and attend a megachurch service, or censor books in the school library in some way. Even just the thought of organizing a CD-burning turns me on.”
Added Faber, “I feel so confused.”
Read every word.
Maybe we should start our own ministry here at TWO to help such gays leave Christianity behind. I mean, they obviously weren’t born that way, but we don’t believe they chose it. It’ s more something that happened to them. Usually it has something to do with the way they were raised, or maybe an older man, like a priest or a Sunday School teacher, seduced them into it. Regardless, they can change. Thousands of people have left Christianity behind and folks, their testimonies are inspiring. Above all, we have to protect the children from the Fundamentalist Christian agenda. Seriously, do you want your kids to be taught about Fundamentalist Christianity in school? Soon, they’ll be hearing it’s “just another worldview, equally worthy of consideration.” Children need to be taught about the dangers of Fundamentalist Christian behavior in school!
Also, I heard Fundamentalist Christians have been responsible for some of the most heinous genocides in human history.
