@23 - And you cast aspersions on MY word count?

@59 - It's fine, as far as it goes, aside from being predicated on a rather huge "if"--that is, IF there is a conscious, immutable, morally preoccupied, essentially anthropomorphic deity, and if the Bible (for instance; feel free to insert the theistic text of your choice) represents his/her/its will, then what you say comes dangerously close to making sense. Of course, we have no direct evidence of this, which brings us to a fatal flaw--in a faith-based system (as opposed to a works-based system), we are responsible not for what we do (for man is so stained with sin that his works are as "filthy rags"), but for what we believe. Except we do not choose what we believe, so far as we define "belief" as they do in philosophy--namely, as the holding of a given posit as true. Since belief cannot be either counter-factual (though it can be extra-factual) or counter-intuitive, one can only hold beliefs for which one's perceptions (and aptitude for organizing those perceptions).

A works-based system seems marginally better, but again, it relies on one believing, at least, in both the deity and the veracity of the revealed text to determine what "works" this deity prefers, or the "sins" from which this deity would have us abstain.

Thus, there is no recourse to actual choice in a system requiring the favor of deity to achieve salvation . . . unless, of course, said deity sees fit to make his/her/its existence and intentions known by way of irrefutable evidence. Indeed, if such a being existed (and as a Nichiren Buddhist, I don't believe it does), I'm inclined to say that opposing it is a moral imperative, since it's essentially making a game of chance out of the individual's salvation.

@15 - The fact is, we only ever have one's word for anything related to internal processes. Not all people who have one, or even several, homosexual experience(s) are necessarily homosexual. So when those people declare one way or the other, we can either believe them or not believe them, and we will often do so based on appearance, sexual history, and other external markers. It's an imperfect system, which is to say that it's yet another human system for determining truth.

I could start writing with my right hand, if I wanted to; it would be months, at least, before it became legible, but I could do it. It still wouldn't make me right-handed. Are you obligated to believe that? Obviously not. You only have my word for it that I'm left-handed. Conversely, I could say that I'd become more proficient at writing with my right hand than I'd ever been with my left--that I was not, in fact, left-handed, but had come to believe that I was
by way of negligence, faulty reasoning, or lack of exposure to "normal" right-handed behavior. And you'd STILL have to evaluate that story on what you perceived to be its merits and determine for yourself whether it rings true.

She mentions "the healthy heterosexual women who surrounded me with love as I suffered through this transition", and several other women, but she doesn't seem to have had many important relationships with men (other than negative and abusive ones).

She doesn't come across as 'anti-male', but as just not very interested in men.

I have all the sympathy in the world for people who get this screwed up over their sexuality, particularly when religion gets involved and does the screwing. I am willing to give them all the sympathy and forgiveness in the world... until they turn around and start advocating for the screwing over they received.

As the victim of this religious brainwashing I feel sorry for her. As a shill for the brainwashers trying to convince other people to fuck themselves up as badly as she is, I have none. Once she becomes an agent of the people wanting to fuck gay people over she becomes one of them.

@55 I think that they agreed that IF God told them not to have sex, they would stop, but didn't at that point. Then 2 years later when they stopped sleeping together, they presumably also stopped "sleeping together".

That said, yeah, she comments more on her abusive partners than the nice one. Get this lady to therapy. She EXPECTS you to tell her she needs to change. That's why the hetero women were better partners than her lover.

“Hutch” says Romney would have won had he exposed President Barack Obama’s radical record on “same-sex marriage,” abortion and other social issues because that would have motivated more Christians and conservatives to go to the polls.

What about her last girlfriend?
The one she "entered into a Civil Union" with in 2001.
"We bought property together and built our dream home, co-mingling everything we owned."
My partner and I found a church that we loved the first time we attended service.
"We were determined that over time we would bring change to the church and eventually they would openly accept gays as we showed them that our love for each other was pure."

But then ... !

"We requested baptism, and were both called into the assistant pastor’s office where he told us he didn’t know if he could baptize us since we were living in sin ..."
"After a long discussion where we both told him that we would walk away from our lifestyle if that is what God told us to do ..."

So the woman you loved and civil unioned and bought property with ... both of you were okay with a decision to end sex after "a long discussion".

"Over the next two years, I became more and more involved in the church."

Two years so far without sex.

"They confronted our beliefs in a gentle and loving way, never backing down from their convictions, but gently showing us what the scriptures said about the way we were living."

Hadn't you already given up sex? So you were more like roommates. Except with a previous romantic history.

"We began by moving into separate bedrooms in our house, and eventually, my partner moved out."

So the girlfriend seems to be a cypher who just facilitates whatever the author wants at the time she wants it.
And is not mentioned again.

"I thank God for the healthy heterosexual women who surrounded me with love as I suffered through this transition."

And nothing for the woman who facilitated that entire process.

Unfortunately, many straight women get lesbian haircuts around the age of 40. Given the amount of grey in her hair I wouldn't read that much into the cut.

Why do I say this is unfortunate? Because as a straight guy I don't find those cuts attractive. The odd thing is that if you read comment threads where straight women defend the idea that older women should get these cuts, they use the fact that they are unattractive to men as a prime reason for getting them. Women are mysterious. Gay dudes are lucky.

@34: There are probably more than you'd imagine. I'm no longer Christian, but when I was, I was a member of a *very* liberal (and Welcoming and Affirming) Baptist church. Traditionally, two major Baptist distinctives are the soul freedom of the individual believer and the autonomy of the individual congregation. A congregation has the power to decide its membership, as does a denomination (in a rather broad sense of the term), and so a congregation can decide not to have an individual as a member if they feel that person is a heretic, and a denomination can do likewise with a congregation, but neither has the authority to command their members to believe this or that. Combine that with the incredible array of Baptist denominations, and the large number of Baptist churches that aren't associated with a denomination at all, and there's a lot of room for variation in what Baptists believe.

"When I was 15 ... I rejected God and completely turned my back on him, denying that he even existed."

Wow. Teen angst. You are so special! No one else has ever gone through that.

"I struggled for the next couple of years with deep depression and attempts at suicide."

Plural "attempts"?
As a teenager?

"There, I experienced sexual abuse from three different older men ..."

Three?

"... I was also seduced by two different married men ..."

Two?

The story seems to be about the pain that SHE has been subjected to by OTHER people.
She goes from bad relationship to bad relationship.
And it is always the other person who betrays her in her search for love and acceptance and safety.
Until she find Jesus again. Because Jesus will never abandon you. Even if you abandon Jesus.
She's found the narrative that she wants to work from now and it is all about her.

That poor woman has a lot of healing left to do. She needs to figure out what "unconditional" really means. She needs to accept and love herself unconditionally before she gets it right. Sexual orientation is just an aspect of who we are, and there is no right or wrong to it. It just is. I am very glad she didn't have kids. It would have been so unfair to pass that hot mess on to another generation.

She said she'd renounce the "lifestyle", not have sex with guys. But she does say she's not gay anymore (and never was?) but doesn't say she's had any heterosexual relationships since, which if she had I'm sure would have been mentioned. Also, I'd wager the Baptist churches of Vermont are composed of the most tolerant patient Baptists out there - they'd have to be to live in super liberal land. It's not that they were super outreachy to her - they'd be that way to anyone who stumbles in the door - how many Baptists live in VT 10? 20? Conservative churches live to recruit! They don't like you for being gay, etc. if you started out in the faith. Then you are betraying, rather than just being ignorant.

Wow. That's really tragic. But I can't help thinking that she was set free less by Jesus than by actually living openly as who she is (even if she can't act on it).

Even though the whole church knew about it, *she* thought she was closeted and was aware of how unacceptable they would find her 'if only they knew.' So she comes out *only* when she is prepared to change her life to be the way they want it. And is surprised that they still accept her, even though she's a dirty sinner. So she can finally fit in and feel acceptable to the people around her, even as a lesbian. Voila, sense of freedom. Though with conditions, of course.

Wow. Sad.

She is probably bisexual. But what strikes me most about her narrative is how insecure she is and her constant desire to find security with those who seem to "have the answers" - first prefering people older than herself for friends, dating an older boyfriend in high school, suffering sexual abuse at or older than 15 with "three different older men" (how did that happen three times? - what sort of pattern is at play here?), and then through religious doctrine and those who are certain in their beliefs, as long as they show her a bit of sustained kindness. She seems to have a very weak sense of self. Her life is also a litany of bad choices without any attempt to take responsibility it - it is always other people's fault - she didn't choose to date a loser; but was betrayed by one; she didn't choose to have sex with five separate men, two of them married, they sexually assaulted and seduced her. She stayed with undesirable, abusive partners for SIX years twice, was devastated when the first woman left her. Sheesh. She's a sex slave scenario or two away from being de sade's justine.

She is a clingy, weak, immoral chameleon. She was never shackled by homosexuality. Her life has been spent shackled by her own failure to develop an adult sense of self and take responsibility for her life and make good choices. Frankly, bed death for her might be a kindness to the world or at least to anyone who might otherwise in the future make the bad choice to date her, given her inability to have a real adult loving relationship.

I would greatly pity this train wreck of a woman and life, but for the fact that by her involvment in ex-gay ministry and therapy, she is actively harming others. How this woman can read her own story and believe she has an ounce of insight into god or humanity is difficult to grasp.

It's telling that of nearly all of her ex-relationships, she says of each that she was sexually abused.

It's similar to the type who are certain everyone of their many exs are asshats.

Since she is the running thread in all of these failed relationships, the asshat might be the lady in her mirror - the one who thinks God is her new squeeze.

the troll will be happy to explain it to you.

were there a god
he/she/it would be very smart and very benevolent.

and thus he/she/it would know,
and be willing; nay eager;
to share the Secret of Happiness with Mankind;
whom he/she/it loves and wants only the best for.

and by following the One True Path to Happiness
revealed by a very smart and very benevolent 'god'
Mankind could find;... Happiness! (duh)

now,
our 'god' loves Mankind
(individually and collectively)
even if they chose not to take
his/her/its benevolent wise advise.

he/she/it is Sad that/when/if they
(Mankind; individually and/or collectively)
reject his/her/its kind wise advise
(and thus throw away Happiness, with two hands)
but he/she/it does not tale it personally
and loves them none the less.
unconditionally.

now;
what not even 'god' can do,
however,
is to finagle the universe
such that Mankind
(individually or collectively)
can find Happiness
without following The One True Path to Happiness.

Disease, Misery, Dissipation, Turmoil, Death- shall we say 'Gomorrah'?-
these are the Fruits of paths other than
The One True Path to Happiness.

so what our short haired friend is saying
is that 'god' loves her no matter what
but she could not experience the happiness that 'god' has shown the path to
until (and unless) she followed The One True Path to Happiness.

see how that works?

Danny repeatedly tells kids that they may decide they are no longer, or not in fact, homosexual "but nobody has to believe them".

Because homosexuality is like the Hotel California.
"You can check out any time you like
but you can never leave...."

So what choice does a kid have,
who experimented with homosexuality;
maybe when they were 13 or 14;
identified as gay,
outed themselves,
but realizes now they are not homosexual?

What choice do they have?

They can declare that they are no longer, or never in fact were, gay.

And endure cruel demeaning ridicule, disbelieve and mockery from Danny and his Flying Monkeys.

Being a kid is hard enough without that.

They say that Suicide is Painless........

I wish I could get my hair to do that.
Does this mean she's been snuggling with Jesus every night for 23 years? I think I'd prefer my cat (Jesus always seems a bit scrawny).
(Can anyone link Uncle Bonsai's "Fat Boys" here? It would be appropriate, but I don't know how.)

The thing is you don't want to be is so crass as to say, "Based on how that person chooses to present them self they must be gay", but Dan I think you nailed it.

Picture aside, reading through her story I can't really believe that her journey for identity is really over. Deprived of quality people around her to give her self esteem her latest artificial self confidence boost is being a celebrity among the anti-gays.
