Ex-Gay Visibility Day: First Sunday in June

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

From the Ruth Institute:

“The gay lobby makes sure everyone knows Junes is ‘Pride Month,’ but they certainly won’t acknowledge the many people who have left the LGBT identity behind. That’s why the Ruth Institute is declaring the first Sunday of June to be Ex-Gay Visibility Day,” said Ruth Institute president Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.

“It’s not politically correct to talk about ex-LGBT people. To the gay lobby, they don’t exist, or they’re just lying to themselves or were never really gay in the first place,” Morse said.

“But I have met many people who have journeyed away from an LGBT identity and are living happy, fulfilled lives with opposite sex partners. There are organizations of them all over the world.”

The next Dr. J Show interviewees are a man and woman who have journeyed away from a gay identity, as well as a therapist who has assisted many others in doing the same.

“Our YouTube channel has many more interviews of people just like this, brave enough to share their stories despite the possibility of public backlash.”

Millions of people currently self-identify as gay, lesbian or bisexual. Yet Ruth Institute Senior Research Associate Fr. Paul Sullins, looked at the studies and estimates there are roughly the same number of ex-gays as there are gays. “That means there have to be millions of them,” Morse said, “all with stories that deserve to be heard.”

Throughout June, Morse will be talking with some of them on her show. They demonstrate that there are many ways both into and out of the LGBT identity.

“The world needs to be made aware of this. No one should feel trapped in a life that doesn’t feel right for their life goals and their moral values. Being told they were ‘born that way’ and there’s no way out adds another layer of pain and shame.”

The Ruth Institute knows otherwise. Join them in proclaiming June 2nd as Ex-Gay Visibility Day. Follow along all month as the Ruth Institute celebrates brave men and women who have quietly defied one of the strongest social taboos of our time: putting pride aside and leaving the gay identity behind.

We can only say “Amen” to this effort of the Ruth Institute in this Sacred Heart Month. This is the month where we need to proclaim louder, with greater truth and charity, that the Sacred and Eucharistic Heart of Jesus is King over souls and societies!

For people who have been recovering or have recovered from SSA, this reality of the Sacred and Eucharistic Heart of Jesus is more real than ever, and their conversions and their healing is nothing less than the glory of God. Therefore we invite priests and pastors to mention this on Sunday and spread the word!
