Quote on The “Ex-Gay” Myth

I “stole” this post from the blog “Joe. My. God.” What can I say? It’s an awesome and relevant quote:

“So often people will say someone needs to ‘repent’ from homosexuality. It is something that actually cannot be repented of! People are, or they are not, homosexual. It is an intrinsic part of their being or personally, my being. One cannot repent of something that is unchangeable. I have gone through a tremendous amount of grief over the many years that I spoke of change, repentance, reorientation and such, when, barring some kind of miracle, none of this can occur with homosexuality.” – John Smid, former head of Exodus International, who adds that he never once met a truly “ex-gay” person.
