Churchgoers with gay kids want to change church views on gay sex

Churchgoers who attend churches or are part of denominations that teach homosexuality is a sin are hoping to change their churches’ view on gay sex to stop what they deem is wrongful demonization of gays. One such couple are Rob and Linda Robertson whose son told them at 12 that he was into boys, not girls. They claim they let their son Ryan know that they loved him, then sent him through reparative therapy and pastoral counseling to help him change.

Ryan eventually got involved in drugs and ended up dying of an overdose in 2009, six years after he ‘came out’ to his parents. Now their goal is to change what they were taught. According to Rob, ‘It’s a horrible, horrible mistake the church has made,’ when they teach against homosexuality. And the Robertsons are just a few of many who are actively attempting to brainwash persuade fellow parishioners into reinterpreting the Bible’s clear statements that homosexuality is wrong.

They represent the age-old mentality of blaming everyone else for the problems that their kids have. It’s obvious that these are individuals who have probably not studied the Bible and if they have read the Bible, they have hardened their hearts against God’s truth. Instead of accepting the many proofs that God has verified what he says in his word, people like the Robertsons have decided to rebel against God and cause others to stumble in the same way they have. It’s the wrong-headed humanist way of thinking that drives them to tell themselves, “Since my child or other family member or friend or favorite celebrity is that way, then it must be okay.”

Why are their kids gay? That’s the million dollar question they should be asking themselves. Children are not born gay. Someone or something in their environment steers them that way. As I’ve stated before, people become gay because of one or more of the following things:

  • Sexual abuse: Children molested by people of the same gender are told by abusers that since they ‘allowed’ the perpetrator to have sex with them, they are gay. Children abused by people of the opposite sex become disgusted with the idea of having sex with the opposite sex and may think that same gender relationships are the way to go. They also tend to turn to drugs to cope with the abuse.
  • Nonexistent or strained relationships with parent(s): Physical and/or psychological abuse and/or an absent parent can lead to homosexuality. I personally knew a guy once who questioned his sexuality partially due to the fact he was rejected by his father and his mother, in his opinion, favored his sisters over him.
  • Lack of direction toward gender-specific activities: When parents let boys go around putting on dresses and makeup or let girls dress up like boys, these kids learn to hate how God blessed them with being born whatever gender they were born as. Being born male is not a birth defect. Neither is being born a girl. Although gay activists are attempting to brainwash people into thinking that to raise their numbers.
  • Lack of being taught right from wrong regarding sexuality: Homosexual/transgender lifestyles promote promiscuity, which is one reason why that community accounts for the large increase in sexually-transmitted diseases.

Instead of blaming everything on the church (which in some instances is warranted for the church’s hypocrisy on sex and sexuality) or what God says in the Bible, parents of gay kids should focus on getting themselves right with God first and then work to reverse these things I listed above to help kids and adults who have suffered in those environments.

He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Matthew 10:37

  1. I thought that homosexuality was another manifestation of the sin nature, since it is sin. I thought that homosexuality was the result of God giving the sinner up to vile passions because sinners refuse to worship and thank God as the Lord God Almighty Creator of heaven and earth and suppress the truth in unrighteousness. Teaching that homosexuality is the result of psychological/sexual trauma or rejection by parents is what has brought us to the place we are today. How many children who were sexually preyed upon did not/do not become homosexuals and how many children who were rejected by their parents did not/do not become homosexuals? I will believe what God has said in His Word about the origins of this perverted behavior and reject the humanistic explanation. God bless you:)

    1. Thanks for pointing those things out, Eliza.

      Homosexuality, clearly a sin, is much like other sins. It can be taught. This is what the Bible tells us in several places (Deut. 20:16-18; Matthew 15:9). That’s why God used his prophets to rebuke leaders like priests, who by their actions caused people to stumble in sin (Malachi 2:7-8). Because of our sin nature, we as humans can be taught to kill, do drugs, curse, and become sexual perverts, etc., depending on whether or not we give in to the temptations of our surroundings. The Robertson boy who overdosed had the choice not to become a drug addict and not be gay, all it took was surrendering to Jesus as Lord, relying on the Holy Spirit, applying God’s word to his life, and godly counsel from strong Christians to come out of it. Unfortunately, he chose to resist God.
