On National Coming Out Day, I am about to come out before all your eyes…
As a former homophobe.
From my own experience, I can tell you that homophobes are troubled and indeed culpably troubled individuals with a perverse view of life and of other people and of love.
Homophobes claim to be normal, but there is something contrary to natural human sentiment in their erroneous and erratic affections, desires and opinions.
Their disorder is intrinsic, the very wellsprings of their souls are tainted by unreasonable impulses and beastly fury.
They are insecure, anxious, jittery and in some cases, they risk harming their own mental and physical health, as well as the wellbeing of those around them.
They organize themselves into lobbies and try to make everybody just like them.
They are not merely content to be tolerated; they will actually stop at nothing to have their bizarre and immoral fetishes and perversion validated and even put beyond all question.
They stridently shout down those who have the slightest disagreement with them, and want to harass, bully, abuse and outright anathematize all who disagree with them.
There is no such thing as honest discord; you are either with them, or against them.
Your career is not safe, your reputation is not safe; they are not content to merely live their own lives and let things be; they want you to submit unto their ungodly and depraved inclinations and their abject wickedness.
Sometimes, you will be tempted to sympathise with the homophobe.
But this sentimental weakness, however laudable, is a grave mistake.
For deep down, no matter what he or she may say, the homophobe is very much conscious of their own wickedness and of the futility of their evil, abusive lifestyle.
It is not that they do not know right from wrong; they are actually in denial of what, in their heart of hearts, they know to be true.
Do not let your school, your university, your blog site, your business or your place of worship surrender to the Homophobic Agenda.
Because no matter what they say: deep down, THEY KNOW it is wrong.
And if you but once perceive that they are arrogant and swagger and revel in their cruelty and wickedness and debauchery of pride and malice, be no less assured that deep down, ‘the devils are afraid, and tremble.’
Do not squander your empathy or sympathy upon the homophobe; keep him at a distance, and pray or implore with all that in you is, that he change his ways.
Until then, do not be so naive as to assume that he is the mere dupe of his desires.
He knows what he does.
