How ironic.  The film “Voices of the silenced” has been silenced before it’s debut showing.  Now, I clearly haven’t seen the film but read that this is a film with 15 testimonies of walking out of the homosexual lifestyle to faith.  The response of the LGBT community – fear.  Not that they would call it fear, they would (again) say that Christians are trying to “cure” those with same sex attraction and must be silenced.  But realistically Satan does not want the many who struggle with same sex attraction to know that there is another way.  He does not want those who want to explore their feelings access to God.  He doesn’t like freedom of speech and healthy debate.

Talk to Christians, like myself, who have walked this walk.  I know that same sex attraction is not an illness or a disease, it cannot be “cured”.  I also know that I have choice in my life.  I chose to explore faith, I chose to believe that God loved me, I chose to be obedient to his word, not because I was scared, not because I had to, but because I wanted to.  I choose to continue that walk, hard as it may be at times, but I choose it because what I have with God is greater than anything I could have with man. 

Please join me in praying that our voices will not be silenced, that we can speak up and speak out on this divisive topic and that we, as God’s people, can be a light in the darkness that continues to envelop that community.
