Believing the lie

The first time I ever heard the word ‘gay’ was on Three’s Company.  I didn’t even know what that meant at the time, but the character Jack was always trying to present himself as the stereotypical homosexual so he could live with Chrissy and Janet.  The show, though controversial, was mostly silly, but built on the false narrative that a homosexual is a certain way.  I find it ironic that he had to present himself as gay in order to live with two women.

I was a TV and movie junkie.  I’m not into television anymore (working in the industry cured that) and I don’t watch movies much either (although I still have a vast collection from before the stroke) (I should open a DVD rental store!)

One thing I noticed from all that useless TV and movie watching is how much propaganda the entertainment industry has for living the gay lifestyle.  It’s not just Playgirl magazine or pornography.  It is everywhere!  I think the first openly gay character on TV was Beverly on All in the Family.  Next came Jody on Soap.  These were highly controversial shows at the time, but they presented the idea that living the gay lifestyle was okay.

Now its so commonplace on television, you can’t not see it.  The Simpsons, Modern Family, Glee, just to name a few.  It’s even more common in the movies.  It is everywhere.  It is all propaganda.  The media feeds into the lie that if you are attracted to guys, then you want to have sex with them.  Then the LGBT community swoops in with their lies of one being born that way.  It all makes me want to barf.


My homosexual tendencies were likely brought on by abuse, neglect, abandonment by my father, coupled with the death of David Wells.  This was not told to me by some psychiatrist, but by introspection after I began my walk with the Lord.  Then when I needed help to combat these feelings, the church told me that ‘all gays go to hell’, and I fell right into the trap of the gay lifestyle.  I am not making an excuse for what I did or trying to blame my life on any one thing.  A lot of it was ignorance on my part.  I won’t be fooled again.

So what to do?

The best that I can do is share my experiences and hope that someone else can learn from them, and they can get out of the gay lifestyle too.  The first step is not believing the lies of the media or the LGBT community activists.

  1. I am glad that you have found yourself in Christ. That’s really the only place that we find out who we really are. Television and other media and special interest groups can’t tell us who we really are. Only in Christ can we find our true selves, at least that’s how I see it. Thanks.
