But this just can't be! I mean, aren't they all born that way?
Charlene Cothran, a prominent black lesbian in the forefront of the fight for equal rights for gays and lesbians and publisher of a successful magazine geared to black homosexuals was not looking to change anything in her life. Her entire life and all her earthly successes were firmly entrenched in the homosexual community. But, due to the inspiration of a pastor who counseled Cothran to use her gifts for Christ, Cothran has left her homosexual life and is making it her mission to offer help to other homosexuals who want to do the same.Exactly. Then too I can't think of a better argument regarding homosexuality being a choice than to see those who abandon the lifestyle. But these people (and there are many of them) rarely get any mention in the press, otherwise they get condemned by the gay mafia that runs the liberal establishment.
Cothran said, “I must come out of the closet again. I have recently experienced the power of change that came over me once I completely surrendered to the teachings of Jesus Christ.”
In a front page article in her own VENUS magazine entitled “Redeemed! 10 Ways to Get Out of the Gay Life, If You Want Out.”, Cothran unabashedly explained the reasons behind her conversion and the peace that her decision has brought to her. “Although I have lived as a lesbian for my entire adult life, it is without a doubt my soul’s purpose to use my gifts to LOVINGLY share the truth about how we got here: how we came to be gay or lesbian, how we came to enjoy our ‘lifestyle’ and how we came to believe that this was OK with God.”
Cothran offered hope to her “gay and lesbian brothers and sisters who want real peace” saying, “It is simpler than you think to acquire [real peace] and there is no condemnation once you’ve entered it.” She continued, “Jesus will cleanse and forgive all confessed sin from a willing heart. Homosexuality is only one of them. It is no greater sin than any of the others, but it is sin.”
