Bound, a magazine catering to a lesbian lifestyle readership, featured former lesbian Janet Boynes of Minneapolis telling her story of getting out of her former lifestyle of sin.
“God hates me. Well, that’s what I’ve heard. I’ve heard He hates me because I’m a lesbian and according to the Bible, lady loving is a sin. It’s unnatural, like pastel-colored hair or imitation meat. I was once shown a clever little anagram by a straight Christian woman I accidentally hit on (strangely enough, she loked like a total dyke): GAY=God Abhors You. That was scrawled across a napkin and then thrown in my face. Must’ve been my pink hair.
According to Janet Boynes, author of Called Out: A Former Lesbian’s Discovery of Freedom, God isn’t like that. She says He calls in love. He’d write his number down on that napkin. He’s more like your pal who wants what’s best for you. However, “what’s best” is based on the teachings He laid out in the Bible, which isn’t the most gay-friendly read. If you’re gay He wants you to come back and hang out with him…just leave the lesbian thing at the door.”
The article is in a magazine with pictures which depict lesbian relationships. While GCM Watch does not approve of Bound’s content, we do approve of Evangelist Boynes taking the message of freedom right into the prison walls.
Registration is required to read the entire article.
Boynes is author of the book Called Out, which details her deliverance from homosexuality. [website]
