I don’t like mens no more: is it possible to pray, the gay way?

Is it possible to pray the the gay away? By now most of you have seen the video of a “formerly” gay man proclaiming, proudly in front of a church, that he is no longer gay and denouncing homosexuality all while looking like an Antoine and Blaine extra. And for those of you who haven’t, I will provide you with what is sure to be the highlight of your day if not year.

As this man denounces his Madea impersonating past and makes the proclamation that he, “don’t like mens no more,” I began to think; can one actually pray away their sexual orientation? I mean, either you’re born that way or you’re not right? Some will argue that homosexuality is a choice, while others say that’s the way they were born. So the question is, if you are born gay can faith and prayer change that? You can’t change the color of your eyes, by praying, can you?

Some will look at this video and scoff at the ridiculousness video. And how could they not? The way the guy speaks and dresses brings to mind a gay Carlton Banks, who is no more straight than Young Thug is (the jury is still out on that one), not to mention his mannerisms are slightly questionable. Also, the growling like DMX in the recording booth and his claiming that he likes women alot will have you believe that he is trying hella hard to convince himself (because most watching it aren’t buying it) that he is straight.

But all of this goes back to skepticism about praying the gay away, aren’t we as Christians, taught that Christ can do all things and that, “greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world?” So, why wouldn’t it possible that Christ can change a believers sexual orientation, if one so desired to change?

This is the same God, that can provide a way when there isn’t one, heal sickness and help you when you are struggling. Those of us that are believers, are taught that there isn’t anything the Lord can’t do and to trust, have faith in him, and lean not on our own understanding.

And herein lies a problem, by saying that the gay can be prayed away, is essentially saying that homosexuality is a disease that needs curing, or a problem that needs fixing. Neither of which makes much sense to me, since one’s sexuality is one of many traits, much like height or eye color that we are born with.

But getting back to faith, a true Christian should know the power of faith. It has been passed down from generation to generation, and without unwavering faith in the Lord, how can one consider them self a true Christian?

So having said that, if we are true faith-filled believers, this man’s claim doesn’t seem that far fetched now does is it?

Talk to me, I’ll talk back.

  1. You make a lot of good sense here Breazy. Who are we, as mortal men to say that God has not touched this individual and changed his sexual desires. I don’t have to watch the tape but can understand your description of his mannerism, etc. Who knows how long he has used those same mannerism which is probably done by habit more now than anything. But if he says he has acquired faith in Christ and have changed as a result, then God bless him and hope he can live his life as he now wants to. That does not mean I am sure which is which, born gay or turned gay…that’s a subject beyond my pay grade. Maybe some are and others are not, they acquire the need for same sex some time in their lives. Either way, we are all God’s children, so let God be the judge, jury and so on. Good blog Breazy.

    1. Thank you for reading and commenting, I really appreciate it. I agree with everything you said, who are we to judge someone for their sexuality? If one is born gay, how can it be right, how can it be wrong? It’s like being born short or being born tall, it’s just is. One thing for sure, like you said we are all God’s children.

  2. i don’t know how i feel about this.. especially getting up in front of everyone to “confess”..i believe its a state of mind.. an can be condition to believe he is delivered.. if that makes sense.

    1. I kind of agree with you, especially if a person feel likes they are born gay. Like I said, if that is the case, it’s not different than any other trait that a person is born with. Now that’s not to say that one can be changed through faith.

      1. agreed.. if someone can change from stealing, drugs etc.. which all is a lifestyle.. then surely he can.. i just think this guy is ready to capitalize.. and with this new found fame. he can easily fall back into that lifesstyle

    1. So now I’m finding that he was arrested for Insurance scam, and is going to Medical School on line. Let me tell you, as someone who was married to a medical student, there is not on line medical school.
