How to remove a Lesbian Demon in four easy steps.
A sad but true story
I may offend some Christians by telling you this story but in order for the truth to be heard and understood it must first be exposed. A few years ago I was a happy lesbian living with my girlfriend in Kansas City. We moved into a small house in the community and began building our life together. She was the oldest of five siblings and also a Pastor's child. I grew up in the church and one of the many things that we had in common was our love of God. Though she had grown up Baptist and I Seventh Day Adventist we came to conclusion that we would attend her father's church because it was the closest to us and easiest to fit into our busy schedules of work and College.
After attending her father's church for a few months her family began to send us signals that they didn't approve of our lifestyles. In a strange chain of events they took it upon themselves to remove the 'Lesbian Demons ' from our home. The events were as followed;
1. A group of women from the church arrived on our door one Sunday afternoon. Armed with the Bible in hand and blessing oil. They asked to come in and speak with us.
2. They asked if they could pray for us so we all joined hands and began prayer. In the middle of the prayer they began to tell God and us that they believe there were 'Lesbian Demon's' in our home and they were going to remove these evil spirits from our house.
3. As we stood around in amazement and horror they placed blessing oil on the doorways to our house and asked God to let these evil spirits leave. They also took my girlfriend to a corner and yelled over her and prayed for her placing their hands on her and rebuking the evil in her telling her that she was not gay and also an embarassment to her father and her family
4. They attempted to do the same thing to me but I declined their prayers and oil which further proved to them I was a follower of Satan himself.
For years Christian's have told me that I am doomed to hell for my 'choice' of lifestyle. I have called everything from a Satan worshiper to unethical and immoral. I spent the next week comforting my distraught partner. While I fully understand what the Bible says in regards to homosexuality I do not believe that this type of trauma is acceptable behavior for a Christian. You may not understand why we 'chose' to live this life and you may honestly believe that lesbians are evil people but I would ask you to first consider is it worth the trauma imposed on us to try to lead us to Christ?
The LGBT community must come together to help our Christian family understand us and what we are going through if any changes are ever going to come for us. It is my prayer that not a single person have to endure the pain that this event caused in my life and the lives of my many LGBT family. 'Judge not lest ye be judged."
