So my parents want conversion therapy and I don’t want to do that because I’m afraid I will get hurt [and] I don’t believe that is Gods will. [But] I don’t want to upset my parents because then they will think I’m going down the “wrong” path. I also don’t think there is anything wrong with me and I’m afraid they are just getting sucked into a fundamentalist perspective with the bible and only think I listen to some sort of liberal propaganda. I just want them to see God’s love, please help.
Sorry about the late response. First, there’s nothing wrong with you. God loves you beyond your wildest dreams. Being gay is just another way in which our Creator has made us unique. It shouldn’t even be an issue, but some people want to punish diversity instead of celebrating it.
With your parents pushing conversion therapy, I don’t think it’s safe for your to remain in that house. Conversion therapy has been debunked as junk science and is mental abuse. I recommend you explain the situation to an LGBT-affirming friend or trusted adult such as a teacher who can help you find a stable place to live. That’s my opinion, and I ask the other trusted LGBT Christian leaders on Tumblr to add their opinions as well. But I do not see how anyone could healthily remain in such an environment.
Despite all of this, there will soon be a day where you will thank God for making you unique. And you’ll realize that this situation built character and made you a stronger person.
