In an extremely candid interview on a Christian radio network, a former homosexual who was raised by a same-sex couple explained how he was "inducted into the world of gay sex" while a teenager – and why frank talk about homosexual activity is necessary.
Tuesday on American Family Radio, Dr. Robert Oscar López – a professor at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary – said it's necessary to discuss the biological realities of the homosexual lifestyle in order to help people get set free from it.
"I really just bought the propaganda from the gay community for years. I thought that it must be that I was born that way, that must have been who I was," López told talk-show host Abraham Hamilton III. "But I hated what I was actually doing … Finally, at the age of 28, I met a woman and I fell in love, and I realized that all of that was a lie."
The professor of humanities said it isn't just a lie for him, but for everyone.
"I don't think anybody is gay," he continued. "We talk about 'gay' as if it's this abstract thing – and we pretend that there isn't a brutal reality that takes place when two men … close the doors and get into bed together. They do things that people would universally find really unseemly – and there's no way around it."
Hamilton said Christians have "soft-pedaled" the realities of the homosexual lifestyle for so long that when believers "wake up" to those realities, they are shocked how the cultural foundation has shifted.

Editor's note: San Francisco's Castro District (see image above) was one of the first "gay" neighborhoods in the U.S. It remains one of the most prominent symbols of LGBT activism and events in the world. Known as a "thriving marketplace for all things gay," it is home to the Harvey Milk Plaza and host to numerous "gay pride" parades and street fairs every year.
