Let's speak truth about this!

I personally know two people who were molested as children and suffered, yes, suffered from same sex attraction. They were both miserable living the life of same sex attraction. It did not feel comfortable to them and it was forced upon them as children. They both willingly went thru counseling and self-healing programs and are now on the other side of the issue and are so happy! They feel peace and joy now and that is because of counseling and turning their thought process and deep seated feelings around. Thank you to those counselors because they change lives for the better!  Don't take someone else's opportunity for peace and joy away by calling their actions criminal.
