“Before I turn away from that question, let me say to those of you who struggle with this that this is not hard for me to empathize with or imagine. I don’t want those of you who are wrestling with this to feel like, “O, this is just the worst possible thing imaginable.” I don’t feel that way.
What I feel is simply the need to admit brokenness before the Lord. Set your face to say, “My heart is broken, and I am weeping, because for reasons I don’t understand I am broken in my sexuality. I’m broken. I wish I weren’t. I can chose to turn my brokenness into sin…”
See, I don’t think it’s sin to be broken. It’s the result of sin to be broken. But to just be that way, to feel that way, I don’t think is any more sin than my feeling heterosexual. It’s unnatural, it’s broken, but now I have the choice with my heterosexuality to make it sin or to make it holy.
A person who wrestles with homosexual temptations and desires has the same choice: to sin with it, or to be chaste and to seek to overcome and to move into something more God-appointed.
So don’t hear me isolating it as the worst of all sins. It is part of a brokenness that I share”
