From the man who brought us Charlene Cothran's highly publicized "coming out" as a new heterosexual we have more ridiculousness from Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network.

In an effort to no doubt fan the flames of homophobia in the black church and spread false information, Robertson has found his latest gay to hetero success story in Brenda Burton.

Burton's story is filled with the usual discredited stereotypes about the origin of homosexuality in an effort to prove to CBN's audience that sexual orientation is indeed a choice or at the very least a by product of one's environment.

From CBN.com:

“At the age of three, I was molested by my female cousin,” Brenda said. “I was molested in college. I was raped in college. And I didn’t love me. I had vowed that I would never let a man touch me, that I would never open my heart to a man.”

She developed a tough personality and began to dress and act like a man.

“I used to go out there and I learned how to work on a car. Everything that boys would do, that’s what I wanted to do,” Brenda said. “I didn’t want to clean up. I didn’t learn makeup. I didn’t learn how to put makeup on. I didn’t know.”

In her early 20’s, Brenda began to desire women.

“I used to love women. I used to lust after them everyday, all day,” she said. “And I was like, ‘I was born this way.’”

The ridiculous reasons given by Burton for engaging in the "gay lifestyle"(whatever that means) would be funny if it weren't for the number of people who believe that homosexuality derives from an overbearing mother, abusive father, or childhood molestation. I also can't help but notice how Robertson always conveniently finds people of color to share their "testimony" of conversion. Incidental? I think not.

Watch Brenda Burton tell her story in the video here. Prepare to protect your keyboard.

All you have to do to be heterosexual woman is to wear makeup? Because we all know that women love them some makeup you see. And lesbians hate makeup.

Haha this woman is so confused that it is sad. Instead of running to Jesus she needs to be speaking with a therapist and a psychologist to get to the root of her problems.

When one declares themself to be an ex-homosexual does it mean that they no longer have their natural desire to sleep with the same sex, or does it mean that they're choosing not to act on it? Because I'm a light skinned black man who can claim to no longer be black, even have children and raise them to believe that they aren't black but would that really mean that I'm not black? At the end of the day we can lie to ourselves and hide from eachother but we can never hide anything from God, which is sort of ironic when you consider the fact that he's the only one with the power determine if any of us have lived a "good" life and judge accordingly.
