- Michael Glatze
Christiannews.net is reporting that a former editor and founding partner of a prominent homosexual magazine is celebrating his recent marriage to his wife. He critics have viciously attacked him for turning his back on the homosexual lifestyle.
Michael Glatze says that he left homosexuality six years ago by a calling of the Lord after working as the editor of Young Gay America for over ten years.
“Knowing no one who I could approach with my questions and my doubts, I turned to God,” he told WND after his conversion. “I’d developed a growing relationship with God, thanks to a debilitating bout with intestinal cramps caused by the upset stomach-inducing behaviors I’d been engaged in.”
Glatze eventually left the magazine as he continued to pursue God, and left a startling note on his computer screen that ended with “Homosexuality is death, and I choose life.”In October of this year, Glatze married his girlfriend Rebekah at an outdoor ceremony in Bluffton, South Carolina. In a letter written this month and published by WND, Glatze gave thanks to God for his wife.
“I have been married now for a little over a month—and it has been the greatest month of my life thus far!” he wrote. “I am so grateful for Rebekah, for God, for His provision, for my new in-laws, for my family that traveled from far and wide to join in our special day, and for the prayers and support that have flooded our way since October.”
According to the New York Times magazine:
Michael didn’t begin to question his life path, he told me, until a health scare in 2004 that led to what he calls his “spiritual awakening.” That year, when Michael was 29, he experienced a series of heart palpitations and became convinced that he suffered from the same congenital heart defect that killed his father when Michael was 13. (Michael lost both his parents young; his mother died of breast cancer when he was 19.) After tests eventually ruled out his father’s illness, Michael felt that he had escaped death and found himself staring “into the face of God.” In a published interview with Joseph Nicolosi, a leader in the controversial field of reparative therapy, which seeks to help people overcome unwanted homosexual attractions, Michael said that he became “born again” in that moment and that “every concept that my mind had ever entertained — my whole existence — was completely re-evaluated.”
After several years as a media spokesperson for the anti-gay agenda, Glatze went to a small bible school in Wyoming preparing to become a preacher. His latest media offering occurred in a May 30, 2013 World Net Daily column, “Homosexuality – the Way God Sees It.” Here is what Glatze said:
“To be strong, as men, Christian men must understand that homosexuality is a direct raping of the relationship between Man and God – NOT, as some have suggested, a perfectly viable sexual ‘choice’ open to the same freedoms that any other ‘consensual choice’ seems to have in our relativistic society. Sure, Christian truth may not become the law of our land any time soon (though it certainly could), but Christian truth can certainly become the law of our lives – and it should, if we hope to make an impact on our world! God gifted me with a personal walk through homosexuality to the other side. Now, today, I’m happy and living a good, God-honoring life.”
