Spanish Bishop Publishes Ex-gay Testimonies on Diocesan Website after Attacks from Homosexual Groups

April 25, 2012 ( - Juan Antonio Reig Plà, the Catholic bishop of the Spanish diocese of Alcalá De Henares, has responded to recent attacks by homosexual groups by posting testimonies on his website of individuals who rejoice in their abandonment of the homosexual lifestyle.

“I want to thank especially those who feel, or have felt, Same-Sex Attraction (SSA), and have seen fit to send me your testimonies; more than one hundred of you have written your experiences up to now,” writes Reig Plà. “I must thank you because I have seen in them the hand of God and I have learned much from your suffering and your hopes.”

Bishop Juan Antonio Reig PlàHe adds that those who have written “are collaborating in this way to break the barrier of silence regarding the possibility of change for those who freely wish to do so, and that’s why it’s important to publish and spread them!”

The letters were published following a controversy created by a sermon given by Reig Plà on Good Friday, in which he compared the misery of those who are living the homosexual lifestyle to hell. He then generated outrage from homosexual and socialist groups by recommending therapy for homosexuals in a follow-up interview. The testimonies the bishop published speak of the suffering entailed in the homosexual lifestyle, as well as hope for overcoming homosexual tendencies.

The foolish notion that nothing can be done about unwanted sexual attraction negates Leviticus 18 and 20, as well as the other Biblical prohibitions. It also puts God into an awfully small box.

“The woman states that, following her first homosexual experience, she attempted to get help, but “sadly the psychologist at my university urged me to accept myself as I was because ‘I was born this way.’”

There’s no doubt, however, that the journey out of living hell is difficult.

A courageous bishop.

When I was in college one of the Resident Assistants started wearing an earring.  When I questioned him about it, he stated that his father starting raping him when he was 5 years old and therefore his fantasies were all about men.

Our flaming liberal dorm dad encouraged him to “explore his homosexuality”...

Fortunately, his parents came and got him and got him some Christian help instead.

So, the homosexual leadership is “OK” that someone would choose a homosexual lifestyle because they were repeatedly raped by their father as a child? 

This story is NOT unique; you fill find most folks who choose a homosexual lifestyle were influenced by someone else while they were most vulnerable.
