Mature material warning for this post.  Not for children.

Some very important articles have been posted to LifeSiteNews for over a week, regarding a former “lesbian” who has left her prior lifestyle and embraced the Catholic Faith. There is much of value here, including the usual heartbreaking litany of severe problems in her upbringing that led to her fall into this disordered, sinful lifestyle, and the fear she has that Church leaders may undermine her own conversion by going soft on Church Doctrine.  I will cobble together excerpts from two posts, the first covering the disconcerting trend in the hierarchy to pretend gross perversion is just OK and even the bearer of “gifts” to the Church:

Robin Teresa Beck, 59, lived through 12 lesbian relationships over the course of 35 years before her dramatic conversion to the Catholic faith and healing from homosexuality, just five years ago……..

……..Her experience with same-sex attraction and the gay lifestyle gives her insight into what is at the heart of homosexuality and why it is fundamentally incompatible with the human person and with Christianity……

……Beck called it “cruel” for any religious leader to look favorably on homosexual relationships, saying if they only knew about the suffering, darkness, and brokenness tied to the lifestyle, they would never even consider condoning it.

“[P]eople do not see homosexuality for what it is,” she said.

“I think because I was so broken and so totally sickened by my sin that for me it was like: ‘I’m never going back there. I don’t care if Pope Francis gets in the chair and proclaims homosexual behavior is no longer a sin — which of course he can’t do — but if he did, I would be like: ‘No, I’m sorry. It is a sin.’ I don’t care who tries to tell me otherwise. I am just resolute on that.”

People who love God and neighbor need to reach out to people struggling with homosexuality with truth and love, Beck said. [I agree. I am shocked both at how many people have rolled over on this subject, and also just who has.  Some people who know very much that this is a gross offense against God have given up the fight, and left these souls to a nightmare of suffering in this life and the next]

“The Church needs to lovingly say to this person: ‘This is not who you are.  [Dang right. It is very hard to say, but that is the truth of the matter. Most will not hear us.  Most will lash out full of anger and vengeance. But a few will, and that makes the entire effort worth it] Acting on same-sex inclinations is never going to bring you to a place where you can have a right relationship with God. In fact, if you go this way, you are heading down a destructive path. The good news is we love you, we are going to be patient with you. If you fall a thousand times, we will still be there for you.’” 

Religious leaders need to start confronting homosexuality head-on, Beck said, because it’s the only way to offer any real help to people struggling in this area. [And it ain’t going away on its own]

Priests need to stop people-pleasing. They need to speak the truth in love.  [Dang right.  Eternal salvation is not a popularity contest, and Our Blessed Lord told us the world would hate us.  So stop avoiding the subjects that make people mad, to avoid them is to fail in duty] If people pack-up and go away, well, so be it…….

[The key……..] Beck said religious leaders need to start leading the faithful in acts of repentance for all the ways in which humanity has strayed from God’s plan for sexuality.

“We Catholics are in big trouble. It’s as if we are just taking orders from the world instead of from God. People need to get on their knees and repent. The Pope needs to call us to get on our knees and repent. The Church is supposed to be the light. We are supposed to stand fast with Truth and not compromise with the world.” [Agreed. Something went disastrously wrong starting in 1958]

The next post deals more with this woman’s sad history, both her unloving and disordered upbringing and then her descent into unfulfilling, depression-inducing, perverse relationship after relationship:

Robin Teresa Beck, 59, is not afraid to tell anyone, even Pope Francis himself, that homosexuality turned her life into a living hell of suffering, darkness, smashed dreams, and lasting regret. And after 35 years of homosexual behavior over the course of 12 relationships, Robin knows exactly what she’s talking about.

“From my experience, it is impossible to have a healthy gay relationship because it goes against the way God made us to be,” she told LifeSiteNews, calling it “cruel” for any religious leader to look favorable upon such a relationship……

……At a young age Robin witnessed how her father hit, shoved, and did “degrading things” to her mother. She remembers standing nearby watching her mother cry as she suffered abuse. Robin lived in deadly fear of her father, believing that he could kill her at the slightest provocation.  [Abusive parents (especially sexually), and distant relationships, especially with fathers, are hallmarks of those with a predilection for this lifestyle. Something fails to develop properly in the psyche due to lack of attention, abuse, or whatever, and that person spends the rest of their life trying to fill that void]

She has only one memory of any tenderness from her mother. She was about 3 years old when her mother one day unexpectedly drew her close to nestle her in her arms. It was the only time in Robin’s entire childhood that she felt “safe and happy.”……

…..Looking back, Robin now realizes that she continually chose partners who, like herself, were psychologically challenged. “I kept hoping to find a stable, loving, nurturing woman to heal my heart (in other words, I was looking for the mom I never had),” she wrote. 

Robin told LifeSiteNews that she now believes the “majority of lesbians who are craving relationships with other women have a deficiency in their relationship with their mother.”

“I know it’s true for me. I did not get the nurturing I needed from my mom. I had this woundedness from my mother and I tried to have it healed by turning to other women and asking them to give me what my mother was not able to.”…… [So she spent most of her adult life trying to make gomorrist relationships “work” for her.  None were successful.  The “best” lasted a few years, most must less than that.  She had at least a dozen relationships with other women.  This mirrors my own experience with everyone who has fallen into this most egregious sin – merry-go-round relationships, serial promiscuity, chasing the high of the next conquest only to get bored with it…….I’ve seen all this before in several people close to me.  As the woman states, there is simply no such thing as a healthy “gay” relationship] 

…….Robin had now hit rock bottom, accepting that there “could never be a ‘right’ relationship with another woman.” In the midst of her brokenness and anguish, she cried to God for help. She received the strength to surrender her sexuality over to God, vowing to follow his word on the matter from that day forward. This happened five years ago, on the weekend of her 54th birthday…….

……“As painful as my birthday weekend was, I am so grateful that it was awful enough to wake me up and bring me to my senses (and my knees). I walked away from gay life and haven’t for a split second thought about going back,” she wrote. 

Robin began instruction in the Roman Catholic faith and was received into the Catholic Church during Easter of 2010. She just celebrated five years of what she called “walking in victory.” She believes this is a “huge miracle.”

———–End Quote———–

I wonder if this woman had any interaction with the Courage apostolate.  It is not mentioned in the reports. She’s been a convert and chaste for less than 5 years. I pray she stays faithful.  Behaviors involving sexual perversion and incontinence are powerfully addicting and so easy to relapse into, like any addiction.  I pray she may be strengthened by Grace.

I listened to the testimony of another Catholic woman who had struggled with ssa. She was known to be a lesbian by those in her parish, including her pastor. Without their help or his, she managed to embrace holy chastity and escape the homosexual lifestyle…. Without the pastor or others knowing. One Sunday after Mass the pastor approached her and said, “you know, it’s OKAY to be GAY!!” To which she responded, “NO FATHER, IT IS NOT!!”

Very heartwarming. 2010 is also my anniversary of coming back to the church.

Tantumblogo:

Thanks for your positive mention of Courage. I knew someone who struggled with SSA and Courage was helpful.
