Undoubtedly, marriage is not a solution for all Muslims who are attracted to the same sex. But, it has been a solution for some. The LGBT activist agenda has branded the suggestion of opposite sex marriage as an option for same sex attracted individuals as bigotry and homophobia. But this is a powerful and eloquent response to that coming from the Christian community:
“Dale Larsen, now father of four and grandfather of nine, recognized his [same sex] attractions at an early age. After nine years of marriage, and during a period of stress, his attractions skyrocketed. A gay relative convinced me that I needed to be who I wasthat thats who I am and I needed to live my life that way. She arranged for him to go on a date with another man, and Dale recalls:
I looked over and I saw a couple, his brother and sister-in-law, and their little kids and they had the same aged kids I had and the same two boys and a girl. And all of a sudden in my mind, I saw my own family sitting there and the words that came into my mind were, If you continue down this path, and you can, you will lose them. I made a decision that that was itI was coming back home. I wanted a family so bad. I wanted my wife.
I loved my wife.
