On last night’s episode , Kevin (Charity’s husband) confirmed what we all knew – he has feelings for men. Oh, but he doesn’t know if he’s gay.
I kept wondering how their storyline would play out. At first, I didn’t realize that was her husband because I knew he was gay.
Charity is pregnant with their twins and Kevin just broke the news to her after being in denial for some time. Before he informed her of this, she said they would be able to work through it but she just wanted the truth. Why do people say that/make promises before they know the truth?
I don’t think I could stay with a man who has feelings for men. Nope. I couldn’t. Say what you want. That’s not in my ministry. Sure, it’s a double standard because it’s not uncommon for women to ‘go back and forth.’ But nahhh… I couldn’t stay with a man that has feelings for men; because feelings and thoughts eventually turn into actions and decisions.
I just can’t have that in my life. I’m not insecure; but, I can’t have that hanging over my head. Will my husband leave me for another man? Will I ever be enough? *Sidebar: I wonder how Donnie McClurkin’s fiancée feels…* Those are questions a woman should have to think about or have answered.
This is why parents need to be open with their kids. Let them be happy. If they’re gay, let them gay. Let them live in their truth. And parents, you too. Live your truth. It’s okay to have a child that’s gay. Accepting it will make everyone’s life easier.
Reminds of that Iyanla: Fix my Life episode where a minister married a single mother and turns out, he was gay. He cheated on her with multiple men. Turns out, he knew he was gay but married her because he was in denial. That’s where I draw the line. Don’t go bringing me and my children in your lies because that’s how people get hurt. Plenty of gay couples raise children and most of them turn out fine; it’s the ones raised in a home full of lies (whether the parents are gay or straight) that we have to worry about.
This is why Snapped has new episodes every Sunday. Because people like to lie. Just be honest with yourself – you’ll be able to sleep so much better.
It’s 2016. Ain’t nothing wrong with being gay. It’s perfectly okay.
I said that all to say, as a woman – could you be with a man that has either had feelings for me or was once gay and is now straight?
Let me know!
