The Hill reports that McKrae Game, 51, who founded and led Hope for Wholeness in South Carolina, publicly announced he is gay and, in a recent Facebook post, said he was “wrong”, adding: “Please forgive me”.
Here are the best parts from his Facebook post:
I certainly regret where I caused harm.
Promoting the triadic model that blamed parents and conversion or prayer therapy, that made many people believe that their orientation was wrong, bad, sinful, evil, and worse that they could change was absolutely harmful.
It’s all in my past, but many, way TOO MANY continue believing that there is something wrong with themselves and wrong with people that choose to live their lives honestly and open as gay, lesbian, trans, etc. Learn to love yourself and others.
The very harmful cycle of self shame and condemnation has to stop. It’s literally killing people!! Learn to love. Learn to love yourself and others. ❤️
Wow, talk about doing a complete 180.
McKrae also released this video explaining himself in more detail:
Pretty wild to think this guy spent his 30s and 40s preaching homophobia and working tirelessly to turn gay men straight, only to finally accept at age 51 that he is in fact a homosexual himself. I’m sure you can blame some of that on his environment and surroundings, but it’s still pretty tragic to only find the balls to be yourself at 51. Oh well, better late than never I guess.
