Christian Rock Star Comes Out

I have to admit that I really like seeing high profile Christians coming out as gay vs anyone else. There’s something so satisfying when their family’s world is shattered. I mean if God created you, don’t you think God knows that you’re gay? If you believe he doesn’t make mistakes and that he knows your inner-most thoughts/desires, then it’s logical he knows that he made you gay. You were gay before you were born. Humanity is the one with the problem of homosexuality. An artist who creates something knows every detail of his or her creation. You may not like parts of that creation, but the one who created it will know every intimate detail and be perfectly at ease with any flaws discovered.

Trey Pearson, the founding member of Christian rock group Everyday Sunday, kept his sexuality secret for decades. Then, on Tuesday, he came out as gay in an open letter to his fans, published in (614) Columbus, explaining the daily difficulty he faced in pretending to be something he wasn’t for fear of how his church, his God, his family and his friends would respond.

“I grew up in a very conservative Christian home where I was taught that my sexual orientation was a matter of choice, and had put all my faith into that,” Pearson wrote.
