June 21, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – One year after rejecting homosexuality and beginning a chaste life, Milo Yiannopoulos has delivered a message of hope to his “gay” brothers and friends.
“It’s a year from the day I said I was going to put sodomy and lust behind me and live more closely to God’s wishes for me,” began Yiannopoulos in a video published Friday, “and since I did that, everything in my life has begun to get better.”
In March, Yiannopoulos revealed that he now that he describes himself as “Ex-Gay” and “sodomy free,” and that he was leading a daily consecration to St. Joseph online.
Prayer, accountability, and tough love
“I didn’t wake up today especially celebratory, but rather, prayerful, because I’m aware that I have a responsibility to share this gift with others,” explained Yiannopoulos.
He said he has managed to get where he is now through prayer, “appealing to our heavenly Father for the strength to resist urges.” He also offered thanks to his followers and to “the haters, the skeptics, the deniers. It’s the scorn and doubt poured upon this … that has made it a pleasure to prove people wrong.”
“It’s also those of you who have been keeping me accountable,” he acknowledged. “I’ve always said on the show and sometimes in strong language — sometimes in a way that offends people — that tough love is the love that matters.”
“My readers and listeners have given me just that,” he said. “They’ve given me a lot of tough love, and without that, I don’t know if I’d be here today.”
In the latest in a series of official endorsements by the GOP, the Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel recently issued a statement promoting so-called "pride" month and the agenda of the LGBT movement.
By forcing the LGBT agenda on the party faithful and would-be Republican voters, the RNC is seriously disrespecting their mostly conservative and Christian values.
Please SIGN this urgent petition to the RNC telling them to stop promoting the normalization of homosexual and transgender lifestyles, and the sexualization of politics in the United States.
Ever since Romney McDaniel took over as the head of the RNC in 2017, the leadership of the party has been tying itself, ever-more-closely, to this socially, morally and politically corrupt agenda, much to the dismay of the party faithful.
This is a colossal mistake for the party and society for three reasons:
- Attempting to normalize a lifestyle which is objectively disordered, is wrong and deceptive. The natural family and marriage between one man and one woman should be supported, not practices which have a decidedly destructive effect on individuals and society.
- If the party gives in to the LGBT agenda now, LGBT activists will never be satisfied. They will force the GOP to push more and more aberrant views, practices, policy and laws. That will be unhealthy for society and, ultimately, bad for the party, as people, who would otherwise support the party, will be driven away by pandering to this agenda which is based on personal, rather than societal, issues.
- By spending time and resources trying to court the LGBT community, which makes up 1-2% of the voting population, the GOP is losing opportunities to gain the support of much larger constituencies in the country, like Hispanic and Black voters, who make up 26%+ of the vote. Recent elections prove that Hispanics and Blacks can be won over to the party on economic policy and other substantive issues, rather than on identity politics.
Of course, people with homosexual inclinations must be respected, but the normalization of homosexuality (and, other sexually-confused inclinations) in society must be rejected.
Ultimately, the Republican Party should stand for the common good, not just the good of the individual based on sexual practices which do not actually benefit society. Otherwise, they will become indistinguishable from the other major party.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which tells the GOP to stop promoting the harmful LGBT agenda and the so-called 'pride' events which endanger the innocence and morals of everyone involved.

“Born this way” is a lie. It’s propaganda. It’s not true. You can change.
“I know I have a responsibility, a spiritual and moral obligation to make good to the people I’ve hurt, and to reach minds that I haven’t touched yet and offer them help if I can to embark on the same journey that I’m currently engaged on,” he said.
This message today is for you: If you’re one of those people that thinks of themselves as ‘gay,’ but in the back of your mind something has always not quite been right about it; You’ve sort of known that this is not really what you want. Perhaps you’ve looked at gay ‘Pride’ as I have with a mix of consternation and horror; something twists in the pit of your stomach when you see it?
If that does describe you — and even if it doesn’t — I have good news for you: “Born this way” is a lie. It’s propaganda. It’s not true.
You can get better. You can change. You can live as you were always supposed to. When you do that, everything in your life will start to get better. It has for me.
Yiannopoulos explained that he moved to Florida in order to open up a clinic for other men who suffer from same-sex attraction, and that fundraising and interviewing therapists who might work at the center has already begun.
“We’re not quite open yet,” allowed Yiannopoulos, “therefore today my message to you, for now, is merely one of hope.”
This does not have to be your life. It can be better than this. I’ve been where you are now. I know what keeps you up at night. I know what haunts and torments you, and it doesn’t have to be the end, it doesn’t just have to be this for you.
“So watch this space. Try in whatever small, small way you can to make changes in your life. Seek out the advice of your priest,” urged Yiannopoulos.
“In the meantime, I love you,” he declared, “and I’m going to do everything I can to provide you with the tools you need to get better.”
“What you feel at the moment — an inexorable and unavoidable sexuality — is just the product of trauma that you might not even realize you suffered, but you did.”
“I’m going to help you,” he promised.
In March, Yiannopoulos rocked the world when he first announced his plan to open a “reparative therapy” center in the Sunshine state.
“There is an enormous demand for this among people who believe they’ve been led astray by … the gay establishment,” Yiannopoulos told the New York Post.
“I think part of that is the resurgence of religious, socially conservative, kind of reactionary politics among noisy young conservatives,” asserted Yiannopoulos. “People who are kind of like DMing me now,” asking “‘where do I send the f–king check?’ You know, like, get me in your program.”
“Basically, people who don’t believe in it call it ‘conversion therapy,’ and people who do believe in it call it ‘reparative therapy,'” he explained. “For those people to suggest that reparative therapy is somehow damaging to people’s self-esteem, is so laughably preposterous, I don’t take it seriously.”
Never one to mince words, Yiannopoulos described the “gay lobby” as “poisonous and wicked and evil,” in part because it has undermined reparative therapy.
“Conversion therapy has a terrible reputation for precisely the reason that a lot of other things associated closely with either the religious right or the nationalist right have a terrible reputation,” he said, “because they’ve been lied about consistently and strategically for decades.”
“I happen to think that trying to unravel that, unwind it and rescue people from it is a noble cause,” said Yiannopoulos, referring to “the first generation” of gay millennials “whose sexuality is inextricably linked and wrapped up with their political positions.”
“And I also think that you set it against the extraordinary evil of the gay lobby that encourages this, you know, monolithic, ludicrous form of behavior that says to people that ‘if you want to find love, you have to behave’” the way that the gay lobby expects people to behave.
