The big red pill

pill“Suppose”, a friend once challenged me, “that you were offered a big red pill called a ‘Straight pill’ which, if you took it, would make you completely and permanently heterosexual. Would you take it?” I pondered long and hard over the question, but eventually my answer was, “No”. For I felt grateful to God for making me who I am, a desire to honour that, to accept it, rejoice in it and give thanks for it.
