**Yeah, I Know, there's nothing about me on this page... that's because I'm an ex-born again, and what's there to say... interesting story though. I'll tell you some time. But in the meantime, If you have friends or family members that are born again and homophobic, click here and maybe I can explain them to you alittle. Note: I fully respect anyone's right to be born again and this is not meant as an insult, but mearly as an Explanation of the born again homophobe to the non-believer, not an excuse for them.NOTE: Just because some one is born again DOES NOT mean that they are homophobic! Resources for the Lesbigaytrans Born Again and others Hey, just because it didn't work for me doesn't mean it can't work for you.
