I would have to agree that his post seems genuine. It is definitely a beautiful and very touching story.
I think his comment, "I want to make it very clear that while I have found a path that brings me profound joy and that is the right path for me, I don’t endorse this as the only path for somebody who is gay and religious. I will never, ever judge somebody else’s path as being “incorrect” and I know many people who have chosen different paths than myself", says it all.
This post is really about his journey. And it does not mean that it will work for other same sex attracted people.
I know that for me, that a life involving marriage to a woman would not have worked. In actual fact, I made a conscious decision before coming out, that a marriage to a woman would not make me happy. I wanted to have children – but I knew that a 'hetrosexual marriage' would only lead to regret for me, as I wanted / needed the ''companionship'' involved with a relationship with another man.
I have so many gay friends, who at one stage, were married to a woman or a man, and they had children, and in some cases they have grandchildren. Naturally, when they chose to end their hetrosexual marriage, their love for their children and their grandchildren has not lessened. And I knew that they were happier acknowledging that they are ''gay'' or ''same sex attracted'', and I could see that they were so much more content in their chosen same sex relationships.
