Ex-Lesbian Linda Jernigan Tells Pastors That Alcohol and Drug Addiction Are Part of the ‘Homosexual Lifestyle’

The Illinois Family Institute recently hosted former lesbian Linda Jernigan at an event for pastors. (I’m deeply offended that they didn’t send me an invitation.)

What did she say to the crowd? You have to hear this to believe it:

I was with this young lady for nearly 15 years, but I was battling alcohol addiction and drug addiction which comes with the homosexual lifestyle. And I’m telling you that most homosexuals that you see, they do have issues with substance abuse. Have you ever asked yourself why do they have so many problems with alcohol, with drugs…? ‘Cause you need to be inebriated to do the things that the homosexual lifestyle calls for you to do.

The average person in their right mind cannot do that in their right mind, so you need to go into another realm with all of these other substances that will take you into another spiritual realm, so that you can do the things that you needed to do. So I was not exempt. I had an alcohol problem. I had a drug problem…

… I’m talking to the Lord and I told him, I said, “God, there’s no way that you and I could be together because I was born this way.” And I clearly heard the voice of the Lord. He did not tell me, “Linda you weren’t born that way. He didn’t tell me, “Naw, I ain’t created you that way.” He said, “It doesn’t even matter how you think you were born, I have the power to make you be born again!” And that is the issue that we need to be telling homosexuals today…

Incredible. Jernigan suffered from alcoholism and drug abuse… so other gay people must be just like her!

The logic is airtight. And if it’s not, I guess alcohol and drugs can fix that problem.
