Orlando shooting survivor says Jesus cured him from being gay


Luis Ruiz was injured in the June 2016 attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando that took 49 lives including some people he called his friends. This tragedy turned the man’s life inside out and he became a deeply religious Christian. He even says that he is not attracted to men anymore and he understood it when he turned his heart to Christ. He inspires other people to do the same, though most LGBT activists are not ready to share such views. We don’t mean that LGB T activists are against Christianity, there is a number of deeply believing Christians who are LGBT. But they are against the idea that sexuality can be changed and we also think that it cannot, though some people (only some, not all) may choose to keep celibacy if they want to escape same-sex attractions. But Mr. Ruiz thinks he has changed. He wrote: “Going through old pictures of the night of Pulse a memory were my struggles of perversion, heavy drinking to drown out everything and having promiscuous sex that led to HIV my struggles were real! The enemy had its grip and now God has taken me from that moment and has given me Christ Jesus I’ve grown to know his love in a deeper level. 2 out of the 49 were my close friends and are no longer with us. They lost their life that night. I should have been number 50 but now I have the chance to live in relationship and not religion – not just loving Christ but being in love with Christ and sharing His love. I know who I am and I am not defined with who the enemy says I use to be – but who Christ Jesus says I am.” It was his decision and everybody should respect it, but it still does not mean that people can change their sexuality and should be forced to accept the religion they do not support.
