In 2002, K. Godfrey Easter wrote Love Lifted Me: In Spite of the Church about his experience as a gay Christian.
He has now written Love Lifted Me Because of the Church: Why One Can NOT Be Gay & Christian reversing his position and claiming now to be ex-gay.
He explains his reorientation as:
“All I can say is that inside me, the instant love cataclysmically collided with wisdom a great separation took place – me from homosexuality. In his second book, Easter continues answering, “God did it! I was drawn back from perdition by love’s long-suffering and wisdom’s seductive allure.”
Easter only sold about 5,000 copies of his first book. Visitors to his website are now encouraged to buy both books for comparison’s sake.
