From Drag Queen To "Ex-Gay" To Pastor

| Filed under: Gay Gay GaySad SadLGBT

Check out this clip from religious talk show Atlanta Live, featuring Pastor Ja'Von Crockett, who lived as a gay man and drag queen named Mother Cavalli, before he decided that his homosexual "lifestyle" was an obstacle and went to Pastor Willis Graham to "be used of God to bring out the man that he is now."

We don't think that there's anything wrong with trying to improve upon and better oneself, but our thoughts are best summed up in the immortal words of Lady GaGa…"I'm beautiful in my way, cuz God makes no mistakes! I was born this way, baby!"

We hope that Pastor Ja'Von is at peace with himself.

    Being a born-again doesn't necessary mean one is improving upon and better oneself. And these two are so ghey.

    First off, this video was boring. Second, I wasn't aware that drag queens are bad people in need of change! One of my best friends was a drag queen…super cool guy. I guess I don't see the problem here!

    The video doesn't work on my computer but I'll comment anyway. In my religion priest don't have sex in which implies that they don't live the homosexual lifestyle. Nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle for a job. Think about how celebrities give up privacy for their careers.

    Ex gay is like saying ex straight. It's normal. It's natural. You can't change it. It's not a fucking disease! Yeah, I just chose to feel alone, depressed, ostracised in high school. When are people going to get it?! Holy crap! And, now, I wouldn't change it for anything in the world; I've met the man of my dreams, met my best best friends, had the most awesome sex, had the best adventures, and made a most amazing family. Being gay is the most amazing gift ever…

    So he went from being out and proud to living on the DL. I bet he knows Bishop Long and when I say 'know' I mean that in the biblical sense. ;)

    If you believe in the Bible you will know that homosexuality is against God's will. I am more offended that some people say they believe in God and the Bible, but they pick and choose which sins they like and which sins they don't like. The Bible is not multiple choice…either you believe it or you don't. I would have more respect for gays if they would say "I know my lifestyle is against God's will and I am a sinner just like everyone else"…rather than hear them tell me that God approves of homosexuality.

    Re: Wrenn – Not many gay folks seek your respect, do they?
    Frankly I have no problem with Jesus but some of the churches that purport to represent him are full of crap.

    Re: Wrenn – believe in the bible? what about believing more in jesus' teaching's than a book that was put together by fallible humans, as we all are. What we know as the "canonized" bible (the one you speak of) was not assembled in anything like it's present form until the 3rd century by a council of bishops. They chose which books should be included in the bible, which books were inspired by God, by vote, just as we might vote on a law. Can you imagine that some books missed out on being The Word of God by one vote? Were they any more qualified to judge which books were divine than anyone living today? Is their judgement and knowledge any better than ours?
    So if you want to follow anything, follow Jesus' teachings which were love, acceptance, and charity among many others.

  17. 17

    @wrenn yes, and it also says that women are not allowed to speak on church, have to wear veils. So you have your own things to pick up on, too, right?

    Re: Wrenn – I agree with what Kimmers wrote to you. You criticise people who you say 'pick and choose' what they want to follow from the bible yet start to talk about the history of the bible (the numerous edits, the books which have been left out and forgotten) and not only do a lot of 'religious' people not know the history but tell them something which doesn't sit right with them and they'll refuse to listen, or they change the subject quick-smart. I would have more respect for religion if religious people would just say "I know I believe in some out there shit which can't be proven and, if anything, has been disproved as time has gone on but I'm gonna believe it anyway and use it as a reason to feel as though I'm better than others and can insult them because they don't believe in the same things that I do" rather than hear them tell me…well….anything at all really!! And besides how do you know what God approves of? Are you really saying you know what's on Gods mind? Because that is blasphemy as far as I know.

    Re: Wrenn – Oh yeah and don't get me started on the whole literal vs. metaphorical interpretations of the Bible. Show a religious person something in the Bible that doesn't make sense and they'll tell you it is just meant to be metaphorical. Then when they want to tell the gays they're evil or something similar and suddenly that's the Bible being interpreted in an apparently literal way. And you accuse others of picking and choosing.

    Nothing good comes from repressing your sexuality…he'll probably take it out on the choir boys.

    Oh, I's knows this thing. Um hmmm, she uses to preach at

    Okay, can someone please explain to me that if "I'm beautiful in my way, cuz God makes no mistakes! I was born this way" is true, why do people like Chastity Bono have sex change operations? They claim they were born the wrong gender? Wouldn't that make them a mistake? Which way is it? Either god doesn't make mistakes or he does? Which is it?

  23. 23

    You better spare me with that "Homosexuality is a sin" fuckshit! Homosexuality is no more of a sin than heterosexuality. Matter of fact, nontraditional sex period of any kind is considered a sin in some religions. There are so many fucking religions and so many fucking things people believe in — and some people don't even practice a fucking religion — that you simply cannot go there. Keep your religion YOUR fucking religion! Period. Hatin-ass homophobic hoes die slow inside and I curse your first born to be a floating, belligerent little fairy two times for that ass!

  24. 24

    God doesn't make mistakes, yes - but we are still all born sinners. And battling/resisting sin is the only way to true/complete relationship with God.

    here's a little Surprise for you…pastor Lavan is bottoming for his teacher…..this is so ridiculous…idon't understand why the try to be something they are not.

  26. 26

    Good for him!

    Re: Wrenn – I agree with you 100%. That's what I always say too.

    First gay rights then NAMBLA is gonna start fighting for their rights. Guess what. Everyone is so for gays but against pedophilia, but guess what. If sexual orientation is "in-born" then why do we fight pedophiles so much. Weren't they "born that way"? So why do we make their natural "in-born" desires a crime - a sin??? Just because you are "supposedly" born that way doesn't make it right. It is a SIN!

    Re: Sgirl – GREAT point!

    He prayed the gay away.

    "I'm beautiful in my own way, cuz God makes no mistakes. I'm on the right track, baby, I was born this way."* Lady Gaga's biggest fan. Yeah… RIGHT.

  31. 31

    If he chose to be a pastor - let him be . He has all right to do that if he feels better . No judging here .

  32. 32

    So they've clearly become lovers…. I don't know why he felt like he needed to "change" in the first place, but deep down, he obviously never will.

  33. 33

    I'm sorry but I don't believe this at all! For an ex gay he sure does have the the gay attitude! I'm from Atlanta, and I'm a homosexual male, and I'm ashamed that this is coming out of the city. I can see that being voted the gayest city in the U.S., brings all the religious thinkers, and preachers, to protest and attempt to get away from the way they are and were born. No matter how hard they try they will always be a homosexual. If God didn't want homosexual's than he would have never created us in the first place. There is a reason why we are all here on this Earth as one.
