Catholic Milo Yiannopoulos Declares Himself 'Ex-Gay,' Consecrates to St. Joseph

As we begin the Novena to St. Joseph, the news that Milo Yiannopoulos, conservative commentator and former Breitbart editor, has renounced his gay lifestyle and consecrated himself to St. Joseph is a tremendous blessing to a world that kneels to homosexual culture and agendas.
In a recent interview with LifeSiteNews, the New York Times best-selling author "said he considers himself 'ex-gay' and 'sodomy-free.'
Understanding the strength and power of grace, more-so-than manmade rehabilitation programs, Yiannopoulos explained that “secular attempts at recovery from sin are either temporary or completely ineffective.”
This realization and Catholic faith has led to his decision to consecrate himself to St. Joseph, asserting that “Salvation can only be achieved through devotion to Christ and the works of the Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church."
“St. Joseph is the spiritual father figure of the Holy Family. In this time of gender madness, devoting myself to the male protector of the Infant Jesus is an act of faith in God’s Holy Patriarch, and a rejection of the Terror of transsexuals,” Yiannopoulos said.
In full transparency about his previous partner and current room-mate, Yiannopoulos added that “the guy I live with has been demoted to housemate." The transition, Yiannopoulos describes as "a gradual uncovering," has been difficult, but it appears a friendly relationship remains intact.
In an act of spiritual support, Bishop Joseph Strickland of the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, showed his support on Twitter and beseeched St. Joseph, the "Immaculate Virgin Mary [and] all of the saints [to] pray for all of God's children to 'repent and believe the Gospel.'
St. Joseph, pray for Milo Yiannopoulos and all who are struggling with homosexual temptations.
In Christ Crucified and the Most Victorious Heart of Jesus.
