I wasn’t really prepared for the graphic descriptions of life in the Castro District of San Francisco. I was stunned by what actually goes on and how entranced some of those who follow a debased lifestyle are with their debauchery, trashing all self-respect for a momentary thrill. The book was done in as good taste as a Catholic Christian can write it but none-the-less, pretty heavy stuff!
Joseph makes us feel what it is like to be deeply in the clutches of the enemy of our souls. He shared with us the pain and suffering he felt when his good friends died (and are still dying) from A.I.D.S. and suicide. He brought us on the journey of his growing up years, always relating to his family in a loving and respectful way although many who succumb to this lifestyle have had terrible childhoods. He relates how his moral descent came as a child when he was exposed to pornography and it became an addiction. He also related how it was only when he hit rock bottom when in his late 20’s and was near death, that he began his recovery. He also wrote about his own possession and delivery from the belly of enemy of souls which came as a surprise to him as he had no idea there was a foreign body living within him.
Thank you Joseph for sharing your life and giving us a glimpse of what is really happening in the psyche’s of those entrenched in that lifestyle. Thank you Joseph for also sharing your continuing saga of your reformed life through your website in an attempt to educate and help others who may be looking to make sense of life. May God Bless You and keep you safe !!
