Getting to become friends with many people who experience SSA has been wonderful for Maureen and me. I’d not really thought about this until I saw the video below, but there is a logical reason why I often sense a more intense loyalty, faithfulness, and emotional commitment from my friends with SSA. As Vaughan articulates towards the end of this video, because they choose to honor God through remaining celibate and not acting out, they often realize how important their everyday friendships are to them.

I’m sure that’s even more true for my Christian brothers and sisters with SSA, because of the precious faith we share. I feel kinda’ stupid for not recognizing this sooner. Listen to Vaughan’s story here:
