Far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, who two months ago announced he no longer considers himself to be gay but rather is “sodomy-free’, released a video where he purported to throw his $150,000 engagement ring, which he calls his “sodomy stone” into the ocean, consecrating and seeking his new identity as an ex-gay.
In typical provocateur style, he got on a boat, got drunk, and allegedly tossed it overboard while Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” played.
Yiannopoulos says he initially planned to toss it out of a helicopter into a volcano, Mount Doom/ Lord of the Rings style, but had to change his plans when he realized how expensive it would be an how poor her is, opting to charter a boat instead. He explains:
It’s called the sodomy stone that’s the name I’ve given to the gigantic engagement ring I bought myself as part of a union that I now regard as somewhat infernal. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what’s real and what’s not real in my life, and thinking about the trappings of my former life, that it would be a good idea to get rid of it…
I’ve prayed, I’ve drunk an enormous amount of vodka and I’ve reminded myself that nothing beautiful or true can be made to grow on a foundation of wickedness.”
While he threw something into the ocean, there is no way of knowing if the ring actually was his sodomy stone worth north of six figures. This is particularly true when he ended the video with a tracking shot of his bible and a case full of his merch, claiming “My checking account has about $800 in it right now, and the last ten years have exhausted my savings. But this is something I had to do. You can’t build something beautiful and true on a bedrock of filth and lies.”
Two months ago Milo explains that this newfound commitment to be an ex-gay has taken a toll on his marriage to husband John Lewis, a man whom he allegedly married in 2017, saying that he has been “demoted to housemate.”
Well, the guy I live with has been demoted to housemate, which hasn’t been easy for either of us. It helps that I can still just about afford to keep him in Givenchy and a new Porsche every year. Could be worse for him, I guess.
My own life has changed dramatically, though it crept up on me while I wasn’t paying attention. I’m someone who responds to micromanagement and accountability, so I’ve found counting days an effective bulwark against sin. In the last 250 days I’ve only slipped once, which is a lot better than I predicted I would do…
The best metaphor I know is that of a flower blooming – “Whatever is loving in man and whatever is lovable in man is Christ in man.” I take this to mean that the more love and the less lust in us, the more we cease to obscure Christ and instead reveal Him, in whose image we are made.
I don’t mean to suggest it’s been easy, just simple: Our Lord endured worse than any of us and promised us that we have to take up a heavy cross each day
