A former professor of women’s studies at Syracuse University recently shared her personal journey from lesbian feminist to Christ-follower.
During an episode of The Becket Cook Show, Rosaria Butterfield explained how converting to Christianity radically transformed her life, identity, and relationships.
Butterfield noted that her story of coming to faith began while working on her 2013 book, The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert: An English Professor’s Journey into Christian Faith. She also met a Presbyterian pastor who played an integral part in opening her eyes and heart to the Lord.
“I talk about what it was like to meet a pastor, who was my neighbor when I was a lesbian, feminist, activist, professor,” Butterfield said. “I met Ken Smith, the pastor who the Lord used in my conversion. I thought this man is really smart. He and his wife Floy welcomed me into their world and they came into my world and they didn’t act as though I was polluting them. Early on in our friendship, Ken said to me ‘there’s a difference between acceptance and approval and if you can live with that difference, I can live with that difference.'”
