Christian recording artist Ray Boltz says he is happier now living as an openly gay man than he was being a married man and father.
The award winning artist is best known for the Christian song classic entitled "Thank You." He has sold millions of Christian records and has won three Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association.
Boltz says he told his wife and children he was gay five years ago. He and his wife have since divorced.
After years of praying for God to remove his homosexual desires, Boltz says he now believes God accepts him as he his and that He created him that way.
Today, Boltz performs his music in churches that bless gay relationships.
