ABC News' Brian Ross overhypes homosexual reorientation story

The world of politics, religion and media has converged  in a stranger than fiction drama. Feeding off the illogical hate of homosexual activists, the liberal news media seems to be fascinated with former homosexuals. First there was Lisa Ling’s “pray away the gay” slur-o-rama where she mocked God’s power to transform sexually broken people. That show included a  long time friend Janet Boynes. Then, Dr. Drew, using the same flawed and biased premise, aired a show called ” Can you pray away the gay? also featuring Janet Boynes.  As we noted before, such a phrase is the social equivalent of calling a black person a nigger.

The problem, you see, is that homosexual activists (aided by “professionals” at the nation’s mental health organizations) believe that a person can change their [homosexual] behavior, but their “sexual orientation”? Absolutely, 100% impossible.

But how does the opinion of educated people fare against the wisdom of God?

“I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. Matthew 19:26

To rephrase:

1. Is changing a man or woman’s sexual orientation too hard for God?

2. Jesus says that men dont have the ability to change certain things, but when GOD is in the equation, what men say is impossible (like changing sexual orientation) becomes possible.

So, this latest mock-up comes via ABC News.

In continued efforts to prove former homosexuals, exlesbians and yes even their favorite mock term exgays don’t exist they enlisted the investigative expertise of ABC News CHIEF investigative journalist Brian Ross.  To ABC, this apparently was on the scope of the Watergate scandal. But Ross has a reputation. Gawker said Ross “has a breathtaking record of recklessly inaccurate, overhyped stories that don’t live up to the headline.” Ross held true to form with this “investigative story”.

Ross used recycled video from an internet based homosexual organization ironically called Truth Wins Out (TWO). TWO has doggedly sought legitimacy by claiming that former homosexuals are not actually former homosexuals.  Thus, the video was  taken by an “undercover” homosexual activist who wanted to tell the world some shocking news.  Presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann’s husband has a Christian counseling practice that tells people sexual orientation isn’t set in stone. A Christian counseling practice that tells men and women they can change from homosexuality. Shocking news indeed.

Americans for Truth about homosexuality provides more detail about the faux sting.

Once a greatly feared investigative reporter, Brian Ross has been reduced to recycling left-wing material from the homosexual lobby. But the pathetic hit job he narrated on Monday’s ABC Nightline show on GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has backfired in a big way. The charge was that the Bachmann family counseling service engages in terrible things by teaching homosexuals how to leave their disease-ridden lifestyle.

Ross called this method of counseling, which emphasizes religious conversion, “highly controversial” and said it “could become a campaign issue.” Ironically, however, he presented evidence that ex-homosexuals do in fact exist

It is a sign of the dominance of the homosexual lobby in the media business that such a program would even be aired. The upcoming National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association convention features “Today” show co-anchor Ann Curry and CNN’s Don Lemon as keynote speakers.

The ABC piece, “Michele Bachmann Clinic: Where You Can Pray Away the Gay?,” was constructed in such a way as to suggest that ex-homosexuals are non-existent, even though the Brian Ross report itself noted the presence of books by a “self-proclaimed ex-lesbian” in the counseling center. A video from the ex-lesbian, Janet Boynes, was even shown briefly on the air. This was supposed to be shocking.

Of course, the notion of the Bible condemning homosexual behavior, reflected in several passages, was viewed as bizarre and intolerant.

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth says the phrase, “pray away the gay,” is intended to ridicule Christians and comes directly from homosexual activist Wayne Besen’s group, Truth Wins Out. LaBarbera asks, “Why are the major media repeating these hateful attack slogans by radical gay activists?”

He explains, “We don’t mock the idea of leaving drug addiction or alcoholism with God’s help. Why is it acceptable to mock faith in God to overcome unwanted behaviors like homosexuality in their lives?”

“Wayne Besen’s thesis is that ex-gays don’t exist,” noted LaBarbera. But Janet Boynes is a real person and absolute proof that one can leave the homosexual lifestyle.

Perhaps without realizing it, Ross has presented evidence of the homosexual “change” that he was trying to discredit.

“The homosexual lobby simply can’t deal with the reality that ‘gays’ can change (usually with God’s help),” LaBarbera adds. His group recently hosted an event with another ex-lesbian, Linda Jernigan.

Its amazing that in 2011 with all the talk of “being yourself”, being “open and honest”, tolerance, acceptance and equality, homosexual activists want to tell us we have to remain enslaved to something God didn’t create us to be.

Homosexuals going “undercover” to prove us former homosexuals don’t exist is nothing new, but its the activist’s #1 tactic to stir up public hatred and disbelief against people who were formerly like them. Several years ago, an “undercover” gay activist showed up at one of our meetings in Atlanta.  After I rebuke her juvenile antics (and story), she claimed she was set up by the gay newspaper editor and they changed her words after she wrote the story.

If homosexuals don’t want to change, then the solution is simple:  don’t go to a Christian counselor who will tell you that you can.

Update: CBN interviews Mark Yarhouse about the possibility of change from homosexuality which is referred to as “orientation”. When the context of the argument is about “orientation”, a scientific/pyschological construct, the ability to leverage a biblical perspective is greatly diminished. The bible doesnt address orientation per se, but it does address the soul and spirit and intangible nature of mankind both in terms of sin and holiness. See our story Does the Bible address sexual orientation. CBN Video of the interview below.

GCMW talks with Dr. Michael Brown about "queer things"

In an exclusive and extensive interview with GCM Watch, noted international author and teacher and Dr. Michael Brown shares insight on just what has happened to America when it collided with homosexual activism.  His well documented book A Queer Thing Happened to America chronicles the startling darkness that has accompanied the homosexual movement into American culture.  In contrast to the masked public image of the gay movement, Brown’s books proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the homosexual movement’s deception is as alarming as it gets.

Gay Christian Movement Watch: Congratulations on this phenomenal book Dr. Brown. I’d like to start by asking you if this book represents an evolution of sorts in terms of how you have viewed the homosexual movement in America?

Dr. Michael Brown: Thanks for the kind words about the book. Yes, it absolutely does represent an evolution in terms of how I have viewed the homosexual movement in America. As I did the research and observed the developments in our society, my feelings went from serious concern to grave alarm, yet at the same time, my heart began to break more and more for the people involved. So, I deeply love those who indentify as GLBT while firmly opposing their activism, which to them, of course, is a complete contradiction.

GCMW: How you think the average American will react to seeing this? I mean some of the information can be quite stunning to someone who isn’t aware of the depth of depravity among this subculture.

MB: The average American will be shocked on quite a few levels. In fact, I’ve heard from people who have been actively involved in dealing with the relevant social and moral and religious issues that they have been shocked by what they’ve read. First, it’s shocking to see how widespread and pervasive gay activism is in our culture; second, it’s shocking to see how successful that activism has been, especially in such a short period of time; third, it’s shocking to see how this activism is trumping religious liberties and freedoms of conscience; fourth, it’s shocking to see how the trajectory of homosexual ideology actually undermines the very foundations of male-female gender; and fifth, it’s shocking to see how, in some segments of the homosexual community (even religious ones), the sexual fixation is extreme.

GCMW: The book has almost 90 pages of endnotes. Why was it necessary for you to so heavily document your writing?

MB: There are more than 1,500 endnotes in the book, and if we didn’t use such a small font for the notes, we would have ended up with many more pages. For me, though, it was very important to document everything carefully and fairly. Not only is it my habit to do meticulous research (I earned my Ph.D. in Near Eastern Languages and Literatures from New York University, and so I I’m trained to look carefully at the original sources), but I also wanted it to be clear that I wasn’t simply citing the latest internet rumor, that I had done my homework, and that those questioning me – and I knew there would be plenty of critics – would be able to check the sources for themselves. I also wanted to allow those with whom I differed to present their positions in their own words, in context, with reference to the original sources.

GCMW: We’ve  done a lot of documenting on the excesses of the gay christian movement and in “A queer thing” you devote a chapter [10] to this. What stands out most about the gay religious movement to you?

MB: That’s a big question, and one that’s especially painful, since I’m sure there are many sincere people going through very intense personal struggles in the gay christian movement. Can you imagine how “liberating” it is for some of them to conclude that, “God made me gay and the Bible doesn’t oppose loving, committed, same-sex relationships”? It’s a very powerful deception, for sure. But there’s another side to that deception, one that I focus on in Chapter Ten. There is often a terribly disturbing, perverted reading of many holy texts in the Scriptures, a sexual focus that produces horrific and deviant interpretations. I was so troubled after writing the final lines to that chapter that I went into another room in our house where my wife was doing some work and broke down crying. To be sure, there are “gay Christian” advocates who have accused me of cherry picking and just looking for perverted interpretations, but the truth is that I simply began to build up a library of major “gay Christian” volumes (actually, getting some “gay Jewish” books as well), and then I began to go through the material and document what I found. Even then, I could not get myself to reproduce some of the quotes – they were just too vile – and I had to summarize some of the content. Of course, I’m aware that not all “gay Christians” read the Bible this way, but to the extent they claim that God made them gay, that their same-sex, sexual relationships can be sanctioned by God, and that, perhaps, men like David and Jonathan or women like Ruth and Naomi were gays and lesbians, to that extent they have seriously misrepresented the Lord and hurt themselves.

GCMW: Look forward about 10 years in America and tell me what you see with this issue.

MB: Barring some kind of spiritual awakening that leads to a moral and cultural revolution, that’s a very frightening prospect. I see the complete normalizing of homosexuality, bisexuality, and transgenderism to the point that anyone who does not affirm all manner of GLBT identification and behavior will be viewed by society as a bigoted extremist, akin to a member of the KKK. I see schools across the nation fully embracing a full-fledged, gay-slanted curriculum, with no option for parents to opt their kids out, and with strong encouragement for kids to “come out” as GLBT at younger and younger ages (becoming sexually active at younger and younger ages as well; in fact, given enough time, there will be a push to lower the age of consent). In fact, I could easily see gay-slanted curricula being mandated for private religious schools and even home schools. I see the complete breaking down of the “gender dichotomy,” so that more and more people will identify as genderless or multi-gender or gender non-conforming, to the point that men in dresses using a ladies room will be considered quite normal. I see same-sex marriages becoming the law of the land, meaning, once again, that those who do not affirm such unions will be codified as bigots (which, of course, will also be the case as for more “non-discrimination” laws are passed based on gender identity and sexual orientation). I see religious liberties and freedoms of conscience being negated by sexual liberties and freedoms, and I see it becoming illegal for counselors and therapists and, one day, even pastors, to tell homosexuals that they can change their sexual orientation – and this is just for starters. And yet deep down, I believe that God will have mercy on our land and send an awakening, but only if we get to a point of spiritual desperation.

GCMW: A New York Times story recently revealed that gay marriage is devoid of the same sexual standards (like adultery) of biblical heterosexual marriage. Is this something that could eventually spread to the general population of marriage?

MB: You’re talking about what some homosexual men call “open monogamy,” which means that they are primarily involved with one person – living together with some level of commitment, possibly even a formal marriage certificate – and yet they acknowledge there will not be complete sexual fidelity. In fact, some of them are convinced that this is the key to a long-term, successful relationship. In my opinion, this reflects two things: First, it reflects the fact that two men do not have the moderating, tempering effect of a woman in their lives, hence their sexual appetites and fixations are not moderated as would happen in a normal, male-female relationship. It is a well-documented fact (and I discuss it in the book) that homosexual and bisexual men are more sexually active than heterosexual men. Second, it reflects the general moral collapse of our culture, where premarital sex has been the norm for more than a generation; where more and more kids are born out of wedlock; where TV shows celebrate adultery and polyamory and polygamy and where being a prostitute or stripper is something to be celebrated.

GCMW: It’s hard to believe that Christian publishers were afraid to publish the book. Has it gotten that bad?

MB: Yes, it has gotten that bad. I did discuss the project with one particular Christian publisher, and we agreed that what they were looking for and what I was writing were not the best match. Beyond that, it was simply a matter of rejecting the manuscript for a number of reasons (despite my good publishing record as the successful author of twenty books). For some, this was a lost war already. No need to beat a dead horse! For others, this was the wrong strategy. In other words, let’s not fight these cultural battles anymore, let’s just love the people. Others felt the contents were too controversial; all felt the name needed to change (which is so ironic in that the many secular and LGBT folks I talked with about the title had no objection to it all, with some really liking it). I was told by some that they agreed with the book but it would be too costly to publish (this was from a strong conservative publisher who feared bookstore boycotts of his other titles and loss of good authors), and all this was before the book got to be as long as it was, so the length wasn’t the issue then. Others told me plainly the subject just wouldn’t sell today. In no case did anyone criticize the research, the quality of the writing, or the accuracy of the content, nor did anyone take issue with the tone of the book itself.

GCMW: We think homosexual activism is the new social bully on the block. With such overbearing demands of acceptance being forced so relentlessly, why don’t we see the church community fighting with more passion?

MB: It is because to a great extent, many church leaders have lost their courage. On the one hand, we don’t want to be perceived as intolerant, and the moment we are compared with segregationists and slave-owners of the past, we cave in, not having good answers when we are accused of lacking love. Sadly, many Christians were on the wrong side of these issues in our past, and we don’t want to be on the wrong side again, and so, even though we disagree with homosexual practice, we dare not speak up against it. But it goes deeper than that. It’s too costly. We might offend some congregants. We might rustle some feathers. We might get an angry protest outside our lovely building. We might get blasted in the local newspaper. The way of compromise is much easier, and we subtly and unconsciously justify it in the name of wisdom or love. And yet it goes even deeper than that. In many ways, this is just a symptom of our larger compromise with the world, our failure to take up the cross and follow Jesus, the culture changing us rather than us changing the culture. Dr. Martin Luther King spoke this very relevant warning, and I truly believe it is a picture of what we have become today. He said, “The Church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. . . . If the Church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.”

GCMW: You cited an incident where a gay activist openly posted a graphic, racist death threat to me [page 81], yet nothing was done to him. What do you think would have happened had I done the same to him?

MB: Your face might have been blasted all over the internet and the news media as the latest example of a “God hates fags” preacher, and worse still, you might have been charged with instigating a hate crime of some sort. This much is sure: It’s a lot worse to be labeled anti-gay than anti-black today.

GCMW: I’m interested to know if any prominent church leaders have weighed in on the book. If not, do you think they will?

MB: I’m getting some very encouraging comments from family ministry leaders so far – to the point of saying that this is now THE book on the subject and it should be mandatory reading for all Christian leaders – but their endorsement is not surprising, although I’m blessed by their enthusiasm. As for other, prominent church leaders, some are coming out with strong endorsements, but they are the more socially active types. In contrast, one mega-church pastor, who is a good friend of mine, told me that there is not another mega-church pastor he knows in his city who will even address the issue of homosexuality from the pulpit – even in terms of sexual behavior as opposed to gay activism. That being said, because I’ve had a good track record of ministry for several decades, including being a seminary professor, being involved in world missions, in Jewish outreach, and in revival movements, and because, by God’s grace, don’t rail against those who oppose me, some are willing to rally together with me. Also, things are declining so rapidly around us that they’re realizing they must wake up to what’s happening and take a stand. But I might be too optimistic. This is a tough nut to crack right now, not because of spiritual enlightenment but because of spiritual apathy and confusion.

'Homophobia' tricks the black community

Dallas based evangelist G. Craige Lewis, known for his expose of  hip hop idolatry in the church, writes a heavy hitting post on his blog about homosexuality, homosexuals, homophobia and the black community. The bulk of the news isnt good. But Lewis lays it out in typical Lewis fashion: straight to the point with a prophetic edge.

As we have said before homosexual activists (political and religious)  act as if  homophobia  is as deadly as a gallon of anthrax. They use  the accusations consistently as weapons of intimidation and discrimination to destroy politicians, religious leaders, neighbors, corporate heads, and anyone who would dare disagree with the elitist demagoguery of the gay rights movement.

The “official” definition of homophobia as set forth by gay orthodoxy is an “irrational fear and hatred of lesbian and gay people that is produced by bias in a society or culture” (via SIECUS). Note the inclusion of the word “hatred.”

But Lewis pulls apart the word fallacy.

…let’s define homophobia. It’s a trick word that is used by modern day homosexuals to describe people that are against their lifestyle or sexual preference. But the word itself does not describe them or the fear of them. The phrase “homo” refers to the genus of all modern humans. But the phrase “phobia” means an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something. So, they are essentially using this word to describe the fear of homosexuals, but it actually means the fear of human beings! That’s right. They want those of us that are against their sexual preferences to be viewed as a fearful individual that is irrationally afraid of humans and should be psychologically evaluated!

The accusations of homophobia are homosexuals attempt to overcompensate for what they know is against God’s plan, will and creation. How do you deflect attention away from your own sins? Find a boogeyman, a scapegoat and accuse it often.

In every walk of life, we make choices. These choices will get us approved by some and rejected by others. But the homosexual doesn’t want ANY rejection because all rejection points to that personal rejection they are feeling deep down inside because they are warring against their very image and nature itself. Because they feel God rejects them spiritually, and nature rejects them naturally, they have no validation. So, they need people to validate them at all times, with no rejection at all. Any type of rejection, whether its verbal, physical, mental, or emotional points to the fact that they feel bad about their present state and desire to change but feel they cannot.

Pastor Lewis points out that the solution isn’t tolerance, welcoming, acceptance, inclusion and all the other double entendre buzz phrases we keep hearing. The solution is to preach holiness, repentance and deliverance. First, political homosexuals demanded special rights in the legal world. Now, the religious homosexuals are demanding special rights in the church. No one should be exempt from repenting of their own sins. When the church drops that requirement for anyone, it will have become good for nothing but to be cast out and trampled under the foot on men.

Although Lewis’ blog post acknowledges that all ethnicities are battling with accusations of homophobia and homosexuality, its effects on the black community are particularly devastating.

Actor rips anti-homosexuality pages out of the bible

ianmckellen_A friend on facebook sent this link to me. The British actor apparently thinks he is doing something significant by ripping out a page in the bible which explicity condemns the homosexual activity he is enslaved to.  It shows how the real problem is not us, but a hatred of God’s word. A story right out of Romans 1. It also makes me wonder what would happen if McKellan would rip pages out of the Koran or desecrate the Torah. And would he publicly brag about that.

In a Q and A with Details magazine, the openly gay ‘Lord of the Rings’ [and X-Men] star admits to a habit of tearing out the Bible passage that condemns homosexuality — Leviticus 18:22 — every time he finds one in his hotel room. The passage: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

“I’m not proudly defacing the book,” he asserts, “but it’s a choice between removing that page and throwing away the whole Bible.”

McKellen says his actions have inspired others to do the same. “I got delivered a package of 40 of those pages that had been torn out by a married couple I know. They put them on a bit of string so that I could hang it up in the bathroom.”

Earlier this year a gay church in Scotland tried a similar trick which backfired on them.

I assume this is just the beginning of McKellen’s dead-end obsession,  but he may be ripping for the rest of his life. Even if he does, this foolish man will never change the Word of the Lord.  If he happens to read this, know there’s much more in the Bible than Leviticus 18:22. We’ll start with the Old Testament.

Genesis 1:27— God did not “create” as an original purpose or intent same gender sexual relationships. The concept simply doesn’t exist as a work of the Creator but later surfaces as a result of man’s ever expanding sin.

Genesis 6:19 —God instructs Noah to preserve only male/female pairings of animals to propagate each species. God’s intent is proof that the dead, unfruitful nature of homosexuality is opposite the living, fruitful and creative nature of God reflected even in nature.

Genesis 9:20-24 — The Bible’s first recorded instance of homosexual activity/desire produces not blessing, but rather a generational curse.

Genesis 19:4-13 —The story of Sodom’s sins of greed, inhospitality,  hatred and sexual perversion (as corroborated in Ezekiel 16:49). The main point is that pride in one’s sins will draw God’s wrath.

Leviticus 5:3 —Situational moral sins including homosexuality. The word “uncleanness” is translated from the Hebrew tame. Because sexual contact between males was defiling, God instructed the priests and Levites to treat it as signal marker of unholy conduct.

Leviticus 18:22;24-30—This is a second, more distinct command issued by God prohibiting male/male sexual relations.   Leviticus 18:22 is a sweeping condemnation of all homosexual activity whether forced or consensual; emotive or nonsexual; contemporary or ancient.

Leviticus 20:13 —This is the 3rd warning to homosexuals of the consequences of their actions. God graciously allows opportunity for repentance, but when it is rejected, he imposes harsh judgment. The word “abomination.” is derived from the Hebrew toevah, which denotes a clash of basic dispositions between the righteous and unrighteous.  Thus, homosexuality was seen as destructive to both the family structure and society.

Duet 22:5 — Prohibited cross gender dressing (transvestism, transgenderism et al) among the sexes. These were indigenous  practices of the idol worshipping Canaanites.

Deut 23:17 —Sovereign God commanded that there be no prostitution or homosexual conduct (religious sodomites from the Hebrew Qadesh) among the people.  The qadesh are forerunners of the contemporary gay christian movement.

Judges 2:11-13 —The “religion” of the Canaanites (descendants of Ham) was as corrupt and vile as could be. On a regular basis it involved child murders (sacrifice), self -mutilation, ritual prostitution and homosexuality. All were practices  God called ”evil.”

Judges 19:22-24 —This passage is almost identical to the Genesis 19 story, although it involves a completely different group of people. Interesting footnote: the people of Gibeah were relatives of the Sodomites.

1Kings 14:22-24—This passage highlights the rise of “tolerance” and evil it brings when sin is promoted through government. Governments should never sanction immorality because it contains a destructive element  affecting all people, both direct and indirectly. Rehoboam, the king, was strongly influenced by the tolerance policies of his mother, Namah (verse 21) of the Ammonites, also relatives of the Sodomites.

1Kings 15:11-13 — In this passage, the scribe singles out the sin of homosexuality for condemnation. Out of 13 other hideous Canaanite-adopted practices, the practice of sodomy-influenced religion in Israel was viewed as a specific threat to the security, health and spiritual integrity of God’s people. Asa, unlike Rehoboam before him, removed his own mother and her “tolerance” policies. Tolerance is dangerous when it is not based on biblical love.

1Kings 22:43;46 — Jehosaphat, Isreal’s head of state did what was “right” in the eyes of the Lord and removed religious sodomites (qadesh)  from influential positions within the country. This was a civil decision based on God’s commandments. Secular leaders can honor God and cause his blessings to come upon the land by restricting laws and policies which damage the well being of the nation at large.

2Kings 23:4-7— Josiah, another King of Isreal institutes reforms which specifically call for the removal of homosexuals who were influential in leading Isreal astray. His actions were part of a “covenant” with God.

Ezekiel 16:49— God didn’t destroy Sodom solely because of  of homosexuality.  Although it is evident it was a determining factor, Sodom’s sin of pride exacerbated their offensiveness to God.

Daniel 11:37— A reference to the sexual or misoginistic nature of the antichrist as envisioned by Daniel. The word “desire” is from Hebrew chamad, which denotes lust and desire associated with male/female sexuality.

Obama blesses Sodom

The Teleprompter-in-Chief (the man in diapers running the country) has pronounced the blessing of God upon Sodom and its vile practices.

This is nauseating, but don’t be surprised.

Two bloggers cover it better than we could:

LaShawn Barber’s Corner “Obama says God bless Sodom”

“Christian” Barack Obama believes the Christian worldview is inferior to the worldview he espoused in his recent Human Rights Campaign speech. The whole thing smells really bad…”

Dunamis Word Blog “Hate Crimes” Legislation, Presidential Approval Of The Gay Agenda

“In one of the most shocking parts of the President’s speech he single handedly and in one sentence exalted gay and lesbian relationships to “admirability”. Not only are the immoral relationships of homosexual unions out of the closet, they have taken center stage and are now touted as being something worth aspiring to.”

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Isaiah 5:20

Holy gay days at TBN?

Gays are taking their popular disarming the church tactic to TBN’s Holyland Experience theme park.

From Charisma Magazine:

Members of the gay and lesbian community plan to visit the Holy Land Experience in Orlando, Fla., Tuesday with hopes of bringing “a message of equality.”

The Bible-based theme park owned by the Trinity Broadcast Network (TBN) is legally required to drop its $35 admission fee one day a year in order to receive certain property tax breaks. This year the park decided to host its free day just two days before the kick-off of Orlando’s Come Out With Pride week.

Kirk Hartlage, an Orlando-based DJ, is encouraging pride week supporters to visit the park on Tuesday wearing red. “By no means should we seek to disrupt the park’s daily activities; instead we should hope that our message of equality will be accepted in a place where tolerance and acceptance of all is said to be preached,” Hartlage said in a memo, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Colby May, communications counsel for the Holy Land Experience, told Charisma the park would operate as usual on Tuesday. “The Holy Land Experience is opened to everyone and is designed to present all visitors with a glimpse into the events of the Bible during the time of Christ Jesus,” he said.

May said the date for the free day was randomly chosen. The park will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Update: Turnout for the free day caused traffic jams, and the park reached maximum capacity a half hour after the doors opened. TBN spokesman John Casoria said the park gave out 5,000 vouchers for those who couldn’t make it in to come back within 30 days. Last year’s free day drew roughly 900.

Casoria said he noticed only a few dozen people wearing red shirts, signifying their support for the gay pride week.

“We were welcoming them to come believing that it would be a very unique ministry experience for the park, for everyone,” Casoria said. “The more people we get into the park and have a great experience here at the park, we know they’ll come back and bring their friends and family. We see this as a very good thing.”

Couple of points TBN (and the general Christian church) should be aware of:

1. This is about setting precedent. They will be back with more and more until red shirts will outnumber others. But because you have accepted their money (which is what you really want anyway) you will rationalize their wicked agenda.

2. The Holy Land Experience is just another “Christian” entertainment/money making venture. It might as well be on the Las Vegas strip with slot machines inside. Of course, with all the charlatans on TBN’s nightly network, this just helps to fund more blasphemy of the Lord’s word.

3. So the park is open to everyone, right? I wonder what TBN would do if a group of brown-shirted neo-nazis showed up to drum up support for white pride?

Gays used as mental health cash cows

cowLifesite News published an revealing article which shows why mental health groups like the American Psychological Association is so hell bent on fighting sexual reorientation. It isn’t because it cant happen, its dangerous or no one is seeking it, its just the simple fact that homosexuals are a dependable cash cow for the industry. The more gays that run into their offices, the more money they make.

A study led by Susan Cochran and her team of researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles, published in the open access journal BMC Psychiatry, reports that homosexuals seek treatment for mental health issues or substance abuse at a rate over two times higher than heterosexuals.

The study of 2074 people interviewed in the California Health Interview Survey found that 48.5% of homosexual and bisexual individuals reported receiving psychiatric or drug abuse treatment in the past year as compared to 22.5% of heterosexuals.

When the research results were broken down by gender, the report states that lesbians and bisexual women received the most medical treatment and heterosexual men received the least.

The business of sin depends heavily on certain industries keeping up the charade that its dangerous to change one’s so-called sexual orientation. Their solution: bring your credit card and come see them. The mental health industry has led the way in perpetuating this lie so that homosexuals continue to run to them for gay affirmative counseling. That translates to big bucks and fat wallets. In turn, homosexuals look to the mental health industry as a god who protects and affirms them.

Susan Cochran, the lead researcher from the University of California said, “The pervasive and historically rooted societal pathologizing of homosexuality may contribute to this propensity for treatment by construing homosexuality and issues associated with it as mental health problems.”

In other words, Cochran believes this to be a matter of correcting cause and effect. She may have done the study to prove one theory, but unwittingly proved that God’s word does not lie.

Like her, other critics of this evidence attribute it all to homophobia and discrimination. They believe that if the world would just accept homosexuality as normal, then the myriad of mental, social, relational, sexual, medical and spiritual problems of homosexuals would fade away like a mist in the sunlight.

But its not so. Sin is encoded by God with death and no amount of affirmation can change its destructive effects…and eventual consequences (Gen 2:15-17).

Some gays tell the truth about homosexuality.

A documentary film  [The Trouble with gay men] produced by British homosexual journalist Simon Fanshawe late last year stated that the “gay” lifestyle is a “sewer” of casual degrading sex, drug abuse and misery. In the film Fanshawe castigated what he views as a prevalent gay subculture that is focused on vanity, puerile superficiality, and transient pleasure, at the expense of lasting values and meaningful relationships.

That coincides with what the bible says. And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. Romans 1:27

Not to mention that I and other former homosexuals are eyewitnesses to the degradation sexual bondage offers. That’s why we tell the truth to save others from this “lifestyle” that leads to death.

In fact, sin pays its employees with death. The wages of sin is death… Romans 6:23. Would you want a job where the boss tells you during the interview that your first paycheck would be death? Sin and disobedience breed death. Its just that simple. The only hope of escaping it is to repent and fully believe that Jesus Christ gave his life in exchange for your freedom.

The business of sin operates about the same in the church or the religious industry I should say. Some pastors  protect and cover for their homosexual members because it pays off big time for them. Its no different from the white slavemasters who got rich off blacks that picked their cotton and tended their children. They would never tell their slaves they could be free! Likewise, these “pastors” won’t preach deliverance and freedom because having a captive slave population able to play, sing, dance and entertain at their churches and conferences is a cash bonanza to them. Preaching the pure gospel would stop the cash flow and they know it.  Many sit for years and years in churches never hearing anything other than when they die they go to hell. Others never hear that there are others like them who have been delivered and are living free from sexual slavery.

Why? Because the love of money is the root of all evil.

The homosexual comunity (political and religious) are getting no favors from the APA and the false church. This is slow execution, but not before they get all the cash.
