ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF IGNORANCE AND ABUSE

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- The video shows the 16-year-old boy lying on the floor, his body convulsing, as elders of a Connecticut church cast a "homosexual demon" from his body.
"Rip it from his throat!" a woman yells. "Come on, you homosexual demon! You homosexual spirit, we call you out right now!

Loose your grip, Lucifer!"

The 20-minute video posted on YouTube by Manifested Glory Ministries is being called abuse by gay and youth advocates, who demand an investigation. But a church official denied that the teenager was injured or the church is prejudiced.

"We believe a man should be with a woman and a woman should be with a man," the Rev. Patricia McKinney said. "We have nothing against homosexuals. I just don't agree with their lifestyle."

This is why I recently called for a resolution defining "ex-Gay" spiritual sadism as torture. These fundie church programs are nothing but torture sects; it's time society recognized them as such, and brought legal sanctions to bear on them.

BTW, Jerry, I celebrated my 49th birthday yesterday. Strangely enough, 49 feels just like 48 did: I still carry the burden of second-class citizenship.

You're absolutely right!!! The damage these freaks do is outrageous, and should outrage every single decent person, and every single Christian worthy of the name!

Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You're a second-class citizen when it comes to civil rights, but you are a first-class citizen when it comes to decency, intelligence, and compassion for others!

Best wishes, Jerry.
