Colorado State Representative and Assemblies of God pastor Ken Summers, who oversees the Teen Challenge addiction centers, has some unusual methods to “cure” people of homosexuality. He envisions homosexuality as a demonic possession requiring an exorcism to “get the gay out.”
An isolated incident? Think again …
Minnesota congress woman Michele Bachmann’s donated over $9,000 to a Teen Challenge in Minnesota. The Minnesota Teen Challenge has received over $10 million in government funding, and there’s been a lot of demon casting-out going on at that Teen Challenge.
A Connecticut church, Manifested Glory Ministries in Bridgeport, posted a video of an exorcism of a teen’s “homosexual demons” on YouTube. It has since been taken down.
What a great idea. Blame everything on “demons” so you don’t have to take any personal responsibility. It’s not your fault.
These people are insane. If there’s a better argument in favor of church/state separation, I haven’t seen it.
I know, it’s better to light one candle than curse the darkness, but I’m all out of candles.
