Honestly, I don't know what to do anymore. How do you combat that kind of thinking? Anything I say to that kind of mindset will simply be ignored, and they'll go on spreading it. It's an uphill battle all the way, and I've no intention of giving up, but sometimes it can be really disparaging, and yes, I can see this becoming a national thing with many more churches posting videos, and we've got ourselves a new fear tactic to fight.

Re: Gay Exorcism!?!?!

If he is 18, he has the right to do what he wants in regards to an Exorcism. It seems these activists only want to throw a fit when it involves gayness, yet they are quiet about other forms of exorcism.

I'm not quiet about it. I think it's barbaric. People have died from exorcisms, and all this does is push the gay community further from the church. Would you feel welcome in a church like that if you were gay? I wouldn't.

I do agree that Exorcisms are an ancient practice, that while relevant in Jesus's time, really aren't relevant anymore. We have more tools now, than early Christians did, to resist the devil and his demons. For one, to the topic of this young boy, if he were to put his faith in Christ, he would receive the peace he is looking for. I think he is looking in the wrong place by choosing Exorcism.

I also think the activists are out of line and going a bit far here since the boy consciously and purposeful, out of his own rights and free will, opted to have this Exorcism done to him. It is obvious they spoke up only because it deals with homosexuality.

If he is gay, religion has nothing to do with this. He was born that way.

Re: Gay Exorcism!?!?!

My major problem with religion is that if people truly believe that God created everything, why is it so hard to believe that God also created homosexuals?

Because the Devil created homosexuals, obviously.

Because God cannot sin. However, sin can be born out of worldly or mans sin. Thus people can be born with a predilection of feeling homosexual. However, it is still your choice to live that life style, no matter how you might feel. The choice is yours to give into those feelings, or choose not to.

I think people sell themselves short when they say they don't have a choice. I might feel very strongly about murdering people, but I have a choice whether I do or not. I might feel like having sex with minors, but I have a choice whether I do or not. I might feel like having sex with the same sex, but I have a choice whether I do or not. I might feel like driving a Yugo, but I have a choice whether I do or not. I might feel like going to France, but I have a choice whether I do or not.

That is my opinion and what I believe anyway.
