Video ( 3 minutes)
In this video, a pastor is asking gay teens to come forward to be given freedom from the devil.
A young girl at the end is dramatically announcing that the truth of god will release these kids from the enemy.
The kids that do go up are kneeling, swaying, crying, etc.
Personally, I don't see anything psychologically healthy about this, at all. At one point it is suggested that the enemy is the one who puts the thoughts in the heads of gay people. It's referred to as perversion.
Do you agree with the content of the video? Please explain your answer.
Do you think that this type of preaching can lead to teen suicide? If so, what do you feel would be a solution to ending this type of meme?
As a believer, do you have thoughts that you don't take responsibility for? That you blame on "the enemy"?

Real or not, staged or "genuine", it was sick. The sort of mind that would conceive of such a repulsive display and promote a video like that is sick and disgusting. What's shameful isn't "girls who are attracted to girls" or "boys who are attracted to boys", it's the kind of people who, in the name of Christianity, feel that they can judge others and suggest that they are under the influence of perverted evil. The ones who made that video are perverted. The whole thing angered me so much that I'm having a hard time articulating. It makes me want to step into that video and bitch-slap everyone who participated in its creation. Ugh.
