I was disturbed when I came across these videos yesterday. Reminds me of when I underwent two exorcisms to rid me of the "demon of homosexuality." I wish I could say that this stuff is exaggerated... but my experience was similarly out of control. Lots of pastors screaming, praying, singing, feverishly shouting "in the name of Jesus". It was utter chaos. I went into a panic attack.
Geez. This really takes me back. It's so sad that people are so afraid of being gay that they are willing to submit themselves to abuse like this. It's so sad that others are so afraid of gay people that they are willing to perpetrate this insanity on others. I wish I could transport back ten years and tell myself about the wonderful, fulfilling, heartwarming relationship I have now with my husband.
Makes me think about the poor young man at the center of these videos. I wonder how he's doing now. I hope he's okay.
