Quote# 63586

Bridgeport, Conn. -- The video shows the 16-year-old boy lying on the floor, his body convulsing, as elders of a small 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 are demanding an investigation. But a church official this week denied that the teenager was injured or that 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 told The Associated Press. "We have nothing against homosexuals. I just don't agree with their lifestyle."

McKinney denied the ritual was an exorcism, describing it instead as a casting out of spirits. She said the church took care of the youth, providing him clothes.

"He was dressing like a woman and everything. And he didn't want to be like that," McKinney said.

Lets guess why the boy didn´t want to be like that...
because the people in his church constantly told him that (for a man) dressing in a female attire and desiring men is an abomination and will lead you straight to hell

"We have nothing against homosexuals. I just don't agree with their lifestyle."

Well... wouldn't that count as something you have against homosexuals?

And stop with this "lifestyle" bullshit.

That they deny they're prejudiced is sheer idiocy; they mean to say they believe there is nothing wrong with their particular prejudices.

So a gang of church monkeys traumatized a kid untill he agreed to submit to their sick demands.

Fuck you reverend, fuck you with a rusty chainsaw.

The church has pulled the original video, but too late. Search YouTube for 'Manifested Glory Ministries'.

"We have nothing against Christians. I just don't agree with their lifestyle."

...or how about:

"We have nothing against African Americans. I just don't care for their skin pigment."

Still not prejudiced?

Exorcism would be getting the evil spirits out of someone. And my guess is the boy would not have done it if he wasn't coerced into it

"Bridgeport, Conn. -- The video shows the 16-year-old boy lying on the floor, his body convulsing, as elders of a small Connecticut church cast a "homosexual demon" from his body."

This is fucking stupid. Seriously, demons? It's the 21st century. Wake the fuck up!

""We believe a man should be with a woman and a woman should be with a man," the Rev. Patricia McKinney told The Associated Press."

And you believe that, why? Oh, that's right. Your Bronze Age Guide to Bigotry told you that's how it's supposed to be.

""We have nothing against homosexuals. I just don't agree with their lifestyle.""

Fine. I don't agree with your "lifestyle". I demand you stop immediately.

"McKinney denied the ritual was an exorcism, describing it instead as a casting out of spirits."

Oh, well then. That's perfectly acceptable.

"She said the church took care of the youth, providing him clothes."

You're all Saints you are.

""He was dressing like a woman and everything. And he didn't want to be like that," McKinney said."

Did anyone bother to ask him first?

Here we see exactly why Europe stagnated for nearly 500 years during the Early Middle Ages: credulous, ignorant, fearful, hateful fools lacking a single ounce of intellectual honesty or curiosity.

Why light a candle when you can grovel on your knees in the dark. I pity you, I truly do.

Well, DRTT, but it sounds like the kid might not have had any other places to go. (Took care of him, provided clothing - could be a runaway.) If it was truly this kid's choice, and 16 is where in most states we start giving adult responsibilities (driving, being tried as an adult) so one could argue it could have been his choice and therefor should be protected as a choice.

BUT-

On the other hand, could just be a group of nutters brainwashing a kid. Hard to say, but with the age you'd have to talk to the 16 year old more, send him through a battery of psych tests first, IMHO, before you file charges or something if we are really allowing religious freedom here.

Um...what the hell did she think an exorcism was?

So you cast out spirits but don't think it's an exorcism, you have nothing against homosexuality but you consider it demonic possession, and you think the kid 'chose' to be released from his 'demons', most likely after having been forcefed your views on the matter.

Right. Sickening...

WITCH DOCTOR AND ME

I'm dancing
Dancing on the floor
I'm movin'
Moving like a whore.

I'm a homo
The devil's in my head
Call a doctor
Call a witch doctor instead.

The devil likes to homosexualize me
Your cock and balls are what I fan-cy
Bring out your fat bitch doctor to cure
The devil's curse of man allure.

Got my clothes on
Witch don't like my attire
Move my hips
Here's a shake for you sire.

Hello sweetie
The devil wants to show
Show me how
to really let it go.

The devil likes to homosexualize me
Your cock and balls are what I fan-cy
Bring out your fat bitch doctor to cure
The devil's curse of male allure.

I'm so manly
In a womanly way.
I'm so gorgeous
That's because I'm gay.

But you tell me
You don't like my style
And you'll help me
because you think it's vile.

The devil likes to homosexualize me
Your cock and balls are what I fan-cy
Bring out your fat bitch doctor to cure
The devil's curse of male allure.

That video was vile. I hope the poor kid is alright. I wouldn't be surprised if he needed therapy, though. I feel as if I do, and I wasn't even there.
