Details Magazine has a good story on gay exorcisms:
Kevin closed his eyes, thinking to himself, “There’s something wrong with me; I need to change.” A part of him believed this prophet could do what no one else had been able to do during previous deliverance attempts‚Äîmake him heterosexual. But the prophet was loud and she looked at him with disgust and contempt as her chants became more and more belligerent. Even now Kevin can’t bring himself to repeat the most hurtful things she said. He soon began to cry. And then, with the prophet still exhorting the demons in him to depart, he blacked out and collapsed. When he regained consciousness, he stood up and returned to his seat. His shame was turning to rage. He searched his mind and thoughts and found he was unchanged‚Äîhe was still attracted to men. In the past it had been family members‚Äîhis mother, his aunt, or his uncle, the church’s pastor‚Äîwho performed deliverance on him. This time it was a stranger, and she had pushed him beyond the breaking point. Never again, he decided, would he allow himself to be treated this way.
It was, by Kevin’s count, at least the 10th time since he was 16 that he’d subjected himself to gay exorcism.
Groups like, Exodus and Homosexuals Anonymous don’t like to talk much about exorcisms. But deliverance and “spiritual warfare” is an important part of what they do. While not all affiliates partake in such savagery, enough do. It is the underbelly of the “ex-gay” industry that Alan Chambers, Randy Thomas, Joseph Nicolosi and Regina Griggs rarely discuss with the mainstream media.
Of course, Exodus will likely deny they are tied to such barbarism. However, the materials they sell are filled with calls to “spiritual warfare”. Why doesn’t Exodus denounce the use of such superstitious and backward tactics? Is it because they are “conservatively correct” and afraid to alienate churches that support them?
