''Loose your hold, in the name of Jesus, you homosexual sprit-tah! We call you out right now. You have no power! … Come on homosexual demon! We want a clean spirit! Get out of the way!''
These were the words coming out of church leaders mouths at the Manifested Glory Ministries in Bridgeport, Connecticut
I watched this video last week and thought it was outright crazy for anyone to believe that a person's homosexuality could possibly be reversed in such an absurd manner. It's even crazier now that it's getting quite a bit of media attention.
According to Fox 4, Gay rights advocates are outraged by the church's behavior.
Gay youth advocate Robin McHaelen (mih-KAY'-lehn) says the video appears to show abuse. She says she plans to report it to the Connecticut Department of Children and Families. The boy confirms he is 16 but otherwise has declined to comment.
The Rev. Patricia McKinney of Manifested Glory Ministries in Bridgeport says he is 18 and came to the church on his own seeking help. She denies the church is prejudiced and says it took care of the youth.
