From ABC the report on an attempt to cure gayness by exorcising the homosexual demon responsible for the problem.
While it’s far from clear to me that this is actionable legally, and I know I shouldn’t laugh because this kind of idiocy causes real pain to those living through it, I couldn’t help myself. The notion that being gay is caused by being possessed by a homosexual demon, and that this demon is powerful enough to make its host desire sexual contact with those he would otherwise be utterly indifferent to, sexually speaking… and yet this powerful demon will depart because he’s told to do so is… well… pretty funny to me.
Not funny to the kid, of course, and my heart goes out to him. But… c’mon. “Come on you homosexual demon!” Yeah! That’ll do it!
Ooh, I know this story! Jesus addresses the demons who reply, “They call me Steve, for we are fabulous.” Then Jesus casts out the demons, they enter a passing herd of swine, and then immediately rush into a nearby warehouse to have a huge foam party.
Elsewhere in the news, it’s hard finding people to perform exorcisms of “medieval superstition” demons.
Maybe we can get Bobby Jindal to do it.
BTW, what are the charges against the church? Unlawful casting out? Forcible exorcising? Removing the demon of a minor? The kid asked for the exorcism, so it wasn’t against his will. I don’t geddit.
Well, everytime I’ve heard this (namely from my mother) I’ve enquired why it’s so hard to see this demon in people earlier on in life so as to shoo him along. I mean, c’mon, it’s a gay demon. Surely it would be obvious from the fantastic hair and impeccable outfits. It’s no run of the mill demon; a manicured, pretty demon would surely stand out. It most assuredly would be exorcising (sorry) itself at the local gym anyway.
You were taught not to confuse
the pink palace and iron rods
blown a few steel reeds
Come on you raper,
you sower of queer seeds,
Come on your fabulous
bhutsecks gay partners
and Come on you homosexual demon!
It doesn’t appear on the video, but I’m sure they knew it was a homosexual demon because they commanded it to name itself. Demons are required to answer truthfully when asked to name themselves, provided you demand it in the name of Jesus. I was taught this by my pastor when I was about 14. Really.
