So I nearly lost my
shit cool when I found out about this. The cray-cray’s over at Exodus International, that “ex-gay” organization, had this to say on their website “Exodus International is the world’s largest ministry to individuals and families impacted by homosexuality. With over 35 years of ministry experience, Exodus is committed to encouraging, educating and equipping the Body of Christ to address the issue of homosexuality with grace and truth.” Also saying this about their new app “Receiving a 4+ rating from Apple (applications in this category contain no objectionable material), this application is designed to be a useful resource for men, women, parents, students, and ministry leaders.”
OK, WHAT the crazy town is going on at Apply that they can’t see the truth behind this hateful app!? Because I didn’t want to judge fully before I knew all the facts, I myself downloaded the app and just as quickly deleted that sucker. All I saw on it was hateful word after hateful word covered up by some lame attempts at pretending that “hate” isn’t what they’re saying. Like this quote off the website that made me shake my head, “Any way you look at it, homosexuality is simply part of human experience. It just happens. What you need to realize is that the human experience is in conflict with the way God created us. Exodus is an organization that believes that conflict is resolved in Jesus Christ, and we’re here to support those who are following him.” Excuse me? Did that just say pretty plain and simple that homosexuality is a choice? The only choice I personally see in being LGBT is whether or not to be true to yourself and live openly and happy or pretend that you’re not who you are and live the rest of your life hating yourself.
Wikipedia had this to say about Homosexual behavior in animals: “1999 review by researcher Bruce Bagemihl shows that homosexual behavior has been observed in close to 1,500 species, ranging from primates to gut worms, and is well documented for 500 of them…Current research indicates that various forms of same-sex sexual behavior are found throughout the animal kingdom. A new review made in 2009 of existing research showed that same-sex behavior is a nearly universal phenomenon in the animal kingdom, common across species.” So if the animals are doing it and are pretty happy about life, why is it so hard for humans to acknowledge that it’s natural and we don’t need to “fix” anything within us.
Currently there is a petition on Change.org to get Apply to remove this app. It’s safe to say I’ve already signed it. Here is the link for you: Remove “ex-gay” app Petition.
I really would like to know other peoples opinions on this subject because it boggles my mind. I leave you with this YouTube from “Truth Wins Out” which has KC and Larry that met at Love in Action while trying to “pray away the gay”. The two men fell in love and are now legally married.
