Ex-gay guru, Stephen Bennett is back in the news telling people how his 11 years being gay makes him an expert on homosexuality. I say that is rubbish. His 11 years of being gay make him an expert on Stephen not gays. He tells the Christian Post:
The evangelical leader also acknowledged many persons struggling with homosexuality who do not know the origin of “this temptation” and “deny that they consciously chose it.”
Sorry Stephen, but nobody made this choice to be gay. The idea of that is crazy, nonscientific and absolute rubbish. The man living in complete denial of science would be Stephen.
He also says in the article:
“The fact is homosexuality – having no scientific, biological basis whatsoever – is already a changeable trait without a patch or injection, one that I have personally received 14 years ago: Jesus Christ,” said Stephen Bennett, founder of the pro-family Stephen Bennett Ministries, in a released statement.
Bennett also goes on with the whole “Sexually based lifestyle”. For Christ sake, does he really think our lives are based on sex? Does he really believe that relationships that are based on sex could last for more than 20 minutes? Millions of gay and lesbian relationships last for 20 plus years. Trust me that would be impossible if it was based on sex.
Bennett, a former gay man for 11 years, agreed with Mohler. “No matter the future’s findings or lack thereof, homosexuality is, was and always will be ’sin’ in God’s eyes – an immoral, sexually behavior based lifestyle that should and can be changed,” he stated.
This man is giving others extremely false information but along with that he is touting all sorts of myths with his “I am changed” rubbish. Lots of gay and lesbian people were in heterosexual marriages before coming to terms with their sexuality. The fact that Mr. Bennett is married doesn’t mean he is no longer attracted to men, it just means he is managing well as a heterosexual. I still hold the theory that he is hurting more people than he helps.
Don’t forget about the petition for Stephen:
Dear Stephen and Irene Bennett of “Straight Talk Radio” and “SB Ministries”:
We, the undersigned, respecting your first amendment right to free speech, ask you to stop your violent message against gays, lesbians and their families. Many people are hurt and dehumanized when you call the lives of gays and lesbians destructive, call their marriages fake, and refer to gay unions as the putrid stench in god’s nostrils. While your message may be well intentioned, it is misguided and misinformed.
The Indian philosopher, Mahatma Gandhi internationally esteemed for his doctrine of nonviolent protest once said:
“I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.”
Dehumanizing speech is violence. We ask that your stop your violence against gays, lesbians, their friends and families by considering the following:
- It is our belief that your campaign to change gays and lesbians into heterosexuals uses fear tactics, lies, misrepresented facts and flawed research. It is the belief of the undersigned that you are hurting more people than you help.
- Stop claiming since you lived as a gay man for 11 years, you have been there, thus claiming you can speak for all gays and lesbians. Your experience as a gay man was filled with poor choices and self-loathing. It is not a reflection of all gays and lesbians or their personal experiences.
- Stop generalizing gays and lesbians as child predators, pedophiles, bad parents, diseased or destructive. No mainstream medical or psychological association supports your claims. No credible, peer-reviewed research exists to back up your claim and much is available to refute it.
- Stop claiming homosexuality is curable disorder. There is no mainstream medical or psychological organization which concurs with the belief that homosexuality is a disorder and all agree that any attempt to change one’s sexual orientation is dangerous.
- Stop claiming that gays and lesbians have a “lifestyle”. Gays and lesbians have many different lifestyles and come from all walks of life. There is no one gay lifestyle and grouping us all together into your mold of destruction is inaccurate as well as insulting.
- Stop engaging in deception by omission. Your message only focuses on the poor choices of some gays and lesbians while ignoring all the well adjusted, healthy people successfully living their lives who happen to be gay or lesbian. If one were to do this with heterosexuals, the same violent message you spread about gays would become true of them.
