Ex-Gay Activist: God Turned Gay 'Nightmare' Into 'A Fairy Tale Dream Come True'

While this month’s “Ex-Gay Pride” celebrations have been postponed, September has now been declared Ex-Gay Awareness Month because why not. Helping to spread the message, ex-gay activist Stephen Bennett of Stephen Bennett Ministries and Daddy Pants Industries appeared on Saturday’s edition of Understanding the Times with End Times broadcaster Jan Markell. He spent most of the time criticizing Alan Chambers for closing Exodus International and criticizing the effectiveness of sexual orientation conversation therapy.

According to Bennett, same-sex couples are merely “playing house” and don’t have “the real thing.” “God has taken that which for me was a nightmare and literally made a fairy tale dream come true,” he continued.

Markell maintained that America is now at war with God over marriage equality. “When that government proposes evil and the people sanction it, that spells the demise of a country,” Markell said, “we are racing towards tyranny in America and serious judgment as well.”

She concluded that the “road is being paved” for the coming of the Antichrist and a “globalist system.”

Janet Parshall Hosts Self-Described 'Ex-Gay' to Discuss how Homosexuality 'Tragically Develops'

Yesterday on In the Market, Religious Right talk show host Janet Parshall hosted “ex-gay” activist Stephen Bennett to describe his “battle with same-sex attraction – and the power that set him free.” During the program Parshall and Bennett took calls from people with strained relationships with their openly gay sons and daughters, advising one woman not to attend her lesbian daughter’s commitment ceremony, and Bennett told listeners that “complete change is completely possible for those who seek it.”

He claimed that child molestation is the leading factor for how homosexuality “develops,” even saying that “almost every out lesbian that we see in Hollywood has declared either in a book or in an interview that they were molested early on in their childhood.” Bennett went on to claim that along with abuse, adoption is responsible for homosexuality. Of course, what was not mentioned in the program was that the country’s chief medical and psychiatric organizations all oppose “ex-gay” therapy as dangerous and ineffective.

I believe that homosexuality is completely developmental, it tragically develops early on in most cases in one’s childhood due to so many different things, there is not a cookie cutter answer or reason why. Many times it could have to do with a parent, the same-sex parent, it could involve molestation, almost every out lesbian that we see in Hollywood has declared either in a book or in an interview that they were molested early on in their childhood. That’s not everyone’s story but if we really look and see that there are root causes and root issues underlying a person’s homosexuality, and I always say that homosexuality, anyone’s homosexuality, is an outward expression of an inward conflict. I firmly believe based upon the word of God that complete change, not partial change, complete change is completely possible for those who seek it.



There’s many, many deep issues, again mentioning the idea of adoption as well as some abuse that was there before. A lot of statistics that are out show that there’s a high number of men and women involved in homosexuality and they share with the adoption issue and, again, molestation. Of course, doesn’t mean that anyone who was adopted is going to be gay.
