“Ex-gay” leader DL Foster has written a profoundly offensive essay declaring that gay people are in slavery and he’s just like Harriet Tubman, leading them to freedom. Oh, and gay rights advocates are just like the slaveowners. And the KKK. What, no Nazis?
Thus, I’ll be publishing a series of articles on the parallels of slavery our forefathers faced from white slaveowners and their supporters in politics. They hated escaped slaves and did everything they could to stop them. I’ll discuss how anti-EXhomosexual gay activists have become the new oppressors, driven by their hatred of former homosexuals. I’ll highlight brave abolitionists who risked much to help freed slaves and how pastors can help freed homosexuals stay free by creating safety networks. Finally, I will talk about how EXGLBT can work together to expand the promise of freedom for all.
“I freed a thousand slaves and I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.” —Harriet Tubman
The parallel of Harriet Tubman’s statement hit me really hard. Like the unflinching Mrs. Tubman, Ive led many homosexuals out of that slavery into the freedom of holiness. But it comes with the sobering realization that many more will never be free simply because they refuse to acknowledge the bondage of their sin.
I would argue that Foster is the one in bondage here, hostage to this false and absurd idea of “sin.” He is trapped inside the myth that there is something wrong with being gay because his non-existent God says there is.
And they are exactly that. Just ask the thousands and thousands of people subjected to gay reversion “therapy” and taught to loathe themselves because they can’t magically change who they are no matter how hard they pray.
The same prayer and faith in the promise of freedom given by God that brought Harriet Tubman and other EXslaves out of physical bondage, brought EXhomosexuals out of spiritual bondage. But now, our prayers of freedom are being widely mocked by the bigoted oppressors as “praying away the gay”. Our efforts to help other homosexuals gain their freedom are being branded “fraudulent and dangerous”.
Remember, the nonexistence of EXhomosexuals is incontrovertible dogma in gay orthodoxy. Exgays can’t exist because if they do, then it destroys their other parallel lie that all homosexuals are born gay and cannot change. Perhaps this premature shock and awe attempt is because they sense a serious threat to their foundational mistruths. And of course you can couch your fear in shallow comedic bullying:
“In case, you’ve never heard of VoV [Voice of the Voiceless], it’s basically an anti-ex-gay defamation group, or, in other words, a group of self-haters who feel picked on.”
That’s exactly the way the Klan reacted when African Americans showed up to vote or to march for their right to be recognized as full US citizens. If this doesn’t work, maybe the gay activists will resort to dogs, water hoses and bombs. Another favorite tactic of racists were to employ vicious written caricatures of their black victims. Likewise, gay activists use grotestque sexual caricatures against Exhomosexuals (and their supporters).
Seriously. This is being said by a guy who is speaking at an “ex-gay pride” event sponsored by the Family Research Council, which every day portrays gay people as child-molesting, demon-possessed moral monsters out to destroy marriage and civilization. You can’t make this shit up.
