Are you gay, homosexual,lesbian, bisexual, transexual etc...? Well, I want to welcome you to my personal website from my personal experiences and friendship with people that have a similar background. I honestly never been homosexual, but I have had thoughts about it. They were basically "stuff" that runs in your mind coming out of nowhere. As a Christian (see personal testimony), I want to show my love towards homosexuals through this website. Please let me know how I could be a resource to you through prayer, needs, or just someone to talk with.

Of all my homosexual friends, I've found a common trend. It happened in the past when they were young and was sexually abused by someone they knew. It's very sad that this had to happen. Feel free to share me your stories or what you think about this?

Below is a case study sent to me by e-mail from a christian brother in the Twin Cities with my response:

Case Study 1:

Your longtime friend, Darnell, comes to you one day and wants to talk. He is not a Christian, and has shown little interest in matters of faith. Recently, however, he has begun to ask searching questions about the meaning of his life. He respects your faith, and is willing to listen to you.

�I just heard some preacher on the radio,� he says, �going on about homosexuality. What is it with Christians and homosexuality? Doesn�t the Bible prohibit all sorts of things that we do everyday? I seem to remember that the Bible says you can�t wear clothes made out of two kinds of fabric, or eat shellfish or pork. And doesn�t the Bible also say women can�t wear gold or pearls? Why is homosexuality such a big deal then? You know I�m not a homosexual, but I don�t see why it has to be such a big issue. What�s the difference between that and the other things that are prohibited?�

What would you say to Darnell?

Response #1:
The Bible is more than what is or what isn't prohibited. The Old Testament (before Jesus' time) was a book of laws-on what you can or you can't do. That is why Jesus came, to take place of the law. Below is an argument between Paul and Peter over the Jewish custom/law on "circumsision" that is similar to the list of "prohibition" mentioned in the Old Testament:

11When Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong. 12Before certain men came from James, he used to eat with the Gentiles. But when they arrived, he began to draw back and separate himself from the Gentiles because he was afraid of those who belonged to the circumcision group. 13The other Jews joined him in his hypocrisy, so that by their hypocrisy even Barnabas was led astray. 14When I saw that they were not acting in line with the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter in front of them all, "You are a Jew, yet you live like a Gentile and not like a Jew. How is it, then, that you force Gentiles to follow Jewish customs? 15"We who are Jews by birth and not 'Gentile sinners' 16know that a man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no one will be justified. 17"If, while we seek to be justified in Christ, it becomes evident that we ourselves are sinners, does that mean that Christ promotes sin? Absolutely not! 18If I rebuild what I destroyed, I prove that I am a lawbreaker. 19For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God. 20I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!"-Galatians 2

As mentioned in verse 14 and 17, we are not entitled to obey what the law says. However, our faith and relationship (see personal relationship) in Jesus Christ is what it all brings down to. From our faith in Him, the "meaning of life" is to totally trust and depend in Him glorifying-worshipping Jesus with all our heart (Romans 12). Our actions is the fruit of all this, and what we do (lifestyle) is the result of all this (see purpose in life).

The Bible (see bible testimony) was written more than as a law, but a "love letter" from our Heavenly Father. He is a "justified" and "loving" God, who just wants to best for us-like how a real father treats his son or children.

The difference between "homosexuality" and the others the Bible prohibits can be answered through Scriptures-what God says is more than what man, religion, or even any particular church (man can't judge, which many Christians tend to do) says. Ask Him yourself (Matthew 7:7)! Below are some Scripture verses that you search for "key words-homosexuality" (other issues in life):

  • What does the Bible say about homosexuality? Is homosexuality a sin?,

  • Question: "What does the Bible say about homosexuality? Is homosexuality a sin?"
    " Answer: The Bible consistently tells us that homosexual activity is a sin (Genesis 19:1-13; Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9). Romans 1:26-27 teaches specifically that homosexuality is a result of denying and disobeying God. When people continue in sin and unbelief, God “gives them over” to even more wicked and depraved sin in order to show them the futility and hopelessness of life apart from God. 1 Corinthians 6:9 proclaims that homosexual “offenders” will not inherit the kingdom of God.
    God does not create a person with homosexual desires. The Bible tells us that people become homosexuals because of sin (Romans 1:24-27) and ultimately because of their own choice. A person may be born with a greater susceptibility to homosexuality, just as some people are born with a tendency to violence and other sins. That does not excuse the person’s choosing to sin by giving in to sinful desires. If a person is born with a greater susceptibility to anger/rage, does that make it right for him to give into those desires? Of course not! The same is true with homosexuality.
    However, the Bible does not describe homosexuality as a “greater” sin than any other. All sin is offensive to God. Homosexuality is just one of the many things listed in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 that will keep a person from the kingdom of God. According to the Bible, God’s forgiveness is just as available to a homosexual as it is to an adulterer, idol worshipper, murderer, thief, etc. God also promises the strength for victory over sin, including homosexuality, to all those who will believe in Jesus Christ for their salvation (1 Corinthians 6:11; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Philippians 4:13).

    1. Genesis 19 Sodom and Gomorrah Destroyed
      "..4 Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old-surrounded the house. 5 They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them." .. Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him 7 and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing. 8 Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don't do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof."
      9 "Get out of our way," they replied. And they said, "This fellow came here as an alien, and now he wants to play the judge! We'll treat you worse than them." They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.
      10 But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door. 11 Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.
      12 The two men said to Lot, "Do you have anyone else here—sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, 13 because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the LORD against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it."
      14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were pledged to marry [a] his daughters. He said, "Hurry and get out of this place, because the LORD is about to destroy the city!" But his sons-in-law thought he was joking.
      15 With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, "Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished."
      16 When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the LORD was merciful to them. 17 As soon as they had brought them out, one of them said, "Flee for your lives! Don't look back, and don't stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!"
      18 But Lot said to them, "No, my lords, [b] please! 19 Your [c] servant has found favor in your [d] eyes, and you [e] have shown great kindness to me in sparing my life. But I can't flee to the mountains; this disaster will overtake me, and I'll die. 20 Look, here is a town near enough to run to, and it is small. Let me flee to it—it is very small, isn't it? Then my life will be spared."
      21 He said to him, "Very well, I will grant this request too; I will not overthrow the town you speak of. 22 But flee there quickly, because I cannot do anything until you reach it." (That is why the town was called Zoar. [f] )
      23 By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land. 24 Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the LORD out of the heavens. 25 Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, including all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land. 26 But Lot's wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.
      27 Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the LORD. 28 He looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, toward all the land of the plain, and he saw dense smoke rising from the land, like smoke from a furnace.
      29 So when God destroyed the cities of the plain, he remembered Abraham, and he brought Lot out of the catastrophe that overthrew the cities where Lot had lived."

    2. Romans 1

    3. "God's Wrath Against Mankind
      18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
      21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
      24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
      26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
      28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

    4. 1 Corinthians 6:9

    God loves the "sinner", but he hates the "sin"

    Galatians 5

    "...that's all of us"

    Below are some Scripture verses, but you need the whole context of the Bible instead of taking verse by verse literally. God's greatest commandments is to "love God" and "love neighbor" (sex, gender, race, class, etc...), which if we do just both of these-life issues like homosexuality woldn't be such a big deal.

    Past Stories

    I went to high school with folks that I had a feeling were "gay", but I really never had the chance to interact with them as I was in my own "clique". Then when I went to school at UMM, I started to meet more and more of them. Over my 4 years, I learned how to be "open" and "compassionate" towards them. One time I was with a friend and he told me "out of the blue" that he was "gay". I was at first shocked, but then I started to absorb the reality as I reflected on some past times of hanging out and notice some "clues". I kind of lied that "I knew that". I'm still friends with him and trying to just be the same friend I was before he told me he was gay.

    I have another friend of mine that moved out of state for personal growth with God that was "bisexual". He told me this after a week living with me. I was shocked at first too, but just kept loving him as a friend. He would later leave his bisexual lifestyle as he grew in his loving personal relationship with Jesus. I'm not sure if he completely left, but it's between him and God as I still keep him in my prayers.

    Just recently, I met a lesbian couple, which I've met in the past. However, I'm getting to know them more than the others I've met in the past. I'm just going to "keep loving them" as I was reminded by a Christian brother in mind that left that lifestyle. He is part of Exodus Ministries (see down below), which I was referred to this website after chatting with him during a break at City Hills' Regional Leadership Conference awhile back. I'll probably give an update on this story down the road. Till then, I'm just going to keep growing in my personal relationship with God to shine more of Jesus' light to the people He puts in my path day to day!

    Below are some links to some resources that might help better understand and love homosexuals, like any other human being.

    *see GoodnewsEverybody: Father

    When Your Father Wasn't There by Stephen Strang ( October 2000
    "...Dad was always working to support our family of five children. Unfortunately, his constant worries about money left him short-tempered and critical. He had little time to spend with us, and as I grew older, I began to resent him," wrote one recovering homosexual (The Exodus Update, November 1999).
    "The inner pain started early in my life. At the age of 5, I promised my mother that I would care for her, in light of the abuse we all suffered from my father...But I craved attention from [other boys] to replace what was missing from my father," wrote another [Exodus Update, September 1999].
    Of course, many other factors caused these men to veer into homosexuality; but what if the strong presence of a father had been there? Surely, many of them would have been spared their own bad choices had they received proper direction at critical times.
    Being a father is very important. Fathering my two sons, Cameron and Chandler, is very high on my list of priorities--over everything except my relationships with my God and my wife, Joy. I don't want to make any mistakes in my relationship with them that could create a father wound in their lives. .....
    Finding Healing in Christ
    ...There's no getting around it. God created fathers to be with their children. Children thrive under a father's loving care, just as we thrive as God's children under His loving care. But most of us have to deal with at least some of our fathers' shortcomings....
    The bottom line is this: All of us have been stunted by the limitations placed on us by our dads--simply because none of us had perfect fathers. Some of us may have been stunted more because our fathers were more imperfect than others.
    But none of us are doomed to failure and powerless to rise above the limitations of imperfection in our fathers. We have access to our perfect heavenly Father and His power to succeed. We have the Word of God, which is powerful to the breaking down of strongholds.
    We have a new destiny--because we can be new men in Christ. *

    "ALEXANDRIA, Minn - The death of 18-year-old Jefferson High School student Lance Lundsten caused several to speak out about bullying in Greater Minnesota schools. Nineteen-year-old Caleb Shafer said he was bullied from middle school through high school.
    "I was suicidal," Shafer said. "I was very depressed ... I didn't want to talk to anyone ... I would cry myself to sleep."
    Shafer attended Jefferson High School at the same time Lundsten did. Although Shafer told friends he was gay his junior year, he said he had been picked on for "acting gay" since middle school.
    "They would shove me, make a comment and then go on their way," Shafer said.
    Shafer said bullying began to take an affect on his school work and was the reasoning for leaving school early several times.
    Fitting in at school causes unwanted stress, psychologist and family therapist Howard Peterson of Lakeland Mental Health Center said.
    "It's a competitive social environment," Peterson said. "There's a tremendous pressure to fit in and if you're not like everyone else, you feel the pressure."
    Peterson said students who are bullied need to communicate with adults about bullying.
    "You have to look at school as the kid's work place," Peterson said. "Sometimes kids are afraid that if they talk to their parents, they will talk to the school and that will make things worse. That's not the case."
    Peterson added that schools need to be proactive in preventing bullying before something happens.
    "One thing that schools can do is make it loud and clear that (bullying is) not allowed and that there are consequences," Peterson said. "If a student does become a bully, they need to know they can removed from school."

  • Biber Gets 18 Years In Prison For Raping Boy, Oct 20, 2010 7:20 pm US/Central Reporting Holly Wagner

    A former Twin Cities lawyer and one-time treasurer of the Minnesota State Bar Association was sentenced to 18 years in prison for raping a 15-year-old boy.
    Aaron Biber was sentenced Wednesday afternoon at a Hennepin County Court. The sentence is an upward departure from the standard 12 years in cases like this.
    The prosecution had requested doubling the sentencing guidelines, which would mean 24 years in prison. The defense said Biber only deserves one year.
    Last August, Biber pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal sexual conduct, and has been behind bars ever since. A Hennepin County judge ruled that Biber assaulted the victim with particular cruelty and ordered him taken into custody.
    During testimony on Tuesday, Biber showed no emotion in court as witnesses gave graphic testimony about how he targeted the boy -- his son's best friend -- since the boy was 11 years old.
    On Wednesday, the boy's mother called Biber a "monster." And the victim told the judge: "The biggest tragedy is that I have lost all respect for myself. I truly feel I'm alone in this world. I don't know what a normal relationship is supposed to be like."
    Biber and the boy exchanged more than 1,000 explicit text messages, including a few with photos of their genitals. Until recently, Biber claimed the boy was always the aggressor.
    The victim's parents said, in an impact statement, "I had no idea Aaron Biber was a monster. ... He (Biber) is a relentless, compulsive, heartless predator."
    The parents say they were completely fooled and called Biber a "slick, sociopathic imposter." They argued, "Our son is forever changed."
    The victim's parents said their son who was an A student is now having trouble in school. Has lost a lot of his friends and they're worried he won't graduate.
    Psychologists testified Biber, who was married until his arrest, was tormented because he is secretly gay. He is now divorced.
    Testimony claims Biber used the boy's friendship with his son to get him to sleepover at his Shorewood home, where he allegedly got him drunk and had sex with him.
    Dr. James Alsdurf, a psychologist, said Biber developed a "quick attraction to this boy and decided he had to have him."
    In the midst of the sexual relationship with Biber, the teen tried to kill himself, and as prosecutors pointed out, even after that Biber continued to pursue the boy.
    Nancy Biber, Biber's ex-wife, testified through tears begging the judge to be lenient in his sentencing on behalf of their two teenage sons.
    The victim's mother released this statement following the sentence:
    "Aaron Biber got exactly what he deserved today. He is a sexual predator and a child molester who forever damaged our son. He stole his childhood and shattered his life into a million pieces.
    "We wish to offer our sincere sympathy to his two sons and family as they are victims in this tragedy too.
    "Aaron Biber's path of distruction was wide indeed and two families crushed in this disaster are left to pick up the pieces. However, no one paid a higher price than our son.
    "We pray for healing for all involved and touched by the actions of one twisted, heartless man.
    We thank the Hennepin County Attorney's Office for obtaining justice for our son. We also thank our family and friends for their tireless support throughout this grueling ordeal. "


  • Children need fathers, not "baby-daddies", from

  • Recently I became a father for the second time. My wife and I went from the doctor’s giving us little to no chance of being able to conceive naturally, to having an 18-month old son and a two-month old daughter. Our ability to bear children is truly a testament to God’s faithfulness. The Lord spoke to me during prayer one evening and told me that it was going to happen in his timing. Matter of fact, he gave me specific numbers to go along with his promise. And then as confirmation, he led my pastor to tell my wife that she was going to conceive in 2007. God gave us the word, confirmed it, but still required us to have faith and the patience to wait on His divine timing. Sure enough, we had our first child October 2007.
    Fast forward to the present, I feel like a veteran to this parenting game, yet, I realize I have a lot to learn. Day by day my son learns to say and do something new, leaving us baffled about where he picked up his new skills. Then at times, when I look at him, it’s like looking into a mirror. Not only does the child resemble me, but he has my gestures and mannerisms down to a T. Just turn the TV to the Bulls or Cubs and he will yell and clap instantaneously. This is nothing he was taught, just something he observed from his father. Which leads me to my point... children need fathers, not “baby-daddies” or a child-support check!
    My short stint as a father has reaffirmed what I already knew, but now I see it in practice. The Bible commissions men to be the head of the household. Meaning, we are held responsible for the well-being of the family. It is our job to be the protector, provider, disciplinarian, and the one who makes tough decisions when necessary. All of these things should be done in consultation and consideration of the spouse, but the onus is not on her, God holds the man responsible. Got issues with that statement?
    Children need fathers because they need to see theory in action. Lip service is not enough - the best example is the one you live. Children need fathers because baby-daddies are not there to get up in the middle of the night to rock baby back to sleep. Baby-daddies are not there to put Orajel on sore gums. Baby-daddies are not there to give the toddler a bath while mama is nursing the infant to sleep. Children need fathers because a child-support check cannot teach a child how to throw or catch and how to read or write. Children need fathers because young boys need to see how a woman is supposed to be treated; and young girls need to know they do not have to settle for less. Children need fathers because a woman can do her very best, but she can never teach a young boy how to be a man.
    God designed a mother and father to raise children together to bring about balance and to share the responsibility. It’s time out for part-time fathers and baby-daddies. And if you are functioning in your role as a father, God bless you, but you do not get a gold star. It’s mighty funny how some men want to brag and boast for doing what they are supposed to be doing in the first place – evidence of low societal standards.
    To those men who are no longer with their children’s mother, do not allow this barrier to cause you to abort your God-given responsibility. If both parents have the children’s best interest at heart, the kids will still be able to receive the balance needed from both parents, and that special element that only a father can provide.

  • MN Report: Rising HIV Rates In Gay Youth, Women, Apr 15, 2009 1:36 pm US/Central (

  • "MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) ― The Minnesota AIDS Project took the opportunity to remind Minnesotans of their concerns.
    The Minnesota Department of Health reports that the state's number of HIV infections continues to creep upward after 326 new cases were diagnosed in 2008.
    Of the cases found in 2008, 238 were males and 88 were females and there was a particular spike in infections among males ages 13 to 34.
    The Minnesota AIDS Project took the opportunity to remind Minnesotans of their concerns: that an estimated 2,500 Minnesotans may be unaware they are infected, that women are a fast emerging population for new infections, and that the virus is proliferating rapidly among gay or bisexual men under 25 years of age.
    The report also said that infection rates are higher among men and women of color than whites.
    The organization did note cases of HIV being spread through intravenous drug use were minimized.
    "When compared against national prevalence rates, Minnesota continues to rate better than many other states," said Minnesota AIDS Project's executive director Lorraine Teel. "However, the rising trend in young gay/bisexual men and the high rate of HIV in the African American community needs to be addressed aggressively to prevent rapid increases of HIV in these very much at-risk communities."
    According to the Minnesota Department of Health, 27 percent of the new infections recorded were from women. Ten years ago, only 18 percent were accountable to women.
    "The rise of incidence in women of all races is also extremely troubling and illustrates the ongoing importance of funding education, prevention, and an open discussion to reduce the stigma associated with this disease so all communities can address the issue openly to meet the challenges in our state," said Teel. "We need to be able to discuss sexual transmission and other sensitive topics in a forthright manner to stop this virus."
    The department also noted 42 new cases from men under the age of 25. The Minnesota AIDS Project reported that the statistic clearly indicates a lack of education to young gay or bisexual males about the risks of AIDS.
    The department said Wednesday that 8,819 cases of HIV/AIDS have been reported since it started tracking AIDS in 1982 and HIV in 1985. Nearly 3,000 of those diagnosed have died.
    The Minnesota AIDS Project suggested anyone with questions about HIV contact AIDSLine at 612-373-AIDS in the Twin Cities metro area and 1-800-248-AIDS statewide."

  • Mixed Reaction To Police Sex Sting Of Priest, Nov 6, 2010 10:09 pm US/Central

  • "ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) ―
    A Twin Cities priest is off the job after being cited in a sex sting. Police picked him up in a St. Paul park earlier this week.
    Parishoners leaving St. Hubert's Roman Catholic Church Saturday night had very little to say about their priest. Many seemed dazed some were even angry when questioned about 53-year-old Father Michael John Krenik and the arrest that led to his resignation.
    In beautiful St. Paul parks with the Mississippi River as a backdrop, police know where to look. Inside wooded and secluded areas, police say men cruise for sex from other men.
    "Officers were in these specific locations in response to citizen complaints of lewd acts occurring in public, in these park areas," said Officer John Keating with the St. Paul police department.
    It was those complaints from people who live near Crosby Farm Park and another area near Mississippi River Boulevard and Eustes Street that led to undercover officers going in to see exactly what was going on.
    "This past Thursday, four people were cited in two park areas of the city after exposing themselves to undercover police officers," said Keating.
    Two men were arrested in Crosby Farm Park. Two others were nabbed near the Mississippi and Eustes area. One of those arrested was Krenick.
    Krenik's public arrest sheet lists his address as 8201 Main Street, Chanhassen. That's the address to St. Hubert's Roman Catholic Church.
    As people poured out of the church, a handful of them said they learned of Father Krenik's resignation during mass.
    While some were angry, others said they would pray for Krenik.
    In a written statement, the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis said Krenik had voluntarily resigned and that he would be restricted from all public ministry until the case was resolved.
    Police say they want people to know if you take part in lewd activities in public places, you will be caught.
    "The St. Paul police department wants to ensure that our park areas remain safe and welcoming to everybody and we encourage anybody that sees anything illegal or suspicious in any of our park areas to call police immediately," Keating said.
    St. Paul police have done numerous sex stings in different parks around the city.
    Just three months ago, the president of Hill-Murray School in Maplewood, Joseph Peschges, was arrested for allegedly touching an undercover officer in the groin area, over his clothes.
    Peschges was one of nine men arrested in that July sting operation. "


    Former lesbian says her life was changed by love by Bryan Malley

    "TWIN CITIES - "Christians need to know what draws a person into the gay lifestyle and what they can do to help people break free of it," Janet Boynes, a former lesbian and founder of Janet Boynes Ministries, said.
    Boynes experienced and witnessed abuse at the hands of four men who fathered seven children with her mother.
    "Determined to avoid the same fate for myself, I became a tom-boy," Boynes said. "I hung out with guys and became known as a bully."
    Boynes moved from Philadelphia, Penn., to St. Paul to attend college and became a Christian. She later became engaged to a Christian man and the couple enrolled in pre-marital counseling at their church. Boynes' fianc� traveled a lot so she spent a lot of time with her girlfriends.
    "When a girl I'd met at work initiated a sexual relationship one night, I was caught off guard and went along with it," Boynes said. "Immediately I knew how Eve must have felt. Condemned."
    When Boynes revealed her experience to her pastor, he told her the wedding would have to be canceled. She then told her fianc� everything, the couple split up and Boynes embraced the gay lifestyle.
    "I never found the satisfaction I was looking for in the gay lifestyle," she said. "Instead, I went from relationship to relationship to relationship and became totally confused."
    Boynes and her partner sought the advice of a priest and he assured them her lesbian lifestyle was OK, but Boynes continued to wrestle with her conscience and her past Christian life. Fourteen years passed, and Boynes eventually moved to Maple Grove. Whenever she drove past the Maple Grove Assembly of God church, Boynes claims an inner voice would tell her that someday she'd be going to that church.
    "The idea stayed with me even though I was doing drugs, cheating on my steady girlfriend, suffering from an eating disorder and extremely unhappy," she said.
    One night, Boynes ran to the grocery store and noticed a woman in the parking lot with her groceries at 3 a.m. The woman had been helping her son move into the dorms at North Central Bible College so Boynes knew she was a Christian.
    "We talked and talked, and then she invited me to come to her church-Maple Grove Assembly of God," Boynes explained.
    Boynes accepted the invitation and later attended a Bible study at the church with nine "feminine women" who showed her love and gave her pointers on how to dress and apply makeup.
    "They educated me about spiritual warfare and helped me break the stronghold the devil had erected over my life," Boynes said.
    She sold her home and moved in with a Christian family for a year.
    "Gradually my mess became the message of salvation," Boynes said. "It was a real struggle, but I wanted God more than I wanted the lesbian lifestyle."
    Six years later, Boynes still has to pray daily and seek accountability so that she won't slip back into her former lifestyle. She explained that many gays and lesbians "hate" Christians because they feel condemned.
    Recently, she founded Janet Boynes Ministries to share her testimony with those who want and need to hear it.
    "Through Janet Boynes Ministries, we hope to minister to the homosexual community by sharing the love of Christ and the power of the testimony of a life changed by that love," Boynes said.
    The new organization will also "help churches learn how to reach those struggling with homosexuality and to increase societal awareness on the fact that sexual orientation is a choice."
    Boynes will be hosting the first ex-gay booth at the National Education Association convention in Orlando, Fla. on June 29.
    "I know God wants me to speak out about these things," Boynes said. "After all, everybody wants the same things: love and acceptance. When God calls us out of darkness and into light (1 Peter 2:9), He calls us in love."
    For more information about the newly formed Janet Boynes Ministries, contact Janet at The Web site will launch near the end of June. "

  • MN Report: Rising HIV Rates In Gay Youth, Women, Apr 15, 2009 1:36 pm US/Central (

  • "MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) ― The Minnesota AIDS Project took the opportunity to remind Minnesotans of their concerns.
    The Minnesota Department of Health reports that the state's number of HIV infections continues to creep upward after 326 new cases were diagnosed in 2008.
    Of the cases found in 2008, 238 were males and 88 were females and there was a particular spike in infections among males ages 13 to 34.
    The Minnesota AIDS Project took the opportunity to remind Minnesotans of their concerns: that an estimated 2,500 Minnesotans may be unaware they are infected, that women are a fast emerging population for new infections, and that the virus is proliferating rapidly among gay or bisexual men under 25 years of age.
    The report also said that infection rates are higher among men and women of color than whites.
    The organization did note cases of HIV being spread through intravenous drug use were minimized.
    "When compared against national prevalence rates, Minnesota continues to rate better than many other states," said Minnesota AIDS Project's executive director Lorraine Teel. "However, the rising trend in young gay/bisexual men and the high rate of HIV in the African American community needs to be addressed aggressively to prevent rapid increases of HIV in these very much at-risk communities."
    According to the Minnesota Department of Health, 27 percent of the new infections recorded were from women. Ten years ago, only 18 percent were accountable to women.
    "The rise of incidence in women of all races is also extremely troubling and illustrates the ongoing importance of funding education, prevention, and an open discussion to reduce the stigma associated with this disease so all communities can address the issue openly to meet the challenges in our state," said Teel. "We need to be able to discuss sexual transmission and other sensitive topics in a forthright manner to stop this virus."
    The department also noted 42 new cases from men under the age of 25. The Minnesota AIDS Project reported that the statistic clearly indicates a lack of education to young gay or bisexual males about the risks of AIDS.
    The department said Wednesday that 8,819 cases of HIV/AIDS have been reported since it started tracking AIDS in 1982 and HIV in 1985. Nearly 3,000 of those diagnosed have died.
    The Minnesota AIDS Project suggested anyone with questions about HIV contact AIDSLine at 612-373-AIDS in the Twin Cities metro area and 1-800-248-AIDS statewide."

  • Churches

  • Churches contribute to gay suicides, most Americans believe,

  • "..But Jim Daly, the head of Focus on the Family, argued in a commentary for CNN that Christian churches are not to blame.
    "To violate the dignity of another person, in any form or fashion, is to contradict the very basis of Gospel-centered living. And to suggest that an orthodox understanding of Christianity encourages abuse against homosexuals is a sad misreading of the very tenets of the faith," he said.
    "Some self-described Christians do not act in Christ-like ways toward those who are different than they are," he conceded.
    "They save their harshest judgments for the sins they don't struggle with themselves. That is not biblical Christianity in practice," he said.
    Only five out of 100 people gave churches generally an A for their handling of "the issue of homosexuality" in the Public Religion Research Institute survey, while 28 percent said their own church handled it well...

  • Suicides among gay and lesbian youth,

  • "Concerning feelings of being trapped:

    * Melissa Fryrear, a gender issues analyst for the Fundamentalist Christian activist group Focus on the Family identifies herself as a former lesbian. She said:
    "From my vantage point the people that I found were suicidal are those who thought they were trapped in homosexuality, who thought they had to live homosexually. And so they actually had been filled with hope when we shared with them that, 'No, you can come out of this'."
    * Alan Chambers, president of Exodus International, a conservative Christian ministry to gays and lesbians said:
    "That was my experience. I was told there was only one option for me: 'You have to accept who you are and there is no other way.' And for me, as a teenager when I was coming out of homosexuality 15 years ago, that made me want to die. (It wasn't) until I found that there was an alternative, that there was something for me, for someone who was pursuing what I was pursuing, that caused me to want to live."
    The term "coming out of homosexuality" as used by religious and social conservatives, is often interpreted as changing one's sexual orientation from homosexual to heterosexual. In practice, it exclusively or almost exclusively means to adopt a celibate lifestyle and live the remainder of their life without any possibility of an intimate partner.
    There is much anecdotal evidence that as long as gays and lesbians believe that change is possible, many of them desperately seek reparative and other therapies in an attempt to change their sexual orientation. many gays and lesbians experience an improvement in their mental health after realizing that their homosexual orientation was caused by situations beyond their control and is probably fixed without any possibility of change..

    Cross Dressing

  • A Christian's Journey Through Cross-Dressing Rachel Miller,

  • "I have vivid recollections of cross-dressing since the age of five. Virtually every reference I heard or read was derogatory, so it seemed prudent not to tell anyone. Instead, I attempted, unsuccessfully, to submerge my feelings and drive them out of my life. As the years went by, my secret became unbearably heavy.
    Then, in my early forties, a great burst of lightness entered my life. I was convinced it would permanently displace the heaviness. Through a mutual acquaintance, I met my wife-to-be on a commuter train and we quickly became friends. She was warm, friendly and non-judgmental. Over time, like turned to love and, with our marriage, a deeper love developed that was as close to unconditional as I have ever experienced.
    But, even with Marsha's loving presence, cross-dressing didn't become a thing of the past. It steadfastly refused to go away. I previously thought that it simply filled a void in my life. Now my life was full, so why didn't it go away? I didn't understand.
    So, at age 50, I embarked on a quest for the truth about my sexuality and emotions. Eventually I was able to understand that cross-dressing was an integral part of myself, that it was neither good nor bad, and that I had to balance it with all of the other aspects of my psyche and my life. ....
    ...Telling our stories can be all the more traumatic for cross-dressers seeking a place within a faith community. The desire of most Christians who cross-dress is simply to be accepted as members of a congregation. We are hesitant to confide in our clergy for fear of being labeled sinners, excluded from the church and separated from God. As a result, most of us say nothing and continue to hide the truth, thus re-enforcing our guilt and shame. ...

  • Cross-dressing and Christianity A REAL Man's Struggle Overcoming Cross-dressing! Randall Wayne's Testimony

  • "A Really Short Background

    In or about October of 1996 I experienced an onslaught of temptation and spiritual warfare in the area of cross-dressing. This strong desire to dress in women’s clothes was totally out of the blue, although it was something that I had experienced before in my life. At times, the temptation was so strong that it was all I could think about. As a result, I could not focus on the normal activities of life. Fortunately, I found help and hope. Today I can truly say after over 30 years of dealing with this, "Thank God I’m free!"
    I was an only child, so the closest thing to siblings I had to play with were my girl cousins who were close to my age. Of course, playing with girls meant playing girl games, like playing house and dress up. So, the overall effect was that I was raised in a feminized environment where the female role was dominant and the male role was passive. In my inner being, I found the feminine role attractive, but modeled after the passive male image.
    One of my earliest remembrances was when I was about five or six and my mother would have me try on clothes she was sewing for my girl cousins to hem the skirts and make other alterations. As I grew older and into adolescence, I had a strong desire to try on female clothes. I remember finding discarded dresses, wigs, earrings, etc. and trying them on and feeling an erotic excitement. I formed a strong association at that time between wearing female clothing and sexual release. Later in life in times of stress, I would retreat to that same activity to feel relief. This was my secret world where I could fantasize about being beautiful and soft.
    On the outside, in many other ways I was a typical boy. I was active in Boy Scouts, worked on cars, liked to go target shooting, and was not feminine at all - just "a nice guy."....
    After we had been married for a few years and had both of our boys, the pressures of work and family seemed to increase my desire to cross-dress. I would look for any occasion to cross-dress, especially Halloween. On unexpected opportunity came at a church banquet where one of the ladies of the church asked me if I would dress up as Dolly Parton. This was a real treat because not only could I cross-dress, but I could do it right at church! During these years, I would feel guilt, confess the cross-dressing as sin, but eventually do it again. I never really admitted to myself I was a cross-dresser. ...
    Even though cross-dressing was a source of release, it was also a cycle of guilt and shame. Every time I would do it, I would feel shame. The shame would cause me to feel even worse about myself than I did before and I would be tempted to cross-dress again to relieve that shame and so on.
    Eventually, I got to the point where I just decided to "white knuckle" it and quit cross-dressing. Whenever a temptation would come along, I would just ignore it. I really didn’t give a thought to cross-dressing for two or three years. I managed to totally repress any feelings or thoughts about cross-dressing. Then, the Lord engineered what I believe to be an incredible set of circumstances.

    The Spiritual Warfare
    *see Prayer: Intercession, Spiritual Warfare, etc...
    " We were happy in our church at the time, but on the day of our 19th wedding anniversary, the Lord impressed both my wife and I that we should move on. "But to where?" we wondered. We decided to visit a new church much closer to home and we were so led by the Lord that we joined. One of the first sermon series was titled "Everyday Victory for Everyday People." This study in spiritual warfare would prove to be life changing.
    After going through the study, my wife approached me one day and said that she felt a need to confess a stronghold in her life so that she might be delivered. I already knew about her stronghold, and I said, "Well, since you confessed yours, let me confess mine." In the previous days, I had started to experience some of the old temptations of cross-dressing. I said, "You know I struggle with smoking, but I also have another problem that I have struggled with all my life." At that time I told my wife that I had strong urges to wear women’s clothes. I was also quick to say that I was not asking for her acceptance or permission of any cross-dressing. I also explained that the battle at that point was mainly in my mind and that I had never been unfaithful to her. She handled my confession very well and said she would pray with me about how to deal with this problem.
    I decided that I needed more information about cross-dressing, so I logged on to the Internet and started doing searches on "cross-dressing" and "Christian." This proved to be a mistake. I learned everything the world had to say on the topic and I learned what the arguments that other Christians had constructed to justify the behavior. At this point, I became very confused and deceived. I saw so many images of guys like me transformed into beautiful women, that I was really tempted to seek out a makeover for myself....

Says Nicolosi, “In 15 years, I have spoken with hundreds of homosexual men. I have never met one who said he had a loving, respectful relationship with his father.”
    This is not to say that every homosexual is born fatherless, but a marked distance in the father-son relationship is a significant contributor to the homosexual phenomena.
    Fathers are at premium today. When I say fathers, I mean dads who invest themselves heart and life in their sons and daughters.

  • "...In her recently published book, Restoring Sexual Identity: Hope for Women Who Struggle with Same-Sex Attraction, former lesbian Anne Paulk has made a significant contribution to our understanding of the root causes of female same-sex attractions, and offers the reader hope for genuine change. Paulk's book is a compassionate and thoughtful description of her own lesbian struggles, and she carefully describes similar patterns of family dysfunction and woundedness in the lives of many women who have dealt with their same-sex feelings.
    Mrs. Paulk, married to ex-gay activist John Paulk, has three sons of her own. She introduces three women in Chapter One to describe common threads she has found in the lives of women who develop same-sex attractions. In her work with women struggling with lesbianism, Mrs. Paulk has discovered that childhood trauma, poor self-image, anger at men, poor relationships with either or both parents, and pro-homosexual media propaganda are several key elements in women developing an attraction to other women. As Paulk notes throughout her book, same-sex attraction is seldom really driven by sexual needs; it is driven by an unconscious desire to be loved and to trust another person. It is also frequently driven by a desire to reconnect with the feminine but in the wrong way. .....

  • Black pastors bash NAACP for endorsing gay marriage The Daily CallerBy Meagan Clark - The Daily Caller | The Daily Caller – 8 hrs ago (Tuesday, May 22nd 2012)

  • "The Coalition of African American Pastors announced Tuesday that it does not agree with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s decision to endorse the legalization of same-sex marriage.
    CAAP launched a petition last week to oppose broadening the legal definition of marriage.
    The coalition includes leaders of black churches and veteran civil rights leaders who marched with Martin Luther King Jr.
    The NAACP voted to endorse same-sex marriage Saturday, and NAACP President Benjamin Jealous publicly endorsed gay marriage Monday.
    “The NAACP has abandoned its historic responsibility to speak for and safeguard the civil rights movement,” CAAP founder and President William Owens said Tuesday. “We who marched with Rev. King did not march one inch or one mile to promote same-sex marriage.”
    Jealous called gay marriage a civil right, and said he believes “it is the responsibility, the history of the NAACP to speak up on the civil rights issues of our times.”
    CAAP says it believes gay Americans should have equal civil rights, but that it does not believe there should be a right to legally marry someone of the same sex.
    On behalf of the coalition, Owens said, “We call on all Americans to respect the legitimate civil rights of gay people to be free from violence, harassment, to vote, to hold jobs.”
    Owens drew from King’s “Letter From Birmingham Jail” to explain what he believes is the difference between a just and unjust law.
    According to Owens, a just law is a man-made code that squares with the law of God, and an unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with moral law.
    Owens also drew from St. Thomas Aquinas and said, “An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.”
    “Same-sex marriage is an attempt to do the opposite of what Rev. King did,” Owens said. “It’s an attempt by men to use political power to declare that an act contrary to God’s law and to the natural law is a civil right.”
    CAAP held a press conference last week in Memphis, where King died, to call on President Barack Obama to reconsider his support for gay marriage.
    “Our only weapons in this fight are the weapons of Rev. King: truth and love and courage,” Owens said."

    Jennifer Knapp From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    "..(born April 12, 1974 in Chanute, Kansas) is an American-Australian[1] folk rock musician. She is best known for her first hit single "Undo Me" from her debut album Kansas (1998), and the song "A Little More" from her Grammy Award-nominated album Lay It Down (2000). The Way I Am (2001), was also nominated for a Grammy. In total, the three albums have sold approximately 1 million copies. After taking a 7-year hiatus, Knapp announced in September 2009 that she was returning to music. On May 11, 2010 she released her newest album Letting Go with the hit single "Dive In". The album debuted at #73 on the Billboard Hot 200 chart...
    Early life
    Knapp was born in Chanute, Kansas on April 12, 1974,[2] and was brought up irreligiously along with her twin sister Lori.
    As a classically-trained musician Knapp played trumpet in high school, and attended Pittsburg State University on a music scholarship.[3] It was there that she converted to Christianity and eventually incorporated spiritual themes into her music.[3]
    From there, Knapp began performing throughout the Midwest selling her two custom recordings at shows. Her second indie album, Wishing Well, attracted the attention of Nashville label Gotee Records, who signed her the following year.
    Personal life
    Following the end of her 2002 tour, Knapp moved to Australia and has since taken up Australian citizenship.[12] In several interviews published in April 2010, Knapp announced that she is a lesbian, and has been in a same-sex relationship since 2002.[7][13][14] She has said that her decision to leave the Christian music industry was not due solely to her coming out but to a number of factors including stress and burnout.[7] Despite her sexual orienation, Knapp says that she not only still holds to her Christian faith, but feels that by being honest about her sexuality that her faith is actually enhanced.[15] However, she has said that Letting Go "isn't a Christian record" and that it would not be marketed towards Christian radio

  • Jennifer Knapp, Christian music singer, announces she is gay on eve of 'Letting Go' album release By Soraya Roberts DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER Monday, April 19th 2010, 10:48 AM

  • "Jennifer Knapp is just the way she is and doesn't care who knows it.
    The former Christian music singer, whose last album "Way I Am" was released in 2001, has come out as a lesbian, CNN reports.
    The Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter vanished from the music scene seven years ago amidst rumors - which now turn out to be true - that she was gay.
    Prior to the release of her new album "Letting Go" next month, Knapp reveals that she has been in a same-sex relationship for eight years.
    "I'm aware that the evangelical community has problems with divorce and many other facets of their artists, let alone homosexuality," she told CNN. "The last thing I wanted to do was to have someone go out and buy a record and feel like they had been hoodwinked."
    The 36-year-old singer has traded in Christian rock for a folksy new sound and is thus no longer working with a faith-based label.
    Knapp tells CNN that she moved to Australia in 2003 in order to recuperate from exhaustion.
    The singer’s career took off in 1998, when her first hit single, "Undo Me," was released. The next year she performed at Lilith Fair and won the 1999 Dove Awards for New Artist and Best Rock Song for "Undo Me," from her debut album "Kansas" (1998). Her 2000 album "Lay It Down" earned her a Grammy nomination in 2001.
    The Kansas native began writing music again two years ago and says her decision to reveal her sexuality happened "organically."
    Knapp is one of the few female faith-based musicians to come out.
    In 2008, Christian singer-songwriter Ray Boltz revealed he was gay. A year later, gospel singer Tonex revealed his homosexuality on the popular Christian show "The Lexi Show."

  • Formerly Gay Alt-Folk Singer Michelle Shocked Slams Gay Marriage During Concert By Kate Stanhope | TV Guide – 3 hours ago (Tuesday, March 19th 2013)

  • " Alt-folk singer Michelle Shocked incited a mass walk-out during her concert Sunday after launching into an anti-gay-marriage diatribe that incited a mass walkout, Yahoo! reports.
    Shocked, who first broke out in 1988 with her debut album Short Sharp Shocked, is known for having largely liberal-leaning fans and was performing in the very LGBT-friendly San Francisco. Shocked performed one set without fuss before she began talking about the evils that would happen if California's Proposition 8, which bans same-sex marriage, is overturned by the courts. She cited verses from the Old Testament condemning homosexuality and encouraged the crowd to go on Twitter "and say 'Michelle Shocked says God hates f---.'" Photos: Out and proud celebrities
    Shocked's performance, and subsequent rant, was cut short by the venue operator who said that, as a gay man, he could not allow the show to go on and told her to leave the stage. Hours after the incident, many fans went online and said they believe her career is done. At least eight venues have canceled scheduled Shocked performances in light of her remarks.
    Her words came as a particular surprise since Shocked, 51, was identified as a lesbian for much of her career — although she has repeatedly denied the label. As recently as 2008, Shocked told the Dallas gay publication Edge, "I'm here to say not that homosexuality is wrong. I'm here to say that there is reconciliation through the blood of Jesus Christ for every human being on the face of this earth. And no one is entitled to speak on God's behalf and say who does and who doesn't have that right. Because that price was paid—purchased by the blood of Jesus Christ. ... Homosexuality is no more or less a sin than fornication. And I'm a fornicator with a capital F."
    Shocked, who was married for 12 years to journalist Bart Bull, most recently made headlines in November 2011 when she was arrested during the eviction of the Occupy Los Angeles movement. ."

  • Matthew Shepard From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  • "The attack
    Shepard's murderers, Russell Arthur Henderson and Aaron James McKinney, awaiting testimony in court (1998)
    Shortly after midnight on October 7, 1998, 21-year-old Shepard met McKinney and Henderson in a bar. McKinney and Henderson offered Shepard a ride in their car.[4] Subsequently, Shepard was robbed, pistol whipped, tortured, tied to a fence in a remote, rural area, and left to die. McKinney and Henderson also found out his address and intended to rob his home. Still tied to the fence, Shepard was discovered eighteen hours later by Aaron Kreifels, who at first thought that Shepard was a scarecrow. At the time of discovery, Shepard was still alive, but in a coma.
    Shepard suffered a fracture from the back of his head to the front of his right ear. He had severe brain stem damage, which affected his body's ability to regulate heart rate, body temperature and other vital signs. There were also about a dozen small lacerations around his head, face and neck. His injuries were deemed too severe for doctors to operate. Shepard never regained consciousness and remained on full life support. As he lay in intensive care, candlelight vigils were held by the people of Laramie.[5]
    He was pronounced dead at 12:53 A.M. on October 12, 1998 at Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins.[6][7][8][9] Police arrested McKinney and Henderson shortly thereafter, finding the bloody gun as well as the victim's shoes and wallet in their truck.[3]...
    The trial
    In court the defendants used varying rationales to defend their actions. They attempted to use the "gay panic defense", arguing that they were driven to temporary insanity by alleged sexual advances by Shepard. At another point they stated that they had only wanted to rob Shepard and never intended to kill him.[3]...
    ABC's 20/20 report
    In late 2004, ABC's Elizabeth Vargas reported on an investigation into the murder for the television program 20/20. Though Vargas primarily relied on personal interviews with people involved with the matter, the report was billed as exploring "New Details Emerging in the Matthew Shepard Murder."[3] At the forefront was the possibility that the murder had in fact been motivated by drugs rather than Shepard's sexual orientation. McKinney, Henderson and Kristen Price (McKinney's girlfriend) claimed in these interviews that the attack was a result of heavy drug use, a robbery and a beating gone awry.[3] Price, in her interview with Vargas, ultimately openly remarked: "I do not think it was a hate crime at all. I never did."[3] This statement contradicted Price's first interview with 20/20 in 1998, in which she said (of McKinney and Henderson's attack): "They just wanted to beat him bad enough to teach him a lesson, not to come on to straight people, and don’t be aggressive about it anymore.”[17] In the report, Price and McKinney's long-time friend Tom O'Connor, on whose property McKinney and Price once lived, both stated their belief that McKinney was bisexual. O'Connor stated that he and McKinney had sex in the past. However, when Vargas asked McKinney whether he had ever had a sexual experience with another male, he said that he had not.[3]
    The 20/20 report also mentioned a statement by O'Connor that Shepard told him he was HIV-positive.[3]
    Retired Police Chief of Laramie, Commander Dave O'Malley — who was also interviewed by ABC and criticized the 20/20 report — pointed out that the drug motive does not necessarily disqualify the anti-gay motive: "My feelings have been that the initial contact was probably motivated by robbery because they needed money. What they got was $20 and a pair of shoes ... then something changed and changed profoundly... But, we will never, ever know because Matt’s dead and I don’t trust what [McKinney and Henderson] said."...

  • Wyo. town reflects 10 years after Shepard's murder By BOB MOEN, Associated Press Writer Sat Oct 11, 6:00 AM ET (

  • " LARAMIE, Wyo. - A decade after a gay college student was beaten, tied to a fence and left for dead, many in this small college town are still struggling with the aftermath of a crime that triggered nationwide sympathy and brought a re-examination of attitudes toward gays.
    Ten years ago, 21-year-old Matthew Shepard died after being beaten and left in the cold by two men he met in a bar. Residents were shaken by the brutality of the crime, and the media descended on the town trying to explain why it happened.
    Today, residents lament Shepard's death but insist it doesn't define Laramie or its people.
    "It's not representative of Laramie, of Wyoming or the West," said Melodie Edwards, who owns a downtown bookstore.
    "We have the same problems here that exist everywhere in the country — racism, sexism, homophobia all exist," said Jim Osborn, a University of Wyoming employee who is gay. "But I think that most people in Laramie are decent, friendly people who understand that while you might not like somebody, and you even have the right to hate somebody, you don't have the right to hurt somebody because of that."
    Nestled in a valley between two mountain ranges, Laramie has a population of about 27,000, including roughly 10,000 students at the university.
    "It's as close to small-town, rural America as you can get and still have a comprehensive university," said University of Wyoming President Tom Buchanan, who grew up in New York and moved to Wyoming more than 30 years ago.
    There was a gay community here in the fall of 1998 when Shepard enrolled at the university. He joined its Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered Association, a student group with about 50 members.
    Shepard died Oct. 12, five days after his 5-foot-2, 105-pound body was found lashed to the lonely fence outside town. He was beaten so severely — his skull was fractured in six places — that the bicyclist who saw him initially thought he was a scarecrow lying on the ground.
    The two men who killed him are serving life sentences in prison.
    Residents disagree whether Shepard's death was a hate crime, a drug-induced robbery that went too far or both. Prosecutors' cases included evidence with elements of robbery, drugs and hate against gays, but the court only determined that the men were guilty of murder and not why they killed Shepard.
    Whatever the case, life in Laramie changed.
    "One of the things that the Matthew Shepard murder did was it reminded all of us, and it continues to remind all of us, that there is no place that is immune from random acts of senseless violence that plague our country, our society," Buchanan said.
    Laramie was thrust into the national spotlight by media attracted by the murder of a young gay college student in a small Western town. It also produced an outpouring of films, books and plays.
    "A lot of the coverage I believe really capitalized on the mythos of the West," said Osborn, who was chairman of the student gay group when Shepard joined and now works for the university's diversity and equal employment opportunity office. "It was phrases like `He was a different kind of cowboy.' Matt wasn't a cowboy!"
    Some of the coverage attempted to blame Laramie for somehow creating the murderers. Osborn recalled seeing one TV report quoting a local man at a bar as saying gay people should expect to be attacked in Wyoming.
    "The crime of two people was presented as a crime of the city," Mayor Klaus Hanson said.
    Residents say prejudice against gays in Laramie is no different from anywhere else.
    "I think people are pretty laissez-faire out here, pretty independent, a pretty accepting state," said Jeff Figg, a retired businessman who moved here six years ago. "This is a much more enlightened area, the exact opposite of what the press portrayed it."
    Beth Loffreda, a UW English professor who wrote a book about residents' response to the murder, said that even though Wyoming lawmakers have declined to pass a hate crime law she has noticed a change in how residents treat gays.
    "I think it's a little better here for gay and lesbian people than it was 10 years ago," she said.
    There wasn't much in the way of publicly marking the 10-year anniversary of Shepard's death. A week ago, the university dedicated a bench that had been donated by a foundation set up by Shepard's parents to help support gay youths.
    Osborn, Buchanan and others say the best way to honor Shepard is by treating gays as they would heterosexual people.
    "We have realized in the most painful way that we cannot take tolerance and respect for granted," Buchanan said at the bench dedication ceremony. "Instead we must make it an explicit part of our mission even when this posture exposes students, parents, community members and our leaders to ideas and concepts that challenge ingrained ways of thinking.""

    For example, the removal of homosexuality as a psychological disorder from the American Psychiatric Association's DSM (Diagnostic Statical Manual) in the early 1970's was not the result of convincing, newly discovered evidence which clearly established the theory that this sexual orientation and expression was genetic (in-born). ...

  • IS HOMOSEXUALITY A SIN FOR NEW TESTAMENT BELIEVERS? [Does Jesus condemn or condone homosexuality?] , from

    " When David acknowledged his sins of adultery and murder by having Bathsheba's husband Uriah killed so he could then take Uriah's beautiful wife Bathsheba in adultery, he didn't repent toward Bathsheba, or Uriah, or even the nation of Israel, but rather said:

    "Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight" (Psalm 51:4).

    Although David was not a spiritually converted man (he died with murder in his heart, I Kings 2:1-9), he nonetheless, had the sense to know that it is God and not man who determines what is sin and what is righteousness. Any king of any nation has the right to send any soldier to the front line where he may well be killed, and then steal the man's wife back home. But that doesn't make it right in God's eyes.
    James informs us that:

    "There is one Lawgiver Who is able to save and to destroy" (James 4:12).
    God also inspired Isaiah to write:

    "WOE unto them that call evil good and good evil... Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! ...Which justify the wicked [Heb: rasha, 'morally wrong] for reward..." (Isa. 5:20-21 & 23)....

    Did the Apostle Paul have totally different criteria than that of Isaiah? Was Paul's condemnation of "women with women and men with men" an example of "rasha" (morally wrong), but somehow this same sin to Isaiah would be "good" and not "evil?" Nonsense...

  • Disgraced pastor Haggard: I was abused as child, (Wednesday, November 12th of 2008)

  • " COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Disgraced evangelical pastor Ted Haggard says he was sexually abused as a child and that the experience "started to rage in my mind and in my heart" when he was caught up in a sex scandal involving a male prostitute. Haggard made the remarks in two recent sermons in Morrison, Ill., ABC's "Good Morning America" reported Wednesday....
    Haggard said one of his father's employees "had a sexual experience with me" when Haggard was 7, according to audio recordings of the sermons posted on the ABC News Web site.
    Haggard said he later became "a conservative Republican, loving the word of God, an evangelical, born-again, spirit-filled, charismatic, all those things."But some of the things that were buried in the depths of the sea from when I was in the second grade started to rage in my mind and in my heart," he said.
    In 2006, Haggard was fired as pastor of the 14,000-member New Life Church in Colorado Springs when a former male prostitute alleged they had a cash-for-sex relationship. The man also said he saw Haggard use methamphetamine. Haggard also stepped down as president of the National Association of Evangelicals.
    He has said some of the allegations were exaggerated but he has never offered specifics.
    Haggard, who is starting an insurance agency in Colorado Springs, did not immediately return a phone message left by The Associated Press.
    Haggard previously had confessed to undisclosed "sexual immorality," and on the new audio he said: "I really did sin."
    Haggard said his family suffered severely for his actions.
    "My wife — all my sin and shame fell on her. People treated her as if she had fallen," he said. "And my children — they all went through carrying my shame. And I am so sorry that I did that to my family."
    Haggard said he became suicidal but eventually emerged with a stronger Christian faith and marriage than he'd ever had.
    Haggard said church leaders missed an opportunity to use his scandal to "communicate the gospel worldwide through secular media."
    "We consistently blow it" when those opportunities arise, he said.
    "A congressman in trouble, that's the time. A family member gets himself in horrible trouble, that's the time. A preacher gets himself in awful trouble, that's the time," he said, his voice rising to a near-shout.
    Audio of Haggard's Illinois sermons were posted on, but the Web site was unavailable late Wednesday, carrying only the message, "Website Is Being Rebuilt." ___

    Case studies of sexual orientation in twins

    "Scientists now believe that there is a physiological basis for homosexuality, although this is not entirely genetic, as these twin studies show. "
    Case studies of sexual orientation in twins,
    Gay-Straight Identical Twin Study Seeks to Find Gay Genes, By J. Titterton
    "Here's a big question for the gay community: Is it genetics or environment that causes our same-sex attraction? Well, life is never cut and dry, is it—it turns out it may be a combination of the two. The UCLA Center for Gender-Based Biology has launched a new study that aims to identify the genes responsible for sexual orientation and to understand how outside biological factors called epigenetics may influence how those genes express sexuality. Epigenetics refers to the biological effects that regulate which genes are turned on and off in the body and at what place in time.
    But wait, haven't we already done gay twin studies? Well yes—but not quite like this. This new study looks at identical twins who share identical genetics—but not sexualities. The case studies are primarily of twins where one is gay and the other is straight, and attempts to see what differences in the genetic chain cause the diverging sexualities.
    "This study is very different from traditional twin studies,” says lead scientist Dr. Sven Bocklandt of the David Geffen School of Medicine of UCLA. “Instead of simply calculating the role of genetics, we use these gay-straight identical twin pairs to actually identify genes that play a role in sexual orientation.”
    Identical twins have long been used to study the role of genetics in a variety of traits, and with good reason—since identical twins share identical genetics, any deviation between them may in theory be traced to outside factors.
    “Both twins have the same genes, but they might use these genes differently," says Bocklandt. "And that difference in gene use could explain the difference in sexual orientation. If we can identify specific genes that are 'turned off' or 'turned on' among our gay and straight twins, we will have excellent genetic targets for further investigation with respect to sexual orientation."
    The connection between sexuality and genetics has become a hot topic in the scientific community in recent years, and recent studies have pointed increasingly to at least some connection between sexuality and genetics. Of course, for gay and lesbian people, the implications of these studies go beyond scientific curiosity. Politically, the finding of hard evidence supporting genetics' influence on sexuality would help put to rest the "sexuality is a choice" and "lifestyle" arguments of social conservatives. On the other hand, some in the gay community have expressed concern that if a "gay gene" or "genes" were found, scientists might look for a "cure" or "treatment" for it. ...

  • Homosexuality,

  • A Christian Perspective What Causes Homosexuality?
    " Why should Christians be concerned about what causes homosexuality? A proper understanding will help in several ways...
    Remove some of the "homophobia" that many Christians have because of something they do not understand.
    Gain appreciation for the extremely difficult challenge that one who is homosexual will face should he or she try to repent.
    This will in turn help us to have the compassion and longsuffering necessary if we will be able to help those who wish to repent of their homosexuality.
    Before looking at the specific causes of homosexuality, some general comments...
    There is much controversy going on as to whether homosexuality is genetic or environmental in origin. Homosexuals are desperately looking for any evidence that would seem to confirm that they were "born homosexuals." It should be easy to understand why, for if "God made them that way" then it is not their fault they are homosexual and it must not be a sin to act out their desires. So any research that might suggest a genetic origin is quickly offered as a defense. But the vested interest that homosexuals have often prevent them (and more "liberal thinking" heterosexuals) from seeing the obvious.
    I strongly recommend a book called "THE UNHAPPY GAYS: What Everyone Should Know About Homosexuality" by Tim LaHaye (Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., Wheaton Illinois, 1978) to gain a good insight into the factors that lead to the development of homosexuality. In his chapter on "What Causes Homosexuality?" Tim LaHaye first describes...

    The Components For Developing A Predisposition To Homosexuality
    Please carefully note that the components listed below DO NOT CAUSE ONE TO BECOME A HOMOSEXUAL. Rather, they can contribute to the development of a PREDISPOSITION TOWARDS HOMOSEXUALITY. A person can (and many do) have all these components and still not be a homosexual. As listed and describe by LaHaye, these components include:...

  • IS HOMOSEXUALITY A SIN FOR NEW TESTAMENT BELIEVERS? [Does Jesus condemn or condone homosexuality?] ,

    [In search of the elusive homosexual gene]
    " Numerous homosexuals have written me stating that God made them homosexuals, seeing that they were "born this way."...
    Much of this research has been done by gays that have a vested interest in the outcome. Hence much of their research is in fact biased, as is admitted by those who favor homosexuality. Is there a homosexual gene which causes homosexuality, and has any such thing ever been scientifically proven?
    There are hundreds and hundreds of web sites on this one aspect of homosexuality alone. Here are some quotations from the NARTH web site:
    Volunteers from gay groups may only participate if they have a gay brother or sister. Even gay advocates such as J. Michael Bailey (in Bailey & Dawood, 1998) admit: "If, for example, a gay twin who sees an advertisement for a [twin] study may be less likely to call if his twin is heterosexual, this would cause concordance-dependent bias" (p. 10).
    The "genetic and unchangeable" theory has been actively promoted by gay activists and the popular media. Is homosexuality really an inborn and normal variant of human nature? No. There is no evidence that shows that homosexuality is simply "genetic." And none of the research claims there is. Only the press and certain researchers do, when speaking in sound bites to the public.
    Occasionally you may read about a scientific study that suggests that homosexuality is an inherited tendency, but such studies have usually been discounted after careful scrutiny or attempts at replication. No one has found a single heredble genetic, hormonal or physical difference between heterosexuals and homosexuals - at least none that is replicable.While the absence of such a discovery doesn't prove an inherited sexual tendencies aren't possible, it suggests that none has been found because none exists What the majority of respected scientists now believe is that homosexuality is attributable to a combination of psychological, social, and biological factors......
    Interestingly I could find no web-page which discussed whether or not there is a reported gene for child molesters. Not one. And yet some of them also contend that they were "born pedophiles," and at a very young age fantasized over having sex with little children. Homosexuality is not even in the same ball park with the gross perversion of pedophilia, yet both claim to be "born that way." Should we lighten the burden; lighten the sentence; lighten the moral perspective of pedophiles because they CLAIM to be "born that way?" Nonsense. It is not a defense for the pedophile, and neither it is a defense for the homosexual.... ...

    Cohen was gay and is now married with three children. He attributes lesbianism to a woman’s reaction to being rebuffed or abused by her father. He has assisted hundreds of homosexuals, but is under constant attack for undermining the gay political agenda, (i.e. to redefine societal norms.)
    Psychiatrist Jeffrey Satinover has pointed to another cause of homosexuality. A 1990 survey of 1000 gays shows that an older or more powerful partner physically assaulted 37% of them before the age of 19. (“Homosexuality and American Public Life,” 1999, p.24). In addition, according to Anne Moir in “Why Men Don’t Iron,” some men may be “born gay” due to foetal hormone imbalances. They seem to be a minority.
    For many decades, gays were told that they were “sick” and cruelly and wrongly persecuted. The gay activist solution: convince the world that, in fact, it is heterosexuals who are sick. In 1973, they bullied the American Psychological Association into proclaiming homosexuality normal. Together with feminist activists (who believe heterosexuality is inherently oppressive) gay activists began to dismantle all heterosexual institutions: masculinity, femininity, marriage, the nuclear family, the boy scouts, sports, and the military.
    Backed by the financial elite, gay activists and their supporters now largely dictate our cultural sensibility. They are responsible for the puerile pornographic obsession that pervades television, music videos and the Internet. This state of arrested human development is characteristic of many homosexuals. But straights have been homosexualized too. With women acting like men, and vice versa, we can’t establish a “permanent bond with a member of the opposite sex” either. The elite’s purpose is to promote social dysfunction and depopulation. See “Feminism and the Elite Depopulation Agenda”.

    ....Feminism let me off the hook. I didn’t have to worry about providing for a family and giving them leadership. I could smoke pot, seek “enlightenment” and never grow up.
    I didn’t understand that becoming a good husband and father is the path to personal development. This is how I would find God, how I would become a man.
    So, at 52, when my children should be leaving home, I contemplate having a baby. At 52, I begin to understand how men not only create new life but also determine a child’s emotional and spiritual experience. I realize now that I need to set the tone in my home. I am too “laissez faire.” Like Abraham and Moses, I need to lead my flock.
    It’s no accident the elite has targeted the patriarchal male. Strong families (and societies) are based on strong male leadership. Without it, sons become effeminate and daughters become masculine. People become dysfunctional: love starved and obsessed with sex....
    These dysfunctional women would have gone nowhere had they not been handpicked to destabilize society. The CIA-feminist assault on the American family mirrors the CIA assault on the Black family, and the Third World.
    The CIA poured cocaine into the ghettoes and destroyed the Black family. Sixty eight percent of black children are now born out of wedlock. Then, the CIA used its control of the media and education (through the foundations) to poison white male-female relations with “feminism”. Today if a man admires a woman on the street, instead of being flattered she acts like he’s assaulted her. Feminism has reduced all human relations to sex, and all sex to exploitation. Our society is sour because of it.
    The white family is in a tailspin. Since 1960, the divorce rate has doubled and the birth rate has been cut in half. Cohabitation has increased eleven-fold. A third of all children are growing up without a father. Tens of millions of people are “missing the boat.”
    The ultimate model for underdevelopment is the Third World. When I was a socialist, I couldn’t understand why capitalists would keep the Third World in a state of poverty, and thwart all political change. Wouldn’t it make more sense to develop these countries as prosperous markets?
    Now I realize the problem is not capitalism but feudalism. A few dozen superrich families control the United States and England just as other families control the Philippines or Equator. The feudal agenda is to concentrate more and more wealth in the hands of the few and stifle or eliminate the many. This is the hideous truth that historian and journalist are paid high salaries to obscure. This is the essence of the New World Order....

In this One World entity, population will be limited by restrictions on the number of children per family, diseases, wars, famines, until 1 billion people who are useful to the ruling class, in areas which will be strictly and clearly defined, remain as the total world population. There will be no middle class, only rulers and the servants. All laws will be uniform under a legal system of world courts practicing the same unified code of laws, backed up by a One World Government police force and a One World unified military to enforce laws in all former countries where no national boundaries shall exist. The system will be on the basis of a welfare state; those who are obedient and subservient to the One World Government will be rewarded with the means to live; those who are rebellious will simple be starved to death or be declared outlaws, thus a target for anyone who wishes to kill them. Privately owned firearms or weapons of any kind will be prohibited." The technique is as follows: Illuminati strategists create the Problem- by funding , assembling, and training an "opposition" group to stimulate turmoil in an established political power (sovereign country, region, continent, etc.) that they wish to impinge upon and thus create opposing factions in a conflict that the Illuminati themselves maneuvered into existence. In recent decades, so called "opposition" groups are usually identified in the media as 'freedom fighters' or 'liberators' (recently the KLA-Kosovo Liberation Army). At the same time, the leader of the established political power where the conflict is being orchestrated is demonized and, on cue, referred to as 'another Hitler' (take your pick: Saddam Hussein, Milosevic, Kadaffi, etc.). The 'freedom fighters' are not infrequently assembled from a local criminal element (i.e. KLA, drug traffickers). In the spirit of true Machiavellian deceit, the same NWO strategists are equally involved in covertly arming and advising the leader of the established power as well (the Illuminati always profits from any armed conflict by loaning money, arming, and supplying all parties involved in a war). The conflict is drawn to the world stage by the controlled media outlets with a barrage of photos and video tape reports of horrific and bloody atrocities suffered by innocent civilians. The cry goes up "Something has to be done!" And That is the desired Reaction (note: the same technique is presently being used to bring about gun control in the United States). The NWO puppeteers then provide the Solution by sending in UN 'Peace Keepers' (Bosnia) or a UN 'Coalition Force' (Gulf War) or NATO Bombers and then ground troops (Kosovo). Once installed, the 'peace keepers' never leave (Bosnia, Kosovo). The idea is to have NWO controlled ground troops in all major countries or strategic areas where significant resistance to the New World Order takeover is likely to be encountered.

  • Ex-pastor Ted Haggard holds home prayer meeting, from By IVAN MORENO, Associated Press Writer Ivan Moreno, Associated Press Writer – Fri Nov 13, 4:27 am ET

  • " COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Former evangelical pastor Ted Haggard says a well-attended prayer meeting at his home wasn't the start of a new church, but a sign of his resurrection three years after he was forced to resign amid a sex scandal.
    "For the people who come tonight, that means they believe in the resurrection in me," he told reporters before the start of the meeting Thursday night. "Because I died. I was buried."
    Many of those who attended carried cookies, pies, and brownies along with their Bibles. By the time prayers began, more than 50 cars were parked outside the home. Reporters weren't allowed inside.
    The one-time evangelical superstar insisted that his intent is not to start a new church, but he isn't ruling out the possibility. He said the reason for starting prayer meetings after three years of exile was a simple one.
    "We were getting lonely," he said.
    Haggard, 53, began his journey to becoming one of the nation's best-known evangelists in 1985 at his home, where he led people in worship. Out of those meetings grew New Life Church, which had about 14,000 members in 2006 and a $50 million prayer campus.
    As head of the National Association of Evangelicals, Haggard had the ear of White House staffers, participating in conference calls with them and lobbying Congress for conservative U.S. Supreme Court justices.
    In late 2006, Haggard's life began to unravel when a male prostitute revealed the pastor had paid him for sex over three years. Haggard, who is married and has five children, said the sexual allegations were false, and admitted only to receiving a massage from his accuser and buying drugs from him.
    "The essence of our faith as Christians is to forgive," said Alan Hawkins, a pastor from Albuquerque, N.M., who traveled to Colorado Springs to be in Haggard's living room Thursday. "When this thing happened, I said, 'Ted, nobody is defined by their worst moments.'"
    New Life Church pastor Brady Boyd issued a short statement on the eve of Haggard's prayer meeting.
    "New Life Church will always be grateful for the many years of dedicated leadership from Ted Haggard and we wish him and his family only the best," Boyd said. The church said it would not comment further.
    Haggard later confessed to "sexual immorality" and resigned as president of the National Association of Evangelicals. He also was forced out at the church he founded.
    As part of a severance package with New Life Church, Haggard agreed to leave Colorado Springs for a period and not speak publicly about the scandal. The family moved back to their $700,000 home down the road from New Life Church in 2007.
    Earlier this year, Haggard admitted he had an "inappropriate" relationship with a church volunteer a few years ago. Haggard said the relationship with the man, who was 22 at the time, did not involve physical contact.
    Haggard, who developed an anti-gay reputation over the years, told KMGH-TV in an interview Wednesday that he has more compassion for gays because of his trials in recent years. Haggard has also said that when he was 7, a co-worker of his father's molested him.
    "People find it hard to stomach me," Haggard admitted Thursday, before the steady stream of people started arriving at his home.
    "I understand," he said, a slight grimace on his face.
    Even so, the people who showed up at his home were willing to give him a second chance.
    "People love a good comeback story," Haggard said. "

    Jimmy Hester is also HIV positive. He went to the Martha�s Vineyard Holistic Retreat because of his HIV. He has made great strides with his physical health, but he also found something he never expected � a relationship with Jesus Christ. That relationship started soon after a Bible study invitation by his doctor, Roni Deluz.
    Now Roy is also meeting with Dr. Deluz, and he�s feeling great. He was recently baptized.
    Roy's pastor, Marcia Buckley, who quickly notes Roy's hunger for God, says, "One thing that he appreciates is the fact that he�s alive in the Lord and that God has given him a chance to live."
    Roy has learned much from his pastor about his former lifestyle.
    "We spoke on and learned about homosexuality and the connotations and everything that go along with it. It's really against God�s will," Roy states. says bluntly.
    Roy devotes himself to the Lord and to purity. He has not been sexually active in more than three years. says bluntly.
    "All that lying and cheating and all that backbiting and all that deceitfulness � I don�t practice that," he says bluntly.

    The Search for a 'Gay Gene' Continues
    'We hear hundreds of testimonies from Christians about God's power that has changed them.'
    For years, scientists have been trying to find a gay gene. Over the weekend, ABC's 20/20 continued the effort.
    Clinical psychologist Dr. Stanton Jones appeared on the program but wasn't given much time to make his case that homosexuality is not genetic.
    "There's no evidence for the kind of simple, powerful genetic causation that so many people in the public believe in," he said on the program.
    Jones said science has proven there is no genetic component. He pointed to a study of identical twins.
    "What they found in studying (the) Australian twin registry, of 27 identical twin pairs where at least one person was gay, in only three of the 27 was the second twin gay as well," he said.
    Jeff Johnston, gender issues analyst for Focus on the Family, said the search for a gay gene has covered more than 30 years.
    "They've studied fruit flies, and finger length, and hair whirls and ears," he said. "And what they found instead is that other factors tend to be more important —experiences, relationships, learned behaviors, thinking and choice."
    Furthermore, Johnston said, studies show people can change.
    "We hear hundreds of testimonies from Christians about God's power that has changed them," he said. This gospel can set anyone free from ANY type of sin!
    Jesus can change any person and this gospel is for WHOSOEVER that is willing to humble him or herself and call on Him and be saved!
    Isaiah chapter 55 says:
    v6 Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near.
    v7 Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

They made her stand before the group 4and said to Jesus, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?" 6They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.
    But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." 8Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
    9At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10Jesus straightened up and asked her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?"

  • Gay man seeking asylum: I can't return to Indonesia By Sarah Hoye, CNN February 16, 2011 2:48 a.m. EST

  • "Philadelphia (CNN) -- Anton Tanumihardja had his bags packed, anxious about his flight back to his home country, Indonesia. It was a trip he did not want to make after spending the past eight years in the United States.
    He feared his absence would mean the end for his relationship with his boyfriend. In a bitter twist, he would be leaving on the night of Valentine's Day.
    At the last minute came a temporary reprieve: Federal immigration officials issued a stay of deportation just three hours before his flight was to take off.
    Tanumihardja, who is openly gay, has filed for political asylum, fearing persecution if he is forced to return to Indonesia. He says his homeland is not tolerant of homosexuals.
    Although the order gives Tanumihardja more time in Philadelphia, it does not guarantee he can stay forever. It remains in effect until authorities decide whether to reopen his political asylum application.
    Tanumihardja, 45, came to the United States in 2002 with a tourist visa from Jakarta, Indonesia. After his visa expired, he filed for political asylum and received a work permit while his case was being reviewed.
    When his asylum application and subsequent appeals were denied, immigration authorities told him he had to leave on Monday.
    "I got a lot of support from the people who love me and want me to stay," Tanumihardja said before breaking down into tears. "I do not expect anything in return from this country. I just want my status to be legal here."
    In addition to his sexual orientation, Tanumihardja is ethnic Chinese and Catholic, making his return to Indonesia more daunting because he would be a triple minority in the predominantly Muslim country.
    "Going back to my country means I have to be closed," he said, referring to his sexual orientation. "I cannot come out in my country and have to be hiding who I am."
    The root issues of Tanumijardja's case are more complicated than simply deporting someone for an overstayed visa or denying a political asylum application, according to his attorney, Lavi Soloway.
    The case sits at the intersection of gay rights and immigration reform, he says.
    "Our whole immigration system, 80% of the cases are based on family unification, it's about keeping the family together," Soloway said. "But this just doesn't register with the LGBT community. It's a reflection of anti-gay discrimination."
    Tanumihardja started dating Brian Andersen last fall, and they have been inseparable ever since.
    Andersen, 28, is an American citizen. If they were heterosexual and planned to marry, Tanumihardja could possibly have been sponsored for residency, Soloway argues.
    Under current U.S. law, the sponsorship option does not exist for same-sex couples.
    Tanumihardja, who has a degree in accounting and marketing, works at Coventry Deli in downtown Philadelphia where he also doubles as the bookkeeper.
    He will continue his fight to stay, he said.
    "I do my best for this county, I love this country," he said.
    Soloway says he fears for Tanumihardja if he is forced to return to Indonesia.
    "He is a gay man who has had the opportunity to live openly as a gay man in Philadelphia. And now he's going back to live where in order to survive, you cannot be open," Soloway said. "We guard against taking for granted our freedom to be with those we love." ....


  • Christian preacher arrested for saying homosexuality is a sin,By Heidi Blake 1:05PM BST 02 May 2010

  • A Christian street preacher was arrested and locked in a cell for telling a passer-by that homosexuality is a sin in the eyes of God.
    "..Dale McAlpine was charged with causing “harassment, alarm or distress” after a homosexual police community support officer (PCSO) overheard him reciting a number of “sins” referred to in the Bible, including blasphemy, drunkenness and same sex relationships.
    The 42-year-old Baptist, who has preached Christianity in Workington, Cumbria for years, said he did not mention homosexuality while delivering a sermon from the top of a stepladder, but admitted telling a passing shopper that he believed it went against the word of God.
    Police officers are alleging that he made the remark in a voice loud enough to be overheard by others and have charged him with using abusive or insulting language, contrary to the Public Order Act.
    Mr McAlpine, who was taken to the police station in the back of a marked van and locked in a cell for seven hours on April 20, said the incident was among the worst experiences of his life.
    “I felt deeply shocked and humiliated that I had been arrested in my own town and treated like a common criminal in front of people I know," he said. ...


    -Adoption/Foster Care

  • British court rules Christian beliefs harmful to children MCC staff report Published by Minnesota Christian Chronicle — March 2011

  • "LONDON — A British court ruled that a couple cannot keep foster children because they are morally opposed to homosexuality because of their faith.
    In the ruling February 28 the justices ruled that homosexual rights “should take precedence” over the rights of religious beliefs. The Judges stated that Christian beliefs on sexual ethics may be ‘inimical’ to children, and they implicitly upheld an Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) submission that children risk being ‘infected’ by Christian moral beliefs.
    Eunice and Owen Johns were foster parents during the 1990s, caring for nearly 20 children, according to the Telegraph. They tired to reapply in 2007 but their application was blocked after a social worker expressed concern about their belief on homosexuality.
    In November 2010 both parties jointly asked the Court to rule on whether the Johns were able to foster children, or whether they could be excluded from doing so under equality law because of their Christian beliefs.
    "The Johns are a mild mannered, ordinary Christian couple, yet they may never be able to foster children again. They were willing to love a child regardless of sexual orientation, but not willing to tell a young child that practicing homosexuality was a positive thing,” said Andrea Minichiello Williams, CEO of Christian Concern and the Christian Legal Centre.
    "Eunice and Owen Johns have been humiliated and sidelined and told by a Government body (the EHRC) that their mainstream Christian views might “infect” children” she continued.
    After the ruling, Eunice Johns told the Telegraph that she and her husband “are extremely distressed at what the judges have ruled today.”
    "It is just one more blow for us," Eunice told CBN. "It seems a dark day for Christians."
    The nature of the judgment, according to the Christian Legal Centre, means that Christians who hold orthodox Christian views on the family, marriage and sexuality will continue to face difficulties in the fostering and adoption process and the Courts will not intervene to stop this from happening.
    Religious groups feel that the ruling, suggesting that Christian with traditional views on sexual ethics are unsuitable as foster parents, will have a serious impact on the future of fostering and adoption in the United Kingdom by Christian couples."

  • Iraqi murders put gay and emo youth on edge From Mohammed Tawfeeq, CNN updated 9:36 AM EDT, Mon March 12, 2012

  • "Baghdad (CNN) -- A recent rash of killings of people perceived to be gay or emo in Iraq has stoked fear within those communities, which worry the government might be unwilling or unable to protect them. At least 14 such victims were killed in Baghdad in the past three weeks, according to a senior Interior Ministry official, who was not authorized to talk to the media. Rights activists claim the number is actually much higher, with some suggesting dozens or more than 100 have been killed since February.
