DANGEROUS ANTI GAY GROUPS
These groups’ disdain for LGBT’s have blinded them to science, reality, the Bible, and most especially the love of Christ. Please pray that one of their own children are never – through God’s creation – given an LGBT orientation. We pity such a child. The methods of these groups bring no results, have been banned in courts, and their practices are in the process of being deemed illegal (across the country) for the harm they cause. These people claim to attempt (not actually complete) to save the “sexually broken” and claim that their plan – a “better plan” – is superior to God’s design of nature and His wondrous variation. They place themselves as God’s “judge and jury” over our Maker’s creation. “Being right” with their ideologies trumps their discrimination of an innocent group. Their lack of humility and godly good sense causes profound and perpetual damage. Such hate only comes from broken souls.
They have been known to offer up false “success” stories. See the deception of Ann and John Paulk below. Do you want to become an instant
celebrity? Tell the fringe far right that you successfully converted your orientation to what it “should” be. It’s easy. All it takes is to be gay and to lie. You
might even get money and speaking positions at conferences. With these folks, compassion and empathy have become impossible as “being right” has
become their graven image of God.
They are dishonest with their figures and have even created mischief of Wikipedia (sourced through the public). They claim that the closure of a near
forty year old “gay reparative” ministry had no direct impact on the member ministries. This would be tantamount to saying the closing of Major League Baseball would have no impact on the minor leagues. Hint to anti-gay groups: If you are going to lie try and make it believable. See HERE
WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE? Yes. But have all things been made possible? Not for the millions of gays who tried to “pray the gay” away and spent nights crying themselves to sleep. We have yet to see these instantaneous transformations:
– a white person becoming black
– a person re-determining their natural hair color (the truly natural color)
– a person of 5 feet becoming a foot taller by choice
– a true gay person willfully be able to choose his orientation
God appears to fearfully and wonderfully make us as he sees fit and we can’t challenge his handiwork.
NONE OF THE GROUPS BELOW CAN CLAIM CONVERSION… BECAUSE THEY CAN’T AND WOULD BE SUED.
Restored Hope Network (began out of the denial that Exodus International had actually failed… they are relentless in their ignorance
and their willingness to destroy lives)
Stephen Black of First Stone Ministries “sexually and relationally broken into a liberating relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. ” NEWS FLASH: Gay people aren’t broken.
Andrew Comiskey of Desert Stream Ministries “the evil one seeks to use sexual and relational brokenness to destroy lives.” NEWS FLASH:
You are the evil one by selling your “snake oil” therapy and destroying lives. LGBT people are NOT broken.
Joe Dallas of Genesis Counseling “But sin, both through its inborn nature and its practice, has perverted what was once good into something that has become a source of tremendous pain and confusion.” NEWS FLASH: It is a source of confusion only to those who listen to fundamentalist bigots. Many LGBT’s live happy lives.”
David Kyle Foster (Mastering Life Ministries) “fix sexual brokenness” TRANSLATION = Being Gay
Dr. Robert Gagnon (Pittsburgh Seminary) His work is what a life of painful over-compensation looks like… so sad (there is room on the other team)
Michael Newman (Christian Collation Reconciliation Ministries) You failed under Exodus International… do you think a new name will make a difference?
Anne Paulk and Frank Worthen (New Hope Ministries). Who’s confused? John Paulk, once a poster boy for the ex-gay movement, disappeared from the public eye after he left his role as chairman of Exodus International in 2003. Now, 10 years later, Paulk is back in the spotlight–but this time he’s apologizing for the reparative therapy he used to promote. News broke when Paulk, who now works as a caterer in Portland, Oregon, told Proud Queer Monthly (PQ) that he no longer supports the “ex-gay movement or efforts to attempt to change [individuals’ sexual orientation].” Paulk then issued a formal letter of apology (full text below), which revealed that he and his wife Anne Paulk, who describes herself as a former lesbian, are seeking a divorce. (The couple participatedtogether in controversial ad campaigns.) See HERE.
Tony Perkins of Family Research Council In the past Perkins paid $82,500 for the KKK’s phone bank and more recently has said that the LGBT movement would soon put Christian conservatives in “re-education camps” and bring out “the boxcars,” a reference to the Holocaust.
Dr. Michael Brown is the product of hyper-intellectualism. He cannot decide whether he is a Jew or Christian so he chose both (Messianic Jew). In a debate he throws out such beauties as “We are called to holiness and not heterosexuality“ thinking the listeners will quake at the awesomeness of his nonsense. He is a living example of what it is like to live “too much in one’s head.” He claims to be an expert on homosexuality but cannot quote one first-century statement regarding a committed gay relationship. He is also in denial about the crumbling of Exodus International which he calls a fallacy. If we can’t trust him to see the reality before his face… why should we believe him on anything else?

The worst of the bunch Scott Lively who has exported his hatred of gays overseas. It is being argued that his incendiary rhetoric has led to deaths and extreme hardship. He is under
U.S. federal investigation. LIBERTY UNIVERSITY IS HELPING PAY FOR HIS DEFENSE. See Lively’s manifesto to the Russian people below.
A War has been set up between:
- The Reformation Groups and other compassionate Christian groups who are horrified to see gay people killed for nothing other than
- The financial behemoth of Liberty University who, through their capital largess, wish to push their anti-gay agenda. They do this despite,
based on what this web sites understanding of public materials, any resistance whatsoever. “Let Uganda kill gays in the name of God.”

Letter to the Russian People
from the ‘International’ topic
Letter to the Russian People
I am Dr. Scott Lively, President of Defend the Family International, a human-rights organization based near Los Angeles, California. I hold a Juris Doctor of Law from Trinity Law School, a Doctor of Theology from the School of Bible Theology (both of which schools are in California), and a certificate in human rights from the International Institute of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France. I am the author of the Riga Declaration on Religious Freedom, Family Values and Human Rights, and several books, including The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party, which is currently being translated into Russian for publication in 2008.
I have just completed a speaking tour through your beautiful country and have come to love your culture and your people. I had the privilege of visiting numerous Russian cities, from Vladivistok and Blagoveschensk in the Far East, to several cities in Siberia, and St. Petersburg in the West. I’ve been impressed by how much Russians are like Americans in many ways: both are intelligent, resourceful, competitive and entrepreneurial. These similarities are both good and bad. They are good in that our nations have a foundation for friendship, but they are bad in that they make Russia vulnerable to the same destructive forces that have harmed America.
The purpose of my visit was to bring a warning about the homosexual political movement which has done much damage to my country and which has now taken root in Russia. This is a very fast-growing social cancer that will destroy the family foundations of your society if you do not take immediate, effective action to stop it.
Homosexuality is a personality disorder that involves various, often dangerous sexual addictions and aggressive, anti-social impulses. This combination of factors causes homosexuals to have an intense loyalty to each other and a common goal to change any society in which they live in organized “gay and lesbian” communities. They have no acceptance in a society that restricts sex to heterosexual marriage, so they work to eliminate sexual morality and remove all limitations on sexual conduct. Importantly, their initial strategy is not promote homosexuality, but to spread sexual immorality among heterosexuals, especially the young people. Only later, when the culture has become sexually corrupt, do they openly step forward to take power as the natural leaders of such a society.
The process of change always begins with the institutions which shape the thinking and behavior of young people. First comes the promotion of sexual promiscuity through mass media, then the introduction of high-profile “gay” celebrities such as Elton John and George Michael, then the development of “gay” political cells in the universities. Later comes the advocacy of “gay rights” by politicians and community leaders.
It is no accident that Hollywood promotes sexual immorality. The American entertainment media is heavily influenced, in some cases controlled, by professional homosexual activists who use television, movies and music as a tool of social engineering. Russian youths are being shaped in this way, just as American youths were, beginning in the late 1950s. However, the now wealthy and powerful global homosexual movement has perfected its tactics and can transform a society very rapidly.
Some Russian universities, especially in the larger cities, now have “gay and lesbian” clubs. Remember that their focus is always on the young people. The homosexuals know they can’t change the values of the older people, but that young people, especially those who are sexually active or cohabiting, are easily persuaded to accept homosexuality as just another lifestyle. In fact, many young people become active defenders of homosexuality, because the “gay” movement portrays all homosexuals as helpless victims of societies who “just want to be left alone to love whom they please.” The universities serve as recruitment centers for both homosexuals and their heterosexual allies and protectors.
The homosexual movement tries to win public sympathy by claiming that homosexuals are “born that way” and cannot change. This is not true. There is a large association of doctors and therapists in the United States who help homosexuals to recover (see www.narth.com) and many thousands of former homosexuals who now live normal lives. But unfortunately, there is an even larger network of homosexual activists and their allies (backed by the full power of the European Union, some US agencies and institutions, and numerous international NGOs), who insist that homosexuality is unchangeable and must be protected by government. Their goal is to pass a law prohibiting discrimination against homosexuals, which then serves as a legal foundation for the rest of their agenda: publicly funded and protected “gay pride” parades in every city, homosexual marriage or its equivalent, promotion of homosexuality to schoolchildren, full acceptance of homosexuality in every part of society, and punishment of people who disagree.
Unfortunately, many Russians believe this could never happen in their country. That’s what we believed in the United States. But the change has already begun in Russia. Just talk to the university students in the major cities, or search on the Internet for “gay” activities in your own city. There was a “gay pride” parade this August in Omsk, the Novosibirsk newspapers are now printing “gay” dating ads, there are at least three “gay” Internet sites for teenagers in Krosnoyarsk, and Saint Petersburg already has a population of homosexual men who meet for sex in certain public parks. These examples may seem like a small threat considering the strong opposition to homosexuality in most of Russian society, but I beg you not to ignore these warning signs. They are like the smoke from a forest fire. If you wait until you can see the flames from your own house it will be too late.
What can be done to protect Russia from the “gay” movement?
First, begin an immediate campaign in every city to promote marriage and family values, and to discourage sexual promiscuity and cohabitation. Young people at every grade level should receive age-appropriate instruction on why sexual morality and family values are important to their future, and older students should learn how to prepare to be a good husband or wife. Every city should offer marriage seminars and counseling to help strengthen existing families. Cities should celebrate family life and offer many pro-family programs and activities.
Second, begin training doctors, psychologists and therapists in the techniques of helping homosexuals to recover, and offer this therapy as a public service. Promote recovery for homosexuals in public advertising and reach out to young people who may suffer from same-sex attraction. Catch it early and spare these youths a lifetime of pain and suffering. Importantly, if Russian authorities publicly promote recovery for homosexuals, the “gays” will not be able to deceive the public with their “born the way” propaganda.
Third, criminalize the public advocacy of homosexuality. My philosophy is to leave homosexuals alone if they keep their lifestyle private, and not to force them into therapy if they don’t want it. However, homosexuality is destructive to individuals and to society and it should never publicly promoted. The easiest way to discourage “gay pride” parades and other homosexual advocacy is to make such activity illegal in the interest of public health and morality.
Fourth, develop family-friendly media alternatives to the immoral products now being imported from the U.S. and Europe. Russian society is rich with talented people. Russian media companies should become competitors for the hearts and minds of the young people, and even set the example for how to produce good quality entertainment that uplifts, not degrades, the human spirit.
It is no secret that the Russian Federation is in competition with the nations of the West, but there is one area in which Russia could quickly take global leadership: family values. While the United States and Europe continue to alienate their family-oriented citizens by following the destructive path of “sexual freedom,” Russia could become a model pro-family society. If this were to occur, I believe people from the West would begin to emigrate to Russia in the same way that Russians used to emigrate to the United States and Europe. Russia might even win back the sympathies of its former states, such as Poland, Latvia and Lithuania, which are now chafing under the pro-homosexual demands of the European Union.
In conclusion, all successful civilizations rest on the foundation of the natural family: men and women united in marriage, devoted to bearing and raising morally healthy children who will replace them in the next generation. This foundation will always be strong in nations which discourage sexual conduct outside of marriage. But wherever the “gay: philosophy of unlimited sexual freedom is accepted, the family structure disintegrates. The Russian people have an important choice before them: to promote marriage and family values, leading to social health or to allow the spread of sexual immorality, leading to social disorder. I pray you will choose the family.
