A Message from the Arab World: Ex-Gays are the Real Gays a survivor of the Middle East thirty years’ plus war, and a resident of the country of Lebanon with its intriguing combination of interesting colonial history, political unrest, and armed conflict, I can say I very well know what the word “terrorism” means. That said, never in my thunderous life had I encountered anything more horrific than the Ex-Gay-phobic LGBT-secular-extremists “guerrillas.”

They are brainwashed with deception, fooling everyone while claiming victim hood to gain acceptance, tolerance, justice, equality, marriage, adoption, and “sexual freedom,” while violently and unfairly hindering their ex-gay peers who seek the same tolerance but are rarely afforded it. Who knows when would their demands ever halt, maybe not before starting to command the legalisation of pedophilia, as we are now seeing.

Liberal Americans and elite Europeans are tricked by them just like the Arab world had been fooled with democracy and peace, while all that exists is submission and unrest. They erroneously think they are helping the LGBT community by defending their destructive rights and banning therapy for those who seek change, when the truth is they are hurting them so awfully, severely, gravely and ignorantly by encouraging a path that would only lead to more depression, addiction, disease, instability, and suicide. Do you really wish such drastic ending to your own children? In case you answer no, then: STOP BEING NAIVE.

Arab Ex-Gays are really “The Gayest” and “The Happiest” amongst all the people struggling with same-sex attractions around the world. They are Christians and Muslims who have a special relationship with One Person in common: “The Virgin Mary.”  They have a distinctive devotion to Her and She makes Herself Visible to them. Do not misunderstand me; She is NOT their Healer but Her Son Is. And just like She Told Him in Cana: “They have no wine,” He would never refuse anything She asks of Him. But first, we must do what He Commands us to do: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

What is love? Love can never be degraded and desecrated to mean just an emotion or mere thrilling feelings. In order to love someone with all your heart, soul, strength and mind, you will need to know what is in your own heart, soul, mind, and also how much strength you have. You get to know yourself, see what is lacking, be aware of your own shortfalls and understand the roots of those deficits. Specialized SSA Psychotherapy and Religious Informed Spiritual Direction are the most helpful methods when used in correlation. Understanding yourself is necessary before you can develop morality, wisdom and discretion. But who needs those virtues and values these days when nobody dares to even speak about them anymore unless they are risking being named traditional, conservative, outdated, and old-fashioned? Those who are silent about social moral degradation or decide to take the decadent side are miserable cowards heading for destruction of not only themselves but of their children and grandchildren!

Arab Ex-Gays are acknowledged with honor and esteem and are looked very high upon within their society. People do not cease to show them admire for the progress, perseverance, strength, and growth they show where many else would fail. One of the many hints for their orientation change is that they start their healing journey and take therapeutic measures at an early age. In contrast, we are now seeing this therapy being foolishly banned for minors in the USA, as if politicians and lawmakers are scientists and know what’s best for youth. In reality, these politicians do not care about youth, but are only advancing their own political objectives.

I thank you God for being born in Lebanon, the only country in the world where laws, regulations, decrees and acts will forever remain moral no matter how hard the western agenda tries to infiltrate it with their evil influences.

Homosexuality by Royal Decree…Long Live Our Gay King!

July 18th, 2013 marked a historic era in the history of the United Kingdom, indeed, in the history of the world. With a royal seal of approval given by Queen Elizabeth II, homosexual marriage has become the law of the English land. Parliament has passed a sweeping national law that allows homosexual men and women to marry members of their own sex.

In the last 50 years since Gay activism became active, there has been one principle, one idea activists have sought to institutionalize the world over. The idea is that homosexuality is inborn in human beings by nature, and as such, is unchangeable. Without the acceptance of this idea, Kings and Queens, Presidents and Prime Ministers, Congresses and churches would never have begun to succeed in passing laws to allow same-sex marriage.

The highly respected and venerable Queen Elizabeth II has apparently conveyed her own belief in the “born-that-way” principle. With her seal of approval, she has indeed entered into a Britannic blunder, the like of which has never been seen over the last 15 English centuries. The land of Shakespeare and The Bible, this emerald of the sea, this blessed plot, this England, the second most historically influential country in western civilization, has become a harbinger of the certainty of the times to come.

gayburgerking6a00d8341c730253ef0105367bb462970c-640wiThe next unarguable step, certain to occur someday very soon, will be the crowning of a Gay British King. He and his, well “King,” will become the royal couple occupying Westminster Castle. If the royal birth of the baby, Prince George, happens to be Gay ,then Queen Elizabeth will, by her own belief system, be obligated to welcome her great-grandchild into the castle, nay, welcome him/her with open arms and prepare for the eventual reign of a Gay monarch and their spouse. This modern royal couple will no doubt attempt to have children in some way. Who knows, maybe by then gender and sexuality will be of no concern whatsoever, and the freedom for men to physically have their own babies might be medically possible?

What a brave new world we are entering as Elizabeth inches nearer her exit from this world. However, when the queen is gone she will not have to worry about the issue, which is typical of 20th century British monarchs who often avoid controversy. She will be gone, and her legacy will take root and flourish. Certainly, a “brave, new world.”

Of course, in the past there were some English Kings who were certainly involved in homosexual relationships. But this is a far different circumstance than a British monarch fully accepting their heirs as future monarchs with their “wife” or  “husband” by their side. Can you imagine the royal tours across the world with the presentation of a Gay King and his spouse? Think it won’t happen? Readers, it must happen, if being Gay is naturally inborn and immutable.

The land of Shakespeare indeed…”What fools these mortals be.”

Grandpa Goes to Washington Tour: “I’ve Encountered Angels and Demons Along the Way!”

WARNING: This is NOT Your Usual Road Trip

In the first five days of Doug McIntyre’s 10 Day Road Trip to Washington, DC, he has encountered both angels and demons. In a phone interview yesterday, McIntyre told Voice of the Voiceless about some of his experiences so far.

“When I got into Dallas, I found an evening service to attend and it just happened to be a gay-affirming church. The pastor of the church must have saw my truck and assumed I was another anti-gay bigot, and condemned me three times during the service. So much for tolerance! He and Wayne Besen should really get together and write some more lies about me…heck, maybe MSNBC will bring them on! Networks such as MSNBC that use unreliable sources such as Besen need to reevaluate their policies for securing ethical and truthful commentators. Besen’s Truth Wins Out hate group is one of the biggest sources of lies available to the LGBT community, and it only adds more hatred towards former homosexuals. I wouldn’t be surprised if this pastor was ill-informed from the likes of Besen.”

Early this week, Dr. McIntyre rolled into Atlanta to meet with DL Foster and the Overcomer’s Network, and was shocked by the kindness of a complete stranger when he got into Georgia. “I was in a parking lot and a man introduced himself to me and then asked me to come to his shop in a couple of hours. When I arrived, he had designed two t-shirts for me for free and told me how great he thoGrandpa2ught my tour was and said he wanted to bless me! I have had amazing experiences like this every day. In every city I stop, I am encountering compassionate, God-fearing people who are just as outraged as me and concerned for their children and grand children.”

On Wednesday, Dr. McIntyre had a meeting with some former homosexuals in Charlotte, NC. “They shared their stories and told me about some of difficult experiences they have come out of,  and I offered them support and advice as they continued their journeys. They were all very much in support of what (we) are doing. These folks are an inspiration – they are so brave to not follow what the world says you should do, but are listening to their own consciences and taking a different path.”

A Military Perspective on Ex-Gays, SOCE Therapy, and Peaceful Co-Existence

During my short time in the military, I have learned a few very important lessons. One of these lessons is the need for a healthy amount of strength and confidence in defending what I think and believe in.

I have discovemilitaryred a type of respect in standing firm for my beliefs and convictions, while also allowing others to do the same. This is an approach greatly needed within the Ex-Gay community as we begin to make our voices heard. There has been much publicity surrounding Exodus International recently shutting their doors. Not only has Exodus International disbanded its network of ministries, but key members have gone on record apologizing for the “damage they had done to the gay community.”

To be fair, each person must listen to the dictates of their own conscience, and if these leaders feel they need to apologize, then by all means they should do so. However, we as ex-gays need to be careful in trying to right legitimate wrongs accrued during our culture war, that we don’t cross over into become passive and placating, and therefore shy away from difficult conflict where it is needed.

Gay political activists claim that Sexual Orientation Change Effort (SOCE) therapy causes harm to its clients. On the one hand, there may be some truth in that statement. Any kind of treatment, whether medical or psychological, comes with a measure of risk of side effects or all out failure. No treatment is guaranteed to be 100% effective, 100% of the time.  When it comes to SOCE, just like any other treatment, it is the responsibility of both the clinician and the patient to consider the options carefully, weigh the risks involved, and proceed with realistic expectations for treatment outcome.

The mental health profession has a long history of asserting a client’s right to self-determination, which is the right to determine the direction they want to take with their life, free from undue influence by their counselor or outside influences. Yes, SOCE may have potential negative outcomes, but it is the client’s right to accept the possibility of those outcomes.

We as ex-gays, friends and family of ex-gays, and/or mental health professionals need to step up and take a stand for those who wish to explore the options open to them. Our being gay or ex-gay does not infringe upon each others’ existence outside of the political arena, and people on both sides need to realize that we can support and defend our own civil rights without denying others’ civil rights. Should we accomplish this, we will be working towards a peaceful co-existence.

Censorship: Unstoppable

Tell Facebook to STOP Censoring Pro-Family and Conservative Messages

Dear Facebook,

CameronScreen-Shot-2013-07-18-at-9.32.05-PM-e1374197576164Your latest attempt to censor Kirk Cameron’s movie “Unstoppable” is another example of your bias and discrimination towards conservative and pro-family messages. Last Thursday night, Cameron posted on his Facebook page: “Calling all friends of Faith, Family, and Freedom! Facebook has officially ‘blocked’ me and you (and everyone else) from posting any link to my new movie at UnstoppableTheMovieDOTcom, labeling the content as ‘abusive,’ ‘unsafe,’ and ‘spammy!’ I can’t even write the real link here, or Facebook would block this post too!!”

Cameron received a message from Facebook telling him the website’s content was labeled as “abuse” and “unsafe.” Yet, the film’s website does not contain any graphic photographs, video or profanity. “We have been officially shut down by Facebook and unable to get any response from them,” he said. “This is my most personal film about faith, hope, and love, and about why God allows bad things to happen to good people. What is ‘abusive’ or ‘unsafe’ about that?!”

Unstoppable, which is expected in theaters in the fall, aims to answer questions about suffering and recounts the personal experience of a Cameron friend whose son battled cancer. “I would understand if there was something truly unsafe about my stuff,” Cameron told Fox News. “But I would encourage people to watch the trailer. Do you find anything offensive about faith, hope and love in the time of a tragedy?”

In 2012, Cameron was criticized for calling homosexuality “unnatural,” “detrimental,” and “ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.” Since then, Cameron’s public statements and work has been highly scrutinized, now to the extent that non-controversial messages such as those seen in Unstoppable, are seemingly being censored in order to hurt the Christian filmmaker and supporter of traditional family values.

After an outpouring of support from hundreds of thousands of Cameron’s fans, Facebook lifted the block. But this isn’t the first time Facebook has censored conservative and/or pro-family messages:

  • In June 2013, Facebook blocked conservative columnist Todd Starnes Facebook status update: “I’m about as politically incorrect as you can get. I’m wearing an NRA ball cap, eating a Chick-fil-A sandwich, reading a Paula Deen cookbook and sipping a 20-ounce sweet tea while sitting in my Cracker Barrel rocking chair with the Gather Vocal Band singing ‘Jesus Saves’ on the stereo and a Gideon’s Bible in my pocket. Yes sir, I’m politically incorrect and happy as a june bug.”
  • In January 2013, the “Chicks on the Right” Facebook page was shut down after they posted a message criticizing the White House.  “Chicks on the Right,” a conservative website with more than 100,000 fans, reportedly received a notice to the group’s president that she would be locked out of not only her “Chicks on the Right” Facebook page, but her personal page as well. Facebook accused her of violating the company’s standards with one of her posts. Facebook later apologized for the incident.
  • In 2012, Facebook censored pro-life activists who posted an image of a pre-born baby aborted at eight weeks on their Facebook site. To add insult to injury, Facebook had earlier issued an apology to a pro-abortion site for taking down a post that offered explicit instructions for performing a do-it-yourself chemical abortion with the drug Misoprostol, used by doctors to induce labor in pregnant women. The Facebook officials backed up their apology by reposting the abortion instructions.
