Daren, Andrew, and Arthur discuss this history around the JONAH case, which is the precedent setting ‘Conversion Therapy Fraud’ case in New Jersey. A travesty of justice and blatant bias in the courts.
Bible News Radio host Stacy Lynn Harp interviews Daren Mehl of Voice of the Voiceless. Voice of the Voiceless is a non-profit organization whose mission is to defend the rights of people who are virtually never given a voice in the public square, and — in fact — often told that they don’t exist or are lying: Former homosexuals, individuals that have unwanted same-sex attraction, and the families of these truly marginalized people.
Daren Mehl and Derek Paul review the coming out narratives provided by Nicole Serrano and reflect on their own journey of being healed from same sex attractions by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
Former “Ex-Christian” Nicole Serrano comes out as a lesbian in a big push by major media on Thursday. A coordinated PRIDE event to shame the church, the PRO LGBTQ media is using Nicole’s story to push the church harder into the affirming of sin, redefining love, and redefining holiness and righteousness.
Daren and Derek review Nicole’s coming out stories as seen on Facebook and then read an article where she was interviewed. Daren is a ex-gay Christian. He once lived as a gay Christian, though the Holy Spirit brought him out of that and he is now married and has no desire for sodomy or sexual attractions toward men, he has been married for 16 years. Derek is a non-gay, that is he had same sex attractions but never acted out. The Holy Spirit also worked in him to heal his brokenness in this area and he too is now married and has a thriving family.
The insights Daren and Derek bring as people who have been in this journey and come out of the LGBTQ entrapment have a lot of insights to share about her story. While this is a longer episode at 90 minutes, we believe the insights gained will be quite beneficial to you.

Voice of the Voiceless President Daren Mehl speaks at the Christian Politics and Religion event about the global attack on the Christian faith via the LGBTQ agenda and how we can respond in love, truth, and speak of the power of Jesus Christ to save and transform. Thank you to Dan Hall Ministries for this opportunity.

A common trope heard is that LGBTQ rights are necessary to prevent suicide, or that laws called ‘conversion therapy bans’ must be passed to prevent talk therapy and pastoral care (‘conversion therapy’) which is supposedly leading the LGBTQ identified individual to suicide.
SAFE-T is the broad, professional term for any type of change therapy that is conducted by licensed, trained professional therapists.
SAFE-T means sexual attraction fluidity exploration in therapy.
In the current politicized climate concerning professional therapies that allow sexual attraction fluidity exploration (SAFE-T), meaningful dialogue between psychotherapists who support and oppose change oriented goals is quite rare. Also rare is a meaningful and fair dialog concerning homosexuality and change between professional media, social media, court justices, politicians, educators, and people of faith. Ethics and unbiased principles of communication are essential to the growing diversity of those in disagreement on these issues.
But is talk therapy or pastoral care really leading them to suicide? Sexual Orientation Change Efforts (SOCE) is what talk therapy and pastoral care are categorized as when someone seeks help to align their orientation to their faith, or in an attempt to explore their heterosexual potential while being homosexually attracted.
The most quoted research comes from the LGBTQ Lobby ally Williams Institute of Berkley. A research arm of the LGBTQ lobby. Their research apparently supports the idea that most LGBTQ identified individuals that have done SOCE also experienced suicide thoughts. However, their report is intentionally misleading and promoting their suicide narrative by conflating the facts. They conflated anyone who had tried SOCE with anyone who ever had suicidal thoughts. I use the word conflate because in reality those people who had thoughts of suicide BEFORE SOCE were also included! Logically someone isn’t suicidal from an event they hadn’t yet experienced, yet that is how the data was grouped and reported on to create the suicide narrative.
When the data is analyzed honestly to account for WHEN suicidal thoughts and SOCE occurred, removing those who were suicidal BEFORE SOCE, unsurprisingly, the data showed that SOCE actually helped lower suicidal thoughts among the LGBTQ identified in the report.
The truth is out there. The LGBTQ lobby has built a house of cards around this ‘conversion therapy’ and suicide narrative. We just have to seek the truth and speak the truth.
Watch this before the LGBTQ lobby demands YouTube take it down.
