Pastor 'cures' gay teens by getting them to stroke horses

The Cowboy Church of Virginia, led by chief pastor Raymond Bell, believes homosexuality and other ‘addictions’ can be cured by Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. Horse therapy, in the right hands, can be used to help overcome fears, develop communication skills, and is generally beneficial to mental health.

But Bell says the horses in his church, a cowboy ranch in the south, are part of teaching men to stop being gay and encourage them to be more masculine. ‘EAP can help any person who is living the homosexual lifestyle or involved in it in anyway,’ he told Gay Star News.

‘The first common misconception is that homosexuality is genetic, or hereditary, or as some say “born this way”. ‘Homosexuality is actually a type of addiction. It is not “curable” as a disease because it is a “choice driven” by the person.’ Bell said he uses EAP to identify how a person got ‘involved’ in homosexuality to begin with.

What is truly sad, is that despite the absurdity of this, there are going to be gay men who are lost and hurting and who will imagine that this clown has the answer that they've been looking for only to leave even more lost and hurting than they were before. Jesus, save us from some of your Christians.

Being around horses can be therapeutic for many, and are used in a variety of healing programs.

But, in my near 50 years, I have never heard of a single gay horse owner, trainer or rider turning heterosexual.

Could it be that this "cowboy healer " is utterly insane?

Hmmm ...strong possibility.

I remember what happened behind the stables when I was younger. Doesn't this sound like the best summer camp ever for gay youth?

Didn't they teach you in school that if you didn't bring enough for the rest of the class, you shouldn't have brought it at all? Don't know what you're on cupcake, but I'd suggest not taking a second trip and re-reading this post after you come back from the one you're off on.
