I used to think closeted gays were the worst, but these, "ex-gays" openly crawl back in the closet and then expect everyone else to do the same.

Bennett is the president of Stephen Bennett Ministries (SBM), which is based in Connecticut and described as "evangelistic, educational, exhortational, and encouraging Christian ministry dedicated to ministering to homosexual-identifying men and women who are seeking change," according to its website.

Anyone with a brain will recognize that Stephen Bennett is bi-sexual.

He just happens to be fulfilling his needs at the moment with a woman.

He also thinks he found a new friendship with homophobes and he is trying to hang with what he believes to be the cool group.

Stephen is the one who is operating without a brain.

Indeed. And that's exactly what these "ex gay" people are doing... RE-closeting themselves. They run the gamut of bizarre behavior because of SHAME and DENIAL. They cannot perceive the world in a way that allows them to just be who they are without crippling shame, so they invent completely false identities for themselves in order to sheild themselves from that crippling shame and self-loathing.

Anyone with a brain? I think he means anyone who has been brain WASHED to believe that being gay is something to be so profoundly ashamed of that they MUST become someone else in order to survive.

This man needs some REAL therapy to try to undo some of the damage done by religious quacks who forced him in the direction of disassociative identity disorder, among other psychosis and neurosis. He is sick and has been given MORE POISON to "cure" him.

He lacks standing to make that claim, imo.

How long until he's caught in some inappropriate behavior of a closety sexual nature involving struggling members of his flock (having counselees strip or discuss their homosexual fantasies at length or re enact some sexual incident from their past as part of "ministering" or via a "laying on of hands")?
