Gay Man Cries Out Bitterly As Church Burns Out The Spirit Of Homosexuality (Photos)
Alot of Nigerian parent whom are very conservative in nature would do anything even though extreme to pray away “Queerness” from their gay children. Some lgbt children sometime go through conversion therapy, some would have to be subjected to traumatising experience such as being flogged, beaten, starved or at extreme cases disowned from their families.
In the recently post that has sparked alot of attention from the online community. In a new post by a Facebook user, name undisclosed,
He said last night he was taken by his family to burn out the spirit of homo sexuality from him but what he found there was a different story.
He was told to dance to a song as candles were put on his head to burn and melt. He wrote “Last night my family took me to a church in an attempt to burn out the “spirit” of homosexuality from me.”
This is one of thousand of occurrences where a lot of vulnerable homosexuals are made to undergo all sort of conversion therapy to pray and clean away the gay. Conversion therapy is the pseudo scientific practice of trying to change an individual’s sexual orientation from homosexual or bisexual to heterosexual using psychological or spiritual interventions.
There is virtually no reliable evidence that sexual orientation can be changed and medical bodies warn that conversion therapy practices are ineffective and potentially harmful.
Nevertheless, advocates and proponents do provide anecdotal reports of people who claim some degree of success in becoming heterosexual.
Medical, scientific, and government organizations in the United States and United Kingdom have expressed concern over the validity, efficacy and ethics of conversion therapy.Various jurisdictions in Asia, Europe, Oceania, and the Americas have passed laws against conversion therapy.
What are you thoughts on this? Is it fair that his parent had to go this extreme to save their child? Kindly leave a comment
