Homosexual Exorcism: There really are churches that practice this

UPDATE: I just found that Ruth Gledhill has posted this as well. On her blog I left a comment explaining that this stuck in my mind because of the complaints from the 1998 Lambeth Conference that some African Provinces of the Anglican Communion practice exorcism for homosexuality.

ORIGINAL POST: The Daily Mail Online has a disturbing video from Connecticut of a homosexual demon exorcism. This is what the GLBT activists say happens, and I didn't believe them. We need to be sure that nothing like this would ever happen in the new Anglican Church in North America.

From the article:
McKinney denied the ritual was an exorcism, describing it instead as a casting out of spirits. She said the church took care of the youth, providing him clothes.

'He was dressing like a woman and everything. And he didn't want to be like that,' McKinney said.

The teen had been in reform school for stealing but was eager to get out and go to the church to have what he thought were his demons driven out, Herrington said.

Exodus International, a Christian group that believes gays can become straight through prayer and counseling, does not advocate the church's approach, said Jeff Buchanan, director of church equipping.

On one side we see some churches doing this, and on the other side we will probably be seeing the Episcopal Bishop of California riding in the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade again this Sunday. I am hoping that the Anglican Church in North America will find the middle path.
