Ex-gay Voices are indeed Silenced

Ex-gay movie 'Voices of the Silenced' was due to be shown at Vue Cinema Piccadilly Circus.

Ex-gay movie ‘Voices of the Silenced’ was due to be shown at Vue Cinema Piccadilly Circus.

A new Christian film about people who have walked away from the homosexual lifestyle will not screened in central London tonight, after a venue booking was cancelled, reports Premier Radio.

Producers hired a theatre at the Vue cinema on Piccadilly for a private screening tonight of ‘Voices of the Silenced’. But Vue Cinema bosses told them the event is being scrapped because it contradicts their ‘values’.

Six hundred people signed a petition urging the cinema chain to cancel the private showing of ‘Voices of the Silenced’. 125 guests had been due to attend the film, made by Core Issues Trust.  Here is their film trailer.

Therapists ‘demonised’

The homosexual website Pink News claimed, ‘Nearly every medical body in the world has disavowed gay cure therapy.’ What it does not say is that they did so not because of evidence but because of gay activists turning up at their conventions and screaming at them.

On the Core issues Trust website, Dr Mike Davidson writes: ‘The work of demonising any therapist supporting clients wanting to move away from any unwanted sexual attractions is almost complete. Without research evidence, … there is now no professional body willing to support client autonomy and professional intervention for those who refuse to accept homosexual feelings as normal. Only the American Psychological Association has been brave enough to admit that research has not been done which proves that such therapy is ipso facto harmful and ineffective.’

Move out of unwanted homosexual practice

Pink News goes on: ‘The documentary, which compares the treatment of Christian gay ‘cure’ therapists with the plight of Jewish slaves in Roman times, was said to challenge the “myth… that people are born gay”.’

PinkNews accused Core Issues Trust of advocating for a ‘gay cure’. But Dr Davidson told Premier: ‘We are not saying that folk (who) identify as gay are sick.

‘What we are about are the rights and freedoms that people need to have respected when they want to move out of unwanted homosexual or other sexual practises – and that’s what the film does.’

‘Voices of the Silenced: Experts, Evidences and Ideologies’ features the testimonies of 15 people from eight countries who have moved away from homosexual activity.

The Christian Legal Centre, which is supporting the Core Issues Trust’s screening, says it is considering filing an injunction at the High Court, as well as taking action against Vue Cinemas under the 2010 Equality Act.

Ex-Gay ‘Voices of the Silenced’ are silenced

CEO Andrea Minichiello Williams said: ‘Ironically, the actions of PinkNews and Vue cinema illustrate the point of the film. The Voices of the Silenced are, in fact, being silenced.’

Lucy Northmore, group PR manager for Vue International, said: ‘The way we work is basically that all event bookings come through and get booked regardless, and then when we get the full content and review. We can make the decision at any time.’

The cinema only decided to drop the screening yesterday. Core Issues made the booking in November, she said. She said ‘we received the content on the January 22′. Vue only dropped the film when Pink News made waves. They then denied that was anything to do with it.

‘To assume that it was reviewed in reaction to the story is incorrect,’ said Miss Northmore.

‘Wicked Practice’

Homosexual peer Guy Black - 'hateful'

Homosexual peer Guy Black – ‘hateful’

Homosexual conservative peer Lord Black of Brentwood told PinkNews: ‘It is appalling that propaganda for so-called “gay conversion therapy” should be being screened here in London.’ Turning morality on its head, he described such therapy as a ‘wicked practice’.

Guy Black went on to call for conversion therapy to be made illegal in the UK. He described the film, a gentle documentary, as a ‘hateful film, fuelling homophobia and prejudice’.

In a statement to PinkNews, lesbian peeress Baroness Barker also turned truth on its head.

People who preach gay conversion therapy are zealots who are prepared to cause great harm to LGBT people in order to perpetuate their warped view of the world,’ she ventured.

Core Issues Trust chief executive Mike Davidson made headlines when he appeared on Good Morning Britain with Piers Morgan.  The video is here.  Piers Morgan expressed himself outraged, as we should expect.  He told PinkNews his organisation was considering legal action against Vue.

Facebook video goes viral

Earlier this month, an ex-gay video on Facebook called for homosexuals to repent of their sexuality and seek healing.   It has attracted 1.5 million views. US evangelical Christian group Anchored North posted the video. Pink News called it ‘shocking’. It is entitled ‘Love is Love’ and features a rainbow flag thumbnail.

The film features a woman who claims she was freed from homosexuality because she turned to God. Anchored North said: ‘It’s not gay to straight. It’s lost to saved.’  The film is on Anchored North’s Facebook page here.

A battle is raging in the US at the moment. Nine states – New Jersey, California, Oregon, Vermont, Illinois, New Mexico, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Nevada and Washington DC all ban gay conversion therapy. Activists have tabled bills in another 16 states. The remaining 25 do not have any plans to stop it. Both Donald Trump and Mike Pence support such therapy.

Ex-gay Film wars

Film ‘luvvies’ predictably gushed over a recent film slamming ‘gay conversion therapy’. The ‘Miseducation of Cameron Post’, starring one Chloë Grace Moretz, was awarded the grand jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival.

On the other hand, critics hated a film abour ex-gay Michael Glatze, ‘I am Michael.’  Glatze was an ‘out’ activist who is now happily married.  The homosexual man Glatze ‘dumped’, Halifax (Nova Scotia) filmmaker Benjie Nycum made a further film ‘Michael Lost and Found’.  It revolves about meeting Glatze and his wife at the home in Wyoming. Significantly, Nycom accepts that Glatze is genuiningly ex-gay and heterosexual. It is fundamental to gay ideology that no-one can change. Ex-gays must be either still homosexual really, or they never were.

Redemption in Corinth

But the Bible says there were ex-gay people in Corinth. The Apsotle Paul lists active and passive homosexuals alongside other sinners in his first letter to the Corinthians:

1Co 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Nevertheless, he immediately goes on to speak of the power of Jesus Christ to forgive, justify, sabtify and wash clean:

1Co 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

To deny the ex-gay movement is to deny the Gospel.

  1. I watched the “interview” with Piers Morgan. What a disgrace. Mr Davidson conducted himself very well, in the face of severe provocation by Mr Morgan: what a nasty piece of work he is, who long ago sold his soul for worldy success: he’ll parrot the BBC PC view, pretending to be outraged at homophobia or whatever phobia is currently being “discussed”. People with views that oppose the prevailing PC orthodoxy are now routinely set up to be pilloried, insulted, interrupted, shouted at, baited etc. Jordan Peterson’s “interview” with Cathy Newman on Channel 4 News, now quite notorious, is another example. BBC’s Question Time, on the rare occasion that a true conservative/right-winger is let on (probably in error), is yet another, generally with the whole of the rest of the panel, generally left-wingers, and the audience, queuing up to have their shot at the bigot/racist/islamophobe/homophobe/sexist/misogynist etc etc etc. Its a mob mentality that bodes ill for our increasingly uncivilised society, which is seemingly now rejecting reason, in favour of sloganeering, as well as any semblance of morality. I understand that it is a feature of most decaying civilisations that homosexuality and licenciousness generally are promoted and even celebrated. Dissenters are shouted down as killjoys, bigots etc in the fashion to which we are increasingly becoming accustomed.

    The only leader standing against this is Trump. The hatred of the left for (small-“c”) conservatives (I don’t count the Conservative Party as being truly conservative, it long ago made it its aim to please the Guardian and its readers) and right-wingers is frightening. Imo, if Trump is taken out, it will be open season on conservative/right-wingers and Christians. Many leftists would gladly kill their opponents from what I can see. And they accuse US (conservative/right-wing Christians) of being “haters”: the irony and blindness is truly astonishing to my mind.

  2. God is sovereign; He will ensure that this ban leads to more publicity for the truth viz. that the Holy Spirit’s power is able to change the lives of people involved in unnatural perversions.

    (I wonder how many of your readers remember when jackboot Jacquie banned Geert Wilders from the UK and it led to him getting a massive publicity boost).

  3. Gosh, I agree with Mark that Piers Morgan was certainly not at his best in this interview ! I have recently seen him several times interviewing unlikely people, like brutal murderers imprisoned in the USA, and found him amazingly sympathetic and kindly. In this interview, he seems to have lost his temper completely, and his style is unacceptable, particularly considering that he is a professional and the man he is interviewing is not really fair game for such harsh treatment (like, say, Boris Johnson would be , on a different subject).

    The church portrayed is the kind which offers all kinds of extraordinary miracles, and they exist in a multiplicity of different denominations. There are places in London where I could show you a whole row of them. They satisfy a need, or a whole variety of needs.

  4. The root cause of all this is the total rejection of the Lord Jesus and the authority of God’s Word in Bible. Sin is rampant everywhere in our society fuelled by secularism introduced from cradle to the grave. The latest is the government are trying to take away the innocence of our youngest children in our primary schools with the teaching of sexual relationships, transgender, homosexuality and other corrupt stuff that they are too young to understand. Parents will not be able to withdraw their children from these lessons and teachers who disagree with this will not be able to opt out either. I think the Christian Institute have more information about this and how we can voice our concerns to those in Parliament.
    I have taught young people who have had sexuality identity issues. One young lad of 17 committed suicide because he couldn’t cope with his confused homosexual feelings. I was really upset about this. He was someone who had great potential. The devil sows confusion and these people young and old need support not condemnation and to know the Lord can restore them to how they were meant to be.
    All this shouting and anger by these homosexual organisations just reveal how angry Satan is but we know the Lord will have the last word. As Christians what is He asking us to do?

    1. The latest is the government are trying to take away the innocence of our youngest children in our primary schools with the teaching of sexual relationships, transgender, homosexuality and other corrupt stuff that they are too young to understand. Parents will not be able to withdraw their children from these lessons and teachers who disagree with this will not be able to opt out either. ”

      “Absolutely agree, they are starting younger and younger on sowing the seeds of immorality, confusion and debauchery from as early as possible.

      It’s got so bad, all the LGBT and all the other numbers of the alphabet that I can’t keep up with, that our children have had peers in school have a go at them for their innocent referring to someone as their obvious gender, as opposed to the gender they falsely claim to be. They are accused of being discriminatory for being confused about something that is in the minds of those making the claims and not reality and they are not being in any way discriminatory. People are so ready to jump down your throat and claim discrimination it’s a total breach of the rights of those outside this group.

      What is being taught in schools is vile. At the moment parents can still opt their children out, but that is of limited benefit because the topics of conversation among all those children who did take part in those ‘lessons’ are inflicted upon those who didn’t anyway. Children are talking about pure filth.

      Being homosexual seems to be like a fashion accessory at the moment, people in all the reality shows have OTT effeminate gay and transgender friends as if you are uncool not to. Promoting the rights of one group over and above another is not right, why are the gays fighting so hard for what they want to the detriment of others?

      1. It is child sexual abuse, you are right.

  5. Keep praying, and keep witnessing!

  6. Basically what the gay activists and anyone bowing to their pressure are doing, is committing positive discrimination. Since when did the rights of a particular group have more value than the rights of anyone outside the group?

    1. Welcome to this Brave New World.

      1. Welcome to the Ancient World, the beginnings of civilisation or the New Stone Age in fact .

        When farmers could produce a surplus to feed people in cities, groups such as rulers, priests, and valued craftsmen (particularly, in a later age, metalworkers) enjoyed rights with more value than the rights of anyone outside the group.

        1. We were reading the book of Job last night. It’s the oldest book of the Bible.
          Job 28:1 Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold where they fine it.
          Job 28:2 Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone.
          Metalworking is nothing new. It goes back to before the bronze age. (Incidentally, the King James Version translated the Hebrew n’chushah which means ‘copper’ as brass. It should read bronze. As in ‘Bronze Age’. Brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, was invented or discovered slightly later.)
          Interestingly, it’s the Bible which stresses people are all of equal value and enjoy exactly the same rights under the law:
          Deuteronomy 1:17 Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s …
          As our society reverts to paganism, certain groups, gays, for example, enjoy more rights than others under our discriminatory hate laws and aggravated offences.
          Welcome back not exactly to the Stone Age, but certainly to a time of lawlessness.

            Well, metals were not in use in Australia until Europeans turned up. The aboriginal Australians thought they were new.

            When it was the Stone Age in Europe, people were still using stone tools because the use of metals was still unknown, or (latterly) very rare.

            I think you will find that rulers in their palaces (of whom there are many example in the Bible) have always enjoyed more privileges than the poor man at the gate. I didn’t say that this was ethically acceptable, but in practice it is bound to happen to a certain extent.
