On February 10, 2013, after attending four sessions of the six given by ex-gay leader Kent Paris at Summit Church, Sparks, NV, I stood to make a 1:30 minute statement that I posted on my blog. I am confident Pastor Bond and Paris had already read it. I had two plain clothes policemen (that did NOT identify themselves to me) and three church security men on me immediately. I had only gotten my name out of my mouth. The man taping it, Mark, was approached from behind, kneed in the back of his knees (his knees that have been replaced and he is still in recovery, nice job gentlemen) to collapse him and pushed to a chair before being escorted out. A LONG and very complete article on the teachings of KENT PARIS and why they are damaging to LGBT people, esp. please read church leaders thinking of bringing him in: http://canyonwalkerconnections.com/ex... and a writing account of the event I was removed from: http://canyonwalkerconnections.com/sp...
Here was my pre-posted statement that got me evicted:
"Do you know the consequences of rejecting your gay youth as opposed to accepting them?
If parents with gay children were to follow the teachings and therapeutic tools offered by Kent Paris, your gay youth are EIGHT times more apt to attempt suicide than those gay youth who are accepted.
They may suffer depression SIX times more often than those who are accepted.
They are THREE times more likely to get involved in drug and alcohol abuse than those gay youth that are accepted.
They are THREE times more likely to contract HIV and/or STDs than accepted gay youth
This is research; this is scientific, peer reviewed research.
If you are the parent of a gay youth, when you leave here, stop on the way home and buy a package of razors, a bottle of whiskey, a hypodermic needle and a lifetime supply of antibiotics because that is the life you will more often impose on your gay child through your rejection and shaming.
This is what you will be doing to the child you have been charged to raise in the way they should go.
Do not try to force your child to be something they are not, something to your liking. You will not only be responsible for the effects on their mental and physical health, you will also, in all likelihood, push them from God."
LGBT kids that are in churches that reject who you are -- get online to gaychristian.net and find community and a way to stay connected to God. His people act pretty badly, but He is WONDERFUL!
