A charismatic black Connecticut church is under investigation by the Connecticut Department of Children and Families after posting a controversial video on YouTube which shows members performing an exorcism of a gay teen's "homosexual demons.
The disturbing video shows leaders of the Bridgeport-based, non-denominational Manifested Glory Ministries in a violent scene reminiscent of The Exorcist. "Prophet" Patricia McKinney is seen screaming at a 16-year-old boy and demanding "homosexual demons" to leave. The video—since taken down on YouTube by the church—"continues for 20 minutes with the boy in a near seizure, even vomiting." The so-called "prophet" yells at the teen: "Right now in the name of Jesus, I call the homosexuality, right now in the name of Jesus."
FOX 61 reported on the video last night. "Prophet Patricia McKinney and her husband, church overseer Kelvin McKinney have a weekly radio show. She wasn't much interested in talking, telling Fox 61's Laurie Perez, 'Don't be following, I'm telling you no.' The only hint of a comment was her saying the ritual shown in the video is just one part of their ministry."
AFTER THE JUMP, via Rod 2.0 reader Jared (Twitter: @Jardoism), watch the disturbing FOX 61 report of where a gay teen, who is more than three times likely to attempt suicide than his straight peers, is subjected to a medieval ritual. Oh and please ask "Prophet" McKinney to cite the exact scripture where Jesus exorcised homosexual "demons" from children. <<crickets>>
