For the persons here in Jamaica in the anti gay lobby who I know read this blog regularly and are consistently pushing ex gay therapy line these last days and other related reparative therapy suggestions especially in light of the UTECH abuse matter, just remember you may get this happening if one attempts to enact the so called ex gay cure according to this report linked below and previous cases have shown many ex gay proponents are themselves "uncured" as it were and themselves having a whale of a time with clients and escorts secretly while publicly pretending to be "cured" of homosexual urges and tendencies.
How timely this story should come as only yesterday on Love101FM our main religious radio station was a discussion on a morning show with the hosts of the recent anti buggery, anti homosexual, sexual purity march which I covered on this blog as well. Here is the audio from that discussion, at first I thought the usual suspects would be on as in Shirley Richards and or Dr Wayne West but they seem to have been taking a back seat and allowing the younger pundits to take the lead with the paranoia and fear about homosexuality and relegating the orientation to just being a lifestyle, the UTECH abuse matter also came up for mention .
On Sunday night Ryan Jay Muehlhauser, the 55-year-old pastor of Lakeside Christian Church, was arrested and later charged with eight felony counts of criminal sexual conduct.
The allegations are that Pastor Muehlhauser assaulted two men at least eight times while counseling them about their sexual orientation.
"To seek comfort and advice and to help address the pain they were experiencing only to have them experience a more horrific type of pain, sadness," Isanti County Attorney Jeffrey Edblad said of the case his team will prosecute.
Investigators say Victim #1, referred to in charging documents as ABC, told police about the assaults last Friday.
The victim claimed he met Muehlhauser two years ago at an event held by Outpost Ministries.
On its website, Outpost Ministries says it works with men and women trying to break away from the gay lifestyle.
Victim #1 said in counseling sessions Muehlhauser "blessed" him by cupping his genitals outside of his clothing several times and that Muehlhauser asked the victim to arouse himself in front of him and called it, the victim said, "spiritual strength."
The victim also reported that Muehlhauser would have him strip naked for more "spiritual guidance" and have him masturbate while Muehlhauser prayed over him.
These allegations span more than two years time, a fact not lost on Edblad.
"You have a defendant who spends a significant amount of time working with and grooming victims, these are often cases that take place over a period of months and years. They don't happen in a vacuum," Edblad said.
Victim #2, referred to as XYZ in court papers, reported similar activities and said that Muehlhauser told him if people found out about any of it they would "lose everything."
Muehlhauser is not in custody and did not wish to comment on the allegations.
Meanwhile earlier this year an undercover/hidden camera investigation by In The Life Media showed the following:
John Becker is an activist who investigates anti-gay religious extremists. IN THE LIFE follows Becker into the Bachmann clinic in Minnesota where he discovers the ongoing practice of debunked reparative therapies.
Hope we learn from all this.
Peace and tolerance
