Just when I thought the world was full up with crazy, this comes along:

http://www.gaystarnews.com/article/p...s-getting-them-stroke-horses201212

"Pastor 'cures' gay teens by getting them to stroke horses

An American church is promising gay men they will be cured of their homosexuality if they stroke horses.

The Cowboy Church of Virginia, led by chief pastor Raymond Bell, believes homosexuality and other ‘addictions’ can be cured by Equine Assisted Psychotherapy."


Yeh, right. What I find most offensive is the Pastor's comment:

"‘Homosexuality is actually a type of addiction. It is not “curable” as a disease because it is a “choice driven” by the person.’

It was never 'a choice" by me and I am always astonished that any straight person can claim to know what it is to be gay.

So - how does he know?

There ´ya go...

Can you really call these people, whose mind is way out there in the fringe, somewhere, "Church?"'? "Pastor?"

This church has as much credibility as this one:

I'm not sure that I thank you for that, but you did warn me. They made a movie - a documentary - about it, after the event:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0l1Z3sZCf4

It was highly praised at Sundance.

Best line yet!

I'm passingly familiar with the Cowboy Church, and on the scale of "Weird Churches in the South" they hardly rate a mention... but then the Snake Handlers (yes, they really do exist) have set the weird Southern church bar pretty high.

the Snake Handlers

There are three branches of Church Of God. Snake handlers are one branch. I belong to another. Writhing and lurching on the church floor is the other. Yes, they do exist.

Well, I snoped around and couldn't find anything so I'm going with: "This is true."

Holy cow...er...horse...er...

This pastor really needs to stop horsing around.
After all, what is a bunch of horseplay going to do to help cure homosexuality?
Perhaps all the girls in his congregation are horse-faced?

(OK, I'll stop now.)

That was horrible, but not the "Mr. Hands" in question.
