YouTube is a virtual storefront and the landlord don't want no shenanigans.

Do these types show up in Islam, Buddhism, Shinto etc., or is this a Christian specialty?

"His rise to prominence in the late 1990s coincided with the explosion of "miracle" programmes performed on national TV by various pastors.

TB Joshua was often mocked for lacking the finesse of his colleagues during "deliverance" sessions - an intense prayer that resembles exorcism."

Wow, it's apparently 1990s religion throwback day.

Back in the 90's, we actually had a couple who identified as "ex-gay" in our Pentecostal church. I think they were affiliated with the now-defunct Exodus International. I'm glad I haven't kept in contact with anyone from back then, but I am kind of curious about what happened with those two once everyone stopped pretending that 90's-era conversion therapy worked.

In a 27 April 2007 article published by Slate, Christopher Hitchens writes the following:

"If the followers of the prophet Muhammad hoped to put an end to any future "revelations" after the immaculate conception of the Koran, they reckoned without the founder of what is now one of the world's fastest-growing faiths. And they did not foresee (how could they, mammals as they were?) that the prophet of this ridiculous cult would model himself on theirs. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints -hereafter known as the Mormons- was founded by a gifted opportunist who, despite couching his text in openly plagiarized Christian terms, announced that "I shall be to this generation a new Muhammad" and adopted as his fighting slogan the words, which he thought he had learned from Islam, "Either the Al-Koran or the sword." He was too ignorant to know that if you use the word al you do not need another definite article, but then he did resemble Muhammad in being able only to make a borrowing out of other people's bibles."

Yeah, I could have phrased that better. It was a man who identified as "ex-gay" and a woman who identified as "ex-lesbian." And I don't know, maybe they were bisexual enough to have more than a perfunctory attraction. But I doubt it, and I'm not going to try to track them down to ask.

Some appeal to the gullible, others proselytize to the servile. This charlatan spews bullshiat, knowingly, then exploits those desperate enough to believe his verbal prolapsing. Other faiths have these 'educated prophets', but those listening know nothing other than to take what they're told as absolute proof. For some,it will cost them money & dignity, for others, it'll set them back millennia

The following video is the fastest example I could find and I make no specific criticism of any particular religion. I hold all faiths in the same regard- those that attest to be learned scholars of religious texts and therefore claim to be one of the few who have the intelligence to spread the true word of their god (forsaking all others) are either liars, conmen or in need of psychological help.

There were always a few "married" guys  in the gay bars. They had to be married for cover since the government didn't hire known gay people back then, because they could be blackmailed.

In twitter's early days Ashton Kutcher tweeted "I'm taking a shiat".
That tweet is the concise condensed message of every tweet before and since it was posted.
Yew go wade through shiat if yew want to.

Plenty of ex-gay people around (Dan Savage even has an acronym for one group: LUG) and plenty of ex-straight people around. The notion that sexual identity is fixed for life is a political one. However, that's not to say that it's possible to change at will, and it certainly isn't possible to change at somebody else's will.

edmo: Do these types show up in Islam, Buddhism, Shinto etc., or is this a Christian specialty?


They show up anywhere there's any sort of faith at all, from random shamanism clear up to the most organized world religions.  It's a grift niche, and to grifters those close in the dark.  They will act to fill the niche.  And grifters know no religion, ancestry, or any other factor.  They're everywhere there are humans.  You tend not to hear about it 'cause ethnocentrism (mostly) but there are fakes of all sorts.  As an example, fake Buddhist priests have been a problem since forever, getting up to the usual theft, moral strong-arming, and other bs since there's recorded history about it.

/no, not knocking Buddhism here - emphasis this kind of shiat is everywhere
//just one of the examples we have old records/accounts on it being a thing and a problem even then

Ugh, sorry - that's "glow in the dark."  First vaccine shot this afternoon, it's making me even more brain dead than usual with the typing.
