I sent this to the “Christian” ministry that the group is run by. You can read their so called ideals here:
And send them angry email, snail mail, and phone calls here.
The email I sent them:
I read through your little blurb about your ministry and how it only preaches that homosexuality is sinful and that you do not advocate nor suggest that they be repressed in any way. I am going to have to call this a blatant lie after seeing the presentation of Junkyard Prophet gave at the Ohio school in its whole. The presentation in itself shows that you are out to create a culture that will repress any one that falls outside your narrow minded Christian “norms”.
An example: During the presentation the presenter cited several states and what the old prision sentances for homosexuality were in those states when it was miss-understood and wrongly punished. By doing this he is suggesting that gays should be locked up and er go should be repressed.
I respect your right to practice your religion. It is your right. But you don’t have the right force it on others. Most of all on a captive audience of teens going through one of the most turbulent and confusing times in their lives. If they had come to your ministry willingly fine. But they didn’t so see the next paragraph.
Religion is like having a penis. It is perfectly ok to have one but you shouldnt wave it around in public or try and shove it down the throats of underage and or unwilling citzenry.
Some final thoughts on religion. All the classical monotheistic religions have great stories that impart wisdom, life lessons or moral ideals. This is all they are though. Really great stories used to teach an immature human race to try and treat each other better. It has taken a very long time but we are slowly getting the idea. The idea that any of the magicy GOD power stuff really happens is … well just silly.
The very idea that GOD the very creator of the universe and everything in it is so utterly concerned over if some one little person on this one little planet is gay or not is narcissistic vanity in the extreme. Is there a GOD maybe but I don’t think he is so concerned with one little planet. This idea that we are all he is concerned with is the frail human ego unwilling to admit just how really really tiny we are in the vastness of the entire universe. A vain attempt to rationalize a hard existence that may or may not be for nothing. In the end though Humanity has been around alot longer than monotheism and it will be around despite it as well.
People who need and outside supernatural force to be happy and complete are the ones who are truly empty. If you need a supernatural “parent” to tell you what is wrong and what is right and what to belive then you are a little more than an empty child. Immature and needing to be guided and told to behave or be punished. They are a spiritual infant of sorts.
Those of us who realized that all the answers we will ever need lie with in ourselves in our own hearts stand tall as spiritual adults. Full developed and able to make our own moral decisions. We know right from wrong and we make our choices with the certainty of that knowledge.
So in a sense you need to grow up. Realize there is one and only one sin. Hurting your fellow man in any way. Unfortunatly your group seems to do this with its very existance.
Night night children. Don’t let your raging fear of mortality bite.
