Exodus, movement of Jah people, oh yeah / Open your eyes and let me tell you this / Men and people will fight ya down
I’m doing research on religion and religious grassroots movements in the USA for my chapter on There Will Be Blood, and some of the stuff I’m reading is so utterly idiotic, offensive, and loopy that it makes the material I came across during work on 9/11 conspiracy theory documentaries look like The Complete Works of Shakespeare.
For instance, this is what Exodus International is all about:
“Are you struggling with unwanted same-sex attractions?* Maybe you have lived as a homosexual for a long time, but now are looking for a way out. You have come to the right place! For thirty years, Exodus International has offered hope and help to people seeking freedom from homosexuality*. We believe and we have seen in thousands of lives that this freedom is possible through the power of God working in our hearts and minds.
The bottom line - you don’t have to be gay**! You can lead a life of fulfillment and holiness as God intended, a life far better than what you have experienced so far.”
*my bold - as in, “WTF???”
**their bold - as in, “FUCK YEAH, you DON’T HAVE TO!”
