Release Of 'Gay Treatment' Book Cancelled

Written by 

Eileen-Mohr

A few weeks ago, I had spoken to you about an author, Marion Heath, who had plan to release her book, Where is your brother?, which preaches the fact that Jesus can cure homosexuality, her publisher (pictured) decided to cancel it because LGBT activists plan to protest.

A protest will take place Saturday for the launch of the book such as it was announced on Internet qualifying the protest of “peaceful”.

Mrs. Mohr as for it declared that it was an “attack on free speech”. (why that should be only for you, don't we have the right to demonstrate?)

“It’s a novel, it’s fiction and it isn’t offensive because a lot of these men have been corrupted and led astray into their lifestyle,” she said.

“I think they are of course misguided in protesting because what they don’t like is the idea Jesus can heal people of their homosexuality – but it is actually possible.”

As said David Allison of OutRage!: “Frankly, this is the latest of a number of books written by people who can’t get it into their thick skulls that being gay is not an illness, an ailment or something to cure.

“Christians in particular are worried as science moves towards seeing being gay as a genetic thing – they are running out of ammunition.

“If science says this, Christians cannot say ‘you are evil’ because it’s something you’re born with, like your skin colour.

“It’s just nonsense. The book will have its moment of fame and then disappear into the remainder shelves in the bookshop.

“Most people have finally got the message that being gay is like having blue eyes or brown hair – it’s something you can’t change.”
