The “Not Gay” Scarfboi’s Ties to Lou Engle

Adam Hood’s two videos have gone viral throughout the web. In this video, Hood provides a bit more background to his life story. It turns out that Hood is associated with Morningstar House in the Portola district of San Francisco. He also works with the so-called “Justice House of Prayer,” the evangelical group which is often seen “witnessing” in the Castro near the Bank of America or on Harvey Milk Plaza. Engle says he sent his son to establish JHOP just a block off the Castro “where the homosexuals boast the dominion of darkness.”

It seems Adam is still searching for a group that will give him a new high. I really hope that Adam comes to realize one day soon that God has always loved him, as he was created.

Back to the video – Is he snapping his fingers?

I dunno…the story sounds pretty Mike Warnke, like he made it up to impress his new friends. I mean, Mafia witches?! Please.

Morningstar House?
Justice House of Prayer (JHOP)?

I suggest that he start a new group:
International House of Phruitcakes (IHOP)

Oh dear,

Scarfboi has another video of a “perpetual praise party” which featured some white rapper, an indie band whose guitarist wore a Burger King crown, some chick in a princess costume, and him wearing his gold lame scarf.

He does love his scarf.

I am beginning to wonder what is hidden underneath that scarf.

Warnke is the biggest liar to ever hit the Christian “ex-whatever” circles. He’s too stupid to even fit his lies into the timeline they were supposed to have happened in, claiming to be 2 and 3 places at the same time. Not to mention that he doesn’t know jack about occultism.

Somebody needs to monitor scarfboi’s meds before he has another major episode of teh crazy.

I just hope this pathetic queen really ISN’T gay, because he sure as hell gives the rest of us a bad name. But then I suspect he’s Lou Engles’ boitoi (he keeps him in ‘scarfs’). Seriously, he is just too pathetic for words, and I hope he seeks professional help some day soon.

On the Kinsey scale, this guy is 102.

I have to go back to something I mentioned a long time ago about ex gays and people who are SO public about it.

Being heterosexual doesn’t require so much reiteration, and PROPS like op sex spouses and kids. There is a quality about ex gays that screams TRYING TOO HARD!!!

I don’t even see how so many churches and organizations would want to hold up people like this as if it’s such an achievement to want to dodge social duress and threats to all that any citizen must have to be happy.
When all of those factors are at work to want to make a person hate being gay, then it’s not exactly something the ex gay came to in a blaze of enlightenment and precious love.

We’ve all pretty much seen what happens to someone’s body and face when they are obsessed with plastic surgery or whatever kind of excess of makeover.

It looks fake, it paralyzes real expressions and leaves SCARS. To say nothing of a lighter wallet and weeks of enduring pain.
The same kinds of people who have a dysphoria like that, can also have the same and endure the same in their effort to be heterosexual.

I don’t trust ex gays any more than a woman sporting silicone boobs that says ‘ their mine! I bought them!’

One can’t BUY heterosexuality. It takes NO practice to be straight, just as it takes no practice to be gay.
In between are stereotypes and caricatures of what either side thinks heteros or gay people are. And nothing authentic comes from it.

We either are or we aren’t. And heterosexual life is no guarantee you STILL won’t have serious problems with the relationship you’re trying to have for the world to see.

The ex gay industry sells out heterosexuals too. Makes us look healthy and especially expert on what sex, family and commitment is.
When, all around us, we know this isn’t true. But there are people kept from being able to more deeply analyze what’s going on behind the frozen smiles of the people of that industry.
And the hard sell of Christ, holiness and op sex relationships and marriage.

Don’t try and tell me the naugehyde you’re wearing is leather. Some of us DO know the difference. And it’s the naugehyde that eventually, and more easily, splits and gets destroyed after all.

I feel so sorry for this man. Yes, I know he is actively working against me and the one I hold dear, yet my heart aches for this poor lost sheep. He must hate himself so much.


June 24th, 2010

His first video was released on June 21st. In 3 days, as of now, it has 125,000 views. People are probably sending it to their friends as a great example of what an ex-gay looks like.

This guy is either of three things:

1) Dishonest
2) Bisexual
3) Both

I suspect #1, but I’m leaning toward #3.

I know adam well and we were berry close at one point. Lemme tell you all thAT ADAM hood is am honest person. A sweet hearted person. A God loving bible believing person. He’s got his understanding of what God wants and though you May not agree he has a right to express it. I am gay. I have had a legit experience that changed my understanding of how God feels about me and my sexuality. But not everyone is on the same page. Hell who knows I could be wrong. But God tell that “the greatest of these is love” right wrong or indiferant. Who are we to judge? For him he has the truth he lives. Maybe we all have our own truth?…

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
