Review for The Gay Christian Network, Raleigh, NC, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

This organization is eerily similar to the same churches the protest against. From the outside they look like a safe-haven; a place where you can learn and grow in Christ while being open and honest about who you are without the fear of condemnation or judgment. However, once one becomes active within the community they find it is a terribly different story. You are severely restricted on your ability to share ideas if it goes against the general consensus and will become a target of threats and condemnation if you stand firm to what you believe in. Psychologically speaking this site is a very detrimental site to the recovery of those who are seeking help from it. I have several reasons for saying this. First; their idea of support is enabling those seeking support to continue to wallow in their problems while providing them with no more than half hearted, truly empty positive affirmations. However their guise of Christian is no more than that. In promoting the sovereignty of Christ on that site, along with faith in Him and the Word you place yourself at being ejected from the site. They will so hatefully condemn the heterosexual community for their lack of acceptance just to turn around and do the same to those who come to their site seeking fellowship w/other bible believing homosexuals. I would not donate to this site whatsoever as it is unfruitful; a fact that is evident from it's stagnation in development and technology in spite of it's decade in existence. Any homosexuals, or family members of homosexuals seeking spiritual support would be better going to Exodus International. While I do not believe with Exodus International's agenda to make everyone "ex-gay" their practices and faith are more consistent with Christs teaching and they do stand a better chance of inciting personal growth within those who reach out to them. --M.
