Oh no... we here at Liberty Christian Ministries Inc don't claim to cure gays we just 'pray the gay away'... Liberty Christian Ministries Inc didn't let down Shaun...it's as Haydn Sennitt says ..."it was Shaun's own failure to overcome his sexuality!"
Haydn Sennitt at Liberty Christian Ministries Inc responds to The Age and The Herald's articles about gay cures. Haydn states that Shaun’s story about Liberty Christian Ministries Inc's inability to help Shaun was Shaun's fault and it was only ONE persons story!
And Haydn your story is only ONE person's story too. It's a story of a gay man who desperately wanted a wife and so he pestered his friend to introduce him to his sister in Korea who spoke limited English... and then told everyone it was the work of the Holy Spirit, who contributed to the one off miracle of marriage, young children and a constant battle against same-sex attraction.
Haydn uses the word 'transformation' instead of 'cure' and says it's not semantics... that's because Liberty Christian Ministries Inc uses the transforming power of the Holy Spirit through prayer, to transform same - sex attracted into heterosexuals, who continue to battle same-sex attraction. This is different to being cured of same-sex feelings.
Haydn explains that change is entirely voluntary but fails to mention that Liberty Christian ministries Inc is a by-product of the exploitation of innocent people by Christian fundamentalists.
Haydn expresses concern about the reporter wanting to undermine Chris Keane because he asked to interview him. Chris Keane, an unqualified LCMI health professional, ran groups for gays who were trying to overcome their same-sex attraction, and edited a book that was published under the name of Liberty Christian Ministries Inc. Haydn, like some other Sydney Anglicans, has difficulty seeing the virtue in accountability.
Haydn as a 'transformed homosexual', criticises Anthony Venn- Brown and psychologist Paul Martin for speaking out against the psychological damage done by ex-gay ministries... ex-gay ministries meddling with people's identity and run by unqualified medical personnel. Instead, Haydn explains that Venn-Brown and Martin were unable to last the distance in overcoming their same-sex attractions!
Finally, Haydn tries to hide the direct association between Liberty Christian Ministries Inc and Sydney Anglicans, eventhough Moore College lecturer, David Petersen founded LCMI, Archbishop Peter Jensen was part of the ethics committee, and Sydney Anglicans Bishop Glenn Davies and Tony Payne contributed to the book "What Some of You Were".
