Video: They came, they saw, they took the wrong side in the 'culture war'

by Jeremy Hooper

Remember earlier this week when we told you about the students from Lincoln Christian College who chose to dedicate their Spring Break to the "mission" of converting gays? Yea, well after a week of fun and anti-Science, it's time for those kids and their leader, professional "ex-gay" Stephen Bennett, to part ways. Check out their "it's not good to be bi" goodbyes, which Stephen put on his site this A.M.:

We're still holding out great hope that these students will choose to learn other perspectives on this issue, like, say, the one that is based in fact, research, and scientific opinion rather than one-sided rhetoric. After all, college is all about experimentation. Here's hoping that much like this writer's collegiate proclivity for blacklights and skunk beer, these kids' anti-gayness will prove to be just a phase.

"God provided us with tools like Stephen."
You said it!

Well, I am going to pray for them, as they asked several times, but not in the ay they want I think.

I will be praying that God opens their eyes to the effects their "ministry" has on the people they are trying to "minister" to. Maybe they will take up a real problem then, such as the poor, or gang violence.
Amen

I just called them and dared them to come to Providence. Lets see if they take me up. I'd love to heckle the shit out of them.

Did anyone notice the sexual "tension" between Steven and the younger kid, Austin? Go back and review. Steven interrupts Austin's testimonial, and then Steven calls out for Austin at the very end. Austin then is seen watching Steven give accolades to his dog and his wife, bean (?); the look on Austin's face seems very troubled. I can relate; I had a "youth minister" with whom I had a serious infatuation with, and could sense his attraction to me. I find so much pain in Austin's eyes.

Its weird to watch their goodbyes video and realize that all of the kids had been the subjects of a scam. If they only knew Stephen Bennet's real bio...
