I'm sure you all remember former gay activist and Venus magazine publisher Charlene Cothran's story. Once a lesbian now a reformed heterosexual...stop laughing, she really believes she's straight! She made a controversial appearance on the religious-themed program 700 Club and continued to spread her false message of change, meanwhile becoming the poster girl for the extremist christian right wing.

A group af activists in Atlanta got together and produced a wonderful video response to the 700 Club broadcast. Check out both videos above.

I got a question- Charlene was at a gay pride event, just like you Darian this past weekend, and she said,"as far as I can see, beautiful people, men with men, women with women, and a shame fell over me and God said that this is the road to destruction."

Now, no one approached her, she has been an activist for decades, no one touched her and she was among thousands of gays when God spoke to her.

Why do you think this conviction of her spirit came down upon her? This sounds a lot like the story of the Apostle Paul when God called him out from persecuting Christians in Rome.

I don't see Charlene damaging anyone or causing hate to be spewed in the gay community. She is now advocating truth. I guess when you seek the truth and speak the truth, those gay activists had to stand up to stop the truth from being revealed.

As I stated many times before, and I concur with Charlene, this is a spiritual war you have no clue about! Until you come to the broken place in the presence of God, you'll never know what that truth is. But God still touch hearts and speak to us; I'm glad Charlene LISTENED AND OBEYED!

A spiritual warfare I have no clue about? I find it hilarious that you think you are the only person that has a direct line to God. Religious zealots like you are dangerous.

I never said I have a direct line with God and I'm not a religious fanatic. I can say, people are waking up to truth...and gays hate it.

Oh, let me ask this question- Why do you think the gay activists felt obligated to respond with a video to Charlene's clip on the 700 club? If gays felt "secure" in their "natural" sexuality, then they wouldn't feel any threat by Charlene's interview. Charlene never bashed any gay person in her clip; she simply spoke of her life and her ordeal.

If you sit back and watch the tone of both clips, I find Charlene's have genuine love and freedom than the second clip from the gay activist group.

I wonder why gays don't embrace Charlene with the same love they try to force everyone else to express.

@Captain: The activists responded to Charlene Cothran's interview because she spreading misinformation that anyone who is gay can change and become straight, and that those who have embraced being gay are inherently unhappy, depressed etc,. (Mind you Charlene never confirmed that she was straight, only that she was celibate.)

Maybe the fact Ms. Cothran was so heavily involved in activist work and social events and not as involved in having a spiritual life was what lead her to feel unfulfilled, not being a lesbian.

If you think that Charlene isn't hurting anyone go over to clay cane's site and read the interview he did with him. I'm sure you'll find some way to rationalize her rhetoric.
