Someone yells at him. The whole ordeal has gay rights advocates outraged and demanding an investigation. Robin McHaelen , executive director of True Colors, an advocacy group for gay youths, said the video appeared abusive and she planned to report the incident to the Connecticut Department of Children and Families.
But a church official this week denied that the teenager was injured or that the church is prejudiced. I just don't agree with their lifestyle. McKinney claimed the boy is 18 and came to the church last year and collapsed on the floor during a service. She denied the church is prejudiced and says they took care of the youth.
McHaelin said her organization is aware of five cases in recent years in which youths in her program were threatened with exorcism. McHaelin said the boy told her staff that the church performed the ritual three times at his request. The boy has been engaging in risky behavior that she blames on the church's treatment, she said. McKinney said the youth went to the church last year and collapsed on the floor during a service. We just don't allow them to come in and continue to live that lifestyle," she said.
Robin McHaelen, who worked with the year-old boy at the center of the video in her position as executive director of True Colors Inc. She would not identify the teen. McHaelen said she doesn't think the church acted maliciously -- but that's part of her problem with the video. The boy is the fifth teen True Colors is aware of that has undergone an event like the one documented in the video.
But unlike the boy, not all the teens approached a church or religious organization. The event, McHaelen said, reflects a culture and society that doesn't believe a person can be both Christian and gay. McHaelen said she talked to the boy since the incident and said he's feeling very conflicted and confused in trying to reconcile who he is with his religion. McHaelen notified the Connecticut Department of Children and Families, as she's mandated to do in her position when she suspects abuse or neglect of a minor.
However, she told CNN the department will be looking into whether or not abuse or neglect occurred by the parents and family of the boy, not the church. The department declined to comment Thursday. Isaiah Webster, Director of Communications for the National Youth Advocacy Commission, said he was deeply saddened by the timing of the video and the accompanying uproar.
The so-called "Stonewall Riots" are believed by many to have kicked off the gay liberation movement. McHaelen said that as an advocacy group, she doesn't think True Colors can take any legal action against the church, and said she would rather engage in an open dialogue with its members.
