U.K. Christian ministry loses bank accounts after gays’ ‘mob rule’ campaign

“Gay” used to mean happy and carefree, but there was nothing “gay” about the way homosexual activists targeted a Christian group in the United Kingdom that helps homosexuals who voluntarily seek counseling about their sexuality.

Core Issues Trust (CIT), a nonprofit Christian ministry in the UK, said it received death threats and had its financial accounts shut down along with other essential services after an online-mob-sabotage campaign by LGBTQ activists who falsely accused it of “conversion therapy,” or forcibly trying to turn homosexuals back into straight people. The U.K. is seeking to ban the practice.

The group, which actually supports men and women who voluntarily seek change in sexual preference and expression, was targeted at the end of June, according to FOX News. Barclays Bank notified CIT that it was closing the group’s accounts after several other companies took action against the group.

Mailchimp and Paypal suspended services to them, and both Facebook and Instagram removed content from their pages.

“A coordinated campaign has resulted in our ministry coming under immense pressure and key service providers canceling their services, action which we consider to be discriminatory,” Mike Davidson, CEO of CIT, said in a statement.

Jayne Ozanne, a homosexual evangelical Anglican leading the charge against conversion therapy in Britain, has tarred Davidson as being a “practicer and promoter of conversion therapy.”

Davidson rejects the label, saying it’s a ploy by LGBTQ activists intended to link counseling for gays to things like shock therapy and “corrective” rape that have long since been discredited and abandoned.

“Because the term speaks of talking therapies and counseling as ‘pseudo-science’ in association with these extremes, to be heard defending talking therapy and counseling for unwanted same-sex attractions is then taken to be a defense of the indefensible ‘Conversion Therapy’ label,” Davidson said. “We reject this accusatory term.”
