    (AgapePress) - Christian ministry leader and former homosexual Stephen Bennett says he isn't surprised that Episcopal Bishop V. Gene Robinson, the Anglican Communion's first openly homosexual priest to be consecrated as a bishop, has checked himself into an alcohol rehabilitation facility. The 58-year-old Robinson was confirmed as the ninth Bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire in 2003, a move that generated heated debate and ongoing schism both in the Episcopal Church USA and in the worldwide Anglican Communion. According to a Wikipedia article, the Kentucky-born bishop married a woman in 1972, but publicly acknowledged his homosexuality after having two...

    Stephen Bennett, Host of Straight Talk Radio, a national daily half-hour conservative talk show, said this time Hollywood has gone way too far. "Hollywood has sunk to an all-time moral low. I guess 2006 will be known as 'The Year of the Homosexual' in Hollywood. With 'Brokeback Mountain,' 'TransAmerica' and 'Capote' winning several major 'gender-bender' Golden Globes - Hollywood is no doubt 'out' on a mission to 'homosexualize' America," said Stephen. Bennett, a former homosexual of 11 years along with his wife and co-host Irene, led the charge in sounding the alarm nationally on "Brokeback Mountain" upon its release this...

    This past weekend, a new law legalizing homosexual civil unions took effect in Connecticut. But a former homosexual who now helps those wanting to overcome same-sex attractions says there is nothing civil about the Constitution State's new law. Stephen Bennett was active in the homosexual lifestyle for more than a decade before leaving that lifestyle in 1992. Now he runs Stephen Bennett Ministries (SBM), a Christ-centered organization that helps educate the public on the truth about homosexuality while it offers help and hope to those seeking freedom from unwanted homosexual attractions. Bennett says while all human beings deserve to be...

    Day in and day out, America is getting bombarded with 'pro-gay' propaganda. It's relentless. You can't open a newspaper or magazine, listen to the radio, or turn on the television without someone, somewhere pounding the 'glories of gayness' into your brain. Stories that would never have aired or have been published twenty years ago are now common place. 'Homosexual Male Couple Proud Parents of Quadruplets.' 'Rosie and Gal Pal Kelly Expecting.' 'Male Gay Couple Crowned King and Queen of High School Prom.' What once was considered a deviant perversion, is now politically correct -- and woe to those who oppose...

His wife and two children also are in the photo, which carries the caption, "Wonderful husband. Loving father. Former homosexual. Jesus Christ changes lives." The billboard is part...

    In the past several days, the media have descended on Massachusetts like a flock of vultures on a wounded prey. The scenes inside and outside the Statehouse are described by many as "surreal." With the thousands of people and hundreds of cameras on Beacon Hill, the legislators say they have never seen or experienced anything like this before. The hoopla, of course, is about "gay" marriage. One of the greatest battles for America's future right now is being waged in Massachusetts – an outcome that will affect and possibly change our entire nation forever. Simply put, this battle is about...
