The Christian book world seems to be filling with gay Christian memoirs.  First there was the disappointing and depressing Vicky Beeching’s ‘Undivided’.    This was followed by Jackie Perry’s well written and refreshingly biblical  Gay Girl, Good God . Then we went downhill again with  Jayne Ozanne’s  Just Love – Now we come to David Bennet’s newly released book, War of Loves.  The self-description summarises it well:  David Bennett … Continue reading A War of Loves -David Bennett

Jayne Ozanne – Just Love – A Journey of Self-Acceptance (and ITV on Conversion Therapy)

ITV news is at it again.  Presenting a one-sided piece of ‘news’ which is in reality propaganda – with no attempt at any kind of balance.   Look at the video  in the link which treats those who believe that someone might change their sexuality (something which has demonstrably happened) as being almost equivalent to terrorists – or at the very least heretics against the new … Continue reading Jayne Ozanne – Just Love – A Journey of Self-Acceptance (and ITV on Conversion Therapy)
