For a little more than a year Jeffrey McCall has been holding poorly attended pray-your-gay-away rallies that get an outsized amount of attention from the religious right. McCall, an otherwise unemployed ne’er-do-well got religion and has seemingly turned it into an occupation. His enterprise might be financed by a California cult; Bethel Church.

I love reading about these little colloquies:

I was surprised and wanting to know who these eunuchs were: these born that way from their mother’s womb. I started seeking the Lord on the topic, and He showed me what this meant. The Lord spoke to my heart that eunuchs born that way are those who were set apart by God from the womb to minister to God.

Jeffrey McCall being Jeffrey McCall, the intent had to change:

Then the Lord shared with me revelation of where they are today. The Lord spoke to me again, saying, “Many eunuchs are trapped in the LGBTQ community.” He showed me that not all in the LGBTQ community are born eunuchs, but that many eunuchs are trapped in those lifestyles under deception from the enemy. I couldn’t believe it. Here was this ancient group of people the Lord had talked about all throughout His Word, and now, even in this time, they are among us, but they were hidden.

It seems to me that, if you are going to claim to speak for a deity, you should do so more eloquently. Furthermore, the “revealed word” should not oddly correlate with your agenda.

McCall gets more arcane. It is always amusing when they brush over the fact that Trump is a pathological liar and sociopath:

Johnathan [sic] Cahn was on a show talking about president Trump. Cahn stated that President Trump had a Jehu anointing. It started making even more sense! … It was now the right time for the true eunuchs to rise up out of bondage and overthrow Jezebel, because Jehu anointing had been released!

I don’t think that “released” is the correct term. According to another religious crackpot:

King Jehu, the tenth king of Israel, was raised to power by God’s sovereignty for the specific purpose of exterminating wicked King Ahab’s heirs, as Elijah had prophesied following the scandal of Naboth’s vineyard (1 Kings 21). Upon being anointed, Jehu immediately took off with a company of men to carry out his God-ordained commission.

So let me see if I get this. The deity was so pissed off at Ahab for instituting the religion of Baal in Israel (due to the influence of Ahab’s wife, Jezebel) that he ordered Ahab’s innocent children to be killed. “Smote?” Ahab, by the way, put out a hit on the owner of that vineyard so that he could steal it. Long story.

Returning to Mr. McCall and his self-serving bullshit:

In my own life, I was trapped in homosexual, and later, transgender, identity. I was actually diagnosed with gender dysphoria by [sic] medical community. After my encounter with God, I left everything behind, including my old identity as Scarlet, to follow Jesus Christ. Once I was saved, the Lord laid it on my heart to share my testimony and lead others to Christ Jesus. And He opened amazing opportunities to share my testimony. While in Washington, D.C., sharing my testimony, an idea came to me to start the Freedom Marches, where many would gather to share their testimonies about leaving LGBTQ lives to follow Jesus Christ. After the testimonies, I wanted to publicly march in the streets of whatever city we would be in. The Scripture God gave me for this was Colossians 2:15 (NIV): “And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.”

That Bible quote is interestingly selective because Colossians 2:13 stresses the impropriety of not being circumcised. Wanna bet McCall is uncut? Eventually Paul changed the rules so that Christian converts (in the Near East) could avoid painful surgery.

McCall cannot keep his shit straight because the May, 2018 event in DC was a so-called Freedom March. It was not exactly a blazing success either:

I count fewer than two dozen people

By the way, the featured speaker was Elizabeth Johnston AKA the Activist Mommy. Luis Javier Ruiz who claims to be a survivor of the June 2016 massacre at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando where 49 people were murdered, also made an appearance.

“Freedom” means not pretending to be someone you are not in order to appease religious extremists!
