A former stripper turned ministry leader who claims she once considered becoming a lesbian has offered up a rather unusual explanation for homosexuality.
In an article for Charisma magazine, writer Cedric Harmon interviews a woman named Contessa Adams who claims that she was once possessed by sexual demons. Adams claims repeated attacks by a succubus -- defined in the article as a female sexual demon that traditionally assaults men -- made her contemplate becoming a lesbian.
"Anybody that has been attacked by them will tell you ... they're worried [that] they could not find that pleasure with mortal people," Adams, who claims to have "found Christ" in 1979, says. "Unless you're strong enough to rebuke it, they'll keep coming back. You must speak the Word of God, knowing you have power in the name of Jesus."
Adams' remarks seem in line with Gordon Klingenschmitt, a former Navy Chaplain who has repeatedly claimed to have performed over 50 gay/lesbian exorcisms.
"People are recruited, people are deceived, and people make a choice," Klingenschmitt, who claims to have had about a 50 percent success rate in "curing" gayness via these exorcisms, has said. "They have a free will, moral choice....The marketing of homosexuality has an agenda, and that is to repopulate their population by recruiting the children of heterosexuals."
Similarly, Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association has reportedly said he believes exorcisms can “cure” people of homosexuality.
