Trump’s spiritual adviser said a suicidal gay teen should have opted for ‘gay conversion therapy’

A 2004 book written by Dallas megachurch pastor and Trump spiritual adviser, Robert Jeffress, is getting some renewed attention for its promotion of the discredited “gay conversion therapy” thanks to a recent report from Media Matters.

In the book, Jeffress wrote about a high school senior named “Susan” who had just revealed to the world that she is gay. When Jeffress asked her how she thinks God feels about her sexuality, Susan replied that she now understands that God “created me with these desires, desires that I have had since I was a little girl.”

“For years I have been miserable trying to deny those feelings and have seriously contemplated suicide,” Susan continued. “But now that I have accepted who I am, I am happier than I have ever been in my life!”
But Jeffress saw no reason to celebrate Susan’s newfound confidence in her sexuality, writing that “homosexual relationships are neither ‘normal’ nor ‘healthy’” and that gay activists are working “to cover over the darkest secret associated with this perversion: child molestation.”
