Research claims 85% of LGBTQ+ people are possessed by ghostly entities

Just in time for Halloween we see why one organisation believes gay people are “possessed by ghosts”.

According to an article by the Spiritual Science Research Foundation, 85% of LGBTQ+ people are possessed by ghostly entities. The foundation which describes itself as a “world leader in spiritual research” claims in the article entitled ‘Symptoms of Ghost Affecting or Possessing a Person’, that “the main reason behind the gay orientation of some men is that they are possessed by female ghosts” and that it’s “the female ghost in them that is attracted to other men.”

Similarly, the piece claims that lesbians have “the presence of male ghosts in them”, which explains their attraction to women. The article goes on to say that the consciousness of the ghost “overpowers the person’s normal behaviour to produce the homosexual attraction,” and states that their research has shown that “the cause for homosexual preferences lie predominantly in the spiritual realm.”

Although the organisation attributes ghost possession as the leading cause of homosexuality, they also have an explanation for the remaining 15% of gay people. Using a pie chart, the “researchers” explain that the other “root causes of homosexuality” are down to physical hormonal changes and the psychological impact of having same-sex relations as a young adult.

The article goes on to state that because the LGBTQ+ community is largely “possessed by ghosts” the majority of the LGBTQ+ population is, therefore “more susceptible to being influenced by negative energies which give them thoughts to encourage them to display their homosexuality in a shameless and even aggressive manner.”

What the article describes as such “shameless” and “aggressive” displays include things like Pride parades and festivals as well as rallies and marches, which the Spiritual Science Research Foundation have deemed as public “showcases of “exhibitionism and narcissism”.

The piece explains that large celebrations like Pride parades are especially dangerous as they “emit negative energy for up to 10 km. Indirectly, black covering (negative energy) over the city increases, and it subtly spreads farther than 10 km.” Therefore, they advise individuals to refrain from participating and even watching Pride parades and urge readers to “educate others” on the supposed danger.

The organisation’s website also details ways in which one can avoid and overcome ghostly possession which leads to homosexuality and urges parents to educate their children of the supposed evil. If anything, it is an entertaining read as the ridiculousness of the claims made by the supposed “researchers” are comical, to say the least. Nonetheless, it is a scary thought that even in this day and age, there are select groups that view the LGBTQ+ community as “cursed” or “possessed”.
