Gay people are actually just possessed by ghosts, paranormal ‘experts’ claim

A paranormal organisation with thousands of followers is claiming that most gay men are actually possessed by ghosts.

The Spiritual Science Research Foundation, which claims to be a “world leader in spiritual research”, made the astounding claim on its website.

In an article on ghost possession, the organisation claimed that 85 percent of gay people are possessed by ghosts.

It claims: “The main reason behind the gay orientation of some men is that they are possessed by female ghosts.

“It is the female ghost in them that is attracted to other men. Conversely the attraction to females experienced by some lesbians is due to the presence of male ghosts in them.

“The ghost’s consciousness overpowers the person’s normal behaviour to produce the homosexual attraction. Spiritual research has shown that the cause for homosexual preferences lie predominantly in the spiritual realm.”

A graphic breaks down the causes of homosexuality as:

“Physical causes (5%): Due to hormonal changes.
“Psychological causes (10%): Having an experience with a person of the same sex as a teenager or young adult that was pleasurable and therefore wanting to experience it again.
“Spiritual causes (85%): Mainly ghosts.”

The website continues: “Due to being possessed by ghosts, the majority of the LGBT population is more susceptible to being influenced by negative energies who give them thoughts to encourage them to display their homosexuality in a shameless and even aggressive manner.

“Among the LGBT population the primary focus in life is their homosexuality and all else revolves around it. In Gay Parades, there are also elements of exhibitionism and narcissism. It is in a way selfish to showcase one’s own homosexuality. Should the heterosexual community then also showcase their heterosexuality? Basically, sexuality is something private and should be kept private and not displayed in public.

“Just as we teach children not to play in dirty water or eat mud, we need to educate society what is correct from a spiritual perspective. By failing to do so, we run the risk of a further decline in Righteousness and consequently people in society will become more unhappy.”

The SSRF also claims that Pride parades emit negative energy, and that “the hosting city where the Gay Parade is held has a direct impact of being affected by negative energies for up to 10 km. Indirectly, black covering (negative energy) over the city increases and it subtly spreads farther than 10 km.”

According to the group, having gay sex is five percent as sinful as murder.

The group also includes a handy guide of “simple steps” to cure ghost-driven homosexuality.

Apparently, you can drive out homosexuality by chanting ‘Om Rudraya namaha’ 108 times, before making a circle with your thumb and forefinger for 45 minutes,  before channelling the energy to your forehead.

The SSRF, which was set up by an Indian hypnotist, identifies its base as a shopping centre in New Jersey. It has hundreds of thousands of followers on Facebook and Twitter despite its surreal beliefs.
