American Patricia King Raises The Dead To Retain Belize’s Ban On Gay Sex

Meet Patricia King, pictured here sporting a tiger print blouse, QVC jewelry, and lesbian haircut. She’s a self-published author, self-proclaimed Christian prophet, and the leader of Extreme Prophetic Ministries.

In 2009, two of the organization’s members released a home video in which they claimed to have “rebuked a tornado” from blowing their house away by commanding it to “go in the name of Jesus.” (And thereby blow away somebody else’s house!)

Also in 2009, the organization promoted Uganda’s “kill the gays” legislation. In 2011, King herself released a video preaching something about raising the dead. (She also began peddling a how-to-raise-the-dead video series called “The Glory School,” available for the low, low price of $215.)

Now, according to a report by the Southern Poverty Law Center, King and company are back. This time they’re joining forces with the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a global organization based in Arizona dedicated to “spreading the gospel” and “transforming legal systems” the whole world over, in supporting a campaign to defend Belize’s anti-sodomy law. Because — well — what better way to spend their time and resources than meddling in another country’s business?

The SPLC’s report writes:

For three years, a ferocious legal and public relations battle has been waged in Belize, a Central American country of some 356,00 people, over an existing criminal statute that can lead to imprisonment for private sexual acts between consenting adults of the same sex. The fight is over the constitutionality of Section 53 of Belize’s criminal code, which prescribes a 10-year sentence for “carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any person or animal.” The ADF and a few other hard-line U.S.-based religious-right groups have joined this fight, providing legal and other advice to those seeking to keep LGBT sex illegal in as many countries as possible.

It goes on to say:

One U.S. group, Extreme Prophetic Ministries of Phoenix, lists support for Belize Action as one of its projects. Led by Patricia King, the ministry has been known to pray in mortuaries in an effort to raise the dead. One of its ministers, Caleb Lee Brundridge, reportedly traveled to Uganda in 2009 for an anti-gay conference that helped promote a proposed “kill the gays” law there.

Mike Airhart at Ex-Gay Watch makes a good point. Earlier this week, he wrote: “EPM’s weather-controlling magic spells and idolatry of the dead may make it appear benignly bizarre. But EPM represents an ongoing threat to the lives of sexual minorities in developing nations where far-right heresy, superstition, fake miracles, and scapegoating find an eager audience among poorly informed and disadvantaged communities.”

We reached out to EPM for a comment on their involvement with ADF, but did not hear back by press time. Perhaps King and her crew are too busy trying to bring Jesus back to life.

      The only thing she’s raising is the amount of cash in her bank account from morons too stupid to know any better.

      you know? the only thing reading this sort of idiocy makes me want to do is SUPPORT those who want to import Sharia law into North America!

      Because honestly, these “christians” (I use the word VERY loosely) are doing exactly what the Taliban and other extremist religious factions are doing: imposing THEIR beliefs on everyone around them.

      SO I say, let’s combat them by supporting the importation of Sharia Law for those who want it (I’m actually against the very idea of Sharia Law, but if it will piss of the christo-fascists, what the hell!)

      It’s Dominionism, pure and simple. They want their brand of Christianity to be in control of every aspect of society in every nation. Do some research on it. It’s frightening. So be glad these people are fools. If they weren’t, we’d REALLY be in danger.

      Surely they believe that to be unnecessary, having been done already?

      I guess these wheeling and dealings include more than a few Belize paid for trips and maybe a nice holiday or a even some condo by the beach for free. Who knows what creatures like this have up their sleeves to make a living on earth and make sure to try to make others hell on earth. I hope some shark snaps her up on her next free scuba trip to Belize, that now has been taken off my bucket list thank you very much but no thanks. There are friendlier shores in the world nearly as pretty and without the swamps etc…

      Fill her pussy with sugar water, crucify her upside down and put her on a red ant hill.

      Belize (formerly British Honduras) + right-wing American evangelical Christians = hom•ophobic perfect storm.

      Please God/gods, make these horrible extremist, hate-filled nutjobs go far, far away.

      @hf2hvit: Remind me to never piss you off. Having said that, I’ll bring the sugar water if you bring the cross.

      @hf2hvit: I’m more of a slash her achilles tendons and make her crawl through melted glass into a vat of carbolic acid.

      Your way is good too mind.

      My fuck buddy is from Belize and based on his stories about his childhood there they may have had the law but the sex was going on everywhere and was the second largest industry behind tourism.
