We have heard plenty of theories for homosexuality, but this one might be the most ridiculous yet.
Bert Farias, a pastor and founder of Holy Fire Ministries, has said the reason why people are homosexual is because they are possessed by fart demons.
He claims that once a person chooses to be gay, it opens them up to engaging in ‘unclean demonic practices’.
And then once that happens, they are possessed by foul-smelling demons that even pigs will not tolerate.
In an article published for Charisma Magazine, he begged gay people to ‘not get upset with me’ for trying to teach them the ‘raw, naked truth about homosexuality’.
‘[You] will see that I am actually trying to help you,’ Farias says.
‘Homosexuality is actually a demon spirit. It is such a putrid smelling demon that other demons don’t even like to hang around it.
‘A genuine prophet of God told me that the Lord allowed him to smell this demon spirit, and he got sick to his stomach.
‘And yet as humans, many embrace this demon. Yes, you heard me right. Being gay is demonic.
‘There is an account in the Bible where Jesus casts out 2,000 demons out of a man. The demons came out screaming and begged Jesus to send them into the pigs.
‘The pigs didn’t want them, so they ran down a steep hill and were drowned in the sea. Pigs have more sense than some humans.
‘People embrace homosexual demons, but the pigs would rather die than be possessed with demons.’
He continued: ‘From a biblical perspective the rise of homosexuality is a sign that a society is in the last stages of decay.
‘And here is another terrible truth: As people continue to reject God, He gives them over to increasingly immoral and self-destructive activities.
‘There are destructive physical, emotional, and spiritual consequences resulting from homosexual behavior.’
Farias concluded: ‘Our culture’s acceptance and celebration of gay behavior will never make it right. Wrong is wrong no matter how many people are for it. And right is right no matter how many people are against it.
‘Homosexuality is not new. It’s been around for thousands of years. It’s as old as the devil himself.’
