“Homophobic Hate Crime” claim made by quiff turns out to be a hoax

The problem is, when gay men become mainstream and mundane, they will hate planet Earth – not enough attention focused on them.

A man who accused a North Carolina church of holding him against his will and abusing him because he’s gay has recanted. He says he lied about the church violence and about being gay.

word_of_faithTwenty-two-year-old Michael Lowry told The Associated Press he was sorry for making accusations against the Word of Faith Fellowship.

In a prior interview with AP, Lowry had said he fled after the church confined him to a locked building on church grounds because he was gay. He also had claimed that from August 2011 to November 2011 he was taken to the building and beaten and abused, part of his “ex-gay” treatment.

Rutherfordton County Sheriff’s Detective Sergeant Jamie Keever said he has met with Lowry and the investigation is continuing. Lowry could face charges associated with filing a false report.

The district attorney presented the case to a grand jury, but it’s unclear what will happen next.

Lowry filed his complaint against the church last year, with support from a group called Faith in America, which said Lowry was the victim of a hate crime.

    He says he lied about the church violence and about being gay.

    All you will hear about in the press is what I’ve bolded and italicized above. They’ll make him out to be some conservative religious person who they are trying to pigeon-hole as a nutcase. They will gloss over the violence and the reasons why he did this. They will focus like a laser on him lying about being gay. There will be “gay experts” about how this type of “hate” just hurts us all. Yada, yada, yada.

    Thanks, @$$hole! Now we’ll have to put up with every homosexual in the US telling us how this episode has hurt them personally.

    It is the old story about needing his five minutes in the spotlight of fame…. so sad but true…. I say he has earned the privilege of servicing the big guys at the local state prison in gen pop… He will finally admit he loves it up his bummer… and swallowing as much tube steak with cream as they can give him…. happy O days ….
