US writer blames Leelah Alcorn’s suicide on demonic possession
Conservative Christian writer Gina Miller has blamed the suicide of Leelah Alcorn on demon possession.
In a article published on US “grassroots organization” site Renew America Ms Miller wrote about Leelah Alcorn’s suicide, misgendering her and placing the blame on mental illness and demons.
Leelah Alcorn took her own life after coming out as trans to her parents, suffering rejection, isolation and forced Christian “conversion therapy”. She published her suicide note on Tumblr, ending with a call to “Fix society. Please.”
Ms Miller said of Leelah’s parents: “From the stories I’ve read, they cared very deeply for their son, and they knew he had serious mental problems.
“They tried to get help for him, and I would guess they prayed their hearts out for him, but in the end, he chose the tragic final solution, as do many other people who absurdly believe they are the opposite sex.”
She went on to discuss her belief in demon possession: “Not everyone will like to hear this, but demon possession certainly plays a part in homosexuality and “transgenderism.”
“In the Bible, we see that demon possession was commonly acknowledged and understood to be prevalent, but the knowledge of it has been largely lost or buried today, as if our “modern” culture is too “smart” to give credence to the reality of spiritual forces at work in people today, just as they were then.
“We often read that some who are homosexual or “transgender” have believed this since they were children. Demons do not spare children any more than adults.
In Mark, chapter 9, we read of the father who comes to Jesus asking that the Lord help free his son from demon possession. Jesus asks the father how long his son has been possessed, and the father tells Him “since he was a child.” How many of these cases today are demon-related? I don’t know, but it is certainly a factor.”
