Therapist Says A Crayon Coloring From His Patients Is Proof That Ex-Gay Therapy Works (VIDEO)

pray away the gay

Ex-gay therapist Jerry Mungadze claims not only that he can make gays turn straight, but that he can tell if his patients have ‘recovered’ from homosexuality by having them color a picture.

I swear this is not satire.

While Mungadze is not the first to claim to be able to ‘cure’ homosexuality, he is the first so-called therapist I’ve seen who has actually claimed that a couple of crayons and a drawing of a brain could tell him if his client is cured. Apparently, Mungadze claims that when a person is gay, they will use more ‘feminine’ colors, such as pink, in their coloring. In the video clip below, he claims that he can tell, just by what colors a person uses, if they have been sexually or physically abused, or even if they are suicidal, which are, apparently, indicators of homosexuality or a “great spiritual battle.”

Here’s the clip:

Mungadze recently went on a Christian show and claimed that after ‘therapy’ with him, he can see differences in the colors his patients use to color their brains. This is, he claims, proof that his therapy works. In his own words:

The good news is, at least with the people that I’ve seen, not a lot of people, when the healing takes place those areas of the brain that were showing the homosexuality show heterosexuality. I have had several people who when I looked at them I couldn’t tell the difference between a heterosexual who never was homosexual and them, which means the brain is able to go back and fire the way it is supposed to be, which is an argument against the whole idea of someone was born that way.

Watch that video here:

It’s already ridiculous enough to claim that anyone can be ‘cured’ of being gay. But to say that you can prove it with a coloring page and some crayons instead of a brain scan is just preposterous. Of course, what else could be expected of the religious right? Mungadze doesn’t have a degree in psychology or medicine, but in counseling and biblical studies. He is a Licensed Professional Counselor, not a psychologist, and yet claims to be an expert in neurotherapy. Further, while art therapy is commonly used to help people work through trauma, there is no valid scientific research that says it is able to diagnose. There is also no research, other than Mungadze’s less than scientific approach, to indicate that ‘crayon therapy’ is useful at all. He may as well be in a little tent at a carnival charging $5 a pop to read your mind.

At least then it would be “for entertainment purposes only.”
