Video of Gay Exorcism in Connecticut Church Causing Outrage

A video of a teen undergoing an exorcism in a Connecticut church to rid him of "homosexual demons" is causing outrage among many gay activists.

A video of a teen undergoing an exorcism to rid him of "homosexual demons" is causing outrage among many gay activists. 
 
Posted on YouTube, the video features elder members of the Manifested Glory Ministries Church in Bridgeport, Connecticut, exorcising "demons" out of a 16-year-old boy. The video captures a church leader screaming "Right now I command you to leave!"

The boy is shown moaning and screaming while rolling around on the ground. The video even shows the teen vomiting at one point during the ordeal. 
 
The event seen in the video has not been confirmed as a gay exorcism, references to the sexual orientation of the boy are repeated throughout the video, strongly suggesting the process was a gay exorcism. References include an elder of the church screaming to the teen "Right now in the name of Jesus, I call the homosexuality, right now in the name of Jesus." 
 
The 20 minute video does not clarify if the subject suffered physical injury, despite appearing to go through near seizures. When exactly the video was made is also unclear, but advocacy groups for gay youth say the video is abuse and are working to get authorities involved in the matter.

Robin McHaelen, executive director of True Colors plans on reporting what was documented in the video to the Connecticut Department of Children and Families, the LA Times reports. 
 
The video can no longer be found on YouTube, but it continues to circulate on the internet.
