Dr. David Ford

Thank you very much for The Ten LGBTQ Commandments (TransExodus 666 [The Queen James Bible]), Jennifer Davis. So sad and tragic this is what we’ve come to in our land. May your brilliant satire jolt many into seeing the demonic—and Marxist and Freudian—undergirding of the LGBT movement.

To add to my previous comment, some might think that this satire is too extreme—that it doesn’t accurately depict the beliefs of many people who identify with the LGBT movement. That may be true, but I think it is a pretty fair representation of the beliefs of most of the LGBT political activists of our day. And often, the more deeply committed people are to any erroneous ideology, the stronger the message has to be to shake them out of their confusion and delusion. May this satire be an example of such tough love—loving people enough to risk their displeasure in trying to touch their conscience for what is right and good and true in the sight of our Creator and Savior, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Dr. Ford’s brilliantly scholarly analysis of, and deeply theological and pastoral response to, the demonic, Marxist, and Freudian roots of sexual and gender diversity in human nature appeared originally on February 1-2, 2020 at the rigorously academic online publication, OrthodoxNet. He has previously gone on record applauding the call by Father John Parker, dean of St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary, to execute the editors of Orthodoxy in Dialogue, Public Orthodoxy, and The Wheel—all publications for which Dr. Ford has written.

    I am a psychoanalyst. What does professor ford have against Freud ?
    Is this just more of the usual Orthodox anti-intellectualism and the Church’s hatred and fear of science ?
