The controversial exorcism, performed by Manifested Glory Ministries, has solicited hundreds of calls for a widespread investigation.
Robin McHaelin, executive director of Connecticut-based gay rights group True Colors condemned the act in an interview with the Associated Press. “They’re murdering his spirit. They have this kid in a full nelson. That just seems abusive to me.”
McHaelin also said her group knows of at least five similar ceremonies that have taken place in the past few years.
