XGW reader David B. points out ex-gay minister Matthew C. Manning.

Mr. Manning’s web site states that he has miraculously received and maintained an HIV-negative diagnosis after suffering from full-blown AIDS. A story at CBN goes further, asserting that Mr. Manning was cured through prayer alone — even though Manning declined to provide documentation from his military doctors or an independent review of his complete medical records.

Mr. Manning’s testimony is primarily one of low self-esteem driving him to participate in casual and impersonal sexual activity. He inaccurately describes this as a homosexual lifestyle.

To his credit, Manning’s web site does not seem to espouse discrimination. His association with Pat Robertson, however, exposes him to considerable public skepticism.

Addendum: Matthew C. Manning’s ministry is discussed in greater detail here.
