- Hope for the Homosexual: First Stone Ministries – September 2008 Covenant Eyes Blog – News
This is a blog post/article written by Luke Gilkerson with Covenant Eyes posted on September 29, 2008. I was very honored and blessed by Luke’s well written and kindly representation of our ministry and work at First Stone after he interviewed me for this article.
Here’s a statement from Luke I am very grateful for, as many are uninformed.
“But no type of ministry is perhaps as overlooked, underfunded, and stigmatized as a ministry to homosexuals.
The church exists to be a redemptive community for all types of people with all types of sexual brokenness—heterosexual and homosexual sin—and this is what First Stone Ministries (FSM)of Oklahoma is all about.”

Freedom of Speech Rally – Oklahoma Capitol Rotunda – April 2, 2008 ~ Rally for Sally by Stephen Black – Speech Transcript
I had a wonderful and rare opportunity to share my testimony in the beautiful newly renovated Oklahoma Capitol. It was an amazing time. This is the day the community Rallied for Sally Kern as the gay activists had their “day” – “the Shame on You Sally Rally” and it was sad. Citizens are concerned about the political gay agenda and it was obvious by the several thousand that were present that day for this terrific day at the Oklahoma State Capitol. It was truly a day to remember!

Why They Fall (2006)
This is an article was wrote after the Ted Haggard scandal was exposed, Mr. Haggard was caught lying about being in a homosexual affair. This is a reminder for all leaders.

Brokeback Mountain Brokenness (2005)
Written to communicate “WHY” I would not see the movie: Brokeback Mountain, and why I believe others shouldn’t see either. Yet there are many even Christian leaders that justified needing to see what Hollywood put out so as to answer the movie critically and effectively. I would merely ask is that sincerely a Biblical reason?
