Watch: Reading The Bible Is Fundamental For Born Again, Ex-Gay Milo Yiannopoulos

"The way of the fool is right in his own eyes," reads Milos Yiannopoulos from the book of Psalms in a video posted this week on his YouTube channel. It was the line that resonated in a one-minute video to promote the ex-gay, ex-Brietbart editor's newest venture: reading the Bible on camera.

"The first production will consist of the "ex-gay" activist reading Bible verses aloud for what he calls an audiobook, at the very least," reports LGBTQ Nation.


In the artful video, Yiannopoulos stands in front of a microphone in close-up, reading from pages with scruffy facial hair. His long hair pushed back, he is wearing tortoiseshell glasses and a dark suit accented with green-and-blue striped tie. Synthesized chords drone in the background.

The British far-right provocateur and former editor of Breitbart said that he "narrates Psalms, Proverbs, and Revelations" verses in this upcoming audiobook.

The full narration is scheduled to be released this fall, he added.

"Milo promoted it on the social messaging app Telegram and right-wing social network Gab, produced in conjunction with TruNews and presented by the Flowing Streams Church, both founded by anti-LGBTQ pastor Rick Wiles. Their operations are run out of Vero Beach, Florida," LGBTQ Nation writes.

Wiles is also the founder of TruNews, which also seems to be a part of the partnership working to release a Milo Yiannopoulos version of the Bible for their shared audience, reports the website hillreporter.com.

"If Wiles' name and the name of his media website don't ring any bells for you, here's a little of their history. Rick Wiles has previously made headlines for COVID-19 denial and antivax conspiracy theories (after which he himself was hospitalized with the virus), and in fact, when his staff became sick, he even theorized it could be because Yiannopoulos appeared on his show."




The last evolved in a rant by commentator Rachel Witzke who in early June claimed that Covid infection that hit the TruNews office came because of Wiles welcoming Yiannopoulos into his fold.

"I don't think it's any coincidence that the TruNews crew all got deathly ill, all got very sick, right after they had — they brought Milo onto the show. And he showed, he shared his testimony," Witzke began.

"We have to remember this is a spiritual battle as well and our enemy retaliates. What this is, I believe, in my opinion, that this was retaliation," she continued. "We constantly battle the demonic spirits, demonic attacks on ourselves, and we as Christians must stay equipped [except for getting inoculated against a pandemic-inducing virus] and also we must continue to stay prayerful as we walk into these times, where the enemy, it seems like he has the upper hand, but it was no coincidence that Rick and his crew are in the situation that they were in. Because they stood for Christ and had, you know, the spine to bring Milo on and share his platform and his testimony. Milo was somebody who belonged to the darkness. He was already Satan's — Satan's favorite sodomite — wasn't he? We took him back. Christ took him back."

Witzke expressed her views with Yiannopoulos sitting beside her.

Yiannopoulos renounced his "gay lifestyle" in March 2020. EDGE reported at the time the 36-year-old ex-friend of Dorothy said: "Of course, I was never wholly at home in the gay lifestyle. Who is? Who could be ... I only leaned heavily into it in public because it drove liberals crazy to see a handsome, charismatic, intelligent gay man riotously celebrating conservative principles."

This past March it was announced that he was opening a conversion therapy facility in Florida, where he now resides. In May he took a cruise somewhere off the Hawaiian Islands to toss his $150,000 engagement ring (he called the "Sodomy Stone") into the Pacific to the strains of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On." Then in June he announced that since becoming an ex-gay, dogs have stopped barking at him, which he took as a sign from God.
