    I was just wondering if this is true, a person at work told me about this. I figured the truth would be found here.

    I seriously doubt it...

    KING: Do you — what are your thoughts when you say you love all people? What are your thoughts about — you mentioned earlier judge not lest you be judged. Do you judge homosexuality?
    MEYER: Well, I knew you’d ask me this, too.
    KING: I think you’re more of a psychic than a (INAUDIBLE).
    MEYER: No…
    KING: You knew something I didn’t know, because I never know what I’m going to ask.
    MEYER: But I kind of watch what you’ve been asking, those questions. Obviously, Larry, if I believe the Bible, then I don’t believe that a gay lifestyle or a homosexual lifestyle is the right way to choose to live. I believe that there’s something so much better.
    KING: You believe it’s a choice?
    MEYER: I believe it’s definitely a choice.
    KING: So you chose heterosexuality?
    MEYER: Yes.
    KING: How did you choose it? Because I chose it, but I don’t remember how I chose it. I mean, I’m heterosexual, but I don’t know why I’m heterosexual.
    MEYER: Yeah.
    KING: I know that I’m heterosexual.
    MEYER: Well, I think that that’s the natural way that God intended us to be. I just followed the natural way that I was. I didn’t have to consciously think, do I want to do this or don’t I?
    KING: So the people who are gay then chose it?
    MEYER: I believe that, yes.
    KING: Why would they choose it?
    MEYER: I think a lot of different reasons. I believe a lot of people that are gay, had even had problems like I had in the past. I think they’ve been hurt by somebody from the opposite sex, and they don’t know how to function right in those relationships.
    When you’re hurt very badly in your childhood, the area that it has the greatest effect on is relationships. Once you feel like you can’t trust people, once you feel like that they don’t care about you, that they’re really not going to take care of you, it gets very difficult in relationships. And you know, I’ve been so mistreated by male authority in my life that I had a terrible time in my marriage trying to be a submissive wife, you know. I mean, I wanted to rule the roost in everything. And it wasn’t even really that I was rebellious; I was afraid of being hurt. And I think that a lot of people that choose these alternative lifestyles, I think it’s because they’ve been hurt somewhere along the line very badly.
    KING: We’ll be right back with Joyce Meyer. The book soon to come — I’ll ask about it — “Approval Addiction” what does she mean by that after this.

    ==Not heard of it but I doubt its true. She did a moral majority type campaign a few years ago.

    Will look into it.

    Do you have a source?

    This was part of a Larry King interview. I don't think she supported same-sex marriage:

    MEYER: But I kind of watch what you've been asking, those questions. Obviously, Larry, if I believe the Bible, then I don't believe that a gay lifestyle or a homosexual lifestyle is the right way to choose to live. I believe that there's something so much better.

    KING: You believe it's a choice?

    MEYER: I believe it's definitely a choice.

    KING: So you chose heterosexuality?

    MEYER: Yes.

    KING: How did you choose it? Because I chose it, but I don't remember how I chose it. I mean, I'm heterosexual, but I don't know why I'm heterosexual.

    MEYER: Yeah.

    KING: I know that I'm heterosexual.

    MEYER: Well, I think that that's the natural way that God intended us to be. I just followed the natural way that I was. I didn't have to consciously think, do I want to do this or don't I?

    KING: So the people who are gay then chose it?

    MEYER: I believe that, yes.

    KING: Why would they choose it?

    MEYER: I think a lot of different reasons. I believe a lot of people that are gay, had even had problems like I had in the past. I think they've been hurt by somebody from the opposite sex, and they don't know how to function right in those relationships.
