The president of the country's best-known Christian ministry dedicated to helping people repress same-sex attraction through prayer is trying to distance the group from the idea that gay people's sexual orientation can be permanently changed or "cured."

"But he said '99.9 percent' of people he's encountered in two decades with Exodus were not able to completely rid themselves of same-sex attraction."

And the other .1% are lying. This revolting group of christian idiots needs to apologize for all the harm they've caused then disband immediately.

“ WOOF !”

Gay therapy for gays doesn't seem to work to get them to confront their real selves either. The latest example is the gay, whose been extensively lauded, given awards, held as a mainstay leader in the gay community and was the first to start a same sex law suit to usurp "marriage" to the gay community. Seems he's now being processed because of child pornography, which involves him having two and three year olds give him blow jobs.

Perversion is perversion. Gays need to examine themselves and see exactly why they should become celibate, self-controlled and psychologically neutered. Otherwise, they spend their lives rationalizing weirdness and maladjustment like the guy above mentioned.

If you're ex-gay, you may as well be ex-human. It's who and what you are, to deny who and what you are is not better than being religious.

This is probably the most important part of this article:

"For those that don't hold to the same Biblical ethic that I do, I think there's room for further discussion without a culture war that has really served no one," Chambers said. "I think it's time for us in the church to move on from that fight."

That is public relations crap. They still wish to defame and disfranchise healthy, out glbt people.

And the culture war has served the talibangelicals' fundierai$ing efforts quite well. It's just now they're beginning to _lose_ the culture war on our rights that they started. So they wish to suddenly appear "more moderate."

By the way, they don't even totally denounce reparations [sic] therapy. They just say they won't do it much.

My question is, why hasn't David Moore of the many sock-puppets jumped on this thread? He ALWAYS haunts all of the "ex-gay therapy" threads.

What makes this one different?

It is easy to mock, but how many posts can _you_ make per hour in the glbt forum while typing one handed and breathing heavily? Huh?
