Join Our Coalition and Help us Fight Anti-Ex-Gay Extremism

Emboldened by recent victories in California and New Jersey, anti-ex-gay extremists are out to take away the rights of every parent and minor they can possibly get a hold of, regardless of the violations to free speech, religious freedom, and the evidence that shows that people can and do experience chance in sexual orientation. In the last few months, they have introduced legislation in roughly ten states to ban therapy for minors who seek to overcome unwanted same-sex attractions.


As justification for their cause, which they endlessly play the victim card, they point to bizarre practices from other countries that are not mainstream treatments by any licensed mental health practitioner in the United States.


If that doesn’t work, they simply make stories up, as we saw with Brielle Goldani in New Jersey last year. Goldani claimed to have been sent to a “conversion therapy torture camp” in Ohio in 1999 called “True Directions.” But what we uncovered was an absolute fraud. Goldani never went to such a camp. She made the whole thing up, basing her “testimony” from a 1997 movie starring draq queen RuPaul called “But I’m a Cheerleader.”


Yes, the lies never end with these anti-ex-gay extremists. Even when their fraud is exposed, they continue to make more outrageous claims, like Troy Stevenson of Equality New Jersey did last year, when he claimed there were eight “conversion therapy torture camps” across the United States. Yet, when we repeatedly asked Troy to give us the names of the camps so we can investigate them, he refused.

Are Anti-Gay Laws Created Because of Anti-Gay Countries?

Last week I was interviewed by The Christian Post about Nigeria’s recently enacted law that prohibits same-sex marriage.


According to the Christian Post:


Dozens of gay men have reportedly been arrested in Nigeria, where a new law that bans same-sex marriage and makes participation in homosexual organizations illegal under the threat of imprisonment.


I want to be extremely clear that in no way do I condone or encourage the use of punitive measures towards people who are same-sex attracted or identify themselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT).


In the Christian Post article, I was quoted as saying:

Christopher Doyle, president of Voice of the Voiceless, an advocacy organization that works to support former homosexuals and individuals with unwanted same-sex attraction (SSA), said Tuesday that the law is ‘overly punitive’ and could create an environment of fear instead of one where people struggling with SSA can get help. ‘In that sense it sort of drives the discourse around this issue underground, and I don’t think that’s a good thing,’ said Doyle. He also says Nigeria, Uganda, Russia and India – nations that are taking hardline stances against homosexuality – might be acting in response to what they’re seeing in Western cultures. Gay activism has forced a political correctness on many Western cultures, he says, which prevents those who believe in traditional marriage from sharing their beliefs without repercussions.

Gay activists continue to play the victim card around the world, but their story is getting old. However, the media still plays into their narratives. For example, just this week Bill O’Reilly had Juan Williams and another commentator slam Vladimir Putin’s recent comments, telling gays to “leave the children in peace” when athletes come to Sochi boycott-sochi-olympicsfor the Olympic games in February.

O’Reilly and company joked about how un-evolved and ignorant Putin is when it comes to gay rights while condemning the Russian anti-gay propaganda law, which passed in their legislative body 436-0. But in actuality, O’Reilly and just about the entire mainstream media are really the ones who are unable to think critically on this issue.

As I said in The Christian Post article, anti-gay laws in countries like Uganda, Nigeria, India, and Russia are not being created in a vacuum. I would argue that they are also not in direct response to indigenous gay rights movements. These countries are enacting laws as a response to gay activists’ intolerance towards traditional views on marriage and sexuality, and their attempts to silence the speech and beliefs of those who disagree with them. These activists are largely succeeding with their goals in Western countries, and are now importing their Communist strategies into other non-Western countries to achieve global dominance.


Don’t believe me? Take a look at the long list of homofacism that is taking the United States by storm. There are now dozens of documented cases where gay activists have played the victim card to force religious individuals and businesses to violate their conscience rights in the name of “tolerance” and “equality.”


The end result is that the views of gay activists are held to be more important than those who disagree with them. Yes, the old Orwellian theme: “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” has proven to be true.


Inevitably, at some point in the Olympic games there will be a demonstration of pro-gay solidarity among some athletes, followed by a long lecture from NBC’s Bob Costas about how ignorant and uneducated Russians are, and how inspirational and courageous the gays are for standing up against oppressive laws. But before you buy into this narrative, perhaps you should question whether these laws are the result of anti-gay countries, or gay activist’s intolerance of opposing views and disrespect for the religious values of billions of people around the globe?


One this is for sure, we know the mainstream media won’t ask that question.

Holyfield comments test GLAAD’s tolerance meter

Yet again, gay activists have pointed a wagging judgmental finger, telling us one thing but doing another. Recently, there have been two reality TV stars that have come out as not supportive of homosexuality, sparking a wave of political outrage.

In December, the TV network A&E suspended Phil Robertson after GLAAD protested his comments regarding homosexuality in an interview with GQ magazine. Then in early January, Celebrity Big Brother UK “reprimanded” heavyweight boxing champ Evander Holyfield for voicing his view of homosexuality to a fellow contestant, Luisa Zissman. While discussing the number of openly gay men in the world of boxing, Holyfield stated that being gay was not normal and that it was something that could be changed.

In both instances, the comments were made in a respectful way without apology, but not good enough for GLAAD, the gay rights keeper of the tolerance flame. These are only the latest instances of GLAAD’s oppression of anyone who disagrees with them while simultaneously demanding that everyone else be tolerant. In 2012, GLAAD published what it dubbed the Commentator’s Accountability Project. Although officially not intended to get commentators off the air, the character assassination attempt is quite apparent. Then in 2013, GLAAD reviled National Geographic for not including a disclaimer regarding the Boy Scout’s policy on homosexuality before their reality TV show, Are You Tougher Than A Boy Scout.  Apparently, being respectful and non-judgmental is no longer considered to be tolerant. According to GLAAD’s behavior, tolerance is not disagreeing with their position, period.  Seems to me the roles have reversed. Now it is the “oppressed minority” who has become the oppressor, trying to silence any form of dissent from their world view.
Thankfully, all is not lost. In the days and weeks following his suspension, Phil Robertson received a lot of grassroots support, especially through social media, and even saw a significant rise in book sales. A&E eventually reinstated Phil, reportedly as a financial move to keep viewership, citing the usual disclaimer about the network not endorsing the views of any one particular actor.

Although vocal support for Evander Holyfield  was not as strong as it was for Robertson, he has had people step into his corner. Mostly notably, the Atlanta based Overcomers Network,  committed to promoting peer to peer empowerment and sexual holiness, especially when it comes to EXLGBT issues. The Network released a statement saying that Holyfield respectfully told the honest truth and pulled no punches.

“Evander hasn’t lived a perfect life and we all know that”, said Pastor DL Foster, Founder and President of the ON, “but you don’t have to be perfect to tell the truth.”

Lesbian Feminist Camille Paglia: “Sexual Orientation is Fluid and Can Change”

Camille-Paglia-01.jpgLesbian feminist and university professor Camille Paglia was recently a guest on the Dennis Prager show. I have included a brief discourse of one of her segments that was interesting, especially in light of the fact that she is a self-identified lesbian. Her analysis on the current trend of psychology, which she says is being destroyed by politics, is priceless. Below the quote is a link to listen to the entire interview.

“Every single gay person I know has some sort of drama going on, back in childhood. Something was happening that we’re not allowed to ask about anymore . . . I can see patterns that are similar in my background to that of other women I know who are lesbians, but the biggest patterns are in gay men. Every single gay man I know had a particular pattern where for whatever reason, he was closer to his mother than to his father, and there was some sort of distance between the mother and the father, so that she looked to her son as her real equal or friend, as the real companion of her soul. Sometimes these women were discreet and dignified. Other times, they were very theatrical and in a sense they drafted their son into their own drama. But now, you are not allowed to ask any questions about the childhood of gay people anymore. It’s called ‘homophobic’. The entire psychology establishment has shut itself down, politically . . . and also, Freud was kicked out by early feminism in the late 60s and early 70s. So all the sophistication of analysis that I knew in my college years when I went to the state university of New York – there were a group of radical young Jewish students from the New York area – they were so psychologically sophisticated in being able to analyze the family background. It’s all gone, that entire discourse is gone. Everything is political now. Families are bankrupting themselves, sending their kids to the elite schools to learn a political style of analysis (that says) ‘every single thing in the human person has been formed by some external force upon us, we are oppressed, it’s being inscribed on us’. It’s really sick. It’s a sick and stupid way of looking at human psychology . . . we are in a period now of psychological stupidity.”
