    The website Life Productions traces to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

    This is what I found at the time:

    Renewal-Date: 2008/09/23
    Date-Approved: 2003/09/23
    Date-Modified: 2005/10/06
    Organization: Jason Johns

    The rest is at BDBO.

    Sault Ste. Marie is north northwest of Sudbury, about 300 kilometres.
    The commercial would have been dropped off at the Sault station, all their news and advertising airs out of MCTV Sudbury.

    Sault Ste. Marie is a border town.

    I wrote MCTV and I wrote Life Productions, of course no one wrote back. Since CTV corporate got involved the regional station isn’t going to say a word.

    Very nice work Timothy, thank you.

    The webpage of John Westcott that you linked to is so heartbreakingly sad and disturbing.

    I’m at least glad that they make it pretty clear that they don’t make people’s gay attractions and desires go away. They say right on the webpage that you will have a daily struggle and that you just have to come to a place that you want to please God and Jesus more than you want to have sex with a man.

    That is so incredibly unhealthy; physically, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually. It just breaks my heart that so many thousands of men and women are putting themselves through this kind of abuse.

    We who are out and happy aren’t doing a good enough job of showing the world that being gay doesn’t mean being a drug addict, porn addict, sex addict, miserable or all of the other things that these people have come to believe. It’s the despair of believing these lies that drives people into the snake oil salesmen’s lairs.

    This is tragic, but I swear these organizations are following the lead of The Onion‘s opinion page where they show the same pictures of “man on the street” week to week, but the names and descriptions are different.

    soooo…. anyone else e-mailing or contacting his organization(s) about this? Any investigative reporters in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario or Winter Park, FL?

    This man is John Westcott and he is married to Dena as in the original article made by lifesitenews ( http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2008/mar/08031002.html ) which http://www.catholic.org used but misquote the name. John’s testimony is true and amazing and bring hope to those who wants to hear it … you can know more about it here : http://www.exchangeministries.org

    I saw this Westcott on Bill Maher Religulous film. He is a very virile sexy guy!

    Having never seen Mr. Westcott previous to “Religulous,” I must agree with Mr. Mahr. My immediate impression was, “WOW, HE’S REALLY GAY!” And that was before I knew anything about what that portion of the segment contained. Face it John, a rose by any other name still smells REALLY GAY. LIKE YOU.

    Thank you, Joyce, for the clarification.

    It’s nice to finally know for certain that the man claiming to be worried about what is “being taught in our public schools” in Sudbury, Ontario, actually lives thousands of miles away in a different country.

    John Westcott is a joke.

    I worked with John for 9-years when we were with Chamberlin Natural Foods. He had a long-term relationship with another employee who passed away. Following this he began filling his life with the Church when he met Dena. They married and started a family while he was still with Chamberlins and they struggled like any aother young married couple. Both John and Dena were alway an open book on their past and even though I haven’t seen them for 6 -7 years it sadens me that they are no longer together. I will say that both of them have publicly witnessed and tried to live their lives in a more religious manner than any other person I have met in my life … whatever their failings. Whether you agree with them or not, they have at least made an effort to ACTIVELY follow their religious beliefs which is better than most of us.

    Steve, actively following one’s religious beliefs isn’t an honourable thing.

    Steve Nelson, Thank you for sharing a genuine testimony about John Westcott. I agree with you when you state that John and Dena making an effort to actively follow their religious beliefs is a good thing. I am sure that the mocking manner in which Mr. Maher treated John in his interview, followed by it’s inclusion for broadcast in “Religulous” could not have been an easy thing to endure for this family. You’re a good guy for being a loving and supportive friend.
