Whatever Happened to Michael Glatze?

Jim Burroway

October 8th, 2009

You may remember him. He’s the young former editor of GYA magazine, which was aimed toward gay youth. He later decided go the ex-gay path and briefly became a featured speaker on the ex-gay circuit. He was even featured in an interview with NARTH’s Joseph Nicolosi (PDF: 544KB/12 pages) and spoke at their convention that year. Then there were reports that he abandoned Evangelical Christianity and embraced Mormonism. And then, he seemed to have disappeared.

David Roberts at Ex-Gay Watch has gotten us caught up to date. He’s still out there, looking for attention. He recently posted a column for World Net Daily which confirms his flirtation with Mormonism. But now he’s back to Evangelical Christianity. He’s also at great pains to reassure readers that he’s not crazy. Unfortunately, as Roberts points out, Glatze’s blog posts leaves his mental health open to question. That blog, by the way, was “straightened up” — kind of — after Ex-Gay Watch exposed his racists rants.

Actually, Glatze’s blog was not cleaned up, afterall. He put the very-offensive posts back up, and even defends them. This man is a psychopath of the worst kind.

He’s a psychopath of the worst kind, but he’s working for the enemy so all the bullshit’s on their side of the fence. I feel sorry for him having such evident mental health problems, but I have absolutely no sympathy for the ex-gay wingnuts: they wanted poster-boys at any cost; the “any cost” bit was this guy and John Paulk.

I had a brief exchange with him. To my surprise he was pleasant and expressed a willingness to consider my viewpoint. Whether he was sincere or not I’m not sure.

Borderline Personality Disorder

I’m not a medical professional, but I have had several friends diagnosed with this illness, enough to recognize signs.

His blog has been removed. I’m glad to see a bit less hate on the ‘Net, but I hope he’s OK.
