    Which raises the question: are there any ‘former lesbians’ who are in leadership in the ex-gay movement?

    No, because girl on girl sex is HOT! Unlike icky gay male sex.

    Nearest I can think of Tim is Yvette Cantu/Schneider. She used to be a leader but now she pretty much is a go to quote giver.

    Mark F, you actually are pretty funny. But you might want to troll over to ChicksNotDicks.com and not Box Turtle. By the way, there aren’t any real turtles here if that is what you was a lookin fer.

    “Speaking opportunities..?”

    Unh hunh, right. For the FRC? Maybe she’ll take Rekers job.
    How fast do you think she shot her resume their way once this sh*tstorm started?

    They are all a bunch of barnacles if you asked me.

    Maurice, I’m pretty sure Mark F. was making a point, tongue in cheek. This is how many “anti-gay” people think.

    What about her employment at Focus would preclude her taking advantage of speaking engagements?

    I thought that was the whole point of hiring her. A pulbic face that could speak to the media and other interested groups.

    Something hinky is going on here. If it was part of the rest of the layoffs, they would just have said that. They made the point that she left. Something must have happened to cause her to leave.

    While the obvious thing to suspect would be some indiscretion on her part, this might also be part of a power struggle at FoTF in the wake of Dobson’s ouster.

    I hope she fades into obscurity and stays there. She’s done incalculable damage with her claims that 100% of GLBT people were sexually abused as children. Most of her audience are parents of GLBT kids. They’re left tormenting themselves with the belief that their kids must have been molested without their knowledge, because she’s presented as an “expert.” (“Could it have been the neighbor? the pastor? OMG, what if it was Uncle Fred?”) That’s a horribly cruel thing to do to any parent.

    Perhaps she will give let us know in due time. After reading her bio I assume that she has had a change of heart.

    Im really disappointed, as she was my favorite of the ex gays.

    emma said, “. . . she was my favorite of the ex gays.

    Not mine. My favorite ex-gay would be one that I never heard of – one that is not a professional ex-gay devoted to helping persecute and bully other gays into feeling self-loathing, and then cajoling them into following the same path as themselves of looking for relief from the self-loathing that they themselves helped create.

    It seems there is alot of rock hurling at Melissa. The term is grace…think any of us can do without it…why not put your rocks down…a thought, collect all your rocks and stop the oil spill! Something useful to build, not tare down.

    This is disgusting to me. I am a lesbian, and reading all of this leaves me dejected. I come from an extremely loving household, and I am the apple of bth of my parents’ eyes. I was taught justice and fairness from an early age. Both of my parents are liberal, and would never hurt anyone. How dare someone cast judgment and suggest that families are to blame for a person’s homosexuality?
